Annual WLF event

Postby DD Diva » Sun Aug 31, 2014 8:11 pm

Hey everyone,

I'm not sure how this will go down, but it's just a thought (so be gentle with me okay?) :oops:

I was thinking that it would be a great idea, if once a year, we had an actual face-to-face catch up of forum members, maybe a weigh in followed by a lunch (all healthy of course) in one of our home cities, which could be rotated each year so that we have one in everyone's city at some point???

What do you think???? :D I figured we all seem to "go on holidays" and "weekend get-aways" so why not an interstate trip once a year, to catch up with other WLF members at an annual gathering???? It could be posted on the forum page, and we may even get some of lurkers to attend as well; wouldn't that be great???!!! :D

Who's in????????
:wink:

Sounds like a great idea...for you guys at the wrong end of Australia. :wink:
I would love to catch up with you all face to face but Perth is a long way from the rest of you guys unless you all fancy a trip over this way I don't think I could manage it currently. :(

I do like the idea in principle, it would be a great motivator and team building exercise (who knows may be able to get in some real group exercise in as well :shock: ). 8)

Great!! :D But we'll see what the others think, and of course, it has to be well in advance, we can't expect people to just up and fly interstate. If everyone agrees maybe we can make it a pre-Christmas gathering???

It would be great to get together face to face.
Someone once said to me that I was inspiring to them because they actual knew me personally (rather than seeing someone in the media and like) who had lost a huge amount of weight. It made the possibility of succeeding more possible to them.
I would love for you guys to actually step into my old pants (literally) and see the vastness of the waist around you and look at me standing before you - surely that would inspire you. Or to flick through my weight loss book and see each daily entry of my weight loss journey to understand how each small step brings you closer to victory. 8)

its ever so interesting too meet people from forums :lol: :lol: :lol:

they sound so interesting and you think these people are great in most cases,then you meet them and you go oh boy...I use too chatter with a person on a forum,and when we meet it was like censored do you even have a voice,i chatted away and was nice and she had nothing at all too offer.was even hard for her too say hello...yet she was a card on the forum and full of life...I thought this girls so lovely and funny and in life she didn't have a bloody thing...was extremely interesting,i said too my husband can you believe that..we both cracked up and couldn't believe how she sat there and said not a bloody thing,her husband was lovely and chatted away but she was like knock knock any personality???

so could be the same if we all meet we might sit there looking at each other going hello,anybody home??

oh wouldn't that be fun too fly too WA for lol..

After Christmas is always better for me than before Christmas.
