Hi guys! I'd love to get together for walking at the beach (or anywhere else really). I just turned 40 last month, and I'm trying to use that as motivation to lose some weight and get back in shape. I'm married and have two teenage daughters. I've worked for the Navy at Port Hueneme for 21 years. I was born and raised in Oxnard, and moved to Ventura in my late teens, so I'm truly a local! I'm not a member of a gym, but I try to take classes at Restorative Exercise ( -- awesome place!) when I can afford it (hubby was out-of-work for almost 2 yrs, and we're still recovering financially.) I used to have a friend who motivated me to run a lot, and taught me to enjoy racing (can you call it racing when you run a 10 minute mile??) Although I haven't done it in years, my closet is still plastered with race bibs that remind me how much I'd like to get back into it.

Hi - I'm Renee. I'm 38 and have only lived in Ventura for about a year now. I am originally from Northern California & four years ago, my husband & I both got tired of the crime and heat of the central valley, left our jobs, friends & beautiful home to live on the Oregon Coast. We started a boutique there & enjoyed the quaint little town only for a year. Then we had what was equivalent to a hurricane & we ran... SO glad to be here in Ventura & have the sun again. We have been married for 13 years - most of which I've been overweight. I started gaining the year we got married b/c my mom passed from ovarian cancer so it really affected me. I belong to 24 hour fitness, though I rarely go. I really need to find a workout buddy for Turbo classes or to just go walking at the beach. I want to start running, but I'm not quite there yet.

Hey Lavender - keep trying we might have an active member board yet!

I'm a 43 yr old mother of two middle schoolers. Married to my husband for what will soon be 18 yrs. I work part-time, but my main job is taking care of my kiddos. I've been a member of SP for two years now, but have not lost any real weight in more than six months. Need to be more active physically, but have been hindered by a lot of emotional eating as well.

"Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you."
I Thessalonians 5:16-18

"Isn't everything you have and everything you are sheer gifts from God?...You already have all you need." 1 Cor. 4:7-8 MSG

Okay I know I probably look like someone crazy with all this sudden activity here. But I really would like to give this my all and I know there are others out there too. I know introductions have been made earlier; but lets do a refresher! Okay?

I am a 49 year old crazy woman. I am married to a great guy with lots of patience. I have two children one out of the house (yeahhhhhhh) and the other I dont want her to leave but I know in another year she will fly the coop; I work in Ventura for an attorney (yes that is where my stress happens) but I have him well trained; I am a foster parent to elderly horses as well as a volunteer for one of the horse rescues here in our area.My boys are 34 years old and a joy; have four cats, one dog, and chickens!I belong to a gym downtown which I am not impressed with but it does the trick; I do have a personal trainer when she is not dealing with her marital problems; I love to eat; I am active but have not lost any weight in many months; I put the scale away when I realized I was letting it rule my day. My clothes have been quite helpful; when they dont fit; I dont eat as much. I am very active on this site in fact I was a team leader for another ventura team however as much as I tried; no one was ready so I periodically checked it and moved on. I would love to find support and someone to hold me accountable; I would love to talk to someone with the similar issues and goals I have instead of having my thin best friend nod her head and tell me "You are beautiful just the way you are" in her size 3 frame. (still love her though}

So that is me! I hope very much to get to know you too. emoticon
