It’s really hard to lose weight all alone. I tried for years and just couldn’t do it.
On Saturday I’m starting something totally new – an online weekly weight loss meeting that you can join on Yardstick. I’ll be live on video for an hour each week from 9am-10am PST, and everyone who’s part of the group will be able to share and discuss their goals and progress each week.
When I set out to lose 70lbs in 2006 it felt like a nearly insurmountable task. I had tried to lose weight a bunch of times and never achieved more than short term success. The difference in 2006? I committed to going to a weekly weight loss meeting (Weight Watchers) where I shared my progress with friends & strangers.
The support and encouragement gave me a boost each week – plus I had the accountability I needed to make better choices when I was tempted to revert to old habits.
I’ve waited for years for someone else to create an amazing community of support that includes live video meetings but it just hasn’t happened yet, so I finally decided to just build it.
Yardstick – a private online community for weight loss support.
I’m the first leader on the site to go live but the others listed will be starting their weekly meetings in the coming weeks and it’s incredibly exciting because they’re some of the most inspirational folks I know!
Roni was just on The Today Show talking about her weight loss journey. Drew was featured as a trainer on this season’s Extreme Weight Loss.
I’m looking forward to seeing a whole bunch of new success stories and “after” pictures come from the Yardstick community and specifically from MY group!
