Welcome to Spark...! It sounds like you have a lot to deal with. I'd never heard of the Latex Fruit you taught me something new today!

Its sometimes difficult to essentially start a new group of friends to become accountable with.... However, have you looked at some of the Teams here on Spark? (Under Community on the page header) Pick a topic...and check it out. there are a lot of Teams that aren't active...but have good info still... so do check on the Team main page to see recent post dates, etc. Another thought is to join one of the many existing Challenges: either the "official " ones up above, or any of the ongoing threads here. Just jump right in, introduce yourself, post as often as you want...and see what happens!

I've done the Diabetes Challenge, and several others. And I post on several threads having to do with keeping track of exercise (we each set our own monthly goal)and losing a few pounds(same thing: you set the goal. There are some more Formal Challenges such as the Biggest Loser Challenge that sets up active teams every quarter for friendly competition---you might really enjoy one of those since everyone checks in consistently! The next one starts in Dec: look in the Spark Café thread for. "Biggest Loser Winter Challenge Starts in Dec."

Welcome along, and all the best on your Journey!!

I am looking for a goal buddy (or 2...3...4..) to help keep accountable within this challenge and possibly as a healthier lifestyle buddy in general. I have Latex Fruit Syndrome, ankylosing spondylitis, asthma, and two kids under 3, the oldest with Down Syndrome. I would love anyone to accompany me on this journey, but if you have similar life and health issues, it would be a plus!
