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.

I just started today! I still don't really know what I'm doing. I don't even know if this is going to post the right way. sorry if I did it wrong... looking for advise, friends... possibly someone in the area I can get to know and maybe work together with. I don't do too well with routines when I'm alone in the process.

Well I'm new to Spark People. I have always said I was far but I don't think I truly realized how big I was until I looked at my thighs and gut this weekend. It's time for a change. I'm Jody I'm 30 and have two girls. I have lived in North Idaho my whole life and ready to be the best I can be. I get my My bachelors degree in one month My major is business administration with a minor in marketing. I wanted to start a job with a healthier looking body but didn't make it and still want to get that dream body. Good luck to all of you.

The journey has to begin somewhere! Why wait?

I am a mother of two, a wife to an awesome husband who is currently deployed, and a 3rd grade teacher!! My husband and I had a Skype discussion how we both needed to lose weight and become more active . . . he can lose weight like a champ. I, on the other hand, need extra motivation and some accountability. I tried another on-line weight loss program and became extremely frustrated with trying to use their food tracker . . . I am so grateful how much easier the Spark Food Tracker is. I started working out everyday last week, and then remembered that I should create a Spark account again. I am so grateful that I did. I am already starting to feel the effects of more water, more exercise, and better food. My goal is to lose 30 pounds by the time my husband returns in July! So happy to be here!!

Hi, I am a member at the down town YMCA looking for a work out partner who could meet me there most evenings between 5 30. and 6 00 pm and we would do classes or cardio and weights together. i am in ok shape but have been in fabulous shape six years ago. I need consistency in a routine and think a partner to work out with would help a lot
toward that goal, if interested e-mail me at felicity.ray1@yahoo.com or give me a call at 208-353-7622 it is better to call as i hardly ever check my e.mail

Hi my name is Lorri and I live in Driggs, Idaho. We moved here from Michigan in July 2010 and we love it, we live at the base of the Grand Teton Mountains, most beautiful place in the world. emoticon

I started my weight loss journey Sept. 6, 2012 and at that time I weighed in at 211, this morning just at 6 months later I weigh 163. My goal is to be 145 by June 1st, which will be when I walk in my college graduation and receive my Bachelors Degree in Accounting emoticon . Pretty good achievement for a mom of 4 adult children and a 19 month old grandson.

I would love to connect with anyone who is on this side of Idaho to exercise with or just chat.

Hi! My name is Kim and I live in Grangeville, ID. I'm 47 years old and have lived in Idaho for the past ALMOST 6 years. I relocated to Idaho from Texas and seemed to have left most of my motivation down south! I've gained almost 45 lbs. since moving here and now I want to get serious about taking it off. I just don't feel like "me" right now and I've never been uncomfortable in my own skin. I don't like the feeling! I know the value of daily accountability to am hoping tha this will not only guide me along so that I don't lose my motivation after a week or two...but also to make some friends along the way! Here's hoping...! Kim

Stay Sparked!

I have been in and out of this site for several years now and find that when I really get serious, it works. Just can't seem to stick with any changes for longer then a couple of weeks though. Hoping this time is different. Looking forward to seeing my son graduate from high school in a few months and want to enjoy that with a healthier body:)

Hi guys, I'm Gina and I live in Idaho Falls. This is probably my 50th attempt at trying to get healthy and lose weight and hopefully this time will stick. I work full-time and have a little girl who will be 2 in April. Hopefully I stay motivated and get stuff done!

Hi Everyone,
My name is Colleen. I live in the Boise, Idaho area. I have been struggling with my weight since I was a teen. My highest weight was 400 pounds It has taken 10-15 years to get down to what I am today 295 pounds. I still have about 150 pounds to go. I have depression that gets in the way of my success sometimes and slows me down. I never give up completely. I will take a break from time to time when the dieting stresses me to much. My goal is to lose 40- 50 pounds by my birthday (end of September) and start a regular exercise plan of walking 10 minutes, 5X a week to start out with. I will build up my exercise as I get some more weight off, as I have bad knees and it is still a difficult challenge to walk.

Hi everyone! I'm currently living in Boise Idaho. For the first 25 years of my life I lived in Texas. I moved to Idaho about six years ago and met my husband here, fell in love and got married. We moved to California for a year but decided to come back and make Boise our home. I was diagnosed last year with Type 2 Diabetes and anyone who knows me, knows I hate taking medication. So I didn't. I've been trying to watch what I eat and have even lost some weight, I'm not as large as I was when I was diagnosed with diabetes. When I went to the doctor, my A1C level had dropped a whole point. To make sure I stay off medication and get back to the Prediabetes A1C levels, I'm more focused then ever on losing weight and keeping it off. I do not have any motivation when it comes to working out, but I'm sure the more weight I lost, the more I will want to see come off and exercise will come then. For now I'm just watching my calories and learning the foods that make me happy while not having a lot of calories.

I'm excited to meet everyone here!

