I spent my first 17 yrs in NWA and the last 10 in Japan, Alaska, and currently North Carolina. We are moving back this summer. I was always super skinny growing up. It wasn't until I had my first child that I gained weight. I feel like every thing is going to be different moving back. Not only am I returning with two wonderful boys, but I'm also on a journey to a much healthier me. I'm looking forward to making new friends and rediscovering NWA. emoticon

I am Donna, I have lived in Arkansas since 1986. Currently in the NWA area for almost three years now. At 51 I am trying to get healthy and hopefully lose a little weight while I am at it. I have raised four boys with a wonderful husband. I was a LPN for several years when I decided to go back to school and become a high school science teacher. (That is what I currently do). I do not have a lot of spare time but when I do my husband and I try to go to the gym or even out for a walk.

Hi! I'm Millie and I live in the little town of Altus, just a little ways from Clarksville and Ozark, We were "snowbirds but found the people so friendly we decided to make this our permanent home. I had previously lost 60 pounds and regained 15 of that after a couple of courses of prednisone. I am now within 7 pounds of my goal and hoping to reach it in the next couple of months. I have a hard time losing even a pound a week even at 1200 calories a day and spending a lot of time working int the yard and garden.

Good afternoon all,

My name is Tiffany, and I live in Bella Vista. I became a proud mama to a little boy last September, and now I'm trying to lose the weight I should have lost BEFORE I got pregnant. I'm trying to be very active on Sparkpeople to help motivate me towards my goals since the my support network at home is very shallow. My husband is naturally skinny, and he doesn't understand how difficult weight loss can be.

I would really love to find a local buddy. It would be great to find another new parent (mom or dad, I don't care) with about 100 pounds to shed. Anyway, I can't wait to get to know all of you better.

Best,
Tiffany

Hello, My name is Deanna and I have recently relocated back to Arkansas after being away for 3 years. I am looking to get this excess weight off but I am lacking in the motivation/energy department. Partly because I had a new doctor when I first moved away who thought it would be a goood idea to take me off of my thyroid meds that I had been on for over 6 years and since I was taken off of the meds my weight just keeps going up and my energy just keeps going down. I am hoping that joining this group will help rekindle that fire to get motivated and get moving.

Hello, I'm Christine.
They featured NE Arkansas group and I hopped on it, thinking it was NW Arkansas. Got my directions mixed up. They're a great team, but as soon as I realized my mistake I went looking for NW Arkansas, and glad you're here. At first I thought this was an inactive group, and had no leaders. Then I got my welcome email, and am checking you out here. Sounds like it can be a great team here too.

I live in Bentonville. We moved here with Kraft Foods from Chicago in January this year. I'm taking college classes and about ready to apply to the nursing program. I'm taking them local at NWACC so I can be home for my 7 yr old little girl. I'll tell you about the other kids later.

My husband just let me get a new bike. He's the biggest exerciser in the family. I'm the one who learns about healthy eating and the rest. I have some type of IBS, and it's been interfering with my ability to do things, but I'm trying to manage. We want to bike ride together, and I want to do more than just bike trails. Thought I'd bike to college, so I got a hybrid bike this last Saturday. I need to accessorize it, starting with a kickstand. Got the bike at The Phat Tire Bike Shop here in Bentonville. My husband Pat will often bike around the Pea Ridge area, or Bella Vista.

My favorite exercising is going swimming or weights at the gym. I haven't had a gym membership for over a year now (I put my money into buying an elliptical at home), and low motivation since the pain and bloating kept messing me up. But, I really want to stay on top of it, and get back to having a fit and healthy body. I'm so glad Arkansas has such great outdoor stuff. It's lovely here. I'm originally from Oregon, and my husband is from Utah where they have those monster size mountains all around. I'm not used to this heat just yet. It may take me another year or so to get better acclimatized.

Hello everyone. I'm new to Sparkpeople, not sure where to begin. It's all somewhat overwhelming. Anyway, a bit about me...I'm one of those...I'll start the "diet" tomorrow, but tomorrow never comes! I've finally come to the realization that "dieting" is not the way to go. The sad thing is, I'm a nursing student so I know how to live a healthier lifestyle, I just have ZERO motivation. I look forward to seeing what Sparkpeople has to offer.

Hi. I am new to the SP and to the area. I am a newlywed. We relocated to NWA from Massachusetts for my husband's job. Right now I am a stay at home wife. We both have gained weight over the years and I decided a new healthier way of life. We started weight watchers and going to the gym regularly.

Welcome Rachel. Glad for all the local involvement we can get. I think it would be great at some point when we have a lot of participation to have a get-together. I would like to hear if there are any suggestions for this? Anyway--nice to meet you and best of luck as you take this journey with us.

