Hi Mari-Serv. I know I've heard of Milltown but I just can't place. I'm @ GSP 131 & the NJ Turnpike @ 11. Are you by Cranberry?

Hello back Lasecre01, I apologize for taking so long to get back to you. I'm not quite sure where that Boston Market is exactly. I'm near Woodbridge Mall. Nothing personal but Edison is like an octopus, ie: it's tentacles are everywhere. I think that's a great idea Lasecre01, we all may never meet face-to-face but we can keep in touch here. You certainly sound like you are kept running, but I would venture to guess that your grand-children help keep you young & active. Congrats on the 21# loss since 1/2013! What exactly does Sensa do as far as weight loss goes?

My own introduction...I am the youngest of my parents 3 daughters. I am also the fourth (&last) generation RN as my mom, my nana, & my great-grandmother were all Registered Nurses before me. I worked at Muhlenberg Regional Medical Center for over 31 years & I also got my Nurses' Training there (only then it was Muhlenberg Hospital). My area of specialty & certification was the PACU = Post Anesthesia Care Unit, where one goes between the O.R. & their bed elsewhere in the hospital. That was the only hospital I worked at, it was kind of my second home so-to-speak. I went out on a medical leave in 9/2006 & little did I know that that was the start of the end of my nursing career. Due to numerous health issues that arose I wasn't able to return to work & then the hospital was forced to close its doors at the end of 8/2008. For me & many others the hospital's closing was a real tragedy & it is only going to lead to more tragedies b/c it was the best hospital in the area (in my humble opinion & maybe a tiny biased one). Much precious, needed time will be lost for treating those with grave health issues as they now have to travel farther to get to the treatment they need.

Let's see, at this point I have me, myself, & I as I remained single & my folks have passed up to a better place. When I could, I enjoyed going to assorted cultural performances in varied venues. And I think that's about all for now.

Wishing all are having a pleasant week-end. Take good care & be well. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Hi Mari-Serv, though we are all a ways from each other, I think we can all communicate on what we are all up to. I am not sure if I actually introduced myself to any of you on this conversation loop. I am a mother of 5 children, all grown except the youngest who is in 9th grade now. I hv 3 grandchildren that live with my hubby & I & thr mother ages from 18 months to 14. So thr are actually 4 kids in our household. We are constantly running. I am the leader of our Church's Food Pantry. With a group of about 10 volunteers. We started exercising once a wk with Aerobics on or about Oct. 2012. & just last week started walking 2.5 miles in the neighborhood. 2nd walk today weather allowing. I hv lost 21 pounds since Jan. 2013. But I am also doing the Sensa Shake,Shake, Shake. It does help with curbing my big mouth! Rlol. Let's all keep in touch in this journey.

Hi MargeMF, thanks for yr response. I actually work in Iselin. I am in the Boston Market on Te 1 side of Edison. I don't think thr is a Central New Jersey Team either. But tI think they were talking about having one start up. So I got curious & asked. Sorry to hear you have health issues & cannot partake of any physical activities. I wl check out the suggested posts as soon as I get a chance. Pleasant weather???? Ugh. I felt like a duck this morning. RLOL.
Hv a great day all.

Hello all. Lasecre01, I think we may be neighbors. I live in Iselin & depending where in Edison you are we may not be far apart. Thus, I am also in Central Jersey. I've been a SparkPeople member since 1/2008 but have never heard of a Central Jersey team. However, due to health issues I don't partake in walks, runs, etc. & actually just found these Message Boards recently after doing some exploring.

Look under the topic 'April Chat' also in this forum. GratefulBob seems to be organizing a walk on 6/8/13 from Holy Saviour Academy in South Plainfield. His post was on 4/8/13 with more details.

Take good care everyone & enjoy the pleasant weather!

There wasn't actually a Central Jersey Team, just a few walks were organized in the area. Nothing has been organized in a couple of years.

However, BONNYSAMMY, is trying to organize a team for the Color Run at Englishtown Raceway, August 31.

FreeOak, Mercer County. It has been quite a journey with obstacles galore. But, I went from a size WP 44 to a WP 12. Spark People is the ONLY plan that works. Without it, I am lost. Tonight I went about 75 calories over. But, with a little exercise and journaling more carefully, I will get down. As one of the Huddles says, "Persistence pays off". emoticon emoticon emoticon
