I don't appreciate the time necessary to keep a blog. I understand and see that tracking food and activity keeps me honest. I know research shows people who do this are more likely to maintain positive lifestyle changes. Research also shows a positive correlation for keeping a diary or blog and maintaining lifestyle changes, but for me the connection seems more tenuous. Is it really cause and effect? Or is it indicative of a multitude of healthy lifestyle changes?
I do suspect that blogging in particular is fostering a simple support system, although it would probably help if people could get more points for posting on message boards and commenting on blogs, because it would encourage more communication and trigger more support and encouragement.
Just my thoughts for the day.
