We met for a while but it was hard to get everyone together on a good time/day. Katelyn (BLUEYEDCALAMITY) started a separate, online Facebook group after that, you may want to message her here to ask about it.

Hi, apparently I missed all the posts about this meeting group going live. Is it still active? I would love to join a group like this and have weekly local meetings!

I won't be able to attend tonight. My mom was in the hospital for 2 days (Tuesday & Wednesday) and I'm just so far behind with everything at home.

I will keep up with the thread (I'm also registered on the LLU website) and hopefully will attend the next FTF get together.

Hello everyone!

It's finally that time! Our first meeting is scheduled! Here is the info:

Who: Losers Like Us weight loss group

What: Initial Meeting

Where: 100 Bonaventure Blvd. Weston, FL 33326

When: Thursday, June 23rd - 8pm

The first meeting will be relatively short, information about me and the projected future for the group, a little meet and greet, then I'll be there until 10pm doing weigh-ins and measurements. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO STAY AFTER YOUR WEIGH-IN IS DONE.


The meeting place is located in the gym-area of the St. Andrews at Weston apartment complex. The complex is on the east side of Bonaventure Blvd just north of Blatt Blvd and just south of SR-84. Once inside (automatic gate, no guard), pull straight forward into the parking lot in front of the rental center. Along the left side of the building is a sidewalk that leads to a set of stairs on the right hand side. This is the door to the gym area. I will be standing outside until 8:15pm to lead people in. If you arrive late and the door is locked, please knock loudly to be allowed in.

PLEASE BRING A YOGA/EXERCISE MAT! This is a large, open area with no seating so please bring a mat to sit on.


E-mail me at loserslikeus@live.com if you have any questions or if you get lost, and please visit our website - www.loserslikeus.webs.com - and subscribe for future info about meetings and events. Hope to see you all there!

Going through the messages today to decide on a time and place. Sorry to anyone who will have a bit of a drive, we're very spread out and I want to make sure it's a fair location. Will send out the website link when I have a finalized time/date for our first meeting!

All right, everyone! It's that time. I need everyone who wants to come to the meetings to please send a quick e-mail to loserslikeus@live.com with a photo, a short introduction, your location, and the best days/times for you to participate in meetings. Going to be building a website in the coming days for everyone to come together in one place for info.

If it's in the evening that would be great. Sawgrass is a bit of a trek for me because i am close to the beach but I'll give it a whirl!

I live in Plantation and would love to meet other Spark People and have a support system. I have a conference room in my office that can hold about 10-15 easily and is free for us to use in the evenings. It is just west of the Sawgrass Mall. Let me know if you want to use this. I will go to your facebook page also. On facebook I am Ruth Norman Milstein.
Great idea!emoticon

I think this is great! I've been half tempted to hire a personal trainer just so I could get support, because that's what I need the most. Doesn't help when none of your friends share your healthy lifestyle.

Anywho, I'm in Pompano, which seems to be the exact opposite side of Broward as everyone else...

I really like the idea too. Depending on location and day/time I would be interested in participating. It would be great to meet some fellow Sparkers and get some support without having to shell out $15.00 per week for a WW meeting.

Anyone interested in joining a healthy weight loss support group? Been running one online successfully for 5 months and I'd love to have a local group to meet in person. Let me know if you're interested! Will be run somewhat like Weight Watchers, but using SparkPeople, group discussions and group weigh-ins/measurements (private weigh-ins can be done, of course).

And it's free! Please respond to the thread, send me a private message, or email me at katek5487@yahoo.com if you'd be interested. Broward County only (unless you're willing to travel at least once a week).

Thanks!
