I'm new here too. I tried to join the SP Portland and got very confused. It was as if I was starting SP all over. So now I have two accounts. How do I find events other than a facebook page? emoticon HELP!

Hi everyone,

I realized when I came back to SP last month I didn't check in with all of the teams I had joined. So here I am. Hope everyone is having a fantastic St. Paddy's day. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have been on SP since 2011 off and on. This time I'm working really hard to stick to "On". I am finding that getting active on the site helps drive my commitment away from it. I have taken on a few different team challenges and even taken on leadership of the Portland Trail Blazer team.

Wishing everyone the very best luck along your journey.

Hello, I am new to the team. I live in Tualatin and am really sore from working out again! It's been awhile. I work out of my home and sit at a desk all day so a very sedentary lifestyle. I look forward to meeting other people in my area.

Hi Everyone,
I didn't realize there was a Portland group until recently. It would be really nice to find some workout buddies for some extra moral support and motivation. I am very socially motivated. I lost 20+ lbs last year but stopped watching what I was doing and hurt my back so I gained it all back plus some. This year I WILL lose weight and keep it off. emoticon

Hello! So... I am coming back to Spark People after about 3 years, and this time i am not doing this so I can just lose weight, or to fit in a dress.... This time I'm doing this for me. So I can live a healthier lifestyle, and if i make my weight goal, and keep my fats and carbs in check, and continue to be active, then I am confident that I can have the kind of healthy lifestyle i envision for myself. :)
My name is Nikki, and I'm from Tigard Or.

For me - I have a Fitbit that counts every step and my total mileage traveled in a day. I don't log that; instead I'm logging only intentional fitness - going for a walk after work, going for a run or bike ride, etc.

It's TOTALLY up to you what you want to log. If you track your steps and mileage that way, by all means put it up! There's no right or wrong, really - it's just to help inspire us to move more!

I hope that helps. If not, keep asking questions!

Hi - I'm 45 and looking to rediscover the joy of exercise! I have about 90-110 lbs to lose and am looking to do it in a way that is sustainable over time ... part of why i gained so much was pushing myself so hard i just came to dread exercise. Ive also become a fan of the ohilosophy in geneen roth's 'women, food and god' books and am combining a more mindful (and less judgmental) approach to nutrition with a relatively gentle walking program designed to build my energy back up so I can enjoy exercise again. I'd love a walking partner for weekdays if anyone wants to join - or just words of encouragement as I look to take control of my health again!

Hi,

I just moved to Portland a new months ago. I origionally lost around 70lbs on my own but I've recently gained about 15-20lbs back. I would like to start off this new chapter in my life by adopting a healthier lifestyle and working off those 15lbs.

I would love to have a buddy to workout with (24 hour fitness in the Pearl) or to talk to about weight loss and weight gain. I live in the NE but I get around the city pretty easily!

Hello everyone! My name is Kathie and I have been with SparkPeople for a couple of months now. After being in denial for over a decade about my gradual weight gain, I had to face reality one day in a collage. Shortly after that I went from thinking I should do something about my weight to deciding to do something about it. I began paying attention to portions and how many calories were in things. I have stayed consistent with several small changes to my habits and have lost 14 lbs of my 40 lb goal. emoticon I am looking forward to staying on track with my new eating habits and adding new exercise habits too. That's next!

Right now I live in Canby, but spend a lot of time in "the big city". I've been Sparking for a couple of years and I'm looking for a boost to get to my goals... I'm *this* close!! I golf, throw in Highland Games, weight train and LOVE Zumba!!

I also enjoy candle light dinners and walks on the beach... emoticon

Spark on!

I moved back to Portland last December after being away for —gulp—a decade. I graduated from Lincoln High School in 2002 and didn't realize that college and grad school and other adventures would take me away for a whole ten years. While living in Boston a few years ago, I miraculously found the inner runner in me and over the course of a summer I got into the best shape of my life (albeit I was 170 pounds, still overweight—I felt strong and fantastic) and exercised religiously.

Over the past year, to my dismay, I managed to gain almost 50 pounds—no trifling sum! I struggle with depression, emotional eating, PCOS, and have been through a lot of changes and upheavals, and I think the weight gain reflects an overall loss of control, focus, and faith. I have degrees from top colleges and was always the child my family predicted would be a doctor, but here I have been unemployed for the past year, and I have felt the stigma of failure and weight of pressure, and it has done a number on my confidence and my body.

I am here to get myself back on the golden track, find my clarity, and hopefully some local friends to share in the journey. Hello!

Hi glad to have you.
Add veggies reduce cholesterol, add fruit, whole grains,etc.
I am trying to be healthier, too much family history in trying too hard to lose weight,

Grand mother was in tops and diet pills uppers and downers and surprise a heart attack.

Her sister (My great aunt ) was in the hospital having part of her intestine removed so she could not absorb as much, when she caught phnoma and died. She had gained with diet meals planed and delivered for her.

Hellllllllllo SparkPortland.

I'm Shay, new to both this group and this site! I have NO idea what I'm doing here or how to work anything on this site, but I will say, I'm super excited to be here and am so glad I found this group! :)

Can't wait to meet some cool new people while on my journey to a happy, healthy and fit life.

