Ashley, welcome to the team. I am very glad that you decided to join us. The more members that we get the more activities I will be able to plan. I also understand what you are going through with your weight and getting the gastric bypass. I myself am in the process of getting LapBand surgery done. I started at 354 lbs. and am down to 320 lbs. so it is possible. I am hoping to have mine done by spring. Are you new to sparkpeople? You have your profile set to privet but it would be beneficial to you if you set it so that other members can communicate with you. We are all about supporting each other in our journey to better health and fitness. I wish you the best of luck.

Tammy

Hi my name is Ali, I am 37 years old and will turn 38 at the end of January. I was born and raised in Sterling IL. I still live in the same house that I grew up in. I do not think I will ever get out of this house. I am married for 5 years and have 2 children 16 and 7. I work as a full time office manager. Right now I am looking for a local team and to meet new people. I have started sparkpeople a little over a year ago. I am sad to say that I tend to fall off the face of earth from time to time with the hectic schedule that I have. So right now my goal is to stay focused and to stay in touch with people who can help and give all the moral support that is needed. My second goal is to keep up with the workouts in the morning that I have been doing I know that they are only 10 to 20 minutes. But this is more than I was doing which was nothing. It is good to see others from the area Hope to see more.

Happy Holidays to everyone!!!

Ali

I'm Stephanie. 26 years old, young professional, newbie runner, married, no kids, 1 awesome dog. I live in Rockford but I joined this group because I've started running races all over Northern Illinois/Southern Wisconsin and Dixon isn't too far away... :-)

I have been working very hard in the 1.5 years to get to a healthy weight/BMI/body fat. I like to say that I do what I do to get sexy not skinny!

I've been stuck in the high 150's for weeks on end. Part of the problem is that I trained for a half-marathon from May - November and gained muscle! It's hard to get over the "number" rather than acknowledge that my body fat has decreased. My "goal weight" is 140 pounds and I hope that running and my semi-vegetarian lifestyle will assist me with this long term.

I started running in the spring of 2010 and I ran my first half marathon earlier this month finishing in 2 hours, 38 minutes. I have discovered that I love running and hope to make this a lifelong activity for me. I would love to have the endurance to completely run a full marathon.

So my goals:
1. Decreased body fat
2. Lose more weight
3. Improve my half-marathon time (I'm running the Rockford Half Marathon in May 2012)
4. Long term... run a full marathon!

Name is Lyle or[Skeeter] because my G P who gave me the nickname said I pestered him like one. Lived at Ashton Il. all my 73 years.
Goals are to stay maintained to save my heart and legs and other body parts so as to be around to see my 9 G K's from 4 S grow up and G G K's of which I have one.
Married for 53+ years to the same sweet heart. Same G ood L ookin C hick she always was.
Been lucky to have such a loving family all these years.
