BIGHAIRTEXAN; I agree with you that the cooler it gets, even if it's raining, I'll enjoy it a lot more!

A-NEW-TARA: Yeah, who would've thought that sending an article relating to what they were going through could turn out to be a personal challenge between two team members here? I love it. That buddy system is working, yes, but this wasn't from that system. It was just that I had found something and sent it on to the person I thought it could help and it wound up in a challenge between the two of us!

ABELFDM: I'm so sorry to hear that your buddy fizzled out on you. That does happen. But don't you give up. There's plenty of us to go around. If you can't find someone, take the initiative and reach out to who you'd like to buddy up with and see if it's even a possibility with that individual. What do you have to lose?

KATEM200: So true, so true. That "challenge" word is an amazing motivator and encouragement!

BIGHAIRTEXAN: We will be there there for one another cuz we both kinda share the desire to be successful in our journey here. We both want to be healthier and we both need to lose weight. It's a perfect bond to keep us together and accountable to one another.

I tried having an accountability buddy (not thru SP) and it was more like an "excuses buddy." She always had a bad week and always had an excuse why she couldn't eat and exercise better. It was really NOT encouraging. You guys be there for each other... NO EXCUSES, and root each other on.

Don't take yourself so seriously. No one else does.

The definition of insanity is to keep doing the same thing all the while expecting different results.

Timing has a lot to do with the success of a rain dance.

It's amazing what the word "challenge" and a little bit of accountability can do :)

That is awesome! It always seems to make it a little bit easier when you have someone to report to about your progress. That is how I started back in June but then my weight loss buddy bailed on me and things have not been so easy since then b/c I lost that support and accountability factor. Great job superachiever!

We all have the same 24 HOURS. Make yours count!

You go girl! You'll get in this good habit, and then the weather will cool off so that walking is even more enjoyable and you'll be unstoppable!

I am so psyched. I was in contact with a member here about an article I saw that I thought would be helpful to her. We have now agreed to hold each other accountable to complete our own little mini-challenge of walking every day and we're going to compare our notes and cheer and root each other on to victory. I am sooooooo excited bout this. I've already gotten myself out the door in the morning the last two days to take my walk. Just needed a little encouragement and this little mini-challenge between the two of us is all it took.
