Hi my name is Ivy thus my SP name & photo. :) I have been here since 2012. I hit my goal weight last year in April and have maintained. I have a full bio on my sparkpage if you want to know more.
I have a fitbit one so I pay a lot of attention to steps/fitness minutes/sleep. I track my food with precision and use an excel sheet with obsession. LOL.
My goal is to exercise 2-3hrs/wk & 3-5x/wk. Otherwise to just keep active. Big believer in "NEAT" stands for NonExercise Activity Thermogenesis, which is scientist speak for moving around doing stuff that is not sport or exercise.

Hi. My husband is a native Idahoan and while we are full-time RVers, we will be staying in the Treasure Valley for a couple years. I am returning to SparkPeople to help document my progress in managing my health.

Returning after a couple of years. Over the past 3 years I have lost 30 lbs, but want to lose some more and get in better shape. Over the winter I did well, but it sure took a toll on my fitness because exercise is harder. I did get in a little snowshoeing, but looking forward to hiking and want to be able to do some miles!

Hi all,

I am not new to Spark or ID, but I just discovered this team. I live in Kuna. I am married, an empty nester (except for the dog) and want/need to loose weight and get back into shape so that I can enjoy the beautiful foothills without keeling over from exhaustion! The older I get the more I want to be healthy instead of being thin.....don't get me wrong both would be nice, but to be at a weight that would allow me to be fit enough to enjoy all that life has to offer is why I am here.

I am looking forward to meeting all of you.

Hi All! Our family just moved to Idaho, 2 months ago..previously lived in AZ and CA, so the colder weather is a change for us but we're loving it! We love the outdoors, fishing, hiking, you name it. With the move, there was a lot more stress, a lot of eating out due to our kitchen being packed and for a few months we were very unhealthy...a few weeks ago I started T25 program and have been making changes to my diet and our family has gotten on track with cooking more at home and preparing great meals....looking forward to making friends and gaining support here to stay on track with fitness and eating well!

Hello! My name is Jason and I'm new to SP but getting the hang quick. My goal is to go from my current weight (257.4 lbs. as of 1/1/2015) down to my military weight of 180 lbs. I enjoy many outdoor activities such as fishing, hunting and geocaching. Looking forward to teaching my kids these things as well as keep up with them haha!

Burning is the indicator of when to push harder.

Your body can do more than your mind thinks it can. When the burn starts and your mind says it's time to stop, go harder. Strive for 10 more reps, one more inch or 10 more seconds. Only then will you succeed in overcoming the mental obstacles and take control of who you become!

Hey, My name is Destiny. Grew up and live in Shelley. I have always wanted to lose weight, especially after having my three kids. I'm not done yet, but in between I want to stay fit and maybe lose some weight. It seems like every time I start exercising I get pregnant. Oh well. I am looking forward to the support and community.

Hi...I am 41 and living in Canyon County. Growing up, I never worried about my weight or struggled with it. I had two children in my 20's, and bounced right back. At 30, I had one more and have never recovered, lol. I have always been a size 4, but now - more like a 14 and have been for a few years. I have a great husband but he doesn't have any weight to lose. My youngest is a competitive gymnast and is in incredible shape and my only other child still living at home is naturally thin. So, it's hard not having anyboudy at home to team up with when it comes to the struggles of trying to lose. They will eat healthy with me, and my little one will exercise with me I'm sure, but they don't have the same emotional up and downs as I'm sure to have while I get my life change on track. So, I am very excited for some support!

Hi, my husband and I just moved to Idaho 6 months ago. I absolutely LOVE it here!! I am also kind of new to the spark teams in general. I've known about them but haven't done much with them. Is there a particular focus for each team? This one?

Thanks and looking forward to getting more involved on spark people. emoticon

Hello! I joined SparkPeople two weeks ago today. I am 52 years old and live in Boise. My goal is to lose 125 lbs. I am on the Alternate Day Fasting which is working well for me. So far I have lost 12.5 lbs so 10% of my goal. I have done a lot of different diets over the years and have found that I am able to stick with this one easily. Well see how it goes over the next few months.

Hi! HAPPIER321

I live in Boise and also have Type 2 but I just starting getting the Boise/Treasure Valley team up and running so I have been super busy!

