2. Is this where you are from? Yep, born, raised, and no desire to leave

3. Married, single, etc. Engaged :)

4. Kids ? (have any) Nope

5. Animals ? (have any) My family has dogs, I've emotionally adopted my fiance's parents cats. We hope to be able to get our own kitties soon!

6. Hobbies, interests: Knitting, crocheting, and "going green." I also really enjoy reading and writing, but I don't have time for that anymore.

7. How long a member of spark? 4 Days. Not long, still getting the hang of everything.

8. How many are you cooking for? None right now, but soon it will be two. Neither of us know how to cook healthy for ourselves, let alone two people with different needs, so I'm doing all the research and preparation I can.

9. How can the team help in supporting and aiding you in meeting your goals? I always am looking for healthy and delicious recipes! We love flavor!

10. Anything else you want us to know about you? I'm trying really hard to eliminate processed foods from my diet. Also, my weakness since I was a child is Annie's Mac and Cheese. I can eat a whole box without trying. I tell myself it's okay because it is organic and I know what all the (very few) ingredients are.

HI, I am new to this team but not new to Spark. I have been on Spark over two years now, and have lost 60 pounds. I don't know where I would be without Spark these days! Anyway, I am cooking for two most days and thought this would be a good place for some new cooking ideas.
I am a native Floridian and live in Gainesvillle, Florida! Hi to all, and much success to each of you!

What a great way to introduce yourself, and learn about your team members!

1. Location (State): Idaho
2. Is this where you are from?: Kind of. I'm an Army brat, born in Oklahoma, spent a lot of time in Virginia but the parents were from Idaho so this is where we moved to when Dad retired (after 25 years).

9. How can the team help in supporting and aiding you in meeting your goals?: Meal plans! I get tired of eating the same thing week after week because I can't think of anything else to make, especially with chicken.
10. Anything else you want us to know about you?: I prefer strength training to cardio, am an Independent Miche Representative, and use the Square Foot Garden method to garden,

Hi everyone,

I'm Suzana. I'm back at SparkPeople again and giving it another try (with an earnest effort).

2. Is this where you are from? No, I grew up in the SF Bay Area

5. Animals: See above. I consider my parents' dog my own. :)
6. Hobbies, interests: Movies, music, the outdoors

9. How can the team help in supporting and aiding you in meeting your goals: I kind of just need some motivation. I tend to let stuff slide when I'm the only one who knows what I'm doing.
