Would you join in a citywide weight loss challenge?
Boston just announced a challenge to have the city lose 1 million pounds in a year. Would you join in such a challenge in your city?
What a fantastic idea!! Yes I would join in. Orlando needs to get with the program.
I join nothing that involves something personal, like losing weight or exercising. It goes against my personality, which is that I like being "a lone wolf" when it comes to any personal challenges/aims of one sort or another. Some people like "all being in a group and sharing something in common". Forgive me, Anyone Who Likes Groups (and it isn't that I necessarily think my attitude is the best or that I don't respect others who do things differently), but I kind of see group efforts as "sheep efforts" (lol) When I have an aim/challenge I withdraw, make my plan, and want everyone else out of my business. I see groups of other people as "for socializing only", not "life stuff". (Whoa. I can feel myself "getting mean" just thinking about groups aimed at people achieving personal aims. (lol))
I can see where that would be helpful as you would have the support of so many people. I think it would be easier to follow the diet as you wouldn't want to let other people down or consider yourself as failing the challenge.
No, yes, maybe - can't decide - I can see benefits to joint action but at the same time I don't enjoy being part of the 'herd' and would like to do my own thing. I guess the best answer is it depends on the individual and how socially aligned they are to the city they inhabit.
Hope thi helps.

I guess I wimped out of the 90/90. Having just completed the 30/30 I recognize there are days when a hub does not "happen". So trying this for myself and invite others who feel inspired to join me - post your acceptance on this thread. Happy hubbing:-)

The Klu Klux Klan (and now the White Supremacists) are, unfortunately, part of the American character. More specifically, they are the embodiment of everything bad about that character. The driving force behind these groups led to the huge wave of lynchings and the genocide and ethnic...

Those who have been around awhile know that I personally prefer starting Hub Challenges that coincide with calendar months. It's just easier to keep up with what day you're on. I play to write and publish 30 hubs during the month of March.If you've been contemplating joining a HubChallenge,...

I suppose with the latest Google Panda update and all the low traffic we've been getting, I guess it's time to start writing more hubs. While I wasn't affected too badly by the update, I still want to increase my traffic and hit payout next month or the month after. I want to hit 80 hubs by the end...
