Hi I'm from the UK and walk outdoors. Most days 15-20 minutes at lunchtime. Sometimes I get a bee in my bonnet and do a 5k or regular longish walks of an hour or more.

Hi, I'm Lynne and I love walking indoors and out for exercise. Can't beat it for effective and easy exercise . Especially when I get to listen to my favorite music and enjoy the scenery outside when its gorgeous out like it has been here in Oklahoma.

Wow Homebody67, you are a great recruiter, and I see you have been on Spark for less than a year, that is awesome all you do and lead and ....

Hi everyone, I was recruited by Homebody67 through my sparkmail, I don't know how she got my sparkname, what is your method of recruitment, Homebody67??

Since I walk a lot already, this is a great team to post to. I think walking is greatly under rated as a holistic and stimulating exercise. My DD's two dogs love to walk with me, Denver is just a puppy so only comes on the walks close to home, Frida comes on most of my walks and morning hikes.









I am a dairy farmer, well a part-time dairy farmer as my DH and DD are full time and I help out too. Working part time in a family business gives me lots of time to do what I want to while contributing to the family so they get ample time off too. I love hiking and walking and running, DH and I run 3 5k races a year in spring summer and fall, and this year we are also going to run a 10k night race in the fall. I also have tried a few short distance triathlons, I hope to do one in June. I am not really trying to get faster, just trying to keep staying in shape interesting by having an event to train for.

My name is June, I am 57 and have a sweet husband, two daughters and one son, the kids are all in their 20s. I love my life, and am thankful for the many good things I enjoy every day. I like this stage of life, still busy, still working, lots of choices, and part of a wonderful family.

I live in the Fraser Valley, British Columbia, Canada - on the Pacific West Coast

Hi everyone

My name is Marge and I have been with Spark people off and on for a few years. Now that I have retired last fall, I have the time to put "me" first and take better care of myself and live a healthy new lifestyle.

Living in Wisconsin can be kind of cold in the winter and hard to walk outdoors when it snows. So since I retired my husband and I try to get our steps in everyday even if we just walk thru some stores or the mall. I have been known to walk around my house in the evening just to reach my daily goal . I am looking forward to spring so I can get outdoors to walk..

Hello everyone,

My name is Shannon
I have lost over 50 lbs, started on 1/9/14
Currently I am trying to maintain my weight between 145-150 pounds.
I am 47 years old, May 19th I will be 48
I am married to a wonderful man who takes good care of me
I live in Brownsville Oregon

Having some very stressful times right now so I am a little over my maintenance weight. I am trying to keep it together and be strong for my family and my friend but it is not easy to do all of the time. I find myself snaking more than I usually do so I have gained a little.

Hi my name is Shannon and I have a obsession with food

I live in Brownsville, Oregon

I lost 30 pounds from January to August of 2015. Then I slacked off and quit tracking food and exercise. I gained 13 pounds back. This January I started tracking again and have lost 7 pounds of what I regained. I am walking on the treadmill but want to get started walking outside again. I have been walking for 30 minutes a day and doing yoga every day too. The problem is I have been overeating for about a week. I want to get back on track and thought maybe joining this team would be good motivation.

Wise choices each day will get me where I want to be.

Hello, my name is actually dawn. I am new to SP and I am working on a better me so I can live a more full filling life. Also what helped me get started was my cats giving me sympathetic looks and cuddling from my cats due to headaches and pain every day. My babies doesn't need a momma that is stuck on the couch or bed due to health. Yes my doctor Knows I'm starting out on exercising and dieting. They pretty much gave me books on what exercises I can do as well as books for dieting.

Part of the Ohio Valley team.

Working towards a better me.

Not a bright move me thinks. Now I must start anew. Please if we were buddies add me again if you wish. I welcome new adds as well.

Much thanks & it is great to be back.

Hi all. emoticon for the invite! I rejoined SparkPeople last fall. I've been out of work with back & now neck issues leading to surgery on my neck in December. I've lost 22 lbs & it's really slow going these last 2 months. I'm trying to be patient & not get discouraged. emoticon Surgery ended up being more involved than the Neurosurgeon thought but I'm getting through this post operative time. I have slipped & fell on icy steps but am okay! I am able to walk (carefully) & hope that this will help melt off some pounds! emoticon 2015 was not a good year, between helping & caring for my husband during his fight with stage 4 throat cancer & neglecting myself causing my back issues to worsen despite physical therapy. Working on getting healthier one day at a time & celebrating life. I want to enjoy walks again & being able to stop & smell the roses! I want to wish everyone luck in their challenges & goals!! emoticon emoticon

I also received an invite from Homebody67 and decided to join the team. I love to walk, but during the winter months usually do walk away the pounds dvds. I will be starting a seasonal job tomorrow that will last thru April so this will motivate me to get some steps in.

I am from Alabama and kids are grown. Second grandchild on the way! Happy to be here and hope everyone is having a happy new year!!

I go regularly to the gym and workout with a group at 5 am with Les Mills classes. I also have a FitBit Surge and try to get in 10,000 steps a day. Although some days I do fall short of it but I don't beat myself up about it.

Have a great week and get moving!!!

Hi all, I'm Laura and just joined this team. Happy to be here! I am in the frozen Midwest which is making it hard to get out and walk so I have been busting out my Walk Away the Pounds DVDs and trying to make my 10,000 steps a day goal. I have 4 kids and just finished nursing school in December, now studying for board exams so I can find a job in my new career. Glad you are all here walking along with me!

Hi! I'm Kathy from Brandon, MB, Canada. I have been very busy over the Christmas season, and have gotten behind on my Spark activities/reporting. I would love to join your team. I have a fitbit and try to get in at least 7500 steps per day, although lately I've been trying to finish knitting a sweater for my husband (that was supposed to be for Christmas), and that has rather put a damper on my walking. I am determined to get back on track with walking, as well as continuing on the sweater.

Hello!!!
I am Doris from Northeast Ohio. I love walking but don't always find time to do it. I will walk in the cold but I wish it were light out to see everything. My dog goes unless I am worried about her paws freezing. Just came back from Disney and certainly put in the steps there. Would like to get at least 10,000 steps a day. Have a great day!!!

Hi-- My name is Jan and I'm from outside Syracuse, NY. I noticed that a few others are reaching milestone birthdays and want to get serious about this. Me too! I am going to hit 60 in a few months, and I'd love to start my next decade in a much better frame of mind and in improved health. I'm running out of time to get my act together!

Hi. I am Sheila. I have been Sparking for more than 5 years... made it to maintaining but back to losing again... I was invited to join this team. I use the elliptical at the gym. I count my steps on the fitbit... and am thinking I could help myself by gradually increasing my daily steps. In warm weather I enjoy walking outside, biking, and swimming. In colder weather I can walk at work as I work in a large high school. I started the walking challenge while on vacation with my mom in sunny Florida... the challenge will be to continue it in cold and damp New England, despite my arthritis and vascular concerns...but I can and will do it... I look forward to your support and I hope to support you as well...

Wishing you well, Sheila

I joined this challenge on the second, but actually started my New Year with a goal of walking at least 10,000 steps a day. This looks like a perfect team to support my goals. I am in SW Michigan, so outdoor walking is a bit of a challenge this time of year. Thankfully, I have access to treadmill and other indoor walking where I work. My hubby is trying to get back in a running habit, so he is very supportive.
