I joined the SP Community Team - Business Only Spark Team some time back.
One of the Team Goals is to "Post in the Introduce Yourself forum on the Message Boards 3 times per week" and this is most important now because of all the New Years Resolutions that pertain to diets and dieting.
I have already made this a Team Goal on one of my teams to welcome someone new once every day and I would ask those reading my blog to do the same. January is probably the heaviest month for new members and we all know how "invisible" we can feel sometimes when overweight. The Goal is not to let anyone go unwelcomed!
But you can welcome new members even without joining the team.
Thank you, "says she," as she steps off the soapbox!
**I am now asking how new members join if we have no way to invite them into the team.
***edited again: I was correct in my original wording of this blog - here is what Spark_Coach_Jen had to say in the Community Team Posting:
To join the Community Team (and join this SparkTeam),you have to be a member of the site for at least 3 months. Then when you click on the green CT icon next to any CT members posts, you can join from there.
Hope that helps!
So, to the 2 people asking about it, perhaps neither of you has yet been a member for a full 3 months? Please, by all means, keep trying! We really need you!

My gift to me today was to totally enjoy tasting all the goodies! I decided not to track today and I ate so many "forbidden sweets" that I am totally stuffed!
So, I had to get my sparkpoints - I attempted to log my foods into the Nutrition Tracker and am sure I am woefully off, but probably pretty close.
I ate close to 2 days food, salt, carbs, fat - you name it, I ate it!
Do I have any regrets?
No! I don't have a single regret for over-indulging today. This was my Christmas present to myself and I not only ate like I enjoyed it, I enjoyed what I ate.
Could it have been worse? Oh my yes! But I was just too full to eat another bite, lol.
Will I weigh tomorrow?
Oh my yes! Because I need to see the number on the scale, no matter what it is.
I know my weight will be up tomorrow but I also know I didn't really gain a pound let alone the 2+ that the scale might show.
Now to flush out all the fat, sugar and salt I consumed during the remainder of this weekend. Fruits, veggies and lots of water. Can you say "soup"?
I only hope that everyone reading my blog also had a great Christmas and no regrets. It is one day a year, a day to celebrate my saviors birth and like it or not, we celebrate with food. It really doesn't matter what religion you follow; most religions celebrate with food and it never seems to be low-calorie foods.
Today I celebrated my life.
Tomorrow is another day and I return to my Spark Program.
**edit: 12/26 -
weighin 123.7 - still within 5 lb range from 120 but higher than I would prefer.
Already did the treadmill for 2 miles and had a sensible fruit-filled breakfast!
Did some ST already too, more to follow later today along with mega-veggies!
***edit: 12/27 -
weighin 122.0 - still doing my ST and eating my freggies!
12/28 122.1 - but still doing ST!! and eating my freggies and drinking my water!!
12/29 121.7 - coming down again! Still doing ST! No veggies today but 4 fruits
12/30 121.9 - still doing ST. Circumstances made leftovers the only choice for very late lunch - eating fresh fruits instead of veggies this week. Got to use them up!
12/31 122.0 - ending the year up a bit but doing so much more ST that I don't care! See y'all next year!!

So I checked out a new team yesterday and after perusing the "quickfire" exercises, I decided I can do this! But I can do this without needing to add another team.
I did find a new easy-to-do exercise www.fitsugar.com/1853022
and went further by also doing the kicks to the front and the front-side. Felt like I had really worked my muscles when I had done 20 of each with each leg.
Then I went further and searched to see how many "no equipment needed" exercises there are and found quite a few! www.fitsugar.com/tag/no+equipment+ne
Bring on 2010, I am so ready!!
