Well a little promotion thread. Way back when on VW Slynny and I were chating about treadmill work-outs and how hard it can be to stay motivated. We decided to start a group called Hamsters,ya know a hamster on wheel is like runnin' on a treadmill. Then others wanted to join in so we made it a group for anyone wanting to work-out ,stay motivated,and offer and recieve support. Tweety came along and with his great leadership skills wrote a mission statment and got us going. That was 16 weeks ago.What started out as 3 "rodents has now grown to over a hundred!<br><br><br><br>
We are starting week 17 this Sunday. I would like to invite everyone that wants to inprove there physical level to join in. All ya got to do is post! We want to hear about the bad days and the good days. We offer support and motovation. Were never about competion. A walk around the block and a marathon are all the same to us. Its all about effort and long term goals and doing it one day at a time.<br><br><br><br>
I used to weigh in at over 400 lbs....not a type-o<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"> I had so much wrong with me that I was in a fight for my life.

The hamsters has really helped me in this journey. so I and others try to use are experiance to pass along. In the process we are kept motivated by everyone else. We chere victory and effort. We offer a hand out when one of us stumble. We take care of each other. So if this is something you think that you would like to be a part of...join us! We are posting in the Healthy Living forum.
