LA Weight Loss - Weight Loss Plan vs Buying Habits Survey

10-26-2007, 05:23 PM
Hello everyone! My name is Michelle and I've been a member here at 3FC since September 19th, 2006. Not only am I a fellow chick, but I manage to balance a forum challenge, a newly-wed husband and going to work and school full time. When I was asked by my Statistics professor to come up with a survey about any topic I wanted, my first thoughts were to survey organic buying habits. But what would make that even better would be to include people that are dieting and exercising. So I've been given the go ahead for all of you to participate by the 3FC's themselves! :D

All that I need for you to do is copy the below survey into a private message addressed to me and answer the corresponding questions. Please note that you can only select one answer per question in order for your survey to count.

If for some reason you try to send it through a private message and my box is full, please keep trying!

Just so you know before you get started, there are no right or wrong answers. This needs to be 100% honest in order for my report to work. It's a voluntary survey and should only take about 15 to 20 minutes, which includes pming your results to me. I'm the only one that will see them, and your names will not be attached to them in anyway once I enter them in for my project.

Because this is a project for my class, there is unfortunately a deadline. I need to have all of the completed surveys of people that want to participate in my private message box no later than November 4th.

Thank you so much for helping me out! I'm not sure how Suzanne and the ladies will want to post the results but they will be ready in the upcoming weeks!

Michelle ;)
