Hi everyone! I'm Dana and I'm just getting back into sparkpeople after a bit of an absence, but I'm excited to get on track! I grew up in central jersey (middlesex county) and would love to meet new friends and explore the area with walks/hikes, etc.

Welcome to all! I recently joined on as a new administrator for the Central Jersey Weight Busters, because it seemed wrong that a group with such great potential was fading away!

To briefly introduce myself, I graduated from Rutgers University, and have lived in Central Jersey my whole life. I am currently working as a Technical Training Specialist, living near Princeton and working in Edison. I travel often for work (about 2-3 weeks/month), which presents its own challenges for eating and exercising.

I'll try to post some of the best things I've found in our area to get healthy, as well as gauge any interest for some group activities or support. Please let me know if there is anything specific you would like me to research or discuss, and let's get this group back on track!

I haven't done this in a few years, the last time I did sparkpeople was in between babies!! I have two girls, six and two. We're done w/the baby thing, so time to get myself in shape and commit to a lifetime of being healthy (er!). Live in Neshanic and teach grade 7, hoping for an early dismissal tommorrow... ; )

Hi, I just joined the Central Jersey Weight Busters team. I am new to SparkPeople. I live in South River. I need all the motivational help I can get because I have battled with my weight all my life and I just recently was able to lose some weight but I still need to drop about 40 more pounds. My biggest problem is keeping the weight off....I can find a way to lose it but then in a matter of days it seems that I will gain a few pounds back. Sooooo frustating. Hope to hear from you.

Hi I'm from Middlesex County - Sayreville. I have been on Sparkpeople on and off for 2 years now. I have a very busy job but I still follow a low salt, low sugar, low fat diet and I work out 4x weekly for 30 minutes in my mini-home gym.

Good to be back

Hi everyone. I live in Union County (which technically means I am not in Central NJ... but the Northern NJ team is pretty inactive), and started using Spark People on 1/1. So far I have lost 10 lbs and became motivated to train for a 5k. I start week 6 of my c25k training tomorrow. I am signed up for a race on 4/18. I am married, have a four year old son and 1 year old daughter, and teach sixth grade in a neighboring town. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Hello gang. I was born and raised in South Jersey (Camden & Cape May Counties) but now I live in Ocean County and work in Monmouth. I'm not entirely new to SP, but I haven't been around in a bit and never really used it as the resource it was meant to be. I started @ 265lbs and I'd like to get down to 215lbs.

Hey everyone. I'm Jill. I live and work in Mercer County. I am a child abuse and neglect investigator. I am starting grad school in Monmouth County in a couple weeks. I am trying to loose a large amount of weight. I am 10 lbs down! Sparkpeople is such a good tool. So, I would definately be interested in finding a walking buddy.

Good luck people!

Hi I live in Middlesex county. Michelle, I had the same problem for a few months at the gym. I felt like I was pushing so hard and getting no results. I then changed up my work out and started to see results again. Good luck!

Live simply.
Love generously.
Care deeply.
Speak kindly.
Leave the rest to God.

Hello, Michelle in South Plainfield here. I have not been on in forever and i figure if i can spend hours on facebook, I can spend some here!

I have been going to the gym for 3 months, 4-5 nights a week and have stayed the same weight! i am not losing motivation because i love it and it is a habit now, but i really need to look at what i am eating.

Aloha all!!
I live right smack dab in the middle of the state, here in Trenton, bought my house 6 years, 17 days ago! lol! Before that I grew up in Hamilton emoticon
I am looking to meet new people in my area & surrounding area to do a VARIETY of different things! In the winter I keep active by playing indoor volleyball & snowboarding. In the summer I like to kayak, bike, hike, play beach volleyball, softball & well anything that has me outside!

Anyone who is interested in any of these things, or something I haven't listed, I'm always willing to give something a try at least once (!) please contact me!! I tried wind surfing last summer & had a blast!!

Oh Yeah! Ha! I'm a bit of a scatter brain at times... Aloha!! I'm new to the group! lol!

Hi I'm Lela from the Freehold area. I have been browsing Sparkpeople for over a year and have finally decided I should jump in a join a team. It's hard to admit that you can't do it alone but I'm at that point where I need to be a part of something. I work fulltime as a cardiac tech and am enrolled at Brookdale for Cardiac RN so things get hectic. I'm looking forward to hearing from others as well as getting involved.

Hey Wendy!

Just catching up on the story with your knee surgery... wow! I'm glad to hear that you are at least able to get in in Feb rather than April.

You sent me an email inviting me to join back in December. I'm finally settling back into a routine from the holidays and then we were on vacation. And of course catching up with work after all of that.

I'm glad to be here! And I think a walk is in store for me on my lunch hour today! Too nice out there to pass this one up!

Hi All:
I live in Princeton Township (originally from Teaneck) and have two kids. I enjoy spinning, weight training and the elliptical. I just joined SP two weeks ago and it has really helped me pull my weight loss act together.
My goal is to lose 50lbs by the end of the year. Glad to be here with my Jersey Girls and guys.

Hi everyone! I am a 39 year old from Freehold who is looking to lose about 30 pounds. I have crazy hours (I get up at 245am to get ready for work) so I only sleep about 4-5 hours a night. Not the best for having the energy to exercise and eat right! I am hoping that by joining this site I will stay motivated!

