Is this team still going?

I have washboard abs. They're just civered by a couple of loads of laundry.

Every accomplishment begins with the decision to try.


A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.

It's very difficult to go back and make a brand new beginning, but you can always start from now and make a brand new ending.

Welcome to Louisiana Kim.

A Farewell to CAN'T
This goodbye does not make me sad. I will not miss you. I have discovered what it feels like to do the unthinkable. The hard. The long. The challenging. You have no business here anymore. From now on, difficult will seem doable. I will see the impossible as simply not-yet-conquered. Farewell, Can't. You will haunt me never again. Hello, Can. Welcome to my world.

Hey everybody. My name is Kim. Right now I am living in west Ky but my husbands job is going to be transferring us to the Hahnville area. Although I most likely wont go until may of 2013, I have a son I don't want to move until he graduates. I am looking very forward to getting back to the south. I would like to meet some people in the area online so I will already know some folks when I get there.

You will make out fine in spite of the Great food. Remember, in the Big Easy along with the Great food is Great Music which can lead to moving your hands, feet and body to the beat.

One step, one step at a time, one step at a time in the right direction. Whenever you misstep remember to you can always move back in the right direction. emoticon

Wow Trishz,

Your weight is rocking downhill and with your busy move it will really begin to roll off - good luck with that.

Dee, how's your bro?

Have a safe trip Dee and prayers sent to your brother.

Just got home last from New Orleans...we found a home to lease in Metairie...the house I had my heart set on won't allow my cat even though she's spayed and declawed.

Now the fun begins with the movers!

Hi I'm Melissa. I have been living in New Orleans for 9 years now, but cannot blame the city for my weight struggles (although it certainly doesn't help matters!). I am glad I found you guys, it is great to have local support for our unique community and it's challenges.

Hello, I'm Jen and I'm a Junior at UNO.
I lived overseas for 2 years and weighed about 135lbs at a height of 5 feet 7 inches. I moved back to louisiana, quit smoking, quit walking and gained about 30 pounds in two years. I want to lose it!

My goal is to get back to the weight I am comfortable with, 135.
It's hard, mostly because I don't want to watch what I eat :D I've been working out for weeks now and haven't lost a pound, though I have seen some muscle growth. I think it's time to put away the sweets and creams and get serious.

I also don't eat red meat, and I've been a student of kundalini yoga for 11 years. If anyone knows a great place to do kundalini in the city please let me know! I haven't found a place yet since I've moved here.
Er, I'm also looking for a job, the restaurant I worked for just closed down...stupid economy.

I covet no man's soul, nor is mine to covet.

Hi everyone,
Native New Orleanian here. I've kind of spread myself too thin on sparkpeople by joining too many teams but I'll try to participate at least once a week. Does anyone else log on some days and find yourself on a team you did not join? That's happened to me a couple of times. Most recently this morning when I found myself on the spark Louisiana team. Seems like a nice group of folks, but I didn't join.
Spark Louisiana is at at least logical. But I've also found myself on teams that had little or no relevance to me. (GERD sufferers? belly dancers?)Anyway I'll be leaving the other New Orleans team and focus on this one. Hope we can inspire one another and make our journey more fun and interesting.

Hi NOLA!!

My name is Marci and I live in New Orleans. I have been here a little over a year. I am from Rochester, NY. My husband was born and raised here, but we have been living in NY for the past 12 years. He missed his home so we packed up the kids and came back in August 07. I really love it done here. Although the snow a couple of weeks ago made miss Rochester a little bit. Hope to get to know all of you soon. Good luck!!

Salut!

Been browsing SP for a few days now and wish I had known about this site sooner.

For me it's about living consciously and with simplicity. I have discovered (and am still discovering) the types of physical activities I love and doing those quite regularly. Also exploring what else is in the fitness world that I could enjoy.

It's been a lifestyle change mostly. Making a few changes and cranking up the exercise let me drop my first 65. But then I fell off the wagon and gained back 15. It partly because I am an extremist by nature (partly due to being bipolar) and I overworked myself and burned out. Now I see that I have to maintain a healthy balance and that's what I am attempting to do.

I need to lose 20 more pounds to put me at the very top of my normal weight range but I am pushing for 50- it'll leave me in comfortably in a healthy range. I don't like the thought of being 5 pounds away from being overweight again and I just want to push myself to a new level.

Hope everyone has a super week!

Iris

Good Morning, Trishz and All Team Members:

Since I became a co-leader today I would like to get some SPARK in this team. New Orleans has never been a quiet little town, it's full of variety and the spice of life. LET'S SPARK UP THIS TEAM.

I agree with Trishz, let's do a new team challenge, any ideas anyone? emoticon I put in one challenge that many of you may already do, start easy in the Big Easy - drinking those 8 cups of water a day.

