Can you believe four years! Although I haven't met my goals (yet) I do agree that I'm still on because if I totally stop I'll never start up again. Plus it is helpful to keep my mind in the right place and conscious of trying to eat healthy because I still log in and keep track.

I am really proud of you and your accomplishments. And the accomplishments of everyone on SP. I do appreciate the friendships that I have made on this team and others. Maybe the team will be more active later on, maybe not. I know I am not alone and there is a place to go to get the help and encouragement I need especially when I need to get motivated again and really hit the healthy living hard.

As I've said before, we can do this. Together. One day at a time.

Not sure... I'm a co-lead on another group that is location-based (one of the SparkAmerica cities) which probably has way more current members and getting team participation is really, really hard. It helps to remember that a ton of people only use SP to track food and fitness and don't even peek their heads into the forums. I think there was more participation here in the beginning since this was a date-based group and when people are first starting out they are more active in finding ways to connect and keep motivated. As with most things, motivation and consistency fades. Who knows how many people are still here after all of that time (we are coming up on 4 years of membership!). I've started removing some of my teams, just to stay focused. But, I've stayed with this one since you're here (MOMTH3WITCH) and because the group and its challenges played a big part of my initial weight loss. I suppose we can stay connected via other aspects of SP, but I keep holding out in case other team members pop in again.

We have lots of members on our team - some still here, some no longer. What would you like to see to keep our team active?
