The trees. I love living among the trees. I'm close enough to SR and to the City that I can take part in things that go on there if I want, but I live surrounded by the beauty of the redwoods and the river. I've been to the Armstrong Woods several times. It's so beautiful!

If you ever get the urge to hike it again, send me a message. We could meet there and take one of the trails. Hiking is one of my favourite forms of exercise and I'm doing a lot of that around here!

I grew up in Guerneville! I live in Santa Rosa now. What brings you tobthe river? Have you been to Armstrong Woods yet? Amazing place to walk, run, hike or just go to meditate

Hello! I am new to the area and live in Guerneville on the Russian River. There isn't a Guerneville team, but SR is nearby, so I look forward to meeting my fellow sparkers. If anyone is up for a hike in the beautiful Armstrong Woods, I'm there!

Hi fellow Santa Rosans! I'm a returning member, as you can read in my blog. Definitely need some support and inspiration. Just found out I'm gonna be a gramma this June. I'd like to be a thinner, healthier, more active gramma - before I need to start chasing! I've been successful with Spark before; I will be again! - with your help and encouragement.

Hi all,
I'm Kellie and am in South Santa Rosa. I walk daily on my lunch break. It is a 1.6 mi loop I do in under 30 min. I want to get up to running speeds but have lower backnissues so I'm taking it slow and steady.
I will be 50 in March and want to be at my goal weight, be fit and able to maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Hi Lorrie. It's nice to meet you. I used to live in Petaluma. There are some super nice trails there if you know where to look emoticon . Welcome to the group, wherever they are.

Hello! My name is Angela and I am trying this site for the first time. I have tried to loose weight on and off for the past 10 years, and I'm just completely fed up with the jiggle and want to tone it down, literally! I love doing Zumba in my living room; I haven't graduated to public appearances yet. I do have a super busy schedule being in the Dental Assisting Program at the SRJC, but I hope to make more time for working towards a healthier me. I LOVE food, and love to cook. I hope to incorporate recipes from this site into my husband and I's daily meals. I live in NESR right off of Farmers Lane.

I recently bought the book and decided to sign up to the website as well. I live in NWSR and primarily bicycle and walk my dog for excercise with some pilates thrown in. Haven't really participated in a group weightloss program/effort before, so this is new.

Welcome Jeanne and Alex!!

I also walk Riverfront from time to time but saw a snake last time I was there..eww... They terrify me to put it mildly!! I too have a parks pass. I also do Foothill and Shiloh Ridge once in a while but Shiloh is much harder (at least for me) with more climbs. Foothill has a variety of trails so there are easier and harder. I haven't attempted Taylor Mountain yet but hope too one of these days.

Hi! I'm Jeanne and I'm new here. Live in NW Santa Rosa. I'm not working right now, at least not at a 9-5 job, so I'm available if anyone wants to walk in the mornings. I have 100+ pounds to lose so no hiking Annadel for me, but I love walking the 2 miles around Riverfront and I still want to attempt the climb the hill at the new park, Taylor Mountain. I have an annual parks pass too. emoticon

Hello everyone! I'm Alex and I've lived in Rohnert Park/Santa Rosa all 22 years of my life. I've just recently discovered this site and I'm pleasantly surprised to see a group dedicated to Santa Rosa/Sonoma County. I've seen musings on group walks around here? That sounds like a lot of fun!

Hi, I am Krista. I am new to SparkPeople and California. My husband and I moved here last fall for the Coast Guard. I am originally from a small town in Pennsylvania, but the military has moved us to Virginia and now California. I joined SparkPeople to try to state motivated to walk everyday !

New to Spark People and ready for a change. I live in the Rohnert Park and hope to find some like minded people to walk with. I have well over 100 pounds to lose and way out of shape. I currently walk a track by my kid's school, but I also like to go to the coast and I like riding my bike and walking in the woods. I would love to have someone to talk to while walking.

Hi everybody!

My name is Amanda and I live in Santa Rosa. Trying to loose 70lbs, and just cant motivate myself to get up most evenings for myself to go for a walk. If anybody is in the area and would like to get together for evening walks, I would be pretty excited :) Hoping I can gain some motivation by osmosis!

Where do you like to go for walks? I love Spring lake-- I would go there everyday if I could. The Santa Rosa creek is near my house but I hate walking that path alone.

