So good to see all the new Cary team members (including myself)! This is so exciting. Hope I don't irritate you all with my blogs, but this is it - my change is here and I'm totally excited and will encourage anyone to be their best.

Hi, Elizabeth! Welcome to Cary Sparkers! Hope you will enjoy SparkPeople as much as we do! Once you learn your way around SP, tracking everything becomes second nature and a whole lot of fun. But the best part is all the information, encouragement and support you get from your fellow Sparkers!

Looking forward to getting to know you!

Pat

Blessings,
Pat

Hi Elizabeth and welcome to the team. We're talking about doing a meet up soon...check out the thread "Ideas for a Meet-up" or something like that. We'd love to really get this group going. Heather is being a great leader.

HI everyone, thought I would try this for motivation, a concrete way to track my progress and have the support of others. This is new for me. I'm hoping to work toward a healthy exercise/activity "routine"... as a single mom, solo family law attorney its hard to find the time...so hopefully with the support of others that will become easier and just part of my lifestyle!

Hi! Welcome to the team! I think you'll enjoy the area once the weather gets a little nicer. It does make it easier and more interesting to get outside when we have nice weather.

Let us know if there's anything you need!

Hello! Welcome new Cary Sparkers! It seems like only a few of us post very regularly, but maybe that's because everyone is out on the beautiful trails around town! I've only lived in NC just short of 3 years, but its a beautiful, friendly place.

Feel free to jump right in and post whatever is on your mind!

Pat

Blessings,
Pat

I just joined sparkpeople yesterday and and have a goal of losing about 30-40 lbs. I have a very sedentary job and have a hard time getting motivated to do anything when I get home at night and weekends involved running errands and doing chores. This is a great place to live. Lake Crabtree is in this area and has boats for rent during the spring and summer. I am looking forward to that - getting outside and being near water motivates me!

HI. I am new to Sparkpeople and just noticed that there is a Cary club. That is so cool. I live in Cary over near the new Fresh Market on Cary parkway. Would love to meet others for motivation. Need all the motivation and support I can get. Can't wait to hear from y'all. emoticon

I just saw the Cary team today. Does not look very active but we could try to make it more so.
I have lived in Cary 15 plus years. My kids all graduated high school here, and 3 of the 4 graduated college at Chapel Hill.
I love living here and would be happy to share information any time.

You're absolutely right. I admire your enthusiasm. If you have questions about Cary and the whole Triangle area, I'd be glad to try to point you to answers or answer your questions. I've lived in this area since 1980, starting out in Raleigh when I went to graduate school at NC state. I moved to Cary in 1989 when I bought my first house. We're at different places in our life stories and in our steps towards healthy living, (always remember, it's a lifestyle change not a diet) but let me know what you need and I'll help out where I can. I'm good at encouragement.

Cheers,
Joan

Thanks so much for the welcome. I am not very familiar with Raleigh as of yet so maybe I will try to drum up some interest with this group. I am sure that has been done over and over but, what do I have to lose? emoticon

As far as I can tell, this is a very quiet group. If you're looking for local connections you might try the Raleigh Sparkers group. Raleigh is pretty much right next to Cary, as you probably know, and there's much more activity on that site.

I'm old to Spark - more than 1 year - and to Cary - more than 25 years. Welcome to both. Spark is a great program. I urge you to follow the various stages and Cary is a nice place to live.

Cheers,
VBJ
