Blogging for me has been a great way to express my feelings regarding loosing weight & all the things that go with it. At first I was a little timid about it, but this has helped me on my weight loss journey alot.
i care about my pounds i gain and lose. i lost some fat by dancing to michael jackson. i never knew who he was before he had died. but the first song i heard of his is "thriller" i fell in love with him. i know almost all his songs and i dance to it. like "billie jean" and "Smooth crimanal". its a wonderful cardio exercise. i was about 164 pounds, now im 157. plus i danced mj at a holloween party, everyone said you are amazing! i practice like crazy, and i lose wait!
I thought I would read this in case I missed something :) I've been blogging for a long time on SparkPeople and it has helped me so much. I've made so many friends and received a lot of support that I would never have had. Plus it's just a great place to say anything that's on my mind that day. Now I find it's my place to catch up with people and let them know what I'm up to, whether it's my eating and exercise, my struggles, my wins and successes, or just my daily tirade of something that happened. Blogging is all about connecting with others! It's great and it really does help!

I somtimes feel like there is nothing else to do but eat i hurt all the time (I have chronic back pain & Rh) sometimes I feel like doing walking but cant go far this stupied back of mine thinks its 99 lol but I manage to make it to the kitchen . I have lost 60 pounds so far with the lap ban now its a matter of eatting better and excersizing easy to say but soooo hard to do , I start off great and then come dinner or before bed and I dont make it . I am thinking this might help , I will keep trying ! I hope I never give up
I enjoy writing. Therefore, it would stand to reason that I would enjoy blogging. That is true up to a point. I find that once I get started I feel that I must blog; it is my "duty"; it is my "responsibility." That, of course, defeats the purpose of blog writing.
I have now decided to blog only when I feel like it...not as a discipline or responsibility because it isn't. I don't know if anyone else has cornered him/herself in this fashion, but I would like to know.

I still have problems understanding the difference in "blogging", journaling, posting to a community journal, posting to the message boards and various other opportunities on Spark to post "how you are feeling, doing?" It seems like there are too many options.
I remember when I first heard the word "blog". I asked my DIL what it meant and she had never heard it even though she worked for IBM over 20 years. Of course, she is in law and not reading blogs every day. I enjoy some blogs but just don't have time to read all of them. Maybe one day I will get started, but for now the journal is sufficient.
Great article. Blogs are "all about ME" but that is why I read so many of them, because SPARKERS pour their hearts out and I love to let them know that I really care. I make SHORT comments most of the time, since I know that they are not really wanting an answer, but just to know that others are sharing their experience.
