I live on "the Corridor", just inside Alum Creek and work in Charleston. I just signed up and started a couple of days ago. Dieting is a real struggle for at 50+ (since not as active), but I am excited about the prospects and happy to know that there are others in the area utilizing the same methodology. Misery loves company, haha!

This is my first day here. I just found this site yesterday. I am a 36 year old married mother of 2. I love my life, except for 1 thing--the weight!! I suffered a trans-ischemic or "mini" stroke at the end of July and that was also the Last day I had a cigarette. I quit smoking-but have since began eating alot more than I did before. I have gained quite a bit of weight in just 4 short months without really realizing it until I went to the Doctor for a check-up and I got on the scale!! I began to cry!! I lost my father on Mothers day of 2008. He was only 58 years old. I want to hopefully, and God blessing me, make it much longer than that. I want to be full of energy again and go through my life not just "existing", but "LIVING"!! emoticon

Hi,
Just found this team! I work at the Capitol Complex. I have lost 65 pounds. Not all on Spark people. However, I am excited about finding people who are working on losing too!!!! I have found success with Dr. J. in Crosslanes, WV. He has an excellent diet plan called Ideal Protein. I do well with the plan.

Hope to meet and find new friends.

Yes, I'm Mrs. Smith, but please call me Katy. Linda is fine, married and well. Time sure does fly---I remember when YOU started to school. Now your daughter will be there.

Best of luck as a Homeroom Mom, with PTA, and all of the Mom things. emoticon

Hello Everyone!

Happy New Year! I have been a member of Sparkpeople for almost two years and did not realize there was a Charleston group.. emoticon

I am looking forward to getting to know you and giving and receiving support. It's a brand new year and let's go! We can do this....together..

I have lost about 12 pounds but my lifestyle is so much healthier and my resolve this year is to avoid those setbacks that I keep encountering...I fall off the wagon quite often and I want to hold on a little more tightly.... emoticon

I know that it works if you eat healthy, stay within your calorie range and exercise...so I am starting a streak today. emoticon

Everyone have a great day!

Just found Charleston team and was glad to see it. I joined SP May 08 and have found great advice and encouragement there. Hope to make some local friends.
I am 35 years old, grew up in Boone County but have lived in the Charleston area for about 17 years. I am finally getting myself back into shape and feel better than I have in several years. I am still fighting to reach my goal weight.
I look forward to chatting with some of you from time to time. God Bless.

Hi! I'm glad to see a Charleston, WV, team! Although I don't live in CHarleston, I do live within a 20 minute drive. I also work in Charleston, go to church here, etc. To me, Charleston is an awesome place!

I teach 5th Grade at one of the elementary schools, and I've been a member of Spark People since July. I've sort of let myself become deterred on my weight and exercise goals since October, but I am now back on track, thanks to an assessment I made on Spark. Thankfully, I can continue working with my goals.

Thanks, Jen, for creating this team!

Hi I am a 56 year old grandmother of 7 + one more on the way in Jan 09.
I joined SP in Jun. and I have found that I really like what I have seen so far. I have been at a small stan still with my weight loss scene Sept. In the past I have given up after a long time of no weight loss, (or this yo-yo) but I have come a long way in the last year( I started my weight loss in 6/07 at 259 now at 193)and I am not going to do that this time. And I have found out that SP is helping me in keeping me going with my committed to my self with my weight loss.
I have lived in Charleston, WV for most of my life and raised my 4 kids here. I did live in TX for a few years but came back here in 2000.
I am a big pet lover, 2 dogs, 2 ferrets, 3 birds & 2 fish. lol I love to read and do a little crocheting in my spear time.
So to every one Hi, and have a good day.
Lou


This will be a very good day for me....THE FIRST DAY OF THE REST OF MY LIFE.
