I am also just starting out and felt it would be find for me to use this spark team as my coach. But when I really thought about it, the purpose (for me) of a coach is accountability, and for that I need a real person. I finally asked my sister (who does not have weight issues) and she was thrilled. She went out and bought the book! She also got me the workbook. We are now reading together. Good luck. Thanks for posting
Hi Lisa, Many team mates use the message boards here as a collective coach. I do think it is really good to have one individual coach if possible, but if you cannot find one, then use the team. (Back when I started, I actually hired a coach.)
Sparkfully Yours, Judi
