Friendship and Fitness With Cindy - on Facebook. She is doing informal meetups on Sunday at 9:15 am at the Iroquois ampitheater. Stretches, lunges, etc. Maybe a couple of us can walk afterward and/or set other times to meet and such. I like to hike, but have a hard time finding one or 2 people that go at about the same pace.

The difference between triumph and try is a little "umph"

Hey Y'all!
I just rejoined SparkPeople today. I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. We just moved to Louisville in the past 2 months. My husband works at RMR on Industry Rd. I am currently a patient at Portland FHC. I just found out about programs at FHC that I plan on joining but I am stuck with the TARC service to get back and forth as I don't drive. Right now I am hoping to find a common-ground friend to have as an exercise buddy and maybe be able to help me get back and forth to the food pantries. Especially the Friday morning one on Bicknell with the produce. Because it is so late,I won't be officially starting my program until tomorrow. Please hit me up here or on FB if anyone can help or wants to be a buddy. I live on Tennessee Ave off of 7th Street.

Hi my full name is Danielle, and I will be 37 in July. I just moved to Louisville in January. I am now getting a divorce and with the love of my life from way back in High School. We never in our wildest dreams thought we would get a second chance. He supports me in every way! We go to the gym together, and walk the park together on days that are really nice. He also cares about eating better like I do. I am preparing to participate in The Glo Run next year since I just found out about it. This years is only a month away so that does not leave us time to get the money together. My boyfriend is willing to do it with me so we have to have enough money for both of us. It looks like so much fun. I love walking and the treadmill. Lack of stamina has been my enemy in the past. I just quit smoking when I moved here, so that should help a lot.

Hey!! My name is Amy and I am new to SparkPeople and am trying to figure this whole thing out! lol
I recently transplanted to Southwest Louisville almost two years ago, I haven't been out to make any new friends, just to go to work, and with dealing with the stress of the death of my in laws, family issues, etc, I have turned to food and have gained over 60 lbs in two years.
It is time to get moving and lose this monster on my back!

Hi! I'm Laura! I'm new to Sparkpeople but not new to weight loss. One more try! I decided to get a jump-start on the new year and get busy BEFORE the holidays. Not sure if this is smart or not. Ha!

Hello everyone! My name is Christine. I am 35 years old and a stay-at-home mom to 2 boys (4 and 2 years old). I recently just signed up at Sparkpeople to keep track of my exercise. I started the WalKing Program by Leslie Sansone about 5 weeks ago. Prior to that, I do not exercise at all. [I thought running and keeping up with my toddlers was exercise!] But since my annual check in August, I had really high blood pressure, really high cholesterol levels and a fatty liver. I resolved to start a fitness program and am very lucky to find the Walking by Leslie Sansone a very easy and enriching exercise.

I started with 2 miles a day and progress every week. I am now doing a 5- or 6-mile walk in a day and have never missed a day. I feel so great and I am hoping that my cholesterol levels will go down in 3 months (also with diet, but... not so much!) but my blood pressure so far has been in the best it has ever been!

Hello everyone,

I am not new to Spark, but new to the team. I was away from the Kentuckiana Area for a couple years and have been back for just over a year. With a job change happening on my birthday this month, I am trying to get back into the healthy habits again. I need to eventually lose about 80 pounds, but I plan on doing this slowly.

I have a membership at a gym here and plan on using that to help me get back in shape. After knee surgery I am still recovering. It will be 3 months Monday, and I still experience tenderness and swelling, but I am taking things much slower again and hopefully will be able to get back to normal activity here in a few months!

Change is inevitable, Progress is Optional

Samantha...you can do it. You know you can because you have already done it before. It will take time and it will take work, but you CAN do it!

Be as active as you can be, even if it is only walking. Drink a lot of water. Sleep as regularly as you can. Eat small amounts through the day. I try for 5 to 6 times a day and that will keep your metabolism going.

Stay with Spark! You have help and support here!

Hey Samantha. You can do it. Just take one step at a time. Drink more water. I drink 4 - 20 oz bottles a day. (that equals the 8-10 oz glasses suggested) I drink one before breakfast, 1 b4 lunch, 1 b4 dinner & 1 with a snack. This water before meals I think helps me feel fuller and the food seems to taste better like maybe you are flushing out your taste buds and I am getting my water in at the same time. Get in some walking time, make it fun, take a friend & go to the park (or to the mall) just keep in mind you want to get some walking in. And, journal both food & exercize.

