Hey Ladonna!

I've got about 100lbs to lose overall, so we're in a similar boat. Feel free to add me as a friend here on Sparkpeople - I'm brand spankin' new to the area and I'd love to meet some new folks!

Geared up and gung-ho for my first 90-day challenge. Walking 5-days a week and eating sensibly. Gonna do this!

Hello:

I have been on sparkpeople for a couple of years but not very active. BUT I am ready to change that and get going so I am re-activating myself to this. I am very overweight, tired, run-down and hate the way I look. I hate my life, so I am up for making SP a big part of my everyday life. I live in Dixon. I am married and have one daughter. I homeschool. I am currently looking for work and have an interview on Monday, Nov. 19, Very excited.

Also would like to connect with people in my area who are working toward same goals as me. I need to lose 160lbs. Wouldn't that be wonderful. I need some good health and some energy. About 6 weeks ago I fell and broke my ankle so its been a little hard to work out. But now I need to get my eating under control more than ever. Tracking my calories through SP is a must now and I want to track my fitness as well. I recently joined a gym and am doing strength training along with the bike machine.

Hope you and I can be sources of encouragement.

It is pretty here. They recently rebuilt the 1st Avenue bridge between Rock Falls and Sterling and it is gorgeous - great for a nice, scenic walk. Hopefully some folks in the area will get in touch - I'd love to meet other Spark people in the area!

I don't live near you but it is a beautiful area. My husband and I ride a motorcycle and are in that area often. If no one on Spark is near you maybe put up a posting at the library or local gym or even grocery store. Maybe you can find like minded people that way. Good luck!

I recently moved to Rock Falls and work in Sterling. I'd love to chat with others in the area and local support for my weight loss and fitness efforts. Anyone out there near me?
