I live in Blackfalds, AB and work FT in Red Deer. I've been on SparkPeople since 2013(I think) looking for some motivation from my neighbours. Good luck everyone.

Hi everyone...I'm Trisha and I'm from Nobleford. I just found this Alberta team and am hoping to find some local friends who I can get to know and develop a friendship with. My current goal is to run my first 5K. I'm 60 and haven't done any running since high school.

I thought I'd let all Alberta members know about this 5K run in Rosedale Alberta.
www.burstofcolorrun.com is the site I got the information from.
Join me this July for the 3rd Annual Burst of Color Run on Saturday July 26, 2014 at 10am at Centennial Park in Rosemary, Alberta just east of Drumheller.
Early-bird Registration opens April 1. April 1 to May 31 ...
If you are interested in attending I would love to hear from you and even if running is not your thing and would like to make a new friend come drop by my SP and tell me about yourself.

To me HEALTH means Energy. Stamina. Flexibilty. A relatively pain free body. Enjoying healthy food. You are your body, and your weight loss efforts will succeed exactly to the extent that you mange to do the work on behalf of your embodied self. You’ll do much better when you focus on making positive changes to improve your health and well-being, rather than on fighting your bad habits.

Thanks for the tips, it is definitely something I am willing to try. I do try to limit the obvious carbs, but this is one of my Bad habits. I have always been a bit of a Carb Junky, so this one is hard for me to break.

JESTERJAG,

I can relate to your story. I used to be very light, as well, until I came to Canada, in my mid-thirties. That's when my weight went totally out of control. Fortunately, I have been able to lose some of it again, but I am still not where I would like to be.

For me, going low-carb made a huge difference, not only in terms of weight loss (almost 60 pounds in just over 4 months), but also in terms of way more energy, way less sluggishness, and a much more positive outlook on life.

Since my husband has Type 2 diabetes, which he now controls very well through what he eats, we are a bit extreme when it comes to low-carbing: no starches or refined sugars, very little fruit, but lots of vegetables, and a decent amount of protein and healthy fats.

Since you only have comparatively little weight to lose, you don't need to go as far as we did to see benefits quickly. You could start by cutting out the obvious carbs, like white flour and refined sugar, and cut back on processed foods, in general.

If this is a direction you are interested in exploring, I can send you an invitation to a Spark team with a low-carb focus.

It's your journey, you are the captain!

Highest weight ever: 220 pounds. Followed the IP protocol from June to December 2012 and lost 58 pounds.

In Maintenance mode since January 2013. Have been able to maintain a lot of my weight loss, but regained about 20 pounds over 2 years

Time to take another run at "reducing"

Thanks for the encouragement, even a little weight seems very daunting to me ...

I spent Most of My life VERY UNDER weight - topped out around 105 pounds normally (and 9 months pregnant with my first I was a wopping 138 pounds) at 5'7" - and never had to worry about what I ate because I just could NOT gain weight. They even sent me to Dieticians and nothing worked. Then when I was 35 I was diagnosed with a Tumor in my chest that had been there since my teens - which they quickly and efficiently removed with no bad side effects. Well there was one BIG side effect, in the 2 months after they removed it I gained 35 pounds and went up to 152lbs. Having never had to worry about what I ate, I had developed some bad eating habits and NO fitness habits. So Losing the weight became very challenging as I had no idea how.

Since then I have lost some of the weight, but ideally would like to drop another 8 pounds or so.

I am still trying to break some of those nasty habits - so that is a big one for me, learning to eat better and make better choices. Mostly I want to feel better, because of the Habits (or lack thereof) I have developed over my lifetime I lack energy and feel sluggish a lot of times. I need to tone a few areas and lose a few pounds, but more important to me is developing NEW, Healthy Habits that will help me stay healthy for many years to come.

Thanks for your question, it really made me think hard about what I want to accomplish.

JESTERJAG,

what are you hoping for, in terms getting healthier? It doesn't look like you have much of a weight problem. So, is it healthy eating and physical fitness you are after?

VANILLA,

great suggestion. I'll try the reward approach. Since the grandkids aren't at our house for entire days, I'll probably hand out gold stars for each serving of fruit/veggie eaten, and then reward them when they have earned a certain number of stars.

