Hey, My name is Clover. I am new to the Redding area, just moved here in May. So I am looking forward to learning the area. I live here with my husband and brother in law. Just started walking around the neighborhood here, My hubby will walk with me sometimes, but I would love to meet some new people. I dont have a job yet, so I have ALOT of free time. Seems like the only thing to keep me from going crazy is to work out alot. So yup thats me, hit me up. Would love to talk to ANYONE :)

HI! I'm a SAHM with two kids, ages almost 2 and almost 4. I'm married to my best friend. Been together for 7 1/2 years now. Married for 5. I started hitting the gym, to which I have had a membership since I was in my teens, at the end of Jan of this year on a regular basis....a good friend asked me to start doing some of the classes with her. So, it really began as a social thing for me, not a fitness thing and certainly not a weight loss thing. Yet, five months into it I have lost 30lbs and find myself doing fitness activities daily. I try to get in 100 minutes a day. It makes me feel good. And lately it seems to be rubbing off on my dear hubby, and he has quit smoking and started trying to get more fit himself.
I have actually lost more than 30 lbs, but it has been over many years. In 2006 I hit my heaviest of around 260. I'm 16lbs away from a 100lb weight loss. Sure, it's been over 5 years, but I have also had two kids in that time, and not really exercised much or dieted at all. I still don't diet. F#$! diets! I don't know anyone who has done the whole diet thing who has not gained the weight back at least once...so that says something to me about diets.
I will admit that I had eating disorder issues as a teen (though those have less to do with weight than other stuff, at least mine did). Diet pills, calorie restrictions, excessive workouts, laxatives.....all that good stuff. I don't deal with such issues anymore (knock on wood) I was thin and fit up until I was entering my late teens and early 20s and then I went over 200lbs.
So, that is my intro. This is a really quiet group.

We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit. ~ Aristotle

I have lived in Anderson for almost 46 years. I am married to the love of my life for 41 years. We have two sons, daughters-in-law, and 5 grandchildren. I work at a middle school as an administrative assistant/registrar. I am in need of losing about 20-25 pounds. I would love to meet others who would like to get together for walks, bike rides or what ever.

I am so excited to get a group together for walking, hiking, and fun stuff! When a group meets, it is a lot more fun that doing stuff on your own. I am 53, live on 5 acres in west Redding, and have dogs, cats, horses, chickens, and a sand boa. I need to lose about 50 pounds - it just seems to creep up - although I am very active. Yeah for this SparkPeople group!

Hi...I would love to see the Redding Team COME ALIVE! Thanks to everyone who responds. I am fairly new to Redding and would love to meet some ladies...walking the trails around the area would be great fun. Besides running a fitness facility, my husband and I enjoy hiking, biking and travelling. I am an avid reader and have been involved with the sparkpeople teams: '50 Books in a Year' and 'World of Books'. I am reading Three Junes by Julia Glass right now. I have been married 33 yrs, just moved from the NC coast, and have three grown children who are in NYC, Puerto Rico and NC. I have 15 lbs. to lose but face thyroid issues so the going is slow. I would love to host a strong spark group at our club. I love the support and in-put I have received through spark! Please visit my page and let's connect to encourage each other.

I am a Redding native. I live here with my husband and 9-month-old son. I'm looking forward to making some changes in my life and meeting others with similar goals.
