I would like to start a group where every member is living in a different country. We can help and support each other and perhaps learn some fun facts about new places. I would like to keep the group small so everyone can really get to know each other. Please join if your country isn't represented yet AND you can/will post at least 3 times a week to give and get support.
I will start a thread each week with a challenge and goals.
Seeing that I started the group I will intruduce myself. My name is Marlies and I am representing Switzerland. I lost 25 kilos( 60 pounds) last year but have gained some of it back. This time I want to get to my goal weight and stay there.
My weight this morning was 89.4 kilos
This sounds fun I would be representing USA. Let me know if you already have someone from the USA yet.
Hey I'm Canadian. Sounds like a good idea. I've been struggling with motivation. Maybe this will help. Didn't weigh in this morning but need to lose 15-20lbs.
Hey, I'll represent Germany since this is my home now (even though I'm American)! I am too excited! Wow, you lost that much weight?! Was it a change of lifestyle or counting calories and exercising?
Happy to see so many replies. I will leave the group open for another day to see what other countries might want to join.
Keegan you were the first from the USA to respond so you are team USA.
Sarah hope the group can help with motivation, I don't know if you are competitive but I was thinking about prizes for reached goals.
Just me here thanks for joining the group. I lost the 25 kilos by weighing all my food and logging everything I ate. I only ate (most of the time) healthy food. I also started walking about 10 hours a week.
(well northern ireland to be specific, and if the south is taken?!!!)
My name is Mar--I weighed 128 pounds today
If you still have some space for another member,I am in.
My computer is acting funny today maybe I will get this message typed before I get kicked offline.
Just weighed this morning after a week of diet and exercise. I hear however that most of the weight lossed is water weight. It still feels good seeing smaller numbers on the scale. I still have a long way to go; 10-26-09 when I started this lifesyle change. I weighed 350 lb at 6'5". Today 11-02-09 I weighed 335, so I guess I am going in the right direction. Maybe this will get easier soon I hope.
Just thought I should warn everyone I am an aweful typist and worse at spelling/grammer. I hope everyone can make out what I am saying.
thanks KG-S ! there was me having a gd day lost 5lbs - :(
