Hello Binghamton Team. I'm very new to Spark People but have spent a bit of time the last two days trying to learn the ins and outs. I have been procrastinating at getting started again on healthier living and am hopeful this is a new beginning for me. I wish you all success and hope to be there with you!

Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other.

Hey I am Erin. I am 25 years old and want to lose 55 more lbs after only losing 5 in two weeks but hey its better then nothing. I am married and have a 9 year old daughter. I have been a nurses aide for 7.5 years and I am in college now set to graduate in may. Two years ago i was only 15 lbs from my goal weight and felt awesome, but with a back injury, and stresses from school and my husband being away I gained back 45 lbs back which was 10 lbs more then I weighed previously. I am looking for friends in binghamton to share my journey with and to help me along the way. I am now using my gym membership 3-4 days a week and I just joined a Zumba class yesterday that startes next week at the YMCA. I am very excited and I want to lose at least 23 more lbs by graduation and then another 30 after that. Lets see where this journey takes me.

Hi - I'm Heather, been on Spark People for a while now but just joining the local team. I'm 36 and losing weight for health/medical reasons. I have about 60 pounds to lose. I used to be in GREAT shape as a late teen/young adult, dancing 5 days a week (ballet/jazz) but then when I graduated college I just dropped out and then met my husband who is an amazing cook, and just kept steadily gaining weight every year (we've been married 12 years). I peaked this past fall in weight, and was started on medication for hypertension, which is just not OK at 36 years old, to me. I've been on thyroid medication since I was 22, and I'm hoping to be able to be off the BP meds, and lower the thyroid meds as the weight comes off.

I was having a hard time motivating myself to exercise, until I started dancing again. I've been doing a 30-minute ballet class for myself every night while my daughter falls asleep (one of the only tiems I have 30 minutes where I'm not doing something else and it's quiet in the house), and I'm loving it. It's only been a week that I've been doign it and my body is already more flexible and just feels better for doing it.



My hobbies are knitting, baking, reading, surfing, and watching TV (none really great for losing weight, are they? ha!)


The worst thing I ever did as a kid....well, really, I was an angel as a kid so there is nothing. In college I co-hosted a huge party at my then boyfriend's house while his parents were on vacation.

I love most types of music, with a couple exceptions I won't mention because many people really like the ones I don't. Hee hee. My favorites alternate between funk, hard/alternative, dance/hip hop, and classical. So, um, pretty varied.

Weirdest thing I ever ate? Hmm. I guess the squid sauce my sunt used to make every Christmas Eve. As a kid, I never could quite figure out why I didn't like the Christmas Eve pasta (as opposed to regular day pasta) but choked it down every year, never bothered asking why it was different, until I was about 16 and went over to her house while she was making it. That's when I realized why it was so different than the normal pasta sauce the family made! And that's the year I started taking 1 polite bite and nothing more.

* What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten? Calamari

My name is Kristy and I live in Kirkwood. Married for 10 years with 4 boys- ages 11, 10, and almost 5 year old twins.

My hobbies: cross stiching, working out, playing with the boys, reading anything by Agatha Christie or Danielle Steele.

Worst thing did as a kid: Hmmm... I might have to put some thought into that. Nothing is sprining to mind, but I'm sure it's there somewhere!!

Favorite band or artist: Poison! Anything country. I sort of enjoy a little bit of everything, except heavy metal. Big fan of '80's bands.

Wierdest thing eaten: I tried sushi- smelled horrible and tasted nasty! Won't be doing that again!

You know I don't think I ever did this so I'll do it now. LOL

Hobbies: I love to swim, play with my daughter, knit( i'm not good but i can make a mean scarf, lol, I learned while I was pregnant to help relieve stress and try n lower my BP) I love sports too ( playing and watching especially basketball) and I used to be a music major so I love love playing my viola and singing.

Worst thing done as a kid: I was a child who was way too sarcastic and when mad at my parents I was just mean. My mother went to weigh watchers and on the way back from there I was in the backseat and she was excited and said "Mom, lost 10 pounds hun isn't that exciting." To which I said "Great 10 more and we'll see who you really are." I feel horrible for that to this day. ( Note: I wasn't always like that I was just mad at her. I hope DD doesn't do that to me but i know I'll get paid back ten fold).

Favorite Band: I love all types of music so I am don't think I have any one favorite one.

Weirdest thing ever eaten: One of my father's sandwiches. He used to be very "inventive" when I was younger. I think the one i tried was macaroni salad and baked beans on toast. I think I liked it at the time but atm I don't think I could stomach it. LoL

What are your hobbies? I adore reading. I also spend a lot of time online as I have many friends who don't live in the area, so that's how we keep in contact. And I'm the biggest Harry Potter nerd in the Binghamton area, I guarantee it.

