Mon, 11 Jun 2012 12:22:59 EST Weekly Forecasts Dear Spark Friends, <BR> <BR> It has been brought to my attention that having the weekly forecasts posted on so many Spark Teams is quite frustrating for people who are members of all of those teams as they get many duplicate messages both on their teams and in their e-mail.

I'm looking to lose 30 more so I can look bangin for my High Priestess ceremony! Plus, feeling and being healthier makes me feel more in tuned with Mother Earth and the Universe. And I need to get back to that. So glad I found a group of Pagans on here. We can do it!! Tue, 18 Jan 2011 12:37:44 EST Blessings from Amanda in Tukwila (south of Seattle This is my third pagan team. Do most of you belong to more than one? <BR> <BR> I was Sparking on my own until this weekend. I've set a goal of earning 1000 points this month. I got 900 in December. Team postings and huddling are a good way to earn more and reach out to others. <BR> <BR> Are there any other Northwesties on the team?

Fri, 15 Oct 2010 20:09:35 EST Weight Loss this week A little bummed. Only lost 1 lb this past week. Stuck to the Atkins, but for some reason the weight did not what to come off.

Mon, 2 Nov 2009 19:31:53 EST This fear may cause damage without some help Hey, everyone. <BR> <BR> I posted this on one of my other SparkTeams, but I want to get as much help as I can with this. I have claustrophobia - the fear of small spaces. The thing with this fear is that I don't have to be physically in a small space - I could be thinking of being trapped (in an emotional or physical sense) and I'll start becoming fearful. <BR> <BR> The problem I have isn't exactly with the claustrophobia itself. It's what happens when I start to panic. I feel like I can't... Mon, 2 Nov 2009 00:02:04 EST Hi From Evelyn Hi, my name is Evelyn.

Thu, 21 May 2009 13:22:34 EST *Worth Being Heavy For* I am posting this in all my groups. You know how people always describe certain foods as worth being heavy for? I thought it would be fun to list what foods YOU think are worth being heavy for. <BR> <BR> This isn't meant to offend, just harmless fun. I indulge every now and then but with moderation and portion control. Some foods are too good to not bend a little every now and then! I would have to say mine are sharing in the joy of someone's birthday with a piece of cake, a krispy cream don... Thu, 21 May 2009 13:22:06 EST Team Goals How do we make the team goals or who does?

She won't eat or try either. TheSmallest is fine with everything (but she's 2 she'll eat anything) Just wondering. I am so sick of forcing her to try things. An then watching her sit there until until her food becomes like ice, or congeals. Any ideas. I have tried every FUN thing I could look up. Maybe some new recipes are in order <em>20</em> <BR> Thanks Fri, 1 Jun 2007 11:06:07 EST Pagan Festivals Is anyone going to a pagan festival this summer?

I'm new to spark and also new to wicca. I was wondering if anyone on this board has found or written any good spells for weightloss.