I think I posted this in the wrong spot earlier.
My name is Jacqueline. I am pretty excited about getting started with SP. I know that a healthy diet and exercise is all that is needed for a healthy lifestyle but when I was in junior high I developed an eating disorder bulimia/anorexia. Other girls found out about it and I was humiliated and was glad to move away shortly after. I swung in the complete opposite and stopped worrying about what I ate and just began eating what I wanted. That was fine while I was leading an active lifestyle in high school and even a few years ago when I had a very active job. But since moving to California with my fiance', I have not found a job here. On top of not knowing too many people being far away from girlfriends and family-- I find myself bored and eating a lot. I have definitely gained a lot of weight since I've been here and I'm tired of denying it. California is beautiful! I love being outside in the sunshine and going for walks-- just always feel weird and awkward if I do it by myself. I love Spring Lake! I would love to get together with a group of girls to do those type of fun activities. Send me a message I would love to talk :)

Hi everyone,
Cool to find a local group here! I am Cheryl and I live in Santa Rosa. I'm 50 years old, and work from home, which is great, but a challenge because I spend too much time working in front of my computer and don't get up and get active. I met a sweet man who loved me just the way I was (which was overweight) and I thought that meant that I could then eat freely and enjoy our rich meals together. Now I am achy all the time and sluggish and uncomfortable in my own body. I want to be vital and active and am excited to start the process here.

Hi! I have recently relocated to Santa Rosa from North Central PA. I was born and raised in Solano County so not new to California but new to the area. I have been a member for quite some time; but come and go. I moved in with my boyfriend and well, let's just say that we are "nesting" and the weight has started to creep back up. I lost 20 pounds when I moved to PA and don't want to see the 2 pounds turn into 5 turn into 10 turn into 20+ :) I'm looking for like minded people to connect with and keep motivated. I can handle the healthy eating thing, turning off my "sweet channel" is actually easy. I find it harder to be active. I love walking so happy to be out of the snowy winters of the east. I'm looking for walking partners, motivational "kick in the ass" kind of people! I'm looking to start slowly, it's what works best for me. I also discovered basic yoga in PA and would love to get back into that as well. Other than that; I love to try out new recipes, recently started replacing butter with olive oil in all of my baking (really easy to do!), I love to read, go to the movies, spend a day out exploring a new area, home improvement, gardening, just a simple girl :)

Hi! I'm Kat and I've lived in Sonoma County my entire life. I live in Santa Rosa and have two active children, ages 9 & 5, my hubby and my cat. I've struggled with my weight most of my life and, right now, just want to be healthy. I'm trying to avoid all the health problems that hit obese people. I'm also looking for more self-confidence and to feel good again.

I'm looking forward to getting to know you!

Welcome!

I actually lived in Rancho Cordova before moving to sonoma county :)

There are lots of zumba and other workout dvds or maybe you can find a walking buddy in your area. Of course, if you're like me I need the accountability of someone else to stay motivated and on track!

Good luck :)

Hi, I'm Judy and moved to Sonoma in March 2011. My hubby is retired and we live in a senior mobile home park, but I'm still working, in Yountville at the Veterans Home. I came from the Sacramento region (Elk Grove). If anyone hears of Zumba coming to Sonoma or other Valley of the Moon towns, let me know! Right now the closest classes are in Petaluma. I don't want to join a gym so I'm looking for another type of venue.
I live out in the "sticks" so I have to drive everywhere. That's one thing I miss about Elk Grove; I lived in walking distance to a shopping area. But otherwise, Sonoma's a beautiful area and we are getting settled in.
Looking forward to Sparking in the Wine Country!

Hello,
My name is Arianna and Im a 49yr old who has way too much time on her hands and no get-up-and-go. lol.
Need to lose 30 to 40lbs. No time. Just want to lose a few. Husband decided to have us on the low/no carb diet. Im low carb hes no carb.
We started on April 1, 2011. So far we have each lost 7lbs. Not only am I trying to eat less junk but I like to ride my bike at least once a week. Unfortunately, I dont like to bike alone and most my neighbors dont ride bikes or they dont go far.

Hi, I teach two levels of Zumba: Zumba and Zumba Gold. Zumba Gold is for beginners and older adults that would enjoy a less vigorous workout and easier choreography and less impact but just as fun. My schedules are listed in my website: www.partywithanna.com.
Give it a try -- it's really fun!

