Iím starting a new Meetup.com group, called ďWeight loss for FunĒ. 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 havenít had much luck. Either the groups donít show or they aren't exactly what Iím 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 whoís lost the most, wins the pot.
Thatís a great motivator, but itís 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 itís optional. (so people donít feel like they canít come if they've had a bad month.)
