I started back up on Sparkpeople a month ago. Looking for spark teams. I live in OC but am in LA a lot. Trying to lose this quarantine weight!! So I am doing the program and doing my best to avoid excuses. I don't know about anyone else but I need motivation!

I have just gotten out of the habit of going on the boards. I use SP everyday for tracking and general info.

What gets me is how with this may members in the group it could be inactive. Come on L.A. Sparkers, where are you? We can do this if we all put the time into this group and into weight loss.


Perhaps we procrastinate because with Los Angeles you have cars, buses and the rails to get us everywhere. And it seems like there is a restaurant on every corner.


Thoughts???

The adjustment can be tough sometimes...But don't let it defeat you!!! You probably came here to make some dreams come true, as most of us did, so let's not get started by being a self-sabatuer...You can do it!!! To combat the "lonlies" there's a group of people called the L.A. People Connection that might be helpful. It's not a singles group or anything...It's mainly people who just moved here, or people who want people to do activities with that their normal groups of friends aren't into, like horseback riding, etc.. They have a website and a huge membership, so there's probably a group that's into the hobbies you like. Hope that helps! emoticon

Hi everyone! So I need some encouragement!

I just moved out here to LA from the east coast. Needless to say, it's been somewhat of an adjustment. I keep finding myself going back to food when I get lonely, bored, or upset. I feel extremely guilty after I'm done eating... and I honestly don't really enjoy when I'm eating. I guess it would be considered binging.

I joined a gym over a month ago and have been going pretty consistently but it is like I cancel out what I've been doing at the gym with what I've been eating.

It's gotten quite frustrating and so I'm hoping to find an accountability partner on here. Someone who I have to answer to for what I eat and who maybe needs someone to do the same for them. I've looked into Weight-watcher and Jenny Craig and programs like that but they are so expensive.

Any encouragement would be must appreciated. Thanks!

Well, Friday and Saturday are my days off from work. Friday I have date night with my husband and we usually watch a movie-rented. Saturday is Game Day for college football and I end up reading a book, because I am so bored. Sometimes I even do some exercise because of the boredom. We shall see.

Well, I am pretty boring really. My son(15yrs) who visits me on the weekend is having a sleepover with his buddy. I have an entire weekend of World of Warcraft and Halo 3. I will probably be stuffing pizza down their throats all weekend so the diet might just be a challenge.

Sunday I do church.

Yourself ?????

Whatever it is it has to be better then this!! emoticon

No problem, Mike.

So what're all the Angelinos up to this weekend? Anything exciting?

Norah,

I am afraid I don't do the Sparkpage thing. It reminds me to much of Myspace and I am just not into it. I know if I had one I would never access it and not update it at all. I guess I am kind of old school. In fact I remember when there was no www in the internet.

Well, the ambitious among us could go onto each community's Team Page and either post a message or send individual invites. Other than that, I don't know. And where's your SparksPage?

OK, so we all agree that a consolidation of teams would be nice however how does one acomplish this?

My City (Glendale) has a team but currently it does not even have a leader.

My friends the idea of LA being a city filled with blonds, bikinis and surfers is long over. I am not in denial, just fat!!

Nice to meet you to Norah...

I am new and agree that we need to recruit more members and consolidate from smaller geographical areas.In the physical world, this town is too segregated by geography so it would be cool to at least bring it together in the virtual world. I also agree with Norah and Mike that people in L.A. are in denial about our real level of fitness.

Are they in denial or are they ashamed and embarrassed because the L.A. image is that everyone here is blonde, tan, and skinny. All they have to do is walk the beach in Santa Monica to find out the real deal. Whatever the case, I agree that we should all congregate under in the L.A. Team so I've left all the other geographic teams I had joined. Nice to meet you, by the way, Mike! -- Norah

I just happened to be online and heard you. I think you could say the perople of LA are in Denial. I noticed that a lot of the cities within Los Angeles have teams but they are all pretty small as well. If people just stopped all the local city stuff and joined this group then there would be a lot more involvment.

I just recently joined. I guess people in L.A. don't want to admit that they need to lose weight. j/k

I went to the sparkteams and then from geographic locations, to California to Glendale. There is one but noone is in it.

I am in Van Nuys, which is about 20 minutes or so from Pasadena. Glenadale is closer.

Hmmmm, I thought I looked up Glendale and found it was Glendale, Az. Pasadena is not far from Glendale, maybe 10 miles?

I am not sure if I would want to Volunteer to head up a Sparkteam. I am still what I would consider a "New Guy".

There is a Glendale Spark Team and a Pasadena Sparkteam which I am also on. The Glendale one didn't have anyone running it. Pasadena is on the other side of town from me so I am trying to find something Closer like Burbank. Oh, I did try that but there was one person from Months ago. I am open to trying to recruit more but I think the LA Sparkers is a wide area.

I joined this team a while ago and have noticed it was not the most active on SP. You know the City of Angels is a mighty big place if you consider the entire region. There has to be a lot more LA people on SP then we have here.

Anybody have any ideas on doing some recruiting????

Hi I am new and haven't seen much activity on here. I just wanted to know if anyone was still active on here. Maybe we need to get more members. What do you guys think?
