Welcome to the group. I am a bit behind on these messages emoticon . Start out slowly, I would walk before I tried anything else.

hello everyone, I'm a 46 year old in Corvallis with 50+ pounds to lose.

a few years ago i was running 5 miles but had to quit due to injury and pneumonia and I haven't gotten back into it again. I've decided to focus on diet primarily this time and then exercise as an add-on instead of the other way around.

this is my first day here and I'm full of optimism.
:)

If anyone want to start running or do regular dog walks or hikes let me know, i'm totally game

start every to do list with "write a to do list" that way you get to cross something off immediately

So sorry to hear about your kitty. I have two very spoiled cats and one fat, spoiled dog. Welcome to our group. Keep looking up, things will get better for you soon.

I used to belong to Sparkpeople many years ago and have just rejoined in the hopes of getting back on track. I am currently unemployed and staying in my parents' guest room while I look for a job (it's been 4 months so far) and have been feeling even more down on myself than usual. On top of that, my beloved kitty, Disney, passed away unexpectedly a month ago. She was only 8. My mother doesn't like cats, so Disney was staying at my brother's house. Her brother Cheshire is still there and I am able to visit him every other week for a couple of days. My cats are incredibly important to me, so not having them with me has added an extra layer to everything that I have been dealing with. I am hopeful that I will be able to turn things around now and start moving in a positive direction again.

Hello, all. I was born here, as were several generations before me, but I moved away for 40 years almost. I have returned to be with family.

The move was hard, the economy and change, and leaving so many friends. I gained weight and attempted to lose it, but never kept it off more than a few months. This time I intend to keep it off.

Hello, I am in Grants Pass Oregon, grew up here, and have moved all over when my hubby was in the Navy. We are back here in Grants Pass now that he retired from the Navy 2 years ago. I am wanting to lose 18 to 20 pounds, and am turning 42 next month. I have a 13 year old son who is in cross country running, wrestling and baseball, and is taller than me!
I had knee surgery to trim a torn meniscus back in December, and am trying to get back into working out. I was on light duty at my job for 8 months because of it.
We are also trying to eat more healthy, and maybe more clean eating. :)

Good morning, everyone! Mish from Florence. I've only been in Oregon for the last 3-and-a-half years, but love the climate and coastal living. I'm currently a caregiver and in my down time I play video games and collect vintage dolls. I have 50 pounds to lose. I was a member of SparkPeople years ago and just rejoined last Friday. Love the friendly people and atmosphere here and in Oregon.

Hello everyone, I just joined SP after 3 weeks of changing my eating habits on my own. I lost 4 pounds in 3 weeks, but I'm look for some advice on starting to walk. I don't walk at all right now. Thanks in advance, Julie

I have started walking! I'm up to 20 minutes a day now. Looking for walking partners in Klamath Falls.

Hello everyone! My name is Darlene, I am in the adventure of my life. This time I am on a journey to get to know and love myself. It has been a few years since I have logged in to Sparks, my goal is to log in everyday to get the support I need to reach my goals. I have never lived alone in my life however, since December 5th I have been divorced, it is now just my dog and myself. I live in a RV park on the South Umpqua River and I love it! It would be nice to find someone who lives close to me to walk and talk with. I am 53 years old and in the need of losing 62 more lbs, I have lost 27 lbs in the past months due to my personal issues. It was not the best way to lose weight, but at least I lost some, I am looking at it in a positive manner. This is another goal, to be positive as much as possible. No more negativity in my life, last year was enough to last a lifetime. There is a new me and I hope everyone likes her.

emoticon As I look in the mirror each day I see a new woman!

Life is what you make it, so make it the best!

I have a kitty named Milton who I rescued from someone's backyard. And I've lived in the same house for 39 years now, since I was two. I used to visit my grandparents every summer in Eastern Oregon. I really miss those wide open skies and seeing the beautiful mountains all the time. Now I'm always boxed in in the city.

Hi fellow Oregonians. My name is Ranelle, I'm 58, been married to my best friend for 36 years, have 3 children, 7 grandchildren, 3 furry grandchildren, and I live in Springfield, just minutes from Autzen Stadium...Go Ducks!
An Army BRAT growing up, so I'm not originally "from" Oregon, but in the mid 70's my dad decided to retire us in the little town of Cottage Grove about 25 minutes south of here.
My husband and 3 children moved to Springfield in the late 90's where we have resided in the same house now for about 18 years. Totally different from my nomadic childhood!!
I started on the SparkPeople weight loss journey in Oct 2010, hit goal in 2011, and here I am again after a rough patch in the road. Its all a learning experience for sure!

Greetings, fellow Earthlings! emoticon

I am living in Portland, and I'm 41 years young. I just started leading the SparkPortland team. Please visit if you're from there and post on the threads! I love to do a lot of walking when the weather is warm, been doing it inside in the meantime. My health isn't so great, so I don't work. I love to read and watch movies and programs on Netflix. And I play some facebook games.

