So I started my own weight loss group. Yeah it’s exploding all over the place it’s already so popular. We have a president and a vice president and everything. Yeah it’s pretty awesome.

How many are in the group? Um…let’s see…including myself…that makes…two.

Woo – we are on fire.

My friend Lola* and I have decided to support each other in our weight loss efforts. We created our own super secret weight loss group on Facebook  and we plan on getting together regularly to discuss ideas, recipes, and just give each other support and tough love when it’s needed. I’d like to add a few more people to our group, but I’m not sure how to approach it. Debby says my “hey you’re fat, wanna join my group?” approach might not be the best way to go, so I gotta work on that.

My plan is to allow myself 1400-1600 cals per day, and so I don’t make myself nutso, I’m going to use this range as a guideline. I get in trouble when I try to be too obsessive about counting calories, so hopefully a more laid back approach will help keep me going. We recorded our first official weigh in this morning (mine was 190 dammit) so we are on our way. I already told her that I need her to use the tough love on me and NOT let me off the hook about working out and eating well. I don’t want this to turn into a “I’ve had a bad day, let’s commiserate over ice cream” kind of relationships. I need a partner who won’t be afraid to kick my tail. But in as gentle a manner as possible!

So that’s my plan for now. I hope Super Secret Sneaky Weight Loss works!
