Hi Judy and welcome! I've been looking for a workout buddy too. I'm a member of Gold's gym, they have lot of deals and I'm sure with the new year coming they will have membership deals like crazy. When your a member almost all the classes are included (they have a few that are extra) - and they have Zumba at all the gyms... in fact, I have been wanting to go but have found excuses not to. What does your schedule look like for work? I'm an RN and work 3 days a week, but I am off for the New years untilt through 4th. I'm pretty sure I can bring a guest to one of the gyms - at the very least you can sign up online @ goldsgym.com for a one week free membership. We'll get to zumba one way or another.... emoticon emoticon

I'm taking tai chi also this coming new year, I am committed to eating healthier. so I'm excited

Hello Everyone! My name is Vanessa. I've been on SP since about March 2010 but started my weightloss journey at the end of November 2009. I have lost about 18 lbs at last weigh-in. Since my time on Spark alone I've been mostly treading/maintaining. But I'm about to whip it in high gear. :-)

I do NOT live in the San Antonio area. But I have visited once. :-) I live in the DC/MD/VA metropolitan area. I was born and raised here. So, why do I want to join the SA SparkTeam? Simple. You guys are the coolest, most supportive, uber-active group here on Spark!! So, after oogling and drooling after this team for many months I have decided to go ahead and JOIN and get my 2011 started off right!!! I'm encouraged just being a member! 2011 is going to be MY YEAR!!!

So, I hope you all don't mind my intrusion. I was invited and assured by a few members that it would be alright for me to join and that I would be welcome. So, regardless of geographic location, I plan to stay. :-)

I agree with you Rhonda about setting goals instead of resolution. I do not believe in resolutions so I would rather work toward a goal and see progress. Happy New Year to you also.

Happy New Year (coming 2011) to All 12,400 + SA sparkers on this team - at least according to the members count on the main team page --- If ya'll don't kno me, I'm Rhonda, I'm 34, am 5'4" and need to loose about 90 lbs. In 2009, I followed Big Daddy Weave's (Christian Band) 90 in '09 - the lead singer was working on loosing 90 lbs - I lost nothing. This past year I went with a 10 in 2010 - meaning being a size 10 - nope still at plus sizes. So, I'm working on a catch phrase for 2011... and setting goals instead of a new year's resolution.

Hi, I'm Matt. I joined up on Monday. I have lived in San Antonio since 2002. Since that time, I've weighed 305 lbs, 245 lbs, and right now I'm somewhere in between those 2 numbers. So far I have been able to change my eating habits in a positive way and will be dusting off my gym membership card next week. I'm trying to develop a healthier, more active lifestyle and have set a goal of 220 lbs for summer 2011. Hope to talk to you soon!

I'm Sandy. I live in Schertz and work in the Medical Center. Have 75 pounds or so that I'd like to lose for good. Still looking for that inner "spark" that will allow me to overcome my whacked out relationship with food. So glad to find that this is an active San Antonio community of Sparkers.

Believe in yourself, trust the process, change forever.

Hello everyone. My name is Boris. I have changed careers from personal training and boot camps to financial advising. I used to workout like 10 times a week, but due to the career change I have really slowed down. I will work my way back into the gym so my shirts will be packed with muscle again.

Hi everyone!!

I just celebrated my 3 month anniversary here at SP! I'm loving it! So far I've lost 32lbs and am on my way to an even healthier me!

I live in Castle Hills. I'm 34, married to my best friend of 17 years, no children, graduate student, and currently unemployed. I was a nanny of 4 for 5.5 years and got a bit worn out. I quit this past August to focus on my studies and myself!! I'm loving life but am currently looking for a job. I need a bit more crazy busy in my life! hahahaha!

Check out my SparkPage and let's be friends! Take care of yourselves and get out and enjoy Mother Nature!!!!

Hi Erin! My name is Stacey. I live near Lytle and LaCoste. So we are not too far apart. We have horses, dogs and cats..lol. Oh, and fish. I would love to learn how to knit. Are you teaching yourself with a book, or is someone showing you how?

