Hi Carol:

That's too funny - I'm exactly the opposite from you. When I was a kid, we lived in Wales and visited my nana (on Dad's side) in Liverpool every weekend. I still have family in Liverpool - stayed with them for a while last spring. It certainly has changed for the better from my childhood memories.

Hi everyone!
I just found out about this team today whilst exploring SP teams!
I'm from Liverpool but my Granny on Dads side was from Wales. We went to Wales often and I absolutely love the place!
God bless Wales!

Hi folks!

I gave up on my old profile (silverandante) because a) I can't seem to figure out the password after a hiatus and it won't send me a reset link and b) this is a brand new start, so brand new account! I'm near Knighton in Powys, and plan to make most of my calories burned come from walking/hiking and horse riding. So far (since Wednesday), my husband is even managing to eat relatively healthily too - at least he hasn't complained at the lack of unhealthy food in the fridge! Fortunately it's a bit of a palaver to go to the shops where we live so as long as I don't buy the unhealthy food, it makes it easier to stay on track.

Yay for Welsh Sparkies (and, personally, living in the middle of relatively nowhere)!

Hello fellow welsh sparkers!
I am Kathryn and I live in Carmarthenshire - near Llandeilo - on a nice little farm in the middle of nowhere. Fantastic to be part of a more local team.
Keep sparking everyone!

Hi everyone, I'm Angie and I'm originally from The United States, from North Carolina. I've been living in Wales for just over a year now and I am here to settle permanently with my husband. I live about 20 miles from Rhyl in the western part of Wales. I love it here and am excited to see that Wales does have a spark team :D

Well hello! I've just stumbled upon SP and this is my first post since registering. I live in the Cynon Valley approx 20 miles from Cardiff. It's great to be linking in with fellow Welshmen (and women!). I'll try not to make a nuisance of myself - thanks for having me!

Fed up of being too fat to function ....

Hello all:

After an "accident of geography" saw me born in Canada, I spent several years of my childhood in North Wales (Conwy Valley). I ended up marrying a lovely Canadian man; but no matter how long I live here, I'll always be Welsh right down to my bones.

I hadn't been back home for many years, but went back a couple of months ago for one of my favorite uncles' funeral. It was like I'd been gone for a longish holiday. Now, the hiraeth that I thought I'd overcome is back in force.

I've been with SparkPeople for a bit more than a year now, and I credit it with the over 30 lbs (over 2 stone) I've lost so far. I'm so glad I was able to find this team. Looking forward to making new Welsh friends.

Marg

Hi everyone! I'm Sarah, I'm from the West Midlands but I've spent 10 years in Arizona - I'm now back in the UK as of January, settled near Knighton, Powys. I'm absolutely loving it here - the people around here are lovely. I'm lucky enough to be living on a farm that has Offa's Dyke adjoining it, so I can walk for miles and miles in gorgeous scenery without having to drive to get there. It really is idyllic! Anyway so I thought that since I'm back in the UK, and this time in Wales, I'd join a Welsh SparkTeam - here I am. :)

Hey fellow welshies..

Im from south Wales and Im nearly 24 years old.. Been with my fiance for six years now and we have two little ones. Our daughter is 2 and a half and our son is nearly 15 months old. Yes, theres only 14 months between them which is the exact reason im here lol.. My youngest is now 15 months old, which means the excuses need to stop now and I need to shift this baby weight once and for all.

Pre-preg I was always petite and very fit and that is my goal. I want too achieve it by the new year.. x

Hi, I'm from North Wales, I've lived here since I was very young and don't want to move, I love it here! I'm so pleased to have found Sparkpeople. I joined a week ago as I put on quite a lot of weight during an illness. Also I'm a chocoholic and can't leave the chocolate and biscuits alone during the evening. That said, things have improved in the last week, I really think this site is helping. I just thought I'd explore the site some more.... It's good to find the welsh represented on here.

Hello Welsh Sparks, my name is Barbara, but I prefer to be called Babs. I am 61 and have lived in North Wales for just under 2 years. I love this country and always have, my Husband Pete and I promised ourselves when we married that as soon as we could we would move here to live - 22 years later, we made it.
Last week my world was turned upside down, when I found out why I had been feeling sooo rough, for sooo long, and having dizzy, weak atttacks - a few of which had actually caused me to pass out - u guessed it, I was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes.
When the Dr told me the results of my blood tests, and sent me to the local hospital for a GTT, I already knew the result in my heart - I have been carrying too much weight for years, eating a rubbish diet really, and considering we moved here to lead a healthier life - I;m not what you would call energetic.
So this is me - due to see the Diabetic Nurse on Wednesday and TERRIFIED. I was lucky enough to find the SparkPeople website, and have spent the last few days finding my way around, making contact and setting up my page and a blog.
I hope to make some Welsh Sparks friends - I have found some lovely people on other Forums already, but ideally some friends who live more local to me would be good.
Hope to make contact soon,
Bye for now - Babs. emoticon

Hi

I'm Julie

Moved away from Wales in 2006. Don't get as homesick as I used to!

I'm spinning mad - it's getting me out of a horrible illness I've had the last 3 months.

Look forward to getting to know you all

I lived in Bridgend in the early 90,s. Trimsaren comes under Kidwelly. We lived in front of the castle when we first moved up. Love the coastal path too. Give a shout when you are near here and we can go for coffee, emoticon

Thanks Pat, I need all the luck I can get! My running is... well, it's interesting, but I'm getting on with it. At some point it'll get better I'm sure.

