New blog!

Ive been debating starting a weight loss blog for a long time. I actually did start it but never posted it. You can see it on my dashboard. To be truthful, I was a little embarrassed to start it. If I was going to start a weight loss blog then I was going to go full throttle on it and hold no bars back. I want it to be relatable and I want to be successful. Up until now its been all talk for me and so I didn't want to start something that I couldn't finish.

I'm feeling pretty confident that I am in the right mind set to start this now. I'm hoping that I'm not the only one out there that needs to loose weight. I know I have a lot of wonderful readers. Are you all skinny? Or are some of you fat overweight like me? Well Id like to know how many of you would follow me on my journey. I'm going to need LOTS of support. Ill let you know when its fully up and running, but you can view what little I do have here. Its tentatively called "experiment on melting fat." I also don't have the design of it done so its a REALLY bright yellow. LOL

I am normally a pretty silent reader. I stumbled on your blog from Cindie who had a weight loss blog. One of those click to the next ones constantly and I was really moved by you. So I started following. I have no expierence with children, I'm 24 and not ready yet, none with adoption either. So I kept quiet. However, I do have a "struggling" weight loss blog and I am all for you having one if you want one!

Don't ever feel embarrased. The truth is I thought mine would hold me accountable and it did for a while. Then I fell off the wagon. My few followers do cheer me on and give me support but that won't always be enough. Good luck Rebekah! I think its great! I also love SparkPeople. You should look into getting a Sparkpage! If you're interested email me and I will give you my page. It really helped me more than anything. I logged calories against my wants and it worked. Its great.

Take care,

I would totally follow and support you. I know all about being overweight. I have been heavy almost all my life but now while taking prednisolone I gained another 70 lbs and now I'm pretty big.

I would absolutely follow along with you! I struggle with being overweight - and just recently spoke about it with my friend. We are trying to stay on track and keep motivated ... not easy stuff! So I hope you start it up and continue with it! You are an inspiration for me here and I'm sure you will be there too!!!

I would follow your new blog and try to support you. I, too, struggle with being overweight. I always have been but until lately it didn't affect how I feel. Somewhere between last summer and now, I gained more weight.
When I started babysitting for Meld and geting down to the kid's levels. I felt it in my knees. I started working out more at the Ymca and lost ten lbs but it's just been maintaining for now. Once a week, I drag my friend out with me and we walk even longer than I do on my own.

Hey Rebekah, I too will follow you. I must tell you that I did the WW program 3 years ago. I weighed 180 pds in October 2007, Now I weigh 115 pds. The reason I tell you this is to let you know with the right mind set, it can be done. I did it due to health issues that are now totally gone. I will follow and encourage you all the way.

I will be one of your loudest cheerleaders - I'm so proud of you!
