I stay here with this team because it's the team I started out on. Though I've reached maintenance, if I want to stay there I know that I need to not only continue helping others, but I also need their (YOUR) help to stay on track and challenge me to continue to find goals so that I won't go back to my unhealthy ways!

I came here at the request of a friend who is no longer part of SparkPeople and cannot even stand to hear its name!!!
Once I got here, my life, as positive as I already was, became more positive. What I believed about helping myself after reading book after book and implementing it into my life, was reinforced and I was energized. I am still here today because I am a leader of 3 teams now. I have come far enough in my understanding of the health journey that I can pass information onto others. I stay also because this is my Motivation refueling station as I call it. When I come here, within minutes of posting and reading, I'm revved up and ready to get back at things full swing ahead. I'm here for the long haul. Once I reach my goal, I won't leave. I'll stay to help others also reach theirs and celebrate their successes and encourage them in their down times.

I am here because I have the urge to connect to people who are going through this journey of health and fitness...and for accountability. I find that the accountability and "checking in" make me much happier. And I also am inspired by those who have been and continue to be successful. I like to see that others can do this, too...

I am here because I know that if I tried to do this by myself I would not make it but with the help and support of SparkPeole and other friends I am positive I will make it to my goal and possible even beyond.

What keeps me here? If I feel alone in the struggle, it is overwhelming. I cannot do it alone. Pure and simple...I cannot do it alone.

I was sent this in an email from JACKLYNTD about the challenge & thought it must be shared with you all.

Well when I found this site what seems like forever ago it was such a great boost to my motivation to keep going. Then life took over and anything and just about everything I can think of prevented me from continuing with following the site until now.
I am back to being determined to stick with it and get rid of this weight improve my mood and just feel better all around. I have a gal I work with now who has decided it is time for her to do the same. So between everyone on here and her helping me to keep me on the right path I am hoping by the time my best friend gets married next summer I will be happy to stand up in front of all of those people as her bridesmaid without feeling self conscious.
I look forward to getting to know everyone again. :)

Always put more into relationships than you take out and you will always have an excess to fall back on when times are difficult.

I have found the accountability and team support very beneficial in meeting my goals. It doesn't change when the maintenance weight is met - it would be too easy to "stray" for too long, then suddenly find that 10 pounds have snuck back on while I wasn't paying attention!

Like you Jude, I'm here because I am on that constant journey to a healthier me. I keep trying and trying to loose the weight I need to to be healthy. I'm in my 50s now and thinking it's now or never. I need to connect with others who struggle like me for that added moral support. I'm also returning to weight watchers as well. I need to be accountable to people to help keep me on track. So thanks again for leading our group. Hopefully a lot more people will come back!

Ok my Challenge to you for the rest of September, is to think hard about 'Why are you here?' and 'What's keeping you here?' then tell us all about it.

I'm here because I need to keep living......a healthier life. I haven't reached all my goals, I've slipped many times but at least I'm heading the right way.
What's keeping me here......you are! You and all the many Sparkfriends I have made since joining. There is no judging, there are no snide comments, no 'put downs', you just give support, friendship and a feeling that we are all in the same boat and we will always be there for each other. Thank you all for keeping me facing the right way.