Welcome to the team, Rachel! I'm really on a mission to liven up this board and make it fun - the more we all participate, the more we have the opportunity to help each other! I wish you the best of luck on your journey, and let me know if I can help you in any way.

Hi! I'm Rachael. I'm new to the group and the area. I have a boyfriend. We met in middle school and then did things in other states for a while before getting together for good. (Because he's THE Boy and not a boy.) I have a one-eyed snuggly black cat named Cyclops who owns my heart and a recently adopted pound puppy named Sadie who owns The Boy's heart. I like books, glitter, nerdy things, music, anything involving David Bowie or Mike Patton, delicious frothy beer, basketball, maps, bodies of water and all activities related to bodies of water except dredging lakes and pretending that kickboxing means I could totally take somebody in an alley fight. I'm pretty fat. I got really fat, but now I'm less fat and that's exciting. I don't dig being fat and that's why I'm here. I've lurked around SP for over a year but recently have gradually increased my involvement because it increases my accountability and inspires me. I look forward to hearing about everyone's journey and hope I'm a useful member of this group.

Hello NWA Sparkers! I had no idea that this group existed until today. I'm living in Fayetteville. I'm fairly new to SP, I joined around the beginning of the year in search of some support for my weight-loss goal. As my name indicates, I am trying to lose 30 pounds before I turn 30 this October. SP says I can do it, if only I can stick to 1500 calories per day and burn about 600 each week. I'm working with a trainer at the UofA, and had actually been gaining weight up until last week when I lost 3 pounds (whoo hoo!). I'm feeling more motivated now, and will be trying harder to stay within my calorie range. I exercise mostly on campus, at Wilson Park, Lake Fayetteville, or on the bike trails. I like being outside when the weather is nice. I'd like to become a jogger...but for now the walking is OK.

Hello all! My name is Krista and I live in the Siloam area. I started diet #2356 on January 1st and have lost 8 pounds so far. Now the going is getting rough and I gotta get in the game to be serious this time. I am 42 and tired of being out of shape and I like cute clothes way too much to be fat!

Hi my name is Leah. I am 45 soon to be 46. I have been a yoyo dieter all my life. I lost 100 pounds 6 years ago thanks to a lapband but I have put 50 of that back on. I have seen several of my older friends having health issues in the last few weeks and this scares me. We have been in Arkansas for eight months now from Illinois and love the outdoors. I want so much to be healthy so I can go for hikes and enjoy a longer life without health issues. I just found this site yesterday and I am thankful for it. I actually had a good day on track and even exercised. We are empty nesters and just got a new doggie last week who needs to be walked so that will be a motivator.

Starting today; losing 50 pounds is my goal. Working toward focusing on myself more. Beginning another year with the same goal. Looking forward to 2010 being the last year I can make that statement.

Hello! I'm 34, live in Springdale with my husband Toby and our 2 boxers. I joined SP a few months ago and have done lots and lots of reading, but not a lot of "following thru" with all the things I've learned. I reset everything to start fresh today...hopefully to start this new year off on the right foot. I hope to keep the motivation that I woke up with this morning and make a few new friends along the way. Good Luck to everyone and Happy 2010!

Live the life you Love, Love the life you Live!

Hi!! I'm Brandy. I live in Rogers and am a stay at home mom with my 2 girls. I really need to lose weight so I was googling weight loss sites and found sparkpeople. I really need to stay motivated, so I'm looking for friends to help me. My husband just tells me he loves me the way I am. I'm happy that he loves me no matter what, but I really need a kick in the butt to lose weight when I get off track. So I'm looking forward to meeting people!!

Hi all! I'm Jenny and I've lived in Gravette all of my life (except for the 8 months after I first got married and we lived in Springdale). I'll be turning 28 in January. I've been married for 7 1/2 years and have two kids, a 6 year old son and a twenty-one month old daughter. I need to lose about 35 lbs to get back to the weight I was before I got pregnant with my son. I would like to get back in shape before trying to have another baby and I would, also, like to get in shape so I can keep up with my kids better (because they are both VERY active). I've tried several times to diet, but I never can seem to stay motivated. I'm hoping and praying that I can this time around.

The majority of the trail is super dark at night.... they're putting lights up, but have a long way to go.... A Saturday might work out perfectly.... I'm building up to being able to pull my daughter in the kiddie trailer...... Once I can do that (instead of my hubby) she and I will be able to run around on our own.... and with strangers from the internet emoticon tee hee....

I also started out with the Always Fit Challenge at Fayetteville Athletic Club. Was able to loose 16 pounds and then when the challenge was over went right back to my unhealthy habits. I am a mother of a 3 1/2 year old who loves to play soccer! My husband and I were high school sweethearts and have been married for a little over 7 years now. We both could loose a lot of weight! I am a Complaince and Operations Administrator and Security Officer for a local community Bank

Hi everyone! I'm 22 and single and live in the river valley. I weigh 337 pounds now and I started out at 420. My goal weight is about 175, so I still have a long way to go, but I finally feel like I can do it.

