Caroline - welcome to our team! You aren't far from me, I live on Norton St., which is off of Club, comes out across from the Tripp's. There is a meetup group that walks a couple times per week at Duke's East Campus. I'm also about to start walking on Tues/Thurs at 5:30 (same place, Duke's East Campus). Let me know if you are interested in joining us.

Welcome, Caroline! I just took a look at your blog; what a great tool to share your weight loss journey with friends! I'm not very regular about writing in my blog here on SP - I'm impressed that you keep up with it so nicely. Glad you joined us here on the Durham NC team, and best of luck as you continue reaching your goals!

Hi everyone! I've been using Spark for almost a month, but haven't checked out the message boards yet. I am 25, in my last semester of law school at UNC, and live in Durham right next to Northgate Park, off of 85 (a mile from Northgate Mall). I am always looking for people to exercise with. I have a blog at http://carolinescommitment.blogspot.com and you can email me from there if you want to get in touch with me. I look forward to meeting some of you!

Deanna - not sure about Curves, I know that there are lots of folks on the site that use Curves, but personally I've never been there.

Hi Marilyn and all,

I, too, live near Duke East Campus. I'm in the Old West Durham neighborhood near Oval Drive Park. I'm getting more diligent about a walking habit; I've bookmarked your meetup.com page and hope to join you on Thursday or Saturday! --Marsha

Welcome to the team Marilyn and JeanLeeAnn!

Marilyn - can you tell me a little more about that walking group that meets at the Duke wall? I live in Trinity Park, which borders Duke's East Campus.

JeanLeeAnn - welcome back to NC! I am originally from the Atlanta area, born and raised. I've been in NC for 7 years now. I still have a son in Alpharetta, and one in Dallas, GA.

I just joined this group. I've been a member for about a year. I haven't made much progress but I am working to change that.

I recently relocated to Chapel Hill from Atlanta. Its good to be back in NC and find some local sparkers. :) emoticon

I really hope to make some progress this time around

Greetings Vanessa!

I am looking for someone to work out with in Durham. I belong to the YMCA downtown Durham across from Marriott. Call me 971-5650

Where I am today is where my mind put me.
Where I will be tomorrow is where my mind put me.
When I look down at myself the only thing that causes me to look the way I look is my mind and my will....

I live in the Trinity Park, near Northgate as well. I work from home, but travel 2-3 days a week. I'm trying to lose weight, but I have a sneaking suspicion that part of the problem is that I don't eat enough. Strange, huh?
