New and trying to figure out how to get friends

Wednesday, December 05, 2012

Still a newbie and still trying to figure out how to make friends here. I like the communities I joined and were picked out for me. Everyone is very supportive but I'm tired already of my only friends being the ones I get automatically.

Today my goals are to finish doing the never ending dishes and major cleaning of my boyfriend's apartment. 1 hour down and I feel like I barely made a dent. Spent 90min doing REALLY heavy duty cleaning last night. Up and down the stairs with bags of trash and cans and bottles.

My breakfast was shifty but he has no healthy food and I was starving (I woke up at 4 am and went to bed at 11:30pm emoticon ) . Luckily I fell back to sleep a couple hours later for a bit so I'm much more awake now emoticon
I just love these emoticons! I'll be blogging more pertinent info later emoticon

    I think it's easy to "add" friends here on SP- but kinda hard for me to find people I connect with.

I try to find those who are about my age, have the same amount of weight to lose, have the same body type and goals (height, starting weight, goal weight), and/or who just seem friendly and inspiring emoticon

Feel free to add me as a friend! emoticon

I try to be social on here but still trying to find my "place."

    Spark people is an odd place. People just kind of appear out of the wood work. IF you do the best you can to work through the site, join the groups, etc, you will get friends to help you on your journey! emoticon

    Another great way to get friends is to reply to posts on your teams. Whenever someone creates a new post on your teams, you can sign up to get an email if you don't already. Post a response. I have gotten a lot of friends that way.

    A great way to get friends is to post on other people's blogs! They will often return the favor. Also joining a challenge is great. The 5% Winter Challenge will be starting soon! Good luck!
