Question and The Real Me

Hello all, I have a question? I have two blog spots and I thought 2 different site meters but the are getting the same hits? Any Ideas how to separate? Well anyway... as I was looking at my other blog I realized that I am never in any pictures, I am behind the camera. I know I do this on purpose due to my "Over Abundantness"(that's what I like to call it, sounds nicer :])Anywho...I know I need to face my first issue of being photographed so I can place the picture on my blog. I need to have a before picture and see myself(cringing at the thought)and so you can see me...the real me. The real me that has kept me from really having a real social life, the real me that is embarrassed of my appearance,the real me that dresses mostly in dark colors PRAYING to hide a few inches or pounds, the real me who tries not to think people are staring at me(Paranoid, like I'm that important)The real me that feels I have failed and disappointed myself and finally the real me that needs surgery to lose weight. This is only 1/2 of what I feel on a daily basis. No I'm not depressed... I'm just well...MORBIDLY OBESE!(I don't like that word) Now... Hows that for therapy :)


  1. I know it's rough to face the reality of what we have done to our bodies, but trust me, you will be GLAD to have those before pictures someday!!

    How about taking a few but telling yourself you DO NOT have to post them just yet? They're just to have for yourself. And then, once you have lost 20, you can take new ones and post them both to show your progress!

    Also I recommend doing some basic measurements with a measuring tape (upper arms, thighs, bust, waist, hips, neck) and writing them down so you can see how much you shrink, even if the scale doesn't show a lot at first.

    Good luck!

  2. As far as the separating blogs goes, I have NO idea.. sorry, I'm no help there.
    Yes, get lots of pictures. You will love seeing how far you have come and that's one of my regrets is that I have few "before" pictures. Also, take measurements.. those will have you in complete and utter AWE!!! :)

  3. I have two different ones, but I have no idea how I did it... maybe go back and check the rss code, and make sure that it's loaded into your blogger template correctly. They might have a help section that can help you.

    I say take the pictures, (front, back, sides) and then don't look at them again until you've been out of surgery for a couple of months. Take the same photos in the same place every month on the day that your surgery was... and believe me - you'll be speechless over the changes. Do take your measurements on the same days - because sometimes when you need encouragement that the scale isn't giving you - the measurements will show you just how far you've come. Email me, if you want... I have an excel program we use to keep our measurements/weight stuff.
