Coming Clean

So a while back, the Husband started something called Monday Weigh-in.  We're both overweight and thought that maybe other internet people could sympathize and help motivate us. 

I hid my cooperation on my other blog (which I think will just be a place for recipes from now on).  And apart from my whole "it doesn't really fit my other blog" excuse, I think I've been able to come clean with the reason.  And so I'll come clean with you.

It's pretty embarrassing for me to talk about my weight and body image issues.  And like lots of other chunks, I tend to deal with it by avoidance.

So, I'm going to be dealing with it though another denial process: humor!

I know, I know, it's still not emotionally healthy, but I think humor is one step closer to acceptance, don't you?

A few blogger friends from 20sb and I have created Blogging Blobs, an online support group without the support.  We'll each be posting about our experiences during the previous week, and mercilessly taunt each other about it.  Hopefully not enough to make anyone cry...too much.  Join in on the fun!

Monday: My handsome husband will be posting
Tuesday: Lily from Is it too early from a martini?
Wednesday: Lorraine from Late to the Party
Thursday: Bret from Slightly Disappointing
Friday: Yours truly

Join us for the get to know you posts this week and then for the real action next week!

There's another blogging website like that called Chunky Chicks that just got started from some friends of mine and I'm thinking about joining them...sigh.

That's great you guys can get together and support one another on a blog.

I love people from the blogging community joining together over a common subject. I started a collab blog too about the plight of the 20-something. Best of luck!
