Katrina,
Glad you enjoyed your winning meal ticket. And your DH really does have a great journey story!! Tell him to keep up the exercise because he looks di-no-mite!!! emoticon Now he has motivation to join SparkPeople so he can get his award next year. emoticon

Criss,
Glad you, too, enjoyed your evening out. Hope you were strong and stayed away from the desserts. emoticon

Sheila,
Tell your DH emoticon emoticon video on youtube!! My children thought I was teasing them when I told them I was on there. It's wonderful to have the video and the pictures as mementos of our glorious North Georgia Rally!!!! It was a pleasure and honor to work with you and look forward to next year already. emoticon

To Everyone,
Thanks for making our Rally so emoticon

Thanks for including my sweet dh in the race walk results. He thoroughly enjoyed the day. I'm hoping to get him to join SparkPeople too.

He has quite a story of weight loss. He was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in October 2008. He weighed about 315 (he is 6' 4" tall).

We ran across some folks advertising their new weight loss clinic while at the grocery store a week or two later. I was impressed because dietitians worked with the clients. Dh signed up for an orientation, and then signed on. His first visit was November 15, 2008.

He has since lost over 85 pounds and is 11.5 pounds away from his goal. His discipline has been inspirational. He looks and feels so much better. His doctor just took him off the insulin pills and reduced his cholesterol medicine by half.

If you want to see pictures from his journey, I have some posted on my Sparkpage. I'm a bit private, so I'll have to "friend" you first though.

We used our O'Charley's certificate and were impressed by their healthy choices. It was delicious. Thank you again!

Sheila before the rally you never thought all the plans would come together in time. Now, it seems like we blinked and it's gone. The weather was just what we ordered, the speakers were interesting and knowledgeable and, most of all, it was delightful to get to meet everyone and share face to face. I hope everyone enjoyed themselves and will start making plans to be at next year's rally!!! emoticon emoticon to everyone for a wonderful memory in my mind and heart!

Hey guys, I went to the Forsyth County News today and got that all done. They will be calling me and letting me know when it will be in there.

Now all we like to get done is the video on YouTube still working on that. Hope to have it done in a few days.

Hey everyone,

I just want to update you on what is happening. I now have up all the photos of the North Georgia Rally in both teams and on the website as well.

Today I will be working on putting some photos on a CD and getting some info together to take to the Forsyth County News. I will try to get all this done today and get it down to them. I will let you know what they said.

My husband is working today on getting some of the video together of the Walk and will be putting it up on YouTube. I will give you the link to it just as soon it is up there.

Dear Sheila,

I am so overwhelmed by what you did for us. I had not a clue that you were alone in organizing this day of fun, excercise and education. Had I known I'd have offered myself sooner. I truly believe in what Kevin and Jeff said. Finding support and giving back service is where it is at.

I loved today ... not just the enthusiastic welcome I got from both you and Ellie... not just the beautiful day we had for all the wonderful activities you organized for us... not just the beautiful gifts you put together, giftwrapped and gave from the heart ... but the wonderful new friends and the comraderie that I found in meeting the people who share a common goal of getting healthier together with SP.

You are truly an inspiration to me. I loved meeting you. Today was a blessing in my life. I will treasure the memory and it is on my gratitude list for a long time. The love and hard work you gave to us was really appreciated thanks for everything from soup to nuts.

Love,
steffi

North Georgia Spark Rally
Was held at West Bank Park- Buford Dam
April 25th, 2009

First thing I would like to say is thank you everyone for coming out. It was a honour to meet all of my fellow spark members in person and to make new spark friends.

We had a beautiful day at the lake at our North Georgia Spark Rally over the weekend. We had 42 people through out the day. Everyone had so much fun and learn a lot from Kevin the Personal Trainer from Gold's Gym. He talk to us about Nutrition and Logging in our Points on SparkPeople he also gave the Spark Members a good workout. Kevin has joined SparkPeople so he knows all about the program. Kevin did a great job we couldn't have had a better Trainer to come to our rally. Mary Beth is the Yoga Trainer from Gold's Gym as well. She did yoga with our Spark Members they just loved this and had a great time with her. This is something all of us can do at home. If you live in or near Cumming GA stop by Gold's Gym and check them out!!

Jeff Albert CPC, Professional Life Coach talked about mine, boby and soul. I think this really helped us all to know we are worth it and we are beautiful on the inside and out. That it is up to us to change. I am looking forward to having my free session with Jeff or Leanne.

Thank You Everyone For Coming!! I will never forget this day!!

Special Thanks To: Tina Thatcher Gold's Gym Manager and Personal Trainer, Kevin Duncan Gold's Gym Personal Trainer and Mary Beth Gold's Gym Yoga Trainer also to Jeff Albert CPC, Professional Life Coach.

Special Thanks To: Ellie (LEBOOBOO), Ibi (CREATIVE_CIRCUS) and Steffi (STEFFI264) for volunteering at the North Georgia Spark Rally. Thank you for all your help!!

What a wonderful day we had Saturday. It was a shame that so many did not show up on suck a beautiful day.

You both did an outstanding job setting this Rallie up. emoticon emoticon

The prizes were well worth the trip. It was great to learn some exercises and get some free tips on what to do at the gym.

I skipped the yoga class since at 72 I have a hard time getting up and down let alone cross my legs in the lotus position.

IbI also needs to be thanked for helping out.

You did a magnificent job. We had so much fun! The weather was beautiful, just perfect for this event. I'm still sore from the yoga, I'll have to stretch some more.
emoticon emoticon
It's a shame that more folks didn't show up. We learned so much from the speakers. The guy from Gold's Gym was so knowledgeable and it was great to exercise (a little) with him. The life coach had so many good nuggets of hope and inspiration, it has me considering more. The yoga lady managed to lead us through a nice exercise, even without mats on the asphalt!

