Hi I'm Lindsey and I live in Sedona and I HATE it. Yes, the red rocks are beautiful, but it's such a lonely place to live if you're 29 and single and had no friends in the area prior to moving here. I moved here in July and am leaving the state next month. But I do live in Arizona now so hello.

Excelsior.

Hi I am Christie, I am now living in Mesa and loving it. The weather is awesome and I love living next to a lake and park. Now that I am finally here and settled, I hope to become a little more active here and SP in general!

One day, one step at a time!

Hi, My name is Vici and I presently live in Bullhead City, AZ. My husband and I purchased property this past fall in Ash Fork, Az and am in the process of building a house. We want to get back to living how we did as kids; gardens, animals, and off grid as much as possible. I am a special education teacher. I hope to find a teaching position near Ash Fork for next school year.

It is just myself and my husband, we also have a furry child. His name is Tommy, he is a yellow lab and is my husband's service dog (for mobility). He is also my baby.

I have fought my weight my whole life. I can never remember when I was not overweight. I am tired of being tired and not able to do things. I have been lucky that my weight has not hindered my health, yet. I do have an autoimmune disorder that is rare, but it just hinders my mobility a little.

Hello Everyone, my name is Leila and I live in Mesa. I have been on Sparkpeople for quite a few years but I am just now starting to actually explore it and use it. I had been very large all my life. I stopped weighing in at 320. In Dec 2005 my mom passed away and in Feb 2006 I kicked out my abusive b/f and with all that stress gone, the weight started falling off me at a very fast rate, I didnt even realize I was losing it until I could no longer keep my pants up when walking. lol. I noticed a rather good size lump in my left wrist area that scared me pretty bad, until I realized I had one in the right wrist too. I had never seen bones there before. LOL. (and I work in the medical field too :-) ) Anyway. I got down to 170 before the stress of life got a hold of me, I was recently back up to 210 but thanks to Sparkpeople I am now at 198 again. I am just starting to incorporate exercise into this whole deal. So wish me luck please. lol :-)

Hello everyone, my name is Melinda from Laveen, AZ. I have been on Spark people for quite a few years now. Spark has really allowed to me to keep track of what I'm eating and to meet my weight loss goals. I have lost quite a few pounds so far but have not yet met my weight/fitness goals. I am new to the Arizona side of Spark.

Hi everyone! My name is Christie and I will be moving to AZ in the text 4-6 weeks. I am looking forward to the weather (I am originally from SD). I have been with SP for a few years now but have let excuses get in my way. I am moving to get a fresh start and my job opened up in Mesa so this is an excellent opportunity for it.

I am joining a little early because I am trying to find a place down there from here and am wondering if anyone knows of a decent apt that accepts pets in the Mesa or nearby surrounding areas. If you can help it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

I look forward to spending time here!

Christie

Happy New Year! emoticon

I am Brenda and I live in northwest Peoria, AZ which is near Sun City and Lake Pleasant, just outside of Phoenix.

I joined SparkPeople years ago but I've been away from it for a long time. I am excited to get going with SparkPeople again and with the SparkArizona team.

I recently under went cervical spinal surgery and my physical activities have been restricted. I just started physical therapy and decided this was the best time to get back on board with a supportive community through SparkPeople. I will be slow going for the next 2 months but as long as I do what I can do and gradually increase my exercising I will be well on my way to my goals for 2014.

I'm in the educational field (taught elementary school for 13 years before moving into educational technology) and currently I design web pages. I love to spend time in Idaho whenever I can. I have two adult children who also live in Peoria, AZ. I love football (Denver Broncos and ASU Sun Devils) and enjoy all other sports. Since I haven't been very active from this surgery I learned how to knit and crotchet. I'm not very good at either of them, but they keep my hands busy and I know I will get better with practice.

I'm excited about joing the SparkArizona team. Thank you for having me. Good luck and best wishes to everyone's 2014 goals. emoticon

~Brenda

Hello My name is Joy, I spend my winters in Arizona, my summers in Oregon
I have been on Spark People several years ago, but lost my internet service.
I have gained weight this past year, 40 pounds. Lack of exercise and over indulgence.
I have COPD now and find it very hard to be as active as I was three years ago.
I do go to the fitness center near by for Qi gong twice a week and water aerobics 2-3 times a week, I also walk at least 6000 steps every day.
I want to lose 43 pounds and fit into my size 12 clothing again.
I also have high blood pressure and I believe losing the weight will help to lower that. emoticon

Hi my name is Tina and I'm new to sparks and only four years in Az. I am looking for a buddy. I live in the west side of the valley almost to buckeye. I have started my new lifestyle about a month ago. I belong to La Fitness and I have for over a year now. But because of my working hours and didn't go and I continued to pay for the membership. Last year I got fed up with my job, my mother, and hubby. I quit. I got my mother into assisted living program, I quit my job, and I started excersing again. I am starting to feel better but now that I've quit my job I find I have lots of time on my hands.

