I’m starting a new Meetup.com group, called “Weight loss for Fun”. The inspiration for my little group came when I was looking on Meetup for groups that will help me meet new people who are also interested in being active and healthy.
So far I haven’t had much luck. Either the groups don’t show or they aren't exactly what I’m looking for.
I found one group that looked perfect. They are a group trying to lose weight so they meet each month, hang out, and have a weigh in. But they require that everyone pay $30 into a pot and the person who’s lost the most, wins the pot.
That’s a great motivator, but it’s way too much money for me to spend each month.
So I decided to make my own group. Pretty much the same idea, but you put a single dollar in the pot and it’s optional. (so people don’t feel like they can’t come if they've had a bad month.)
