I am new to sparkpeople but already really like it. I live on the south side of Milford (almost considered Lincoln). I have always struggled with my weight, but this time I am committed to getting healthy! I have a great support system! My girlfriend goes walking with me and she cooks me healthier food! I am trying to be more active outside. In the last week I have done a total of 8 miles! That's a lot for me. I am also doing better with beverage choices. I used to drink soda all the time. In the past week I have only had one! Most days I have a cup of coffee then water for the rest of the day!

Hello all, This is my second time jointing sparkspeeps. This time I am more than committed to it as well as motivated. I am an active person, ran into some medical issues which slowed me down to a crawl. My job unfortunately is sedentary and I am looking to change that. In addition I am a full time student and work 60+ hours a week (self employed). However, my biggest change is that my youngest child is now 20 (I have 4), so there is no reason not to dedicate some time to "ME". I am currently one week in and look for things to do that require activity. Who else is down by Bethany Beach?

Never give up on yourself, and whatever you do, do it for yourself.

Hi! Welcome to Team Delaware. I live in New Castle County and I love living in Delaware too! You have some great goals in place. Support is the key to reaching your goals and Spark People is a great way to get that support from others.

I walk, run, do yoga and some strength training. I can see how walking without sidewalks could be a challenge - but at least the weather is nicer now. emoticon

Hi there,
I live in Hollyville, about 3 miles outside of Millsboro on Rt.23 (Hollyville Road). I work FT and different times of the day so it is hard for me to commit to a set schedule. Walking is my thing but since there are no sidewalks near me it is sometimes a challenge with traffic.
I also started a Healthy Eating group that meets once a month for a potluck dinner and either a speaker or diet related DVD. Last month Dr.Michael Salvatore spoke on the relationship of chronic illnesses and our diet.I am a diabetic and my goal is to get off my medication.Losing weight is a side benefit. I am currently 85% vegetarian and I hope to become Vegan but for me it takes time to change bad lifelong eating patterns.
Do you walk or do some regular activity? I hope you like living in DE.

Hello all, I'm new to the Delaware message boards. I live in the town that's too big for one state emoticon

If you're tired of starting over... stop giving up!
You can't reach for anything new if your hands are filled with yesterday's junk.
No one can make you feel inferior without your permission.
Your goals, minus your doubts, equal your reality.
The difference between try and triumph is just a little umph!
The road to success is dotted with many tempting parking places.
Insanity is doing the same thing again and again and expecting a different result.

Hi all I live in the beaches area of Sussex county (Lewes, Rehoboth, Dewey) and new to the area, recently moved from Maryland. Im trying to get healthier and lose some lbs. Somehow or another the last few yrs I lost my waist, could be that time for me, Im in my early 50's.

I have a husband I adore, and a sweet 'lil mixed terrier dog I like to spoil.

Need to run off and go drink some water now, hope to see you soon. Good luck!

Hello everyone,

I live in Seaford Delaware. I'm new to Sparkpeople, think it's a great site. Nice to know there are others in the area on Sparkpeople. I have a lot of weight to lose. I'm doing okay with the food but still haven't gotten into exercise regularly. I'm a senior, built for comfort not speed. Would like to find a walking buddy. I'm working in the summer so it would have to be in the evening. Congrats on being here

Hello. My name is jay. I live in Laurel with my wife Tina. I have 80 pounds to lose. I am glad there is a group for Sussex County. I need to be accountable to a group. It just makes it easier for me when I have to "report" what I am doing. Blessings to you all.

I give up trying to get to know people on the western side of Sussex County. All have a fun & healthy life.

I am a very easy going gal that loves people and wants to know as many as I can. I want to make new friends so I can enjoy more of life. When people get to 55 or 60 there are some that think life should be over but guess what it is just beginning. Maybe 50 years ago it was over but not now people are living longer and working in their 70's. I would have been if I didn't have leukemia and it does not stop me but I have good days and bad, so being home if I need rest, I rest, at work I couldn't do

STACE1814, check the Chamber of Commere in Rehobeth and they may have some down at the beaches. Boys and Girls clubs also could be checked out. Still would love to meet some people on the west side of Sussex not much into the beaches. I have my own pool to swim in.