Morning!

I recieved a notification this morning that a new person has joined our team MIZZDR....welcome, welcome!

Lakota and I are both new members also and we seem to be keeping each other company here while trying to build the team up. We're not sure what happened to all the old members..they disappeared! emoticon

I'm going away for the holidays so I'll be MIA for a week and I believe Lakota might be gone also but I'm hoping you'll stick around and help us build a strong team!

We look forward to getting to know you MIZZDR.

I guess so. I went to the SparkPoints board and looked up the top 20 New Orleans sparkers and sent them an invitation to join. I received a couple of thanks for the heads up, but haven't seen anyone new post. We did have one member who joined the challenge.

Hi Lakota

Just love your home page!

I've always found different cultures fasinateing.
Good luck with your weight loss.....take it one day at time and set mini goals instead of large ones. It can be difficult at times especially if your going through medopause like I am but I'm not giving up...LOL....I've been with spark for awhile now and the tools they offer are great!

Hello everyone

My name is Trish...right now I don't live in New Orleans but will be moving your way come January so I thought it would be a good idea to join a team in your area now so I could get to know everyone and you all could give me a few pointers about your city. I did visit New Orleans last October for my birthday but of course I just did all the touristy stuff.
Were thinking of looking for a house to lease either in the Metairie area or the North Shore...since I'm an outsider you can well understand I'm terrified at this point of hurricanes.
I look forward to getting to know you all and need your encouragement and motivation to lose this weight....I seem to be losing the same 25 pounds over and over again...HELP!!!!!

Hello fellow Big Easy,

My name is Julie and I am new here to SP. I was doing SlimFast's website and met a women on there who has become a friend of mine now, her name is Robin. She told me about SP and was able to find her on here and get her as a friend. I have been floating around finding groups to join. When I found people from NOLA I was so happy. Everybody has been so nice to me. However people from other parts of the country just don't know how we live here. We seem to have a celebration for everything, that's one reason why I love the city & it's people. I can't wait to meet everyone & share some cooking ideas. Drop by and say hello to me, I could use your support. Have a great day today.


Julie

I know what it means to miss New Orleans.

Hi all! My name is Tamara, 28 years old, and I'm currently living in Covington, LA. Our house in the city was destroyed by Katrina, but we will be returning this November. I've been a Sparker for 3 days now and my goal is to lose 15-20 pounds, tone up and get my energy back (not to mention my high school body)! I'm loving the program and support I have recieved so far. I look forward to getting to know all of you better. Good luck!

Hey all,

I don't think I remembered to introduce myself when I joined this team. I'm Amanda and I live in the LGD. I'm a 4th year medical student at Tulane.

I'm also a long-time Sparker (since '03). Nice to meet all of you!

Hi, my name is Sharon and I live in Kenner. I am now the largest I have ever been and started a diet (again) and exercising 4 weeks ago. So far I have lost 7 pounds. My husband is finally being supportive (and not cooking high fat or fried foods). That is a big help.

Hi, my name is Molly and I live in River Ridge. I'm going to lose about 140 lbs and I'm hoping sparkpeople will help me get there!

Sometimes it's tough b/c I'm always busy (I'm a grad student at UNO, where I work ~30 hours/week and I also have another full time job), but I'm not going to let that be an excuse anymore...after all, everybody's busy, right?!

"On-Plan" Highest Streak: WWD

Current Streak:

1st 10% goal: 240.2 lbs by 6/10/07 (-26.7 lbs)

Hey everybody.. I just wanted to say thanks for inviting me to your team! I'm on my way to my goal but I think I'm pushing my date back a littl. I work full time and I'm a full time student as well so I stay pretty busy. My new driving force is a trip I'm taking to the bahamas for my birthday. I want to be in tip top shape!It starts now....(for real)

Hi, I'm Jen. I live in New Orleans; back again after being displaced for a while. It's good to find people from here. I've done every diet in the book, and some that weren't. I'm hoping I can give it another shot with Sparkpeople and make it work this time.
P.S. Congratulations, Sarah!

Hey everyone. I'm Sarah. I live in New Orleans. I'd love to join the group but right now I'm 26 weeks pregnant so I'm not too interested in losing weight for a while. However, I'll be your cheerleader and join back in after the baby's born and I'm looking to lose the baby weight! Best of luck to all of yo!

Hi my name is Anne and I live in New Orleans. My goal is to lose enough weight that I feel like I am in the body I want to be in ( I am guessing that is about another 20 lbs, but who knows). I hope everyone is out enjoying this beautiful weather and Happy St. Pats Day!

My Name is Lisa and I am living in Slidell. I am trying to loose about 15 lbs, to look and feel better... Summer is coming up fast and it would be nice to be looking slender in my suit this year. So far Sparkpeople is working great for me!
