My friends list has whittled down

Monday, June 03, 2013

Its sad but I think that less than 30 of my SP friends are still active. How many SP friends of yours are still active? I have some good friends that are still here with me and I talk to them regularly but it is a shame to see that some of the sparkers that motivated me to lose 3 years ago with their successes have left their pages. Maybe SP should link to FB....LOL. I'm sure most of us are all active on FB. Well I am anyway.

Well my only goal for this month is to win my Diet Bet I've paid for. Can't lose my money! LOL. Summer is definitely here in GA!

    I noticed that too! Hardly anyone is on spark from when i started! A lot of people will add me, then never say anything!

    A lot of my friends check their starting date group. I had one lady tell me that she and I were one of only a handful of people who started together who were still active. Some people reach goal and leave and others just move on.

    Good luck on the diet bet! Sound like a great incentive. LOL.

    That happens. You lose some friends and gain others.

    I should go through and clean up my friends list. It's especially sad to see how many people have actually taken down their SparkPages altogether, not just abandoned them. I don't want to remove inactive people though, because they may come back like I have. In fact, since I returned to Spark a month ago, I've seen probably 4 or 5 others return as well and if I's removed them from my friends list, I would have never known.

    I have too many friends to keep up with. My long lasting ones are from my BL team. I think we sometimes "friend" too many folks. Relationships take time. Have a healthy day! emoticon

    Many of my friends are gone as well. I was away for quite a while but was glad to start back right where I left off. Now I look forward to new friends and new ideas!

    You're doing great... you're active on FB and sparkpeople... I have only a few spark friends and you're right most of them are no longer active.... Have you tried to communicate with them? I know at one point I went through my list, and left small notes on their pages just to say hi, I haven't seen you around lately... hope all is going great with you... and I had a few people months later actual reply back to me... I know I've disappeared from the site for a month to a year at a time, but it was always someone leaving me a message that caused me to come back... it was nice to know that someone in the world took the time to just say hi... often times I was feeling low... so it was a small blessing... and a lot of the time, I wouldn't reply back immediately for whatever reasons... but eventually like now I got back on... and reconnected... I find this is usually the same for real life personal friends and family... people are just waiting for somebody to say hi!...

    Don't be discouraged though, cause you're here to take care of you... and seems like you're doing just that emoticon I'm glad you blogged... I've learned that often times it feels good just to let it out... emoticon
