Starting A Weight-Loss Support Group

Postby Club Giovane » Wed, 23 Oct 2013 3:20 pm

Hi everyone,

I am a Singaporean undergraduate student planning to start an informal female weight-loss support group and am looking for a female dance instructor, who specialises in dance forms such as bollywood, belly dancing or other unique dance forms, willing to join my team as a volunteer.

I believe that the establishment of the non-profit support group will provide women, including myself, who have been attempting to shed some weight with an avenue to sculpt their bodies while being able to express themselves freely in a non-judgemental environment. This might also be an excellent opportunity for them to pursue their passion for dancing, to tone up their body and to have fun with newfound friends in a ladies-only environment. Hence, I would like to cordially invite female volunteers with considerable experience in dance choreography and training to join me as part of the organising team, to be involved in the planning and the execution of creative and exciting informal weekly activities such as dance training, group jogging, cycling or hiking to promote healthy weight loss and to have lots of fun!

If you are willing to spend your time and effort in a meaningful manner and believe that you will be able to take on this challenge during your leisure hours, please do reply or you can email me your personal particulars (Name, Age, Contact Number, Occupation, Availability, Skills & Previous experiences, if any) via clubgiovane@gmail.com. Do let me know if you need further clarifications as well! Kindly leave your contact number at the end of your messages and rest assured that every message will be personally acknowledged.

Moreover, I would also love to hear from you if you have any experience in starting such support groups in Singapore or suggestions on gathering volunteers and members for such a cause!

Thank you so much for your support! :D

Eating less and using the stairs instead of the escalators & lifts will accomplish the same thing without using up all ones free time. (From one who is 26 kg lighter than he was 6 years ago). :cool:

Woah, that's awesome!!! Requires lots of determination, doesn't it?
I kinda figured I'm not that much of a self-driven person, unfortunately. I was thinking it might be easier if such activities are carried out as a group, where there is some form of commitment involved. Not so sure about its feasibility though... :?

Well, you can push the boundaries. Don't wait until doctor slam the "diabetic" or "high-blood-pressure" hammer :)

No it does not require LOTS of determination. You just need to get started and the habits will form over time. Eat less.

You can dance around half arsed occasionally and all this will do is work up your appetite. :cool:

Don't rely on others to lose weight. (Lost 28 kg over a year and still going)
