I have a group of friends that I made over on the Weight Watcher's board on a group called the 10K Challenge. They were online friends to begin with, but in the Spring of 2004, I had a couple that came for a visit. In the Spring of 2005 there were 5 of us and that was the year Camp Taz was born. My nickname is Taz(think of the Tasmanian Devil). The first camps started as a long weekend in the spring of each year. Now it's a semi-annual event and lasts from Wednesday through til the next Tuesday. We spend the week preparing points friendly and very healthy Weight Watcher foods, truly discussing the Program and walking, kayaking, laughing, dancing, and even playing the Wii. It's a twice a year kick in the seat of the pants and a chance to refocus. With the exception of one(she's only 40 and got in being the neighbor of one of our Posse members), we're all now 60 or older, but you'd never know it. I'm going to post pictures with captions of pictures from this past week's camp. It ended today, and I have to say that it was a huge success.
