Why so Public?

Why post a weight loss tracker on a blog that strangers read? Why am I announcing my not so petite number on the scale? Because I am absolutely tired of it! I will either succeed in public or fail in public. A few years ago I lost 50 pounds......I found it on the scale February! I've decided that I will never lose weight again. I need to get rid of it forever. Whenever I lose weight, I seem to be able to find it again! So, I have set my goal realistic. I've never been thin. I will never be svelte. I would however like to fit into regular sized clothes, not be ashamed of the expanse of my backside, and look more fit. I'm on my way. I've lost almost 35 lbs. since February. I've begun to exercise again. I also am able to wear a number of the clothes that I'd put away in disgust after I'd outgrown them. I don't know what I am going through lately but as I told DH...Hang on for the ride!

Good luck with the weight loss. I believe exercise is the key but probably the hardest to keep up with too.

It's hard to do, but a plan to keep it off is the best...just hard.

Good luck. I'm right there with ya!

Good luck! You can do it! :)

As for the weight tracker - I think it's a motivational tool. You can share with your friends and fellow bloggers your successes, and we can cheer you on! :)

I always felt that, the whole world can see ME, so there's no hiding my weight. Just because I haven't said the number aloud, doesn't mean anyone who looks at me doesn't know it. They just might not be able to guess down to the ounce, but they know! In any case it's your body - those around you love you now at the weight you are, and they will love you at the weight you want to be at - so it's all got to be for yourself! :) Good luck girl! :)

Good luck!!! I have recently found some of the weight I lost earlier this year. I hope to get rid of it forever and plan on working it once things settle down again.

Congrats on the weight loss. I've been thinking about it for a long time. How did you do it?

I keep finding it and loosing it too.

Making it public makes you "more responsible", imho.

Keep it going!
