    Im wondering if its just me?

    Loads of people now are commenting on my weight & are quite surprised Im not going to classes. Id started saying that I was doing it myself with the help of a weight loss forum, but then people started asking 'Oh which one' and commenting it sounded a great idea.

    I got very evasive and non commital. I dont want my colleagues from work coming on here and reading my diary & seeing a lot of my posts! Is that really selfish? Should I be helping them regardless??

    Dont get me wrong I actively encouraged my best pal to join & my closest friend has the URL of my diary and he reads it regularly. I just dont feel comfortable having my colleagues and acquantances coming on here and seeing me 'laid bare' so to speak.

    i dont think so at all.. i searchd my email address is google.. (cos im sad like that).. and it was linked to the DH and here.. so i got rid of my email on both.. lol.. i guess i write here.. and i dont need that part of my life reading my thoughts.. if you get me?

    i dont think its bad at all.. they're two sections of your life.. and they're different.. you know..

    Totally agree.....you need to be able to really express yourself on here...and having work colleagues viewing your intimate feeling around food and diet - isnt on! Feel the same as you guys......

    I would be the same if asked, I'd just say 'forgot the name, sorry!'
    i mean if they found you then chances are very high they want to lose weight too, so that is fair enough, but I think you could do without thinking that everypost you make is going to be spied on in effect.
    i know this is public, but it's kind of secret at the same time I think.

    I understand where you are coming from. My workmates and my boss know I go on meets with people from off the t'interweb but I value my privacy too much to let anyone I know I'm on here! You are all friends separate to my other friends!

    I am new here and need this to be anonymous - i have tried so many times to diet i just dont want people judging me.
    The beauty of the web is it can be so anonymous yet friendly and personal - if you get what i mean!! :)