Hi! I'm Erin, 32 year old special education teacher. I live just west of San Antonio, near Castroville. I love animals, hence living in a rural area, we have goats, chickens, cats, dogs, reptiles, and a cockatiel. I'm also learning to knit.

I have 60 pounds I want to lose, just need to get my booty in gear! I'm really excited about the SPICE challenge because I think it will help keep me accountable.

Hi Brandy,
Welcome! This is an awesome supportive group. I love being part of the San Antonio Spark team. I have 2 boys both 13 and I live on the southside of town, but I work in the Medical center area. I am 37 and married a little over a year now. My husband and I are also working on weight loss so this site is very helpful. Check things out and message anytime you want. Mostly have fun on the journey to the new you!

Brandy, glad you are here! I started back on SparkPeople in September with 109 pounds to lose and thanks to a lot of support and motivational people on the San Antonio team (along with my own efforts, of course) I have now lost 16 of those pounds. Stick with your goals and love yourself enough to want better health and stay active, both through exercise and on here through posts and reading the really great articles. This group has real life meet ups now and then and trust me, they are WONDERFUL! You can do this!

Hi everyone. My name is Brandy. I have lived in San Antonio since 2006, but grew up in the Schertz/Cibolo area. I am 33 years old. I am married and have 4 kids, 2 sons ages almost 14 and almost 15, and 2 daughters ages 11 and 12. I live close to the medical center. I am on weight loss journey which is going to take me a long time. I want to lose about 135 more pounds. I started using Spark and the weight is starting to come off slowly. I have lost 8 pounds this month. So I am very happy about that. I would love to meet some new friends!

emoticon Rochelle! I'm the daughter of a retired military man. My parents decided SA was the place to retire when my dad was stationed here in 1970. I'm so glad they did!

You've come to the right place. There are so many topics, challenges, and WONDERFUL people here just ready to support, inspire, and motivate you. The San Antonio team is becoming so active thanks to Lillie (VEGLILS) and her co-leaders. Looking forward to sharing the journey with you! Again, WELCOME!!

Hello everyone~ My name is Rochelle. I am new to the SA area as of this past June. I am a mother of three great children 17,14, and 13...I am married to my best friend, Chris for the past three years....

The Army brought us here and we're so Happy for these orders and plan on staying here when Chris retires in the next two years.

One of my very best friends introduced me to SP this past Spring.. I joined, but really did not do much with it. I was not happy with myself when I got here, but the fact that I have packed on another 15 pounds since June.. I decided it was time to do something about it.

I know it can be done. I managed to lose 55 pounds on my own with fitness and healthy eating back in 2002-2003 on my own.. and maintained for 5 years... Not quite sure where I lost course....

I really hope I can stay focused and get back the me that I love.. the HEALTHY ME...

I look forward to meeting new friends who share the same goal... Thanks for listening to my speech....

Happy Health to you ALL!!!!

~Rochelle

Hello all! My name is Suzanne and I have been continuously around these parts since July 6, 2009. I have lost 55 lbs since I started on my journey. I have been married to my husband D for 16 years and we have 2 children 11 (DS) and 8 (DD) with #3 on the way!

Spark has changed my life and helped me exceed my original goal of 30, maybe 40 lbs! My spark friends are a blessing to me.

I am currently training to run the rock n roll half marathon Nov 14th! See you all at the finish line!

Suzanne

Hi, my name is Sandra and I turn 37 this Thursday. I have been married to an awesome husband since June of 2009 and have 2 sons that are both 13. One is my son and other is my stepson. I love camping and being outdoors especially this time of year. I was on weight watchers in 2008 and lost 22 pounds in 5 months. I had a knee injury and could not get back on track after that so here I am working on losing again with much more motivation this time. I want to buy a bike and hopefully train for the bike to the river for next year. That is a long term goal for me since I am not physically fit. I would love to join all the other people on spark who own bikes once I buy mine. I am looking forward to meeting many new friends and meeting my goal weight of 140. I just bought a stationary bike that I have used almost every day unless I do some other form of exercise. I love Being part of sparkpeople because it keeps me wanting to do more for my health.

