Adding elements of support...
Thursday, October 07, 2010
At work an email went out a few weeks ago: Would anyone be interested in joining a WW at Work program? I thought, while I have Sparkpeople for many of my needs, it might be good to add a level of support and do the WW at Work program, so I signed up. I had done WW in the past, and I knew that I could use my Sparkpeople tools and follow the Momentum program without too much difficulty. I was really hoping for increased support from my coworkers.
What a good decision! My co-workers are great. It was wonderful just seeing how many of us were there for that first meeting, and now that we know we are all doing this together, we cheer each other on in our good choices, get together for lunchtime activity, and send emails of encouragement! Even if we don't keep the program up after the 10 weeks, we now know who each other are and can continue to support each other.
Having both the online world of Sparkpeople and the face-to-face world in my office for support is making a difference to me!
