If there are people that you are not friends with in the group and you're interested in having more friends...might I suggest sending out friend requests. Like I've said before...the more support the better!

Over the next few days, I think I'm going to try to pair people up so they can help push each other. I will post daily reminders (the best I can) to try and help people...but...I can't do it all. I have enough trouble being accountable for myself. If we have small teams, or pairs, then you'll all have someone to check in on and who will also check in and make sure you're on track! We want 2015 to be the year that we succeed!!! We can and will do this!

    I vote for teams instead of pairs. That way if someone drops off the face of the earth (like we've all seen in groups before), no one is left hanging. Just my 2 cents ...

    I like the idea of pairs or small groups.... it is much easier to keep track of a few and not get yourself lost in the masses!

    Holy hell, I finally found the group...Yay. Ok, I like the idea of small groups cuz I agree with Amy...we don't want anyone left stranded; but then again, too many are hard to keep up with. Thanks Gret!

    Is there any way to search for the group, or is it invite only?

    Ok if you all want small groups then you'd better do some recruiting!!! We're a very small group right now!

    I also like the ideas of small groups. Then you have a few people to work with and its easier to keep these people accountable.

    We've had quite a few new recruits join us. I am NOT friends with everyone who is in and we've had a few people join from the main group page. I'm going to do my best to set up groups on Sunday...I'll see how many people we have at the time and figure out how many teams to set up. I think it's best to have a buddy system so we can help push each other. This challenge is for the whole year...we're not just doing a one month challenge here...so building our support system and friends is very important!!! We've got this!
