I joined SP a year ago but never got active on teams. I graduated from KU in 1987 but my heart will always be there! Always enjoy revisiting my old haunts there including Sellards Hall. I think we can make a go of getting the KU team stronger and more active. Let's go team!!!

feel the same way sugar free kind doesn't taste the same!

my goal for today is to choose healthier foods and hit the gym tonite stay within my calorie range also!

i've gained all the weight back that i lost within the last 2 weeks very dissapointed.. but thats what the holidays does to me when i don't hit the gym..

im not liking it butit seems that when i stop going to the gym the weight comes back on like nothing else even when eating healthy! that means im going to have to constantly work out to keep my weight off

hi-

that's so funny that you would say hot chocolate, because I had some last night too! Yes, that does fill me up and it fills my chocolate craving. I guess there is also sugar free, but it just doesn't taste the same. Goal for today is to make good food choices, and eat between 1200-1500 calories for the day! Have a good day everyone.

Hi again -

So I have a question. I am a snacker, especially in the evening at home, in front of the TV. ugh. Do any of you have any ideas for not eating after dinner, or anytime between meals on the weekends. This is really what kills my attempts at dieting successfully!

Hi all!

My name is Maggie. I graduated from KU in 2001 and 2005 (Master's). I've been taking classes at the Edward's Campus to get an extra certification. I live in Johnson County and teach in KCK.

I've been on Sparkpeople for almost a year now, but haven't been that active...making excuses mostly. I have renewed my commitment to getting healthier and losing about 30 pounds. My current goal is 10 percent of my body weight by Valentine's Day...about 17 pounds. I'm up for anything that will hold me accountable for meeting my goals!

Hi -

I read about sparkpeople in the Shape magazine and am so amazed by all the different resources and support on this site! I am a 44 year old single mom, who was born and raised in Lawrence, KS and am still here! I graduated from KU and love my Jayhawks!

I had a really rough summer and had started a diet program and lost about 13 pounds when my dad became ill and then passed away in July. Since then I have gained about 30 pounds! Eek! I have always been very healthy and active and now find it difficult to do the things I love because of my size and my lack of energy and stamina. I would love to get back into my old jeans hanging in my closet, but would be happy just to get back into a regular fitness routine, eat better, and have more energy. I'm hoping this site will keep me motivated. I'm going to see if a friend wants to join spark too!

Hey fellow Jayhawks! I'm kinda new to this "online" discussion stuff, but I am loving SparkPeople and the website. I graduated from KU in December 1996, gosh that doesn't seem that long ago! I've got 35 pounds to lose and find it difficult to stay on track because I work full time and I've got two kids (4 and 7) and a husband to look after. Eating is usually cheap and quick and finding time to exercise is a challenge. I'm glad to have found your team and hope we can all encourage each other along our journeys. Rock Chalk Jayhalk!

P.S.- You can get points for "huddling" in the team each day. It's just another way to encourage each other and to get points!!

I agree! Lawrence is a great place to work out at! I may be graduating this year, and I seriously thought about how hard it would be to find another Rec Center like KU's.

I have been trying to stay healthy this summer, but I sprained my ankle badly back in April and then ran a 5k on it! I was so motivated in losing weight and after being in a cast for over 4 months now, the motivation is starting to fade away somewhat. I want to get back to the rec soon! I feel like I'm getting fat! Some good news though, I wore my air cast while bike riding the other day for the first time in months! I took it slow, but it made my whole day!

Good luck everyone, and always feel free to email me if you need to talk about anything. I'm no expert, but I'm always an open ear! Losing weight is draining not only physically but also mentally!

I just found this group. I graduated from KU quite a long time ago (it would take more than my finger and toes to count the years), but I still live here. I work in Lenexa, but I just can't tear myself from Lawrence. I would like to lose around 26 pounds and I feel it would really help my running. Lawrence is a great town to run in and just live in. I can't wait to get to know all of you. Best wishes to you all in reaching your goals!!!!

Hi! I graduated in May '07 and I really miss the rec center. Never thought I'd say that! I'm currently living and working in Lawrence and my husband is finished up his degree at KU. When he graduated in a year and a half, we'd like to start having children so I want to get in shape (and stay in shape) before then. I have 23 lbs to go.

Hi. I'm a nurse at KU Hospital in KC. I hope to lose about 35 lbs also, I haven't been too serious about it lately. There's been a lot going on lately and its all I can do just to remember to eat, much less not junk. I took the quiz that said I was in Fast Fuel mode.

Have a Blessed Day
