Disclaimer, I was born in Chicago, and lived in the suburbs for a long time. I live in the south of France now, and there is no team that really applies to me. I hope you all dont mind if I join you. I was very active on Spark a few years back, then was very ill for a long time. But Im back now, getting into the swing of things.

Hi all. I'm from Chicago. I have a son, a dog, a cat, I have a lot of weight to lose, bad knees and a bad lower back. On good days I can push myself to walk for half an hour,. On bad days it takes me several short sessions to get that 10 minute daily minimum I make myself get. I miss going to the museums and walking around for hours looking at everything. Being able to do that again, even if I need to sit for a bit every hour or so is something I am working toward. I know I could rent a chair and go now, but right now having this as a goal gives me something that I really want to work toward.

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.

Good afternoon! I'm technically not a new member, but I've been away from Sparkpeople for a while now. My scale and fit of my clothes have been reminding me that I need to get back here. There has been some work stress, home stress, college-shopping stress, and financial stress going on, so it's time to make some changes where I can. This is one of them!

My name is Kelli and I live in Northern Illinois (near the WI border) with my husband and three kids (almost 18 yrs, 13 years and almost 12 yrs).

I'm starting again with the small changes and look forward to stopping in here frequently.

I hope you're all doing well. Talk to you again soon!

Take care,

Kelli

I've been in Chicago 4 years and I'm totally new to the whole "sparking" thing. I want to meet people in (or near) the city that are willing to go on group hikes, bike rides, or any other fitness activity. I need a handful of friends to help drive motivation and accountability.

Hi, I'm actually not a true Chicagoan....I live 15 miles west, Westchester. I have been on Spark since 2008, lost weight and then with aging, a fractured spine, and night shift, I gained it back. Excuses, excuses! I eat really healthfully (mostly) so I'm looking forward to getting the "old" me back. I have a lot of health promoting hobbies, weight lifting (I have a decent home gym), biking, kayaking, dog walking (german shepherd, named Hossa). Yes I am a Blackhawks fan to the core.

Hi Everyone!

I have been a member on SparkPeople for some time, but have been on and off. Now I am taking it seriously and keeping up with logging. It really helps me stay on track. I am looking to connect with people to see what they have learned on their journey and try new things! I look forward to meeting everyone!

Shannon