Greetings from Prescott! My name is Lynsey and I have been committed to changing my life (and my butt) for a little over a month now. My daughter just turned a year, and with the way she is moving around (a little speed demon!), I need to be able to keep up. Not to mention stay alive and healthy to see her grow up and live her life.

I love that there are people near me that are going through the same thing and we have a general meeting place to talk and motivate!!! I admit, I have skinny days and not so skinny days, and it's helped tremendously having "spark people" to keep me looking forward.

Anyone who would like to talk or say "hi", please feel free, I love to talk and meet new people!

Have an awesome day!

Hello,
I am new to this forum. My name is Key and my weight loss journey began a month ago. I'm joining this group to connect with like minded people for weight loss tips, stories, ideas, suggestions. Also maybe even make a new sparkbuddy...

Welcome to SP! Tucson also has a team. At least once a year they have a get together. It's been very hard to find ways to get people together; conflicting schedules, skill levels, activity interests etc. but, we have to keep trying!

There is a "Find an exercise/spark buddy" forum for this team. There may be people in your area who have already made an entry for themselves. If not, your entry could be found by the next person.

Also, take a look at MeetUp.com. That's where I've found some exercise groups to join. Best wishes.

Good morning Arizona! My name is Debbie and I'm a week and 1/2 into spark people. We moved to vail in 2004 from Syracuse NY. I'm still trying to get used to having only 2 seasons :). I'm wondering if there are more vail members and if there is an organized walk or exercise program happening out here. I don't have anyone to exercise with and I would enjoy having a partner..
Thank you :-)

Hi. I am Carrie. I've lived in Tucson since 1988 with my husband and 2 sons. My husband was from here and i was from Coronado, CA, so it took a lot of convincing to get me to move. Since our sons our now grown and have their own homes, I really would like to move somewhere cooler in the state. We are 108 today, and will be 112 tomorrow!

I am moving to Arizona next month from Wisconsin for my first teaching job. I lived in Arizona as a kid (Scottsdale) and finally went back last December for the first time in 17 years. Oh how I missed it. I can't believe after applying for jobs all over the country, I got one in Arizona! I love the southwest and am so excited.

If you haven't done so yet, be sure to create an entry for yourself in the "Find a Spark/exercise buddy" team forum so you are a bit easier to find. And of course, take a look to see if someone is already waiting for you to connect.

Hello fellow Arizonians...

I'm new to the site and fairly new to Arizona (been here about two years now). I have lived in just about every region of the country, but I am originally from Louisiana. I joined the site on the advice of a friend so that I can develop a better concept of all the horrible junk I eat and begin to be more mindful of how what I eat contributes to my overall health and well being.

I'm 32 years old and live in southeastern arizona with my daughter and our multiple critters.

I train people and horses for a living. Training the horses is the easy part.

Looking forward to getting to know you fine folks.

Welcome! Getting through this website can be overwhelming. Just do a little at a time. You will find some topics more fun than others depending on your interests. There are very supportive teams with Spark. I'm not losing a whole lot of weight, it takes time. So I have no choice but to keep trying.

Good luck,

Claudine

Hi All, I am still “finding my legs” in this maze of posts and threads, teams and points…. I love the idea of SPARKSpeople. We relocated to AZ in 2011 after spending over a decade overseas. I am half way to my goal weight, but have been at the half way mark for the past 12 years...guess its time to dig deeper and work harder. We live a short distance from Sierra Vista Arizona located in the far south eastern corner of the state. I am a mother of 4 (3 adult children who have blessed me with grandbabies and one teen at home). I am deemed disabled due to a back injury and have endured many surgeries as I chased the hope of returning to my pre-injured self. I have been pretty good at adapting my life to manage my discomfort but find it also hinders in my quest to drop weight.

Welcome to all the new team members!

If you're looking for someone to help keep you motivated and accountable, be sure to create your own thread in the Spark Arizona team forum called “Find an Exercise/Spark buddy.” I hope you find someone soon!

Hi All,
I live in Prescott, moved here from Long Island, New York in 2005. It's cold here!
I've also joined another team but would like to read about the Arizona Team.
Good Luck in 2013! I'm looking forward to a slimming year and hoping exercise becomes a habit. Trying to keep a positive attitude one meal/day at a time.

