Hi all ,
My name is Pauline and I live in Glen Allen/innsbrook area. I have lived in VA about 7 years now, transplanted from Ohio.
I have a long journey ahead of me and could use all the support and friends I can get both online and in real world :) I have fitness equipment (bet most of us do) at home and would welcome a partner or a walking buddy when the weather improves.

New to the team, not new to sparks. I've had an ongoing battle to lose and last year I lost over 45lbs with the help of my supportive sidekick (my husband). Now, I find myselft here posting because I NEED to lose 27lbs of the 45lbs I gained back over the last year. My goal is to lose 37lbs and reach my healthy weight of 139 pounds....I'll see it soon! Thank for the support and I wish you all the best!

I am new to the Sparkpeople website and actually just joined on the 12/14/2009. I initially joined the Richmond team and then I stumbled across the Henrico and Hanover team and had to make the change! I am looking forward to getting and giving support along the way of my 60 pound loss journey. So far I have lost 25!

Never give up!

Hi Everyone, I have been a member of Spark People for a awhile but for about four months have neglected everthing including the fight to lose weight. I am now back on track and since I live in the West End I am happy to have found this team. I am new to Virginia, going on 3years now. I don't know a lot of people but would like to be involved on this team. I would encourage no one to give up it is a struggle but one I am determined to win. emoticon

Hi, I just joined sparkpeople this month. I am planning on losing 50 lbs. I was surprised to find a Henrico/Hanover Group. :)

It's different in that people drive faster and the prices are lower on the Southside. I work, shop and church down there.

Richmond has a long standing south river vs. north river mentality, with a decided difference. Even west end and other areas have different attitudes, etc. I'm curious which side you were talking about that is different? Do you find one area better as far as food that easier to be consistent with?

I'm a New York transplant that has lived in Henrico the entire time I've been in Virginia, which is since 2001. I work on the Southside and can tell the difference. I like it here on this side of the river.

Liberty... we want liberty from this weight we carry, from our bad habits, from our inconsistencies...

That is why I selected a photo I took of the Hanover Courthouse as our theme photo. Patrick Henry was from Hanover County and frequented this property.

I started the group for Henrico and Hanover Counties, VA to give a group a more defined group than just the (greater) Richmond (area) groups. I want this group to meet on an ongoing basis and to do things together.

Positive attitudes, sharing, desire to commit, and willingness to participate as a team are keys to our individual success and our group's success.

Jump in and be a part of this vibrant team.
