Hi All,

I am new to the SparkTeam too. I hope to gain inspiration and give inspiration on our jouney to good health. I read something that said, be ready when you are 65, be fit and ready to respond because someone you care about may need your strength and help. Not close yet, but want to be ready....hoping that some day it will be a precious grandchild.

Thanks for letting me join in............gibb04

Welcome to all the new members!

It's very (sadly) true that your leaders have failed this team. I, as one, can only answer to my own issues. I do vow to make this team great, and active, again!

We've held local picnics, hikes and lunches in the past...but, alas, it's been some time. If you want to hold a group walk, bowling, lunch, hike, bike or any other activity you have my support and the full access to me sending out a team email. If my crazy schedule allows...I'll be there as well.

I hope that like a Phoenix from the ashes this team will rise again!

Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If I quit, however, it lasts forever.

Chime in anytime anyone would like to get together for a walk/talk or a healthy meal. I'm game.

Cool. Maybe when good weather is back we can meet at local parks and take walks.
So many nice parks all around the city.

There were some meet ups in the past. As far as online things, there used to be daily and seasonal challenges. But there wasn't always a large response, which is probably why they haven't continued.

I have also met a good friend on here and we walk together quite often in good weather. That's the nice thing about a local group.

Well, I've met several people from this site. I met OhCowgirl - she's a good friend. I met another friend, GWTriker a few times, and went to a hockey game that Cpresson played. I met BillAlex... and his wife once at a park walk. ---- Meetups or get-to-gathers are possible. If anyone has a suggestion such as a walk/talk, a healthy meal out, etc... I'm game for Sundays or Mondays. Normally, I work 12 hr night/days Tues- Sat. so those days are usually out for me.

I'm 53, married forever, and about 75 lbs overweight. Friends that encourage healthy eating or walking, I'm game to meet. I live in Grove City - the closer the better, but OhCowgirl lives in the north side of town and location hasn't stopped us from being friends.

Seriously, I'm always in the market for a new friend. Suggest something and I'll try to make it.

There haven't been any organized get togethers in quite a while. Unfortunately this team is not as active as it has been in the past.

Welcome. I haven't learned my way around Spark People yet.
Does this Columbus group ever have rallies (not sure what that is)
Yet,
Or get together at metro parks or the zoo to walk & talk?
What does this group do?
Thanks

Welcome to SP! emoticon

My advice would be to take some time to explore the site, read the articles that interest you and start out with small, manageable goals that will build your confidence.

Welcome to SparkPeople. :)

My advice would be to Never Give Up! When things get rough or you run out of motivation, there are resources and teams on Spark to get you over the bump in the road.

Hello,

I'm new to 'SparkPeople' - looking forward to chatting with you and sharing like minded conversation on this journey to loose weight and KEEP it off in 2014!

This being the first day of my 'GROUP' weight loss journey with SPARK, please see that my hand is extended in 'internet' friendship and will respectfully/sincerely reply when needed.

Any helpful tips regarding weight loss, diet and exercise will be greatly appreciated