There will not be another Bike to the Beach - I am part of the MS Society here in town - I'm on the Walk MS - San Antonio task force (I've got a team if anyone wants to join us - Suz's Super Stars) and the reason the ride was moved from the original Bike to the Beach course to our current Ride to the River course was that there were so many complaints from riders about the danger of the road that it was decided that this was a better option. We drove 90% of the course last year to see if we thought we could do it (like 2 or 3 months before the ride) and we just couldn't get the money together to register. This time we are looking into sponsorships for both my RNR 1/2 and the MS 150! Let me know if you want more info - I've sort of got the inside scoop! *giggle*

Brandyn I just came from the store and saw the cutest thing and I thought of you. A lady who was probably close to my age (50) was riding a 3 wheeled bike. I bet you don't need training wheels for that! I thought it was cool looking!

Thanks Teresa...but that would probably be frustrating for you. My biggest fear is falling and breaking something so I really have trouble staying on the bike. I'm gonna try to get over that someday soon emoticon

And hey, I met Mary (MYFEETHURT) yesterday for the first time. Were your ears burning? She mentioned walking with you, Suzanne, and Kim. emoticon

Welcome Teresa! My hubby and I cycle (when I'm not pregnant) and LOVE it. I'm due literally any day now and as soon as I'm allowed to exercise after delivery I'm back to prepping for my 5k events and back on my bike! I have a gorgeous Cannondale F6 that I love but I've not been able to ride for too long now! We want to train for the MS 150 for next year (intended to do it this year but I was 37 weeks pregnant for it) and I also intend to train for the 1/2 RNR next year. (I'll have my little one with me for both events :D)

Teresa, I bought a bike for myself two years ago and have riden it once. It's one of those expensive "coaster brake cruisers" from Trek with an "automatic transmission" so I don't even have to change gears...LOL..a real cream puff bike in girly pink. I know it isn't a serious cyclist bike but I think now that it is cooler I may have it taken from storage, tuned up and maybe ride the paths at McAllister now and then. It didn't occur to me until reading your comment that this would be a GREAT asset in my fitness program! Thanks for the inspiration! emoticon

Hi my name is Teresa and just turned 48. Single and loving it. I am a cyclist. I ride when ever I can but with the shorter evenings coming on it will be just on the weekends. Anyone looking to ride come by and say hi. I also walk and am training for the RNR half marathon on the 14th of November with two other sparkers. Anyone that wants to train with us let me know. I started this journey at 241(2001) and now I'm at 186. Still have about 30 pounds to go. I'm always looking for help.
Thanks for being here! emoticon emoticon

Welcome, welcome, welcome! Carole, let me tell you that you are going to love this group. There is so much support, encouragement, and care here for the asking. There is such a feeling of family among the active members that you find yourself almost unable to NOT do the work and take better care of yourself because you WANT to be part of everyone's support system. There are a number of members struggling with the plateau issue or who have just broken free of it, so you will find a lot of advice on that. By the way, 30 pounds is AWESOME! GOOD FOR YOU!!

Hi all. My name is Carole. I'm 52 and am owned by 3 furball cats. I was married to DH Bert but he passed away 3 years ago from cancer. Since then, I'm really feeling lost.
I've lived in Cibolo for over 7 years now. I work at BAMC and walk every day for health. I've been on Spark for about 4 years now but have recently been motivated to lose 50 lbs -- So far I've last 30 but have hit a major plateau and need to re-commit. I was a member of another Spark San Antonio team but they've kind of fizzled out so I decided to switch teams and here I am.
I have limited options for exercises due to chronic pain issues but I like to do what I can do to help myself. Anyway, there's my story and I'm sticking to it lol. Hiii !!

Hi! My name is Elva, I'm 37, I'm a SAHM, our beautiful baby girl is 4 months old. I have an incredibly supportive hubby who is truly the love of my life. I am so blessed with all the love that I am surrounded by in my life. My problem is that it's been a very long time (about 15 years) since I can recognize the person staring back at me in the mirror. So I decided that it was time to quit complaining and start doing, after all nobody else can do it for me. So I started at the end of August at 245, and I am down to 225. I've got 75 to go by next September. Now I just have to figure out all the in's and out's of this site, it has so much to offer! And I look forward to losing with all of you!

