Hi Bev, I used to be 100lbs heavier and I have arthritis. At one time I could barely walk. I also had type 2 diabetes, thats' why I love Spark People!

I too am looking forward to spring weather. I had an eye appointment in Springfield this morning and was hoping to take a walk afterwards, but I decided to come home and hope it warms up a bit more and I will go for a walk this afternoon. After having my eyes dilated the sun might have bothered my anyway, although the temporary dark glasses they gave me are better than the ones they used to give and that definitely helped. If I don't get out for a walk later I will at least get on the exercise bike here at home. I did one half hour session this morning before I left.

Carollee we are the same age- although I will soon be 58! It sounds like you are more active than I am. I would probably do better if I could motivate my husband to be more active. I am more apt to go do things with someone else than I am alone, but I don't really have any friends close by that I can go with. I have a couple of friends that do a fair amount of hiking when they go geocaching, but they don't live that close to me- and one of them I would never be able to keep up with anyway. The other one I probably could keep up with- especially since she recently had a knee replacement.

Enjoy the sunshine today!

Carollee, I hope we start seeing some "nice" weather soon, so we can all get out in the fresh air. I know my dogs will be glad when they can see something other than their own yard. We usually walk on the trail in Springfield. My DH doesn't like taking the dogs out on the road.

I work downtown, so there are a couple of routes that I often take. One is to head out from our office and take Walnut Street up around to Tyler Street and then to Wantastiquet. That one is not a loop- I just walk to the end of Wantastiquet and then turn around and head back. When the sidewalks are not plowed that is where I go and it is kind of a nice walk, without a lot of traffic. The other route I take has more traffic but it is a little longer and involves more hills. I cross the street by the Municipal Center and head up past the Legion, taking Chapin Street to Oak St to High St, then out Cedat St, up Acorn lane and do the loop around the reservoir on Chestnut Hill. Sometimes I come back the same way and other times I go down Upper Forest and along Chase Street to Linden Street and back to work. If I feel real ambitious I do it in reverse so that I go up the hill on Upper Forest instead of down. There is a lot more traffic along that route, but at least there are sidewalks most of the way. The sidewalks on Cedar Street aren't plowed in the winter but traffic usually isn't too bad and I am only going a short distance on Cedar. The Retreat trails are nice in the summer but I don't do them on my lunch break because I would have to drive there and park my car and depending on how traffic is, that can kill several minutes of my break. By the time I walk to the trailhead there is not enough time to actually hike the trails.

Where do you find is the best route in Brattleboro to walk? In the summer, I'm thinking of trying to hike the Retreat trails, but I'm not sure where else would be good just to walk. I get mini-walks in parking in Harmony and walking various places downtown, but it's too crowded for a real exercise power walk.

I sure know what you mean, Bev. I let everything else come first this past year and taking care of myself kept slipping further down the 'to do' list. I am really going to concentrate on telling those extra 50+ pounds to take a hike (pun intended) this coming year.

Welcome back Tammy! I haven't been MIA but I think my effort has been MIA much of the time! I am planning to make 2014 the year I really get serious about losing the excess 60- 65 pounds I am carrying around. I'm sure I won't lose it all in 2014 but I plan to at least get a good start on it!

I'm not really new, just MIA for a long time. I'm 53 and live in Middlesex Center with my husband, 22 year old daughter (recently graduated, saving money for an apt.), Basset Hound and Maine Coon cat. I love camping and travel and do a lot of work with Girl Scouts. I work in a high school in education support.
Looking forward to making 2014 the year I regain some of my energy and stamina.

Welcome KDUNCAN34! I would think running would be a challenge in the winter when there is lots of snow and ice out there, unless you have a place where there are streets you can run on that don't get much traffic. I am not a runner and can't see myself ever becoming one, but I did used to walk a lot. I still walk, but due to some foot problems I am only able to do short walks these days. I work in Brattleboro and usually walk during my breaks, but when it is icy I don't go out because I am worried about falling. If the sidewalks aren't plowed I have a route I do that takes me on side roads where there is not a lot of traffic and I can walk on the pavement.

Hellooooo Vermonters! I live in West Pawlet, right near the NYS border; this is as far south as you can get in Rutland County. I've been on spark since 2007, took off 2011-12, came back early this year.

The teams I was on 2007-11, are pretty much gone now. I found a great little team this year, but it is now folding. Looking for a new one, I thought "are there any in VT?" and here I am! I know most people join several teams, but I can't keep up with multiples.

This team's subtitle is "we are a small team" but it says you have 17,000 members --- hmmm? Which is right? I can't deal with 17,000! I need small where I can interact with members.