I was born in Bridgend (urgh, terrible place), travelled around a bit and now I'm back in Cardiff. It's a lovely little city and just right for now. Trimsaren sounds nice though, not too far from Kidwelly Castle and the coastal path - I love wandering about there.

welcome Ez, glad to have you aboard. You must be in or near Cardiff if you are running in Bute Park. My husband was a Cardiff boy, I converted him to Trimsaren three years ago. We visit the kids and grandkids in Cardiff when we can. Good luck with your run emoticon emoticon

Shwmae folks,

Great to find a Welsh team here for support and advice. I need all the motivation I can get! I'm hoping to run the 5k around Bute Park next Saturday, well... I say run, I mean huff and puff myself around the course at a pace slightly faster than a walk!

All the best,

Ez

Hi, I'm Miriam. I'm actually re-joining this team. I dropped out of Sparkpeople awhile ago because my computer was so s-l-o-w and navigating around took forever! But now with the help of my new pc, I'm speeding through the site!

I do not live in Wales, nor have I ever been, but my mother's parents came to America from Cardiff and Swansea with their families way back in 1912. I'm second-generation American with the benefit of knowing my grandmother and a few of her siblings. I got to hear their stories of home and inherited the pride of being associated with the rich culture of Wales.

Looking forward to getting to know you.

I am delighted to find this site. I am living in south Texas, but my grandparents all emigrated to western Canada. My Dad's parents were born and raised in Corwen in north Wales. My grandfather went to Canada, then sent for his sweetheart two years later. They were married in Canada and named their first-born son Berwyn. My mother's Dad was from Monmouth, I think (yes, he was a coal miner). I will have to find out where my maternal grandmother was from.

Dad and I motored around Wales in 1991, visiting relatives. We received a warm welcome and I have such good memories of the trip.

I was born and raised in Canada, but I moved to Texas about 30 years ago. As a child, I could say the full name of Llanfair PG, but I sure can't now.

hey, It is nice to find a Welsh group on here, makes you feel safe amongst the Americans lol, I've found that sparks does take a little getting used to but it's worth it to keep on track of your food and exercise, I've never used anything like this before either, but I'm finding it really beneficial, keep at it :)

Hi, it does, but I'm learning to live with it - it seems to be either that or give in and I'm not going to do that! I do have meds that I take and am learning how to tailor what I take and when to make it as good as possible.

I spent 4 years blaming RA for my weight, and it was true but it didn't make me any thinner so I've now got my head round that I'm starting to make a difference in my weight and in how I feel about myself.

Life is good
Hope that's so for you too

Thanks Doreen,

Like you I was really pleased I hadn't put weight on, though it did fluctuate as ever but only a couple of pounds up or down.

I'm hoping once I get my Spark areas sorted out and go back to using the tracker I'll be able to lose some more, I find it really hard when exercise really is a pain, seen my specialist and was told that if the pain doesn't subside to 'normal' levels by 30 mins after exercise then I overdid it, so trying for that now.

Hi welcome - or welcome back, whichever. I live near Machynlleth, not a million miles away. Not putting on weight is usually a result. It would be for me anyway.

Think not. Do.

Hi everyone,

I live in N Wales, Old Colwyn, and may have introduced myself already, had a time away, lots of life butting in, but - didn't - put on any weight!! Anyway able to come back to post and lose some more again.

I've got arthritis and can't work any more - was really sad about that but now don't miss the deadlines and worry associated with it at all and enjoy my garden and time with the family - parents, children and one grandchild, 2 more on the way.

Take care all

Hi all, I'm Heather and I just joined.
I've been on a lot of forums but this one has to be the most confusing lol, there are so many different groups, forums and stuff so I'm sorry if I ever post the wrong thing anywhere.
Anyway I'm currently living just outside Swansea. I was born in Cardiff and lived there for 24 years until I moved to Barry. I then moved here 3 years ago to be with my now husband (we got married in June last year) Hoping to meet some nice and friendly people to chat with while trying to get myself fit. Anything you want to know, feel free to ask :)

Hello!

I just want to start off by saying I am not Welsh. However, my husband is and I lived there for over 6 years (Pontypridd and Cardiff) and miss it terribly! We moved to the US about 3 years ago.

Morning, everyone! I'm Steph and I've been with Sparks for longer than I care to remember! We used to have a fab group of us Taffs, but when things got changed around, we all lost touch. Unfortunately, I then lost heart, and have slapped a load of weight on. But I'M BACK!!!The plan is to get this weekend out of the way, and then knuckle down to it on Monday. Hope there's always someone here, as I'm usually on most evenings. Hope to talk soon! love Steph x

Keep smiling! Keep trying! We WILL get there!

I took a few civil engineering courses and then a course on British politics and culture from 1960-present and one that studied the history of the UK/Ireland.. They were really fun (as far as classes can go!) and interesting.

Hi! I've been on spark people for a while, but finally had the bright idea to look for a Welsh group! I've lived in the US for most of my life except for when I made one of the best decisions of my life to study abroad at the Uni of Wales - Swansea! I had a great 6 months living there and miss it all the time.. Glad to meet all of you emoticon emoticon

Hello! I hope you don't mind an American joining your Welsh team. My grandparents came to America in the early 1900s so I'm a second generation American with roots in Swansea and Cardiff. I remember my grandmother speaking Welsh to her friends so I wouldn't understand what they were saying. She and her friends attended a Welsh Presbyterian church in Detroit where they were members of the choir and participated in all the social functions. My mom and dad were married in that church.

My grandmother left me with very fond stories of Wales and a beautiful family Bible written in the Welsh language.

I started to do a little genealogy work but really ran into difficulties trying to find the right David Davies, William Davies, John Richards or any of the other names listed in that Bible.

So Hi. I'm new here.