Hi everybody!!!
My name is Diana. I am 23 yrs old. I moved from California about 1yr 9months ago to San Antonio. It's different here a little hard to get use to but it's good.

I'm here at Sparkpeople because I have over 100 pounds I want to loose. Before I found Sparkpeople I lost 30 pounds, but I still want to loose more. Ever since I was a little kid I have been over weight but here I am to change that. Thank God for Sparkpeople and the wonderful community for all the support!! Thank you Lillie!!! (:

Hello,
My name is Tanya. For about the millionth time I am trying to get down to 130. I started again in August and although I have been working out and eat mostly right and within calorie range, I haven't lost a single pound or inch. =( I try to stay motivated though. My goal is to be 130 by summer.

I am a full time college student and not working. My time is taken up by school, my finance, and 1 year old baby Patrick(terrier mix dog). I have a latin cardio dance (1 hr and 10 mins of weights and abs)course at school and try to hit the gym at least once a week. As a motivation to work out more, I am participating in the 85 miles for 85 years at SAC.

Hi everybody!

I'm Jennifer, 36, mom of one son (18) and married to the love of my life. I work full time and go to school full time so my life is pretty busy. I started on SP back in June after a 1-year hiatus and I'm ready to jump in feet first and get healthier!

I'm a very high energy person, and I am a big kid at heart. I love being outdoors, camping, hiking, swimming, and fishing. I also love reading, video games, making jewelry, music, and I'm a huge movie buff. I'm looking forward to getting to know everyone better through the upcoming challenges!

Ok I guess this is where I say emoticon my name is Leslie. I am 33 yrs young with 3 kids *i will talk of a 4th that I gave up for adoption here and there* I have been married for almost 14 yrs on October 12th. I grew up in San Antonio most of my life went to southwest highschool left for a few yrs and came back in 95. I have always been overweight since when I can remember being teased and all. Even if I was in the cheerleading and other sports still got called names. Go figure to how nice people can be. Anyways, I started this with 230 pounds on me. I am currently sitting at 205 pounds. I have two goals ahead of me. My first is to achieve 175. After that goal is reached off to 145 it will be, which will put me in the normal range. I stand 5'4. I am half way there to goal number 1 and going strong. I do smoke which is one goal I am gonna try and quit soon. I manage to go to the gym every other day *sometimes I end up waiting two days out before heading back* I do my best to be motivational and with positive words but beware I can be VERY outspoken and tell you how it is sometimes. So thats a bit of me in a nutshell.

Happy early birthday, Felicia!

I'm MaryJane. I turned 50 in May...at least my body did. I don't feel any different in my mind than I did half a lifetime ago. I am still having trouble wrapping my mind around such a middle-aged number, but it is what it is and I've never been one to fit into a mold of any kind.

I'm married to my second (and last!) husband of nearly 6 years. He made me believe in things I had long given up on. It doesn't hurt that he is nearly 10 years younger than me, either. Funny, he's younger yet he grounds me. I've quit working in order to care for my aging and disabled parents, my mom in particular, who has a multitude of health problems and moderate dementia. My husband has been so supportive in this. Sharing a home with your parents at this stage in life was not something we planned on, but hey...it's Mom and Dad.

I'm Mom to 2 daughters and a son, all of whom are grown. My daughters have given me 2 grandsons aged 9 and 11 months. I keep the 11 month-old while his mommy works and goes to college.

I was "voluptuous" in my teens and 20s, which means a little heavy but curvy enough to drive the guys nuts. Those curves just kept getting larger over the years until they merged into one big lumpy mass of body on a very small frame.

I started on Spark at the first of the year and then just slide back into my unhealthy habits until a heart attack in July sent me running back in panic, determined this time to make the time and effort and love ME enough to do this for ME and ME alone...cause I wanna live forever!