You can do it. It sounds like a lot. But once you get in a routine, it becomes easier.

Also, by the way, I have lost 65. I didn't get on the spark bandwagon until after I had lost some.

Donna

Hang in there! I have lost 50 since September, but I am still a good 30 pounds away from where I was before that. I had lost 55 before, but gained 80 back so there is hope!! One day at a time...

I need a lot of help and encouragement! I lost 35 pounds last year then regained 50! I am hoping to start over but I feel so discouraged! I am starting small. walking a little and eating a salad a day and attempting to get two glasses of water in, but I know I will not reach my goals doing these things alone

Hi All

I introduced myself a while back as DJMusicboxx. I didn't realize I had two accounts going at the same time. Boy was that confusing till I got help figuring out what was wrong.

Anyway, my name is Donna. I live in Southern Indiana. I lost 65 lbs. 25 of which was about 10 years ago and kept it off. The other 40 was in the past 1 1/2 yrs.

I am using the Diet Tracker here on Spark People. I started seriously in Spark People in Jan. 2013. And, I am trying out the Rookie 5k 8-week plan. I like to hike and bicycle.

Hi! A New Albanian here, working on becoming the healthiest, happiest me I can be. I have had more than a few false starts under my belt over the years, but every time I get a little bit better at it.

The quote that has recently become my mantra is: If you're tired of starting over, then stop giving up!
And of course that quote came from sparkpeople :)
It really gets to the heart of my struggles.

I'm surprised it took me so long to join a group for Louisvillians. I think it will help me to have a group of local sparkers to talk to and possibly meet up with for events.

Hi, my name is Karen, I live in Louisiville with my husband and two teenage daughters. I have somehow found the motivation and determination to change my life and become healthier. My ultimate goal is to become a runner (always wanted to run, but never could because I have always been too overweight). I have a long way to go, but I'm ready to get going. I look forward to chatting with some of my fellow Louisvillians.

Karen

I havent been on in a while (busy mom, and no time to turn around twice, let alone sit down), so I thought I would come and say hello to my fellow Louisvillians. I am still on my journey, I have lost about 15 lbs in the past 2 months, and I have lost 12 inches from various places on my body. (thanks to the routine that my trainer has me on). I just want everyone to keep up the good work, we are all making Louisville look good and healthy!!!! emoticon

Hi my name is Donna. I live near Louisville. I have lived in this area all my life. I like to hike and bicycle. I go to the gym at least once a week. I try for three times but since weather is nicer, I like to do outdoor activities instead.

Before I came to Spark People, I was already on my weight loss journey. I have lost a total of 61.5 lbs. I have 13.5 more to loose to make it to my next big goal. My Doc would be happy if I lost a total of 100 lbs. But, we will see.

My weight loss seems small compared to other posts I have read on here. But, it is and always will be a challenge whether we have 300 lbs to loose or 25 lbs to loose.

I would like to encourage everybody JOURNAL & EXERCISE !!!!!!!

Donna

Hello! My name is Sara and I'm relocating to New Albany, IN in late June for a new job. I am from (born & raised) a suburb of Milwaukee, WI. As long as I can remember, my weight has gone up & down like a yoyo. During my college years, I battled eating disorders. Now that chapter is over and my weight has shot up.

Nutrition - still trying to work on this...

Fitness - very involved in Zumba up in Wisconsin. I would love to get some info on Zumba in the "Kentuckiana" area. A work out buddy wouldn't be bad either. :)

Sweat like a pig, look like a fox!

Hi my name is lisa and I was born and raised in Louisville. I have always been overweight. I come from a family of diabetics including myself. Last year my sugar shot out of control and the drs have put me on insulin. This has been a huge wake up call to me. Last year I joined a gym, but I was very casual about going.

This week starts my second week of my new life. I have made it to the gym 3 days a week and work out 2 - 2.5 hours each time!! Mondays are always the hardest days to make myself go, but now I KNOW I can do it!

