I'm so excited to be back on Spark! I have let life get in the way of fitness and health, and I'm ready to shove that all aside and get back into a healthy lifestyle! I need to get back on a team, so I am so glad I checked in today! Thanks, Jane for leading the team. I grew up in Richfield, but moved to Edina in high school, and now live in Bloomington.

Thanks Jane for stepping up to help lead the team!! I like to visit some of the restaurants in Edina - not much down here in Farmington. While living in Bloomington during my teen years I spent a lot of time with friends in Southdale. It of course has changed a lot since then. Looking forward to reading your posts!

I have heard every single thing that anyone has ever said about Edina (cake eaters??). My daughter was a competitive cheerleader for Edina High School, and they were very successful, and we got a lot of guff over being from Edina.

I moved here, not even knowing that Edina was what it was, only that it had a good school system and had a few affordable houses (not anymore I guess). I have loved living in Edina, and find the Edina digs hilarious.

Spark on.

JJMPLSMN has graciously offered to help lead our our SparkMinneapolis/St.Paul team! Please take a moment to give her a warm welcome. Jane is a mother of an adult daughter of 24 who recently moved in with her for six months. She started on her SparkJourney after fracturing her knee, and with two months in a wheelchair decided to change the way she thinks. She lost about 30 pounds, then went online and looked for a diet website, just to keep her going. She had no idea what she hit until she was about a month into SparkPeople. She set up her blog, was continually losing weight and is now a BIG advocate. She lives in Edina (Every Day I Need Attention...she doesn't, but said that's one of their nicknames, which she finds hilarious, and sometimes true), and she LOVES living in Minnesota.

I'm excited to have some help with getting this team more involved! If anyone else has ideas for challenges, meet-ups or any other ways we can help, please let us know! And, don't forget to post questions or ask for support here if you need it! We are all here to help!