Hi, I am 42 years old living in Middlesex County – Milltown with my husband and two active boys (ages 12 & 6). I joined Spark late in 2006 and lost 12 pounds. I unfortunately stopped using Spark mid 2007 and have since gained back 19 pounds. I work full-time and don’t make the time for me. I am recommitted and ready to loose. I am glad to be a part of the team and I know we will all be successful in 2009!

Hi all! Just wanted to introduce myself... my name is Alyssa, I am a 42 year old mom of 3 sons. I live in Highland Park, and run a software business with my husband (our niche is a program we wrote for the jewelry industry). I'm finally trying to get serious about weight-loss and getting in shape, and am so glad I just discovered SparkPeople. Looking forward to getting to know you all. Here's to a successful 2009!

Hi Everybody! I am new to this Team. Originally from Western NY, hence my user name, I now live in Middletown, close to Red Bank.

I'm 56 years young, married, have 2 grown step-children and a grandchild on the way in early Feb. I need to loose a lot of weight but I am doing it one pound at a time. The holidays have been playing havoc with all of my self control so I need to get myself re-motivated and back on track!

Hello everyone! I'm actually from Upstate NY, but going to school in Princeton. I'm a senior so I'll be graduating in May, but there's a chance I could be sticking around depending on where I get a job.

Hello to All,
Hope everyone had a good weekend. Welcome to those who are new also!
Connie, you're practically my neighbor! I live in the Fprds section of Woodbridge near Hopelawn. I like walking in Warren Park on Florida Grove Road, since I'm older I need good parking, pretty level ground, & a restroom!!
On Saturdays the Fords Library has a yoga/meditation meetup there from 10:30am till 1pm. I love it & try to go as often as I can.

Everyone have a great week ahead!!

Live~~Love~~Laugh~~~~

Hi Lorraine & welcome!! I used to work in your town for 17 years at DuPont Photo Products on Cheesequake Rd. Small world. I wish I could get to the weight you are at now. You're doing a very smart thing by your workouts, proper diet, & weight loss. At 56 years old, it's harder to do. I'm very young at heart & try the best I can. This is a great site, many good low cal recipes, workouts & nice people.

Congrats on graduating law school. You will be in my thoughts & prayers on a successful grade for your bar exam!!! Hope you stay in NJ for a while. I understand our area & others not far away are great for young lawyers. Keep us posted!!!

Carolyn

Hi everyone. I'm Lorraine. 25 years old and currently living in Sayreville. I've been on Spark for a week now and I am hoping to shed a few pounds and get in better shape. I just graduated from law school in May and so long as I passed the bar I will be entering the USAF JAG Corp in January. I work out 5x / week at Retro Fitness in Sayreville and I am glad there is a message board for Central Jerseyans!

Hello Everyone! I see its been a while since anyone has posted on here but figured that I would introduce myself anyways.

My name is Heather and I am 22. I live in New Egypt... it's like 5 minutes away from Great Adventure or about 10 min from the McGuire Air Force Base.

Well anyways, just wanted to say hello!

The secret of success is having the courage to begin in the first place.

Hello!
I'm living in Bridgewater right now. I just finished graduate school and am looking for a job, hopefully somewhere close to me.
I have been a member of a gym for about a year now (although, lately I have not been a very active member). I will be changing that and going more frequently now that life has slowed down a bit.
My friend sent me a link to this site and I'm enjoying it! There are so many great tools to use... I'm looking forward to the weight loss journey!

Hi neighbor! I'm from Fords too, live off Crows Mill Rd! What a small world. The Aqua class sounds like fun. Is that at LA Fitness? I go to the water classes when we travel to our timeshare in Virginia, and their water classes are great too.
Do you ever walk in Fords Park?
Take care and Hello to All!!

Hi Everyone! I live in Fords and am looking for a walking buddy. I'm new to the whole exercise thing so I'm not up to speed walking at this point - hope i will be soon. I just started going to the gym (LA Fitness) and started taking the Aqua class (love it!) and I also go and do the bike. Good luck to everyone!!

My motto was always "Because I can" and I find it very appropriate for this occassion..because I CAN!!

I'm Krys from Morganville, NJ. Used to live a block from the beach. I like to surf during the summers and snowboard in the winters. I also want to start getting out and walking more. Anyone living close to me... I'd be interested in joining for walks or yoga, etc... even surfing in the summer.

Anywho, I have a fiance, a kid, and an apartment... and work mon-fri at a sign shop. The rest is on my spark page :-)

Think about the future and how happy we are going to be - that much lighter :-)

Laugh like there's no tomorrow.

Cheers on being in a nice range from your goal weight.
I live in Woodbridge and we have a few nice waterfront
areas to get in some walking exercise.The Perth Amboy waterfront is the nearest and there are 2 areas in Sewaren.It must be very nice along the Manasquan Resevoir. What is Retro? A gym? I can only do the walking, not jogging or running because of Arthritisin the knees, hips, and back.

Hi. I have just lately changed many things in my life, including diet, exercise and lifestyle. My weight is going down but the rest of my life is in turmoil. I am trying to stick to the correct foods and not switch back to emotional eating. I know better now because I realize how physically bad I feel just a short time afterwards. But now with other parts of my life not under my control I feel depressed and confused. So words of wisdom and support will be welcomed and I will help anyone who asks. I have lost 40 pounds in 3 months...amazingly. But then I have been out of work, and I made that my only job... Lonely and depressed and confused..C.

In this forum you may introduce yourself to the rest of the team. you can post in anyone's thread to welcome them. I suggest you post your own topic of introduction with a few trivial facts about yourself so all may get to know you.

Friends are a great comfort to help you through anything!