Just signed up! (Literally)

Sept 1, 2012 diagnosed Type 1 diabetes. My Dr. wanted to get aggressive with diet before the next A1C Jan 17th - Wanted me to lose 15lbs per month before he will decide if he will prescribe oral meds...I suspect he will. I have not lost any weight and continue to cheat with foods, I am not disciplined with healthy habits and have become quite lazy. Part of that is from being depressed and not moving!!! I know what I need to do but cannot seem to get started and STAY with a program...This is the first time I am signing into a program like this. I read some of the messages and know every one of you made this first step too...some are farther along, some have recently signed up and still learning, yet we all face different levels of roadblock issues in reaching/maintaining our goals.
After once again seeing pictures taken of me at Christmas and just cringing when I saw them (I had the same reaction last year...I didn't just gain 95lbs in a year) I know I have got to be personally accountable for changes, but I also realize I am the type of person that needs daily motivational and some times a kick in the pants critique. Is there events here in Louisville where people can get together and meet, share, laugh, cry and move forward together? It would be wonderful to get together every once in awhile!!! :)))
I want to be healthy and energetic again, I want to play with my 15 mos old grandson with out feeling drained, i want to enjoy the summertime in shorts and sleeveless shirts with out being looked at negatively. I want to sit down and cross my legs again, I want to sit on a couch and not pile pillows around me thinking it is hiding my body...

Hi everyone, My name is Sandy, I am 53 years old. I have had a pretty rough year and looking forward to 2013. My Dad passed away on January 29, 2012, I had neck surgery September 10 and was off for six weeks, came back to work for 8 days, missed a step and fractured my ankle, was off 4 more weeks. The high point of my year besides having a wonderful husband, beautiful daughter and mother, was the fact that I graduated on Dec 13, 2012 with a Master of Art in Higher Education Administration. I work at UofL and earned my bachelor's in 2009, after my daughter graduated in 2010 from UofL, I decided to go ahead and get my master's. I began Jan 2011 and graduated Dec 2012, all online, it was the one thing that kept me going this year through everything.

I have been with SparkPeople in the past and it has helped. I gained about 20 pounds this year and I am looking for ward to taking those pounds off the coming year. Here is to a wonderful and prosperous 2013. Sandy

Hey everyone! My name is Kellye, I'm 27 and live in Charlestown, IN. I've been on Sparkpeople for a few months now, but I'm just now really getting back in to it. So far I've lost about 35 pounds and have around 165 more to lose. I go to Planet Fitness in Clarksville (trying to go 4 times a week) and work out at home (wii, xbox, walking around Charlestown, workout videos, etc.). I'd love to find others who would want to work out with me or share some motivation :)

I would like to re-introduce myself to the team. My name is Nicki and I live in the East end near Blankenbaker Prkwy. I'm 33 years old and I'm so over being so unhealthy. I joined SparkPeople in April and really blazed a trail of weightloss and energy, but about the beginning of Summer life got the better of me and things have screeched to a complete stop. I can't seem to find my motivation again, but that hasn't stopped me from trying to. I'm a fighter to be sure. I would love to meet someone in the area who is serious about getting fit and living healthy. Someone willing to help keep me accountable and letting me help them do the same. Positive encouragement always makes things easier. I hope to get to know you all better!

Hi there, I'm 39 yr old female Louisville resident. I am married and my husband is also trying to lose weight but he's not on here very much. I'm battling Graves' disease and my thyroid has trucked on a bunch of weight that I have had a hard time getting rid of the last ten years.

Just started trying to get in better shape beginning of summer. Since I've stuck with it for over two months, decided to get on Sparkpeople to help keep myself on track. I'm doing the South Beach diet based on my doctor's advice and a lot of low impact aerobics and walking. I live near Churchill Downs area, and would love to find a walking partner if possible, either Iroquois park when weather permits or going to one of the malls when weather is not so good.

Hi everyone! My name is Samantha. I live near Churchill Downs. I have a long way to go until I reach my goal weight (130 lbs) but, I'm working with small goals so I will feel a sense of achievement. I love meeting new people and working out with others is fun, so feel free to message me if you need someone to work out with.

