It was so funny -- one of those coincidences that works out more like a sign or green light. I was thinking, while I was in St. Louis, Obesity Capital of America, about how I'm getting a bit fattie-boomba-lattie. I was looking at weight-loss helpers like Jenny Craig and NutriSystem, but they are really rather expensive for what you get. Belonging to a gym has never worked for me in the past (it turns out that the membership alone is not enough -- you actually need to show up and work out!) What I know I really need is support and accountability. And, what better place to get that from than the wonderful world o' blogging?
Then, I peeked onto Crazy Jo's, and, lo and behold, she was writing about the same thing. So, here is my proposal: A group blog to offer support, advice, recipes, tips, and, most of all, accountability to me and Jo and whomever else would like to participate. What say you folks?
I'm thinking of www.whoneedsjenny.blogspot.com.
(I had wanted www.fattieboombalattie.blogspot.com or www.fattyboombalatty.blogspot.com, but both of those were taken -- with only two posts each -- what nerve!)
Does anyone have an alternate suggestion for the URL?
Here is my goal: Lose 20 pounds by July 1, 2006.
Who wants in?
