My BodyGroup ByeByeBodyFat is goal oriented group geared to educate and motivate members to get closer to their goal of weight lose. The members are either individuals seeking help or looking to give help.

I started this group to get everyone that is trying to lower their BF% in one supportive group. I want it to be a place where anyone that is trying to lose can come and get tips and advice on losing weight from others. I enjoy helping people reach their weight loss goals and I hope to have others like myself in this group.

[ Q ] How do your members use the BodyGroup feature?

The members post thoughts and questions to help with all the goals they are trying reach.


[ Q ] Who are some of your notable members?

Budge, bmi68920, wickedlink, xnewsome, and I (WheyFed) are some of the most notable members of the group. They are always posting progress on the group bulletin to motivate the rest of group. They are always helpful, answering any questions that members come up with. Staying consistent and disciplined with diet and a routine is not an easy task for anyone. We have work, family and finances that make it hard to stay focused. Budge shared his struggle to stick with it due to his wife giving birth to his beautiful baby. He shared his experience with group and everyone gave him positive and motivating words to keep going. Right there shows how close the group is becoming and how willing we are to be there for each other.

[ Q ] How would you explain the attitude needed in your group, to a new member?

Everyone that joins ByeByeBodyFat should be willing to share their experience and knowledge to help everyone in the group get closer to their goals.


[ Q ] In what way has motivating other BodySpace users given you the ability to push yourself to new levels?

It put me in a position where I felt that I had to be an example for others. Show everyone that with some dedication and discipline you can obtain any goal set.


[ Q ] What would you tell someone who is contemplating making a commitment to joining your group, to motivate them to make the commitment?

Losing weight is difficult at times, but if we can all come together and share our knowledge and passion about fitness we can make it easier on each other.

[ Q ] How do you think the group mentality applies to your personal life and how has it helped?

I am that guy at the gym that everyone approaches for advice and motivation. I love being that person, I enjoy helping others attack whatever goal they have. I always tell people knowledge is power when it comes to fitness.


[ Q ] Why join your group as opposed to other transformation groups?

I say join as many groups as you can because you will gain a lot from each individual group. But if your goals are geared for weight loss this group is where to go.


[ Q ] How do you feel is the best way to motivate others within the confines of the BodyGroup page?

Just being active with the group, sharing whatever you're experiencing with your fitness journey. Others will automatically see that your serious and give you positive feedback.


The Power Of Groups

The cultural anthropologist Margaret Mead once said, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever does." So what's the secret? Why are groups so powerful? The answer lies in their social dynamic!

  • Group members often have the same goals.
  • They motivate one another.
  • They learn from each other.
  • They become a family that provides support when times are tough and entertainment when things are good!

-> Build Success:

    Having the right social network can define success in any endeavor that you pursue. After all, a man is judged by the company he keeps. Someone who shares your goals can help you overcome any adversity.

    Finding that person, however, can be just as difficult. A BodyGroup can connect you with people who can mentor you, challenge you, and exchange ideas that you might not have come across otherwise.


-> Help Others:

    You, in turn, can help others on the same path. By acting as both student and teacher, keeping an open mind to new ideas and different methods, you may be the catalyst to the success of your group. Helping someone else with their goals can be very rewarding, and oftentimes, we benefit just as much by helping out.

    BodyGroups are a great way to ask questions, learn, and make progress in a fun and positive environment! No matter what goals you have in mind, don't do it all alone-join a BodyGroup and find all the support you need, any time, all the time.

    Joining a group is quick and easy! Find a group that matches up with what you want to do, check them out, and join! Then it's just up to you to contribute and communicate.


-> Start Your Own Group:

    What if the group I am looking for doesn't exist? Maybe you can't find the group you were looking for. That's ok, because you can start your own group, and then invite others to join you! You can even start and be a member of multiple BodyGroups. If having one circle of friends is good, then more is better!
