Hey Siochain9509 great to have you with us, no matter how long it took! LOL
I'm in NE as well - behind Madison HS, next to the little elementary school (Gregory Heights?). I use Sacramento and Alameda for walks and runs all the time. Could we be neighbors?
As for groups... we sometimes manage to organize team walks for SparkPortland people, and we did a couple of shifts at the Oregon Food Bank in Nov. and Dec. Other than that, we don't gather but I'm sure some people would be interested if we put forth some ideas.
Hi there! I've been on Spark People for a few years, don't know why I'm just now joining the PDX team. ;-) My name is Laura and I'm located in NE Portland (Madison S. neighborhood). I'm wondering if by chance any groups meet locally? For example, support groups? Just curious. Looking forward to getting to know more local spark folks! ;-)

Hey there Raya! Welcome to SparkPeople, and the Portland team! Sorry it's been kind of quiet here lately - I'm glad to have you a part of our team. I'm also looking at letting go of 60 odd lbs this year. I'm looking at it as, there are 52 weeks in a year, if I let go of one lb a week, I'll be that much better off.
I hope you find the support and fun you need to make this effort a success. Let us know if you have any questions or if we can help in any way!
Hi, I am trying again with the weight loss deal and looking forward to having support. I have a lot of goals to reach including dropping around 60 lbs and I am hoping to make this the year I can reach my health/fitness/weight loss goals. I am looking forward to having a place for support in that and meeting people who have similar goals
