Well, I figured that there would be at least a few of us at LwC who would be making resolutions to lose weight in the coming year. And I'm one of them! Personally, I lost 2 stone this year and would like to lose a further 3 stone in 2009. (That sounds like quite a lot, when said out-loud, but it's still not down to what I'm told is my "ideal" weight.)
So, how about we start a blog where different users can chronicle their weight-loss? You won't need to say how much you weigh - if you're uncomfortable - but obviously you'll need to say if you've lost weight that week and how much.
(I'm guessing that we'll go for weekly weigh-ins, probably on a Monday morning?)
I've spoken to Tuffy and he's up for it. If anyone else out there is interested, leave a comment or send me an email. We'll be going live in the first week or two fo January. So, you've still got time to make a new resolution!
As I suggested above, I'm aiming at 3 stone over the year, so will be in this for the long-term. However, there's no reason why you can't sign up for a month or two.
