SEVERSULL, are you in AZ? You mentioned Scottsdale in one of your posts and all I can think of is AZ. If so, I believe there is a SP team for that area. Go to Community, then click Sparkteams from the drop down menu. Type Arizona in the Search box and 10 different Arizona teams come up. Perhaps that will help you find some local people to exercise with.

Thanks for the welcome. I have had a lot on my plate which has interferred with me looking at the sparkspeople website. It all seems over whelming but I intend to keep at it.
How does one go about finding out about joining activities such as hiking, walking, social get-togethers.
I am currently working out pretty regularly, use to be an athlete so it is coming back fairly easily. Feeling much better and really excited to reach my goal.

Hello I am new to sparkpeople and working at learning to get around the website and using it properly.
I am also new to Scottsdale and would like to take part in any activities that may be planned by the sparkspeople members.

I am in my early 50's, have been working out since Nov 4 and on a mission to lose 401bs.

I just remembered another responsibility - to read and comment on team member blogs. That is something I simply have not gotten to.

No one will feel bad whoever gets assigned just so we have a leader who posts and recognizes the members. Thanks for your part in putting this team back on the map, Sharon. I look forward to staying here.

Thank you Sharon, I don't think any one of us will be discouraged if we are not assigned. Thank your for all the work you do.

The response to my message has been overwhelming. I can't thank all of you enough for your willingness to help. The dilema now is that so many of you actually want to help and only 2 or 3 will be given co-leader responsibility. Please do not be discouraged if you are not assigned. You can still be a great help just by coming to the team threads regularly and posting to encourage others and welcome new ones.

If you are serious about wanting to co-lead and you have been with SP for 3 months or more, there is a team for community leaders and when you belong to that team Coach Jen periodically posts a request for leaders. That is how I got assigned to this wonderful team. Just, please, if you are assigned to co-lead another team, don't leave this one. Okay?

I did start the monthly discussion thread when Beth was not doing it and would be glad to do that. I know we all need encouragement and I think it's important to at least post on the thread you start on a regular basis.

A co-leader of a team is a member who has been with SP for at least three months. The responsibilities of a co-leader are to welcome all newcomers to the team, answer questions, and know where to tell people to go to find the answer if they don't know the answer themselves. Co-leaders also open new threads for the monthly chat forum and challenge forum, remove old "sticky topics" and tag new "sticky topics". We just generally keep the team up and running.

This team has over 140,700 members and is growing daily.
