THE WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE: Frankly, I am posting this Meet Up because I am sick & tired of carrying excess weight on my body’s frame. For me, joining an already established weight loss program is not an option. So I thought I would create my own support group. This is open to men and women who will be supportive to each member of the group. I credit my weight gain to my coping style towards stresses and difficult emotions. Perhaps you are like me? I am an emotional eater. I find reasons to eat when I am happy, when I am sad, when I am angry, when I am frustrated, and when I am bored. So if you dare, come join me on this journey of losing weight. No meet up fee. I am just looking to put together a support group of people seriously looking to change their body for the better. We can discuss things in this support group and see what we may need to encourage a healthy life for ourselves together. I will then look at setting up meet ups to help us through our journey of weight loss and in increasing joy in our lives. Ultimately, our life and our body, is what WE make of it. Come join me on this journey to a lean healthy body and resilient mind. MANY NUTRITIONAL PLANS TO FOLLOW. What will you follow?

Any trivia buffs out there that are interested in 🍕 pizza, 🍺 beer and trivia? I received a great suggestion from Mitch to check out Garbonzo’s because on a Tuesday nights at 8pm they feature Pub stumpers which is where we break up into teams of about 4 or 5 people and answer trivia. I am told by the manager the place really gets busy on trivia night and it is best to make a reservation. 🧐So who is interested in joining me? I am sure it’s bound to be lots of laughs and conversation.