Hi all. My name is Courtney. I'm originally from Florida. I made the move to Idaho in January of 2011 and am currently living in Mtn. Home. I just recently had a health screening at my job. Granted, I new my weight had gotten out of control... I just didn't realize just how bad I had let it get. I was in complete shock when I stepped on the scale. Never in my life have I ever came close to weighing this much! I knew it was time for a change. My health coach at work suggested joining this site. I am glad I did! It has been a huge help in getting me started!

Hi, I just started out here, and am using this in conjunction with my regiment of plexus slim to keep tract and hold myself accountable for my weightless. I am 33 years old and working at loosing 60-120 pounds. I live in beautiful Lewiston Idaho, and enjoy doing just about anything in the outdoors with my Husband and two little girls. I have a bad right knee due to an injury sustained when I was in the Army so my activity level has been pretty well no existent. I got news in December that the VA hospital has finally approved me to get a Total Knee Replacement, but they are requiring me to loose 60 lbs first. This among others was my big kick in the pants to get going. I can't wait until the day that I can go shopping for cloths and actually like how they fit and look. More importantly, being able to find clothes in ANY store not just the ones that carry a small plus size section hidden in the far corner full of mothballs!

Hello Idaho peeps, I am a stay at home mom plus I home school my 4 children. With a long history of being over weight. I am at the heaviest I have ever been and I can't afford all the surgeries or even the other weight loss programs. I love this program so far. I just started it yesterday and enjoy everything it has to offer. I have lived in Boise for 6 years prior to that I was in Mountain Home. My goal is to lose 150 lbs.

My goal is to get up and move more. I would love to take my kids hiking without getting run down and out of breath. I am excited to meet others who are in the Boise are.

Hey all! I live in Nampa with my husband and two kids. I had my second baby in March 2012 and have had all sorts of fun health stuff since (a c-section, kidney stones, a procedure to break them up, anxiety issues, and multiple infections), but I am determined to lose weight. Normally, I just run and run as a way to lose weight, but with the health issues, I'm going to have to cut calories for the times when I can't exercise. My goal is to lose 13 pounds and I'm excited about SparkPeople! I love all the tools and will hopefully be up to exercising soon.

My running goal is to do a 10K in an hour or less in May (in the Idaho Potato Run)!

I look forward to "meeting" you all! :D

Good Morning,
Moved to North Idaho about 6yrs ago, such beautiful country up here. I am new to Spark People and looking for others who are on the weight loss journey. I lost 96lbs 2 yrs ago, spent last year re-gaining and losing the same 20ish pounds. I turn 40 in September and just do not want to go into another year/decade over weight and unhealthy. I am too young to feel this old. I have 73lbs to go to hit my goal.

Good morning! I am an Idaho native. I have been a SparkPeople Member for a number of years. I finally recommitted to taking my health into my hands in Oct. Due to the long absence from the site I reset my goals for the new year.
I hope and pray to make a life long change this time through. I have struggled figuring out the groups and message boards. So, here's to another step towards success.

Hi everyone my name is Ashley. Im in my early 20's... I looked into this site because ive gained A LOT of weight since i got married and had my baby. Like a lot of weight to lose! Around 100 lbs. The things im struggling with is motivation. I get really excited about a diet or exercise program, then after a couple days im "bleh, i dont feel like exercising" or "its ok i will only eat a little" (which it stupid because i definitely have a portion control problem!) I always seem to talk myself into do something i shouldnt, or talking myself out of doing something i should. It would help a lot having something to hold myself accountable to. Im struggling to know what my next step should be to getting healthier. Im excited at the tools this site might bring. Nice meeting you all!

Hi there! I'm Kara and I live in Meridian. I'm not new to SparkPeople, but it's been so long since i've done any tracking, or logging on for that matter, that I totally reset myself and I'm hoping to really stick to my goals. I've been in Idaho for about 3 years, but still don't know many people outside of work. I'm definitely up for finding spark buddies and friends who are looking for some mutual motivation. emoticon

Hello everyone, I am Becca and I live in Lewiston Idaho. I am just starting my journey here. I have seen some recent pictures of myself and I do not like them so I though I better do something about it. So hear I am. Ready to get going.

I am a mother of 3 beautiful children, I also run a daycare and go to school on line to get my teaching degree.

I need to just get up and start doing this. I did not do so great last night. I thought I did pretty good till I punched in dinner and I went over the calories. Wow! It was an eye opener.

Ready to go!!!!!

Hello everyone, I am Melissa and I live in Lewiston.

Tomorrow is actually my "day one" my 42nd birthday is today and I figured good time to start over would be the day after my birthday. I hope by my next birthday to be 42 pounds lighter (hopefully more then that but for now it is a reasonable goal).

I think the hardest thing will be counting calories and eating healthy.

Looking forward to getting to know other members of the group.

Hi my name is Genette and I am looking for a workout buddy...kinda. I would like someone to go to the gym with. I have a membership to one of the gyms but I am afraid to walk threw the door by myself.

