    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?

    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".   hmm   (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.