I've found so much support here and look forward to making more friends who are as determined as I am to be done with being unhealthy and are ready to start living NOW! emoticon

Hi I'm Felicia, I'm turning the big 4-0 on October 10 - which is one of the things that spurred me to join Spark.

I'm not married, but I've been seeing my awesome boyfriend for a year now. The only kids I have are my little rat terrier (Lucky) and my tabby cat (Mojo).

I work in marketing for a company located near the SA airport. I just started working there in July after a month of unemployment in June. Stressful! But I survived. The new job is very cool, but I sit for most of the day at my desk. :/

I've been overweight most of my life and I've just learned to live with it. But with the new decade looming on the horizon AND going out with a guy who likes to kayak, bike and all that good stuff, I figure it's time to actually DO something about it instead of coasting through it.

Looking forward to getting more involved with Spark and possible meeting some like-minded SA folks! emoticon

Hi! My name is Brandyn, I'm 48, married. Have 4 cats, 2 dogs and I work in a hospital on the Riverwalk.

I started SP in late January after reading about it in a Magazine. Started off slow with logging food, reading articles and winning points. Added aerobics and ST in March and became more active on boards/teams by April. The support on the teams has been fantastic and has made a big difference in my weight loss journey.

I've lost 35lbs so far with an original goal of losing 45 lbs by December 2010. I might change that goal to 55 or 60lbs but we'll see how I feel when I get there. emoticon

Hello everyone,

I am Cuyler. I am 23 years old and just moved back in with my mom.

I am sooo happy to have found some wonderful people that want to help get this team going! I think that they are doing an AWESOME job! I took over the group about 4 months ago. I had a really crappy summer, my boyfriend of almost 4 years and I split and I moved back to Waco. I guess I just wasn't in a good place to be motivational. :) I am good now and I would love to stay active on this team.

My name is Lee and I am 34. Proud dad of a very smart and active 12 yr old 7th grade girl. I am actually trying to shed some fat and put on more muscle. I am in capoeira (an afro-brazilian) martial art, but had a severe sprain 2 months back. Not being able to put much weight on I gained ten pounds...and it was not muscle. That combined with my daughter's sports practice schedule, her normal 1-2 hours of home work, and a usual 10.5 hour work day make getting to the gym "challenging". Looking forward to seeing more post and keeping motivated.

You don't know where you are going unless you know where you came from.

Hi Everyone, My name is Lisa, I'm 30 years old, married for 11 years, and we also have a 10 year old son. I'm starting over again for the 3rd time, I pretty sure I have hit rock bottom, I am currently at my heaviest weight, and it came along with heart problems, breathing problems and sleep problems. I am sooo ready to get this weight off!!
We just started 2nd biggest loser contest at work, I lost 20 bucks last time, and I am determined not to lose my 40 this time, and if I do I want something to show for it!
I made a promise to myself that I will track my food intake, exercise every chance I get, and to ask for help when I need it.
I was thinking of joining Weight Watchers, but then I was thinking about Curves, any of you all had any experience with those? I'm just looking for a low cost way of getting the support that I need.

Thanks to all!! Hope to see ya'll around the forums!

Lisa

Hi Lillie!

I'm Suzan. I lost 56 pounds just about 2 years ago and had maintained it pretty steadily. I found out in March that I was (already) 2 months pregnant. Now I'm 35 weeks along - due 10/30/10 - and have gained about 30ish pounds (give or take on any given day). I stand 5'9" tall so I have very little tummy - which is fun yet interesting when people ask me how far along I am and then don't believe me when I tell them. My goal for November - early 2011 is to lose all of the weight I've gained (most of it is truly baby related with very little fat being put back on my body) and to get back in shape. Since I will be turning 39 on 10/27 I really have to make sure I get back in shape as fast as I can so I can keep up the good work through 40! OH yeah - we are having a girl! I also have an older daughter who will be 18 years-old in December. These are my only two children. I'm married to my best friend and soul mate. We are big on cycling and I do 5k events as often as I can. My biggest goal for 2011 is to participate in the San Antonio Rock n Roll 1/2 marathon! WOOT! OH yeah one last thing - I'm a San Antonio born and bred!
