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.

Exercise 1st... Spark 2nd. Works for me!

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

Instead of giving myself reasons why I can't I give myself reasons why I can.

Tired of starting over? Stop giving up!!

emoticon 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

Hi and welcome to all the new members that have joined SP in the last few weeks. I now how frustrating making a lifestyle change can be especially when you feel like your walking through it alone. i will be happy to walk besides all of you and help you through this battle

My name is Carrie and when i started my SP journey back on 7/4/2010 I had help getting started in my journey as well. i think i was about 235-240.Since then I have lost a total of 20-30 pounds working the sparkpeople.com program.

Here are a few sites you can go to that will help you manage your way through SP site.

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.

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.
