Encourage Each Other!

Have any of you heard of "Ben Does Life"?  A guy from Arkansas (Ben Davis) started a tumblr account (http://bendoeslife.tumblr.com) to document his progress in losing weight (he's lost over 100lbs since he started) and living life.  If you haven't heard of it, you should definitely check it out!  It's truly an inspiration.  I started to wonder if something like that would work as a group effort.  Like multiple people watching the progress of others, motivating each other, etc...  I've seen tons of people motivating/encouraging each other in the 200+ topic here but it's fairly hard to keep up with it (and each person's progress).

 

I don't know about you guys but I'm tired of starting to run, quitting, starting to run, quitting, etc...  I'm tired of being ashamed of my weight.  Most of all, I'm tired of seeing/hearing about other people that are in the same situation.  Let's band together, document our progress, motivate each other, and start doing life!  I have started a tumblr account too.  You can find it at:

Please don't mistake this as a plea for popularity, followers, or site hits.  I couldn't care less about that.  This is about motivation for myself and people in the same situation as me.

 

If you're in the same boat, join in!  You don't necessarily have to create a tumblr and all of that (if you do, let me know and I will follow you!).  Just post in this topic!  Don't be ashamed to put yourself out there.  Anyone that would ridicule you for trying to make such a big change in your life clearly needs to make a big change in their own.  Let's keep each other motivated!

 

Happy Running!





Watch and follow my journey!  It begins, officially, on October 1st, 2010.  http://nathanloses.tumblr.com
