As I have seen in the previous two challenges I've been in prior to the Independence, attrition runs high. Right now we have about 33% still actively participating, many never even started after signing up. Why folks do this is beyond me but no matter. We are about to enter our last full month of challenge before the 4th of July--let's keep going! If you are friends with folks on the side line, coax them. I would also encourage those who have not posted threads to do so, it is mutually beneficial to tell your story and read the stories of others. In my opinion, the most powerful feature of MFP is the social support network. Use it, it will help you succeed. Any good NSV stories? I for one am sporting better fitting pants--resale shops are awesome, nothing better than discovering a very nice pair of slacks for $1.50!!!
