Hello Everyone. I'm shelley and I live in Andover. Reconnected with SP about a month ago. Hoping if I actually use the site (track nutrition, exercise and chat) it will help me to lose this time. Im just really tired of being fat and hiding behind big clothes and not doing things because of my weight. I'm married and have 3 kids 26,20 and 17. Decided it was finally time to start doing things for me.

Love the saying, Susan! Lexington is just south of you. Do you have any favorite walks or parks in your area? There was a park down Lake Drive from me but they closed it - went to private owners. It's not bad walking around me - there's a path near the library and Circle Pines City Hall that's nice - kind of wooded.

Hello, My name is Susan and my user name SOSHEDID2 is taken from a plaque I have that reads "She believed she could, so she did"

I live in Ham Lake and have one daughter who is 10 years old. My hope with Spark People is that it will keep me focused on getting in better shape.

I am not considered overweight for my height, but I do not feel good about myself. I am hoping to lose about 15 pounds and get in better shape.

I am in Lexington and started my diet in 2007. I lost over 60 pounds but I'm not really losing very steadily right now but I keep exercising and trying to add new ones. I eat a lot of veggies and fruit and have a hard time getting enough calories in. Right now I'm concentrating on lowering my sodium so I'm very diligent about tracking my food and watching the menus when I do eat out.

Hello! I live in Columbia Heights. I lost 50 pounds last year and am getting married this July! Yippee!! But unfortunately winter was not nice to me! I have gained about 10 pounds back that i need to lose again plus I would love to actually get to my goal weight! I am finding that my biggest problem is first and foremost, that I am lazy! I take full responsiblity! I would love to find someone to help keep me motivated. Have a great day!!

Karen - I don't know how long the couch to 5k program is, but as I look at my calendar, I've just over 3 wks to "train". Right now, I plan on doing a walk to one song, run to one song. I know I can do that. I'm going in with the attitude that the only one I competing against is myself and doing what my sister can't. Oh, and I can do 2 1/2 miles in 35 minutes.

(Have to keep editing cuz I can't type today!)

You're on, though. As long as they're on Saturday mornings or anytime on Sundays.

Karen - I signed to do Walk for Hope in memory of my sister. That's Oct 11 over at Bunker - first time I've ever done anything like this.

Sylvia - I wouldn't really call myself a true runner, but I'm going to give it my best shot. After this 5K, I'll probably have a heart attack. Story on the news this morning says marathon runners aren't really the healthiest. Great - try to get in shape and I'm gonna die doing it. What a plan!

Yeah, a sixty some year old marathonner decided to cut us a break and slowed down just at the end! LOL

Karen, I suspect Deb would leave us eating her dust! She's a runner!
