Hi,

I have been a member since 1/1/11 and I'm also tryin to do this away from the computer too. Every bit helps I say.
I live in Janesville, i'm a mother of one and work very strange hours. I am lookin for a workout buddy to go to the gym with during the day around 8 to 9 just to walk or know ya have someone else there. Motivation I guess also.
I don't have any family other than my kid so, i've been leaning on my boyfriend alot to help me stay positive on this...well, he is to much like a drill sargent. Would like someone who is going thru the samething as me to lean on to say ughh or congrats too.
I have lost 13lbs so far this year...so, I know it is going to get harder.

Hi, my name is Carie, and I've been a member since January 2010, but haven't be back here since. I have been back now since yesterday and want to really start paying attention to my goals of weight loss and fitness.

Hello all! I live in Janesville. have been on spark for quite some time. Have always been in a group with a few girls I was with in the BL club. We all switched over to here. Anyway, we did really well together until I got pregnant back in '07 I of course gained quite a bit through the pregnancy, then was stalled out for the past 2 years. The 1st of the year I got my butt back on track. I lost 15 lbs in January. I am working out every day and doing well with my eating. The other girls I've been with have also gained momentum as well. I started looking around and found this group. I had no idea this group was here! Nice to know there are others in Janesville and nearby going through this journey together. I'll definitely try to check back here often. Hope everyone had a great weekend :)

Hi!
I'm Jennie, living in Edgerton with my husband and almost 2 1/2 year old twins, Chloe and Connor. I need to get active and keep track of what I eat. I've been an inactive member on SP for awhile, hope to start being more active here.

Hi Everyone,

I have been a Sparker awhile now. I live in Janesville. I was doing real well losing the weight & working out. In 2008, I quit smoking and in 2009, I quit working out regularlly so the pounds came back. I am committing myself to starting fresh and get to a healthy weight before I turn 50.

It's not who I am underneath or even on the outside, it's what I do that defines me.

Hi Diana ~

Same here, I was telling Laura I've been feeling down, am in a slump and don't have anyone here in Edgerton to work out with, walk, or just plain talk to.
My son just turned 4 on Saturday, so it's him and I during the day, while my mom and husband are working and I don't have any adult conversation.

I do work outside of the home, but am home in the afternoons, just hanging out, eating and being bored.

Hi, my name is Janice and I have lived in Janesville the last 24 years. I was born and raised in Appleton, WI for 25 years. (you can do the math). I moved to Janesville on my husband's dairy farm when we married. I have a son (18) who will be going to school in Cleveland OH in the fall, and a daughter (15).

I love to rubber stamp, go for walks, bike riding, and I have a horse that I need to learn more about.

I have been on several weight loss programs with success, but when I stop attending, I slowing gain it back. I hope we can help each other stay motivated, reach our goals, and maintain our weight loss.

Welcome Shari ~

You are a GM-layoff, oh that stinks.
My bil was permanently laid off from Lear awhile back, but was able to find employment elsewhere thank goodness, in this economic mess.
Glad you hopped on-board and looking forward to getting to know YOU.

Tina :)

Hi! Great a group for Rock County! My name is Shari and I also live on the east side of Janesville.
I have been laid off from GM for almost a year now and the pounds slowly crept back--just in time for summer of course! So it's time to get back on track (again).

Looking forward to getting to know you all, as well.

Hi SKSCHULTE1997

Welcome to the group: SKSCHULTE1997

Yes I know where Monroe is, I've been there a few times at least but not recently.

Wow, you are moving to TN, not so close to WI then?

But that's alright, stay if you still want motivation, chat, etc.

Glad to have you here, look forward to knowing you better!

Tina :)

I do not live in Rock County but close. I live in Green. Half my extended family lives in Rock though. In Janesville, Evansville and Milton. I live over by Monroe. I love to be from a small town where everyone is so friendly and talks to you in the grocery store. I am getting ready to move soon though to Clarksville TN. My husband is Active Duty Army and is getting stationed at Ft. Campbell. I am always back in Wisconsin for the summer though!!! emoticon

Hello Christy Lee ~
Great meeting you, so glad you found us here.
I've been looking for ways to spread the word but I personally don't know tons of people, so I've just been asking people on here to help.
I am not familiar with Twitter....anyone else here?
I've just been recently updating my facebook.
I guess I'm behind on all these things. ;)
Great to see a new face and once again: Welcome!

Cool! A group for JVL.

My name is Christy Lee, and I'm a Rock County transplant. I grew up in the military (Army brat) but both of my parents were born in Wisconsin.

I moved to Milton about 4 years ago from Green Bay (and yes, I am a Packer Backer!).

In January I was laid off from my job as a Chemist, but I knew it was coming for a long time...since about 2006. So it wasn't a complete surprise like so many people in this area are facing now. I feel really lucky.

I started with Spark to lose some extra pounds I put on after I quit smoking. I'm still a quitter, but I've gained about 35 lbs. So I'm kind of re-starting my commitment to Spark and soooo glad I found this team through Spark Wisconsin.

Hi REENIEV13 ~

Great meeting you!

I used to be a member of the Y but recently canceled, it wasn't working.

Now I'm going to try a gym here in Edgerton and also walk with others when I can.

Hope you stay around, can't wait to learn more about you.

Tina :)

Hi all,

I'm a 35yo mother of one beautiful 18 month old daughter. I was born and raised in Janesville but then moved away for college and the years after, but our family just moved back last November.

Like most of the people out here I've been on the weight loss roller coaster for much of my adult life and I'd like to finally get control of it and lost the unwanted extra pounds.

I'm not new to SP but I just found this team and would love to meet more people in the area for support and motivation.

Good luck to everyone!

Hi Everyone!

I am Angie. I live in Milton with my Husband and 3 kids. 2 boys and girl (23, 12 & 10) I do everything backwards. I have been working out for almost 3 months now 4-6 days a week. I know exactly what I need to do however, I lack the real motivation to really change my eating habits permanently. I need to lose about 75-100 lbs. That is why I am here.

You already have all the answers, you just have to ask the right questions.

My name is Tina, happily married and we have a 3 1/2 year old son and live in Edgerton.

I'm looking for weight-loss buddies; someone to go walking with, motivation, chat and have some fun with if anyone else is interested.

I am a mother of 4 teenagers. 2 in college and 2 in high school. My husband is the greatest person on earth and I know he loves me "unconditionally". I am working on loving myself inside and outside. I joined SparkPeople a month ago. I have lost weight every week but in small increments. I have been eating healthy but not exercising. I use the excuse of time and money. That was the motivation to start this team.
