[a weight loss story]

Calling All Australian and New Zealand Girls (and Boys too)...

Have you ever been surfing the net, looking for healthy and nutritional information... you find a great site and get all excited reading about the latest yoghurt, now in Burpberry or Thelma McThin-Thigh's latest exercise dvd, only to realise it's a US site and, unless you want to pay a zillion dollars in shipping, you will never get to experience these delights?

Well, that happened to me last night and I got thinking... thinking... thinking... why isn't there anything like that but based here. Then I thought, why keep all the fun to myself.

So... I'm looking for people (5-10) who want to contribute to a group blog. This is what I'm thinking:

* the posts should be of interest to those who want to live healthy lifestyles eg. reviews of food products, exercise dvds, gyms; announcement of upcoming events, etc.

* you should be able to post once or twice a month minimum (but, of course, if you are uber-busy one month, I'm hardly going to hunt you down and if you want to post heaps more then go right ahead).

* posts should be articulate but snappy - something more than "I had some yoghurt, it was nice" but not a 10 page essay.

* you should be living in Australia or New Zealand - it would be ace to get people from lots of different locations.

* and, of course, you should be interested in living a healthy lifestyle.

You don't have to have a blog but since I'll host it on Blogspot, you'll have to join up as a Blogger user (it's dead easy if you aren't already).

Are you excited? I think it could be a great resource. So the next step is up to you... leave a comment or email me kathrynoh at ozemail dot com dot au. Go on, you know you want to.

Rightio. I agree wholly. All these readers of our blogs (as I know we are so popular girl, that there are heaps) need some sort of resource and we can do it. So I am up for the Challenge. I'll represent the South Island of NZ if you want me. And I am pretty sure I can manage more than "I like yoghurt, it is nice."

:) I'm doing something similar on the food aspect on my brand new food journal, and I'd love to contribute to a group blog if you'll have me! I would like to think I can manage more than "I like yoghurt" but, you know, you can be the judge! :)

Great, fantastic idea, Kathryn!. :)

Glad you went to the dr - hope you feel better soon :)

this sounds fantastic. Id be interested in the way of recipes? I love trying new WW recipes that I find through books/friends/internet and I could compile them through the webby.

Check out my blog to read my writing stylez.

I think M would be great at this!! My blog is more about my personal life, stuggles, issues etc but feel free to duplicate anything I write if you think it will benefit others. I don't mind. Only too willing to help if I can. XX

Sounds like a great idea! I also get annoyed with all the great ideas on the internet that relate only to other countries! Would be very interested in helping if needed

I'd be happy to contribute about any running/walking events that are taking place around Oz.

I've got some good sites already in my favourites so I could let you have them if you like.

that is SUCH an awesome idea - much better than that forum i tried launching but it ended up sucking! lol
if i was in full swing of being healthy, i'd be up for it! but since i'm still being a lard-arse i'm happy to sit back and watch you guys put together some awesome posts :)

This sounds like a great idea Kathryn. I really like people who just DO STUFF!! Very insprirational. I have too many commitments already but let us know when it's up and running so we can blogroll it :-)
