6. Add to Your SparkFriends. Near the center of your SparkPage, you'll see a section for SparkFriends. The easiest way to add someone to your friends list is to click the "Add as SparkFriend" button, which you'll find when you visit that person's SparkPage. This might be someone you've met on a Team, someone who was helpful and answered one of your posts on the Message Boards, or just someone who inspires or interests you based on his or her SparkPage. Don't be shy about adding new people to your SparkFriends list. Most of the time, the person you add will usually add you to their list, too, or send you a message thanking you for "the add!" If you're looking for a buddy, consider looking to your SparkFriends first!

When it comes to finding support to reach your goals, one thing is clear: The more you interact in our positive Community, the more likely you are to find a buddy (or several!) and get the support you need—whether online or in real life. Just like you, everyone at SparkPeople wants to transition to a healthier lifestyle as smoothly as possible—and they're ready to give and receive support and motivation. So take advantage of these Community features to find buddies, expand your support network and build lasting friendships on the site.

When times get tough, it's nice to have a buddy to lean on. When things are going well, that same person can celebrate with you. So don't be afraid to ask some SparkPeople members if they'd like to buddy up today!

  • So I think that I learned about a site called WannaBuddy while cruising around this site, looking for a workout buddy, but now I can't find the page. Well, anyway, the WannaBuddy site connected me with someone in my little town who was looking for a workout buddy, too. There's no charge and no "lose 20 pounds in 2 days" kind of thing. Took me about 3 days. - 3/8/2014 9:46:21 PM
