Wired News – AP News: “As part of the initiative, residents can sign up and track their weight loss on a new Web site, http://www.thiscityisgoingonadiet.com . More than 2,600 people had registered by Thursday. They’ve lost more than 300 pounds.”
This is one mayor who knows how to get the team spirit going. It is fantastic to get a whole city going on health and fitness and to use a website to log progress. If the citizens also have a forum there , they’d be able to encourage each other. It’s the sort of thing which could take off really well because people like to be part of a community and the website will be a way of keeping focused and encouraged. I hope the people of Oklahoma City do well.
