Figuring out the site, etc.

Wednesday, March 12, 2008

So, I'm finally getting a handle of this "SparkPeople" site.

I joined a few teams. I'm hoping the daily challenges one keeps me in check. I have my really good days and my not so good days, as you can tell from my nutrition tracker; I just need a daily goal in mind to keep myself at the right level, I think.

At the moment, aside the weight loss goal, I'd kind of like to make a couple buddies off of this site. I really wish I had people to talk to on a more personal level about things. I think I'd do better if I had someone to catch up with on a near-daily basis, be it in instant messengers, emails... somehow, just to keep the idea fresh and active in my mind. My boyfriend, bless his heart, is even more into excess than myself, and seeing as the majority of my time is spent with him I'd like to be able to get around it without feeling the same temptation as him when we walk by some sweets or want takeout at one a.m.

Anyone care to be my health buddy?

PS - I'm excited, I'm planning a trip to NYC this summer. I'm setting a middle goal (as opposed to my final goal of 150 pounds) to try to get under 200 before then. Hey, if anything, it'll make the insane amount of walking I'll be doing easier, and I'll be able to fit in cuter clothes. If I make it in time for the cartoon museum's art festival I'll need the charisma of a cute girl to get my portfolio looked at, anyhow. ; P

    You can add me, if you'd like! I don't think I'm too far away from you (you were the only other person in the 18-29 age range within 0-25 miles of zip code 04092), either. :) I just joined yesterday, but I'm really enjoying the site.

    Wicked cool that you do a webcomic - my hubby is into comics of all sorts - what's yours about? :)

    Anyway, best of luck to you, and drop me a line if you'd like another buddy! :)

    Take care,

    YOU GO!! A real life buddy would be great. Everybody needs somebody that they can talk to or chat with. I hope that you find a great one! :)

    I'd love to try being your health buddy -- we can see how it goes, anyway. I'm not blogging yet. I have enough trouble keeping up with my blog about my animals!

    Will this be your first trip to NYC? I love the city. I grew up in upstate new york, but sadly live far way now. Well, not so sadly, really, I love where I live (and we may have to move back to NY, but that's another story), but I do miss getting to the city. It's been 6 years for me now.

    I'm apart of the 1 Day Challenge team and I love being apart of the challenge teams. They motivate me to keep my goals right in front of me at all times and give me the motivation to continue working out/eating right. As a new SP member myself, I know things can get difficult but I think you'll do fine. You can add me as a buddy if you'd like :). SP is a GREAT place to find health buddies, so you're in the right place! NYC sounds so fun! I would LOVE to go there, it sound be a good motivator for you to meet your midway goal.