What's the worst thing you did as a kid? Haha, I forged my dad's signature on a note I wrote to get me out of gym for the entire year.

What's your favorite band or artist? Coldplay. Aaaand Ministry of Magic, a wizard rock band.

What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten? Um, a orange vinaigrette for a fruit salad in the form of a shot? My sister and I did it because there were leftovers.

Hi, I'm Vanessa and 22 years old. I'd love to find someone in the Whitney Point area to walk with, I need all the motivation I can get!

What are your hobbies?
- I love to read! I also love to bike ride, walk/jog, knit (though I'm not too fast yet), and cook.

What's the worst thing you did as a child?
- I had the worst temper tantrums when I was young, and I had a tendency to get lost whenever I was out with my family (malls, parties, rest stops on the side of the highway). I can't think of an overall worst, but I wasn't the calmest child, haha.

What's your favorite band or artist?
- I love The Cat Empire, they're so upbeat and fun, and I also love The Shins, Paul Simon, Meat Puppets, Ben Folds Five, Rush, and The Faint. I don't listen to the radio, so I don't know most of the groups that are popular now.

What's the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
- I love eating different kinds of meat, like shark, buffalo, quail, venison, and my favorite: ostrich. I'm half Sicilian, so for Easter we used to eat rabbit, which made my friends gasp, haha. One time my sisters and I ate dog treats because they smelled good, haha. The one meat I won't eat is duck, because they're my favorite animal (and fox, so I wouldn't eat that, either).

Hobbies: don't really have any! I used to scrapbook, but now I cart kids to games and practices, work, and do housework! Oh, I do workout whenever I can.

Worst things done as a child: In the 9th grade I tried some alcohol that some kid brought onto the bus. Not sure what it was, but it was nasty! My parents found out, got grounded and had to sit in the front of the bus for the remainder of the year! UGH!

Music: I like everything, really depends on my mood

Wierdest thing eaten: Nothing, i am a picky eater!

Hi everyone, I'm new to SP and to this group.

My hobbies are reading, computer games, playing with my dogs and kids, and I hope to get back into playing my sax.

As a kid, I was pretty good at not getting caught... my brother took a lot of the heat.

I have eaten octopus salad before. It was... interesting, but not my cup of tea.

I'm excited about having attainable goals and being able to meet them.

Hobbies: Reading, playing games and chatting on computer, spending time with my 2 year old, scrap booking, agility with my dog (I haven't done in a while I look forward to getting back into soon).

As a kid I used to get my older brother into trouble for things that he didn't do.

I like most kinds of music, I don't have a favorite.

Weirdest thing I've ever eaten? Um, I tried eggplant parm but found I didn't like it. I think that's the strangest thing I've ever ate.

I would love to find a buddy in my area to maybe work out with or walk with when I can.

4/2 - Want to lose my first 10 lbs.

Hey everyone. I'm Rachel.

My hobbies are being a dj, reading, and playing with my computer.

I don't think I ever did anything all that bad as a kid.

My favorite band is currently Sugarland.

The weirdest thing I've ever eaten is, well, I can't think of anything. I don't eat anything all that odd.

Rachel

* What are your hobbies? Reading, horseback riding, playing with my computer

* What's the worst thing you did as a kid? I cut my sister's hair into a buzzcut.

* What's your favorite band or artist? Peter Murphy

* What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten? I'll eat almost anything except organ meats and insects... and I would probably try those even under the right circumstances (like a bet with a nice payoff! emoticon ) so it might be easier to answer what weird food have I NOT eaten, which would definitely be insects!

For recent weird stuff, my DH and his buddy have been experimenting with spicy desserts recently - I've had habanero cheesecake and habanero-orange creme brulee in the past month - delicious!

I picked on a girl by telling her that Santa was not real and made her cry- it was 4th grade, and others were being mean to me, so she was my scapegoat- I have since apologized to her and she laughed saying she did not remember it, but I still felt bad!!
* What's your favorite band or artist?
I love country, and my favorite group of all time is Brooks and Dunn- I have seen them 3 times in concert and can not wait to get to go again!!
* What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
I am not sure, I eat normal foods- never have tried anything too weird- my favorite snack throughout my last pregnancy was bread with cream cheese and olives!

