    I am thinking of starting a blog that talks about my transformation. Not from the external physical side (although that will be a part of it), but from the internal side.

    I've been very open about my weight loss journal on facebook, so it would likely be an extension of that.


    The second leg of the journey - adjusting to this new person in the mirror.

    Good idea/Bad idea??????

    Starting a blog is a personal decision. There's no "good or bad idea" about it. You blog for your sake, mostly; unless you're looking to capitalize on some sort of social media phenomenon. There are blogs about far more trivial things online than a journey of self-discovery and transformation. If you think it will be helpful for you and other people, why not?

    I'd agree. If you are doing it looking for feedback and/or validation be prepared to do a lot of work promoting it. But if it helps you to put your thoughts down "on paper" it can be rewarding. I have kept one in various forms since 1998 or so and love to look back at it to help track my progress.
