Annual Report in the Works!

We have started to work on the analysis of our user data to determine the average weight loss.  Last year, all of our returning users showed an average loss of 11 lbs!

We will be publishing average for all returning users as well as users with varying number of entries and length of use.  Our site, now has been live for more than 30 months.  There are many users with long history of use of our site.  The data for for number of entries and duration of use is expected to be richer this year.

Get you weight and wellness data in! Good or bad!!


P.S. We always encourage you to review your wellness program with your physician.

Healthy and Happy 2011!

Believe it! The simplest of steps has the power to transform dramatically.


Post your tracked weight each day; draw in the history of where you've been and what has worked for you in the past; create a platform to break through horizons ahead.

It is as simple as it is powerful.

All the best of the New Year to you in tapping this power to mark a new beginning for your most successful effort!
