Art-Sweet and Kelsey may be joining since they left comments last week, but I haven't confirmed what they are doing.EDIT: Kelsey's too busy with her thesis and making a baby (as if that's a suitable excuse for not lowering her A1C... whatever... ;-) ), but Wendy joined the A1C Group! Woohoo!
Now you know who else is in your groups. Talk amongst yourselves. Share ideas, etc.
The first Weigh-in and Check-in is on Sunday, February 4th. Please send a digital photo of you on your scale if you are in the Weight Loss Group. Please send a download of your logsheet if you are in the A1C group. If you aren't able to send in a download, you need to write one by hand and send in a digital photo of your 14-day average.
Start the year off right!