I am new to Spark but I by no means am new to this dieting thing. My name is Melissa. I am 39, a happily married wife of 10.5 years, a daughter, a step-mom of 3 wonderful adults (19, 21, 22), grandmother of 1 girl (a little sweet heart who will be 10 months old on Sunday) a mother-in-law to a great daughter and soon to be son too emoticon . I am also a 11 year Cancer Survivor emoticon and a business owner.

I am on permanent disability and spend most of my time at home and in front of my laptop. It was doing one of my days of surfing around the web that I cam across this website. Since I decided to giving dieting another try, I thought I would try this too.

Would LOVE to hear from anyone!!

Chattiegirl, Consider joining Curves in Seaford! It is a group of very friendly women and they were all very welcoming to me when I moved here 3 years ago. It is in shopping center where Rose's is. The owner's name is Sylvia and she is just wonderful. I have made lots of friends there.

Hello,

My name is Sonja and I joined SP to help keep me motivated on this journey I am embarking on. I want to lose about 80 lbs by this time next year. I had always been an active person til about a year ago when I went through a bad breakup. I'm feeling back to my old self again and looking to get back into the swing of exercising and eating right. I look forward to using this website as an additional motivator on reaching my goal.

Hi THERESABURNNU, GLAD YOU JOINED. WHERE DO YOU TRAIN?
EVERYONE HAVE A GREAT WEEK.

SMILE jOYCE

I am a very easy going gal that loves people and wants to know as many as I can. I want to make new friends so I can enjoy more of life. When people get to 55 or 60 there are some that think life should be over but guess what it is just beginning. Maybe 50 years ago it was over but not now people are living longer and working in their 70's. I would have been if I didn't have leukemia and it does not stop me but I have good days and bad, so being home if I need rest, I rest, at work I couldn't do

Hi! My name is Deby and I live in Georgetown. I just joined 10.16.11 and today (10.17) will be my first entries for activity, etc.
I have quite a bit of weight to lose which is hampered by issues with my legs (caused by surgery). I might not be able to run, but I can walk and bike and I'm determined to start doing at least one of them.
I'm 53, single and love my pets. I have 3 dogs, 4 cats and 2 cockatoos. And fish. I love spending time with friends, Mother Nature and my own quiet time for reading and reflection.
I have a zest for life but it's been buried under my excess weight. I've finally decided that enough is enough and I'm on a journey to better health.
I look forward to getting to know you! And I'll be happy once I figure this whole site out!

Hi ,
Would like to make some friends but I am 68 and have 3 grown daughters with children older than yours. Good luck with your weight lost. Try walking 15 minutes each hour you are up and you can get 10 or more miles.

Well I'm back down in Lewes now after breaking up with my boyfriend and moving out of our apartment in Newark. Hope everyone fared Irene well, our family was evacuated since we're less than a mile from Lewes beach, so we headed on up to Smyrna with the pup and kitty with my mother and grandmother and stayed at the Best Western there. I have to say besides worrying about the house and everything, it was almost like a mini-vacation. We just had a little siding damage and some trees were ruined, but luckily the tornadoes didn't land near us. Hope everyone else was as lucky! My friend's grandmother actually lives near Donovan road where one tornado touched down, but fortunately it didn't come near the house, just threw a few trees around in her yard.

Hello,
Mindy here! I'm stuck in good ol' Millsboro. I have been here for almost 10 years now and absolutely hate the place, summer, winter, fall, spring! But since DE is a resort area there are tons of beaches and trails to walk on so I guess one thumb up to DE helping me loose weight.

I think I know both of those places, although I haven't actually walked the Nanticoke trail. Can you tell that I am not from Seaford? emoticon

Honestly, I have zero desire to exercise. And with the heat, even less desire. But sometimes a good walk with good company feels great, so maybe once the worst of summer is over, we can find each other in the great outdoors.

