I realize I'm really late to comment on your post. I move in and out of SP often. I need stay in more than out. This may be the longest stretch I've had in a long time.

As far as this group goes. I'd just like to share ideas for volunteering, especially fundraising. I'm active in a few different nonprofits. Always looking for ideas. Just hanging out with other like minded people. I wish I could win the lottery and just volunteer full time. Let's try to get this team back to being active.

What do other people think?

If you got a traffic ticket would you break every traffic law the rest of the day? Then why toss the whole day over a slice of pizza? ~Indygirl

Good afternoon Spark Friends!

I wanted to take a minute to reach out to each of the clubs I知 a moderator for. I joined SparkPeople a few months back and was actively taking the challenges and making friends and accomplishing my weight loss goals. Then a few things started to change in my life. I had to deal with a family crisis, some health complications of my own, and an 8-yr old child who is suffering from yet-to-be-diagnosed health issues. I don't have healthy coping skills, so my Binge Eating Disorder has been taking control a lot and my weight went from 144 lbs back up to 158 lbs. I was so proud of myself; 144 lbs took me out of the obese classification to the overweight classification, so I ate my way right back into obesity. I am realizing that, despite all the chaos in my life right now, I need the support system and accountability that I received by being active on SparkPeople. I also miss the friendships and gamification. :)

Most of the groups I知 moderating have been quiet, but quiet or not I would like to see some interactions and friendships forming in here! I壇 also love to know why you joined this group in the first place, what you get out of it, and what changes you would like to see to improve the group. I壇 also love to set some team goals that we can work on together. Any input you have would be greatly appreciated.!

Also, who all is familiar with the chat app Discord? I would love to set up a Discord server for each of the groups I知 a moderator for. It痴 free to sign up, and you have your own inbox messages, plus servers about different topics and the ability to voice chat, have a chat room, etc. We could have a voice chat once a week or something like that. Check out Discord, and let me know if there is any interest. :)

I知 happy to be back, and I look forward to interacting with you all soon.

Kelly :)
