Welcome to the new people. I look forward to getting to know you better as you post more about yourself. It was great to meet some of the team members this morning. I hope more of you will join us next time. I hope everyone has a great weekend and makes great progress this next week.

Yes, Omaha has is the "good life". I'm glad you joined the Omaha team. We meet in the August chat room. No one posts on a daily basis so there is no stress there. Please stop by and let us know how you're doing once in awhile.

Six of us from the team just met at Summer Kitchen this morning. It was fun to meet everyone. It was felt that more get-togethers should be planned.

Have a good day.

Hi Jenna! I actually have a membership to Urban Active. I just joined Weight Watchers and Spark people. I am looking for someone to work out with or even walk with now that it's getting nice out!

Hey guys!! :) I'm Jenna and I LOVE Omaha. I moved here about 3 years ago from NJ and can't believe how much better the quality of life is out here!
I know we are all looking to lose some weight and have a couple 7 day free passes for Urban Active gym at 144th & Center. Anyone interested?

Welcome Jac. Congratulations on your upcoming wedding. NO WAY would I wear a bikini.... and certainly not at my wedding.... even if I had one! You are a brave one. Anyway.... some of us are going to meet on Sat am Aug 20th at the Summer Kitchen on West Maple. Stop by the Getting Together thread in the General Discussion forum and let us know if you can come so we'll save room for you at the table.

Enjoy SP. It's great!

Hi everyone!

I am Jac (Jacqueline). I am from Minnesota, but I have lived in Omaha since 2005. I currently attend UNO majoring in Behavioral Health and Minoring in American Sign Language. I joined SP because I am engaged and planning a wedding for next May. We are getting married at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. This means two things: 1. I have to wear a bikini in public as well as in front of 40+ friends and family members. 2. I am going to need to seriously amp up my energy level in order to really enjoy our vacation.

So here I am. I have been on this site for a few weeks now. I have almost lost 10lbs. already. I am kicking my programs butt, even after a week of serious illness.

Nice to meet everyone!

"
I thank God for this most
amazing day;
for the leaping greenly
spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky;
and for everything
which is natural, which is
infinite, which is yes".

Welcome JAGRIF. Sorry I'm a bit slow on welcoming you. I just was at a 5 day conference where we did not have internet. SparkPeople is a great site for tools and articles on healthy living. I too like to walk. I live in Africa on the equator and it's our cool season right now. I'm from Omaha though and will be there on vacation THIS week!

Where are you in Africa? My daughter is in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She was in Namibia for a year and has traveled to many other countries in Africa. She teaches and is adopting 2 Ethiopian baby boys who have amazing stories and would surely be dead if she had not taken them They are my precious jewels. My doctor will not allow me to travel there because I am immunosuppressed, and she cannot bring them here until both adoptions are final and she gets visa, so I haven't seen them yet. Can't wait!! My daughter in Omaha is so busy that I rarely see her. She doesn't like the phone. She likes to text, so that is how we communicate. What do you do in Africa?

Hi,
I''m Margey. I live just south of Bellevue. Moved here with my Air Force ex-husband in 1982. Stayed here when we got divorced because I was so close to graduating from UNO. Worked for the IRS for many years, then the Post Office for a few. Retired on disability in 1998. Have 2 grown daughters, one here in Omaha, one in Ethiopia adopting 2 Ethiopian baby boys. I enjoy Christian music, knitting and crocheting, and reading. I just joined SP and got the book. So far, I'm loving it all.

Kelly, thanks for introducing yourself. Mom-of-Six (Chris) is also a pharmacist. She posts in the Chatting in the Shade -- July! thread. Each month the name for our chat thread changes. I am a nurse. Graduated from Immanuel Hospital in 1970 when it had a three year diploma nursing program. After that I went back to UMMC College of Nursing to get my BSN. Please particpate in other threads in the Omaha team. We're trying to revive the team as we always have lots of new members, but not a lot of activity going on.

Hi, my name is Kelly.
I joined SP in June and am really excited about everything this site has to offer!
I am 51 and married to Ed. We have 3 kids - Sarah (18), Cole (15) and Kyle (13).
I am a Pharmacist and have worked the 3rd shift for 20 years. It has helped me to get more time with my children as they are growing but it has been hard on the body.
I've decided that it's time to quit "watching what I'm eating" and to actively take control and lose some weight and get my body back in shape. emoticon

Sparkpeople is a great resource. The tools here help you loose the weight slowly and keep it off. I recommend surfing around the site and getting familiar with everything. If you have any questions let us know.

Hi.

I am my own worst enemy and I am hoping that this community will help me get away from myself long enough to be happy with my body again.

I have a 3 month old baby girl (lost 10 lbs the first 7 months pregnant, then the last 2 I gained nearly 40 lbs). I hardly ate anything the last 2 months, so my husband and I were shocked... until my water broke for 11 hours. Then we understood why I gained so much weight.

My real goal is to lose 40 lbs by January 1, 2012. I am being a bit hard on myself because I need to be.

