    Mary Ann,
    Just wanted to stop by to check on you. I haven't seen you on any of the team forums.
    I have been trying to get a "Spark" going on this team! It's happening slowly, but this is my first time being team leader and I am learning as I go along.
    Check out the team page, we now have team goals, which I will probably change in September, It looks like we will exceed the fitness minutes and the spark points goals. I have also posted to new forums.
    Looking forward to hearing from you. We are all here to support and motivate each other.
    I know for me, the older I get the harder it is to take this weight off. I need all the support and motivation I can get. SP has been amazing for me, I hope you are loving it as well.
