I'm picking it back up! I got tired of the excuse of too much computer at work, so I'll be on here. I may not be super active except on weekends but I am going to check in at least briefly every day to log my nutrition and exercise.

Jona ;P

I love that too.! Haute, I second what Shannon and Kimmie said. If you need something different on a challenge- just ask for suggestions. I will continue to tell you --- you are an absoutly wonderful woman. !

We would never think less of you!

I have been with this team from the very beginning, we have gone through ups and downs! All we want is people to share this journey with! You are doing amazing! Don't be down on yourself!

I have started the new threads with this in mind...everyone is different, there are many different people in here at different weights, different physical levels, and at different places in their journey!

I have started the new challenge thread with that in mind, since I couldn't even keep up with my own challenges! LOL

I wanted everyone to stay motivated and to keep me motivated! Posting your exercise is motivating to us all!

You are doing great and I want you to believe in yourself!!!

I hope you have a great day!!!

im here and im on board. since we are all being honest with ourselves and our teammates, i am going to lay it on the line here. i weigh alot more than mostly all of you and thus i feel like alot of the threads about exercise are just way out of my reach at this current moment. i still read them and someday definately want to be able to join in more but right now, at my weight, there are certain physical limitations i have so i dont dare post in those threads for those reasons.

i DO love this group, what is stands for and want to be a part of it. i am just a couple steps behind you all on the physical side. mentally and emotionally though, i am right there, along for the ride!

thanks for letting me vent about my own issues, insecurities, fears, etc. and not thinking less of me..i hope nobody here does.

Hey ladies, sorry I am just getting back in here. On top of being gone for a few days there is some fishy stuff going on at work so I have been lying low and not getting on at work. I know time is an issue for me and some times I just get bogged down with recording and what not everything that I don't feel like doing it. Yet again an excuse. I love you ladies, I love that this group is small and I definitely think we can really do some motivating of each other. I know for me i like the daily chat threads just the pop in and say HI...In fact I will see if we have one of those going and if not I will start one. I will reach out to you girlies more!

To finish my venting/opinion and frustration:

I absoutly love this team and it was created with my heart and hopes. I know that everyone is at different places in there lives, but please take a look at yourself and determine what is important for YOU to SUCCEED! If it is not this team, okay and I respect that. If you need motivation, help and support than please participate. It is a personal choice of how active you want to be, but please be active - even just once a day! We need everyone to support each other, I know I need you! This team and spark are such a strong compenent of learning new things for the new me.

I have tried to change things up, tryed new ideas and for some reason they bomb and I feel it is because of a lack of commitment, determiniation and of course inactivity. Can anyone else tell me why?

Again, I feel all I hear is excuses - even for me!

I am not saying you HAVE TO participate, but when I read any success story on Spark or even off of spark, the consistant theme to their success I hear is being active both mentally and physically. The mental part I feel is the support, motivation and honesty of LIKE MINDED people like myself - US!

This team is not the only teams I see falling off and I know that things are usually great for the first few weeks, but what makes people be inactive? I know for me - the more active I see other's the more active I become. I love and honestly NEED the support of others to encourage, follow and strengthen me. I get tired of posting to myself!!!!

I hope everyone can respect that this is just my opinion and venting. There is one thing that keeps running through my head - especially for myself and forgive me if it offends you == "The only thing you should quit Miranna is whining, complaining and giving every excuse in the world! Isn't it about time for you to take care of you? What in the 7734 are you waiting for?" So get off your arse, get tough, put on your big girl pants and do what is right for you, damn it!

Thanks Marilee for opening up the conversation!

I love this team and it makes me sad when there isn't anyone posting here! I'm glad there are a few of us still interested in doing this together! I am not a quitter. I have been slacking lately and I don't want to fall! I need everyone here to help me pick myself back up!

I am going out of town on Thursday night until Tuesday night. I will be OK! I am going with my bff (a fellow Sparker)! we have planned all meals and we are going to walk to town everyday to get our exercise!!!

Have a great week team! AND Keep posting!!!

I have been wondering the same and to be extremely frank am concerned of where this team is going. This will sound frustrated and I am.

I started this team so like minded individuals could come together and create positive energy to help fuel ourselves and other's on a positive journey.

This team is small, but is no excuse for not being active. I know when I don't see activity, I am not going to keep posting to myself. We all have challenges in our lives; time, family, events, great weather, etc. - but (in my opionion only) if you are commited to yourself to lose weight, get healthy, get fit, than make time to be active, even if it is only 5 min to log on and tell us how you are.

I have learned over the past 4 months that I have to be real with myself and excuses are not allowed anymore! Excuses is exactly what has got me in the place I am today. If you are bored - come say hi!, If you are unmotivated - come and get some motivation -read a success story. Are you sad or emotional, jump on and vent.

I have to get ready to leave work - so I will vent more when I get home. Just had to write what was on my mind now.

I am sad tha

I personally was out of town this weekend. I am here, I am back. I am feeling very emotional and I am not going to use this as an excuse - I am not sabotaging myself with silliness. I am back and ready to go. I have some goals that I need to meet, how about you?