Hi everyone. I don't think I've actually introduced myself here before. I've been a member of Sparkpeople since 2007 but only used the site a little bit back then. I've been back for about a month and have lost 8 pounds so far. This time I'm determined to reach my goal!

I live in the Happy Valley area of Portland by the way. emoticon

Hi there... recently moved to Portland (Rockwood/Gresham area) after having lived in Vancouver for nearly 10 years. My fave thing about this area is the walking/biking paths. I can do a 24 mile loop and most of is on the paths/ trails... very nice.

Aloha everyone! I was born and raised here in the Rose City and love it! Keep Portland Weird! .....and yes, I totally get Portlandia!.... I've spent time bumming a bit around the globe and have returned for a decent job. I've decided to rejoin SP and am currently maintaining a healthy weight but would love to be more active. I love the outdoors and would welcome walking, hiking, cycling partners. Thus far, I'm not getting back into running just yet (I used to run the Portland Marathons) I've considered joining a local hiking meetup group, just to get out there and do some outdoor activity. I live in NE. I like going to Last Thursdays on Alberta, summer concerts in the parks, roam NW 23rd, cruise the esplanade downtown, and, of course, Springwater trail. I'd really like to hike the local parks and arboretiums...but need buddies.

We'll be best friends until we're old and senile, then we'll be NEW freinds!

I can't believe it. I am eating Dannon oikos fruit on the bottom (blueberry) yogurt and it's good!
This is a real breakthrough for me. Thanks so much. This is so easy and just what I needed. emoticon

Hiya Elag193 emoticon to the team, and back to SparkPeople!

I was like you for a long time - I did not like the taste of yogurt, and greek yogurt was even worse! Now though, I love it. I've found that Chobani greek yogurt, with fruit on the bottom, really mixes up nicely and tastes good to me. If you're not ready for greek yogurt, you could always try Dannon Light and Fit yogurts, they're pretty good as well.

Keep an eye out for upcoming SparkPortland team walks. We'd love to have you with us.

Hi everyone,
I sure am glad to be here. I've been an ON and OFF member for a while and today I am ON and serious. I'm working around age and arthritis situations but will not let them limit my progress.
So today I put in my measurements, weight and this introduction.
I want to eat more nutritiously and wish I liked yogurt because it seems so easy.
Anyone have yogurt brand that isn't so "tangy" that I should try?
I'm in Gresham.
Currently walk the dog most mornings but need to extend the time to be more effective. emoticon

Thanks for the welcome!
I love the neighborhood and walk up the hill to Sacramento street often.

I will check out the map to the park and hope to meet you there.

Thanks again,
The weekend is supposed to cool off!

Hi Ann emoticon welcome to Portland, and the team here! We're glad to have you with us.
I'm not far from Rose City Golf Course myself. My husband and I walk along Sacramento (the street up above on the ridge) quite often, and around the golf course as well. I'm hoping to plan a group walk next month up at Glendoveer Golf Course on Glisan and 148th. This month we're heading up into Forest Park for a mile or so, starting out at Lower Macleay Park and we'd love to have you join us!

Hello Everyone,

I joined SP four years ago and the time has gone so fast. It's a great place for support and I love it here.
The past two years have been rough. I moved from my homestate of Michigan to Florida to Pennsylvania and now to Oregon!

I'm working and getting settled. I hope to make some good friends and enjoy all the beauty of the Northwest.

I love to walk, I live next Rose City Golf Course,
Thanks for reading,
Ann

Hi everyone. My name is Kesha. I've lived in SE Portland for 12 years.I was a member of SP a few years ago but lacked the motivation to really change and make a difference in my life. I'm back now because I have recently had some changes happen and now I am more than ready for some big changes and to do things to treat myself right.

I hope everyone is having a wonderful and healthy day!

What's up Portland! My name is Brian Garman. My wife joined this site a while back and thinks it's awesome! I was on Weight Watchers online for a while and it helped a lot! So now that the economy in Portland (and across the nation) has gone to crap, I need to budget a bit tighter! So being that Spark People is a free service, I thought what the heck! Right?

Anyway, I am a Type 2 Diabetic and currently in the hospital with my 15th episode of Pancreatitis in the past 3 years! So to say the least, I may need some support getting everything under control! Sooooo! Just thought I would introduce myself and say hay~!

Hey everyone, My husband and I are moving to Portland this summer...well...he is moving up in a few weeks, my daughter and I are stuck down here in Southern Oregon until she is out of school and we have the money to move....so anyway, I thought I'd get to know some fellow sparkers up North....I have made several friends on here...one moved from Texas to Oregon and is now in Wilsonville!! We are looking to move to Troutdale as that is where my husband has found a job...

I'm 28 my husband is 40 and my daughter is 8.....I lost 50 pounds over a year ago....gained back 20 and now trying to lose those 20 and 10 more....also have high cholesterol and have started the Paleo Diet....sorta....heh....we are trying really hard to stick to it...my husband has lost 20 pounds just changing his food....me....well...I am dropping slowly....very slowly...but I am sticking to it....doing my workouts and training for a 5K....

Anyway....we are looking forward to living up there....but I am sad to say good bye to the friends I have made down here....so it is a bitter sweet....Hoping Portland has a lot of new opportunities to make friends! :)

Keep Sparking! emoticon

When the pain of remaining the same is greater than the pain of change, then you will change!
