Hi I live in Smyrna. I am new to Spark people joined 2 days ago. Found this team from my friend Cindy(purplegold84)

My CPAP machine is working. Blood sugar and blood pressure are coming down. I have more energy so I can now exercise more. Sleep is important to all aspects of health.

At least you are returning back to the nest to do something about it. At present I live in Dayton, Tn and plan to move to Seiverville which is closer to you in the next 6 mos. Just remember we are here to encourage you to reach your goal again. Jeannette emoticon

Hi, I live outside of Oakland near Macon. I am also having a very hard time getting motivated to exercise. I am happy to hear from someone else in Fayette county. I hope we are able to inspire each other. emoticon

I joined a week ago and have been overwhelmed with all of the support that has been shown by SparkPeople members. I live in Hickory Withe area outside of Memphis. Exercise has always been a challenge for me. Any motivational advice would be greatly appreciated. emoticon

I visited other areas and know that there is great hospitality here. I think the problem is in Rhea County....the politics here does not like outsiders. But hopefully we will be moving to Seiverville shortly. Jeannette

Hi, I am presently living in Dayton, Tn and just recently moved here from New Orleans about one year ago. Must admit that the reception here has not been favorable. We are viewed as outsiders I guess. Eventually, we are hoping to move around Pigeon Forge. Jeannette

Hello everyone! I was reading the posts here. At the top of the posts, most people were from like middle and east Tennessee. :-( I was thinking....Am I the only overweight one in West Tennessee??? Then I seen some from Alamo, Jackson, around Natches Trace Park. I was like ohhhh ok...Just had to have patience and read more. lol

I am from a small town. Dyer to be exact. It's about 30 miles north of Jackson, and 30 miles south of Union City.

I am origonally from California. Moved here when I was 16. I hated it here at first. Probably for the first year. I was use to the faster pace of life. Then after about a year, I started loving it here. I would NEVER move back to CA.

I moved here over a year ago from Greencastle,IN yeah and now live in Sunbright, TN {east TN}. I am trying hard to get a great body for me. I plan to get married sometime in the next year or 2 and want to look great. I have enlisted my kids too. I have 1 son of my own and 3 soon to be step kids. My oldest step son wants to play football in the fall and my step daughter wants to cheer next winter and spring. So were shaping up toning up and droping lbs.

Hi, I am from Pulaski, Giles County. have a small farm with lots of pets. I wasn't born in the south, but i got here as quick as i could!
I have 40 pounds to lose. I am enjoying getting up every day and riding my bike or walking about 6 miles a day.
also, I am a quilter, so always looking for a good bee!

Don't complain about the results you didn't get for the fitness you didn't do!

I moved here from IN 5 years ago. I love it here! I have read the book. I got quite a bit out of it, but the one thing that stands out the most is: Start exercising every day, even if for just 10 mins, then keep the streak going. It is all about how many days in a row you can do it.

Hi, I am not from TN but I recently moved here from IN. I now live in Cordova, TN. I am really enjoying SparkPeople. I want to loose 15 more pounds and I am certain that with the help of SparkPeople I can finally do it and keep it off. Can someone tell me about the Spark Book. Was it a really good read? What is the most important thing you got from the book?
