Hello from northeast Alabama. I was recently asked to be a Team Leader on God's Amazing Grace. It's a well-established team and I'm enjoying being a team leader on it. I also took over the team Chronic Kidney Disease - CKD which has been inactive for several years. I post almost daily on it and add info concerning kidney disease yet I still haven't been able to get anyone involved yet. I've gone back through the members' list and discovered most members are not active on Spark People anymore. Many others are still here but have not been active for quite some time. The others I have invited back and told them it has been updated but so far no luck. I'm not sure what else I can do. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'm almost 65 and live on a small farm with my chickens, horses, and dogs. My daughter lives next door. She has 1 daughter and 1 granddaughter. I also have a daughter-of-the-heart and she has 2 sons. So I have 2 daughters, 3 grandchildren, and 1 great-granddaughter.



One day at a time.

Hi, my name is Miller. I'm 66, married for 44 yrs to Randy. We have an adult daughter who lives with us. We're retired and she works in a veterinary hospital. I live in the US, in North Carolina. I'm a long-time member of SparkPeople, but have only become a leader in the past year. Reading is my main hobby, though I also play piano and write poetry occasionally. I've had a knee replacement and hip replacement in the past couple of years and will probably need another replacement in the future. I walk when I can and also do chair exercise videos and physical therapy.

I glad to be a member of the team! emoticon

Hi! My name is Adrienne I live in Sunnyvale, CA and I just took over the Sunnyvale team. I have two sons, three grandsons and one granddaughter. I’m also the leader of a lot of other teams too. Many years ago I lost 50 pounds and I used SparkPeople to do it. I have kept them off all these years too. I belong to a fitness club called Orange Theory and go there every Monday and Wednesday morning and I belong to a hiking group and hike every Friday. Today is my 46th wedding anniversary and I’m 67 years old. Tonite we are going to our favorite Greek restaurant to celebrate. I love SparkPeople and I believe that they are helping keep my weight down

Hello I am Amy, I joined Spark last year and really love I here. I have 2 sons 27 & 30. My oldest is living with a roommate and my youngest is living here for a few more months. I have 4 cats here 1 is mine and 3 are my oldest sons. When he had to move from where he was living he couldn't find a place that would allow 3 cats and he didn't want them broken up so they are living here :) My oldest son and I hope to move into a house in the March/April timeframe.

Hi Folks,

Not sure I ever introduced myself so here goes.

I am about to reach my 2nd anniversary on Spark. I am one of the leaders on the Emerald Gems and try to give the team encouragement, welcome new folks and give some educational info from time to time.

I live in Charlotte, NC, am married with 2 adult children. I'm semi-retired as hubby sold his practice but is still working part time (sometimes it feels like full time). I do swimming as my primary exercise which really helps the back issues.

I am a goldsmith and enjoy photography (see my photo tab on my sparkpage for some of my pics)

I stop in here but not as a weekly visit as I am pretty involved in my Gem team.

Look forward to being a more regular participant here.

Hello! I have been on SparkPeople for just over a year, now, and just became co-leader of one of my most favorite teams, the Dog Motivators. Dog Motivators is a sweet little group that really speaks to my crazy-about-canines soul! My dogs really do motivate me to get out for at least a walkie every day! I will be working with the wonderful original group leader to rekindle the spark for Dog Motivators. Thanks up front for the info and support that you may give!

I'm the new team leader of spark Oklahoma City. There are many members still logging points but very few posts. I am looking for ways to revitalize our team to help others in my area. Any advice and new friends would be welcome. I think this is going to be particularly challenging because I don't even know when to reply or create a new post! So, hi Liz! I feel your pain!

Right now Sjogren's is the top candidate for me. I had punctal plugs put in my eyes in January which has helped quite a bit with the dry eye. On meds for the dry mouth. Along with some products that my dentist recommended there. I had 3 surgeries in 3 months this year. This is the first month that I haven't had a doctor appointment of some type in over a year. It is my big goal Doctor Free August LOL

Welcome Barb! I have auto-immune issues (possible Sjogren's and/or RA), so I totally understand having to be careful. I flare so easily.

We're glad to have you on the team! We're here for you!

There are many Connective tissue diseases (Lupus, Sjogrens, Scleroderma, etc.). However there is no one test for any of them. Instead there is a list of criteria usual 7-9 items and you usually need to have 4-5 of them to be classified as having a particular disease. I have a few from one list and a few from another, etc. (some of the criteria are on multiple lists!) Since they can't say which disease(s) I have I am considered undifferentiated (or unclassified). It is even possible to have more than one of them and then they consider to be Mixed Connective Tissue Disease (MCTD).

