I am in a 6 month bet to lose 10% of my weight. I currently just passed the 5 month mark, on track. I am doing this bet with a Spark Friend, whom I've never met, but email daily. Once the 6 month weigh in is done, OUR reward is to meet each other in St Louis! Neither of us are from STL, I am from WI and she is from KY. I just bought my plane ticket yesterday for our meeting. No going back! I'm all in! This was the best motivation for both of us! Our 10% loss is by no means the end of our weight loss and we even plan on attending a gym on our trip to STL. I thank SP for having groups like the Accountability Partnership Group, where I met my Spark Friend. Without that, I wouldn't be as far along as I am now. She has helped and supported me for about a year now and vice-versa. We feel like we already know each other and continue to give each other ideas when the chips are down and give positive feedback on great things that we've done.
