- Wedding: June 2014
OK bees. Here’s the deal for our accountability/support/goal-oriented weight loss group that I’m so happy so many of your are interested in! It was started from this thread: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/would-any-bees-be-interested-in-a-weight-loss-club
Our ‘official’ name is ‘In It To Thin It Bees’ (Or IITTI Bees for short — how cute that it sounds like “itty bees” :-)).
I will start weekly posts every Sunday around 7pm central time with the title “In It To Thin It Bees: Weekly Check In”. In this post I will put the following format for you to use:
Week of X
Weight Lost This Week: X
Total Weight Loss: X
Week of 7/17/13
Weight Lost This Week: 1.2 lb
Total Weight Loss: 7.1 lbs
This format is totally flexible though! If you’d rather put how much you weigh (instead of loss), how your clothes fit, your caloric intake, etc. – whatever way you are measuring progress. Just make sure you are recording it for the week prior up until that Sunday. I don’t intend to PM everyone to check the post, so please be on the lookout for it Sunday evening (I’ll try to give you a more specific time as I see how this time frame works for me in the coming weeks).
In the meantime, in all the other 6 days or Sunday, too, feel free to post health or fitness questions (either for a Get To Know You or seeking information), tips, progress, articles you want to share, or anything in between! Just please be sure to tag us so we know you are on our team. For example, in the title, put “In It To Thin It Bees: How do you…”.
As you know from my post, this is a brand new group so things may change along the way. Feel free to PM me with suggestions, thoughts or questions. Bear with me as I figure things out!
Research shows that you are more likely to see results when you have a support group and that’s us IITTI Bees! We also have the most motivational reason to lose — our wedding day! And pictures. And honeymoon. We can do this, Bees! I’ll see you out there 🙂
P.S. If you use My Fitness Pal, my screen name is xt5678. I’d love to have overlap support for both (hey, couldn’t hurt right?) 🙂