My name is Diane and I live in Charlestown, IN. I would love to find someone to work out with, and help each other along the way. I have lost 85 lbs already but have another 75-80 to go. I belong to Anytime fitness but have not been able to work out since I had a hip replacement in June. Needless to say my weight loss has been nil since then. I was going to water aerobics at the local school, but they eliminated all adult ed classes and I do not have access to a deep enough pool to work out. I am 54 years young, my daughter and her 4 kids all live with me so my stress levels are thru the roof!! Looking forward to getting to know you all!

My name is Courtney and I have lived in Louisville most of my life. I have been back down here for almost 2 years and made the decision to lose weight. At my heaviest I was over 280. I got down to 240 a few months ago but I'm restarting at 256. Going back is not an option, plus I gave away all my bigger clothes :P. I live in St. Matthews area but I spend alot of time in Hillview as well and would love to find a work out buddy to walk with and keep motivated. I look forward to being active in here and out!!

I am not new to Spark but I am new to Louisville Losers. I live in Jeffersonville but I do work in Louisville. I got back into Spark on May 5th and haven't looked back!

I still have a long ways to go but the first 2 months have been great and I am feeling good about my progress. Looking forward to the day I hit some of my goals, it's one thing that keeps me on track.

Lost 33.9 lbs. the first 6 weeks by just using Spark to eat right. Now, I am on day 13 of the Insanity workout program. It's been difficult trying to work with the soreness but that is gone and it is full steam ahead!

Looking forward to meeting some people on Spark & Louisville Losers and hearing their goals and reading their stories

Hello everyone! My name is Jennifer and I have been in Louisville for a little over a year now!

I am currently 289pounds and my goal is to be 145 pounds by swimsuit season next year...I HAVE to keep up with my weight loss because I just bought a really cute swimsuit to wear next year and it can't be returned! YIKES!!!

I have been married for 2.5 years now to my wonderful husband and best friend. I have a welsh corgi named Apollo and two cats, Lilly and Sophie. I love being outside and I really do love working out (even though getting to the gym is torture!)

I love forward to meeting everyone! I need a lot of spark buddies!! I definitely need the motivation from it!!!

God Bless,
Jennifer Rose

HI, I actually live in Ohio but I visit Louisville on regularly. I was there last week and will be back in 2 weeks. I was so impressed to see so many people out walking and riding bikes. I went to the Southside YMCA (love them there) and we walked on some trails by the Zoo. What are some healthy restaurants that you would recommend? We ate one meal at Tumbleweed on the river, Rocky's in Jeffersonville, and Buckheads Mountain Grille. Of course I ate some ice cream at the Grandma's ice cream and pie. What trails do you recommend and restaurants?

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I can not change the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

Hello... I am Terrie and I am a lurker... I do read alot and love SP! I don't even know where to begin with weight loss... I have been focusing on eating more whole grains, organic, and vegetables... I struggle to do alot these days because of some (mental and physical) health conditions and my current work schedule. Could I use some support? Absolutley! Mostly, I think, I need to believe in myself... easier said than done.

Hello Louisville!

I am a 54 year old man wanting to lose all those pounds that have found their way to my belly since I was younger. My goal is 24 pounds by September 1st. Right now I have lost 13 pounds but have seemed to hit a wall. I would really like to lose 40 pounds by the end of the year.

Good luck to all!

The fight for air walk is in june and we gather supportors to donate money based on how many miles we walk! you can choose to walk 1 or 3 mile courses! if you get 100 in pledges you get a shirt. raise more and get more prizes! I hope to hear more details on it tomorrow! I will post them as soon as I get all the details! but it shouldnt cost anything to walk just getting sponsors if you want to raise money for lung cancer research and developing ways to keep our air clean! :)

Hello everyone! My name is Nicki and I am 32 years old. I moved to Louisville 9 months ago from South Central Indiana (Seymour area). I have been overweight most of my life. I lost 80 pounds 5 years ago but have since gained it all back plus some. I have gained many things in my life over the past couple years such as a wonderful boyfriend and a job I love; however I have not been able to find or regain my motivation. I'm hoping to meet more people in the area, make friends, and find some encouragement. I have a membership to Anytime Fitness, I have gym access at my job, at my apartment complex and I have an elliptical trainer in my bedroom, and yet I'm still having a hard time making myself get started. Any help will be appreciated and I'm willing to offer the same in return. emoticon

