Hi Olivia. It's nice to meet you. I'm in SE MI, near Novi, if you're familiar with the area. I know what you mean about having trouble sticking with the whole diet/lifestyle change thing. I'm trying to get back on track again, even though it's the holidays time and that makes it more difficult. I also need to find physical things to do, within reason, since I had back surgery. Anyway, I just wanted to let you know that there are others like us out there and I'm glad you decided to come to this team. Welcome and much luck to you. emoticon emoticon

Hello! I'm Olivia. I'm originally from Traverse City, but I now live, work, teach, and go to graduate school in Marquette.

I have been a member of SparkPeople since 2008, but I consistently stop doing it for various reasons, generally related to mental health. I'm hoping to make it such a part of my life that when things get busy again, I will not be able to neglect my physical well being! I know from experience that I need the physical activity in the winter, so I'm starting again to get me through this ridiculous weather.

I'm looking for friends with the hope that I can feel more connected to this thing and, therefore, more likely to continue.

Olivia

Hi Gean!!

Wow, I know as a mom its tough finding time for yourself. I am doing a 5% Challenge for summer right now. There are a bunch of teams and we compete. For instance, we just started up again Saturday. Each team is a separate team & has their own team to post on. We "flew" to Tahiti. We used exercise minutes as air miles. Together we raced against other teams to keep adding up to 4,116 miles - 43 of us did it in 3 days. There are other small challenges, too! It's nice to know that you're doing something to help your team that is good for you too. I am currently in week 2 of P90X. What a program, but if you have small children, it may be difficult for you to find the time.

You could still join the challenge as far as I know. Sparkmail me if you want to know how.

Hello everyone
I am from Midland MI. I currently weigh 184 I have been stuck at this weight for about 5 weeks now. I have slowly lost my motivation. I was doing really great for about 3.5 months. Does anyone have any suggestions. I work m-w and also attend college full time two wonderful children having a hard time finding me time. Well I would like to wish everyone else luck on the journey of life.

Hi everyone, I am new to this team, but not too new to Sparks. I started in Jan. of 09, was pretty active until June. Then - I moved, had some more medical issues, got new meds and more weight! As of Jan. 2010 I'm back - with a vengence! I love Sparks and I am hoping to find someone close to me.
I have been a widow for 18 years, my husband passed away from Leukemia. I have two wonderful children, a boy and a girl; three grandsons, two granddaughters, and another due in April.
I live in Corunna, a little town between Lansing & Flint. I have two cats. I love to sew, garden (when I am able), x-stitch, word search, wood working, and I have a relay team for the American Cancer society.
I guess that is probably enough to digest for my first meet & greet.
glad to be here.

Hi Starfish8213,
Glad you joined the group and I hope you have great success. I have never heard of Herbal Magic. Is it a program or a supplement you take? Having a good meal plan to follow that allows for foods you enjoy is very important.

Hey everyone! Sorry I joined but didn't introduce myself...

My name is Kim and I'm from Algonac... I work in Flint. (The drive isn't bad... the gas guzzling beautiful machine I drive is... lol...)

I have 2 children, both girls... ages 4 and 6.

I've been on this weight loss thing for a while... but I've really only actively tried losing weight for about a year and half over the last 3 years.

I've lost 100 pounds... but of that I've gained about 40 back... and recently lost about 8.

I'm upset with myself but all the while happy I only gained 40 back.

So I'm at it again... unfortunately time and money isn't available for me to utilize a gym... so I'm stuck just eating better and doing what little fitness I can.

The program I follow is from Herbal Magic which used to be in Marysville, they closed Dec 08. But because my calorie count is really low, SP says I don't eat enough... when in actuality... I eat a ton of food and often times can't get everything I'm supposed to eat every day in. And I drop weight like no other when I do follow program 100%.

