Got a special pin/badge from a special team

Saturday, February 27, 2021

Well I have been an extra leader for the Shooting Stars Team for the 5% Seasonal Challenges and it has been a wonderful experience! I have virtually met so many great and wonderful people! It's like a small family or community which we all need in these times of the pandemic. Which might explain why I work so hard actually or I just consider it fun; not sure. Janey, put it this way we are helping people get healthy and I never thought of it in that perspective. Thank you Janey! So true! So yesterday I got a reward for my effort and wonderful comments from the leader of the team, Barb! I really was touched and almost cried when I saw it. Here are her comments that I copied and pasted and the pin/badge I got! So grateful and thank you!

"I found this beautiful spot along the trail it was just perfect for this. I have a special presentation today for a very special Star. She has gone above and beyond over and over again. Sarah is one of our newest leaders and is backup to our motivation leader Janey. She has been doing a wonderful job at this. This Week Nancy has been out with electrical and internet issues and Sarah just stepped right in and started filling in for Nancy doing the Questions of the Day for her until she is able to return. Way to go Sarah!! I appreciate everything you have done Sarah!!! Great job!!

It is with great honor I present Sarah (SLBROOKS3) with the "Shoot for the Stars" Pin for Service Above and Beyond."

So if you are interested in doing something to lose weight and gain friends you may consider joining the seasonal challenges we do here on Spark. The Winter Challenge is ending on March 6th and after that you will be able to sign up for a Spring Challenge. Not yet though but if you join the Winter Team now, you will get information for the Spring! Here is a link to the Winter 5% Community Challenge Team:


There is some work involved. You have to exercise weekly and have a certain amount of minutes to contribute. You also have to record your weight weekly! That's it though, you do what you want after that! Contribute where you want and all! It's all up to you! Our health is in our own hands!

Take care and have a great weekend!

    Just ran across this blog. You so much deserve this award. You have gone above and beyond your duties and responsibilities. I appreciate you so very much. You have added to my enjoyment of our team. I have been on other challenge teams, but this is the best. I plan on signing up again for Spring.

    Thank you for your kind words of sympathy. I only occasionally have feelings of missing my father. It has been so long, 52 years, you’d think that a person would get past it. My sister who was 2 years older than me used to suffer the loss of our father something fierce. I thank the Lord that she is in heaven now and no longer suffers. (She had a lot of physical problems too.) Anyway, I digress. Thank you for being you. emoticon

    YOUR ARE A SPECIAL SHINING STAR, You have gifted me Love and Light through out these weeks since i met you. THANK YOU! THANK YOU for your support and offer of friendship.

    I will look up the books you suggested. My survival book is "The Power of Now" it is how I have survived life's sideways slide. By bringing myself and thought to the NOW as often as they want to slip off into the deep end, or negative patterns..

    Thank you for being YOU!
