I was going to SparkMail Lifewalk and I see their page is set to private and offline. If you hover over the name it says Taking the Summer off, so hopefully will return in the Fall and we can thank them for setting this up for us.

The leader I replaced was LifeChanges and we have communicated with each other a couple of weeks ago.

Thanks Barbara!

I do have a co-leader and once everyone is settled in their daily lessons, leadership is not too overwhelming.

The other team I lead has 11,196 members. It is the SP Class of June 8-14,2014. Getting it off the ground was a lot of work, now it pretty much leads itself and I check in daily to see how folks are doing, award goodies once a week etc.

Susan,

I had no idea you lost 66 pounds...how amazing. More importantly, how amazing that you are able to have brought your husband home and can care for him. I am so sorry for what has happened and think you are a special person.

Leading a team especially one with 100 Day turnaround is a big task. I don't know if Lifechange always had a private Sparkpage or not, but I have to wonder if she became overwhelmed? I know you can do it, but make sure you totally enjoy it!

take care
barbara

Nice to meet you Mari! I stay pretty busy, but I was working 60-70 hour weeks plus visiting my DH in the nursing home another 30, so retirement and caregiving "almost" feels like a vacation!

Thank you, Susan, for stepping up to lead this team. Especially since you must be pretty busy. It sounds like the 100 Days program has been working really well for you. That's encouraging! I'm about half way through my first time.

Greetings! I just volunteered to become the new leader of this team. I am Susan, age 57, took a very early retirement so that my wheelchair bound spouse of almost 40 years, could come home from the nursing home. He fell at home June 25,2012 and suffered permanent brain damage, multiple surgeries, two bouts of pneumonia and 17 months later, he was finally rehabbed enough to return home.

I am on the site several times a day and would love to get to know all of the active members here a little better.

I am on day #206 of my journey, lost 66 pounds so far, on day #3 of the 100 days book and just finished the Friends with the Scale book.

Pretty much anything else you'd like to know is on my Spark Page.

Let's all do this emoticon more day at a time!

Onward & Downward!

Susan