I hope I've found a happy home here --

Susan

Welcome to the group Serena! I was away for a couple of days without access to a computer or I would have welcomed you sooner. I grew up (a LONG time ago) just over the hill in West Hartford. Several of my husband's relatives still live there. Most of mine still live in the Upper Valley but none in West Hartford any more. We are now living in the Bellows Falls/Chester area but we frequently go to West Hartford on weekends to visit my in-laws, except during the winter when they are in Florida.

Thank you everybody. Yes I am definitely busy! But the nice thing about being a new mommy is she LOVES to go for walks. So part of my exercise regimine (spelling?) is to start going for walks everyday - provided it's not too hot for her. I'd like to find a walking buddy in the area as well. Just makes exercise a little more motivated for me.

Welcome Chelsea! As Bescats said, you are going to be pretty busy with a new baby and school, but make sure you take time for yourself when you can. Good luck with your weight loss.

I know what you mean about the rain Liz & Bev. It seems like we either get none or to much !! Today it isn't raining yet, but is very windy. I would like some nice weather so I can take the dogs for a walk & see if my knee holds up.

Bev, I hope your hubby's surgery went well, and that he recovers quickly. emoticon

Most of my exercise is done at the gym. No walking partners around me either, and I have a hard time getting DH to go around here because he doesn't like walking on Route 5.
We go to Springfield on the trail, and walk the dogs, but haven't done it much lately.

Praying for sun too !!!

I WISH I was retired, but unfortunately I have a few more years to work. I am actually off today because my husband is having outpatient surgery on his foot. He will be out of work for up to 6 weeks (we are hoping more like 3 or 4 so he doesn't use up all of his sick time) but I am only taking one day off. He should be able to get around enough to take care of himself during the day, but not enough to work. I may have to take a couple of half days off when he goes back for his first couple of checkups unless they say he is okay to drive. It is his left foot so he'll be able to drive quicker than if it was the right foot.

Pray for some sun!

I'm retired also and I love it. Too bad you aren't closer...we could get together to walk. I wonder if there are any other people around Wardsboro .

Have you had the same amount of rain as us? Our rivers are raging ...enough.

Have a nice day!
Liz

I'm really sick of the rain. I can't get all my perennial gardens weeded ...much too wet. I have to head to Keene today...hope you have a great day and stay dry.

Welcome Liz from West Wardsboro! Are you as sick of all this rain as I am? I hope it doesn't cause any problems in your area to places left vulnerable by the damage from Irene.

Hi,
I'm from West Wardsboro, VT....not far from Mt Snow. Nice to see there are other Vermonters
here. I'm desperately trying to lose about 30 lbs but it's not easy as everyone here knows. I do have to stay on it and get it off...not to be slim but to be healthy. My clothes would be happier too.

I really never post on boards but figured this might help.
Liz

Welcome to SparkPeople Chelsea! Even 10 minutes a couple of times a day adds up if you do it regularly. Good luck!

Welcome to the team, Chelsea. emoticon

It is difficult to stick to exercise routines when you are chasing little ones. Do the best you can, like taking a little time when they nap, or even have them do little exercises with you for some fun and games. Remember, even baby steps lead to big results. Good luck.

Hi! Have been a member for a short while but haven't seemed to get the motivation to stick with it. I'm in West Hartford, VT and keep a pretty busy schedule with two little ones! Hope to stay with my goals this time around! Would love to find a walking/fitness buddy!

Hi Everyone!!

I just joined spark and can't wait for my journey. I live in Fairfax, VT! I am 29 years old and a mother of two girls. I work full time as well, so trying to keep on the path has been a little difficult for me. Anyone is welcome to add me, and I hope to help along the way!!

Thanks so much
Michelle

Welcome to our newest team members! ANNKSAW, I live further south in the Bellows Falls/Chester area now, but I grew up (a LONG time ago) in the town of Hartford- West Hartford to be exact. Most of my family is still in the Upper Valley and some of them, as well as some of my in-laws still live in the town of Hartford, so I am up that way sometimes on the weekends.

Johnson VT, any one else close to the area?? I just moved here a month ago. I would love an exercise buddy. I am tired of being fat. I'm a sugar addict. Yet I was just checked and my blood sugar levels are all great, so I want to keep them that way. I start my year long Journey of losing 100 lbs

Hi! I'm from White River Junction (ie the junc).
I'm getting married in three short months so I am doing the quintessential lose-weight-before-the-wedding thing. I also feel READY to take control of my life and my health, so here I am.
