Blogging For Weight Loss
If you are trying to lose weight, consider blogging about your journey. It can help give you accountability, and you may make some new friends along the way, too.
I Am A Weight Loss Blogger
I Confess My Overeating Sins Regularly
My name is Sharilee, and I am an overeater. No, I don't belong to an Overeaters Anonymous group, but I do confess my eating sins and victories on a regular basis. You see, I am a weight loss blogger. I blog about my weight loss on an almost daily basis. (Although I do go through spurts where I fail to blog for a while.)
My goal is to lose 100 pounds altogether. Sound intimidating? Well, maybe it does, but blogging about my journey has made it much less daunting. In fact, I have seen so many blogs of women trying to lose 60, or 80, or 100, or even 200 pounds that my weight loss goals no longer seem impossible or out of reach.
My weight loss blog is called 100togo. This is because I want to lose 100 pounds altogether, at least. I may choose to lose even more by the time I am done.

I Share My Progress
With Calories In And Calories Out
I started my blog, 100togo, over two years ago. When I started, it was the first time I had written anything online. I was thrilled to have even one reader! I started the blog as a personal journey to help me lose weight and I was not too concerned if anyone read it or not. For the most part, readers were just a bonus.
I let the blog go for over a year, without writing in it. I then started again a few months ago. I have written fairly regularly, with a few breaks here and there. I try to share my progress every week with some charts and analytics about calories in, and calories out. Keeping track of my calories helps me know how I am doing.
My weight loss blog has a few readers but it is primarily for me. Knowing I will be writing in there regularly helps keep on track. It doesn't mean that I have all of the weight loss thing conquered. It does mean that i have a place to honestly share my struggles and ideas in the journey.
