Hi! My name is Cassie. I grew up in SW Washington 12 years in Cowlitz County and 6 years in Skamania County. I moved to Colorado after high school, but missed the ocean and the rain. Now I live on Whidbey Island and work in Anacortes. I just re-joined SP a few days ago so my goals are very small to just get some habits in place. This week I am working on drinking 8 glasses of water and exercising 3 days a week.

Cali,
I was born and raised in Seattle. I did move away for a couple of years but missed our beautiful scenery. We can always go visit other places but so glad you like Washington State. Welcome to the team.

I'm Cali and moved to Aberdeen in 2018 from Salt Lake City, Utah. Love the scenery, the people and glad that I don't have to deal with over 100 degree weather anymore.

Hi Debbie,
I know what you mean about "missed all the green". I moved away and lived in California and Alaska. When I moved back on 1976 I decided to could visit other places. Let's hope we can travel in 2021 safely.

Welcome!
Karen

Hi I'm Debby. Live in Port Angeles now. Left Port Townsend where my kids went to school and graduated to live in Lake Havasu AZ. Missed my kids and when I returned I ended up in P.A. Looking at the beauty here and comparing to our rock yards in AZ, you can say I really missed green!! Been back 6 years already.

Hello, LaughCrinkle here... I shortened to _Crinkle because it felt like a long handle, I prefer to have a short handle... anyway!

I'm in Bellevue WA and stumbled into this team using the Premium tools; it is nice to not have adds and to feel like I'm giving something back to SparkPeople after all it has enabled me to do over the years.

So how about this weather, enh?

Hi everyone! My name is Candace, I'm 27, and I work / live in the Silverdale area, though I like to try out other places for hiking and day trip fun. I'm an ultrasound tech and one of my inspirations for getting healthy is being in that work atmosphere. It really provides examples of how you need to nourish and take care of your body for the long run. Some of my short term goals include hitting the Y at least 3 times a week, outdoor walk or hike on the weekends, healthy eating, and more WATER!

So far I have been feeling great since changing up my habits, and I look forward to meeting like-minded folks, hopefully in my area!

Hi hi Anne!

I went to school in Cheney a long, long time ago. I remember getting drunk and telling my friend that she was "pretty Joanne from the city of Spokane."

Silly memory. I don't do that so much anymore.

We are looking for someone to organize an Eastern Washington WA Team meet-up, if you or anyone is interested! Can't promise I'll come but I'll try.

Maybe Ellensburg as a nice halfway point? Or George? :D

Hi Everybody,
My name is Crystal and I'm from Redmond. I am an Instructional Assistant for my local elementary school where my children attend. I have an older daughter and a younger son and a beautiful 10-year old goldendoodle. I have an awesome husband who has tracked right alongside me. I have struggled to maintain a healthy weight more than half of my life. I'd lose 30lbs only to gain it back and then some. It wasn't until I moved to Washington state that I was seriously switched on to the idea of losing the weight for good. Having my daughter was a pivotal moment when I first began to think outside of myself and that pressure of having someone looking up to me really got me feeling like I needed to lead by example. It's been an up and down journey to a healthy weight (one that still fluctuates to this day). But, I no longer allow myself to feel defeated and allow myself to berate myself for not having enough self control. I'm now minus 65lbs. I lost it slowly, about 0.5lbs a week on average. There was about a year gone by where I was working so hard but the scale wouldn't budge...then all of a sudden I began to see the number on the scale dropping. I've been at my goal weight for five years now. The main takeaways I live by is "Persistence over perfection." If you have a flat tire you don't decide you might as well pop the other three since one is flat. Or if you trip down one step, you don't throw yourself down the rest of the flight since you tripped on only one step. It really keeps things in perspective when I have slip ups and it's so normal to have setbacks. It's how you pick yourself back up after a slip up what really counts.

Hello Anne and PENONE! Welcome!

Anne, that is fantastic that you joined the Washington Trails Association. They're a great organization and I love that you are helping to preserve nature and places for all of us to explore. Thank you!
I was born in AZ but have lived on the west coast for most of my life. Hope you like it here!

PENONE:

I don't live in Elma but I bet it's beautiful. And you can get out to the water without too much trouble? I am also a pluviophile (lover of rain).

Keep reaching out and thanks for connecting with the team.

Hi everyone!
I'm in the Kirkland area, we moved here last year from Arizona. I'm a long time Sparker (though often infrequent) and now that I've found my footing I want to re-dedicate to my health.