After I go to the Dr. next week and find out if I have to have more chemo I will know what I can do. I love too walk around my yard, it is 5 acres and in the fall when bugs are gone. I would love to connect with people on this team. Smile and be happy.

My daughter has told me about trails called Nanticoke Nature trail back behind the duPont plant (it's not called duPont anymore, is it?) and at Trap Pond in Laurel. She said Trap Pond would be safer but it's a state park so I think there might be a small fee. We should all get together one of these days and go for a hike!!

Hello, I am new to SP. I joined today. I've been working on my weight for quite some time now. This site was recommended by a friend, after checking it out I've found that it has quite a few advantages than the site I was already using. I hope to find motivation and possible a walking partner here. I'm in the Milford area.

Happy Birthday! You're the first person I remember seeing on here from Seaford...that's where I'm living. Pictures are blocked when I'm on my computer at work, so will have to check out your page when I get home. I love your attitude - leukemia is no big deal.

Hi everyone in Susswx, just found this team and I am in Seaford. I am 68 turned just Thursday and usually very active but under the weather at this time with chemo. I have leukemia which is no big deal but once in awhile it tries to take over. Please check out my page and see if you reconize me through my work or around town. Would love to make some friends. Stay true to your healthy living and exercising.

Smile,

Joyce

If anyone knows places to go hang out and enjoy life, dance, mingle, have a drink or two... please let me know some suggestions!! Anyways... I am a stay at home mom, sell Avon from home, love life and laughing and am searching for friends so all responses are welcome...

My name is Vicki and I live in Bridgeville. I have been on here a while but didn't really stick to it. I am back and ready to finally lose this weight. I would like someone that could walk with my 4 year old and me. (I work 2pm-10pm). Reason being when it is time I just talk myself out of it. I need to be accountable to someone else. I fight myself all the time with doing what I need to do by saying OH..I'll start tomorrow. Glad to be back!

You can't be there for your family if you don't take care of yourself first!!

Hi to my slower-lower "neighbors" from central Sussex! I'm a 51yo grandma, raising our 4yo granddaughter full time and 15yo granddaughter part time, and I started exercising regularly last August just to combat the stress. I started the C25K program in September but developed a lower back/SI joint injury in October that keeps me from doing a lot, so I'm in PT 3x/week and do what I can on my days off. I'm active at DailyMile for my exercising, but I finally had to accept that my weight is hampering my healing, so I just joined SparkPeople to track my eating (I'm anti-dieting, for hundreds of reasons, but need and want to eat better!).

Anyway, I'm glad to find a friendly crowd here. I hope that by around spring I'll be restarting the C25K program, and may be looking for run/walk partners at that point. I love dancing of all kinds (country line & 2-step, latin, good old rock & roll, swing, anything!) and I saw that someone mentioned dancing, so I'd love to find out about any opportunities there are to go dancing around here!

Do they have those 5k walks around here? It would be a good chance to get together. But I'd have to walk it, not run, I'm not there yet!

Hi all. I live between Bridgeville and Georgetown. It's nice to see people that live in the same area as me on SparkPeople. I'm looking forward to meeting people that are facing the same challenges with weight lose.

Hi Sussex Co. I live between Milton and Lincoln. Love it here. Started with Sparkpeople last April. Lost 20 and have 25 to go to reach goal....but recently have just been bogged down. How do you all get out of the doldrums? Thanks.

Hi, my name is Vanessa and I live in the Millsboro area. I just joined sparkpeople and am inspired to read about other people in the local area that are participating in this site. I read some posts below and saw that someone mentioned Zumba classes that are being held really close to me. I plan on checking them out!

Welcome WITCHESNHARLEYS!
I imagine you were out this week enjoying Delmarva Bike Week. We were at Seaford Harley Thursday night, Winterplace Park and the ballpark Friday, and all around Ocean City today. I'm wore out!

Hi all!
I live south of Millsboro. It's great to see others from the area. I'm doing LC and use walking as my primary exercise with some weight training. Nice to meet you all!
