    It takes a while to get a team going. Members come and go, but there are always some stable ones.
    Don't give up.

    some teams are really quiet. I don't know if that is a good thing or not. In one way, we hope that people are spending more time moving and grooving and exercising instead of sitting in front of the computer, but you miss the chit-chat of the team. I am the administrator of two...that is how I would like to think anyway. I post, and keep an eye on things, but pretty much leave things be. I rather see the weight loss totals go up as a collective whole. And be here only when someone hits a snag.

    So don't feel alone, know that you are in good company... we're watching and we're here if you need us. emoticon

    I hear you. Just now when I huddled on the Girlies Ditching 100 pounds I was the only one who's Huddled today, and it's already 1:00Pm Pacific time--yet I'm seeing they did post blogs (an individual activity). People don't realize how important the team Huddles are when it comes to other members seeking support, and it's an easy thing to do (I have 20 teams and it takes me 2 minutes to click a "let's go team" on all of them). After I log my nutrition, the first thing I do is check the huddles to see if someone hit the "I need support" button, then I check the team scroll, which is how I saw your blog. Hang in there, and if you'll post more on the Girlies team, I will too.

    Hang in there. My team has 302 members and only a few participate in the challenges. You will get some participation eventually... they'll wake up when spring arrives and say, "Hey, I've got to do something!"
    Best wishes!

    I've been noticing on a few of the teams that I'm on that I'm the most active member. When I huddle in the group and the activity scroll goes by, I see 90% my blogs and comments. What's up with that?? Not feeling very much like a team. But then there are those few teams that are a team. Keep up with it and you'll have joiners. I'm gonna check out your team now and see if it's something I'd be interested in. Veg juice, not so sure about though. LOL.

    Do not give up on other team members, they probably will join in. Remember you are doing something great for yourself by doing the challenge.

    I'm feeling a bit of the same disappointment. I started a Team almost a month ago and even sent out a whole bunch of personal invitations a few days ago, so far to no response. As other posters here have said, by being active on our own Team, we make progress for ourselves if for no one else. And there's also the very real likelihood that plenty of non-participators are reading what you're posting and huddling and are benefiting without your knowledge, and isn't that the real goal in establishing a Team--to benefit others in some way? If you like your team, stick with it; if you don't like it yourself any more, then it's probably time to close it and look for another one you can like.

    Just keep plugging along. I took over a team that was pretty quiet, but I just kept posting. Eventually more joined in and now we actually have a steady stream. It just takes time.

    I can understand your disappointment; I am team leader of 3 small teams that are not very active. I don't know if that is a reflection on my leadership skills or what. Hang in there. As others have commented, focus on what good things you are doing for yourself.

    I am feeling the same way you are...with some of the teams that I am co-leading.

    Hang in there....I just came to join you on your team.

    Together, we CAN & WILL do it!

    Hugs,

    Hey, if anything you're staying strong doing it yourself. You'll find more team members. I know how you feel. I started a team (not on Spark) for March for Babies a walk for March of Dimes I'm doing in honor of my nephew who passed away last year, and none of my friends have donated or even responded to my email telling them about it. I feel extrememly dissappointed because I don't think I'm going to reach my donations goal. Plus I wrote a blog about it here and nothing. It's discouraging, but if you like what you're doing, keeping going and like minded people will join you.
