Operation Skinny Cow

A few of us were having a discussion over at Hippomanic Jen's blog and other blogs (here and here) about our efforts to lose a bit of weight.  We thought it might be a good idea to start a little support and encouragement blog, so here it is - Operation Skinny Cow.

So here's the deal - if you want to be involved I can set you up as an author on the blog, which means you'll be able to post.  I haven't quite worked out the details fully but I thought maybe we could agree to post weekly (although more if you want) to give an update on how you're going, what's been good, what's been hard and how you're feeling.  We might also have Weigh-In Wednesday, where we weigh ourselves at home and IF WE WANT we can share... eg, "I lost a kilo this week" or "I didn't lose anything" or "I'm not telling you the result of the weigh in but I'm depressed and want to eat chocolate so please post some comments and encourage me!"  Remember that no one needs to know what you weigh. You can share as little or as much as you like.

Anyway, if you think you'd like to be involved in this, or you have some ideas, please e-mail me at swellen1970[at]gmail[dot]com.  If you want to be an author I'll need the e-mail address you use to log in to Blogger or your blog.

Disclaimer: Operation Skinny Cow is not here to provide dieting, nutrition or medical advice. It is for informal support only, and you should not start any diet or exercise program without medical advice.  Also, don't talk to strangers.  And don't make that face - do you want the wind to change?

Thats a great idea. How do I say I really don't need to loose weight without being hated? I just need to tone up a bit, get some spanx undies, and eat less sugar. But I think its a great idea and am showing my support.
Good luck!

We won't hate you Dee! And you're welcome to join the blog. You can have a fitness goal, not just a weight loss goal.
