When you are ready, just let me know. Remember we are there to get better, so nothing to be "shy" about.

Any other takers? I'm going to be at Fit 19 tomorrow morning.

well, being that i am painfully, chronically shy, let me keep working out on my Wii, and I won't cancel my membership, and we'll see if I can get my butt there and meet people. :)

Mary, so glad to hear from you again. I would be glad to meet with you and anyone else who wants to. I've had quite a bit of experience lifting so would be pleased to get you back into the weight area. Just let me know if you want to meet up, what day/time and we can aim for it. Boopster and I try to hook up as often as possible at the gym, so the more the merrier!

Great idea! I know I need to get back to the gym and I now that Janet is already back in there. So, maybe we can find a time for many of us to meet and pool our knowledge. emoticon

Hi, all, I go to Fitness 19 also -- in fact, I just came from there! In the beginning, I worked out with a trainer that I loved, but he had to transfer me to a different trainer in the middle of my sessions due to his promotion. I liked the new trainer, but she had a different style that I didn't connect with as much. Since then, I have a hard time knowing what to do in the weight room, so I end up just running on the treadmill. Maybe a group of Thornton Sparkers can meet to help each other navigate F19???

Robin, maybe we could meet up at Fit 19 and do a workout together. Would hate for you to give up on it because of some poor trainer. We can get a good workout in without you going away feeling ill, maybe a bit sore emoticon , but not ill. Let me know.

You know, I have a membership at Fitness 19 on 128th and Colorado that I was going to go in and cancel this week, since I haven't been there but twice last year. I signed up with my neighbor before they even opened and was very excited to go with her. However, she got pregnant and lost all desire to work out... and unfortunately I lost the desire too... I had 5 sessions with a trainer there, and I left feeling physically ill and in excruciating pain every time, even after I told her and asked to take it a little easy. My last session with her was in January 2009... Anyway, maybe I'll hang on to it a bit longer; although I really am loving my Wii Fit... :)

Robin, love to hear about the results with the Wii. I just got us the Wii Step, now I need to find a program that utilizes it. I'm going to look into the newer workout programs. I'm a member of Fitness 19 over on 128th & Holly so I have that as an option for working out, too. Now if the temp would warm up and melt this snow I could get out more to walk. Time to get back to training for my next race. Glad to have you onboard.

My name is Robin and I have been an occasional user of SP for 3 years. I started using it originally to lose weight, so I could get pregnant. No work out plan I could formulate could hold my attention longer than a week and I quickly gave up. Slowly many of the women in the group I was in were getting pregnant and leaving and I got discouraged.

So, this Christmas I decided to get myself a Wii and borrow Fit from my pregnant neighbor. I have had it less than a week and already I have lost 7 pounds. It is so encouraging; it was exactly the start I needed. (I should mention, about 2 weeks before I got the fit, I started trying to eat every 2-3 hours with small meals; similar to Jorge Cruise's 3 Hr Diet)

Hit the reset button at 263 and I am at 248.9 today. I am so pumped and excited.

One of my goals is to be able to go for a bike ride with my husband that lasts longer than 10 minutes... so bring on the sun!!!
