Welcome Lori! I think you and I have a lot in common...except maybe the decade of music interest! lol I was born and raised on a farm equidistant from NB, PA, and Saskatoon. I went to a boarding school in PA for high school. I will be married 21 yrs this coming summer and although we really arent' on the same page, we've figured out how to get along and co-exist and it's really better than starting over! lol I had a shih-tsu (Shelby) who sadly passed away last spring at 11 yrs old. I don't think I could have another one right now. My husband also possesses a greener thumb than me, I manage to keep my herb garden going, that's about it. I quit smoking 21 yrs ago when I was pregnant with my last boy and refuse to get pregnant again (totally not possible anyway) just to quit smoking so...done. lol I also like to bake without doing dishes! Imagine that! and I also love cookbooks just to look through. I have a library of cookbooks I should really try to thin out...nah... I prefer more modern music. I actually listen to C95 and like most of the top 10 songs. When I walk I usually just use my ipod for the radio app. I can understand the social anxiety although I don't have it personally, I am a homebody, and have friends who I think identify with that.

Welcome to all the new people and hope to make you feel like hanging around with us!



-sparkfully,
Cherie

Hi! Iím Lori, born & raised in Prince Albert. Iíve lived for a while in Regina & Tweedsmuir (a tiny hamlet on highway 263...the old Scenic Route to Waskesiu), but somehow found my way back to P.A.

Iím a 43yr old Homemake (44yrs in August), married (19 years this summer) with 2 KIFs (Kids In Fur), Jasper (my 7yr old Havanese-Bichon) & Emma (my 4yr old Shih Tsu). I love to cook & bake...but not overly fond of doing the dishes (which is why we invested in a dishwasher Ďcause hubby isnít any more fond of dishwashing than I am). I collect cookbooks & read them for fun, a habit that I share with my brother & sister, something we inherited from our mom. My favourite recipes to prepare are good old fashioned ones from the 1930ís & 1940ís (Depression & Wartime Era).

Iíve tried my hand at gardening, but sadly I donít possess a green thumb, so I leave that to hubby (it seems like he can grow almost anything...Iím kinda jealous).

I quit smoking August 16, 2017 (the 27th anniversary from when I started) and now Iím working on getting my weight under control. My family has a history of diabetes & heart disease, so I want to address the risks now before it becomes my reality. (I had a wake up call when my doctor prescribed medication for both high blood pressure & cholesterol.)

I started 2018 with a promise to myself to become more active, eat healthier, & lose weight. Itís hard to change years of habit, but I figure that if I could quit smoking after nearly 30yrs, I could change my lifestyle for the better as well.

My hobbies, besides cooking, include reading, playing piano (though Iím not very accomplished) & camping. I enjoy nearly all genres of music, but am particularly partial to the music of the 1940ís, Electropop, & Steampunk. I love singing & dancing, but unfortunately I was born with a rhythm deficit & inability to carry a tune, so I only indulge when Iím alone at home.

I also suffer from social anxiety, so I rarely leave the house on my own (which probably contributed greatly to my weight issues).

Rule #4: NEVER GIVE UP!

Good morning from sunny ( well at least today) Arcola! I have used this site in the past with success, but let it slide and well you know the outcome of that, I have gained the weight back :0( so I am back working on myself again. I got divorced 4 years ago, but am now in a relationship and you know how that can go, you get comfortable, late night snacking in bed and a big weight gain! My boyfriend is supportive no matter what I look like, but I am not happy with where I am so it's time to get off my a** and do something about it!

I've been a member for a while but have been off the site for a while. I came back last month and now I'm trying to get more active in my teams. So hi!

My husband, J, and I live on 40 acres a bit outside of Langham. We have a son, R, who was born in March. We also have a cat and four guinea pigs.

I'm sort of trying to lose weight but mostly I'm interested in getting back to being regularly active.

Peace & Blessings!

I actually helped start this team WAY back when. I came up with the name, and was part of the admin team. It's nice to see it's still here. :) That was a LONG while ago now.

Anyway... glad to be back. Making some changes. Not with a goal of getting thin - I rather like being FLABulous. But looking for some endurance, strength, and resilience. That does mean losing SOME of the weight, but it's not the end goal for me.

Looking forward to getting to know some of you, and helping to encourage you on your journeys! Sending lots of white light and love out into the far ends of our Province tonight. :)

Hey Saskatchewan!!!

I'm Tracy, single mother of two boys, ages 10 and 8. I live in Saskatoon and I work at the Cancer Clinic here. I am recently separated, my choice to end it.

2013 is my year of healing and part of that has brought me here to SparkPeople. I am challenging myself to run my first 10K this year in the Bridge City Boogie in June. I tried training last year for it but fractured my ankle in the process. This year progress is going well and I'm very excited. I also am trying to lose a wee bit of weight with that goal, eating healthier, watching what I eat, and drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day. I have been going at it for one month now...small weight loss but apparently I must be toning and gaining muscle mass cause people are noticing the difference.

I've been a part of the Canadian group but only to set my goals...then today I found this group and I am excited to be a part of it.

Welcome Gloria and Alindal. My bad for not welcoming you sooner but I was away from the computer a fair amount over the holidays.

This group is pretty quiet, so I would suggest also joining some other groups as well. I would love to see this group become more of a support system for our local people.

I'm from Regina and have been a spark member for quite a while now, when you use everything available it is really an awesome site to help on your journeys!

Thanks for introducing yourselves!

I am excited to see there is a Team Saskatchewan. I am from Regina, Saskatchewan. I am a mother of 3 and I can't wait to see the results of my new healthier lifestyle. I restarted my Spark Journey on Oct 24th, 2012. I can't wait to hear from others. Please share your ideas, success stories and motivations. I hope to hear from others soon.
