You Are Not Alone

One thing that helps with losing weight is listening to other people's weight loss stories. I am always on the lookout for sites with real life blogging, or posting about weight loss. It makes me feel not so alone, and also gives me clues about what works, and what doesn't. I think every dieter needs to feel like they're not alone, and that others are looking for the same answers, dealing with the same issues, having success, and even occasionally failure like everybody else. It brings the whole experience home. Websites that have a group of people together sharing stories, or forums that allows everyone to talk to each other are especially helpful. Dieting isn't any easier than it was 10 or 20 years ago, but the Internet has definitely made it more productive.
