Hope my team in northern Virginia is doing well. I really like SparkPeople for both the resources (information) and support it provides. I've been eating well for about 5 days straight now! And though I've spent most of my life not cooking much, I've been enjoying the recipes and ideas here, too.

Have a great rest of the week!

One day at a time.

I haven't been to either of those parks, but they sound great! I love Great Falls so I'll have to find time to check them out! :)

I'm in Arlington but lived in Alexandria for about 15 years. Huntley Meadows is a beautiful park. If you have a car, Roosevelt Island (shorter walk) and Great Falls (various options for different lengths and difficulties of hiking) are great. The great thing about this area is the abundance of trails and green space!

Welcome!!!! I joined about the same time you did. If you like to walk have you been to Jones Point or Huntley Meadows Park? Both very nice walks.

Hello Everyone!

I joined this website like a month ago, but kept putting off getting more involved; time for that to change! I've struggled with my weight all my life, particularly through high school and early college. My junior year I finally got on the right track to losing weight but let it slip away. Over the last year I've gained nearly 40 pounds as I stressed over graduating college, student loans, finding a job and getting into medical school. I've finally decided that I've had enough of feeling unhappy and not confident! Time for a serious overhaul! So, I'm just looking for some information, support and motivation to not only lose weight, but be overall happier because, at 22 or any age for that matter, it's not worth being so unhappy about something that I am completely in control of. I live in Alexandria so if anyone out there has some ideas for the area, or anyone else has suggestions on how to get started and stay on track, please feel free to message me!
Cheers!
Jordan

Yeah, they're supposed to reopen Safeway in March - all fancied up with a Starbucks and everything.

The reason I moved here in May was specifically for the trail. I want to start biking, used to run and plan to get back to it. It's nice to walk to the park.

I moved here last March from California and love, love, love this area. My sister and her family live closeby.

Do you live around here?

Cheers,
Carrie
