    Hi everyone! My name is Jessica. Im about 70lbs over weight. I've always been overweight and no matter what diet i've tried, nothing has worked. But in july I started doing monthly challenge groups. Really its just a huge support group where we challenge ourselves. It really actully worked for me and I was sup surprised. So I decided to do my own group. Its the same concept, but for my group I give out prizes. My first group I gave out first and second place prizes for weight loss, and an MVP person who just did amazing. Each week they had assignments they had to do which they all really liked. This last challenge we did weekly winners. Whoever lost the most % like in the biggest loser won a prize. Next challenge, which starts on Janurary 1st is going to be different. We wont be winning based on the number on a scale. We will be following a program from exercise.com that gives you daily assignments. They are all very easy and do-able and really help you focus on a healthy lifestyle, One day at a time. So if anyone is interested in joining the support group and working towards their goal you can send me your email address you use to sign into facebook and I can add you to the group. I can also provide you with the link for the challenge were going to be doing if you still want to do it but not join my group. NO MONEY or anything for this. Its just a great group of women who have really connected and I just want to see if I can find a few more people who are interested.