Hey Ya'll
My name is Sara. I am new to louisville area. My husband, son and I just moved here a couple months ago for my husbands promotion. I am a mother to a beautiful 3 year old who keeps me active. However i have trouble with motivation, i have been trying to stay motivated but it seems like everytime i get in the groove of working out something happens like this move. So now I am back I work out at the LAC on westport road which is a great gym. I have been trying to get my husband to join me and although he has the membership he also lacks motivation and does not usually like to join me at the gym so it gets a bit lonely when you dont have someone pushing you all the time. Anyways for now I am a stay at home mom until i find a new job and am just looking to make some friends get some motivation.

Just saying hello, have lived in Louisville since 1997 and am looking for better life choices. I am 53 years old and have been married for 26 years. I enjoy time away from work, teaching sunday school, crafts, being a couch potato, and reading. I ran into the Sparks website by accident but it looks like it might provide some motivation.

Hello everyone. My name is Corey and I am 25 years old. I have lived in Louisville for just over two years (originally from Michigan) and will be leaving in the summer of 2013. I am stationed here with the U.S. Coast Guard. The CG has some pretty strict weight standards and I have a hard time meeting them. I end up stressing and going on a starvation/speed diet to lose the lbs and water weight just so I can weigh in. I am sick of doing this, and I am so tired of having low self esteem and so this is my 'do something about it' moment. I am glad to join you all on this journey together!

Yesterday you said tomorrow.

I had done well on spark people a few years ago, and am just now getting started again. Moving around (geographically) threw me off my game, so to speak. New to the Louisville area, I'm hoping to find some health/fitness buddies here and get back in the groove. If anyone is interested in meeting up to take walks, or other types of activities, please send me an email. Best of luck to all!

Oh my gosh!!! I am in Moab, Utah. I was raised in Louisville. I have not been there since 1983. Just to see the places mentioned like Bardstown and Okalona, where I lived, is bringing back a flood of memories. Some of which are good, but there are bad memories as well. I have to careful not to re-traumatize myself. I can't get back there for another couple of years,so I thought I would virtually walk there. Got to start somewhere. I have been walking with the Leslie Sansone tapes, up to 4 miles a day. Started September 13, 2011. Still with it and it's working. I thought it time to really get with creating a healthy lifestyle for life so my doctor recommended Sparkpeople. Just joined Sparkpeople today. emoticon

Hello all,

My name is Brandi, I am a 31 yr old mother of 2 very active boys yet I cant keep up. My goal is 70 lbs off of my body so I can be healthier. I want to live longer for my boys, I want to get off of my medication for heart problems, diabetes, and pain on my joints. I want and need to be the best mom possible. All of my family is 200 miles away so I don't get to see them often. The next time I will see any of my family will be in May and I would love to show up to our annual get together with a lot less of me. I am here to get and give support and encouragement since it is hard to do this solo. I am really looking forward to getting started and watching my numbers drop.

Hello Louisville Losers,
I'm 50 and have one child. And no, he's not 28 / married / with one child, he's 6! He deserves a Mom who can keep up with him. I'm coming to this site discouraged. I need to lose @ 40 pounds. I had lost about 20 pounds (the healthy way with WW) and was so proud of myself. Now, very slowly, I've gained most of it back. Now, back at the starting line, after working so hard, has hurt my motivation to try again. emoticon

Hey Lousiville Losers,
I'm the noob for today and I'm excited to start losing weight. I've officially started my journey last week and my goal is to get down to 135 lbs. Luckily, I've already lost 5lbs and I really need a lot of support. Looking forward to being on a team with others who have similar goals.

Hello Everyone!
I am just starting to use Sparkpeople again. I have about 100 pounds to lose. My plan is to count calories and workout daily either at home or at the gym.
I am 54 years old and attending nursing school. I decided to go to school after losing my job last year. I will graduate this coming spring. I know I need to lose weight and get in better physical condition in order to be ready for my new career. I sat at a desk and talked on the phone for 10 years at my old job.. I gained 80 of the 100 puonds that I need to lose because of sitting all day and snacking. Any of you from Louisville who want to do some challenges I'm ready!
