Welcome Ivy! Congrats on getting to your goal weight! I only have a step tracker but it sure does help me get my steps. I am working towards getting 10,000 a day, but I am not there yet.

I have heard of NEAT and I agree it does work!

Hi my name is Ivy thus my SP name & photo. :) I have been here since 2012. I hit my goal weight last year in April and have maintained. I have a full bio on my sparkpage if you want to know more.
I have a fitbit one so I pay a lot of attention to steps/fitness minutes/sleep. I track my food with precision and use an excel sheet with obsession. LOL.
My goal is to exercise 2-3hrs/wk & 3-5x/wk. Otherwise to just keep active. Big believer in "NEAT" stands for NonExercise Activity Thermogenesis, which is scientist speak for moving around doing stuff that is not sport or exercise.

I look forward to checking in here as regular as possible, seeing what is happening in the area and reading/sharing lessons/fails/successes.

Oh, I forgot about that one. I used it when I was on vacation a while back! You are right it does work pretty well.

Well I am off to Kuna! :)

That is a good thing to do! I am also trying to stay within my calories.

Do you have a step counter? I am using a "bare bones" tracker. It only counts my steps. My DH and I try to get in a "heart healthy" walk in everyday. I haven't done one yet... but I need to in a little while.

I'm working on tracking food and staying within the calorie range this week. Next week I want to establish an exercise routine - or at least a rough idea of what it should look like for me.

Hi! My name is Rachael. Coming back to SparkPeople after several failed attempts. My first goal this time around is to participate consistently instead of quitting when the results don't come as fast as I may want them to. I recently moved from Nampa to Boise although I have lived most of my life in the Willamette Valley and Oregon coast.

I have been a spark member since 2010. I was active on spark that first year and then I let other things get in the way of being healthy. I finally decided to get back on track this year and became active on spark the last part July.

I would love to join in on the walks on Saturday. Are my little ones okay to come on the walk on Saturdays? I have an eight year old and a two year old. If not I can leave them home with my husband.

emoticon emoticon I tell you what if we can't find enough things to do we will make up our own fun stuff! But I will try to look into what is available. I really like going to the local parks here and walking around (and looking for birds while I am there, wink, wink). Yes, I am one of those bird watching nerds. tee hee

So excited to have the Boise Team active! I am busy mother of 3. My kids are 12,8, and 4. My husband is in graduate school and working full time, I am a full time mother and student. We moved back to the Treasure Valley after 6 years in Southeast Idaho. I lost a lot of weight (65 pounds) while living in Southeast Idaho, but have gained back 30 pounds. There was a lot of fun runs that I participated in and I miss those here in the Western Treasure Valley. I can't wait to find more things to do in the Treasure Valley and lose the weight I gained back.
Also I have been a member of Sparkpeople for a while but off and on in activity. I hope to stay active now and be successful.

The only thing you can't accomplish is the thing you don't start.

Hi! I feel so excited about this team! I am so glad you are back using SP! Sounds like you have a good start on your goals too!

I will work hard to try to find some things that make weight loss interesting - If there is such a thing! Lol I find humor helps me quite a bit! emoticon

Hi Christine! Glad to see that someone has made the Boise Team active again. I've been a member of SP for several years but inactive until a few months ago. I've decided it was time to get back on here as I've found it's the best way to track my food and also the best place to find new friends and support.
