GMA and People Magazine

Hey guys! I was just wondering how many people joined peertrainer due to the recent publications in people and the appearance on Good Morning America(or any other media sources not mentioned)?

I joined on the 11th. It took me a day or two to get the hang of how things work but I'm looking forward to journaling on PT.

people mag

Picked up People magazine in line at the grocery store tonight, telling myself that it would be motivation to workout because I'd only let myself read it at the gym. Of course, I opened it up when I got home and started to flip through when I saw the woman who had joined PEERtrainer....and here I am :).

I joined because I saw Kate on GMA and she mentioned PT. I looked around the site at work during the day and joined last night.

I too joined based on the article that can be found in People magazine. I definately think it is a worth while idea to get individuals who are all striving for a common goal together for support. Good luck to everyone and keep up the good work!

I joined after watching GMA yesterday. I took one look and knew this would be a good idea and help keep me motivated and accountable for my eating and exercising.

Yep I saw (Kate?) on GMA yesterday and thought it sounded interesting. I am a huge web junkie and I know the hardest part for my dieting is not having a support group. So I figured its on the internet and its a support group it cant be bad :)
