Thank you all. I will definitely be interested in checking out the challenges. I will be traveling out of the country and will be back on the 25th. I'll check back to see what the challenge will be. How fun!

If you would like a little incentive, we run a season-long Challenge here most seasons (next one is Lammas to Samhain). While our levels of participation vary from Challenge to Challenge, we score points for weight lost (10 per pound), stength exercises, cardio exercises, support of other team members (1 point for each message), and, if your other points add up to 15 or more, you can include the points of your Login Spin. We have had winners score anywhere from 250 to 1500 points, depending on how long the Challenge is (some run through two seasons) and how enthusiastic the participants are, and, should sufficient number of people complete the Challenge, awards are given.
Look down the list to the Challenge and Motivation forum, and wait for the next Challenge to be announced. All members are welcome.
I overcame my spiritual obesity, now for the physical!
Hi there. Like many people I am not new to trying to lose weight. Over the years I've lost and gained more than I want remember. Now I am the heaviest I have ever been and realizing this must stop. I remember saying by the time I'm 30 I will be slim and feeling great. Instead I went deeper into depression and gained what I wanted to lose. Now closing in on my 40th birthday I have not changed in the way I wanted to.
At this point in my life I am in a place mentally that feels wonderful and I love where my journey has taken me. I am looking forward to my re-commitment of mindful weight loss and to (re)discover my authentic self along the way.
This journey doesnít have to be as hard as I have made it in the past. Iím looking forward to sharing my journey with like-minded people and to grow with you all as well. This is going to be a wonderful experience.
