    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    Your candle light's bright.
    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You shine bright through the night.

    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You sit on the porch.
    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You're a decorative torch.

    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    Your teeth so messed up,
    As you smile at the kids,
    As cute as a buttercup.

    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You bring me much joy.
    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You make the children overjoyed.

    Pumpkin, oh Pumpkin,
    You're really a Jack-O'-Lantern.

    Having an accountability system, such as a bootcamp or challenge group, Spark friends/buddy, is a fun and supportive way to stay positive and accountable to your goals. It’s a way to have daily or weekly check-ins, talk about nutrition and portion control, discuss tips, recipes and so much more! Studies show that having an accountability system or an accountability partner greatly increases the chances of one’s success. In fact, people are 65% more likely to reach their goals if they have an accountability system. Having friends who have similar dreams and goals as you is a big motivator. My fit friends helped push me closer to my goals, inspired me to push myself when I wanted to quit, and constantly lifted me up.
