"Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own" 1 Cor. 6:19
Their destiny is destruction, their god is their stomach, and their glory is in their shame. Their mind is on earthly things. Phil 3:19

Corvallis. I have three homeschooled kiddos. I run my own business and am the swim team manager.
Once I was up to 210 and got down to 160 with WW. I steady gained some back despite journalling and maintenance. I had to go back to weight loss to steady out. This is one of the ways I found out my thyroid went wacko. I am trying to get my thyroid stuff worked out.
I recently realized I am my better off without wheat. Just feels better in my belly. Exploring going paleo without being a fanatic about it. This site doesn't support this as an option so I need to take that into consideration when looking at the pie charts and other tracking.
I started here this week at 180. My goal is 160.

My name's Leila and I just moved to Eugene, OR from Maryland for grad school. I'm hoping to lose about 70 pound total, but my first big goal is to lose 30 pounds before Thanksgiving. Moving here has been great for exercising because back in Maryland it's so hot this time of year that I hardly want to move let alone workout! Here's hoping I can add a healthy lifestyle to the list of changes I've made this year.

I live in Bend Oregon for almost 3 years now. I came from Norman, Oklahoma to be with my son who moved here for his job. I have high blood presure and am a prediabetic. I have as they say 50+ pounds to lose. I really need to lose this. I love to ride my road bike or any bike, I have 2 now and love riding them. I go on walks when I can and do p90x workout too. I really don't like working out but every one else thinks I should so I do. I am artistic too. I love painting , making quilts or throws (not to big on doing a quilt bed size, I will if I have to) I am working on one for my step - daughter for her birthday. She is the best daughter anyone could have. I have been married for 37 years this year. I really doesn't seem that long. Oh and I am 64 years old.

Hello - I am new to this forum - I live in Scappoose Oregon. I am 59 years old and looking to loose a little over 50 pounds. But more than that, I am looking to find a healthy life style. I live alone in an RV - (Do not travel anymore). Since I have been discovering a healthier way of life, I have been feeling so much better in my mind and body. Since I am a lover of all foods, I rely on having a healthy mind to get me to a healthy body. I look forward to the encouragement from others on this forum and perhaps I can be an inspiration to others as well. Since I have taken up walking around my senior park, I have three other women walking with me now. My motto is "attitude is 75% of the cure".

Hi My name is Cathy and I am new to spark people. My journey here has been an exciting journey. Back in March I went to the hospital for severe headaches. Was having trouble staying hydrated and having problems with chronic pain and headaches. I thought it was just from my car accident. Well turns out that I turned into a diabetic. Type 2. When I was at the hospital I weighed my all time highest of 335. Never in my life had I been that heavy. So now I am on a variety of pills and Byetta to help with bringing everything back down. The begging of May I managed to loose 35 pounds, I was bound and determined to be under 300 when I went to see my mom. I weighed in at 298 the day I left to see my mom. Since then I have been doing everything possible to bring my life back together. I am now weighing 275-280 which is still not where I want to be but at least that is 50 plus pounds that I have already shed. I look forward to hearing from others and I will do my best to give you positive support on your journey.

I'm in Gresham. I have managed to pack on 10lbs in a little over a year and I was seeing pounds creeping up so time to get a handle on what I've been eating. Boy the bites. licks, and tastes really were adding up! I like to run, mostly short distances, 3 - 4 miles. I love cooking, gardening, partying with my close friends.

I live in SW Beaverton. I am 10 years post-Roux-en-y and trying to get back to the weight I held for 6 years. I did some stress eating and got off track ... not horribly but enough to make a difference. Now I have about 20 lbs to lose. I have arthritis so a lot of trouble with a lot of exercises. Have recently gotten back to the pool which helps a lot.

Hi and Welcome!
Sounds like you are near me... I live in Rhody. I love that we will have nice weather soon, perfect for getting out and hiking. Check out Wildwood Rec. Park (if you haven't already)- amazing place to walk with moderate paths, loops & if you are looking for a more strenuous hike look to the Bolder Ridge Trail head.
Best wishes on your Spark Journey!

I live in Eagle Point and i noticed that there are a couple of people from Medford and White City on here.. I just joined yesterday. I have fibromyalgia and some other health issues and unfortunately i am not looking for a workout buddy .. I cant Hike the table rocks or go up to Johns peak.. But what I CAN DO is workout 5 days a week at the Cascade community pool in white city. I can move quite well in that water. I cant do the things on land that i can do in there so its been great so far.. I am looking for more support and to be good support for someone else as well.. I have alot of weight to lose and its not going to happen overnight., so it will be a long friendship! LOL www.cascadecommunitypool.com

Hi. I'm new here to Sparks. My mom told me about this site. I'm not sure what to do yet. I live in White City OR. Need to lose150 lbs. But I notice the meal plan has many things I don't like to eat. So this puts me in a different place. I can't afford to buy much of the healthy foods I wish I could. But I am going to have a garden this summer and then for a short while I will have good food. I do work but like most people I live in poverty. I have a hard time getting into doing the exercise thing. And I do have a few pieces of equipment that collects dust. I feel like I'm babbling here. See ya lighter. Ray

Hello everyone. Just getting started in this wonderful web site. I live in Oakridge and am rather obese but desperately want to walk the weight off. If anyone resides in Oakridge and can be a walking buddy, I am open and available for teamwork motivation. Thanks.
Still learning this web site so not doing much as far as tracking things go yet but I will get there soon. I do not have a weight scale right now so when I go see my doctor on the 26th, I will use that weight as it is not that far off from now.

Newberg. I'm in my 40s with 4 girls between age 3 & 15. I've been an barely active member for a number of years. My mid-life plan to lose weight got waylaid by the youngest and I'm trying to get back on track. I work out at Excell when I can get there - love my zumba classes! Consistency (or the lack thereof) of anything in my life is one of my biggest hurdles.

hello everybody, i am new to this and not quite sure how it all works but i will give it a try. my husband and i just moved to oregon, between lebanon and albany, out in the country. i just love the state, it is beautiful and so are the people. i am hoping to lose some weight so i can get into shape. i usually take a walk everyday with our dog, and just recently started exercising every morning when i get up. I have ordered a tae bo workout video and i can also do that. i think the hardest part is going to be staying up with all this and eat healthier. we have a tendency to eat junk stuff. usually when i start a diet, i give up and quit. so i hope maybe this will help.
