  • Good plan having a buddy to exercise with. My community has a clubhouse which offers a power walk class three times a week as well as line dancing and a fitness room. Depending on my schedule, I will use those resources. I don't have a problem with motivation as daily exercise has become part of my routine. since joining this program. I have been able to choose longer workouts or piggy back several shorter videos depending on what type of workout I want each day. Believe me, I have surprised myself by being so consistent. I think it's because of eating more nutritious meals and having much more energy as a result. I am sleeping soundly, too. Thank you, SPARK, for the resources and the inspiration I needed. I am a much happier 62 year old! - 10/23/2016 3:24:23 PM
  • I could use a buddy to help me with this challenge. - 12/31/2015 8:27:28 PM
  • My ten and nine year old daughters want to be my spark buddies. 10 minutes of exercise a day? Bring it on! :) - 10/2/2015 11:00:32 PM
  • Lots of hugs. - 8/24/2015 1:26:48 AM
  • Weight loss buddies are great to help keep you motivated and to stay on track. - 6/30/2013 10:00:09 PM
  • My weight loss buddy has been awesome - even though we don't live in the same place and have never worked out together. We encourage each other, share our goals and hold each other accountable. Right now we have an ongoing wager to pay the other $20 if we miss work out days. Doesn't seem like much, but it keeps us working out. - 4/3/2011 6:17:33 PM
    I'm open to the idea of a buddy but I don't think I could be healthy about it. I'm very competitive. I think I would feel crushed if he/she succeeded when I didn't, and self-righteous and proud if I succeeded when he/she didn't. That's not helpful at all. - 7/19/2010 11:32:30 AM
    I agree completely. Check out my blog "What a difference a team makes" on my SparkPage where I tell you the progress I've made with my challenge team mates. We encourage each other, lift each other up when we fall, remind each other of the goals and that we are worth it. - 12/9/2009 2:52:46 PM
  • I agree with this article. My best friend has been my buddy through the last couple of months. She keeps me motivated and I am now at the point that if she has to miss a day exercise I am still motivated enough to continue without her. - 10/4/2009 7:28:35 PM

  • I am looking for a buddy - I am in my late 40's and have 20 pounds to lose... - 10/3/2009 10:08:25 AM
    Looking for a buddy who is in their 40's and has 40-50 pounds to lose. I'm located in Texas and eager to get this ball rolling. You be accountable to me, I be accountable to you. Our goals must be compatible and the focus straight forward.

    Are you in? Summer is here and Fall is approaching. Looking forward to a nice New Year's Eve.

    Please send a message if interested.

  • Is there a person who is in need of a buddy. Priscilla is looking for one. I just can't go it alone. If there is someone who lives in Delaware who has a lot of weight to lose let me know. - 6/28/2009 8:59:59 AM
