First week with BL LiMeS

Wednesday, July 18, 2012

Half way through a challenge I have joined a team that probably has something to do with the biggest loser idea... I don´t quite get it but it does not matter, my reason for wanting to be there was that a Spark Friend I really like pronounced that she would focus on being active there and since it was a private team I had to ask to join to stay in contact.

The team has triggered my comepetio instincts, this week I have doubled my execise minutes which is good. I have also lost one kilo which is even better although I don´t do well with weighing, it triggers my obsessive behaviour.

I have some sort of goal with this - I joined too late to be part of the "official" team but as I understand it, if I saty on and participate dutifully, I might be an offical member when winter challenge comes along. If I haven´t fallen of the wagon by then of course. But for the moment it feels good to be a specific member of a team with a mission!

    This is the first team I have genuinely participated on since joining 2 years ago. I think I did not really understand or take time to get on board with the other teams I joined. But they were quite large and honestly, did not seem to have the clear drive and focus that I have found on this team toward my goals. Again, this may be my fault and not theirs. Anyway, I am so happy that I am on the BL Lime team. I have seen much progress this summer and they are a very friendly, caring bunch!
    I hope you find a home here too!

    I am glad to have you with us LIMES !
    These women are great and the support is amazing
    I had been afraid to join for a while because I have a real problem with people knowing my weight (the number really bothered me - this stims from life of abuse about my size. Kids can be so mean - not to mention that family isn't the nicest either). But the support I have gotten from Spark People has helped me get over this phobia.
    Best of luck to you on this journey

    For some reason I don't do well with the team challenges on here. I've tried some, did ok for a while, but then fizzled out. I really think I have ADHD (without the H). Now I've accepted how I am, so don't even begin any challenges. I am really glad to hear how this team challenge is working for you.

    good for you! i joined the summer 5% challenge for the same reason - it feels good to be part of something, and working with a team. it's somehow more than just doing it for yourself when you have to meet the minutes or whatever is being counted in the challenge. emoticon
