Hello from Goodman, Mississippi!! I have been on a 3 week hiatus! My daughter got sick and as soon as she got better my husband got sick, then I got sick! YUCK! Then there was spring break thrown in there. So, I am back. I am re-starting Insanity By Shaun T. I completed the program back on March 6th, but still have a lot of weight to lose. I am hoping this second time through will pull off 15 pounds. That may be a little ambitious, but I can dream, right? =) I'm back!!

Hi all! Been AWOL for awhile but am getting the spark back and ready to move onward and downward (well, move the scale downward anyway).

I lost 5 lbs in the past two weeks and am right proud of myself! Lots of exercise and few calories!

EA Sports Active fo Wii is just the greatest invention! Although, I must admit that when that trainer says "I bet you can do more" I sometimes want to throw that wii-mote at the TV!! emoticon

We certainly have had some pretty days recently! They just don't last long enough! By the time we get something planned, the clouds are back. But my daughter and I did get to spend a couple of days walking the beach in Gulfport during Spring Break. Walking along the beach is the best walking--I could just walk for miles and miles!!

Hi Mississppi Sparkers. I've been gone a while but I got my spark back and re-joined March 4th. I'm glad to be back and taking care of me again. I really enjoyed a 20 minute walk in the sunshine today. Hope this kind of weather last a while. I'm working on a challenge of losing 30 lbs by memorial and so far I am making progress. Have to get used to posting and blogging again because that's what helped me before along with traking my fitness and nutrition.

Hi team! Happy Weekend! I ran the Run4Hope Half MArathon this morning in Oxford- great run! Lots of fun and it was for a good cause. Finished in 1:56 which was a minute slower than my Jackson Blues Half marathon time but still happy since I didn't really train for this race. Want to get back on track this week with my eating (I've gained five pounds in the last 2 weeks!).

Hello, all, I am just checking in to let all know I am still on my journey to a healthier life. So far so good. Pounds are not coming off fast enough, but I feel gooood. I am exercising more than I ever have in my life and I love it. I am tracking my food and have to work hard to reach my calories. When I master this I think scales will change faster. I am not worried, the Lord is in control of this journey. God Bless all

Ceddiva, what area are you from? I know someone who owns a gym in Hattiesburg that has been around a long time (almost 20 years). They have some great trainers there. I have never gone but have heard from others. I also have seen some news stories featuring them.

Hi there! My name is Courtney and I am located in Biloxi. I am ready to cast down my part surrounding this MS stigma. I am excited and motivated (and am trying to find a way to get disciplined enough to utilize all of the wonderful tool this site has to offer).

Additionally, I have come to find that I work better with a trainer, while I may complete my reps on my own, I could stand to use that extra push that I wouldn't otherwise give to myself. If anyone can forward to me a reputable personal trainer, that would be great!

...and in conclusion, Who Dat! ;-)

Hi Mom210 and welcome! I have been on sparkpeople a few months just haven't been checking in here for awhile. I am in Hattiesburg so not too far from you! Together we CAN do this and we will fix Mississippi's "large" problem!

It is soooo cold here today. The wind just cuts right through! I keep hearing about snow coming on Thursday! Anyone in South Mississipi know the weather report?

Good morning! I don't think I've introduced myself here. I'm living in Pascagoula and I have LOTS of weight to lose. I'm glad to see most of y'all are lighter than I am. we get billed as the largest state but if we have our way, we'll fix that, won't we ?

Happy Saturday team! I just ran 8 miles and I feel great! Training for the run for hope in Oxford on the 27th of February. Hope to see some sparkers out there (there's a 5K and a half marathon). It's Freezing outside today so I'm staying in, getting some work done, and staying warm! Have a great weekend everybody! emoticon

Hello, everyone. Hope all had a good week with the healthy journey. I feel better than I have ever felt on a "diet". Eating correctly and exercising has given me so much energy and such a positive outlook on everything. My slight problem is I love to exercise and want to prepare to run. My left heel has a tear and is not completely healed. When I overdo my walking my foot hurts really bad. I am so determined to continue. I am praying for God to solve this for me. Happy to talk with others like myself from the great southern state of MS.

Hi everyone! I've been on Sparkpeople for a year, but I decided this year to actually use it to get healthy and lose weight. I live in the Hattiesburg/Petal area, and go to USM. I'm hoping the Payne Center will help some in losing some weight.

Hhi everyone, I am new on Sparks and I love it. I love in Mississippi and thought this would be a great team to join!

My goal is to lose 25 pounds by April 15th! I am doing great so far. I exercise 45 minutes a day and have cut calories to a 1500 max a day count (hard) but going strong!

I wish everyone luck and I hope we all meet our goals!

I haven't checked in in a while, so here I am! Just stopping in to say hello and let everyone know I am still working on my weight loss. I have been stuck at my current weight now for 3 months. I just can't seem to get the scales to move!! It's so frustrating. I have started a workout program called Insanity and I am hoping it will help me break through the plateau. I also have been doing the Couch to 5k program. I'm loving it!!

Ran the Jackson Blues half marathon this morning in the FREEZING cold! My hands were hurting, they were so cold and my face was frozen. However, did have a pretty decent time of around 1:55 and I'm glad I chose to stick out the weather because it ended up being a nice race--very hilly though :/ Glad to be resting the rest of the weekend!

Hello! I am from Laurel/Hattiesburg area. I lost 100 lbs about 6 years ago when I decided it would be a fun idea to join the Navy. "Somehow" I seem to have found that 100 lbs, and then some! (No longer in the Navy, now a Nursing student) I kept telling myself it was "ok" until I stepped on the scale and it hit 230+! After I picked my self up off the floor (from passing out) I decided that I had to lose this weight and get my old self back! Would love to workout with anyone interested, just let me know. I'm looking forward to getting to know people :)

No school today because of "snow". lol after going to college in connecticut, I'll take the 45 degrees and sunny version of a mississippi snow day any day- for the record no snow in Indianola today at all and after a couple days of brutal windchill, it was warm enough for me to run outside today emoticon

From your tools page there is a link on left for weigh in/measurements. You can put in your weight. You will need to go to your sparkpage and edit to get a weight loss progress bar.

Happy New Year Mississippi Sparklers. I'm in Waveland and joined a couple weeks ago. The Emails are so motivating and the recipes are great. I have already been losing weight but had to switch to low fat-high fiber due to a medical problem. This if definitely working for me. Thanks, Ya'll.