What are your hobbies?
Photography, karate- I'm a red belt- 9 mos or so untill I get my black belt. Art of all sorts (painting, drawing, pottery, etc), playing with the kiddos... I don't have a ton of time for other things- oh and READING... I Love to stick my nose in a book and get lost for a bit.
* What's the worst thing you did as a kid?
well, I was a little wild my early teen years... I took off with a friend and drove around Binghamton at all hours of the night with some boys we hardly knew- that one's the one that when I think of it still, it makes me queasy... it could have been really bad.
* What's your favorite band or artist?
I love country, but it gets old- my Husband has gotten me into harder rock, and SOME of the newer stuff I like. I'm all over the map with my music.
* What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
I love seafood, and I eat calamari often. I also eat mucsles and clams. Escargot is good if done right. It's not all that wierd though. The opportunity hasn't presented itself to be really offbeat with my food choices. I will probably never eat fish eggs though.

What are your hobbies?
---SCRAPBOOKING, reading, SCRAPBOOKING, travel, SCRAPBOOKING, watching my DD play softball, and if I didn't mention it...SCRAPBOOKING. Also, watching reality TV (I admit it), animals (small zoo at my house), and being outside.

* What's the worst thing you did as a kid?
OMG, there are so many...not one really sticks out. Probably the most were the sneaking out and making the Mill Hill run with some Boones Farm (we thought we were so cool).

* What's your favorite band or artist?
I pretty much like anything. I love country music especially Kenny Chesney. I have seen him in concert quite a few times. Of course, DD and her friends make me listen to that stuff you can make the words out to when they are with me in the car (can't have country on while the windows are down that would be embarrassing to them). OMG, did I just say that...I'm turning into my grandmother.

* What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
I'm not adventurous at all. If I don't know what it is it doesn't go into the mouth. Now, if I could just to do that with the rest of the food I like I might stand a chance at this weight-loss thing.

* What are your hobbies?
---reading, movies, laughing, live comedy, anything outdoors, walking, hiking, concerts, cards, dogs, scrapbooking, road trips, daydreaming, tae bo... or anything else - i love doing new things!

* What's the worst thing you did as a kid?
---hmm... one time me and 2 of my friends all said we were staying over at each others houses but really we spent the night outside the ARENA waiting in line for concert tickets which was really silly since it's not like it sold out or anything and they were just general admission tickets, but the experience was fun anyways! i was about 16.. i told my mom later and didn't get in trouble but one of the other girls did...

* What's your favorite band or artist?
---ac/dc all time favorite band, also love a bunch of others ranging from the grateful dead to rage against the machine to sublime to arlo guthrie to daft punk to garth brooks and pretty much almost anything in between! rock, punk, metal, pop, folk, country, techno, classical.. a little bit of all types

* What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
---i love trying new food.. most people think squid is weird but i love it and i've had raw clams, various weird produce items like kumquats!, baby food puffs thanks to shannon (haha), shark.. i don't know ~ I'll try most anything!

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

You shall not try to relive yesterday for good or ill, it is forever gone. Concentrate on what is happening in your life and be happy now!

Hobbies: SOFTBALL - definately #1, volleyball and my dogs

Worse thing as a kid: left school grounds at lunch - and yes - got caught. (sorry - typical boring "good kid") LOL

Band/Artist: Most anything country

Worst thing eaten: my husband is from Laos and we had a chance to go there last year for 2 1/2 weeks. WOW!! what an eye opener. But anyway - he has introduced SO MUCH to me but I am a very picky eater so I will not try EVERYTHING but I have tried: squid, raw clams, and things that are VERY hot & spicy. I Love the hot & spicy part - he makes a sauce that is INCREDIBLE!!

It was great to hear all of your posts - emoticon

* What are your hobbies?
I enjoy many different types of art, ceramics and pottery, drawing, printmaking, and photography. I am starting to do a little more hiking, I really enjoy being outside.

* What's the worst thing you did as a kid?
When I was about 16 I slipped out of my friends house to go to my boyfriends house, and the icing on the cake... I got caught! yikes!

* What's your favorite band or artist?
Um I don't think I really have a favorite. I like pretty much anything, classic rock and lots of new stuff. As long as it's not screaming music I'm ok with it.

* What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?

Probably some dare to eat something that my friends put together, I vaguely remember something about broccoli, molasses and lemon??

* What are your hobbies?
It seems I don't have time for much right now, but I love hiking, playing video games, cooking, reading, and going to concerts.

* What's the worst thing you did as a kid?
When I was little I stole a sample bottle of shampoo from a store at the mall.

* What's your favorite band or artist?
I have too many favorites. Dave Matthews Band is my #1, and U2 and REM would probably round out my top 3, depending on the week.

* What is the weirdest thing you've ever eaten?
I had black liquorice ice cream a few years ago. It was delicious! Only problem was it left the entire inside of my mouth - including my teeth - completely black for hours. Yikes!
