Pick ONE THING you will change this month that will help you get back on track. Share what that is. It can be simple. In fact, it is better to set small goals than to make a big one you can't keep. Share what you are challenging yourself to do. Let us know how it is going.

Does anyone have an idea on another meeting? It could be a walk in the park like last time, or it could be an event (haven't checked to see what's going on in the area), or it could be coffee or lunch.

My name is Vanessa and I am hoping as a new co-leader here to get to know everyone on the team. If everyone could check in an introduce themselves again I would appreciate it. I'd love to see some new messages and huddles on the team site, and maybe we can organize some get-togethers in the coming months. Let me know how y'all feel about things, give me some feedback...please! Wed, 14 Jan 2009 08:38:09 EST Hi Hi Hi! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=-1x19989x21738101 I'm Vanessa, a single mom living here in the Wiregrass. I moved to Alabama after Hurricane Katrina took my Biloxi, MS home. I realized a year ago that I was closer to 40 than 30, and decided it was time to get healthy, though I never did a whole lot to act on it. Then about 6 weeks ago I had a bit of a scare and decided that now was the time! So...here I am working on getting healthy and looking to get motivated and to motivate others. <em>104</em> Sun, 11 Jan 2009 15:37:46 EST Hi everyone! http://www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/team_messageboard_thread.asp?board=0x19989x21730708 Hi all!
