If you are one of the thousands of Americans trying to lose weight sometimes you may feel that you are facing the battle of weight loss on your own. Despite your best efforts to get them on board, your friends or family just may not share your desires for weight loss and living a healthy lifestyle. If you find yourself in this situation you may want to consider starting a weight loss blog. There are many reasons a weight loss blog could be a welcomed addition to your new healthy living routine.
Accountability- Nothing holds you more accountable then to place your goals out there for the entire world to see. The important thing is to remain honest. Sure your reader will not know if you are telling the truth when you say you lost ten lbs. that week when you really gained. However, it is important to keep it real. Keep in mind that your readers are more than likely experiencing the same trials and triumphs that you are. No one is going to judge you. If anything, you can let other bloggers know that they are not alone in their struggles.
2. Education- When you form connections with other healthy lifestyle bloggers you will learn quite an array of new information. Healthy Lifestyle Bloggers will share everything from weight loss tips, exercise techniques, to their favorite low calorie recipes.
3. Self-Reflection- Once you have kept your weight loss blog for a while you will be able to look back on your story. Reading much like a personal memoir, you will see all your triumphs, all your trials, and how you have struggled through to your success
4. Make Some Money- Through placement of ads on your blog you have the ability to make a little extra income each month. Do not think that you will get rich because you won’t. However it can give you a little extra money to help buy you that pair of skinny jeans you have wanted to buy yourself for when you reach your goal. If you do not feel comfortable placing ads on your blog this is optional. However, if you want to the option is available.
Weight loss is not an easy task. Not only does it take knowledge it takes will power. Start a weight loss blog today and join the helpful community of bloggers to cheer you on to your success.
