#Reverb11: Community

"Where have you discovered community, online or otherwise, in 2011? What community would you like to join, create or more deeply connect with in 2012?"

Today's prompt is courtesy of Cali Harris.

This year, I finally took a stand against my weight. I've gotten too heavy over the years for my own comfort and finally had enough. I tried making small changes near the beginning of the year, and had very little progress. It wasn't until the summer that I remembered a Calorie Tracking website I had joined in 2010, In July, I started tracking the calories I consumed and those that I burned. I made an introduction post on the website forums, and started meeting new people. over 4 months later, I'm the captain of a Weight loss/ Excercise challenge group called "The Truffle Shufflers".
I've met a wonderful group of people who help motivate me, keep me sane, help me with food/exercise choices, share their successes and failures of weight loss with me, and are just the greatest bunch of people ever! There are many times where I feel my efforts are not enough and that I'm just going to fail like I do every time I try to lose weight, but with this group of people, they help lift my spirits and remind me of all I've accomplished so far! To date, since August 1st, I've lost 24.5lbs. Its my most successful weight loss attempt in years, and I'm going to keep on going til I reach my main goal! 

As for a Community I'd like to join/create/connect with in 2012, I'm currently happy with my MFP crew, but I would like to connect more with the blogging community, particularly those who blog about cake baking/decorating, Crafty-ness, life reflection, and good ole fashioned humor! Are you a blogger like that? If so, let me know, I'd love to check out what you have to offer! :)

Continue with me on this journey!! Check out my earlier post with links to other #Reverb / #WEverb projects, and join the adventure!

Peace and Good JuJu to You,
