Wagon Jumpers May 21-27, 2012

Welcome to the Wagon Jumpers weekly thread! We are a group of CC members who have identified that one of our main challenges with achieving our weight loss, maintenance or general health goals is consistency.

This thread is designed to encourage long term commitment to our goals by publicly declaring them and asking the other members of this thread to hold us accountable. The primary focus of Wagon Jumpers is not how much weight you have lost, or need to lose, but what you need to do on a daily basis to meet your long term goals.

The idea of Wagon Jumpers was to create a close community where participants could get to know each other, creating a virtual support network as they attempt long term weight management.

This is impossible with an 'always open' group as there would be too many people coming and going. For this reason we have capped group membership numbers to 20 participants.

If you would like to be a member of this group please contact our wait list managerSarah_ann_artist

There are two rules for Wagon Jumpers:

1. All members must post once per week between Monday and Sunday.

2. All members must check the thread for members who have not posted by Saturday (a short list is posted at the end of the week) or are on the MIA list on Sunday and send them a polite and positive message to stay involved in the group and on track with their goals.

Thanks for doing the MIA list Sarah Ann! I just got back from Cape Cod and didn't realize until Sat afternoon that I'd forgotten it and had no easy internet access. Going through all my emails now. We had a beautiful weekend here. Hope everyone else did too!

This thread is now closed.

The new thread is posted here.


Congrats on the new addition to your family, Val!

I am in complete agreement with you on prescreening would-be parents Wink
