The number in my headline is how many hits this blog generated in its first year. I started this blog on January 9, 2009. Each month, my numbers keep getting higher and higher. In my first month – from January 9 through January 31 of 2009 – I received 1,927. In my last month of this year – from December 1 through December 31 – my blog received 12,907 hits.

Wow! is about all I can say. It has been kind of a shock and awe year as I watch my numbers increase month by month.

As much as I love the fact that my numbers are increasing, I have to say that honestly, I am perplexed by it. I don’t get it. Why do people want to read this blog? I am just an ordinary woman who struggles with food and weight issues – just like hundreds, or probably thousands, of other women. I just happen to share it with whomever wants to read it.

I am asking all of you who read this blog to fill me in. Please. Why do you read Confessions of a Fat Girl? What is it about this blog that interests you?

Also, is there anything you want to know that maybe I don’t write about – as far as my weight, my eating or exercise habits, my struggles, my slip-ups, etc.? Are there topics you want me to tackle?

I am thankful and very grateful for everyone who reads my blog, I would just like to know why? Any comments would be greatly appreciated. For those who don’t want to post their comments for everyone to see, please feel free to send me an e-mail at celbeam@gmail.com.
Also, if you are on Facebook, Confessions of a Fat Girl now has a page…feel free to become a fan!

  1. I read because as a current Weight Watchers lifetime member myself, who has fallen off the wagon and had to get back on (more than once), it is nice to hear about other people who are going through the same stuff. Everyone has different tips and tricks and I think people can learn a lot from each other to hopefully find their own success.


  2. I found your blog not that long ago, and I have to say that I appreciate your sense of humor as well as your human ability to make mistakes. As a woman who has battled with weight issues for my entire adult life, I have to say I’ve been there, I’m still there, and will always be there. I’ve made a pledge to be a healthier me this year, and though that means I will have my slip ups, you give great inspiration in your human ability to admit you slip up and don’t beat yourself up over it. Kudos to you! 🙂


  3. I find this blog so interesting because your life fighting the battle is so similar to mine. It makes me feel like I am not the only one who struggles everyday to keep it off. I could have written many of your entries. Thanks for making me feel like I have someone who knows exactly what I am going through.


  4. I read because of the way you keep it real. Although my weight battles really only started mid-age, I have begun to worry more about my health in relation to the added pounds. It is tough to be consistent in getting it off. Reading through your blogs, I’ve picked up tips and I hope to eventually be as consistent as you in the fight. I see how great you look and what a fight its been and I realize when I fall down I can get back up! Keep up the great work!
