DAY#11 - Weight Room
In the past 10 days I have received a few dozen emails and messages. All of them have been very encouraging. The outpouring of love and support has been crazy. I could not ask for better friends & fans. ;)
Besides encouragement, the other theme that has run through many of the messages is that the sender is in the same boat as me. Maybe they do not weigh as much and maybe they started at a different time but they are in the same boat as I am. So for the last few days I have been thinking about how we can all help each other out.
My idea is this: I started a small discussion board on my website. I am calling it the weight room. The purpose of the weight room is for people who are in the process of loosing or trying to maintain their weight loss and are looking for an accountability group to share with. If this fits your needs and you want to join a group like this. Feel free to join the Weight Room
. The site requires registration. You can not be a voyeur. Only members can read and post.
Why didn't I do this on Facebook? Some people have admitted to me that they are not interested in sharing their weight struggle with the world and I can respect that. Others do not trust Facebook, and I can understand that too. So the 'Weight Room' is owned and operated by me and not some giant internet soul sucking corporation.
My goal is for it to be a safe place for people who want to hold each other accountable. No skinny, 'I can eat whatever I want and not get fat' people allowed :)
Tomorrow I weigh in. I am excited!
