In 2017, I started a journey to change my health. I am down 60 pounds, down many shirt sizes, needed to put many new holes in my belt, can go for long hikes without taking breaks and can even mow my entire yard without being wrecked for the rest of the day. I am now able to do more and have a bit more of the life I want. It is a great start, but I still have a long way to go.
A few good folks decided to join me on this journey. Each week, we checked in with how we did, what we did outdoors, if we lost some weight, if we gained, and what we wanted to accomplish the following week. This simple "support group" really helped get us off the couch, hold ourselves accountable for our choices, and see improvements in our health overall. Collectively, we walked hundreds of miles, have taken hundreds of thousands of steps, and have lost over 200 pounds.
#GetOutGetsFit #5 is now over, but we will continue this group journey with a new 8-week challenge...
If you would like to take part in this please email me: firstname.lastname@example.org. There is no pressure.. just a weekly check-in of how you are doing, how you are meeting your goals, and how you can really succeed in this tough journey.
We also have a Facebook group to share some adventures and photos: https://www.facebook.com/groups/getoutgetsfit/
Even if you do not want to take part in weekly check-ins, maybe you can join the group and contribute photos, recipes, and anything to help motivate a few great people to change their lives.
