Spring Focus Peer Group

It’s time to get Serious

A few posts back I mentioned that it seemed there were a lot of us talking about getting serious this Springtime.  Several people chimed in that they wanted to join in, so I’m trying to figure out how we can help each other.  You don’t need to be starting, or getting back on track — you can just want a bit of extra camaraderie for a few weeks.

How it will work

How about something simple, like making public goals for the week, and keeping ourselves accountable to how we do on our goals?

We’re all at different stages of our weight loss & our goals aren’t the same, so this way everyone can do what’s right for themselves, but we can all help cheer each other on & give a gentle nudge when necessary.

For myself, the period I’m focusing on is from now until the end of July (when I leave for summer vacation) but I’m thinking we should make it from now until July 4th just so we have a manageable period of weeks – that’s 9 weeks, and we should all be able to lose at least 5-10 pounds in that time (and some of you will lose twice that!).

Does that sound reasonable?

Join In!

If you want to join, let me know in the comments & I’ll put up a special blogroll on the side.  I figured out how to make a button (it’s the first time I’ve ever done one!) & it’s grab code (so you can install it too) :

How to install this on your blog :
In your WordPress Admin account, choose the “design” tab (to the right of “write”).  Then select “widgets”.  Choose the “text” widget on the left, and drag it to the sidebar on the right (small blue rectangles).  Put the title you want (“Spring Focus” for example).  Copy the text in the box above (or on the sidebar on my blog) and past that into the main text area of the new text box you just added.  SAVE (very important to do this now).  Then move this text box to the order you want to see it (I put it at the top of the sidebar).  SAVE again.  If you check your site, you should see it now.  If not, let me know & I’ll try to help (no promises!)
If you don’t like the title “Spring Focus” or anything in the design, let me know & I can change it this weekend.
