Kara, Teresa, the Sparker I mentioned, lives on the south side not terribly far from the Alamodome. Something tells me the two of you should hook up! She would be a great mentor for you as she has lost a lot of weight and has the best attitude. I hope you will look her up and mention I suggested you two meet!
Well you're right! That would help! Lol I live right near Alamodome. I will not be able to attend Dinner as I work weekend nights most of the time :-( the curse of restaurant business! Thanks for the ideas.
I agree with MJ's recommendations. We definitely have a couple bikers on here! Definitely let us know what part of town you're from!
And if you're looking to meet people in person, check out the Dinner Meetup thread! We'll be meeting this Saturday at 5:30 at Ruby Tuesday's in the I-10/Wurzbach area. We'd love to have you come! RSVP is due tomorrow. :)
Welcome! We have a couple of bike riders on here. I hope someone reads this and responds. LIVESTRONG2010 is one person who comes to mind. She is awesome and loves her bike a lot! You might want to send her a note as she isn't online all the time. Also, what area of town do you live in? That might help you hook up with some local sparkers if we knew.
I think saving 20 bucks a day is a great motivator...and what a great way to save money AND get healthier. Smart choices all the way around. Good luck to you and keep us informed!
My name is kara and i am very excited to find this website especially with actual people nearby trying to do the same thing! I bought a bike today to start riding to work. This is actually for two benefits: exercise and saving 20$ a day for parking. So if anyone is interested in biking sometime let me know. (firstname.lastname@example.org) It's something i havent done in years so I'm not looking to go riding 20 miles tomorrow but maybe one day :-) best wishes and once again glad we are all here!
