Jennifer talks about her positive experiences leading weight loss support groups knowing that one size does not fit all. She note’s that “there's a very special dynamic that can occur in a group. People start to care about each other in the group and there's also some sort of healthy competitiveness that goes on. I find this more so with men than women but men may say, well, he's lost 50 pounds; man, I want to lose 70, what's wrong with this picture? So I think, you know, comparing yourself amongst your peers can be motivating if you do it in the right way.
