It took me a year after joining Sparkpeople to find a team that really worked for me to lose weight. One not so large that I didn't connect to team members, but one large enough to have different people in it and get help and encouragement from members.

BLC has smaller groups so you connect the members.
Different teams have different focuses - and can include one or more of the following: accountability, nutrition, exercise, pushing you hard to get the challenges done, helping you improve your life (balancing it, learn how to be more healthy, etc.), and more. Some are more social and some are less social. Some have fun challenges and some have challenges you get to choose items specific to you, some have challenges every day and some only a few days a week - so you can find what fits for you.

I am the team captain of the Renegades - after a few years I decided to make a team that was just what I wanted. We do the basics we all have to do to lose weight - exercise, eat on your food plan (whatever that is), and do strength training (so we lose fat and not our existing muscles). But you can add to that what specifically works for you and chat with the group about what might work for you (sometimes we have to try a few food plans/exercise plans before we find what works for us to consistently lose weight).
We are huge on accountability - if you don't do the work then you won't get the results.
We don't do a lot of socializing, focusing instead on losing weight (guideline to spend more time exercising then online reading posts).

Come check out the BLC challenge and find a team that fits for you.

If you are serious about losing weight, you need to join the BLC challenge. I was on a plateau for years and joining the BLC got me over the hump to my ultimate weight loss goal. I am still maintaining today. I love my Navy Ninjas and if you like a chatty group, they are the ones to join!

Words are not enough to describe how awesome this challenge is. I have gained friends, support and so many ways to find a plan that works for me to lose weight. As you all know, losing weight is not an exclusive plan, you need a lot of factors weighed in to work on a plan to stay healthy. And I found this being a part of the navy ninjas. My team is always there to support in different walks of life, make me smile, lift me up, suggest some nutrition tips, modified exercise...to share good news, bad news. This is a family.

Kudos to the admin, who keep everything going smoothly and supporting everyone with their individual goals and needs.
Come join this wonderful family of friends, supporters and sometimes to give us the "kick" we need on this journey towards a healthy lifestyle!
