Group details

Group Name: Asians Breaking Weight Barriers7
Members: 4
Location: Anywhere, Planet Earth XOXOXO

Goals: Each one of us has our own personal goals, but the thing that unites us is the breaking of cultural stereotypes and our need to for support from other APIA men and women.... All are welcome, whether you need to gain or lose, or are recovering from an eating disorder because of family and cultural pressures!

Profile: We are Asians & APIA PEERtrainers! Join us for support in your journey to lose weight, get fit, and please your neurotic Asian mother. Already a size zero? Well, chances are your crazy mom still thinks your calves are too big. (it could be that she's still bitter that you didn't become a doctor). Vent out your frustrations here. We need more warriors in the Asian Weightloss Brigade. No matter what your size, we believe that healthy habits and exercise will make you feel good and gain confidence to take over the world. At the very least, it should get your mind off your crazy Asian family know, the ones who insist you eat another serving, but won't stop yakking about how you need to diet.

Other Info: This group is a lot of fun, and it's growing fast. If you are looking for more attention, we recommend you join Asian Outcasts II or III in addition to joining this team. That way, you'll get the support of both the "Asians Breaking Weight Barriers" team (that we hope will take over the world!) and the support of a smaller group to compliment it. Our picture is of the "Angry Little Asian Girl"... 2 birds up...Gotta love it!

Members profiles:
I am 41, born and raised in Hawaii, been over-weight since second grade. Like to improve myself and I have read a lot of self-help weight loss books. I am in Weight Watchers for over a year now and have lost over 30lbs. Still need 20 more to feel healthy and have more energy.

I'm 24 years old. i've played sports since i was 10 years old, soccer is my all time favorite. I used to be pretty good before i injured my back at L5-S1. I've had surgery and it's almost like new. I love having a workout buddy but it does get hard to find someone who wants to workout like i do. I no longer have a buddy but so far have been able to keep my motivation up. I love outdoor activities and want to learn how to kayak and rock climb.