Short term goals- I want to get outside more (doesn't everyone?) but since everyone I know are indoors people I'd be hiking/camping on my own and I'm a tad intimidated. I didn't have problems doing that in AZ but I'd been there for 15 years, lol. I signed up to help the Washington Trails Association fix some hiking trails to get my feet wet and I'd like to not be gasping too terribly on those trips.

Hey, Shrinks. It's so, so true. Everytime I think I don't need to check in with SP I slip and slide. Glad you're back.

I love shopping in La Conner as well, TFRANCO. Especially that bookstore and the olive shop. Though the last time I was there, the olive shop had combined with a kitchen store. Still gave yummy samples, though.

Hi all,

I'm returning to SP after a few years away, realizing being active on here really did make a difference. I'm from Eastern WA. My family loves to camp. Our current faves are along the Little Naches and American Rivers. One of my biggest motivators is to be able to take on longer hikes, maybe even comfortably.

Good morning! My name is Kari and I live in Skagit County! Currently Mount Vernon, but hopefully we will be closer to Clear Lake soon. I grew up in Lynnwood (Brier really), spent 10 years in Spokane, and a short summer in Tri Cities. My job brought me to Skagit County, but then a few years later I quit, but stayed here. I have 4 kids (two are step) and 4 dogs. Iím a Realtor and for fun an Uber driver. My husband and I enjoy golfing, camping and karaoke. :)

We get up at 3 to go to the gym, but I havenít been in over a month. I got the creeping crud which went bronchial, and coughed so bad I fractured a rib. So until thatís healed, Iím just doing wall sits, a bit of yoga and stretching. We eat mainly a Paleo style diet, but I love my sweets. Cake especially. Happy to be here!

Hi my name is Tiffany. I live in the beautiful little town of La Conner. I am new to spark. I have been looking for a way to keep myself of track. I never know where to start when it comes to getting fit and healthy. Do I look up work outs? Do I start making healthy meals? How do I ease into it? Well I guess I'm going to jump right on into everything starting with joining this site.

So a little about myself. I am a stay at home mom of 4. 3 boys and a girl. 1 Teenager, 1 five year old, and 2 toddlers. Keeping up with them is getting really hard and just getting harder as the days go by. I have noticed myself getting heavier and since I turned 30 have even had some new medical issues I've never encountered before that have scared me into living a more healthy life. Not to mention I've been feeling less attractive and find myself not taking care of my physical appearance. I try to wear clothes that used to fit a couple months ago but now are too tight and I have resorted to wearing my leggings or bicycle shorts with a tank top or t-shirt.

I have Hypothyroidism working against me every step of the way as well. Slower metabolism doesn't help and remembering to take the 1 pill everyday isn't as easy as you might think. The smallest distraction throws me off course. The one thing I hate most about having Hypothyroidism is that its hard as all get out to lose the weight but gaining it is easier than ever. You know those jokes about gaining weight like, " I could smell chocolate cake and I gain 20lbs". That is real life for me. When I lose weight its one step forward, gaining weight is 100 steps back. I've actually thought about taking more medication that is required and tricking my body into thinking I am Hyper- but never had the cojones to do it. Plus I don't want to mess things up with my doctor.

I just want to get back to what I once was and now's the time!

Hi, My name is Shawna. I have been on and off of Sparkpeople for years. I am originally from Pierce County (Tacoma, Puyallup, Gig Harbor), but my family is settled in Kelso now. I have about 70 pounds I would like to lose - starting with losing 55 first and seeing how that feels. I am hoping that my getting healthy will motivate my husband to do so too. I am implementing an anti-inflammatory diet in our home. My husband has arthritis in his back and my daughter struggles with all over pain (not fibro). I have been slowly changing our dinners and what is available during the day, but today's the day. And I am rambling...

Anyhow, I would love to see if there is anyone near me that would like to buddy up for accountability and encouragement. Here's to a healthy new life for us all!

The body achieves what the mind believes.

Hi Everyone,

I am starting over, was doing well and then had several curveballs thrown my way. The first was the school shooting at MPHS, which greatly affected my son and a month later my husband was diagnosed with cancer. With all the running around I was doing between doctors appts for hubby and trying to keep my son on track for graduation and he therapy appts. I sort of lost myself.

Now that hubby is stable and my son is graduated, I am back to focusing on myself and losing all weight I need to do.

Welcome, welcome!

