I think a virtual 5k sounds awesome. Maybe some day we can do a real 5k together since we are in the same area! emoticon That is really something to look forward to!

Welcome GEOODDITY!

You sound so hopeful and bright! Just what I needed this morning! I'm a slow starter here. ATM I am only doing one mile walks at home using YouTube videos. Though I am thinking about pumping it and doing one of SparkPeoples virtual 5ks.

Hope to see posts from you daily!

Hello everyone! I am hoping that this will be the right place for me to join. I actually live in Pleasant Hill and loving it here. I moved here in October of last year. I have recently gotten active on Spark People again to hold myself accountable to, well, anyone who may read my page haha. I am always looking for someone to walk/jog with. Every time I find someone, they always end up giving up, have something else to do, or just leave me waiting for them. It has been very discouraging so this time I have decided that if people want to join me cool, if not, I will not let their lack of actions kill my mood! I am very excited to meet you and join your team!

Let's get moving!!!!!

Howdy Neighbors!! Moved to Independence in August, and once we got settled in, I decided to change it up and get fitter.
Just lost my first 10 #, and I am sticking with it-- I am trying to work up to running a 5k.

Hi! I am not new to Sparkpeople, having some success with it a couple of years ago. However, through some personal issues, I gained all of the weight I lost back. I have known for a while that I needed to get back on track, but a health issue has given me that push I need to kick back into the weight loss game. I am looking forward to starting this journey again, and hopefully continuing on it for a long while!

Hey everyone... I'm new to Independence (been here a little over a year) and new to Sparkpeople... I'm really looking forward to tracking my progress, I think this will be the key to my success.

I'm thinking about signing up for a membership at the Sermon community center in Independence... It's only $15/year and they have a pretty nice weight room and cardio room. Anyone have any experience with that or suggestions?

Welcome to the team JBERNARD4,IMABIGGUY I wish you both the best of luck with your journeys here and hope to see you on the team page often. It's hard to get to know everyone on the team and one of the easiest ways for us as leaders to get to know you is for you to stop by and drop a post.

The best of luck!!

Not new to Independence or weight loss, but new to SparkPeople. Hoping to get/stay motivated to push past my current plateau and meet like-minded individuals.

Just completed another 5K Sunday, but I would like to improve my time and my waistline before the next one.

Hi everybody!

I'm new to this group, but not new to Independence. I was born and raised here, moved to Dallas and then to Oklahoma City, and came back again about 3 or 4 years ago. Good to meet everyone! emoticon

Welcome Brandy
I joined a while back. I'm hoping to see the weather cool off soon so I can get outside to walk! Been walking in the basement on a treadmill and biking on an exercise bike.
I seriously need a stick-to-it kick in the backside. (Letting too many things get in the way of 'me time').

I like your positive attitude!

Hello everyone. My name is Laura. I've lived in Independence/Kansas City area all my life. I lost about 30 pounds last year and then started to slide back into my old ways. I just found Spark this last week and so far I am loving it. I am hoping it is that little kick in the pants that I need to get going again.

Hey Danielle, I forgot to tell you that PTAmomma is also a High School friend. Stacy Spencer is a part of the group. She was working out with the aerobics group until she hurt her back. Lots of really great people on Sparks. I am so glad that you have joined the group. If you look at the boards some Fitpris has made up a 10 day challenge and it starts on the 20th and ends the 29th.

Hi, everyone! I'm Danielle, or Dani to those who know me well. I'm 40 years old (ouch!) and a high school friend of Dana! I joined the gym on June 5th and SparkPeople on June 6th, and have lost 10 pounds so far! I'm really, really excited, and feel like I have the motivation to see this through to the end this time. Woo Hoo!

Hi, my name is Rachel. I live in Independence.

I don't have kids, well not in the traditional sense. I have two cats and a boyfriend who accuses me of being a crazy cat lady. It's ok, he's my crazy cat man. In February, my doc stuck me on a mid range carb diet. D jumped on board with me. He's great support. I've lost 10 lbs and stalled, he's lost 35 and is still losing. I also work full time and am working on my master's degree full time so it keeps things hectic.

I found Spark People online today and am excited to join. I've never done something like this, and am open to any tips, ideas, help, criticism you can throw at me. I hope to lose 17 lbs. Previously I lost 80, but have gained back 30, to lose 10 again. I'd love to get back to my goal and stick there-or at least close to there. Life is to short to not be healthy enough to enjoy it!

Welcome to Independence Sparkers. We are a team that likes to get together and walk. I you watch the team message boards you will sometimes see that someone is walking during the weekend. Look under team meet and greets. We post our activities under this tab.

This is my first week on SparkPeople. I honestly found it by searching on the Internet for a weight loss tracker web site. This is so much more than I could have ever hoped for.

I am a 31-year-old working mom of a two-year-old. I lost a bunch of weight before I got married 10 years ago, and to be honest, have slipped up bad ever since then. I lost some weight before I got pregnant with my daughter and now I am trying again before we go on a trip this fall!

Another new member, joined the Kansas City group and then heard about this one. Hi everyone.

Like others have posted...I also joined originally last year but didn't do anything. Honestly the website intimidated me, so big, so many places.
But last week I decided I would go ahead and make the attempt to start working my way through the site.
So far using the trackers and recipes, now joined some teams and I'll see where it goes from there!

Hello. I joined this group a couple of weeks ago. I"m not from Indep, but I live near and I work in Indep. I find it better for motivation if I am relating to those that are closer to home. So, hey everyone and good luck in your journey.

Be the Inspiration. It'll only make you stronger.

Hi all,

I've actually been on spark for over a year, but didn't do a whole lot with it. I have lost 25lbs this year though! This is my crazy story.

I am 25 years old and I live near Blue Springs, MO. My husband was killed in Iraq a year ago Monday. I was living in NY, but when he died, I moved back to MO to live near my family. I have two children, 7 and 5. This year has been hell, but I've also had a lot of things to be thankful for. I've changed so much, and have discovered things about myself that I never knew before,some I like and some I don't. I want to lose the last bit of this weight and I figure if I survived this last year, then I can do this too. Dieting HAS to be easier than burying your husband.

Welcome Catbatty :) I too also used to strength train and am formulating a plan to re-address my fitness/weight issues. It's taken a year to get over having frozen shoulder (not fun!).
I love to bike when the trail is ridable and walk on surfaces other than cement (my knee). I'm looking forward to meeting up with team members on any walks that will be scheduled in the future. I've gained weight this year and need to get busy!

Hey gang, thanks for the welcomes! I can't seem to reply to individual messages, but will keep trying. I'm a cat lady, age 50, and love strength training and am trying to eat better and keep working out. I used to body build in my youth, and want that body back, at least the muscles... since the skin is wherever it wants to be!

Hey,
Welcome to the Independence Sparkers. If you feel like having a walking partner at some point in your journey I am sure there is somebody here that will be willing to do that. Our team walks at the park, Skates and rides bikes. Hope that you can join us on one of our meet and greet adventures.

Hello all~ I'm 37, had BPD Gastric Bypass in 2002, lost 160 lbs, now I'm ready to get the last 50 off. It felt so good getting down close to 200lbs that for the past 7 years I actually felt like I was in good shape. Now I realize that I have a little further to go in my journey. Now it's time to build back all the muscle I lost and say goodbye to the last bit of excess weight I've been carrying. I'm also looking to change careers (currently a telcom exec) and the new line of work I would like to pursue requires excellent physical shape. Joined the gym yesterday and I start my program on 9/13/09. Feel free to message me.
