The meetings I attend, we have a regular leader and a once a month sub leader.

It took our sub leader 3 tries to finally get it!

It took me 2 times to get it.

The program works, but we all have to figure out, how to make it work best for us.

I like meetings, and the accountability. Plus, my group is great.

But, when they say, get a work out partner, I'm like, NOT! I alternate days with 5 mile walks, and free weight lifting.

When I'm lifting, I do not need distraction. Walking, is "ME" time. Mostly, except for my one barn cat that thinks he needs to come hang with me.

What I finally realized, is, it's a good program, that gives us the tools, then it's up to us, to take the tools, and figure out how to make it work for us.

In September, 3 years of maintaining. The biggest thing I learned is be patient with yourself and the process.