I hope you will join our team too! I belong to more than one team. I am also taking the 8 - week Diabetes Challenge. I was trying to lose weight there and also get my fasting blood sugar down.

If you friend me I would love to walk with you in the good weather coming up! On the Boise team there is a place to post where you like to walk and can friend other people so you can find someone near to you. Hope I see you on the posting boards!

Hello everyone,

I am a native Idahoan, currently residing in Post Falls. I have traveled to and lived in other places in the US and Canada, but I always seem to end up back in Idaho. It is still the most beautiful place I know! I have about 30 pounds to lose, and I am most interested in getting fit and healthy. I have had stomach surgery, so it is difficult for me to follow any diets since I cannot eat all the food the diets call for. Also, I have a gluten intolerance, so must eat gluten free if I am to make any progress. One of my goals is to stop beating myself up for every little mistake, and I feel better even since setting this goal. I wish health wealth and happiness for this team. God knows we could use it =)

Hello. My name is Sandra. I am 28 years old and i am originally from Russia. I was adopted to a family in the US when i was 16. when i was 19 i moved to Rexburg, ID to go to school.
At 21 i had my first baby, Kiley who is now 7. two years later i had my 2nd baby, Kyson who is now 5. After i had my son i was not planning on having any more so i start working on loosing weight and getting back into shape. It was a lot of hard work but after two years i finally lost it all and more then i probably should have. I went down to 98 pounds which was not healthy. Soon after i found out i had cervical cancer cells and we had to make a decision if we want it to have one more baby or if we were done. We decided to go ahead and get pregnant. It didn't take long
for me to get pregnant, but like the doctors warn me it was a really hard pregnancy. I was on bed rest from 23 weeks, so i end up gaining a lot of weight, by the time my last baby was born i was 150 pound and been only 5 feet tall it was a lot. Ha. I was really hoping that she would be a really big baby and i will loose most of the weigh, but i was wrong. Now a year later i am still 125 pounds. I dont have a lot of time to work out so this is my start. I want to learn to eat healthy and control my portion so i dont over eat and gain even more weight. I am also looking forward to talking to other moms and people here and making friends.

Hi all. I'm originally from England but Eagle, Idaho has been my home for nearly 9 years. Hit the big 5-0 last year and worked hard at making lifestyle adjustments. Jumping into the New Year determined that this is the year that 10-15lbs I've been dragging around with me seemingly forever goes away. I'm lucky in some ways - always been a walker and spent a few years vegetarian so healthy eating is not as much my issue as just loving food and wine. Looking forward to 'hanging out' here and getting ideas and inspiration.

Hey there Star. I crochet and knit, as well. Nothing fancy. In fact, I can't do hats. I'm still on squares and rectangles! ;)

It's a great hobby to have-- we can keep the temp down in the house, and bundle up with blankets. Saves us on the power bill!

Kelli,

It's nice to meet you. I love to cook and sew as well. I also dabble a bit in crocheting. I personally hate running. All you runners out there simply amaze me. So I say go for it and I'll cheer you on from the sidelines. I'm more of group class aerobics type of girl. I love step, hiphop, and zumba. However, I also like being outside. I hike, and snowshoe. My goal is to someday walk the El Camino from Portugal to Spain.

You never fail until you stop trying.

Hello Idahoans,

My name is Star. I'm from Pocatello, ID and I'm not really a new member I just haven't been active for a very long time. As a result I have gained back almost everything I lost a little bit at a time. Well I'm no longer going to allow my appetites to rule. It's time for brain power, skills, strategies, and simple environment changes to be in charge. I'm a mother of 3 boys who are ages 10, 8, 6. I'm married to a self-employeed accounted who likes me being overweight. This is my most difficult challenge. Don't get me wrong he will love me no matter what size I am, but he likes me bigger than smaller. Weird I know, but it is what it is. I am currently applying to graduate school for developmental psychology. So, I would like to look my best for upcoming interviews. I'm motivated by looking good, feeling good, and having more energy to play. Hope to get to know some your smiling faces and help you achieve your weightloss goals as you help me achieve mine.

