|View The Group on Facebook|
When I first joined the Facebook group for the Fox 2 21 Day Weight Loss Challenge I did it really out of being a fan of the News Channel; (as we all know I think LeDuff, Perkins, and Isom reign supreme of the local news casters in my viewing area.) I then began to interact in the group; just a bit because most of what I really want to say should not be said at all on facebook or any other social media website that can capture it forever and come back to haunt my ass in 10 years. I eventually started paying further attention to what the group members were writing, how they are eating, exercising and encouraging each and made the selfless deduction that this group is pretty cool. This group's conversational style postings kind of neutralize me on my soap box.
All in all after two weeks of following this Facebook group I will repeat as I posted on the Groups page: "I really think this group is bringing together people who would not normally communicate with each other on a level so personal as weight loss. Its important to be healthy that is something that EVERYONE regardless of Social Sector, Race, Religion, Political Beliefs etc. has in common and this forum has provided what I am viewing as a great tool for people to meet, help, support and encourage each other!!!"
