A WeightLossWar is waged!

My main man Chad Blodgett just launched WeightLossWars.com, a smokin' social network for people who are trying to stay fit and/or lose weight. It's already my favorite social network for several reasons:

1) Summer time is right around the corner and I need all of the help I can get to slim down to my 190 lb target weight. On WLW, I can ask my friends to help me lose weight by becoming my "motivators". That means that every day when I update my profile -- how long I worked out, how much I weigh, how far I ran, etc. -- they get an email that charts my progress.

2) I'm in sales and business development, so I love numbers. When I input my stats, WLW automatically generates a graph for me that charts my progress.

3) This is the first social network that I have convinced my wife to join. She's always been a hater of the 2.0 stuff, so this is a big step in our relationship. :)

If you want to get in on the comedy that is my attempt to lose weight, create a profile and send me a request for friendship. My profile name is jjordan.

Congrats to Chad, Blake and the Griffio team for teaming up to make this happen!
