I could really use one too... Daily would be good for me or weekdays or a few times a week - I'm flexable....

Boy this is just what I need to get me back on track.

I'd love to find an AP! I'd prefer daily or every few days for check in. Also, if there's anybody who'd like to be able to check in now and then through AIM or Google chat that would be awesome.

Hey Lindsey, count me in. I'm going to say weekly to check in. Whenever I've tried the daily thing with my partner it doesn't work...

This program is fantastic and I HIGHLY recommend. I've found a great friend through this program. You can too!

Have a great week guys!

Rss - We could start an hourly check-in. Not sure when I could get someone else though :) I'll assign you to someone as soon as possible. There are plenty of daily folks out there. Thanks for signing up!

I would like to sign up for an AP. Being new to SparkPeople and dieting in general, I need a daily check in. Heck, can I get an hourly check-in? LOL Just kidding. Daily works for me or weekdays if there are not enough "dailys" to go around.

Good news! Our newest team leader, LPOBIEGLO, has volunteered to head up the Accountability Partners thread! Those of you who are still waiting for an AP assignment should hear from her shortly.

And I'm not abandoning you, so if there are any problems, you can contact any of the team leaders. LPOBIEGLO, me, or HEATHERMARA.

Thanks again for your patience, everyone! I'm looking forward to hearing great success stories from this thread.

Sassybrat, I've sent you a sparkmail - I need to know how often you will be able to check in with an AP before I can assign you.

For anyone else who is looking to sign up, these options are:

-Daily
-Every few days
-Weekdays only
-Weekly

Once I have this information, I can match you up!

Quick update: I have been assigning accountability partners whenever possible. For those who have already signed up, you may have received your assignment. If not, you will shortly, unless I am waiting to hear back from you about how often you want to check in with your AP.

For those who were assigned an AP earlier by TIGANDMAX, you should have received a Sparkmail from me to check in and see how that was working out.

For those who are new to Accountability Partners, please continue to sign up!

And of course, anyone who has questions can contact any of the 30somethings with 100+ to lose team leaders at any time.

Thank you again for your patience!

I know that we had an AP thread started already. Since there is much confusion there, I am resurrecting it.

If you have already signed up under the previous thread, please know that I have your name down and will be contacting you shortly.

Here are the basics . . . If you are interested in having a fellow 30 Something team member to check in with on a regular basis, then sign up! As a pair, you and your partner will give each other support, motivation, praise, etc. If you are having a bad day, then your AP will be there to help you get through it. If you have a milestone that you are celebrating, your AP will be right there with you. The one thing that is requested of you is to make sure you have regular contact with your AP. Remember your partner is counting on you like you are counting on her/him!

Because of the size of this team, it will be very hard to match everyone up based on interest. So, I will being using check-in frequency as a guide to assign partners. So, when signing up, please indicate how often you would like to check in with your AP. Here are the various options:

Daily;
Every Few Days;
Weekly;
Week Days Only; or
Weekends Only.

Please note that the frequency is totally up to you! There is no wrong answer; just what fits best with your life!

I will begin assigning APs this Sunday. But please note that signing up for an AP is on-going! You can add your name onto the list at anytime!

Another thing to note, if you and your AP are not a good fit, then just let me know!

Thanks everyone, for your patience during this leadership transition!
