So I talked about starting a “Biggest Loser” D-Style challenge for myself in my last post. In response, I had two of my d-friends ask if they could join in also. I thought to myself, what a great idea! Let’s open this up to the Diabetes Online Community and see who else might want to join in!
Now let me start this out, this IS NOT a diet. We’re all adults here, we’ve probably been on tons of diets. This is not an exercise plan. I’m not a doctor or a trainer. This is a support group. Here to encourage and push and guide. We all know what we need to do. We’ve been on Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, SlimFast, a thousand diets. But what we lack is motivation and support. THAT IS WHAT THIS IS!
The Biggest Loser – “D” Style is a way to see your progress in black and white. To hold yourself accountable by having it published. No yelling, no “oh you’ve been bad”, just encouragement! No prizes, i think losing weight and getting healthy is prize in itself. We each plan on doing our own diets and starting our own exercise plans. I’m going to be replacing meals with Glucerna (easily digestible for my gastro) and using my Wii Fit and walking.
So if this sounds like something you’d like to be a part of (we will have cool Biggest Loser graphics for your blog!), then just send me an email with your height/weight/age and a front facing face shot of you to landileigh2 at gmail dot com, and we’ll add you in! Hope we have lots more participants!
