It's so nice to meet all 3 of you. Have been to or lived in every town mentioned. Have an Aunt & Uncle in Langlois. You all have many Sparkers close by you. Some meet monthly in Albany I think it is or Lancaster Mall. Not sure which.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

Hey Marianne! Sorry to hear about your husband, but happy to hear that he is doing well now. Quite the life changes for you.

I'm a domestic violence advocate for the police department. I talk to victims of DV on scene and give them tools to help them and problem solve with them. CASA sure does great work helping foster children! Thanks for supporting them!! I have often thought of becoming a foster parent, but I don't have the space for it. Would love to find a big farm house and have kids there, but not sure if that dream will ever come to fruitation.

I have 2 children - one in college and one soon to be in college and I'm kinda dreading the "empty nest" thing. I may work for the state, but I'm really a farmer wife at heart. Love the hard work of the ground - and so does my husband. We have a Landscape maintenance business on the side and that gives me my "fix" of working the ground.

I think this Oregon SparkTeam will be a good thing for me. Over the past 2 years I have dropped about 35 pounds. I still have lots more to go - and I tend to slack off - every now and again. Maybe knowing there are others close by will keep me motivated.

Anyway - great to see all you folks here!!

Good morning! Kat from Salem. Born and raised here in Salem and lived in Springfield/Eugene and Elmira for a short time, but I came back to Salem because it was easy to get back with the State work - supporting single parenting.

I have re-married my ex and things are good and the kids were exstatic to have their dad back... now 11 years later we are still going good... lots of bumps along the way, but you can't get to the good stuff without going through the muck.

For now - this is me. Great to see an Oregon team!!

Greetings from Coos Bay on the Southern Oregon Coast!
We are having Winter with snow, sleet, rain, sun and high winds.....it cannot make up its mind as yet.

I am a Caregiver to my husband of 47 years, who had a stroke in 2002 and had his skills erased. We sold our ranch and moved here to be near his doctors and our daughter. He is pretty independent now.

I was a CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocate) for 11 years and am now on the CRB (Citizen Review Board) to keep our Foster Children moving ahead for permanent homes. I serve meals to the homeless every Wed. night with my friend, Donna. Our Bible Study Group adopted this homeless house and work there as often as possible.

Reading is my hobby and we see a lot of movies, go swimming at 7 each morning for water aerobics, walk to Walmart and Empire (each a mile away from us), and work hard to eat heart healthy.

Merry Christmas to all and I await to see if anyone lives near me. I grew up in Bandon and Langlois and love the Oregon Coast. I am a Hostess at Shore Acres State Park and it is a Winter Wonderland of lights and music. Please come and enjoy it!!

Marianne





See Ya Lighter!!

I am 59 years old and currently live on the Oregon coast in Florence. I just moved from Phoenix, AZ this September. I was a corporate wife for 24 years and have a son and daughter and one grandson who just turned one year old, David.

After a miscarriage I learned how to write and perform standup comedy. I sold jokes to Joan Rivers, other comedians, public speakers and disc jockeys. A girlfriend with breast cancer inspired me to publish a newsletter dedicated to the healing power of humor which I did for 8 years. Eventually I was interviewed on CNN Financial Network and was a speaker at the prestigious Baylor College of Medicine "Compassion and the Art of Medicine" Series.

Due to a difficult childhood I went through a lot of therapy and developed a tool kit to help me cope. In 1996 I had a profound spiritual awakening and have dedicated my life to self realization and assisting others as best I can.

I was slim until my engagement and kept gaining during the marriage and 3 pregnancies. Dieting efforts over the years always ended up with my regaining all plus more than I had reduced and changing my body composition ever more to fat rather than muscle. Like so many Spark People I have resolved, "This time it will be different...it will be the last time...it will be a lifestyle change." I have been blessed that I can now bounce back from the slip ups and continue on my daily program very well. I also am semi retired with government benefits to pay my bills, so I can stay really focused on this phase of my life (reducing from 290 to 135#). I am writing a book about all of this and using my Blog here for much of the content. I plan to be a public speaker and continue to offer support and sessions to the weight loss community. I am a Reiki master practitioner (energy work), certified hypnotherapist, I can work with EFT-Emotional Freedom Techniques, NLP Time Line Therapy, and other ways as intuitively guided to offer stress relief to people and help them to get past limiting beliefs so they can share their gifts and graces with the world.

That sums me up in the nutshell.
Warmly

All the best in slimming success. Peace of mind during body redesign.

I am in Albany and go to the gym on hill and queen . It used to be Gold's but is now fitness experience.I've enjoyed this beautiful state since moving here from the sunny southwest 9 years ago. I do have a difficult time in the winter when it is so dark and rainy but have learned to cope. My husband likes the winter while I enjoy lots of sunshine and weather over 85.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!

I live in Salem!
I was born in Pennsylvania. In 1952 we moved to Alaska ( My folks drove us up the Alaska Highway when it was pretty bad!) I graduated from high school with 10 other kids still in Alaska. I went to college in Portland. (Lewis and Clark College). After I graduated I taught school in Alaska until 1977 when I moved to Salem and taught in the Silverton area. I am now retired and just hanging out in Salem. :)

Welcome! Yup, I'm in Gresham, peeking out at Portland through my window. =)

MUSCLE DOES NOT WEIGH MORE THAN FAT 5 lbs = 5 lbs

5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!

If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!

FOOD TASTES GOOD
Let us eat it in moderation.

I love it around Timperley the country side is beautifull.
And I think that is why I like Corvallis because it is a lot like there. And it is only about 45 mins to the Oregon Coast.
I love the coast and the ocean, it is so calm and peacefull, even when it is raging.

I think it was T&R, but I've been past them so much I really can't remember which one. I do remember the booth we always sat in. The only other places in Oregon I've lived are Warm Springs, Bay City and on a farm outside of Amity. Spent a lot of time at Camp Sherman where my mother had a cabin.

Thank you Teresa. I grew up in Salem and my mom, grandmother and I went for drives after Sunday church and then to lunch. One of our regulars was a cafe in Albany right off I-5, don't remember the name, but I always had grilled cheese and a root beer milkshake. And when the wind was blowing my mother would always complain about the Albany paper mills (she wasn't a complainer by nature) never mind the one we had in Salem, Lol. Those are great memories.