If you're interested please let me know.

Genette

Hi Amber. I live in Idaho and was looking through this link to see if anyone is from Hailey, where we live. I noticed you are getting arthritis and are pretty young and I have some information you may need. My mom, who is in her 60's, was plagued with arthritis for awhile and needed a knee replacement years ago. Her health was still declining, even in the knee that she replaced. So, she went to a natural doctor guy (can't remember what the actual title was/is)and he suggested some pretty radical changes to her diet and now she is pain free (as long as she follows her diet, which she is careful to do). I was actually having some issues too awhile back (I am 43) so I am loosely following the guidelines and now have no problems. My suggestions are:
1. Follow a gluten free/ dairy free diet (sounds bad but really isn't hard) because gluten and
dairy are inflamitories and inflame the joints
2. Drink at least 8 cups of water a day to hydrate the joints
3. Drink 2 tsp Braggs Organic Apple Cider Vinegar in 1 c. water (may heat like tea) and sweeten with honey to taste
4. Eat more vegetables and fruit and less meats and carbs to get your body more alkaline (you can look up specifics of being more alkaline online)

It sounds difficult but food can be a foe or a friend to our bodies. I have found that the right food fuels our bodies to reparing itself and the wrong foods do the opposite. You are a beautiful young lady and you can be in good health if you choose to!

Hope this helps!

April

Seeking to please Him

Thank you for the welcome! I had no idea this site existed and it is wonderful!

I live in Boise, have a family of 4 children, 8 grandchildren and 1 great grand! I work full time and need encouragement to watch my weight and my glucose. I was very tired of writing down everything I ate, etc., and this site allows me to track myself much easier!

Thank you for this opportunity. I hope for great results!

Hi everyone! My name is Robyn and I live in Coeur d'Alene.

I found this site when I was channel surfing and someone told me to check out Dr. Oz. (I don't watch much TV). A gal was on who had used this site for support and she lost a substantial amount of weight and has kept it off for several years, which was very encouraging.

I have three kids: 27, 20, 7, a 1 yr old granddaughter, and assorted critters.

For some crazy reason I decided to go back to school and graduated from NIC in 2011 with my AAS in Medical Administration. If all goes as planned I will be graduation from Lewis-Clark State College (CDA campus) with my BAST. (Bachelor of Applied Science in Techology).

I have a million interests.

Why I'm here: I'm tired of being sick, fat, and tired. I want to be healthy and able to play with my 7 yr old. I need to learn better habits and ways of doing things. I had back to back surgeries last year and am just now being able to get moving.


Nice to meet you all!

Hi Spark Idaho, I am looking forward to joining in with the team. I recently was put on a gluten free, dairy free, soy free diet. More or less the Paleo diet. It's great! Good whole food. However, it is a big shift for cooking. My husband and I live in the Nampa, Caldwell area on a five acre hobby farm. He grows lots of fresh veggies and berries galore. Look forward to this journey together.

Hello fellow Idahoans! I live just south of Sandpoint and have been a Sparkperson for almost three weeks. I have set an initial goal of losing 50 pounds but have many more to lose after that. The SparkPeople website is so powerful, and I feel more empowered by it every day!

Hi, I'm Chrissy and I am from Hailey. I am working on learning about this site and losing 40-45 pounds. I can't believe that it got so out of control. If I can figure out where the challenges are I will participate in them. I will do my bestest. lol. Thanks for the opportunity to work with you.

If it is to be, it is up to me...

Hi,

I'm soo excited to be part of the team. I really can't believe I have never used sparkpeople before now. So a little about me...I'm from Emmett, Idaho (about 30-45 min from Boise) I am a relatively active person. I workout a couple times to week and I am an avid softball player. I play on a couple co-ed softball teams, we play once a week for league and have about 2-3 tournaments a month. Plus I am involved in our community playhouse (I've always been a sucker for being the center of attention) and go to school full time at Treasure Valley Community College in Caldwell, Idaho. I as well work a full time job. I don't have any kids yet but my boyfriend of 7 years are finally getting married Sept. 1st. So now I have the stress of planning a wedding....

the bad part is I feel like I use being busy as an excuse to eat what I want when I can. I make alot of excuses for my weight but I am ready to make a change. No more excuses!! I'm ready to take charge of weight. I want to be healthy and feel as good on the outside as I do on the inside. I want to start a family in the next year and I want to be ready. My hope is to give my children an amazing start by already having a healthy eating and living situation at home.

Ok that was long...Thanks!!

New to SparkPeople, not to Idaho; been living in Idy since '01, Ex-Air Force, now a happy civilian. Set a weight loss goal: started in December 2011, goal is to finish in December 2012 and to lose 45 lbs. Since Dec 11 have lost 14 pounds, so only 33 more lbs to lose. Oh, and I'm trying once again to go vegan full time...in Idaho trying to be vegan is kind of tough, since it means eating at home 100 percent of the time, but that's good because I need to save the moolah...