Hi All,
My name is Kelli and while I have been on SparkPeople before, I have never fully committed. This time is going to be different. I am 100% committed to this. I read an interesting article yesterday called the anti-diet. She made some great points about not following the fad diet of the season and using whole healthy foods to lose weight. So that is what I am doing. After trying everything out there, from Atkins, to Weight Watchers and everything in between I am giving up the diet miracle. I am in this for my health, my son, and my husband. So hopefully my motivation will continue through tomorrow.

I live in Boise, and I have about 40 lbs to lose. I love to sew, bake, scrapbook, and the outdoors. I have a 22 month old son, and he is the joy of my life. My exercise of choice is running and I completed a half marathon once upon a time. I want to do that again.

Nice to meet everyone!
Kelli

Good Morning, My name is Deb. I live in the tiny village of Yellow Pine, in the center of the state (about 20 miles from the Frank Church Wilderness Area). In 2002 I was diagnosed with diabetes. I spent the next 8 years working toward changing my lifestyle. I managed to lose 102 pounds, stop smoking, and create a healthier way of living. I retired last winter. With my new freedom, I discovered a love of cooking/baking and 20 pounds. When the scales told me 212, I joined SparkPeople. I struggle to commit time for myself (so I joined the Spark Idaho challenge). I have started an exercise group. We all brought what equipment we had to the Community Hall and we meet a few times each week for a good workout and a lot of laughter. I adore hiking in the hills around us. I plan to enter the cross country ski race in February (I learned to ski just a couple years ago). My hubby, my dog and I are thrilled to live in the beautiful Idaho backwoods. I want to live in a way that lets me be here as long as possible.
Hugs,
Deb

Hello everyone. I live in Southwestern Idaho. I need to lose about 30 more pounds for health reasons to be within the weight range my doctor wants me to be in. Since the beginning of the year, I have lost 10.7 pounds and have nearly 30 left to go.

Hi all,

It is great to meet all of you. I enjoyed reading all of your messages and look forward to getting to know you.

I have just moved back to Idaho (Meridian) after living in WA and AZ for several years. I am glad to be back in this wonderful state. I am also back to Spark after some regrettable time away. I had to reset my tracker to reflect my weight gain....so sad :(

Oh well, I will just keep trying until I get it right!

I have tried water aerobics.. when I had money at least I did. I live in the magic valley and far enough from a YMCA that the cost of the gas is prohibitive.. but I am trying not to let the get me down. I tried out some of the videos on the site and that was helpful so for now I will use those.

My name is Kathleen. I have a huge goal (lose 200 lbs. no that isn't a typo). I don't know how to get there yet, but I figure I can find people to help me get there. I joined Sparkpeople because it was free, I live on a limited budget *very limited*. I have tried weight watchers and many other diets plans. every time i lose weight something terrible happens in my life.. well not always terrible but i got pregnant 3 x's when I was losing weight and then after starting to try again I went into kidney failure due to an infection getting into my blood. I HAVE to lose weight. I walk 2-3 miles a day at my job, but need to find a work out that won't kill my knees.

Hi!
My name is Patty and I live in Boise. I'm relatively new to the state,have only lived here a bit over 3 years. Idaho is a beautiful state, from what I have seen. I am finishing my education and working. By the way I know that "sieze_the _day" is spelled wrong but the correct spelling was already taken. I am trying (again) to loose weight and get healthy as I'm sure many of you are doing too! I look forward to getting to know the community and making some friends along the road to healthy ville. :)

I'm just starting out in a crawl, but in a little bit I'll be up to a walk and then a run. Watch out snails, I'm gonna beat you at the race!

Hi! My name is Nelda. I am from Caldwell. I LOVE the mountains in Idaho. I can't wait to go visit them again.

Live your life each day as you would climb a mountain. An occasional glance towards the summit keeps the goal in mind, but many beautiful scenes are to be observed from each new vantage point.

Hello, I am Julie. I signed up in January but never had the time to get involved. I am looking for others who want to touch base in support of a good cause--our health!

I'm a returning member. A recent survivor of cancer, now is the time to drop the weight and get healthy so I can be around a long time. I'm in Nampa, and agree with all the posts - we all need support to get through this. Does anyone need a walking buddy? I work 8 to 5, so I'm going to have to squeeze my exercise in at odd times.

Hello Jessica

I'm Genette. Where do you live? I don't really know what I am doing either. But I would be interested in a workout partner