I'm going to try and share this "buddy search" link from Spark and see if it works:

www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_search_re
su
lts.asp


From the "Community Home" page I scrolled down to Spark Pages/explore more Spark Pages (blue tab.)

Then there's a "SparkPage Search/Buddy Finder" - enter a few letters into that and it will take you to the above page, which gives you a "revise search criteria" where you can (finally) search by location. Phew!

Hope it works, and please let people know about our lovely WA State Team.

Hi. I have been learning to navigate the SparkPeople apps for a few months now. I don't know anyone else in my area that uses Spark. My primary care physician in Wenatchee was the one who introduced me to SparkPeople. I would love to find fellow Sparkers who live in Kittitas County.

Back after an 8 year absence, just cause. Setting 2017 goals, hope to take them past March. I'm in Fed Way, grew up in Richland, Love this state, some parts little better than others, lol. Can see Rainier most anyday it's not cloudy, which right now isn't that often.

Hello, I'm Louise, from Olympia. I retired last winter and keep busy with traveling, sewing, and reading. I am very involved in my TOPS chapter (Take Off Pounds Sensibly) and have lost 80 pounds in the last few years, but need to lose some more weight. My goal is to be healthy and be able to walk without pain.

Greetings all! I am from Washington. I joined the military, traveled all around the world, then came home to the beautiful PNW to retire. I have been retired since 2012. I live in Olympia. I recently joined Spark. I am so new that I am still figuring out the site. I just found this forum and am excited to find local friends. Anyone near Olympia?

Hey! I'm Robin. I live in the Shelton area, work in Olympia. I am Western Washington born and bred (meaning I couldn't tolerate the weather anywhere else, lol) but have lived here in Shelton for five years now. The more time I spend in this area, the more I love it. Central to everything I could want. A friend started a Spark group for our church and I figured, what the heck. It was a new year and I'm getting married this summer and suddenly had a little more urgent motivation to tone up certain areas. Pretty steady weight loss so far and I'm feeling better about it all. I'm an introvert who works twelve hour night shifts, so I'm very much a DIY type person when it comes to diet and exercise plans. SparkPeople has been great for that. Just thought I'd search out a couple more groups and try to get a little chattier.

Hey Washington!

I'm at the top of the food chain -- err, I-5! Waving south at all y'all.

Loving the cloudy skies and mild weather this winter, though I know it's not a good sign for the planet in general.

My goal is to be kinder to this body, walk more, eat more healthfully and maybe lose a few pounds along the way.

Cheers!

Spokane Valley here. I've been logging food, eating mostly whole foods & exercising every day, down exactly 11# as of yesterday! I've tried to lose weight in the past, but this time feels different. I have never wanted to go to the gym every day - EVER! Now there are days I want to go a second time during the day.... who does that? Not me - not the OLD me! The new me - anything is possible!! Can't wait to get to know you all!

Hi Becky - what part of Tri Cities? My folks live in Richland. Whenever we are there we go walking in the desert - which is a pretty neat trail, and good exercise!

Even a tiny success is a good success. Never give up!

Hi. I'm Cassie. I just joined SP today. My family and I recently moved to Whidbey Island from Colorado. So far I am loving it. I grew up in the Longview/Kelso and Stevenson areas and I'm glad to be back in the Evergreen State!

My short term goals are to get at least 10 minutes of exercise every day and eat more fruits and veggies.

My name is Yvonne and I live in Spokane. I started a team for #12's and am hoping to get others to join. I've now lost almost 100 lbs and use a pool to get exercise. I've lived in Walla Walla, Kirkland, Auburn, Kelso/Longview, and was raised in Ione WA which is kinda on the Canadian, Idaho border. I'm glad to join this group and right now am concerned with all the smoke and fires.

Hi, I'm Cyndi. I'm in Longview. I was on SP many years ago, and just found my way back.

I've lost 120 lbs in just over 2 years, and I'm working on losing the last few pounds and toning my body. Dealing with the discouraging issue of loose skin as well.

Hi everyone,

I am currently living in Spokane. I moved here October 2014 from Eastern Kentucky.

My short term goals are to get a good fitness routine going and make some significant lifestyle changes relating to my diet. I am set to start a fitness program at my local gym, and I'm hoping that will jump start me and teach me the skills necessary to get to and maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle.

Being that I am new to the state and Spokane area, I would love to connect with others who live near me.

