How this site came about
I watched my wife struggle for years to lose weight. I saw her try every diet and every technique out there to loose weight. Every Monday was the same old story. Loose a pound, gain a pound. Loose a pound, gain a pound. Never, in years, making a decent dent in her fitness goals.
Then in 2006 she took part in News 5’s Lose a Ton Challenge. It was like St Louis’ version of Biggest Loser. And I’m telling you …. BANG!!! that extra weight melted off like wax in a furnace. It was unbelievable, after all these years, that she suddenly dropped to her ideal weight and fitness level. In less than 3 months. And she loved it. She meet new people and became personal friends with her assigned personal trainer. And she didn’t even win the competition.
So it was glaringly obvious that the difference was the motivation level. And that motivation level years after the fact was still keeping her fitness level high. It was life changing. And it was all motivation.
I am a full time web developer and I love web site creation. I’m always looking for a idea that will produce a successful web site. And knowing how this set of circumstances helped my wife as it did I considered what it would take to attempt to duplicate the motivational power that news program instilled in it’s competitors. I knew I didn’t have the power of a network broadcasting station but if a web site could be created and effectively leveraged social media then we might have a chance at reaching the motivational level that program bestowed. The more people we involve and the more popular the site becomes the more powerful it’s base objective gets and with enough work and fortitude we could together change lives for the permanent better in the same way my wife’s life was changed by that brief early morning 15 minutes a week news program.
