Hi Everyone... I am not new to Spark, though I have been hit and miss in being here on the site on and off for years. I am however new to the Arden Arcade area... live off of Marconi. I used to live in Roseville/Rocklin area. I am having a hard time adjusting to the area, and so my weight, which I was maintaining with plenty of walking when we lived in Roseville, has gone up again, as there just is not a lot of sidewalks in my area and I find it hard to motivate to get in the car and go to one of the parks that are very close by when I have to go by myself. I am hoping someone here lives close to me and perhaps we can meet 1-2x a week and walk... maybe meet for coffee once in a while or just go window shopping or out for a healthy lunch once in a while. Life is too short to sit alone in the four walls as much as I do. Though I do not drive that much, due to neck issues, so would really like to keep meeting places in the Arden Arcade area.
A little bit about myself... I am 46 years of age. Don't let my age scare you, I do not care how old or young you are. It is about making a connection. I am a wife, mother to three grown girls, I do not work due to having fibromyalgia and various other health issues.... not that I let that stop me from living. I enjoy writing my blog ( a life blog) , remodeling and decorating our new to us cottage, window shopping, reading Cozy Mysteries, surfing the internet, going wine tasting and going on Sunday drives with my husband.
Hi I am new to the team. I was on WW and lost 65 lbs, life got in the way and I gained it back, then retired and gained another 14 lbs. Having a difficult time getting motivated. I have bad knees, osteoarthritis, so walking is out. I will be going back to the gym starting the beginning of the year and will be using the pool and the gym at least twice a week. I am still on WW and going back to the original plan and will be tracking everything I eat, including the bites, licks and tastes at COSTCO. I also will be tracking my Sodium, which has helped me before. As long as I keep it at 1500 mg I will lose. Trust me, that is a very big challenge for anyone.
Hi everyone... I am new to this site. I am really excited about trying this, but so scared I am going to fail because I have a habit of sabotaging myself. I have been overweight my whole life and really want to get down to a decent size for my health both mentally and physically. I don't have much support from the people around me so I really could use some motivational friends to help me keep going.

I am a caterpillar in my cocoon just waiting to be transformed into a beautiful butterfly!
Hi everyone, I am new to this site and this team. It's actually a little over whelming, but I'm sure it gets better.
A little about myself, I have been on my weight loss journey for 75 weeks now, I began on March 2, 2010. I have currently lost 145 lbs. and went from a size 24 to a 12. It has been the best experience. I have 50 more pounds or less...but I have hit a plateau for about 2 months now....I had surgery in May and the doc advised I needed to slow down...I have not gained, and have not lost...
I am looking to meet others that know and understand the importance of our journeys. I have lost a lot of weight, and I am ready to reach life time goals..
