Or at least they’re gonna be.

An amazing group of Cincinnati gals found themselves Twittering yesterday afternoon. This is certainly not a rare phenomenon, one which normally just leads to decreased work production and poor performance reviews (sorry bossman). But yesterday an inspired idea was hatched. Seven women, unhappy with the numbers they were seeing on the scale rallied to make a life change and committed to helping each other along the way.

I’m very proud to be amongst these women:

Julie – Wine Me Dine Me

Shannan – Mommy Bits

Laura – Laura’s Carbon Footprint

Monika – I need yours!

Michelle – My Wine Education

Kate – Kate’s Random Musings

We’re gonna pull our collective efforts and girl power to recreate ourselves. And lucky you – you get to follow us each step of the way. Warning: seven women cutting back on their favorite foods? The ride might get bumpy from time to time.

So, please head over (and subscribe) to our new venture: Losing it in Cincinnati. And join us or just root us on. There are seven of us, each approaching this from a different perspective (I think I’m the only one doing Weight Watchers), so there is going to be plenty of material for all shapes, sizes, and plans of attack.

Some of us have a little to lose (Laura wants to be her best and lose ten pounds for her wedding in October), some of us have a lot to lose (as you know, I need to knock off another fifty or so pounds to return to my fighting weight), and everything in between.

Each of us will post once a week on our day (mine is Tuesday’s – so mark your calendars) and update you on our progress; offer tips that work for us – or ones that didn’t; recipes; you know, the nuts and bolts of weight loss.

Wish us luck!