My name is Barb. I am a wife (married for 33 years), Mother (3 grown children) and retired (due to disability) Postmaster. In 2012, I finally broke down and went to the doctor after months of not feeling well. I had put it off as stress and getting older but things were getting worse fast and I knew at a certain point it was not either (or both) of those. By September I was short of breath just sitting in chair. I had to focus on how to walk and climbing stairs (we live in a 2 story house) was a nightmare. I was also experiencing chest pain. I finally got a diagnosis in March 2013 after numerous tests and specialists. I had to go to a University hospital in another state to get answers. I have UCTD (Undifferntiated Connective Tissue Disease). It took another 6 months for the meds to have much affect. Needless to say I gained weight with all that inactivity. I still can't do much more than a steady (not brisk) walk but I am hoping I can at least stop the weight gain and maybe lose a few pounds. I have to be careful because if I overdo one day I pay for it for several days.

In the last few months I have become a leader (coleader) of 2 groups (Walk It Out and WiiFit).

I just realized I never introduced myself when I joined the team. Oops! Better late than never. =)

I go by GRBLMES on SparkPeople because my husband is in a high profile profession and is concerned about our online identities. Sorry if it seems impersonal, but I understand his concerns and have chosen to support him. =) On a more personal level, I am 31 and have been on my healthier lifestyle journey since June of 2016. I have two children, a small hobby farm, and try to spend as much time outdoors as possible. I am bipolar, and while my diagnosis does not define me, but also worth mentioning so you understand why I may stop communicating during a hard depressive phase or may seem like I put too much time into SparkPeople during a manic phase. I do freelance work for local businesses, substitute teach, and do odd jobs for a living. It isn't great financially, but gives me time to be a mom and explore my interests.

The team I created is Warrior Goddess Book Club. It was inspired by a discussion about the book Warrior Goddess Training in another team, in which members wanted to do some sort of book club with it - see a need, fill a need, right? In all honesty, it is a bit intimidating because I have only been Sparking a few months, but I love the site and thought I would dive right in. LOL. Since it is a new team, we will start our first discussion on September 6th. It should be great!!

Hellooooo Out There....

Crickets in this forum. Have there been no new members since the last post in Sept 15? Anyway for others who might be checking the thread...
My name is Mary Ann, from NH. I've been a sparker for many years and have lost and gained, but never back to the top weight of 156. At 60 yrs old, my weight is pretty steady at 141, and have been religious in tracking lately, which lo and behold, works!!!!! Amazing.

I have two sons, both grown and out of the house, living independently and I'm so proud of the men they have become.
Five years ago I recieved my yoga instructor certification - for fun, really - but now teach where I work as a wellness activity and have 30 !! people routinely attend. Gosh, I'm blessed, so blessed.

Have a peaceful, joyous day, everyone.

Mary Ann, living in DC with home in NH.

Each day renew with a grateful heart.

Hi, My name is Carla. My highest weight was 256 in 2011. I lost 10 pounds after finding out I was a diabetic and joined Spark people in August 2011 for the educational tools. Since then I've lost 30 additional pounds. I'm the leader of the "Yes, You Can" SP Class of August 7-13, 2011 Team. I'm looking forward to learning more through your experiences and fellowshipping with the team!

Thanks, in advance for your support.

Hey all, I am also 56, and been hovering at my same weight now for a few years!

I have been a team leader in the past, and just accepted a co-leader, I remember there was a team, that was 4 weeks long, and would show you how to get the most out of ypur team? But I can not find it anywhere?

Can someone help? Thanx, guess I must have deleted myself from the group but kept this one! Thanx,
you can call me Barbara or May

Please call me May! For Spark

HI my name is Joyce I live on the coast of Oregon in Florence. I found this site from the leaders business sight. I am 72, married to a great guy, have 3 adult children, 12 grandchildren and 3 1/2 great grandchildren. Mine goals are to be on a healthy life style, exercise more, eat better so I can enjoy my retirement years. I am a co Leader on the team Beauty comes in all shapes and sizes and belong to about 6 other teams. From each I learn something new and all are very encouraging. Although, the past couple of weeks I have been less motivated haven't figured out why yet. Have a wonderful weekend.

