Losing Weight TogetherThere’s something to be said for the support of friends when trying to lose weight. My good friend and professional colleague joined the Emperor and I for a fabulous Italian dinner last night at Ralph’s Italian Restaurant in South Philly. We were talking about our struggles to lose weight and she told me that she had recently partnered with her good friend to work together in a common goal. The goal they set was to eat healthy, exercise, report to each other daily and open phone lines when either of them gets into a “crisis” situation. They also each set the goal of 20 pounds by May – very attainable!

I was excited and asked if I could join their small group! I was welcomed in.

I invited both of them to be authors on Fat Lady Singz and I’m hoping they will take me up on that offer and write posts on their struggles and successes.

What I struggle with most in trying to lose weight and make good, healthful choices when eating – is maintaining the motivation. I believe entering into this pursuit with friends and like-minded people will help tremendously overcoming that obstacle.

So now, WE will endeavor to persevere!
