Hi, I'm Evelyn and I'm also in surrey. Only joined today so a raw beginner. Have a lot of weight to loose and could also do with a buddy to help motivation and commitment.

Weakness hides in a culture like the rain hides in the sun. If one takes comfort in only the sunshine, you will not be prepared to face the threat of rain. Being prepared is essential. (Kanna Hirokazu, officer, Japanese navy, talking about karate)

Try finding a team that is geographically local to your area & joining in with them. We in the UK Midlands Team have a great network and regularly organise get-togethers.

Just go into Community, Spark Teams, Geographic Locations, United Kingdom.

Happy Sparking,
Jude xx

I know this is a little off thread but does anyone know how I can find members close to me? The search facility only allows entry search via Zip code and when I enter my post code it obviously doesn't accept/ recognise it.

Thanks.

hi Chris (et al) -- I am near Hinckley, about 10-12 miles SW of Leicester itself.

I have lived in Leics for nearly 6 yrs now, arriving from West Coast USA. Such a beautiful county!!!

Peterborough is a few hrs away, isn't it? And Melton Mowbray -- ahh yes, who doesn't know of that place? :)

Hi Debra, whereabouts in Leicestershire are you?
I now live in Peterborough and go over to Leicestershire. I am originally from Thurnby village and before moving to Peterborough, lived in Melton Mowbray for 12 years or so.
If you or anyone want to meet up sometime, we'll arrange something.
Take care,
Chris.

hi, from Leicestershire!

Anyone within a reasonable distance to meet up now and then?

Or even for a chat, when distance is not an issue -- like for email, phone calls, etc...?

Guess I am lonely :(

Hi Liz, that's great! I started a new topic "Manchester" to see who we can attract in the area. Let's try to keep in touch and support each other on our Spark plans. It would be good to organise a ramble. I live in ideal walking country here...
I am 5'4 and my ideal goal weight is 8st3. I am currently around 9st though I was 8st 10 for a month this summer and that was great. I recently put some back on. I feel Ok about my weight right now, clearly not overweight but I'm going to see if I can keep inching down a little...

Hi Llana

You have made a steady progress to your goal it looks similar to mine.

We have a few people living locally I would be wiling to travel few miles to meet or maybe meet for a local ramble or something active?