I just came off of a long plateau and I think it was thanks to all the awesome tools and tips I've found here on SparkPeople.

I like to hike, swim, and lift weights, and just came back from a four-day campout. I'm loving summer!

I look forward to getting to know everyone. Thanks for making this group.

Hey Everybody! I'm back! I know alot of you don't even know me, but I was once a team leader - I actually started this team! So here I go.... Hi, I'm Paula, previously known as JeepMama. I live in Elkins, work in Fayetteville & belong to Mission Fitness in Fayetteville. I love to walk, hike, bike, etc... so let me know if you'd like to hit a trail around Fayetteville sometime - I'd love to get a group exercising together again.

Hello,
I am Melissa, 30yo and married. I have been on SP since about January, and have lost 32 lbs. I didn't know there was an NWA team until today. I live in Bentonville. I am hoping to lose 50 lbs total by my vacation either in july or aug. That is my short term goal, I have a lot more to lose than that. Have a great weekend everyone!

Hi from Fayetteville! I'm pretty new to Spark and still trying to find my way around. My goal...lose weight and keep it off! I often lose motivation quickly- hopefully this time will be different! I've lost 9 pounds sense I began this weight loss journey...It must have been water weight. My goal is to lose aprox 30 more. I have no urge to be skinny...just more healthy. I hate the word "diet" so you'll never hear me say I'm "dieting." I'm really not much of a calorie counter either, but I suppose I'll give it a try. I'm looking forward to making a few online friends who are going through the same struggles I am. Good luck to all.

Hey, my name is Ramie, and this is actually my second time here on SparkPeople. I am 31 years old, divorced (no kids), and am in my third semester back at college (UofA). I also work part-time as a nanny/office manager (sounds funny, I know) for a speech pathologist in Springdale. I live in Fayetteville near the University, and am really wanting to get into better shape (my goal is to lose 45-50 pounds, no time limit).

Hi,
I am Jamie. I am trying to loose about 135 lbs. I haven't always been overweight. I use to be very athletic but I let it get away from me. I went to the doctor today and she told me that I am at risk for all sorts of things so I have to get my weight down. I am only 26 years old I should not be struggling so bad with this. Right now I have a very bad back problem so I can't do any exercise that has to do with my back (walking is even a problem right now). I am going to work on eating right and some sitting exercises and I can't wait to swim!

I was so glad to find an NWA team. I have been on SP for a long time, but not active.
I was born & raised in NWA, and I think it's beautiful and I love most everything about it.
I have lost 100 lbs in the past year. I am feeling so much better and I am focused on how far I've come, not how far I still have to go.
I am in my 30s, work full-time, go to college part-time, and have kids. Time-management is a must.
I am looking forward to having a team in NWA!

Happy New Year!!
My name is Melissa and I live in Bella Vista. I have been walking around Lake Bella Vista the last three days and decided I would check this out again. I am hoping to find a walking friend (my weiner dog gets pooped too fast). Anyway good luck to everyone and let me know if anyone is interested in walking for about 30 to 60 minutes at a pretty brisk pace (not too fast to chat). I get along with everyone. My goal is to go for half an hour EVERY day.
Talk to you soon.
Melissa

Hi, everybody!

I'm Amy. I'm 36, and I live in Fayetteville. I lost my job earlier this year and decided to go to college to get a degree in chemical engineering. I've got a fiancee, three dogs, and two cats.

I joined SP earlier this year, but only just now have been able to get my heart and mind in the right place to start taking care of myself. I've got 100-120 pounds to lose, and I am ready to go!

It's so good to meet you all!

Hi there. I've been on SP for several months now and active for about 3 weeks. I've been wandering around the teams pages and found this one. I'd like to join you if you'll have me. emoticon

I've lived in NW Arkansas now for about 3 years. I'm a SW Missouri transplant by way of Iowa. We love it here! My wonderful hubby of 11 years and I have 2 kids, Jorgie is my 24 year old step-son. He lives in Iowa and is a manager of a sportsbar there. Emilio is our 17 year old nephew but he's lived with us for 4 years now so he's ours.

I've been steadily gaining weight for the past couple of years. A combination of turning 40 and my love for the couch and the big screen tv lol. I've been enjoying using sp and it's helped quite a bit so far, but I would like to join a team where we help each other to stay motivated. I was reading the thread about the October challenge and I'd love to be involved.

I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you here!

Welcome, Katie and Renay!!

Sorry that I haven't been on much lately, but school is taking up a LARGE amount of our time...

I hope the rest of you are having better luck staying on a healthy eating plan... school lunches are killers...filled with carbs!!

