Hey all,
I'm originally from a small town in Benson county, but moved out to Williston with my boyfriend. We had a kid, and he's almost 3, and now I'm trying to get back into shape so I can run around with him.

Hello from a small town of about 7,000 in the middle of our great State along I 94. I am a 45 year old widow with 4 school aged children... an old mom I guess.
I was on here before but could not get logged in because though I remembered my user name I did not remember my password and my email address has changed. I guess it is like starting anew. I love North Dakota where -13 below zero feels wonderful after -33 or more below. emoticon

I'm Linda from Williston. I posted on the other page, wasn't sure what I was doing! I guess it will take me a bit to figure out the forums. If anybody wants to communicate let me know. I have a lot of weight to lose and this will be a good start.

I am from Beulah. I've been with Sparks since 2006. I have lived in ND all my life. The only thing I dislike about ND...is the WIND! Other than that, our 4 seasons can be beautiful, but there sure have been some changes in the weather this last year. Winters can get tough but ND people can toughen it out.

I'm a little late, but it is an amazing facility. They have classes from yoga to cardio with different levels in between. There's a swimming area for kids and they have separate times for adults which is nice since they also offer aqua aerobics. They offer health and cooking classes which you can take as a nonmember for a fee.

Hello

I am from Grand Forks, but currently wintering in Florida.

Anyone been to the new fitness center on south Washington, is it really nice?

Can not wait to get back, hope this site is not dead, I could use some friends for support when I return, as well as support those who may need it.

Hello all!

I am currently living in Minot and hoping to lose some weight! Lately I've been really motivated to do so and I've decided that this will probably help. I currently work full time and go to school online full time with UND so it's sort of hard to find the time to actually do things that will help me lost weight and get more fit, but I'm sure going to try and make it a priority!!!

Welcome to all the newcomers! Yep, winter is nipping at our noses, wish it would hold off a month or two yet. I use my Wii or Walk Away the Pounds for indoor activities. I'd like to get another treadmill, but not sure I want to give up the space for one.

I see Newlibrarian started a new holiday fitness challenge for everybody to join. Every little bit in the right direction helps.

I'm from Casselton. Just started a couple weeks ago. I travel around the state a lot, so maybe I'll meet some of the rest of you. You can tell me the good (lo-cal) places to eat. That's my biggest challenge--keeping calories down when I'm on the road. I just spent the whole day--5:30am-8:00pm--yesterday going to Minot and back.

Hey everyone! I live on Minot Air Force Base in Minot, ND. Anyone else from Minot? Since I'm new to the area I would love for someone to suggest healthy winter activities for the cold months ahead? Anyone have tips for staying on track when it's so cold and you just want to eat carbs? I am looking forward to using this site to help lose about 50 lbs.

Hi My name is Tammy and I am from Hillsboro, ND. I am new to sparks and looking forward to being able to navigate through the sight and be able to post my accomplishments and failures we all know there will be some. My main goal is to loss 3 lbs a week for one year to loss half my body weight. So far since May 23, 2011 I have lost 23 lbs just from working again. And now i see a nutritionist and count every calorie i take in. I just bought me a scale for home here to weigh in once a week. Got it today and was i bit discouraged when I did not loss as much as I thought I should have according to last weigh in at office. But i realize i have to consider it was a different scale i was weighing on. So hopefully come Sunday morning that is the day i will weigh myself every week things will look better on scale.

I'm up on Minot AFB. Working on getting the weight off that my medicene is causing me to gain. Must do it for my own peace of mind!

Hi all! I am from Bismarck, ND and am looking for a workout/motivation buddy here in town. Message me if you are interested (only females please...I'm a married woman) in getting together sometime and getting healthy.

Hi there, I live near Petersburg, ND. I go to school and work in Grand Forks, though. Good luck reaching your goals! I sure hope I reach mine. :)
