Never let success go to your head, and never let failure go to your heart.

Make time, or make excuses. The choice is yours.

Inaction breeds doubt and fear. Action breeds confidence and courage. If you want to conquer fear, do not sit home and think about it. Go out and get busy.

1. Are you new to the 5% Challenges? If so - GREAT ... take a look at our L-O-N-G history on SP and use some of the people that have posted here to connect with!

I'm not new
2. Have you been a member of the 5% Challenges for some time? If so, how long?

I did my first challenge in the spring of 2016 and have done every one since except for the summer 2019 when I took a break for various reasons.

3. Finally - and I think the most fun part of this is to find out what team(s) you have been on while you have traveled with us!

I picked 'Any Team is Great' when I did my first challenge because I really didn't know who to pick! I landed on the Awesome A's and have never left! I've been an EL on the team for just over a year now.

SPECIFIC: , Exercise every day, drink more water and Journal food intake. Keep busy.
MEASURABLE: journal water and food intake every day. Write down fitness minutes at the end of each day.
ACHIEVABLE; I will go to the gym 3 days so I can increase my fitness and strength. Two days a week I can walk or bike ride. I can slowly manage my food and water intake. Keep busy through the day so I can't emotional eat.
RELEVENT: To increase my fitness level and stay healthy.

I've been a Shooting Star. When you look to join a team, some sound very intense with the amount of work needed. And some seem very casual. This one looked just right! Sometimes, with my schedule I still cannot keep up, but at least it challenges me. I really liked the team and the members.

So that's four challenges a year times eight = 32, maybe, just not sure any more emoticon

1. Are you new to 5% Challenges?
NO. I’ve been doing them for years.

2. Have you been a member of the 5% Challenges for some time?
YES. I don’t remember how long!

3. Finally - and I think the most fun part of this is to find out what team(s) you have been on while you have traveled with us!

I think I started with the Teddy Bears, but I wasn’t committed. I was TERRIBLE the first 2 or 3 challenges. I’d stop posting and ghost the leaders. I don’t know why, but they kept trying to reach me. I was offered to be a member on a new team, The Awesome As. It was pieced together from fragments of other teams and people like me.

The 5% challenge leaders offered UNCONDITIONAL SUPPORT and invited me to try again. That kindness motivated me, and I finally went through a whole challenge... lousy numbers, but I posted until the end and stayed for the next season. I’ve been struggling along ever since, a loyal Awesome A!

I did two or three seasons of challenges with the Spirited Underdawgs emoticon (They're pawesome! Woof!) a few years ago, and I'm hoping to get back on that team again for Spring Challenge. This is one of the best communities I've been part of here on Spark, and I love the support and comradery! Really glad to be back again. :)

1. Are you new to the 5% Challenges? If so - GREAT ... take a look at our L-O-N-G history on SP and use some of the people that have posted here to connect with!

no, I am not new.

2. Have you been a member of the 5% Challenges for some time? If so, how long?

I think I have been a member of the 5% challenges for about a year and a half, not really sure. I even participated after I had meniscus knee surgery last year and fractured my other knee late in the year, but I still participated.

3. Finally - and I think the most fun part of this is to find out what team(s) you have been on while you have traveled with us!

I started on the Firecrackers team and have been with them the whole time. I picked them because of their name and a flower that I use during a retreat at church, that I say it looks like a firecracker, so I figured the Firecrackers name was perfect for me!

2. Have you been a member of the 5% Challenges for some time? If so, how long? Several years off and on.

Good Morning! I thought it would be fun to see what our 5% Challenge Community 'History' really looks like. Many, MANY of us have been with the 5% Challenges since the beginning. @KALISWALKER can confirm, but - I believe that it was this time of year in 2010 that the Challenges actually began.

So here goes:

No I have done a several challenges

Only Casual Travelers because they are the least competitive of the bunch . I don't always have time to post every day and they are great about that. A lot of the same folks show up and they are fun and nice to travel with :)

I think that I have been doing the challenges 6 or seven times. With a break in between.

2. Have you been a member of the 5% Challenges for some time? If so, how long? Several years.

3. Finally - and I think the most fun part of this is to find out what team(s) you have been on while you have traveled with us!
When I started I was on the Cloverleaf team. I did three or four challenges with them. Had a lot of fun but was not very successful. I have now been with the Shooting Stars team. I think that this is at least my third but maybe my fourth challenge. In the winter challenge I signed up to maintain but actually lost 4 pounds. The two before that I lost my 5%. The Shooting Stars are an awesome team, a lot of fun, very active and super SUPPORTIVE,

I have been on the Walkers, Joggers, Runners and Gadgeters team and even though we don't fair so well in the challenges we are a fun group. Everyone is so supportive and the team leaders are awesome. They go above and beyond to keep everyone engaged and involved.

Hello--I'm Rae--from Michigan--didn't quite make it onto the Fall 2018 tour, but hung around the airport that whole season, learning the travel operation, and was ready to travel come Winter 2019! I chose 'any team will do' after trying to figure out where I'd fit best--couldn't decide--so I like to think, the Rowdy Rebels chose me! Stayed with them, every challenge since, because it's nice to get to know a group of friends--plus, every season, we get new people, some stay on, some don't. I think, my travels with the 5% keep me honest, with myself and my personal challenge to get healthy--without them, I think I would slip quickly back to old patterns! This is the longest 'streak' of any healthy Habbits, in my life--and I'm pretty old! Thank you Sparkpeople, and 5%!

Hi, I'm Mica. I first joined the 5% Challenge in the Fall of 2010 . I don't remember my first team. I've participated off and on, and I've been on a few different teams in the past, but have mostly been a Firecracker for probably 5 years. I'm currently a WL for the Firecrackers team.

I believe the spring Challenge will be my 9th, always a Weight Warrior!!!! I am in maintenance but I use the challenges as a time to focus on both nutrition and fitness, tracking both.

I'll start: My name is Heidi (HICIM705) and I am one of the Overall Challenge Co-Leaders. My role is EL. I started in the 5% challenges back in 2010 (during the first year), but didn't hear about the Challenges until they began. I was placed on a waitlist for the 'next' Challenge. There were a group of us and we decided that while we were waiting for the next Challenge to begin, we would get to know one another and follow along. Our group was called the 'Overflow Campers'. Once the next Challenge was to begin, the entire group got along so well that we asked to be able to stay together as a team and from the Overflow Campers, the Firecracker Team was started ~ the reason for the name was that the Challenge started around the 4th of July ~ Independence Day for the USA.

I've been a Firecracker for most rounds. I can't remember exactly when I became an Overall Leader of the 5% Challenges ~ and I remember doing a round or two with another team (a team that may have had a name change or may have been rolled into another team). I'm currently a WL for the Shooting Stars Team ~ they were looking for some help and have been with this team since Fall, 2020.

Who else wants to share?
