I definetly think so. My short term goal is to start a blog myself. Just need to figure out how to start.

For sure! I got encouragement to try Zumba, which I just love, but would have been a bit too shy to go to. Plus I find it helps me to look back and see where I might be going wrong, eg, feeling grumpy and out of sorts, means I might be coming down with a virus, so instead of eating junk in a funk, I might try more citrus fruit and try to get more sleep... plus, it's the community that I find so supportive on SP, and blogging is how you be part of that. Give it a go!

I never have but would like to start. My personal problem is that I live in the area of politics and that is probably not a suitable venue for SP. Your thoughts???

Yes, it keeps me accountable, and the support and encouragement really help. Not just for the diet and exercise, but with what I go through living with cancer and going through chemotherapy.

Not sure really.

You can scream, yell, shout, cry, whimper, grunt, bleed, puke and pass out. JUST DON'T QUIT!

Oh, yes. Besides acting as a journal for me, it includes the SP Community, thereby making me accountable. Also, blogging is a great way to invite feedback,

It can! It not only helps me vent any frustrations and talk about any feelings, but also keeps me more accountable because I am including others in knowing about my goals.

If you focus on results, you will never change. If you focus on change, you will get results.

YES. WHEN YOU BLOG, YOU TELL US ABOUT YOURSELF, GOOD DAYS, BAD DAYS. THROUGH BLOGS, PEOPLE STOP BY AND TALK BACK. GIVE SUPPORT, GIVE THEIR HOPES FOR YOU. IT IS LIKE, SOMEONE GIVING YOU A HUG. LETTING YOU KNOW THEY CARE ABOUT YOU. I CAN TELL YOU, IT HAS HELPED TO STRENGTHEN ME, TO REASSURE ME, LET ME KNOW I HAVE FRIENDS OUT THERE. emoticon

I've only recently taken up daily blogging, as I normally like to keep my thoughts private and don't really talk about myself a lot. I have to say though that doing a daily blog post, even a short one, has really amped up my motivation and helped me keep my goals in sight.

I have felt so on-track lately, and I think a lot of that has to do with sharing my experiences through blogging. Blogging on SP is also great because there are always at least a couple of people who stumble upon my blog and leave encouraging comments, which makes me feel even better about sharing my thoughts!

Blogging has been immensely useful to me; has it helped you stay on track?
