In my last blog entry I spoke about how being a member of a BLC team here on Spark People has really helped me. I think of myself as a loner; I prefer to do quiet things on my own and the companionship of a discerning cat is as much as I've needed to feel as if I am socializing.
But in January I joined a Trivia Team and we played in a League in loud bars with people young enough to be my grandchildren--if you stretch it a bit.
We came in 2nd overall. This afternoon we won the finals and our team split $700. I don't think I have ever earned so much in two hours in my life.
I have received a great deal from Spark Teams, too. Worth more than $700 is the ability to join a team challenge which, if followed, will result in a very likely chance to lose weight and to gain fitness. Team work has motivated me to increase my stamina and to extend my muscles. It's true!!