So that's a little bit about me... I'm on yahoo at Ivyk01 if anyone wants to chat!

~~~Kim~~~
Gonna lose 100 lbs... again!

Hi All,
I'm from Walled Lake, but used to live in White Lake and before that Highland and I grew up in Waterford. I guess that says I don't get around much. Have a great day!

Hello all I am Shannon. I currently live in Minnesota right now. We are moving back to Michigan next month on the fifth. We will be living in Brooklyn. I am very excited about going home to Michigan. I was born and raised there. I can not wait to move because I will be doing weight watchers with my mother in law.

Hi everyone! I'm Tracey and I live in Hudson. It's close to Adrian and Hillsdale. Kinda half way between both. I'm going to be 48 in Febuary. I have been a member of SP for a couple of years now. I love this site. I have done well with losing weight but had a bad year last year and gained it all back. I look to make 2009 a good year and lose that stubborn weight, once and for all!!

Thank you both for the warm welcome. I love sparkpeople and I hope to be able to make lots of friends in my area. I already can't wait for Spring and Winter has barely started. I've thought a dozen times about moving elsewhere, but it takes a lot to figure out where you want your life to truly begin. I'm learning that life begins now, and that everything falls into place as it is supposed to. Thank you for being here as part of my weight loss journey.

Theresa,
I love being in the U.P. but I can imagine that the winters are very harsh. Just stay motivated, because in the spring and summer you are in the perfect place to stay active and enjoy nature.

Welcome, Theresa! I'm sure it feels like the middle of nowhere! Is that a military base?

I'm sure it's lonely too, with all of the snow this year.

Good luck on your goals!!

My name is Theresa and I am looking for new friends. I live in between Marquette and Escanaba on KI Sawyer. If you know anything about the UP then you know that it can get lonely if you move to a place out in the middle of nowhere by accident.

Hi
my name is Rhonda and I live in the eastern UP. I've struggled all my life with this misery and I'm taking the steps to change my life, health, and perspective. I've tried so many things but the only thing that seems to work for my body chemistry is low carb. I can definitely use all the encouragement you all can muster.

Hi-I'm Judi. I live in Walled Lake. I haven't always lived in Michigan, I'm an east coast transplant. I've been on many "diets", but in the last year, I've decided to change my thought process and change my lifestyle. So most days, I'm exercising and planning on what I will eat. I'm 61 and recently stopped working.

You can't get the brass ring on the merry go round if you don't reach for it. Go for it. I know you can!

Hi everybody,

I'm Jannisse and I live in Holland. I grew up in Free Soil (the person who lives in Scottville will know where that's at). I'm married and have two teenagers in the house. I am recently unemployed and undergoing the stress of job-hunting.

I've been a Spark person for about two weeks now. So far, so good!

Hi, my name is Tracy and I live in SW Michigan in a rural farming community along the shores of Lake Michigan.

I have struggled with my weight my entire adult life. A few years ago, I lost 40 lbs. with the assistance of a doctor and have since gained back between 15-20 lbs. I really think because I lost the weight rather quickly, that I didn't really change how or what I eat. I like what I see at SparkPeople because I'm actually making balanced food choices...not just eating a bag of popcorn for lunch.

I want to lose the weight and gain a healhty life style. I want to be a positive role model for my kids (who are very picky eaters) and teach them how to make good choices along the way.
Excited to join with others from the great state of Michigan on this journey!

Hey, I'm Shaya I live in southwest Michigan, in a little town called Stevensville. I live with my husband of almost 10 years and two sons 7 & 4.

I have been over weight for my entire adult life. I'm 5'6" tall and at my heaviest I was 210. I am now 176.2 as of yesterday (7-22-08) I would like to be 150, but I think maintaining 155 is more ideal. So I have 21lbs to go, but its also maintaining that, that I'm worried about.

Hi Tracy. This is quite the tourist town. It is hard sometimes in the summer to want to go to work every day because there are so many fun summer things to do here. But one Labor Day hits and is over it is a ghost town here...I love it! It can be hard getting around town in the summer time with all the visitors.

Congrats on your weight loss! You are doing great!
I also have one of those WW scales and I have a love-hate relationship with it...ha-ha. It is very reliable...which I love. Keeps me honest!

We are pretty well known here because we are such a large farm. It was finished in 03 so we have been here about 5 years. The property belonged to a well known farmer in the area so most people associate the land with him. Tell you Mom that I am north of Quick Rd. She will probably know where that is.

Harbor is one of the prettiest little towns I have ever seen. It is straight out of a movie/magazine. The houses and lawns are always perfect. We have soooo many tourists in the summer that it makes it almost impossible to go downtown. I usally avoid it in the summer because parking is frustrating. I do walk my dogs down there a lot in the summer. I live only 1.5 miles from town. Let me know if you are ever in the area. And keep wearing that lousy Tshirt! emoticon

i've never been to Harbor Springs my mother went and all she bought me was a lowzy T shirt!!!lol it has harbor springs on it so i feel connected to ya'll! my mom is actually going there for 2 weeks to visit some former chelsea natives that live on a lake up there
Simplynic- is your farm well known around there? I should ask her friends if they've ever seen it. my mom says it nice up there. I remember Charlevoix too used to drive through there on our way to our cottage in the swanky old town of Baldwin.

Bought a cool scale from walmart. weight watchers brand it calculates wt, bmi, body fat %, water % and bone mass for those with bone density issues. the other features are cool. I hope it helps when the wt loss seems slow but the other #s may be improving. trying to add a lotof strength training to my week hop eit pays off

hear my music know my mood
