I need friends!

Wednesday, October 05, 2011

A few years ago, I quit smoking with the help of a website called quitnet.com. It was very helpful and I made quite a few friends there including one girl who quit on the same day as me and we have been friends ever since.

I was hoping that SP would do the same thing for me on my weight loss goals, but I'm finding it hard to find friends. Hopefully, I can figure out what I'm doing wrong and get a good group of friends for support.

    Blogging about it was a good idea.

    I will add you as a spark friend. Consider joining one or more spark teams too as there are many differert ones, and I bet you could find more than one which would be to your liking. WE canb do this, yes we will.

    I also made friends by joining teams, like the MN Fat Kickers!
    I will add you as a friend as well. You can look through my groups and my friends and see if there is anyone else you want to make contact with. Some Spark Friends come and go, others remain connected when they can, but with a group, you'll always find support.
    Keep Sparkin'

    I hear you loud and clear. It it hard for me, an extrovert. to live in a rural, small town. People in this small keep their friends family and grammar school friends. So I joined
    SparkPeople in hopes of making friends. It did not happen right away, but I now have one friend.

    I hope you will allow me to add you as a friend. It would be great to have another friend!!!!!!!!!

    I think on this site there are just so many people that its hard to connect with people but the good news is that once you find support, it is the best support ever. I am a 28 year old gal from Nebraska and I would be more than willing to be support for you. I also think you get to meet more people when you join teams and when you post blogs and read the blogs of others. Good luck girl and I will be adding you as a friend!

    I made friends by joining teams. I've lost touch with a lot of them but a lot of them are still there to support me after several years of being on Spark and moving from California to Texas. I added you as a friend.
