Today is the day get out your scales get out your tape measures whatever you wanna use to measure yourself as YOUR starting point

Lets measure weigh in we will do this once a month officially to see how far we have come

Post if you want to IF others on the board object to us posting this stuff here that is fine we can do e-mail format which I personally would prefer

WE as a group have a goal to loose weight safely AND frugally using things around our house SO if it is not in your budget to buy weight equiptment to work out NOT a problem go for a walk there will be no buying of special foods but learning together how we can cook foods we like in a healthier leaner way SO there will be no need to go and buy Dr Phils weight loss bars (LOL)

I posted this in the introduction thread because it is our introduction

I personally think that we could keep the board updated with our progress but keep the main support stuff in e-mail

ANYONE can join us at any time

SO weight loss buddies send me your e-mail addresses I tried to e-mail stacy but it got bounced back to me for some reason I bet I will be able to respond to any e-mails you send

SO LETS GO dust off those old work out equiptment things put on some music today and dance drink some water and remember slow and steady wins the race!!

Take care

I still like the idea of Y! Groups since it's a board and email together. :)

Before I had seen the poll I had made a group and was going to post the idea. I'm trying to send you my email addy but it came back once. I'm trying again.

It's great you guys are branching out in "off-topic" groups. It makes me so glad to see great comradery on the board.


One word of caution, if you don't mind though. I remember a while back that there was concern about too much emphasis on weight loss on a non-weight loss board. It can be a very sensitive subject for anyone who has dealt with an eating disorder, for example. So let's keep the updates in the OT section. Perhaps the progress details (numbers, specifically) could be shared within your email group. The ideas, recipes and stuff like that would be great subject matter for the board, though.


I might be joining you all soon, too! This "baby weight" is getting annoying. ;-)

I sent you an email with my email address. I'll do the weigh-in, measurements, etc. tonight. Great idea! I have no extra money for gym memberships or equipment, special food bars/drinks/etc. so this is a perfect group for me!

Hi sorry I've been MIA for a couple of days. My computer was unplugged etc. We are moving the den upstairs, etc. I haven't taken any measurements yet. Did we decide on a format? Email or boards? I'll check back later today. Jennifer
