LillyBelle8, welcome and thank you for "rattling us up" emoticon emoticon so to speak. Becky is a great leader that often motivates us and seeks answers to all of our questions. She creates fun challenges and many other things. As well as Maggie and other team members. But sometimes life gets in the way and its hard to be on top of things 24/7.

LillyBelle, thank you for nudging us back into full action, Yes, we are a team and we should all participate when the leaders aren't able to.

Maggie, I also got infected with the recent virus and I still don't have my main PC back. Hope that you are able to get back online very soon,

I love SP and the Mediterranean Way.

Also, I found this team when I read a member of this team's success story. After reading her blog I simply looked to see what teams helped her find success and I just clicked on that link and it brought me here. She may not be on here everyday, but in her absence I know that she will be back to tell us all about her success from her hard work that she put into her goals while she was away. There are only so many hours in a day to work, track nutrition, get your workout on, and have the time to check in. Not to mention all the in between. There are also members that are here every single day to support all of us members on our progress as well. emoticon

I just love this team; and although I hate to admit that in the past I have joined other teams, but every single time I log on I always check here first. Sometimes I find that I only make the time to huddle in the other teams that I have joined. I get most of my support from these lovely people here that check in every day, take the time to read my blogs, and they send me goodies. My absolute favorite is the games we play on the challenges forum, they help me stay focused on my goals, learn about things I would have never thought to explore, and give that real high five to everybody that participates. Our team might not have 1000's of members included, but the support I get feels like it is from 1000's of friends. Hope anybody that is looking for that special team finds it here. emoticon

Thanks!

I started this group because I couldn't find a team that followed the Mediterranean way! My doctor told me to begin eating this way to lower my cholesterol since I didn't want to go on meds. This way of eating works!! It is so easy to follow, but not much different than what SP suggests, too! We are all on track!

I may not have been as active as I used to be, but I do check in everyday. If you ask a question we are here to answer. If we don't know the answer right away... we will let you know and then go find the answer for you. I used to be so active before I started watching our new granddaughter a year ago. I'm 66 and chasing a toddler around is a challenge in itself!! LOL!! But I do check in every day to see what's going on with the teams.

So as you can see this team created with a lot of really wonderful people! You are right... the team does make the team!

The only reason I said anythin s because I am so excited abot finding u guys. I was looking for a mediterranean typediet and there u guys were. I just wanted to find a support team that could help me and answer tough questions. When I checked the date of the last entry there were entries made.

With that said it is unreasonable to think that a facilitator should be more vested that th participants.... WE ARE PART OF IT TOO!!! I hope that we offer the same support that you offer through showing up daily. Several years ago I had a successful weight loss group on yahoo. I think it depnds on keeping people involved. One of the things I tried to do is break us down into regions durin several challenges. I had us do challenges about minutes exercised, I asked that the leaders tried to send something inspirational daily t let ppl know that they were being thought of and I tried to schedule a chat once a month. And whether ppl showed up or not; I was there. That wherewas always someone that wanted to 'be ok' and needed a pep talk. Their strength kept me going and I hope that me strength kept them going.

It is more active than some of my teams that I even lead, which is sad to me. We have posted and no one seems to participate except for a few, which includes the leaders. GRRR!!

Becky -

No need to apologize. We all have other responsibilities in our lives. Set backs do occur. The team is everyone on the team not just the leader(s) who make it what it is.

I must say that this saddens me to learn that the team has given off the appearance of not being active. We've had some set backs this past winter, and I apologize for dropping the ball.

All of your posts are encouraging - because I just stumbled on to this team, I really don't know what to expect or how to contribute. Your remarks have all been very encouraging and warm, and yes, I think I'll have to agree that this is an active team! What am I looking for? Well, I don't really know for sure, but I do thrive on the success stories of others - I like to hear about little bits of information that have proven helpful to someone else. I'll just kind of hang around the edges for a while and soak up some of your enthusiasm for this way of eating!

I may not post or join in the challenges as I have other groups I lead and that I am on. I just don't join everything, but I do have to say that this group is active.

I agree with another post....what are you looking for if you feel it isn't active? Just wondering!

Good Morning! I would say we are fairly active. We're kind of in a transition right now. I've been sick for the last month with pneumonia, Maggie lost her computer due to a virus, and we recently lost one of our Team Leaders because of an upcoming surgery. So we are just quiet now trying to regroup.

It's been a great team! I started it less than a year ago because of all the benefits I saw with eating this healthy way. Mediterranean Diet is really NOT a diet but a way of life. You will find it very easy and satisfying.

Maggie has a couple challenges that are on-going. I hope you will check in with them. I'm sure our set back was just temporary. I'm back to my "fighten' self" and ready to get this ball rolling! How 'bout you? Are you with us?

I'd say it's pretty active. It has challenges, games and just people linking articles and interesting stuff. Plus, members I know are extremely nice!