Hi I moved from the southbay to Santa Rosa about 5 years ago and just started to feel "settled in" just a few years ago. Getting used to this slower pace of life and healthy living. I lost about 14 lbs since I moved here, mostly due to Zumba. Dancing has been a part of my life and I've managed to maintain that hobby all these years, taking dance lessons and dancing wherever I can. Now I teach Zumba about 7 times a week and I have not paid much attention to my weight. I try to eat healthy everyday, cooking from scratch and avoiding processed food, but I don't deprive myself -- pretty much eating whatever I want and trusting myself to make healthy food choices. Love Champagne! How can we not drink wine in this Wine Country! My Zumba classes are drop-ins and relatively small. I'm so fortunate to have a lot of nice people around me. I love teaching Zumba and sharing my passion of dance. I approach Zumba from a more holistic point of view -- besides cardio and losing calories, movement can heal and help us maintain our mobility and functional fitness. I'm utilizing my knowledge in Asian Bodywork and mind/body studies to create a one-of-a-kind Zumba class.
Joining Spark is giving me a lot of ideas on maintaining a healthy lifestyle -- good luck to everyone in reaching your goals!

Hi All!!

My name is Jamie and I am fairly new to Spark People. It has been great so far but I'm still getting the hang of it! I have a 13 year old son who is the light of my life and I am helping my boyfriend raise his 8 year old and 3 year old. I recently started biking (until the weather got bad) and am looking forward to getting in to that with the nice weather. Good luck to everyone on their journey! Say hello sometime! :)

Hi Everyone!

I live in Napa and am pretty new to California. Like some other people said, this was the closest team I could find. But it's nice to see that there are some people nearby. So Hi everyone!! :)

Hi Sonoma County sparkpeoples...I have been in this group for awhile now but have not been very active for some time...it would be nice if we could all reintroduce ourselves and tell us where you live in Sonoma County. I am Lydia and I live in Santa Rosa. I am a member of the YMCA and have lost at the most just over 100 pounds bur unfortunately gained back about half of it in the last year. Trying to get back into it and make my goal weight by next year. Now tell me about you.

I'm back!! I stepped away from spark people for a while in order to have another baby (now 7 months old)! He and his brother, 3 keep me crazy busy but I wouldn't have it any other way. I have returned to teaching aerobics and spin which is the only thing keeping me sane, lol! Anyway, it's time to get back on track and start holding myself accountable. I am currently at my pre pregnancy weight thanks to a dedication to exercise and clean eating during and after my pg but I have set a new goal for myself which is to be in the best shape of my life! I know SP will help me reach those goals. I'm looking forward to taking that journey will all of you! Hit it hard gang, 2011 is the year!!emoticon

HELP! I'M STUCK UP HERE IN THE BOONIES!

Just kidding, I actually love Cloverdale, very quiet town, nice people, just like my hometown in Missouri.

I'm the mom of a very "spirited" 2 yr old girl, the wife of a very funny man (pretty cute too IMO) and although those are just 2 of the many "hats" I wear, they are definately my most favorite, special and important ones. I love music, singing, road trips...in fact, a musical singing roadtrip would be my idea of a great day.

Anyway, lost 11 pounds so far w/ Spark, shooting for 22-ish, dropped the ball recently and now I'm really trying to get back on track. Glad to be on the team and hoping to make some new friends!

Hi Team!
I'm new to SparkPeople and I'm excited that there's a Sonoma County Group! How cool! I was born and raised in Healdsburg and I've recently moved back. I love being able to hike down to the river or up the mountain (Fitch) straight from my front door. Hoping to shed some of these "post wedding" pounds. Good luck with all of your goals! We can do it! :)

Glad to be part of the team. I'm a lifelong Santa Rosa area resident and looking forward to meeting some new like minded people in the area. Love to hike and hope to get a group together for Sunday Hikes in the area. Good luck to everybody.

Luck is when preparation meets opportunity.

Hi there Team. My name is Teri and I live in Windsor. At 38, I have two beautiful children (10/3) and one incredibly wonderful husband. I joined SP about a year ago but never got into the community aspect of it. I recently been pushing myself to get healthier and to lose some very hard pounds but realize I need help and support to stay motivated. I look forward to meeting some new friends and being involved with this team.

