Hi, I'm Rosy, and I haven't been by in a while. I hope we can get this board going, it would be really great to have an active local team. I will be checking in and posting as I can to help this along.

Hello Bill! It's been a while. I have to admit I have been slacking in my comments. I have just been logging on to remind me to eat right and drink water. I am going to do better!

Tappanga, I saw your idea and love it! I am ready! :)

Today is the best day to begin making changes for yourself and others both inside and out!

I agree, BILLTMAN, but I think it's a double edged sword. Until we become more active on the board and get to know each other a little better, I don't see anyone diving as deeply into each other's personal journey.

I'm going to start another thread and see if it will help with the problems you see. It will be baby steps, so don't fault us if it doesn't take off or doesn't work like you want. But I think if we all keep it going, it will get us to what you've suggested.

Thanks for the input!

In order for me to be interested in checking in more often I need for there to be some activity. I need to know that team members are checking in and caring about what is going on with other team members. What are they eating... How is the fitness going... Are you loosing weight, maintaining, gaining...Do you need moral support. All the things that make a community work.
So, to answer your questions:

1. What do you think would fire up this team?
Answer: Re-establish community.
2. What fires you up?
Answer: Discuss things that are important to one another:
a. Weight loss
b. Exercise
c. Diet, menus, cooking ideas...
d. How's your life going? etc.
3. What would make you check in a little more?
Answer: Team activity, community, caring people interacting with one another. Just knowing that someone else is here, that they care and that they are going through some of the same things we all are, who want to share ideas and receive ideas.

Bill

Thanks for the questions...answers are below:

What do you think would fire up this team? A little competition :)

What fires you up? A little competition :)

What would make you check in a little more? A little competition :)

Well, that answer seemed appropriate for them all but I believe that when we challenge others and get some competition involved, the team would get fired up!

And...ROLL TIDE! :)

Today is the best day to begin making changes for yourself and others both inside and out!

I have been searching for a partner for quite some time now; I have been on and off for seven years now as it relates to fitness.

As for your inquiry on our motivations, mine is as follows, from greatest to least:

1. I will look better, and because of this it will be easier for me to make a good first impression.

2. I will have more energy.

3. I will feel lighter (because I will be lighter!).

I believe, if everyone participates in these posts, it would be a good idea to start exercise sessions on Skype; some of us need more than a forum or a chat to advance, however, this is where it starts.

Hi all! First, I'd like to apologize for not being around as much as I should. I hope to change that.

Second, I noticed there isn't much activity in this group, so I'm asking for ideas/suggestions.

What do you think would fire up this team? What fires you up? What would make you check in a little more?

Thanks in advance!
