I am working on weight loss and general health improvement. I want to alleviate my osteoarthritis and high blood pressure, lower my cholesterol count and risk of a cancer recurrence, sleep better, reduce stress, be able to buy clothes that fit--just to be healthier and more confident all around.

JUST DO IT!
PLAN AHEAD!
NO MORE EXCUSES!
STOP, THINK, TALK TO YOURSELF.

Thank you! I agree, a small support group might be motivating.

Hmm, you know, I might be interested. I found I spent more time socializing than meeting challenges with the big group, but maybe I would feel more accountable with a small one. Thanks! Please do keep me in mind.
And enjoy your weekend. I hope your snow (as well as ours) is done for a few months!

The challenge group sounds like fun, and like four people would be a more manageable group for support. Does it work in time segments, like Wave Runners?

I hope the next few weeks are less stressful than you are expecting! I think we were Wave Runners together? Or else there was another challenge team I participated in, but I don't remember the name. I never did BLC. What's camp wannabefit?