Hi everyone, I am Lydia. I was reading everyone's introductions and realized that I've never introduced myself to this spark team although I have been a member for almost a year. Sorry about that. I am 54 years old. I live in Santa Rosa. I lost my job a year ago last August and decided to turn a negative into a positive and joined the YMCA and started watching what I was eating. I found SparkPeople 11/08 and have utilized it in my goal to lose weight. I have had great success in little over a year having lost 95 pounds since I joined the gym and almost 90 pounds since joining SparkPeople. I have about 55 pounds to lose in order to make my goal weight. It has been more difficult as of late, but I will not give up until I get there. I have found that tracking my food intake and my workouts have been really helpful along with being able to use the recipe calculator to determine my recipe caloric values.

HI, I'm Maureen and live near The Veterens Buiding in Santa Rosa and close to Doyle Park. I'm 38, married with 3 kids ages 16, 8 (with asperger's syndrome and adhd) and 7.

I've lived in Santa Rosa for 2 yrs but didn't get out much b/c I've had 2 major operations and had been either really sick or recovering. I've gained 50 pounds in three years due to my health problems and medication and am now ready to lose it.

I joined the Sparks community last july and lost 13 pounds but finding it difficult to maintain on my own. I'm ready to join this team, participate and be active on this site and I hope with other members that live near me.

Unfortunately, I lack motivation and self starting when it comes to exercise, so if anyone would like to join me on this quest in person, please send me a message.

Okay, so I've put on some pounds.

My name is Jeney, and I've put on some pounds.

I am 38. I've lived in SR all my life, except for the ten years I lived in Washington state. I've been married for 14 years and I have 6 kids - ages 4 to 17.

I was painfully thin until my mid twenties. Then, when I'd put on a few pounds, I'd eat right and they'd drop off. Easy peasy.

Not so much anymore. I eat right (I know how to eat right!) and all that does it make me gain a little more slowly. When I tell someone this, they ask how old I am and then say, "Ooohhhh, yeah. That happens when you get a little older". After hearing that 10 or so times, I figured there must be something to it!

So it comes down to exercise and that is where I struggle. But I'm going to really dig in and change that. Starting in a few minutes, when I grab my husband's ipod and go for a walk.

I weigh about 145. I don't have a scale, but I feel about as fat as I did the last time I weighed this much. I'd like to get to 130 again. I'd be thrilled with 125, but let's not get crazy.

Off for a walk! Even with my hair looking *like this*.

Hello there, my name is Hellen and I am 38 years old. I live in Wikiup, am married and have two teenage boys (one is mine and one is my stepson). This has made keeping weight off difficult. I am looking to lose about 55 pounds and spark people seems like a great tool. I have been keeping a food diary, but this is much better. I am currently on a four week sabbatical so I am hoping to get a really good jumpstart before I have to go back to work. I like the idea of putting myself first for once. I feel a little obsessive right now - will it always be this way?? I just started this past Sunday.

My name is Mike Abegglen, I live in Santa Rosa near the fairgrounds. I have been married for 13 years to the same beautiful woman. We have 3 kids with one more on the way, any day now. I am looking to lose 60 lbs by May next year. I don't keep track of my weight only how well my clothing fits. I tell you it is getting better. I started working out again about 4 months ago and I found this site through my dad in Florida. I looking to share this experience with others who are going through it.

Hi Jessica and WELCOME!!! I live in Cotati and my kids attend school at Tech High at SSU-- small world! After Sparks helping me lose 80 pounds, I assure you it isn't a "spam" site, but truly understand your concerns as I had them as well at the start.

Look around, check stuff out, and ask if you have questions or needs.

Again, welcome!!!

Hi all!. My name is Jessica. I started spark people last week, but wan't sure if it was a "spam" site. Looks like there is quite a few people from santa rosa and that made me feel a lot better.

Now to the weight. I have 85-100 pounds I need to lose. I really think this network will work well for me because I could really use support from local people. maybe we can even meet up at Spring Lake for a walk sometime?

For the other stats. I have one small daughter. I'm a full time single mom and a full time student at SSU (graduating in December).

Now where do I go from here?

