Hi Bettie,

I am familiar with the DeKalb area. I used to live in Marengo, IL and still have family out there. At one time I actually thought about going to Northern but ended going a different journey in life. It's great to meet you.

Take care,
Emma

BMCOLLEY, you don't know me. In actuality, you're a blessing in disguise. I have a client who's looking for a new location for her asian food restaurant (chinese food). She's looking right in your area and perhaps you can help me help her get what she's looking for. Don't ever think you're too far out. I've been out there before. Love it. Talk about country living. :)

I am in DeKalb County, DeKalb, IL. This is the town of the Northern Illinois University. It does not sound as if we are that close. I even consider it a trek to go to Chicago. I see, however, that there is someone else in your area. Good luck with your partnership.

I'm not too far from you my dear. I'm in McHenry County which is close to the Wisconsin border.

Hi Emma. Just knowing what you should be doing for yourself is a great first start. Where are you from in Illinois.

My name is Emma and I moved back to IL in October of last year. I started being part of the spark community last year but a lot of life changing and stressful events occurred and well derailed my commitment to myself. I am 33 years old and 210 lbs. My goal is to lose 95 lbs. My ultimate goal weight is 115.

A little bit about myself. I am currently a graduate student and I commute into the city quite often during the week. I have about an hour and 1/2 commute one way on the train. I use to be a professional ice skating coach in Houston, TX. I loved my job and I miss it a lot. I am active in our church and I sing in the choir. Things that I love to do. I love to travel, read books, dance, and knit. I am currently learning how to crochet. I think I am progressing at a study and good pace with that.

I will talk more later.
Emma
