Thank you for the kind welcome. Yes the ocean has always been there for me. I remember sitting on my surfboard, crying because my son had just broke up with his long term girlfriend. She had become like a daughter to me. I was out there alone, and I could cry to my heart's content - then the dolphins swam through (which I took as a good omen).

Yes, welcome! You are definitely in the right spot! Several of us are your age-ish. We are a very supportive group. The daily chat can be anything you want it to be. Some people come in and say what they've achieved for the day, some people say what they plan to achieve, sometimes people ask for a kick in the pants to get motivated again and often it's just simply a chat.

Our common thread is the love of swimming.

I am a California beach rat, I love the ocean more than almost anything. It's where I've always taken my greatest sorrows as well as my greatest achievements. There's nothing more awesome than the ocean to make you feel small and yet a part of something alive and incredible. I live up just north of Santa Barbara and absolutely love Cal!

Thank you for the welcome! & congrats on becoming an Esquire! I visit this place for motivation, and empathy. I'm off to swim 2000 meters right now & would love to put that towards a group goal. I wouldn't know how, but will be on the look out on how to do it.

You're in good company. We all love to swim (good) and eat (bad, if we let it). This is a great place for support!

Stop by our daily chat thread, where we talk about anything and everything, not just swimming. We're also in the process of developing a challenge for the month of January. Do you have ideas? Visit here.... www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_mes

I'm going for a 20 pound weight loss, and I'm hoping support from this group will help. I would love to support others too. Swimming is one of my good habits - I love it. Eating is one of my bad habits - I love that too! I'm getting older - almost 60, but I would love to be able to stand up quickly on my surfboard again. I live in So CA & swim regularly in a beautiful 50 meter pool. Thanks All - See you around. emoticon