Let the good times roll!

Welcome to the Team, Renay! Sorry to hear about your house and am glad you're all settled now. My best word of advise is to check in daily with a couple of different teams! It the best way to stay positive about the whole weight loss process - I have been struggling recently, but am hoping to get myself moving again today at lunch!

Join us in the monthly cardio challenge... this month it a collective team effort to get 12,500 minutes of cardio in. If you'd like to join, go to the team's home page and scroll to the bottom where the challenges are located and join us!

Hi, My name is Renay, I am a 48 year old mother of 3 and grandmother of 3 and I have been a member of SparkPeople for a while. Unfortunately, I have been inactive for the past 6 months and I am really feeling it.
My husband and I moved to Bentonville in January after our house flooded in Southwest Arkansas. Our kids invited us to live with them while we got settled and we finally are. My computer has been replaced and I am ready to start again. Any ideas or encouraging words would be greatly appreciated at this point.

Hey Katie! I'm glad you finally made the move down here! I talked to you one the Arkansas Board... they're doing away with all the state boards now so it's a good thing you joined the team!

We've got a cardio challenge going right now, the team together is trying for 12,500 minutes of cardio for the month of August. At the bottom of the Team's home page, just click on the Join button and then start entering your minutes on the team - we'd love to have you join us and need those minutes! Step aerobics count!

Hi everyone, I'm Katie -- I think I've posted on the Arkansas board but never joined the team.

My boyfriend will be attending the university this fall, so we made the move from Kansas City to Fayetteville on August 1. I'm 30, no kids but treat my cats like children (I know, I'm insane), and hope to meet some fun, new people in NWA!

My goal on sparkpeople is to maintain my current weight and stay regular in my workout routine. Prior to our move, I was doing step aerobics and cardio pilates about four hours a week...but since we've lived here, I've only worked out a handful of times and need some motivation!

Look forward to racking up some good team points with everyone!

Hi Team, I'm Beth. I have been with Sparkpeople for almost four months and I truly believe in it. I am married and live in Pea Ridge. I have two married sons. I have 4 grandkids and 2 on the way. I have worked for Wal-Mart Shared Services for 7 years. I am a member of several teams but I haven't really been active with them. Hopefully since this team is where I live I may be active.

God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation.

Hi all, My name is Tara and I live in Fayetteville and work in Bethel Heights. I have two kids one is grown and lives in Jonesboro (she is thinking about moving back here YEAAAA) and the other just graduated high school and lives with me.
I am in a kind of unique situation where I am still in my thirties (slowly inching toward the forties) yet my kids are grown. I wonder are there any others out there like me?
Anyway I am happy to have found this group and look forward talking to everyone.

Welcome to the Team, Judy! We're heading out to Lake Fayetteville for a little (5.5 mile) hike at 7:30 tomorrow morning if you'd like to join us. We're meeting at the baseball fields... just look for my Jeep (see my SparkPage) - we'd love to have you!

I'm Paula, the fearless (haha) co-leader & our other co-leader is Jana. I live in Elkins, but work in Fayetteville so I'm pretty much always in Fayetteville during the summer months. I've got two boys (10 & 7) and a hubby.

Thank you for the welcome,

I think I manage to not be scared off by all the women. I know of the out-of-balance ratio of men to women on SparkPeople. Could it possibly be the men tend to be a bit...hesitant to reach out for help? Oh well, between the church office and my wife, much of my life greatly helped by wonderful women. A few more will probably only make things better.

Welcome to the group, Robbie.

Good luck with that ice cream!! Maybe you could have a party and invite the neighbors, so they will eat it and you won't have to. LOL

Let the good times roll!

Welcome to the Team, Christy! Motivation is a fleeting thing for most - we lose sight of the end while that cake or bbq chicken is in front of us and the family is chowing down, do the best you can and forgive yourself when you slip up.

Word! My name is Christy, I live out in Tontitown with my husband of almost 11 years (Ryan) and my two awesome children (Egillio-4 & Rosalie-2). Like many, I gained waaay too much weight with both of my pregnancies! Way too much! I still carry about 50 pounds of it. My little sister is getting married in October and I would love to fit into the size 12 dress I have already purchased for the event! I grew up in Bentonville, class of 93. I saw my bff from B'ville post on here - CWalker! I have only been a member a few days, but I really feel like this website will help me. I have motivation problems (who doesn't!) and just seeing how well everyone on here is doing has really helped me already. emoticon

Welcome to the team! I'm Carrie! I have a wonderful hubby of 14.5 years and 4 children (3 boys and a girl). I stay pretty busy but try to post everyday. Posting really makes a difference in staying focused for me. I am working on staying around 10,000 steps a day. I really think that is a good way to keep active. Look forward to getting to know you more.
