Hey everyone. I am new to Sparks and the Santa Barbara/Ventura areas. I have met no one and need someone to bike or walk with, either actually or just to keep motivating through posts. I reside in Ventura but have appointments in Santa Barbara every week. All have an active week, God bless y'all.
Take what comes at you in life and use it to lift you up!

Started SparkPeople again today for a 90 day challenge my Meetup team (member, not leader), Carpinteria Hiking Marvels, started. They have lots of fun hikes and activities in the county and beyond. Hiking is not running in this group (whew). Boulder toss is really fun.
Anyway, this looks like a great SparkPeople team for me.

Hi everyone. I've been here about six weeks and have lost 12 pounds so far. Wondering if there is anyone in the Santa Maria area. I would like to try a "couch to 5k" program but would love to have a training buddy. :) I've never tried running and I may hate it..but think it would be cool if I could actually do it.

Hi there, I'm Nicole! I'm 25 years old and I am a full time college student at SBCC. I am new to the area and hoping to meet some new people. Since moving down I have put on a few pounds and I refuse to let that continue to happen. Back home I had a running partner that helped motivate me to get my butt up at 6 am and run every morning. I'm hoping to maybe connect with someone who also enjoys running and might want a partner. And if not, hopefully just meet some people in my area that are on the same journey I am!
It's too bad your page is set to private, or I would post a welcome on it...so welcome!

Hi Everyone. I started on SP last week and just found this team today. So glad there is a local team. I live in Goleta near the Trader Joe's.
I turn 40 (that seems to be a common thread here) in March and don't want to be fat in my 40's. I am divorced with two kids and a dog. Cooking healthy kid friendly meals is my challenge this week...but I am making it happen.
I have decided I needed a healthier lifestyle. I will be 40 in June 2010. I have decided that my 40's will be a much healthier place for me than my 30's.
I am a mother of 4 grown boys, the baby just turned 18 last July. I am married to a wonderful man in the USAF. I am a grandmother to an awesome 2 year old grandson. Those are my 6 top reasons for wanting to get healthy. I want to live a long full life and the path I was on was not the answer. So here I am ready to make a change.
I am from Missouri just got here to Cali not long ago. I am looking for a friend/buddy to walk/workout with in my area.
Hi everyone! I'm new to the Santa Barbara area (originally from the Southwestern Ontario, Canada area). The lifestyle (and weather!) here is so different. It's really wanting me to get in shape finally, though I've been thinking about it for a while. Anyways, just wanted to say hi and good luck to everyone. :)
I'm Sharon and so lucky to live in SBC and glad to be on Spark and in the SBC team. I live in Lompoc and really would like someone to work out with. That's one thing I have been slacking on. Please let me know if you live in Lompoc and want to work out or if you just want/need a friend for support. Thanks
Go SB! Hi, I'm Steph, I'm 25 and I live in Santa Barbara and work in Goleta. I work out at GVAC, and would love to have a buddy join me and keep me accountable. I've got 49 lbs to lose by June 2010. Message me if you're interested!
