My Blog Has a Sister

I struggled a lot with the idea of how to deal with making this blog stay true to its purpose, while not forcing myself to avoid writing about a big part of my life right now (my weight loss efforts).  I thought I would just find a way to incorporate the weight loss discussions and updates into this blog...but it just never felt right.  So, I've officially started a "sister" blog to this one.  You can find it at  That blog will deal with all of my "weighty issues" while this one can remain my place for reflection on infertility, motherhood, etc.  It isn't easy for me putting my dirty obesity laundry out there for the world to see, but it needed to be done.  I'm tired of hiding from the obesity issue...just as I was tired of hiding from my feelings about infertility a year ago.  Blogging was my life saver during my IF journey.  I'm hoping it can play the same role in my weight loss journey.  Please don't feel obligated to go check it out.  I'm still going to be writing on here, and I'm guessing that reading my weight loss blog would be on the same excitement level as watching paint dry.  But, if you do decide to check it out and even comment, I only ask that you not reference this blog.  I feel like my friends and followers on this blog "get it."  I would hate for anyone just stumbling across this blog because of a cross-reference from my other one to make me lose the safety, security and support I feel from this blog.  Thanks, Ladies.

P.S.  I just have to say, as I am writing this Ian is picking his nose in his sleep...and it's cute!   I swear to God, having a child makes your brain turn to mush.  I better go before he wakes himself up or, worse, hurts himself.
