Mike is right about being on the computer in nice weather. I haven't spent much time at all on-line except during bad weather. We've had a lot of storms this summer. The past 2 days have been pretty bad - lightning, more rain, etc. Yesterday I drove to my club during a whopper of a storm to register for a Feldenkrais Method class that starts in a couple of weeks. I am really anxious to learn the techniques and hope they will help me get past the knee pain that thwarts most of my exercise attempts. Here's some info about the Feldenkrais Method www.feldenkrais.com/method/the_felde

I feel like such a slacker!!!! I'll be sure to monitor my groups more closely. Sometimes, with going out of town to see relatives or with my own health issues, it's easy to overlook checking in and making sure that things are running smoothly.

This group is still active for sure!!! However, it's only as active as all of us make it and contribute to it. I noticed the membership numbers going up and this is a good sign- more vegans out there and more people joining SP!

I just posted in the huddle and I'll be touching base more often. Again, sorry about the delay. I'm going to be going away next weekend, just so you know in advance, however will try to check in from my in-law's place.

I agree with that, but this time of year is bad for groups anywhere, who wants to be on the computer when it is so nice

I would like to see more activity, too. I left this team and just rejoined. It would be nice to have some good "conversations" about slimming down, good exercises, etc. There are several teams that focus on food, but a focus on the other parts of getting healthy and maintaining would be most welcome.

I found that eating healthy, low fat and vegan works the best for me. This team is not very active but I am willing to join in discussions if we can try to have more activity here.