Hi, I am Michelle in Southern Oregon. I ran across the spark team nutria-bullet and got excited. At that time I didn't realize that it didn't have a leader. So here I am trying to revamp it and get others interested in using theirs for their weight loss journey or even their blender. I am not sure how to do this as I have never lead anything like this before but I am hoping it gets me closer to my goals and keeps me accountable.

Howdy! My name is Amanda and I am from Houston, TX. I created a team in the last week and I am wondering how the rest of you have built your teams. How did you spread the word? How long did it take you to get a decent (yes this is relative) following?

I am very excited to learn from you all and help the Spark community! emoticon

Hi my name is Lisa and I have been a member of SP since 2011. At first I was so on the right track and like some many others, I feel off track. I'm back and I'm determined to get back on track and give it a 100% effort.

I have recently accepted the responsibility of being the co-leader of the St. Louis Spark team and like some others have said, I'm trying to find ways to bring life to our team.

I look forward to give and receiving support.

Funny you should mention this. I have noticed that members really like games. I know the games are a way to get people to post. and then they slowly start making comments because they keep coming back to the team.

One idea I saw today was a scavenger hunt. They had a list of things people had to take a picture of and post. Things they can't necessarily find at home would be great too. so they get out and about more.

Just a thought! Good luck!!!!

I have been with SP for awhile now. I became a Co-leader for the Pueblo Sparkers because one of the leaders resigned. This team only has a couple of members that actually participate. I don't know what to do to get the rest of them motivated. I am open to all suggestions.

Hi,

My name is Callie and I have 50+ lbs to lose. I am off to a great start with SP.

I am the leader of two teams: Healthy Moms at Home and Christian SAHMs.

I changed the name of the Healthy Moms at Home because it was formerly called "Mommies at Home" and I wanted the team have a stronger name and I created a new image for it. I updated the forums and I have emailed the team with daily exercise ideas and I have asked for input and created a thread for that. I created a new welcome message for new teams members who join.

I don't know if it is a dead team. I have gotten no feedback via email, team threads, nobody even huddles. It has been a few days. How long do I give this team? Does SP delete teams? There are at least two other teams for stay at home moms and dads. There are 171 members...

The other one is Christian SAHMs(another stay at home mom team, and I believe there are other teams with this name too or very similar)...which is another possibly dead team.
I did similar things for the Christian SAHMs; except since it is Christian, then I could gear it towards daily verses and such. I got a huddle today;-) So there is someone there;-) It is a bigger team with 362 members

I am wondering if it is a problem of duplicated teams. There are too many stay at home mom teams......

Thanks for listening;-)

My name is Marion and I am looking forward to being a member of this team.

I have been on Spark for many years and a leader of several teams. From time to time I take a break from Spark but always come back because I miss it.

My first team as a leader was Healthy Hearts which now has 125,000+ members. When I joined they had no team leader so I went for it. When I left we had 5 leaders.

I am currently leader of The Young & The Restless which is a fun team and I am totally enjoying it. When you have great members like we do it makes it easy !!

Hello! I'm Judy and recently became a co-leader with Weekly Challenges. I've been with SP for 1 1/2 years now and have come a long way! I'm a diabetic that has been able to get off my BS meds within approximately 6 months of joining SP and have brought all my blood levels to well within normal limits and that includes my Cholesterol and Triglyceride levels. Not only am I pleased but my doctor is totally astounded about how well I've done. He's even pleased with my slow weight loss knowing that I'll have a much better chance of keeping that weight off. My inches have dropped tremendously and one thing nice about that is that I get to change my ward robe often; on the other hand, it's also getting to be rather expensive!!

I stop in to the Diabetes Team and check out for newcomers or someone who is having doubts of ever getting off their meds, losing their weight etc and take that opportunity to share with them my success with SP and diabetes etc. I figure that if my testimony can help just one person then everything I've gone through to get to this point as been worth it not only to me but for that one person as well.

I try to welcome all people in different Teams with SP so they don't feel like they are a fish out of water, or joining in a strange group or world whichever it might seem like. I've been in their position and no how it feels, especially when no one else seems to care enough to respond to me/them. I always try to assure them that they are not in this journey alone and that they ARE WORTH IT!!!.

Thanks, Pam, for asking me to help you as one of your co-leaders.

I'm Kara, and I recently took over leadership of the 20 Somethings Group Team. Do you guys have any advice in rebuilding a team? (It used to be pretty active, but now has been quiet for a while) :) I love people and I believe that we can achieve anything we set out to accomplish by being consistent and flexible.

Stay Excellent :)