Fortunately, junk food isn't a big problem. My husband and I are eating very low-carb. So, there really isn't much junk food in the house the grandkids could feast on, except for occasional planned treats, and their mom is very good at limiting what she buys.

The main issue really is to get the starch eaters to get more vitamins, and the veggie eaters to get more protein.....

What I found worked best when they were little was to let them have small rewards if they ate their daily Canada Food Guide worth of fruits and veggies. Now that they are older I simply don't buy junk food so if they want to eat it , THEY have to buy it with their own money. They don't eat nearly as much crap now compared to what they did when it was at their disposal and free ( for them) lol

What if the Hokey Pokey is REALLY what it's all about?? LOL

I am from Edmonton, too. Just moved from the east end to the west end of town so that we can be more involved on a daily basis with our grandkids. Swimming at the YMCA is becoming one of our favorite activities.

One of my main concerns right now is how to feed kids under 10 healthily, so that they don't have to tackle a difficult weight-loss journey, later in life. My husband and I follow a strict low-carb protocol, but this is not something we want to necessarily impose on the children.

I would like to find ways to introduce more vegetables and fruit into their meals, and with the two older ones this is a real challenge. The little ones, on the other hand, are all into veggies and fruit, don't eat much starch, but also don't like meat.....

Any ideas from other parents or grandparents would be most welcome!

Hello I live in Grande Prairie as well. My name is Stacey, looking to commit more to fitness and health.
I usually like to mix up my workouts; Zumba, walking track, swimming, snow shoeing. Fairly new to Grande Prairie, my youngest daughter is 18 and I work full time, so most workouts are in the evening and weekends.
I work with Government of Alberta which requires travel, so not able to be a consistent work out buddy.
If you would like to join me in a work out or you need a buddy let me know.
Stacey

Hi :) I live east of Fort Saskatchewan, just joined Spark and looking for like minded people to go on this journey with. Also just started a weight loss group (not sure if i can say the name on here) last week. I'm 55 years old and am not putting this off for another year to slip by. I enjoy gardening, horseback riding and riding my motorbike.

Welcome.. my best advice is pick an activity you enjoy doing, and see yourself doing daily.
Go slow, jumping in doing a 4 mile run or walk or hour long swim is great, but only when your body is used to it. Do something for 5 minutes today, and do that again tomorrow and every single day this week. Next Monday add to that 5 minutes 2.5 minutes more, and again do it every single day in week 2, week three again add in 2.5 minutes so now your doing 10 minutes. Keep adding in 5 minutes a week till your doing 30 minutes of hard exercise or an hour of walking. I did this and lost my first 40 lbs. Just by moving, not giving up the things I loved to eat. I know try to get an hour of exercise every single day and I keep my calories at or around 2000 a day. I am glad you joined.

Hello to other fellow Albertans - My name is Linda and I am in the Red Deer area and am struggling to stay on track again and with summer holidays around the corner I am not going to feel like squeezing into any bathsuit that's for sure.

You don't drown by falling in the water. You drown by staying there (or if someone holds your head under).

Hello to all ~ I'm Edmonton born and bred. Planning on retiring to BC in a few years.

You only live once, but if you do it right, once is enough. So, care deeply, share generously, help willing, and above all, be kind...

Hi everyone!
I recently moved from Nanaimo BC to Grande Prairie AB! Big change, but really enjoying GP. Love to hear from anyone else in the area, maybe we can set up a walking group, or someting of the likes. Anyways, hope you all have fun on the site and in life :)

Hello from St. Albert!

I heard about this site from a friend and I think it's a great way to stay on track. I'm here to improve my general health and fitness after being a lazy toad for 6 years.

Hey Everyone,

I'm in Lacombe. I'm so happy the winter is over. I'm looking forward to spending more time outside (which is a new goal for me since I've never really been an outdoor person).

Hello! I'm new to the group and to Alberta. I just moved to Grande Cache last summer. This is the place to get inspired to start hiking, and that's just what happened to me. I found Sparkpeople looking for a way to get healthier and to get up into these beautiful mountains! Ever here of the Death Race? Well this is where is all happens - very inspiring!
