Weight Loss Support - Question

Post by jessicabree on Wed Jan 05, 2011 9:42 pm

so what are you girls interested in doing for a Weight Loss/Fitness challenge?

Just chit chat and be supportive?
Do a Biggest Loser style challenge with a prize (we all pay pal in $5 or whatever)
Something else?

I just need the support and the accountability factor.

So for accountability do you want something specific? Like a weigh-in/check-in day where we all share our weight loss or progress towards whatever personal goal we each have?

I am more wanting support. I think with BL's in the past if someone fell off the wagon they just got discouraged because they were no longer in the running. I would rather do something where if someone has a bad week we are here for them to pick them up and encourage them to keep going.

for me, the thing that works is when I report to someone with the weight. It does not have to have a prize at the end. But if I know *someone* is going to see what my weight is, it keeps me more accountable.

We can do that. Those that WANT to give their weight to me can, and those that want to give their weight loss to me can etc. I say its up to you?

I am not skinny girl myself so if I do it I figure y'all shouldn't be too worried about giving me your weight.

But I say you have to send me something each week... your weight OR weight change? Does that work.

I think that would be great! For me, it's just the support. If I'm having a bad day (or week), the encouragement from others doing the same thing helps. Tips and advice also. If someone has a question, they can post and others can help. Like what to eat at a restaurant, party situations, etc. Also we can celebrate everyone's successes no matter how big or small. I know for me skipping the cake at a birthday party would be a huge success.

Maybe more like a "what did you do this week to reach your goals? check in here!" and then if someone needs to cry, we can console and if someone rocked it, we can cheer....???

I'm in for this, definitely. I've been completely stuck on a plateau for about 4 months now... Beyond aggravating! This might help the scale move down some Very Happy

We can just do an informal check in but I personally will post my weight change each week. I need the number to keep me honest. But that is me Smile

Love all the ideas!

Im in as well. I need a real # to keep me accountable (I actually track mine daily because it works better for me)

For those of us doing WW online do we want to "friend" each other?

I was thinking we could do check-in's on Fridays? But I know people have WI different days.

Not everyone wants to do weight or weight change, but for those that do you can either just share your weight change with the group or with me if you like. Or not at all if you prefer not to. But I know Mara and I are both focused on weight change.
