I'm sure others have said this .too, but when you join with another person towards a common goal and you have similar interests,the percentage of odds in your favor of SUCCESS AT REACHING YOUR GOAL expand GREATLY and most likely YOU WILL SUCCEED!!! I have found ALL the sparkteams to be helpful.....
Whether I need help or can give helpful advice, a sparkteam gives me MORALE,MOTIVATION, and much needed SUPPORT and many of my team members become my SPARKFRIENDS!!! I can see why others who don't have this SUPPORT SYSTEM are flailing in their efforts to go it alone.When I need help,they are there!

I'm putting a plug in for reading "THE SPARK" ! This concept has made a huge difference in my thinking. Keep doing SP even if we don't see immediate results, EVENTUALLY there will come a time when we hit what Chris calls the 'tipping point theory" and things will start happening for the positive. Example: a friend exercised on treadmill for 4 miles a day for 4 months and didn't LOSE ONE POUND, then she started losing 1 pound a day and has kept it off for over a year! We CAN'T give up! :-))
Doing SparkPeople: logging on, tracking your exercise and food, joining sparkteams and being involved with community, blogging, reading, etc.
One of the BEST steps I took was joining SparkTeams that connected me with like-minded people. I believe this is one of the features of SparkPeople that make others' successful. I tried another tracking site but it didn't have some KEY ingredients that SP offers: community, motivational incentives and goal setting. PLEASE join some like-minded teams for the BEST support available! You will see your motivation increase and your success accelerate! Under COMMUNITY search the SparkTeams.
I STARTED INVITING 1 OF MY SPARK FRIENDS TO EACH OF MY TEAMS EVERYDAY IF POSS. IT'S EASIER DOING 1 FRIEND FOR ALL TEAMS PER DAY. I JUST JOINED A NEW TEAM ESPECIALLY FOR SPARK FRIENDS CALLED SPARK FRIENDS COME JOIN US. GOD BLESS ALL! LUV & HUGS CONNIE 247220
