Merry Christmas, Patricia! I hope your Christmas season is everything you want it to be!
Before I say anything further... Team leader? Nope, not me! Maybe some time in the future, but not now... too much on my plate.
If it's the lack of participation that's disturbing you, I think that is to be expected given the time of year.... November/December are always slow (so's June to September). I only dropped in because I was on the computer playing with my new toy (a Sony eReader!), and saw you pop up. I won't be back on Spark until after the first week in January. Participation on all teams is going to pick up then.
Additionally, this will always be a slower team, by way of participation, because of it's nature. Most people starting out on this journey aren't focused on eating 'clean' (unless they have health issues), they are looking to drop pounds as quickly as is reasonable, and cardio is by far a greater attraction than is building muscle mass through strength training.
I'll be around more in the New year and I will contribute... but you know me, too... I'm a lot more blog than I am team oriented. I'm looking into getting Tosca's book... now for my eReader, if possible. :) I really like the idea of reading and discussing the book.
I also really like the two threads you started.. I was never consistently using the points wheel before, because I just leave myself logged in and my page up all of the time. Now I'm at least getting my points when I get here and there's a thread response in my inbox.
I do know people I would be willing to invite to the team in the new year, if that would help. What were your expectations? Perhaps if you shared those and gave the rest of us a picture of what 'working out' would look like, we (*I*) could be more supportive.
I'm going to give up the team leader role. It's not working out ... lol
I'm not sure what anyone wants because there is so little participation. Maybe someone else has some ideas??? I hope!!!! I only stepped up to the role because it had so little participation and I really like Eating Clean.
I wish the team the best! And I'll still be lurking in the background because I believe that what we eat matters!
