Hi Everyone been on this site almost two weeks and I am slowly learning my way around.

1) Preferred Name? Deb
2) Age? 47
3) Married or Single? Married
4) Kids? one grown son, one 6 year old grandson
5) Pet's? one crazy little dog I rescued from the freeway four years ago
6) Hometown? Born in the OC but loving living in beautiful San Diego for the past 23 years
7) I Enjoy? Good people, a good laugh, and a good glass of wine.
8) Favorite Food? so many to choose from....dark chocolate and raspberry, lobster tail, fish tacos top the list though
9) Where Did You Vacation? Hmmmm last mini vacation was a weekend in Hollywood, another in Lake Havasu. A week in Hawaii was the last "big" one....going to New Orleans next week.
10)Your Dream Destination? Have to say Ireland. Was born on St Patty's Day and have always wanted to go and see how the Irish live it up
11)If You Won The Lottery? I'd pay off my debts and those fo my family, then I'd travel, travel, travel in style!
12) Working On Change Because? Since I retired from the Navy and have taken on a desk job I've had medical issues and have generally felt my body go to pot. I want to work on obvious physical change so the not so obvious changes can take place. I want to be it and healthy so I can be around to watch my grandson grow up.


Live life as if today were your last day, it just might be. Life is to short to live with regret.

One last thing, i tend to be shy and an introvert, i need people who will interact with me, engage with me whether over the message boards or any route. All of my friends have moved away and since then i've gotten worse about having a purpose or getting outdoors. I need encouragement and guidance, so if anyone needs a friend, let me know :)

Hi - I grew up in San Diego. I reside in San Diego. I've lived in the Florida Keys, Hawaii, Jupiter Florida, The Bay area, Long Beach, San Bernadino .....No matter where I've been I always come back home to Americas Finest City, My hometown. I live a block from the beach. Morning walks or jogs on the sand are the best! . I've been jogging, training, lifting weights,swimming, biking, dancing my whole life. I'm 48 and I feel 29. Life is good. After a couple of curable tragedies (simple surgery on ankle, major change in my life-for the better) I found myself over weight and not in tip top shape. Transformation by Bill Phillips always helps when I find myself in this situation. This site is great!!!!!. My 14 year old daughter turned it on to me. She is tracking her calories from her Smart Phone. emoticon emoticon

Hey everyone! I am pretty new to this team. I'm trying to do my best to stay fit and healthy!
Today I just volunteered to participate in a walkathon called March for Dimes on April 28th to support babies born premature. If you live in Sacramento, you should join me on this event.There is also locations in different states holding this event. I want to make a difference and see families happy instead of struggling and crying because they don't know if their baby will make it. Make a baby healthy! I am trying to raise at least $1000
Please support by joining me or making a donation at www.MarchforBabies.org/ErnaCandic
Every little bit counts!

Hoopy Valentines Day Californians ! I am working on making it a little bit healthier this year. Having a date at home(to save money) with my huz and made the kids heart shaped pancakes with little cards and little presents instead of candy. They actually really seemed to like it.
Have not been able to really exercise last 2 days but hoping tomorrow and food intake is going fair. Need to chose to be obedient and not give at any holiday,birthday or weak day . I want to glorify god with this body He gave me and meet my goal for my 50th B-day. More walking strong and no exceptions or it just takes me down the wrong path (off and on ) for another year and I don't want that. Have a great day walk strong-Hoopy

Since I'm a born and raised California girl, I thought I should join this forum...even though I'm also in the 55+ board. I live near Stockton, have a whole lot of weight to lose and need to get off the computer and start moving . I hope to get to know you all later!

And so it begins.. :)

I made the decision last year to get my backside in gear and lose weight.. I started a blog and everything. LOL Unfortunately, economics and time were against me and I had to put an end to my diligent focus and get a new job. :) So, now I'm beginning again and plan on added on to the 30lbs I've already lost this past year.

