I hadn't thought of a separate board for it until BigPearl mentioned it and then SmileCreator expounded on the idea. I'm liking it though. It would be cool to see a person by person breakdown of different stories, different challenges, backsliding, lessons learned, etc. along with all the appropriate pics. That way newbies could go there, scan it for someone they identified with and read all the details about that person in one complete, comprehensible format. That would open more doors for mentoring relationships as well. More I think about that, the more important I think it is.
I hadn't really thought of the "former skinny bastard/scrawny chick turned hardbody" angle since I don't identify with that particular set of challenges. I identify with the "fat bastard/beached whale turned hardbody" set of challenges. I need motivation from that segment and I suppose those in the former category wouldn't get much motivation from my stories so they need their own as well.
The Training Log forum isn't ringing a bell with me but if it's anything like the name, it'd be cool to have. I think my particular training style (but not necessarily a daily log of it) and diet would be part of my "transformation" log/thread. Every time I made a significant change to either, I'd put up a new post on my thread and detail the success (or failure) of the previous type of training/diet as well as what I'd planned to do next. It would probably be half diary format and half commentary from others asking questions on this or that.
All interesting ideas. Thanks Char for condensing them here.
