5% Winter Challenge

Monday, January 14, 2019

For probably the last eight months or so I have decided to be super involved with Spark People. I do Spark challenges. I am in the Maintenance team. I actively participate in interacting with others on Spark.
I owe some of this interaction to the 5% challenges. I did my first one in the Fall 5% Challenge. While I will admit it was a bit overwhelming at first, the Shooting Star team was so very helpful. Especially @LADYLUK. Others on the team reached out as well. I asked for a buddy and was assigned one, who knew we would become such good friends and supporters of each other. I am currently getting to know another buddy! I have to say being on these challenges has really helped me stay on track and be accountable.
All the other things I am involved in on Spark add to it and help me too.
I encourage all my fellow Sparkers to get involved! Be active. Light a Spark! That is what we are all here for. We never know when something we say may Spark someone else!
We really are all a team on this site. The help, encouragement and resources are here for all of us!

    I also found the 5% Challenges extremely supportive. I especially liked the LTGL (Living the Good Life) challenges each week. They really helped me establish and maintain some healthy habits.

    I smiled as I read "it was a bit overwhelming at first" … Oh yeah. I can relate to that one! But, as you have shared, our teammates are so very helpful and they step up to support us and help get us oriented. So many fellow STARFISH have provided support and inspiration over the years. emoticon Go Starfish!! emoticon emoticon

    And, like you I have also experienced a bundle of support from our fellow maintainers.

    Keep up the great work, Pam! … and emoticon