Hi I'm Ashley I live in Sonoma, I'm 22, and I honestly am trying to get to my goal weight by my birthday in June, but the system wouldnt let me make such a big goal, but I am unemployed right now and have nothing else to do other than walk and do pilates all day- so why not, it can happen. I would love to meet ppl who like to walk and do some walking, I am running out of music to listen to :)

Hi (hope I am doing this right!) my name is Angelina and I live in Santa Rosa. I just turned 33 and am trying to get off the stubborn weight I slowly accumulated since being in a relationship that started 4 years ago. We were married in September and I was able to drop the first 12lbs for the wedding and keep it off (wedding was in September) but I'm hoping that the rest will follow this year!

I love playing water polo over at Finley on Sundays (when the weather is warm!), have a membership over at 24-Hour Fitness and love running and hiking outdoors. I am ALWAYS looking for workout partners so hit me up if you ever want to get together or need some extra motivation or support!

I'm also going to be in my best friend's wedding this coming June, which is how I ended up on here - by her recommendation. She lives in Georgia and I live in Cali and at least we can find a way to support each other via online, so I think this is great!!

Hello, everyone! My name is Esther and I've just moved to Santa Rosa after spending two years on Catalina Island running an aquarium. I'm 24 (25 in September) and a native Oregonian. I like being outside (I've spent 3 of the past 4 years living at camps), in the water (I'm a certified Divemaster), and I'm hopelessly addicted to the feeling I get when I'm running. I'm excited to get to the know the area and the people!

Brave girls can do anything.

Hello, I posted on the introduction section, but I thought I would also say "hello" here. I am 32 (almost 33) married with a 5 yr old son. I lost a lot of weight about 10 years ago, and have just now started to really put it back on. Need to nip my out of control eating habits in the bud!

Hi everyone,
Just a quick intro of myself. I'm 32, married with two small kids - ages 3 and 1. I was encouraged to join Spark People by a co-worker who has found a lot of success here. I have 100+ pounds to lose and look forward to having support online. My husband and I both grew up in Santa Rosa, moved to Marin and as we've had our children we've progressively moved more north (Petaluma then Santa Rosa). It's nice (and scary) to back in our hometown but I love having the family support. All that being said, I just want to be around for my kids and feel healthier than I feel now.

Hello everyone. My name is Mary, I've lived in Santa Rosa since 1974. I'm currently single, have raised 4 sons (19,22,25,28), used to love to quilt, and my current mode of getting back into a healthier state is walking... lots of walking! Latest noticeable payoff - after a month or so, I put my chaps on yesterday and didn't have to shimmy the zipper to a thinner part of my thigh to make the ends meet and zip them down!!! I may not have lost much weight yet, but I guess things are firming up just a little! Yay!

Hey Neighbors,
I'm Leticia from Santa Rosa. I am married with 2 sons. I have enjoyed being on SP and meeting lots of new people. When I was looking for a new workout I found Zumba Fitness & loved it so much, I became an instructor. I enjoy sharing what I have learned from SP and Zumba Fitness with others. If you are ever in the mood to "shake it" come join my Zumba Fitness class...9am Saturdays. Keep Sparking!!emoticon

Welcome, Patrick! I'm glad you've joined us.

You're right, we DO live in a great area for outdoor exercise. Hopefully you'll be out shagging flies with the kids come spring.

My name is Patrick and I'm post 20 something, pre 30 something and I'm enjoying life greatly.

The only hitch is that my energy level has fallen way below my three young kids and hot wife, who has gotten into incredible shape the last year or so. Also, there is history of heart disease and diabetes in my family and so it's time to eating with an awareness of that fact.

I used to be in decent shape, able to roll out of bed and run 5 miles or bike 50. That was a couple years ago, however, and now I'm 30 pounds overweight.

I'm enjoying being back to riding my road bike on a trainer and tracking my nutrition thru the site.

Here in Santa Rosa, we do live in a beautiful place with above average access to the outdoors. Come late Spring, I hope to be outside a lot again.

Mary in Petaluma here.

I'm separated (going through a divorce). I have two kids, one son who's totally disabled and lives with his dad, and a feisty little red-headed angel girl in Heaven.

I'm in a bad way right now. I'm almost 250 lbs. overweight and nearly inert from stiff joints. I'm trying to climb out of the tiger-trap I've fallen into, and it isn't easy.

I'm so grateful to have found Spark and the wonderful, supportive people here.