Nice to meet you all,

Bethany

Hi, I am re-starting this journey, I have a lot of weight to lose, but am slowly working towards my goal, have lost 50 pounds, and this is the next step, to start tracking my food, and being more accountable. I live in Omaha with my husband, one son still at home while he attends college, and our two baby rottweillers. My other two children have given me 4 grandchildren that are the joy of my life, so glad to be here, and will start this journey now.

Good morning, all, I joined Sparkpeople a few months ago, but never really got involved, since I was active on another site. Coming back now to really explore all the offerings of this site, including recipes, workout plans, etc.

I live in the 168th and Giles area, and currently work out at Aspen Active at 180th and Q.

Looking forward to making some local friends!

Hi...again...
I was on this site a year or so ago and disappeared due to a pregnancy (I'm high risk so bed rest was a possibility). I have dropped a lot of weight since the pregnancy (now under my pre pregnancy weight) but have a long way to go to be where I would feel comfortable in my own skin. Hubby & I recently joined the Y, so I'm excited at the prospects of that.

Welcome aboard!

I've already lost 130lbs just using the tools and tips that the website provides. :) While I still have a lot to loose it's definitely the first step in the right direction.

Play around with things, figure out how things work, and if you need assistance just ask. There are plenty of people (both in this team and in others) who are more than happy to help!

Hi fellow Sparkies! I am new to this site, but old to dieting. Feels like I have been on one diet or another most of my life. About six months ago I decided to stop the dieting cycle of sadness, failure and self-recrimination and just plain change my life. Now I am 45 pounds lighter, have a regular workout schedule, and am setting a much better example for my two awesome boys. I still have about 40 pounds to go, and decided to try Spark People for encouragement, and to help me keep track of my days better. So far, it has been a very uplifting, positive experience that has already shown me a few (and not so few) things that I could be doing better...as well as some new goals to work toward.

In the depth of winter, I finally learned that within me there lay an invincible summer.

Hello everyone. My name is Pam and I've lived in Omaha my entire life. I will turn 50 in September and my goal to lose 45lbs is set for my Birthday...I have about 6 months. My weight hasn't been drastic but about 3lbs per year for 15 years - how it adds up. I've tried many times to get it off but get discouraged and quit, it's just so hard. But, we're taking our 17 and 19 year old kids to Hawaii June 1st and I really want to do the activities that require physical ability. Right now I would be riding a bus with old people seeing the sites. I want to be with my husband and kids hiking, ziplining you know all the fun stuff. I'm very motivated and need all your help keeping there haha. Hope to hear from you all.

Hello - This is my first full day on Spark People. I love what the website has to offer. I am a 50 year old born and raised in Omaha and have been at my current weight for some time with little or no success in weight loss. I am looking for that extra little bit of motivation to get me on track to losing weight. I feel good about starting my work week with lots of motivation and hope to see some positive results. emoticon

Hey there PrettyBlue,
I don't do a lot of blogging either but your post really hit home. People can be so cruel sometimes, can't they? But then, on the other hand, there are also some true angels out there as well. I wish you good luck with your new start!

Hi, I am Connie. I am new to this site. It is really great all the things I can keep track of and not jump from site to site. I am 56 years old and just went through surgery to remove my gall bladder and repair a hiatal hernia. I am feeling much better and the surgery jump started me by losing 15 pounds during my recovery. (can't eat much after a hiatal hernia repair!) I was recommended to go to Sparkpeople to continue my weight loss and after so many years of failed diets, I think this is the one that is going to keep me motivated. Congratulations to all of you who have already lost weight. I look forward to hearing and seeing your posts! emoticon

HI! I'm Becca and I'm new. My trainer told me I have to start using Spark to do my food journals (I was just writing it down on paper, but he wants me to track more than just calories now).

I'm 29, I'm engaged and we have a cat and a house, no kids, music major in college but now i process health claims. I've lost 75 pounds so far. I work out with Marty Wolff (http://www.realitywellnessinc.com) and I'm currently training for Trek Up The Tower (3 weeks! Eek!)

Hello all,
I am very new to the whole forums and blogs thing, but I do like to talk a lot. I joined Spark People becuase I'm tired of always being looked at funny. Or having people say "I don't understand how people can let themselves go like that" behind my back. I've been hearing it for years now and I'm done. I am looking for a Spark Buddy, so if anyone is interested, feel free to send me a shout. Have a good day everyone!

RicaTaylor, Welcome to the team & Sparkpeople!

Go to your Sparkpage, click on "Edit your Sparkpage" in upper right hand corner, then when the edit page comes up, scroll down. It is usually below the Spark Teams icons.

Hope this helps.

Hi I like this a Spark team in my Neighborhood. My name is Eureka and I currently weigh way over what I use to. I am 231 lbs. I got up to 240 after the holidays! I have changed my diet and lost 9lbs. I want to eventually reach 125 lbs. My curent goal is to lose at least 50lbs by my daughter's wedding come Sept. 2011. Please help to encourage me. I am trying to always chart my daily meals and weight. I would be pleased to join this team. Thank You By the way how does one post the weight scale I see on some of your posts?