And the race/walk was a hoot. I can't believe how quickly everyone finished! The park was a great backdrop. I understand my husband enjoyed some of the scenery down on the beaches along the way.
emoticon
The time in between speakers and activities allowed us to mingle and get to know one another a little. It's so nice to put a real person to a username.

Let's do this again. Next time maybe if there is a nominal fee ($5-$10) the organizers won't have to take from their own pockets and those who sign up will show up. Count me in!

Don and I only stayed through lunch, but look forward to the next time we can get together. We took a walk early while it was still cool, but applauded those that did the exercises down near the lake. Thank you all for organizing this and all your hard work. I'm at least motivated again.

On a previous sparkmail it said that N GA Rally was full. I'm planning to come, but did not make reservations. Do you think that is a problem? I'll bring my own chairs, etc.

Thank you for the reply. I think that I could make it by the last part of the program starting at 1:45 (which is something that I could really benefit from) and I love Yoga, so I may still try to make it. When I get there, do I still need to register? If yes, will the table still be up at that time or do I need to look for someone. I am bummed that I cannot get there sooner, but my son's Peanut Team has Concession Stand duty from 11a-1p, and there are only 8 players - we could only get 4 families to participate to come up with 6 people plus my husband is helping to babysit another player while his dad works the concession. So, I have to help with that or the team gets fined $250. Wish I could be there for the entire day, but I'll enjoy what I get!

I really am looking forward to the rally! Gloomy and dreary yet again today! Ignoring the weather forcasts was able to get out with my doggettes yesterday and fit in a 2.5 power walk during my lunch break (work form home). This AM I knew I HAD to get both me and my munchkins out in the neigboring pasture for their free romp time and my hiking about time. Done! Rain settling in and from what they say expecting 2-4" from now thru Sat...oh cabin fever here I come! Bet I get the house spic and span between now and Sunday LOL

Back to work...

Hi, just poking around based on spark mail I interpreted this chat thread is not officially started until AFTER the rally?? Spark message stipulated we will discuss all we did, won, what we liked best, future rallies, etc after this first rally...? If this is not the case let me know! :)

Anyway, my friend Carol and I signed up immediately and are sooooo excited!! Especially the planned walk and yoga!

Hi, I'm Ellen live in Good Hope GA ...most would recognize Athens before they would Good Hope :) I am approx 20 miles east of Athens...finally got our dream home in the country! I power walk 3 miles a day and am currently enrolled in a class called serenity yoga...lots and lots of powerful information in that class...have quickly become a convert!

Bye for now~

Hello everyone,

I finally found my way back here. I've been absent for a while with some minor health issues and then traveling. I need to get up caught up on the updates for the event.

Now wait a minute... if you have THAT MUCH energy, you are more than welcome to come help me with my spring clean emoticon which , by the way, I have not started even though the weather was perfect for it this weekend.

When you went back for the correct meds, did the pharmacy give you the money back on the wrong pill since it was not your fault? If they didn't, that is wrong!!!! emoticon Tell them you will call the Food and Drug Administration on them. Or may be if your doctor calls them, they will refund your money. Hell, I'll go in there for you....

Oh Ellie you are so funny emoticon emoticon You want believe what happen yesterday. After I picked up my meds I didn't look at them till last night. The ones that I was to start on this morning well when I looked at it, it only had one pill in it and I knew that wasn't right. Because I start off with 6 the first day then on down to one. So I looked at the paper that came with it and it was to make my period start emoticon emoticon how funny was that!! Then it made me upset because I paid for meds that I didn't need and was that wrong one. They would not take it back so I lost money on that. I called my doctor and he said they just hit the wrong button when they called it in. So he called it in again and I went last night at 8:30 to pick it up.

Sooooo I got started taking them this morning and I can tell right now they are kicking in. I feel good and silly so I may be out there later today with my hot pants and tank top. I will have my whole house clean from top to bottom as well as the yard. I may even start on the ones next door. emoticon emoticon They should had gave me this along time ago. Who knew!!

Hello Sheila,
Where is everyone? I thought more people would find there way here. Oh well. Patience is a virtue! I hope Leanne is feeling better as well. This time of year is a bit tougher to get sick. It seems like it takes longer to recover than in winter. I really hope Kevin comes through with 'the NEON things'! It will be fun. He is so creative and seems to know someone in every type of business. I guess that comes with his job at Gold's Gym. Nice to be that great at your job that you can call people to do the kinds of favors he asks, don't ya think? Tell your daughter and Marvic thank you and big hugs for me too. Their help will be appreciated by everyone, I'm sure. It's also invigorating to have 'young blood' around to help keep the motivation going. emoticon Hugs and thanks go to Dianna for walking also. Do we need any more volunteers? Well, you enjoy your weekend and if you go outside in your hot pants and tank top emoticon emoticon , you be sure to wear sun screen! Talk to you Monday, emoticon Ellie

STEENIEB, I sent you a spark mail about the rally. So just let me know okay.

Ellie, I picked up the raffle things from Tina at Gold's Gym today. WOW they are going to love it! Kevin is going to bring the rest of it when he comes to the rally. I haven't heard back from Leanne I hope she's better. She sounded so bad the other day on the phone. I still need to work on getting sparks info retyped for you. I will call Kevin next week on that thing he was going to see about for us "the NEON things" LOL... He just keeps coming up with great ideas. We are going to my daughter's house tomorrow to pick up our truck and I will ask her and Marvic about helping with the parking. Dianna is doing the walk for us. So we are just about ready having everything together hopefully by next week. Call me Monday and we will talk.
