Okay, I'm curious! I've never been part of a weight loss group and have no idea how it works. Does everyone follow the same basic diet plan or does everyone go with what they think works? :?

Lets see... the way we did it was everyone just picked the diet that they liked... be it for weight loss... or health reasons... the idea being to improve the way each of us felt each day... All of us were at least a little over weight though so I don't think any of it was just for the "ego".

Some of us did post a starting weight but, it wasn't a "rule" that we had too.

We picked Tuesdays as Our weigh in day.. we'd all weigh our selves in the morning and then report in. Some of us just said "yep, I lost some" some gave the amount UP or Down. ( most of us were doing this for weight loss).. if we went UP we were given support and hugs and if we went down we all clapped and smiled for each other.

The only thing set in stone was the Tuesday weigh in...

It worked. We all lost!

If anyone is interested in the plan, let me know and I will be more than happy to post here.... I can post each weeks menus. It's thru a program call Trim Club, don't know if anyone has heard of it or not..... I took my measurements last week and OMG! I'm so in for dropping big time!
Please!! Post away!!
Thanks!

Eek. OK, I am in too. I need to lose some pounds but am not really too stuck on some of the fad things out there. I will attempt to curb my snacking and see how that goes.
