We highly encourage that you use the trackers provided in your profile section, specifically the Weight Tracker (http://www.medhelp.org/land/track-weight-loss
); which can be crucial to your success. In entering your current data, it provides you with a chart to monitor your progress, allows you to establish weight loss goals, tracks your measurements and clothing size, and records your exercise and daily activities. Using the Weight Tracker also gives you the ability to email it to your doctor as a point-of-reference before or during your appointment so he/she can see your progress. Take a look at it – I guarantee you, you will start using it!
This group is all about teamwork and helping each other! We are sure you will love the periodic weight loss challenges that are no more than 3 weeks in duration. We do this to provide brief periods of concerted effort where we pull together as a team to make lifestyle changes and reach small realistic weight loss goals. We believe there is always strength in numbers.