Hello, my name is Angela and I live in Goldendale Washington. I am a substitute teacher here. My husband Ed and I moved here this year. I am 50 years old. Ed and I were married last summer and we are planning a trip to Boston to attend his daughter's wedding in July. I want to drop two sizes by then. That is my short-term goal. Any help anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, My name is Mary and I'm really hoping that the community here can help me stay motivated. I'm struggling with Rheumatoid Arthritis, which is definitely a challenge for me in my weight loss journey, but I am more on track than I have been since my diagnosis, and I'm hoping I have found a plan that will let me meet those challenges head on! I look forward to getting to know you guys and cheer each other on!

Hi! My name is Wendy, and I live in Everett. Just stumbled upon Sparkpeople a week ago and love it! Zumba is my favorite indoor workout and when the weather is decent hiking this beautiful state is the best! I am a mom of five (two bonus children), a self employed hairstylist, and have many hobbies that I don't seem to have much time for! lol

Greetings Vicki Jo and Carol. Sorry I missed your post Vicki Jo. I'm usually good at spotting new posts, but somehow I missed yours. Welcome to both of you. I've been a Spark Team member for years myself, but have been very quiet on here the last couple years. I started Atkins diet with my 27 yo son October 1st. We've both lost 30 lbs eating that lifestyle. We both have a lot more to go. I'll be on here for chat and support almost daily. I live in western Washington on the Kitsap Peninsula. I'm a 911 dispatcher. Glad to meet you both.

Hi, my name is Carol and I've lived in Spokane all my life. I started my weight loss in 2006 when I also quit smoking. Since then I've lost a total of 120 lbs. I joined SP to stay healthy and maybe make new friends. I lost all my friends over the years between my lifestyle changes, work, etc. and I miss having people to talk to. I also suffer from Multiple Sclerosis which is why is't been so hard losing weight and has taken me many years. Slow and steady right? Thank you everyone and have an awesome day.

Hi my name is Vicki Jo. Im currently in college. I have a knee problem that has kept me from getting enough exercise. I am swimming now and working on strength. I have gained 35 lbs and my cholestrol has gone high. So my goal is to exercise daily, and will be working on going vegetarian. If anyone out there is vegan I can always use help since this is new. I look forward to your imputs. Have a great day. emoticon

My suggestion to you both would be to look into the low carb lifestyle. Myself, I'm doing Atkins. I've been doing it for 7 weeks now, have lost over 25 lbs, and I'm never hungry. It's a little tough getting through the Induction phase of the program, but after that, it's pretty smooth sailing. Lots of support for the low-carb lifestyle on Spark. Check it out and happy losing!
Bill.

Hello all! I'm Jen and I'm 27 from Bellingham. I was on SP about 8 months ago and was really making progress, then an aggressive work schedule, increase in travel, and an injury contributed to my demise. I'm back because I'm ready, no more excuses!!! I tend to approach things with an all-or-nothing mentality and find, every single time, that I'm setting myself up for failure. I echo what Des said below, I'm ready for a lifestyle change. I like working out and discovering what my body can do for me, so exercise is not usually my issue. I need to incorporate healthy options and work on planning ahead. Here we go!!!

When I moved here I was 183lbs and depressed and as of today I have officially lost 20lbs and my mood is much better!! My goal is to lose another 33lb (or more)

Hello WA team! My name is Glenda. I've been on and off Spark for a few years. I've learned a lot and made some good progress. I moved from Texas to Washington in August (YAY!!) and have officially gained back 11 pounds since we hit the road. I am hoping now to get back in the swing of healthy living (the beer & food here is great!). Just wanted to stop by and say emoticon

Hi, I'm Sherrie and am new to Spark People. We've been in WA since last year February, and my husband is building a house around us in Union. We're about thirty minutes from a gym in either direction, and I need major motivation to work out at home! I just started using the Lift App to build good habits, and it has Spark People New You Bootcamp videos as possible exercise routine! I'm going to try it!

Hi,

My name is Sherry and I live in Jefferson County. I have lived here for 2 years but originally born and raised on Whidbey Island. I am returning to SP after being gone for a long time. My life has changed for the good and I am ready to get healthy. I hope to meet up with some SP in this area that can help with encouragement in my journey. Have a great day and I will check in later.

Hi there! I've been living in Washington for a little over a year now; originally from Minnesota. We're a military family, so lots of moving around. So far loving it here. Very beautiful!

Hi everyone! I was born and raised in Washington state but have just returned after a 12 year visit to the Baltimore/DC area. Soooooo glad to be home and looking forward to repairing some of the physical damage that came from living on the East Coast (asthma, allergies, weight gain...)
