Hi, I'm from NM. Besides all the other great suggestions, Click the option to manage your teams and settings and then click the button about mapping. Each team has a button at the bottom of the team page for seeing a map and dots with everyone on the team that has mapped their home. I hope that is clear. I'm on my own also, but I have an online buddy and that is a real help also. We email each other everyday. Jean
My name is Jean and I'm from Wellton, Arizona; USA

from me in NC. Make sure to post on your sparkpage that you are looking for a spark fitness buddie. If someone in the posts has offered to be an accountablity buddy take them up on it since it will keep you both motivated to move even if not in the same area.
You could also do a post named: Calling all Buckeyes I need a walking buddy and see who responds.
Good luck and please feel free to join in on some of the team challenges I post in the Fitness/exercise forum. Just keep moving, tracking, and small steps will get you to your goals. -Suzy

Welcome to the group. I see you do not have a SparkPage made up with your profile. I would suggest making a page where you have a section indicating you need a SparkBuddy. Your SparkPage is also where people can leave you messages other than SparkMail. Good luck with your goals.
from NJ, I am looking for someone myself but until then I have been going it alone, keep blogging and hopefully someone will turn up. Stay on the website and reading some of the blogs is also good motivation........

I sure hope you find someone. I am in an even worse position to find a person to exercise with. We live in Mexico 1/2 the yr and in Granisle BC Canada the other half. Not a spark for many kms.

and I'm at Ft Jackson SC I am also looking for an accountability partner. I hope you find one, it is so important that we help one another. Your in the right place, take advantage of everything this website has to offer.
