Hello, everyone! My name is Shannon. I just moved to the Quad Cities in May. I moved here from NorthCentral Wisconsin (and a short stay in Michigan with family). I have yet to meet anyone here outside of work! I'm very relieved to find that there are others in the QC's like me. I have just started with SparkPeople. I just completed my first week. Needless to say, the weekend didn't go nearly as well as the week did! Although, I did better at the gym on Saturday and Sunday than I did during the week! I guess I need to find a happy medium somewhere in there!

JJ, thanks for your suggestions on eating out. I took your advice and searched for information on-line about the nutrition value of local restaurant foods. This really helped.

Hello Nancy, I just seen your post. I always ask the place if they have a nutritional chart or if you know that you are going to that place ahead of time I have found some of the website for the place and decided what I was going to eat ahead of time. Then tracking it is even easier as you can enter the information from that. Hope this helps but if you have any futher questions feel free to ask me.

JJ

Hello all, I am in Muscatine & I've been off, on, off, & off this spark plan for a year or two now. I enjoy working out but.... Well everyone has "buts" mine are pretty much the same :) family, work, LAZY!! We recently got a Crossfit box here in town & I've got things at work under control for the most part so I'm focused on getting in better shape. I really refocused around the end of last year, I purchased a new scale & instantly gained about 30lbs! I knew the old one was not the most accurate but when 302 came up on the read out of the new one I was pretty surprised. My wife wanted to get a treadmill so that she could start to walk in the evenings so we got a treadmill & I started logging miles every morning. I now have started to go to CrossFit 2 days a week to work on strength & flexibility. I've got a long road but I've got a super supportive wife & I'm fortunate to own my own business so I can make sure I get my workouts in when I have time, I don't "Have" to man a desk all day on the clock. Good luck to you all I'll try to keep you posted on my progress & check on everyone else.

Eat right today, all you can control is right now.

Hi Dorothy! I'm Nancy and just joined the Spark program too. However, I am 64 and in no shape to run. It's all I can do to get myself on my treadmill. There are several book club teams to join in this Sparks program. Snoop around to find one that might appeal to you. I love to read...everything, and have found great book reviews on some of these sites. Meanwhile, focus on that upcoming wedding. Best wishes to you and your soon-to-be husband from me in Coal Valley.

Hi! I'm Nancy from Coal Valley and just joined SP a few weeks ago. Besides forcing myself to exercise every day, my biggest challenge is tracking foods I eat at some of our local restaurants. How do you do that? I try to order healthier meals, but when I enter the closest items that I find on a search I know the documentation isn't accurate.

Hi everyone!
I just joined the team, but would love to get to know some folks in the area with similar goals to my own.
I'm Dorothy, 28 and getting married soon! I'm happy with my body, but know I could be healthier. I'd love to find someone who lives in or near Rock Island who would like to start running with me. Even just a walking partner would be great, but someone who can consistently meet up to be active and chat.
I'd also be interested in joining or starting a book club, if anyone's interested in that as well.
Let me know if this sparks anyone's interest!

Hi My name is April. I am a 31 year old stay at home mom with 4 children. I am new to this team but doesn't look like to many are active here. I live in Bellevue Iowa and need to lose over 100lbs. I guess I can just look at it like my children with baby steps. I am hoping to get some support from this site and would be great to have some people close by with the same goals to lean on for support. Have a great week everyone and I hope you all meet your goals for this week. emoticon

My name is Vanessa, and I am also 31 years old. I live in Moline and I am a member of the Y over there. I am the busy mother of 4 children and I work full time so finding time for me is few and far in between. I used Sparkpeople a couple years ago and I lost about 40 pounds, I was the healthiest I had even been in my life. After my mom passed away in July of 2010 I gained about 60 pounds and I am the heaviest I have ever been. I have just found my way back to Sparkpeople and am ready to start living my life to my full potential again. I am looking for someone to walk/jog with. I really want to learn to run emoticon , but I cant run for more than a block or so without getting winded, so I need someone that wont leave me in the dust. emoticon

Well, my name is Miriam. I'm 31 and live in Davenport. I just got my master's in mental health counseling and am currently looking for a job. I really like music (playing and listening). I also like knitting and reading. I do actually enjoy exercising, but I don't do it as much as I'd like.

I have been on Spark for over three years and have only gained weight. It's been really hard for me to put everything together and succeed, but I feel I am getting closer. I'm trying to adopt a more clean eating lifestyle, and I think this will help tremendously.

I have a membership to the Y and work out at the one in Bettendorf. I also live close to the Duck Creek bike path, so I walk there occasionally.

I'm looking forward to getting to know all of you and build a local community of support.

Hello! I started this sticky topic so we can all get to know each other. This team has been dormant for some time, and I know there are some of us who are still active on the site. So let's introduce ourselves. You can share anything you'd like!
