Congratulations on quitting smoking and good luck with your weight loss efforts. I am almost a neighbor of yours- I am in the Upper Bartonsville area of Rockingham. Before they messed it up by closing the bridge so you can only walk a short section, my husband and I used to drive to Springfield sometimes to walk the Toonerville Trail. Welcome to SparkPeople! I hope you like it.

Hi - My name is Tabi and I'm fairly new to SparkPeople - been here for about 1 1/2 months now. I live in Essex Town and work in Burlington for Seventh Generation. I started the VTrim program through work about 9 weeks ago, and so far have lost 23 lbs (6 were lost in the few weeks before VTrim, but were a fluke, since I wasn't doing anything specific). I'm halfway to my goal, and my new favorite past time is trying on the clothes in my closet that haven't fit for 4-5 years! Of course, if I get to my goal, the clothes from 4-5 years ago won't fit either, but then maybe I'll be back into the stuff I have leftover from pre-kids (8 1/2 years) - wouldn't that be amazing? But then I'll treat myself to a great shopping spree for all new stuff. One day at a time...

Welcome back Sandy! I'm sorry to hear about the problems you have been having with your neck. I hope it gets back to normal soon so you can get back into your gym routine. I remember you were pretty faithful about it before. I have been a bit lazy this summer. I still do pretty well with exercise on the days that I work, but tend to slack off on the weekends. I have not gained much weight back, but I haven't lost any more either. I have been fluctuating within the same five pound range for quite a while. Again, Welcome Back and I will be looking forward to your posts.

I have been a Sparks member since November 2008 but I took a break this summer from posting so thought I would reintroduce myself.
I live in New Haven which is close to Middlebury. I work with children with behavioral challenges in differernt schools in our county. I love my job.
I missed out on a lot of summer fun since I thought I had pulled a muscle but it didnt get better. I was diagnosed with 2 herniated disks in my neck. I have had lot of differnt tests and a cortizone shot in my neck and I am still not back to the old me.
But I said I would be back this fall and I am here. I have gained weight back and gotten flabby again so I need support to find ways to exercise and use good sense to cut back on food.
sorry to have gone on a tangent... you can see I need to be back! :}

We must almost be neighbors! I'm not sure I feel lucky to pay Rockingham's taxes. Ours are outrageous for the house we have, but maybe Chester is even worse. I think the value they put on our house is too high.

I see there are a couple of new southern Vermonters on here. Welcome! I live in Rockingham, but I am close to the Chester line. I have a Chester phone number and get my mail in Chester and I belong to the TOPS group in Chester. I am playing hooky tonight because we are on vacation. We are camping at Winhall Brook Campground until Sunday. We came home and got our boat and went on the CT River today and now we are headed back to the campground.

Hi everyone!

I'm new to the team, and as you can tell from my SP "handle," I'm in Burlington. I'm lovin' it for now, but I'm hoping to eventually move further out into the country. Burlington's great, but I need more trees!

I'm not too familiar with what is in the Bennington area because I am on the other side of the state. I work in Brattleboro and live near Bellows Falls. There used to be a TOPS chapter in Bennington but it disbanded due to not enough people wanting to keep it going. It is hard to have a meaningful discussion if only a couple of people show up for the meeting.

Does anyone know of any compulsive overeating related groups or the like in the Benningon area? I am not talking about overeaters annoymous........more where people come together as a group to talk about issues, discussion group/more of a free speaking atmosphere/ weight and other/support groups, that kind of thing.
