No. I when I discovered zumba, I brought every one I knew at least once, but i'm still going by myself. I would love to have a gym buddy because I don't need motivation to go to zumba, but going to the gym is another story!
I use Spark People mainly as my support system. My family and friends aren't too interested. I do have a lady who lives in my apartment block who has asked me to go for walks with her some time, but we haven't gotten together as yet.
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills. From whence commeth my help? My help commeth from the Lord who made heaven and earth. flemidg

"The world is one country and mankind its citizens" one of the many truths spoken by Baha'u'llah and "Love is the light that guideth in darkness, the living link that uniteth God with man, that assureth the progress of every illumined soul."
I don't have anyone in my neighborhood; Richard Simmons on tape and DVD is the closest I come to a fitness buddy. My daughter, also a member of SP, is my best friend and we try to motivate each other, but living more than 1,000 miles apart and both living busy lives, we are limited in what we can do. SP helps with the trackers and a few friends I have made here.
I use SparkPeople as my fitness buddy--since it is reliable and always available. In the past, when I have had fitness buddies, one of us has had to bow out (for various reasons), which impacted both of us. The SP way is guilt free, very reliable, and so so good!
How are you doing with a support system and have you enlisted someone close by as a fitness, nutrition, stress, or goal buddy? Or do you use SparkPeople as your support center?
For me, I would say I use SparkPeople as my support center. Most my friends and family know I am active on this site and I am usually the person who is their goal buddy of encouragement and motivation.