Hello all my name is Brenda and I live in Surprise, Az. I've been on sparkspeople for a few years. My problem is I have a habit of no follow through. I start something and go all in just to fall off. So here I am again and it's the start of 2013. I pray for this year to be the year.

Hi! My name is Kara, I've just hit the end of my rope. I need to be held accountable for my food choices and I need to exercise more. I live in Laveen. I have three school aged kids. I work too much at a desk job, and I'm terrified of the gym (if I could ever even start to fit it into my schedule I guess). Now that it's not quite as hot as it used to be, I'm going to start walking and maybe even running!

Hi, that sounds like good exercise! And it will be great to get away for awhile for yourself. I wish we lived closer. emoticon

Hi, I'm Jaxx, currently residing in Avondale. I moved out here a few years ago from the Midwest to help take care of my mother. I've been over weight and fighting it since I was 18 years old. nearing 40 now, and I'm just sick and tired of being sick and tired.

I am going to be buying myself a nice cruising bike to ride around on for Christmas, so if anyone lives near Avondale and would like to plan some short bike trips, let me know. Could be fun :)

Hi My Name is Misti and I have lived in AZ for 5 years. I have entered my fourth decade on this planet and with a rambunctious 6 year old its time to lose some of this "baby" weight (my story and im sticking to it! ;) ) I just want to be as strong on the outside as I feel on the inside. Good Luck to everyone on this board and lets be active in supporting one another. :) emoticon

Hi y'all. I am excited to get started here. I live in Safford. I had an injury (serious back injury) and I let it beat me and got depressed and put on 90 pounds. I am done letting it beat me and have found a way to exercise without hurting myself and my doc finally approves. I bought a tadpole trike. Yesterday was my first day riding and so far I love it. I can't wait to get good enough for long rides while losing all this extra weight. Here's to my new life!

Hi everyone. I signed up with SparkPeople in 2009 but never used the site until July of 2012. I guess I wasn't ready to commit back then, but I am now! I live north of the 101 in Glendale (Arrowhead Ranch). When the weather cools, lol, it would be great to find someone to walk with.

Whether you say you can or can't, you will be right.

Don't be upset by the results you didn't get with the work you didn't do.

Hi everyone. We moved to Arizona 2 1/2 years ago and love it so far, could do without the summer heat, but we come to Mexico to get away from it. I live in Queen Creek near Mesa. I love Spark people and have joined Spark Coach and hope to be active and get in good health. I am a retired RN, love to scrapbook, make homemade cards, read and journal, and cooking of course. emoticon

Hi all!! I joined sparkpeople about a month ago and am loving it! I am located in Tempe right now. I have been living in Az for 5 years now (to the day! I just realized that!). I Would love to make some spark friends in the area or at least in the state! I want to eventually enter some 5k's and would love to meet some fellow sparkers :)

I have been overweight ever since I hit puberty, never even thought of eating healthy or exercising until last month. I can't begin to tell you how much of a big change that it's been!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week! and... emoticon

Hi everyone: Just joined the team. We moved from Ar to AZ 2 years ago and love it. I live in Queen Creek. I love Spark people and have joined Spark Coach also, so helpful. As anything else in life, the work is up to me. Spme days are so enthusiastic, some are not so much, but I feel with the motivation from SP, I can do this, I am determined. I scrapbook, make home made cards, knit, cross stitch and love to read. I am a retired RN and love being home, especially with the great weather most of the time here in Az. We are in Mexico right now escaping the heat, but do miss the neighborhood. Looking forward to a great experience.

Hello, my name is Toni and I live in Surprise. I'm twenty two years old and my goal is to lose sixty to seventy pounds (first ten are the hardest) and make my life all about me. Not about my weight or food or stress or trying to be better for someone else because I'm not good enough for myself. I want to get healthy and get happy and then get out there and live my life. I hope we can all work together towards our goals.

Hello everyone, not sure if I'm doing this right or not, but here it goes. My name is Amanda, I'm 26 years old and have the best lil fam that anyone can be blessed with. I've NEVER BEEN OVERWEIGHT IN MY LIFE, until 3 years ago when i had my first baby. As these past three years have flown by oh so fast, I'm sad to say that i havent lost the weight. I've never felt more trapped in my own body and I'm beyond embarrassed. My goal is to lose about 70-75 pounds, be healthy, feel good about myself, and shop at whatever store i want to without having to second guess if they have my size (woot woot). I'm very happy that I've come across SP and havent been more motivated to actually make positive changes in my health. I wish everyone the best of luck on meeting their goals and maintaining it forever and always... emoticon
