Hack my blog???

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created December 04, 2011 at 3:34 PM

For everyone who has frequently seen my million questions about fat loss/paleo diet...I have started a blog and I would really appreciate everyones input on the paleo nutrition pages...and then offer more suggestions and advice as I post my progress/problems etc. I feel like something like this is really going to require support from people who have been "there" and understand the struggle that is involved in finally seeing progress, becoming happy with yourself and thriving.

Please hack my blog!

...and then offer any and all bits of help/tips/etc.!

Totally agree. I'm not trying to be unkind, but this is definitely not a blog I would spend time on. It's just too negative. You are far from fat and your intense self-loathing is pretty disturbing. Avoiding events because you are a few pounds heavier than you'd like to be is a big eating disorder warning sign. I'm not a professional, so I would never presume to diagnose what's going on here, but I think you would derive great benefit from some time spent with a professional counselor who is knowledgeable about eating disorders. Your college probably has one available you can see at no cost.

Right on. With respect, Michelle, your blog is very negative. I doubt many people want to stick with a blog that has that overall perspective. Just my opinion. Not trying to be mean about it.

Ur...the typeface is OK for headings, but almost unreadable for large chunks of text.

It would be easier if you posted the URL. ;)

There's a lot of disgust and self-hatred in your text that I find concerning.

I mean please, you are not fat! Slightly out of shape maybe but that 'stomach' you refer to would be largely eliminated by a good posture, hands on hips and a beaming smile!

I read in a diet book a long time ago and I think this is very true:

"You can only permanently change your body from a point of self-acceptance and self-love, self-hatred is a very short term motivator and will falter at the least provocation"

[I'm paraphrasing]

So maybe focus on getting into the right 'head-space' before you embark on another gruelling regime that will be unsustainable.

Bottom line: GO EASY ON YOURSELF! You are in a place where a lot of people would consider themselves at goal, celebrate THAT!

Well, if the goal of your blog is to be honest about where you're at, and reach out for support, then you seem to have accomplished that....I read it and just wanted to give you a big hug and tell you that you're beautiful, and that I've been where you're at, and I wish someone could have conveyed to me then what a profound waste of my talents and energy it was to be a focus so much negativity on myself for so many years, to feel like my only worth as a woman is to be beautiful by society's standards, and therefore to feel like a failure at life...I deserved more than that prison, and so do you...so does every woman...

Today is a perfect day for a restart!!!!!! I think you need to be nicer to yourself. Concentrate on what is going well in your life, too.

I'd love to read your blog and I mean this respectfully, but I cannot read it because the combination of color and font gives me instant eye pain. I'm not sure why, but if you would consider going to a darker font color, or a different font altogether, I'd be happy to try again.

Good luck in your venture!