I can't to interact with other people like me on their journey to losing weight here in California! Here's a little about me as an introduction. :)

1) Preferred Name: Melissa
2) Age: 37
3) Married or Single: Single :)
4) Kids: No
5) Pets: 1, a mini-schnauzer
6) Hometown: Sonoma County
7) I Enjoy: Reading, writing, hiking, and gardening
8) Favorite Food: Pizza! Its how I got this lush figure. LOL
9) Where Did You Vacation: Hmmm last vacation was about 3 years ago to Estes Park, CO. Love the rocky mountains!
10)Your Dream Destination: Scotland
11)If You Won The Lottery: Buy a home for each of my siblings, pay off my parents mortgage, start a charity where homeless individuals get housing in exchange for work on self sufficient ranch while also being trained in a vocation allowing them to move on and be self sufficient.
12) Working On Change Because: Its about darn time! :)

I look forward to getting to know you all through your posts and comments. :)

Hi my name is Katina, I'm 35 years old with 2 children & I am looking forward to weighing less & being healthier come my April fools day wedding this year. My fiance & I were raised in long beach (actually went to the same junior high) but we currently live in Riverside county.

I am looking forward to losing enough that I can be more active like I used to be. We work out 3-4 times a week at the gym & we try to do extra stuff too like yesterday we played tennis at a local park.

Hope to find a great local support system here... TIA ;)

I'd rather be hated for being me than loved for something that I'm not!

Never criticize a person until you've walked a mile in their shoes... that way you're a mile away & you have their shoes!

Happy New Year. A little info about me:
I am 43 and single, however 6 nieces and nephews keep me very busy. I am a middle school science teacher in South Central Los Angeles, but live in Orange County close to Disneyland and Knott's Berry Farm. My dream vacation is 3 months exploring Europe. Things I like to do are cook, quilt, and spend time with my friends and family. I am excited to try this and look forward to seeing results.

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. -Confucius

Hi all! I am a wifey, mamabird to 2 BEAUTIFUL little girls, friend (yes, the crazy one), caretaker, dog walker, house cleaner (well sometimes ;D), life scheduler, playdate maker, bill payer, negotiator, and the list goes on and on. I love my life and am grateful for the crazy chaos I am fortunate to have, but at times it reaches fever pitch and I'd like to eat 2 cans of whipped cream with whipped cream on top under the covers with my music BLARING to block everyone out! My weight has become the underlying factor to the angry & miserable mood I encounter more and more frequently and my family deserves a happy mommy and wifey, so I joined Spark to help me get in the mix and get this weight off with the support of people traveling this road too! I was navigating through different member pages and have to admit, you are all incredible inspirational and motivational, so thanks for giving me a kick in the hinney I so desperately needed!!

Change is a choice. Not an easy choice, because it really takes work to turn around your negativity, but keep making the choice and you will see that shift happens.

Today, connect with your intention to change. The more you choose activities and people that support your forward movement, the stronger that part of you will get.

Hi there. I'm a southern California native but live in Hawaii until my husband retires in a few years. We plan to return to the Golden State sometime in 2015. In the meantime, I travel back to California several times a year to see family (and go to Trader Joe's!)

Hi Miss Marilyn!

I'm in San Diego and would love to be friends...I have about 100 lbs to lose but girl, I'm only going to shoot for a goal weight of 200 or the task might become too difficult. I just started too so let me know if I can help in any way! You are the same age of my youngest daughter and if I'm not too old, we can do this together.

Have a marvelous day emoticon

GM Everyone! My name is Carina and I am a native San Diegan and live out in East County. I would love to find a Spark folks who are in our general area, I work in the San Diego area but live out amongst some of the best casinos in Cali! Thank goodness I am not a big fans of those casino buffets or I would be in some deep you-know-what!

Like many people here, I too am a work in progress and have struggled with my weight my entire life. I thought I was "okay" with it until recently my youngest daughter was married and when I saw myself in the unstaged photos, I laughed so hard I thought my teeth would fall out of my head! I am so not a vain woman but my seeing my big butt next to my granddaughter's made me look like gargantuan woman!! emoticon

But seriously, I am a good listener and love great advice so if anyone is looking for another
Spark pal, please let me know...it's always easier to travel with a friend when the journey may long and difficult at times. I work many hours but always have times for friends...God Bless!

PS...if you play WWF or Wordfeud, then we're already friends!

Hi, my name is Marianne and I'm a California native, recently retired, who's trying to put myself first by focusing on healthy living. I've had a weight problem for much of my adult life. My husband is finally onboard my healthy living bandwagon, which is nice because we can support each other to improve our health. We were both history teachers for many years and love to travel, especially to see family. I'm still struggling with regular exercise but am determined to change my habits for the better. Like many, I'm a work in progress.
