Hi and welcome to the Teachers Learning to Lose team! Losing 30 lbs and only gaining 4 back is quite an accomplishment! Maintaining is a bugaboo for all of us and something I worry about. I don't think I will be able to if I don't log my food and fitness. After reading your page, I will definitely keep it up long after I reach my final goal! That is the really great thing about this site, you learn so much from other members. You will love our team, it is an active supportive group. Come on over and get to know us! 3142 days ago
Hello! I wanted to welcome you to the Teachers Learning to Lose SparkTeam! We are so happy to have you here! I hope this team serves as an encouragement and a support for you as you continue on your journey. Please take a few minutes and check out our forums and introduce yourself to the team. Be sure to check out our January Newsletter, which will tell you what is currently happening in our team. Also, take the "getting to know you survey." Its a great way for people to get to know you. There are wonderful people here. This group is a great place to be. Let me know if there is anything I can do for you!
We have a program in the Teachers Learning to Lose team called "Accountability Partners." We pair people up with someone else in the team who they will have something in common with. This team and SparkPeople.com as a whole is very large, and can be rather overwhelming. Having an accountability partner really helps you connect. It's a great way to have constant support, motivation, and encouragement from another team member. If you're interested, just SparkMail me and let me know.
I look forward to getting to know you! Have a fabulous day!
