The 800lb Me in the Room

You may remember a while ago, when I talked a little bit about my new resolve to lose weight. I promised to come back a few weeks later and let you know how it was going.

Well, I was doing well for about a week and a half, but then I started struggling. The numbers on the scale stagnated then started creeping up a little, 0.2 lbs at a time until I was back where I started. Since then, I have committed more thoroughly to weight loss. I have to stop letting it be this little thing I do on the side but try to ignore most of the time. And now, in the past few weeks, I really have turned over a new leaf. This isn't the kind of enthusiasm that comes from subscribing to someone else's ideas--I am truly, finally, changing the way I think about things. I feel at peace and delighted about the body I WILL get back.

Anyway, I started a new blog as a journal in my weight loss journey. I just wanted to mention that to anyone who might be interested. It's a secret blog--it's not private, but it is fairly unfindable. I don't want the whole world to be able to read it. However, I think the things I'm learning might be helpful to those with similar goals. If you would like to subscribe to my new blog, leave a comment to that effect and I will email you the link.

Hey! My SIL and I (Wendy, not Liz) are doing our own weight loss support group too! We do weekly check-ins, swap recipes, etc. We're both doing a version of WW, so I'd love to keep up with your new blog!