I also have an eReader, and post free books for the Nook on a page on facebook. You don't have to have a Nook though! You can use a free app. Here's the link for the page:

Been living in the Portlandia area since August from Columbia, MIssouri via Seattle for 9 months. Love it here. Been on Spark since 2008, back on the weight loss bandwagon after regaining half of the weight I lost.

Oregon rocks my socks... and so does running!

Hi, i'm ToadJinjoo (you can call me either part of the handle, they're both accurate -- spiritually, anyway);

I have recently moved to Oregon from Washington and other points Far Eastern and Midwestern and even American Southern. Don't fit anywhere, but fit best so far here. emoticon

I am working to incorporate more 'quiet time' in my day as well as more 'doing time.' I've been through the wringer, so learning how to DO THINGS is really important to me.

So here I am, emoticon and ready to ROLL!

Also, I live in Corvallis and would really like a walk in the woods (if there are any nearby) buddy. emoticon

Today, RIGHT NOW, is where change happens. RIGHT NOW.

Just introducing myself! I've been on a weightless, self re-discovery mission since January. I have lost 60 pounds and 100 inches since Jan. of this year. I hope to lose another 30-40 pounds and reach my goal weight, or size, which ever I get to first. I don't mind the number on the scale so much anymore, so long as it stays a smaller number than my husbands! LOL I much prefer to rely on my measurements for proof of my efforts. That being said, I'm looking for a little extra accountability and motivation to keep moving forward. It's easy to get comfortable in a new weight range.. I do not want to stay in it long :o)

Starting again!! I've introduced myself before (but it's probably been a couple of years since I was last on here emoticon ). Mom of 4 (17g,13b,11b,8b), live just outside of Eugene. Looking forward to getting back into the swing of getting healthy.

Hi I'm a new member. I decided it was time to get back to a healthy life. Recently I have been seeing what being over weight can do. My parents are having medical problems due to being over weight. I know the only way to stay on the journey is through group support! I live in Medford.

Hi everyone,

I realized when I came back to SP last month I didn't check in with all of the teams I had joined. So here I am. Hope everyone is having a fantastic St. Paddy's day. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I have been on SP since 2011 off and on. This time I'm working really hard to stick to "On". I am finding that getting active on the site helps drive my commitment away from it. I have taken on a few different team challenges and even taken on leadership of the Portland Trail Blazer team.

Wishing everyone the very best luck along your journey.

I hit send way too soon lol. Look at some of the recipes on Spark People, and you will find great healthy ideas for supper, lunch or breakfast. I love them as they give a breakdown on what you are consuming. I do kickboxing, and I walk for exercise. Walking is really good for me as it hurts too much to run anymore.

Hello from Medford. I'm 53 and on my way to getting rid of the remaining 50-60 lbs I'm over.

I am taking great strides in doing for me (for the first time in my life) as I have always been the servant and thought of others before myself -- to the detriment of my own well being sometimes. I've got the exercise portion down and under control (I'm a PODRUNNER) . Got the calories and monitoring down and under control -- but how in the world do I keep carbs/fiber down and protein/calcium/fat up... if it no one thing its another LOL 8) Did I mention I love food and trying NEW things? This week its upping the CALCIUM and lowering the SODIUM (which is in my MILK but not in my orange juice -- GO FIGURE!)!

I have no known serious health issues (other than obesity) but old injuries cause me to do more running indoors on a trampoline than outdoors (where I'd rather be). I manage to make my area quite serene with "the grandkid's starbug something or other" for atmosphere as I run in the night 8)

My DH is skinny as a rail and lives mostly on sugar/carbs/fat unless I'm forcing him to eat healthy. I watch him eat and I gain. I work out behind the couch while he sits on it to watch his latest shows or play a video game -- can ya see where I'm coming from 8)

I like to craft - mostly with any type of thread or yarn and with anything that might inspire the grandchildren. I'm young at heart (only 5 on the inside) and pretty positive most of the time -- I work a stressful job so every now and then I have to step up on the positive but I always bounce back to happy pretty fast. The crafts are mostly a side line to keep the stress in check -- I can't focus on CRAP when I'm focused on CRAFTS!!!!

If your interested in sharing successes, sorrows, laughter. etc. let me know. I'd love to hear from you.

I look forward to being a positive and productive member of the team....

TTFN
(TA TA FOR NOW for those that aren't POOH fans 8)


Slow and steady wins the race!

Welcome Steph hope we can help you on your journey. Lots of water is the key to getting rid of the soda habit. Besides, pop makes you hungry, it actually stimulates your appetite. Nasty stuff and it causes kidney stones.

I stop at 5 cups of coffee instead of more. Drinking water more made soda not as tempting. When I was hydrated soda pop was not as tempting.

Wow that must have been super hard, But Good for you making healthy choices is hard sometimes when your use to the bad stuff for you lol...breaking the coffee habit was super hard for me as well, but it was giving me to many headaches so it had to go. Now if i could only stop drinking soda all together then i would be good to go LOL! :)

It took me a while to cut bad liquid , more than 5cups of coffee . Alcohol 5 a week instead of 2.
Sugar in tea bothers me now.
