Hi Phil!

I noticed that as well! I also noticed that the leaders of this team aren't even from Cincinnati (from what I can tell). Not sure why that is, but you are right, this team needs to be more active! :)

I'm trying to get active on spark people forums, although not many here are. I've only been on here for about 2 months, so I'm just trying to drum up discussion a bit. Believe it or not, I have no friends on spark people. We are currently #3 on the city to city challenge, but not many newer posts.

Phil

Name is Jo. I live in Price Hill. I started sparking about a week ago and have lost a little over 2 pounds so far. I'm super excited to be getting healthy and the support I am finding here. :)

Hello... I'm Linda and I live on the western side of town - White Oak. Just getting started here and want Sparkpeople to be my new healthy addition to replace facebook. Too much stuff dragging me down there. I like the positivity and helpfulness here!

Hi,
I just logged into SparkPeople for the first time in years. Trying to start the new year off right! A couple years ago we had a Cincinnati SP team for the Cincinnati Mini Heart Walk. That was a cool way to meet some SP folks and walk for a great cause.

hi all. feels like ages since i've posted. time is an elusive creature.

i've had a terrific weekend and i'm so amazed. despite a couple of weeks of emotional turmoil and sadness things have worked out wonderfully for mom and i once i let go of the emotions for ppl that were keeping me down.

tonight i'm going to see one of my favorite DJs ever .. who has a fear of flying so doesn't do many gigs .. he's in columbus ... i'll be there while my mom drives up to Alliance to get my school roommate. then we'll all head down to Cinci to school. (so excited just can't hide it *hehe*)

They really need to get this team going again somehow. Considering it's the team for a major city, you'd think it would be booming with posts every day. I'm here if anyone reads this message.

some day i'll possibly laugh ... but remember the other day how i sprayed myself with the water hose at the kitchen sink? well it one-upped me today. yesterday there was a drip. i guess last night it turned into a solid stream... which i found today when i got home. i tried turning on the hot water to rinse off the lid to my leftovers ... the handle came off in my hand, went flying, GEYSER of HOT water for about 5+ minutes. i was soaked. the kitchen was flooded. the counter was an ocean. i threw everything off the counter and out from under the sink. the shut off valve didn't seem to work. thankfully a roommate came home and went to get maint at the office. they told her about the shut off valve and that maint man was an hour away. well.. i finally got the water shut off. roommate let me use her extra towels to clean up. maint guy couldn't get the parts off b/c they're plastic and old and someone put them on incorrectly... AND he the parts he had to replace the faucet isn't the right stuff and the soonest they can fix anything is Monday. so we are washing dishes in the bathroom sink. oh joy.

meanwhile... S'mores speech yesterday went really well. I went to see Thor 2 (it was FANTASTIC popcorn flick, but i couldn't afford popcorn). My knee was sore and finally today i figured out it's the bruise finally appearing from when I fell a few weeks ago.

Stopped for some drinks last night at O'Charley's. randomly met a cute dude... :)

so today - i knew i needed a hot shower and to do laundry ... but that ISN'T WHAT I HAD IN MIND

today decided no homework and laughed hysterically at the @midnight show

more drama this week than i care to ever recount but i did so in a blog yesterday or the day before ... time is lost to me

btw - i felt like i got quite a bit accomplished today ... went from not wanting to go back to theatre troupe at all ...to quite possibly directing one of the short acts

got great compliments about my Twister costume I wore today ... i have a 1 minute speech in class to earn professional points to help bump up my final grade in Effective Speaking class. trust me I'm used to weird looks but wearing an obvious costume on a non-costume day garners some strange ones!!

i thought this was #6 team .. but it looks like not many postings ... let's try to change that

i'm currently attending school in cincinnati / mason / loveland area .. i would love to meet some people around here .. or at least connect online with locals

i've been on SP since april 2012 but only really tried using/doing anything a little over a year ago. have lost 80 pounds mainly through nutrition and occasional exercise.

i wanted to ask since i'm new to Cinci as a whole ... is there recycling available?? it kills my soul a little each time i have to throw away a soda can or paper box or cottage cheese container. both my apt complex and my school said they've tried it in the past but it was a disaster. i'd be willing to walk my stuff somewhere but i am having trouble finding a location. any help? (my zip is 45249)

Hey, I'm not actually in Cincinnati, but in Georgetown, which is about 50 miles east of Cincy. I would love to make a group of friends in the SW Ohio area, that we could maybe meet up every now and then for walking, coffee, whatever!

Hi all! My name is Jessica. I live in Trenton and work in Blue Ash. I have had great success losing weight in the past couple of months but only through diet and it has come to the point where I am craving activity. I am having a hard time getting motivated to work out by myself so I figured maybe there were some group activities or something to get involved with through spark people. I can't wait to see what comes from this!!

Hi Anyone who is still around! I have been on Spark for a long time, but had taken a break for a while. I am not back and have been checking in almost every day to a few teams. I just checked out the Cincy team, but it is not very active! I would love to connect with others that are nearby, spark challenges, and in-person meet ups? I live in Loveland (eastside) but I work in Ross (near Colerain/Rumpke). I hope the "hear" and get to know those from around the area!

Hi, I'm Sandi. I'm a Westsider (Western Hills area) and a new member to SP and the Cinti Team. I would love to meet others in the area who would like to dog-walk, etc. I just recently joined Mercy Western Hills Healthplex (Queen City & Boudinot) and have been taking lots of their water classes (Hydrobike, Aqua Zumba, etc). In addition to the dog-walks, I would also love to meet anyone else who goes to the Healthplex.

My name is Erin and I live in Oakley and work on west side. I would love to see this group be a little more integrated. Even if people can't get together so much, to have someone local to support each other would be great!maybe when thereis community events, like the pig, we can make more effort to organize something.
Would love to get to know you all better!

I am active on SP. I live in Morrow and work in Mason. Always looking for partners in exercise, especially walking and biking on the Little Miami Bike Trail. Also I would like to recommend a great personal trainer in my area that runs several groups that I take advantage of: Kim Robinson of Friends Fitness Company, she is also at the Countryside Deerfield express, but it is what it says: I have so many friends that I have met through her and we exercise together. I recommend it for anyone in the Little Miami, Kings, Maineville, western Loveland area. Look her up, she has a website.

Hello!

I am not terribly active in this team in terms of daily posting or anything; but, I do check in regularly and am active on the site in general. Love a daily dose of SparkPeople!

It's nice of you to join the team leader group.

In terms of this team, I used to think it would be nice if we had some local meetings or group walks now and then...something like that. I know Eu has tried to organize such events in the past and we just never get a very good response so perhaps it is just not meant to be. I am guilty of not having made it to previous events myself; there always seems to be something conflicting.

I am organizing a group for the Flying Pig and perhaps I'll create a separate post to remind team members of that.

p.s. I grew up on the West side and now am just a little north (Colerain Twp.), but still technically on the West. :)

Hey Everyone! I know we have A LOT of members, but not many of you are active on this board very often, so I would like to see who IS active and what you are looking for from this group! I know I personally find it frustrating when I join a group for motivation/companionship and no one is active. So here I will start!

My name is Erin and I am a new team leader for this group. I am 28 and from the west side! I am looking for a group of people that are motivated and want to help motivate (or need motivation) and I think it would be awesome to make real friends through this, the changes we are persuing and the things we go through to get there are something to be commended but not everyone sees that and it's nice to have people that understand!
