Howdy!

I'm a returning Sparker, after about 2 years, "off the wagon." My husband and I took a vacation in Orlando two weeks ago, and my joints were hurting worse than my feet. That's when I realized that I need to get in shape. We have a recently vacated nest, and we're enjoying our re-discovered liberty by going out and doing things, and our poor physical condition is really holding us back.

I live in Grimes county, but I work in College Station. The day we got back from Florida, my husband and I both joined a gym and got personal trainers. Yesterday was my first actual workout with my trainer and I'm sore, but already feeling better (maybe it's all in my head, but it's gotta start somewhere - why not in my head?).

I look forward to getting to know all of y'all!

Howdy Everyone! I'm new to SP since Jan.31 and just found this team. I've lived here for almost 6 years. At 52, I'm on a journey to fitness once again. It feels great to get out there and run! I like to mix it up so I do boot camp, walking, a little running, step aerobics...

Fitness requires perspiration. John Bingham

We can do more than we think we can because we have a God who is bigger than we think He is.

Hi! I'm Jamie and I live in Bryan. I joined Spark about 6 months ago, but I just learned how to really use the site. I'm really learning how many calories I'm eating everyday, and it's just an eye opener!!

I hope everyone is doing well!!

Hi, Welcome. I am Pat from College Station. My best tip, I guess, is to make sure you log allyour food every day. And remember just staying within calorie guidelines is not enough. Make sure you are getting those fruits and veggies and WATER.

I also belong to TOPS. We meet in Bryan on Tuesdays at St Joe's annex. We often use some of the Spark Articles and Quizzes at our meetings. It also givs accountability when you have to come in and get weighed every week.

Grammy Pat
So what are you waiting for?
What do you have to lose. Your insecurities they try to alter you.
But you know you're made for more- so don't be afraid to move.
Your faith is all it takes and you can walk on the water to.

Howdy! I just found this group and excited to see all the folks from around the Brazos Valley. I live in College Station and work at A&M. I have two kids, 11 and 8. I have been actively using SP since July 2008 and making good progress. I love Nicole's workout videos and the New YOU Bootcamp. Did anyone else give it a try?

Howdy - I just found the BV team and decided to join. I am still kinda new to SP - just joined at the end of March. I turned 40 this year and decided this was my year for change. I have spent the last decade taking care of my four kids and the big kid I am married to. I need to start taking care of myself...so here I am. It seems my pattern is that I do pretty good during the week, but then on the weekend...I don't make such great choices and I don't exercise either, so I gain on the weekend and lose during the week.

It's at (csbryfreecycle at yahoogroups), and still going strong!

The former owners quit, at least, 2 of 3 did (I'm the 3rd) and someone else started this one up. There are about 6 - 10 messages a day. I have enjoyed being part of Freecycle and hope to continue.

My name is Becky and I live in College Station. I have a 5 year old daughter and work as an accountant. I usually do okay on diets and then lose motivation and quit and gain it all back. Very frustrating. Hopefully this will be a good way to keep motivated.

Hi!

I'm in College Station, also, a SAHM of five ages 5 to 21, homeschooling the three younger ones. I just joined a coupole of weeks ago, but began looking at the site today finally :-) I tend not to do things out much, but I do sometimes. With Lent starting today, I have more incentive to get busy and get smaller!

Hi Lindsey and welcome.

This team is pretty small. I'd love to get some more members and do some activities. I've been really slacking lately. I'm just going to wait until after the holidays before I get back into everything...and then it's back to business!!!

Thought I'd introduce myself here..

Doesn't seem to be much action on this team just yet.. few members I suppose. Well, anyway, I just started this SparkPeople site a few days ago and am getting into the habit of tracking my foods. It's been a good experience so far - enlightening to say the least.

I'm in vet school at A&M, so that means I sit on my butt studying a lot. I want to get more active and feel the energy that everyone tells me is out there for the taking with exercise.

So, Howdy! Message me if ya'll think of anything fun to do with the group!

Lindsey

We will just continue on until someone else joins. I may have time to search for others today and invite them. I'll try.
In the meantime I lost another lb this week. That makes me an official 20 and meets my first medium range goal. WOO HOO!
