I am not a blogger, I use the blogs for myself and my journey weight loss is why I post and I try to every day, because that is how I am accountable for me.

When I read others what captures me is the title of the blogs.. sometimes its shorter or sometimes its longer.. It depends on the subject for me and the mood that I am in at the time of reading someone else's blogs..

With my blogs I hope to help motivate and share my experiences on what I have learned to get where I am now with my 55lb weight loss.. I still have so much more to go though, and that is where I seek others for motivation.

I find the longer posters really put feelings and more detail.. I can read a whole blog and find only one or two sentences of that one particular blog hit me to what I needed to hear for the day. I think it depends on the person

Some people find that long posts/blogs, even without much content, to be very beneficial emotionally, and the same goes for short ones. I don't see that it is for us to second-guess what a person has written what/how they have (altho' I am sure a lot of us DO second-guess, me included). It boils down to choice - do we choose to write a long blog about something/nothing, or a short one with the same content? Do we choose to READ a long blog about something/nothing, or a short one, again with the same content.

If you read posts/blogs to learn and equip yourself to loose weight and improve your health, there is more helpful information in a long messages/article, although there can be helpful small tid-bits in short messages!

If you are simply jumping into a blog to grab and go to play the Spark Point game! Any size blog can work because reading the blog isn't required to get points! Just post a simple all purpose response like emoticon .

If you are in a hurry because you have so much on your agenda, It might be helpful to prioritize what is important! Maybe reading a long informative message really isn't worth your effort!

You are in control and what you get out of something is equal to what you put into it!

The race to fitness is unending for when you reach your goals, it becomes a race to stay ahead of the temptations that seek to pull back to where you came from!
