Hi Welcome to the team and to diving. Both are addictive. It sounds like you are a Hawaii fan, we are in love with Kauai and also found Maui amazing. I am not much of a runner, I had to do it for the army, but I do like to lift. Hope to see you in the lounge Jen
Welcome, Scott! We love having new people join our group! Please drop in to the Narced Lounge where we usually do our chit-chatting. We're a pretty laid back group, and love to talk about our dives and trips!
I am a person of infinite possibilities and dreams.
My wife and I are very new to the diving scene. We were just certified in Nov. In Maui. We did one of those resort dives just for kicks, enjoyed it so much we had to get certified. We only have 11 dives under our belts for 2010. While we love living in the Canadian arctic ( Yellowknife, NWT) it does curtail our diving for a good part of the year. But it does give us one more reason to go on those mid winter trips. I look forward to reading about your diving experiences picking up tips and favorite dive location. As for Sparkpeople. I have always been a big guy, very active, but big. I stopped weighing myself when I topped 300lbs over 30 years ago. I dropped 50lbs by myself and kept it off for years. I even ran a 4 hour marathon at 250-260lbs. Then I wanted to go zip lining in Maui a couple of years ago and they had a weight restriction of 240lbs. My wife had joined SP and was very successful, so I joined as well. Went zip lining with 10lbs to spare. I really liked my results and now that I am 50 I am more aware of aches and pains. I started SP with a goal of 240, then 230 and now I am shooting for 199. That will be a stretch as I am as I said a big guy. Although I went diving with a guy with the same first name as me and I was called little Scott. That guy was massive and he wasn't fat.
Anyways, if you want to talk diving, running (marathon in Rome 2011),weight lifting, or yoga drop me a line.
