    Peace and Blessings Family,

    Okay, i admit it, my name is Destee and i need to lose weight ... :cry: :thinking: :cardio: :lift: :weights: :run: :swim: :thinking: :cry:

    I read an article recently talking about obesity and how we as a people suffer from this worse than others. Outside the Superstar Spotlight, Minorities Struggle With Obesity I'm not really surprised, as we suffer from most all things, worse than others, but I think it too is an area that we need to get a handle on.

    While this thread really isn't about pointing to all the reasons why we're overweight, I do want to mention that the most unhealthy, fattening foods, are the least expensive. Couple this, with the fact that we usually have less money than others, it stands to reason that we'll be caught up in this place.

    It's not good for us though. It's killing us, especially the babies, with poor eating habits and examples.

    I think we should try to do something about it.

    I propose that we start a Destee Weight Loss Effort ... :look:

    I think it will be fun, we can all work together, share tips on how to make it through the day, as well as rejoice with each other on every pound lost!

    We have to be the ones that turn this thing around, and that includes every area of our being, that need improvement ... and well ... this is just one of them.

    I don't think we should have to say how much we weigh right now ... :eeek: ... but simply share our weight losses and stuff.

    Is anyone interested in doing this in a group, collective kind of way?

    We could meet in the chat room, encourage each other, as well as post here.

    What say you all? Am I the only one that needs to lose some weight, be in better physical condition?

    Looking forward to the responses.

    Love You!

    :heart:

    Destee

    i remember when po was sharing her efforts with us. weren't there a couple of other sisters in on that thread?

    good thought; having a thread (or forum) highlighting, encouraging and sharing weight control techniques, successes and support for so-called "failures", would be a GoodThing[tm].
