Hi, I'm back to Sparkpeople, I'm kind of an "off-and-on" dieter, I started about a week and a half ago and lost 6 pounds really quickly, I want to get this weight off again, I lost 60 pounds a couple years ago and then gained it all back - I've got 30 or 35 pounds to lose this time. I've been eating healthier and counting calories, I've only had 1 day that I've gone over so far, and I've been exercising (more) regularly, about 45 minutes to an hour, 3-5 days per week, sometimes more. I didn't get to go walking today because of the weather, but I'm going tomorrow, I've been walking my boyfriend's dog while he's out of town. I'm debating on joining Planet Fitness, it's $10/month with no commitment, I haven't decided yet.

Hello, Nice to meet people that live in the Wichita and surrounding areas. I have lived most of my life in Derby and Wichita. Starting over with my life style and changes so I came back to the Spark pages for support and encouragement. Love to walk at the great plains nature center and the zoo. Actually there is a lot of places to get out and enjoy for free or nearly free. Blessings to all!

Max

Hello Wichita! emoticon

My name is Liz. I have lived in Wichita for almost 5 years. I am originally from North Dakota. The time has flown by! I am excited to get to know you.

I have been a member of Spark People for over a year, but I am just now getting seriously committed to making some big changes. I am married and have 3 children. I want to set a good example for my family and I am excited to reach my goals.

Thanks for the Spark mail and the goody on my Spark page! I look forward to sharing this journey with you.

This world is but a canvas to our imagination.

Greetings! I'm Susan and I currently live in Sterling, work in Hutchinson and hang out with a bunch of awesome women (Wichita Chorus of Sweet Adelines) in Wichita on Monday nights! I lived in Topeka and Kansas City for the past 15 years or so and REALLY miss the city! When I get my feet back on the ground, I'm hoping to be able to move to Hutchinson or Wichita. (Preferably Wichita) I will be spending more time there in the next few months at Wichita Wings indoor soccer games!

I've been a member of Spark People for several years, but now have to get VERY serious about my weight loss, since Pre-Diabetes diagnosis yesterday.

Have a great day, everyone!

I can do this, with God's help!!!

With God, ALL things are possible!!

Now all glory to GOD, who is able, through HIS might power at work within us, to accomplish INFINITELY more than we might ask or think!
-- Ephesians 3:20

Hi Everyone!

I just joined this team although I have been a member on SP for several years. I was born and raised in New York but in 2000 I moved out here to Oklahoma. I actually live in Ponca City, OK but when I go to do some serious shopping or any thing important I try to go to Wichita, it's actually closer that going out to OKC or Tulsa. I really like it up there, I always have to stop at Dillons out on Douglas, love that store and everything is so convenient. I love Oldtown too there's so much more to do up there. Maybe sometime I'll see one of you fine folks on my journeys...who knows

Hi! I started sparkpeople about a week ago and I am so happy I did. So far, so good. I started walking everyday almost a month ago to help deal with a spike in my anxiety after the holidays. I could not believe how good it made me feel! I'm now up to walking 2 miles twice a day, and the nutrition tracker has really been a life saver!

My doctor's PA told me about this website. I have to say I am very impressed with what I've seen so far.

Years ago after having 3 children I lost all of the excess weight I had gained during the pregnancies and was able to keep fit for about 5 years. Then when I turned 40, 100 extra pounds came on like what seemed overnight and I have been fighting to get the excess weight off for nearly 8 years now. I'm looking to lose 80 pounds and welcome any/all of the support I can get. Happy New Year!!!

Hello Wichita SP emoticon


I'm also new to both SP & Wichita, and I'm looking forward to MOVING FORWARD, losing weight & getting fit!

One of my goals for the week is to visit the Wesleyan fitness center (I think it's called Health something) and the YMCA, to decide if I want to join one... I think I need the structure to get my fitness routine in gear. Any thoughts or experiences shared would be appreciated!

This then is life: how curious! How real! Underfoot the divine soil, overhead the sun. W.Whitman

A co-worker told me about the website and I decided to join today. I love the ideas of challenges. Im working on starting a better/healthier routine along with losing weight. I have already been working on going to bed at the same time every evening and waking up at the same time. I liked some of the articles on this challenge and hope seeing other people doing it will help me as well :)

Hello! I'm actually in Hutch, but just moved here from Wichita a few months ago. I've been on SP since February, so I'm not new to that, but new to the Wichita Team. Just thought I'd say hey!

Howdy, Wichita Sparkers! I am just trying to get a handle on my eating. I eat healthy but TOO much, and too many late night Braum's frozen yogurt cones. So no Braum's for awhile. Plus I am trying to track my exercise and reward myself for the extra effort - saddlebags look better on horses, not women!
I hope to use the tools of sparkpeople, but don't have much time for anything but the tracking and occasional browsing.
Best wishes to everyone and their achievements!

Also, a reply to the person who has joint problems, etc. I have a knee problem that keeps me from my favorite exercise - zumba and dancing. When I lose some weight it will get better and I hope to be wiggling and jiggling again! Keep at it!

I'm glad you're trying to get back and active on SP! When you have any medical complications, it is best to have your physician oversee your fitness program. They know your history,medications, etc.

That being said, some aren't "experts" in that area. If your physician has oked exercise in general-why don't you try a few sessions with a personal trainer. They would be really helpful in getting you off in the right direction for you!

As for the cramping in the water--it has happened to me during water classes before. Some good suggestions are to alert the instruction prior to the start that you have cramped in the water before--and stay shallow and/or near the edge.

I wish you well in your Spark journey!

Hello!
I joined spark a few months back but haven't really kept up with it. I really need help....I need to learn to keep on track and take care of myself. I went to the doctor today and he was very frank with me, with my joints and injuries the way they are I am more than likely going to end up in a wheel chair. I want to prove him wrong. Exercise for me is very difficult, swimming is even difficult as it causes me charlie horses, don't want that in a pool......hate to drown while trying to get healthy. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I have bad ankles,one is bone on bone, bad knees and severe scoliosis, and hips that are at an angle. Thanks for info you can give me on exercise. emoticon

There is so much to take in on SP WHERE TO START? I have been eating a lot of fish and chicken this pass month also riding my indoor bike, so far I've lost 10 pounds but it is very hard when you are doing it by yourself. I know I must walk this road one day at a time. So I'm going to try SP and see if this works for me . My mother was my sister and best friend and when she passed in 1996 I think I just stop living. Also I find it hard cooking for 2. Thanks everyone HAPPY EASTER

It's great to know that quite a few people do this in Wichita. It will help me get into looking into local outdoor events. I plan on going to Mexico with my husband in June and cannot seem to get rid of this tummy of mine. Hope to learn more about this site! :)
