It isn't too late!  Just join in for the rest of December!

Do you find it a bit difficult to stay motivated with all those sugar plum fairies dancing around??  Well, just come on over to our chat board and make yourself check in every day.  You’ll find inspiration there and just checking in might give you that little bit of accountability that will make a difference.  No eating or exercising rules, we just want to tell folks what we are doing or just say hi and maybe read about how others are doing it.  Being around like-minded folks DOES make a difference.  Let’s do it!

This works best from your browser (MFP app=no bueno).  Go to the group page and look around.  More rules and info will be posted there:
