"Taking It Off"

offWant to lose weight? Do you have a plan of your own? Do you want to learn about the plans others are using to lose weight? Here is your chance. Each "Taking It Off" participant determines their own path to weight-loss and shares their experiences with the group as they experiment with everything from Acupuncture to Canada's Food Guide to the South Beach Diet to Walking. While there may be lots of fun involved, no prizes are offered besides bragging rights and no one is ever voted off the Island.

Join the journey toward a healthier lifestyle. This group gives you a chance to track your progress, pick up weight loss tips, get support and connect with others who are fighting the good fight.
