Hello Learn211,

Hope that you are finding that you just just LOVE Spark people.

I'm late in sending out the emoticon but hope to see you here.


You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You're on your own. And you know what you know. And YOU are the one who'll decide where to go...

Small steps are exactly what gets you going! Welcome to the team.

Hello Karen,

Welcome to the Go the Distance team. Feel free to poke around on our personal pages. I think you'll find quite a few of us doing some heavy calorie burning.

I am joining Go the Distance this evening, and would like to take moment to introduce myself. I am a special needs teacher in Wisconsin. I have been severely overweight since I had my children. I managed to drop my weight done to 200, but struggle to get into the hundreds, and usually gain weight during winter. I am most successful with long distance walking, magnetic pedaling (arms), and using my recumbent bicycle. I am hoping to increase my fitness level and taking my cycling outside. I used to be more athletic when I was younger. I walked up to seven miles a day, rode my bike several miles every day or so, and played softball. I experienced a few cycling accidents and some falls, and as a result reduced what I was doing to maintain my weight. After I injured my knee in 2013, my doctor told me to try riding a bike. I am attempting to build to that fitness level, but I am walking for now. I am happy that I made it up to 3 miles. I know I need to do much more, and I am okay with small steps for now. I am hoping to reach my cycling goal within the next few months. I came to this team to find motivation.

Just Believe!
