So, I could not stay away....even if I am the only one posting. I have come back to Sparkpeople to try again because I have to lose this weight or I will die. I guess I just don't have it in me to give up because to do so will mean I am giving up on myself.

I think that it is finally time to just move on and give up my attempts to lose weight. I cannot do it without a support system, and I just don't have that. I have no heart for it anymore. I am tired of the never ending attempts and starting over, seeking support and motivation from wherever I can find it only to be the only one trying and never getting that much needed support. I have decided that it just isn't worth it. It seems to be time for me to give up and leave Sparkpeople. I think I am just done!

I miss all of the wonderful people I met here but it is obvious that they just are not going to find their way back and when they do pop in, it seems to be a once in a year or two thing. I will always miss the "friends" I met here. But, life goes on and it seems my time here is done. emoticon emoticon

Awesome, Sherye. So glad you are back and to have a buddy to help me be more accountable. Like you I really need the interaction with others to succeed. Lisa has taken a job since you were last here so, I think that she just has a harder time working in time for SP these days. I am sure that we will see her around from time to time. Like you said, maybe we can revive the team some. Regardless, as long as there is more than one it is a place to go for support. I will work on new goals and get them posted. Are you interested in a mini challenge to kick off our new goals? I will come up with one if you are, or you can come up with one. I am game. By the way....are you on Facebook....some of the Sparklin' Sparkettes are on my page and I do keep up with them that way....Laurie (that started this team), Lisa, Laura, Diana, and Maggie are all on my FB page...Debbie Swaim Jones if you want to add me also.

(((HUGS)))

Hi Debbie,

You and Lisa were doing awesome for so long, sorry to read that your not still active together.
Sounds like a good idea buddying up together, who knows, maybe once the others see us active together they will want to join us.
I'm the same I have really fallen badly and need a kick to get me refocused again - so if your game so am I

((HUGS))..................Sherye

Hi Sherye.

For a while Lisa and I were keeping it going...and Diana popped in now and then...but then it was just me. I really need the support to do this....it is not something I really get at home. I would still be here if anyone was posting. I have tried other teams and just never felt like I fit in with any of them. I hoped for a long time that people would find their way back here, but it just didn't happen. I am here if you want a spark buddy. :)

Hello Debbie.

It really is sad, considering how much I needed the help, but I've found that SP is just not the same and I don't feel that close to any of the teams anymore :(

This was such an awesome team when I started out, but it seems that everyone have gone - so sad

I think it is so sad that this wonderful team died. I miss all of the ladies that were once so active here. SparkPeople just isn't the same as it once was for me. I fought a losing battle, and I lost. emoticon
