I have been at spark since March 22nd. I work out 5 days a week and I am trying to loose 12 more pounds. I want to have another baby and I am trying to get into better shape. I do not want to gain more than 30 pounds next time I have a baby. I want to continue to work out and be in better shape. It snowed last night and it is supposed to be spring time.

I haven't ever posted, so there's a first time for everything. I live in Moore Mt. but I work in Great Falls for six days and then I go home. I am just getting back to improving my health and getting this weight off. I am walking in the mornings before work, which means that I wake up at 4:15 and walk by 4:30. I walk on 10th ave because it it lit up. I get in a 30 minute walk before I start work at 7. at home I walk the roads where I live.

Hi all,

I haven't posted in a while to the team, but I am still here.

Since the weather got colder in the mornings outside, approx Oct, I have been walking Holiday Village Mall. I'd rather walk outside (for fresh air), yet the mall has stairs and ramps, which I also like. I am usually there around 7:45 am every morning, except Sunday. All are welcome to join me and my walking partner. We start off at the food court.
I would love to meet my fellow Sparkpeople, any ideas?
Hugz, Pam

I am a member of SparkPeople for several months then I gave it up also (due to laziness) and gained 15 lbs and now I am back to give it another try. Exercise is the tough part since I have Fibromyalgia I am in constant pain and I know that shouldn't stop me but it does.

This is great. To have sparkers from GF! I've been a member of sparks and this team for almost a year., Although I lost 50 lbs. I got lazy, and didn't work the life syle I know I should. But I am back to start over again. I gained all my weight back, plus. I quit smoking And I felt it was to hard to do both. But I finally admitted I just got lazy!

I hope to get to know you all better.

"this weather" is a wee bit chilly That's from the achy voice of arthritis, minor as it may normally be.
I found when I lived in CA (I'm MT native born/raised) that some folks, especially oriental, think it stays VERY COLD in MT ALL the Time...like below zero continually...It's warm enuf for a warm coat, gloves & a walk...a walk...a walk. Meet ya to walk sometime??

WELCOME...I'm kinda new to Sparkies but a Montana born'n'raised...not all by choice. If you would like to get out walking sometime, like maybe Gibson Park, By the River, Giant Springs Park or other area..give me a call. (453-7100) I'm 60, need more exercise than up'n'down the stairs on laundry day...& I enjoy getting out meeting new folks.

Does anyone here go to the Dog Park? While you're following your dog around, do you feel like you're getting exercise too? Or do you think it is too liesurely?

When do you like to go? Do you like it better when there are fewer dogs or more?

Just curious.

I noticed there are a few Great Falls members but no body has been posting for awhile. My sister is a SP member and so am I. I don't walk much because of health problems I have Fibromyalgia and arthritis so my exercise is limited. I know my sister was looking for a walking buddy and I can't walk as much as she would like. Her big problem is she does not have any transporation. I usually drive her to most places she needs to go. It is nice to meet all you Great Falls members,

Hello- I'm from Sunburst (about two hours north) does that include me on the GF group? I do go to GF for my shopping about once a month or so...
I'm not doing the Icebreaker, but I will be going to Helena on May 16th for the Race for the Cure. I try to do the race every year, but sometimes I just can't make it. I finished the 5K in 57 minutes last year (I was pushing my 5 month old son in a stroller) when I was only down 10 pounds. I am down 67 now, so I think it will be better. I will be pushing my son again, but this time he's a little older, and my husband will be joining us.

Even tho' I don't live in GF, it is our main hub for shopping. Am I still welcome in this group? The weather is Gorgeous, but the wind is driving me nutty. Would love to be out working with the horses, unfortunately inside work dominates today. Enjoy the day central MT, we are so lucky to live here.

2nd taking photos (cell ph) of everything I eat! Sets up pause & think. I erase it when I track it.

emoticon We did it GF SparkPeople! Elizabeth said we're on the board. How about the weather today?? 54 now, cloudyish, yet it really feels like we're into the spring thing. Maybe DST does help. I have been walking outside(10 min at a time) for the 3rd day in a row! I have OA in my knees. The last 3 yrs have been full of losses & being in emotional & physical pain gave me all kinds of reasons (excuses) to just be emoticon Luckily I made a change & resources just started popping up to help. Workin' on being content with baby steps here...

Hey there, GF members! You've got yourselves a sticky thread now, so you should be able to find this thread easily! Keep up the good work helping and encouraging one another - it makes a huge difference for weight loss success! Plus, the more you encourage one another on here, the more likely it is you'll keep your sticky thread! =D

Hi GF members. I just joined the SparkPeople and love it. I am trying to lose about 40lbs that just popped on in the last 6 months emoticon . I try to get to the city pool a couple times a week for excersize classes. I am looking forward to the group. Does anyone know how to put the weight loss chart on my profile?

Hi Tara! emoticon I'm from GF and after a crazy work month, SOME of my new healthy habits faltered. The most important one for me is using the Nutrition Tracker everyday. I had a pretty good thing going for about a month. My most difficult challenge is eating at regular times and NOT when I get home late ie 9:30 PM. Let's see if we can get GF into the top three city groups so more GF people will know this area has a thread.

Hello,

My name is Tara and I am thrilled to see people from Great Falls on here. I am 34, married with kids and needing to lose about 120 pounds or so. I have done Sparkpeople before, but quit... why? I have no earthly idea. I am back for good and really wanting to get involved with the site so not to lose my motivation. I am also looking for a workout/nutrition buddy!! Hope to get to know you all soon!

I am currently doing the EMS part of my degree. But if I hear of someone by that name I will ask. MSU has been a really great school with the small classes and the help is wonderful. I also have been having so much fun with SparkPeople. I feel like an advertisement telling everyone about it LOL. My husband is overseas and he looks at my page to see what I have been eating and and my workout everyday. Makes him feel like he is here with me and he can see my progess. I am so glad I found it.

Hello everyone. I just found and joined SparkPeople. This looks like it will be a great tool for me to use to lose the 15 pounds that I need to lose. I have been gaining weight for the last 3 years and I really have to get it off. I have been going to the Peak and I like it there. I can go to the base but I dont't know anyone there. I live over by the airport which is close to the gym so that is nice. I moved to Great Falls in August and go to school at MSU-COT for Paramedic/Nursing. I am also in the Army Reserves. Hence another reason I need to lose the weight LOL.

Great Falls as well. I seem to have a hard time getting to the GYM by myself since my husband was deployed and I also have an ever changing work schedule. If there is anyone who wants a work out buddy on base let me know.

hello ladies,
I just joined the bootcamp myself. i too live in Great falls, on the northside of town. I have lost 100lbs and want to loose another 50 by july. It is nice to see great falls in the running. My ex-husband is retired airforce and I still can use the base you need to give me more info. on the nutrition.

It looks like you have a spot for several different areas in Montana. That is a neat idea. I know being in the Great Falls area we have had a lot of wind the last couple of days. It will be nice to see that go away for a while.

Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man's character, give him power.

Hello Great Falls Residents!! This is a thread where we can all join in and chat - about anything and everything! I thought it would be nice to have a place where we could come together since we already have two things in common: living healthier and the place we live!
