Weight loss board? (ot)

Do you all know if there is a weight loss board on here? Just wondering. Smile I am more active on this board than any other board on here so I thought I'd ask you all. Hope you don't mind! I don't see any on here though? Unless I'm not looking right. I think it would be nice to be able to have some sort of support in my weight loss journey though ya know?

Thanks!

yeah I saw that. It looks neat but there are no teams up there that I recognize. I'm only active on this board and sort of on my 2006 board but besides that nothing lol Oh well!

I'm on the Biggest Loser Challenge Board. And I love it. There is about 6 of us from my Feb 2010 birth board on my team. It's really easy to follow.
You get points daily for completing certian criteria: eating breakfast, water intake, diet, exercise, etc. Oh, and a point for daily check in with your team. The best part about it is that the only thing your competing for is bragging rights so no one really gets mad if you did bad that week. It's more of a support group than anything else. We exchange recipes, work out ideas and just chat about everyday issues. It seems intimidating, but it's so not. I highly recommend you give it a try when the next challenge starts up sometime in January.
I will admit, I haven't lost that much weight, but that's my fault. I just wasn't motivated to exercise and that's really what I need.

I'm sure you'd be more than welcome to lurk or even join in on my board's daily posts (Feb 2010 Fillies). We've become a really tight group of ladies but would not object to another. Or if you want, sign up when the next challenge starts and they'll assign you a team.

I'll try to remember to look into it in January Smile thanks. It seems a bit far off and I've been a bit anxious to get things off my chest lol I keep a blog for now and that seems to help a bit. It's private though so I know strangers aren't reading it Blum 3 I've gone lurking at the biggest loser board but because of the teams and all I find I can't really get much support there unless I'm part of a team and my birth board doesn't do that challenge. I've been trying to google some weight loss boards but it's a bit weird being anywhere else but around here. It's too bad there isn't just a general weight loss board instead of the biggest loser one.

L, you should totally join in Smile I'm also on Feb 2010 with Deirdre. I agree with 'the more the merrier' philosophy. If it weren't for that board I doubt I would drink any water at all daily or keep myself accountable.

ok Thanks!! Smile I might pop over there every now and then. I just recently found a weight loss website. It's so awesome too and a bit overwhelming but so far I'm loving it and have found lots of inspiration there. The site is nothing like I've been to before. Tracking calories and fitness, your own page where you can add friends and people can add you, message boards. You name it it's there lol

its sparkpeople.com That place is awesome! There are so many ladies there trying to lose weight and I've seen some amazing transformations so far Smile It's very motivating! AND I can also input my own calories there as well. I've always tried to go to sites like calorie counter and stuff, but those never work for me because the products are just different here in Norway! And it's by grams and kilos and milliliters, etc. We don't use pounds or cups or ounces here so it's been hard measuring food. And food is also per 100grams, not by serving size. So it's a bit hard counting calories. But this site allows me to input my own food. I just need a scale now to figure out how much I'm actually eating and put it in the chart! Smile It also has a weeks worth of food suggestions that I can follow if I want and recipes pop up every now and then. Today I got a applesauce oatmeal muffins recipe. Each muffin is about 93 calories each or so. I just wish they sold unsweetened applesauce here in Norway. It's way too sugary. Sorry rambling now! Wink

And thanks! I'm slowly trying to get better at the whole healthy thing. I need to get more organized I think. It's hard but I'm getting there. Smile
