Any Interest in Workout Group

Hey, Forum!  I am desperately trying to lose 30lbs gained while recovering from Achilles surgery.  My level of commitment is always increased when I am either competing or part of a team.  Is anyone interested in joining a workout group where we track our daily workouts with the mapmyfitness application and compete with each other on weekly basis.  Depending on how many folks are interested, I am thinking the person who burned the least amount of calories for the week send 5 cigars to the person who burned the most or the bottom 5 send 1 cigar each to the weekly winner.  Any interest at all?

    I pick it up and then I put it down, then iI pick it up, then I put it down.  I am of course talking about my beer.  Its the best exercise there is.

    I am interested. Mapmyfitness you say? Do we also want to try and do weigh-ins and perhaps even do a food tie in?

    I am down 6 lbs and the only thing I am doing different besides lifting 4x a week and hiking, I cut out carbs and am eating more veggies.

    Haven't felt this good in years

    I would be interested in joining except I'm doing the opposite and trying to add weight/bulk up

    Hey Bert,

    I think you could still join in, same goal (working out)

    Penn, thoughts?

    I think it all ties in.  Mapmyfitness can track your weightlifting as well.  We can do weigh-ins if more people choose.  The difficulty with weigh-ins is people work out for different reasons - some to lose; some to tone and others to build more mass.  I think for those reasons the food tie any for an entire group is not possible either.  But, Im open to anything and want to create a group that works for as many folks as possible.  Everyone's thoughts are important if we form this to fit everyone.

    Even if we don't use it as a competition with rewards but a support group to encourage more people to workout and eat healthy.
