"Get Healthy!" Group

Hello!

In an effort to help us all get healthy, here is our new check-in.  I'll try to post weekly; anyone can fee free to grab it and post if I'm a slacker. : )  

Ideally, I think we could all post an update and I'll update the main post every Friday.  If you want added on, let me know.  I'm going to post my pounds to lose and my goal activity for the week, and I'll post any goal you like (pounds to lose, target weight, healthy food choices, activity, etc.) or nothing at all. 

Way to get fit, peeps!

"Things separate from their stories have no meaning. They are only shapes. Of a certain size and color. A certain weight. When their meaning has become lost to us they no longer have even a name. The story on the other hand can never be lost from its place in the world for it is that place.” ― Cormac McCarthy, The Crossing
