A small change in direction

I wanted to start this post with some brilliant observation about life that would completely sum up the last few months in a sentence or two, and thereby relieve me of the need to explain why I haven’t posted much recently. Unfortunately, brilliance is missing from my brain this morning, and instead, I’m just left with the explanation, and an apology.

When I started this blog, I’d wanted it to be a place where all sorts of weight-related ideas and issues could be explored. But before that, I’d also wanted the blog to be a record in a way, of my own journey. Don’t worry – I know full-well what a blog cliche that is. 🙂 For me, however, my own journey is really where all the other stuff comes from. I have a weight problem, and in an attempt to conquer it, I have tried to learn as much about it as possible. Wanting to share what I learned was an automatic next-step for me. (more…)

Brief Interlude

Dear Community

Happy New Year!

My apologies to you all for the unscheduled break in transmission. Real life has a marvellous way of interrupting you, just when things are getting interesting.

And of course, there was all the Christmas festivities and … well, you know how it goes.

Anyway, I have a long list of what I hope are interesting, helpful, practical and exciting posts headed your way.

In the coming weeks, I’ll be posting about companion websites this this blog, some new scientific research on obesity, a few things about exercise that you probably don’t know, and the long-promised story of how I came to be writing this blog in the first place.

So please stay tuned. We’re just getting started!

Facebook Page

Flushed with success at my mastery of technology (okay, stop laughing!) I’ve created a Facebook page for discussions, posts and other related stuff as I think of it. Just click on the Like button on the right and – assuming I’ve set it up right – something will happen. I’m not entirely sure what, but I’m pretty certain it won’t signal nuclear Armageddon, so you’re pretty safe.

Official Launch

I’m thrilled to announce that A Big Beautiful World is finally, officially launched!

This site is something that I’ve been thinking about and working towards for a number of years. It’s taken a long time to work out just how to put it all together. But now, here we are at last!

Coming soon will be guest posts from a nutritionist, a personal trainer and a psychologist – to name just a few. We’re covering all sorts of ground here, so I hope you come back often. You can even click on the RSS button at the top right to get our daily feed delivered to your reader.

And don’t forget – we welcome your input and feedback, especially your comments on my posts. If you have any suggestions, or have a story to tell me, a great resource you’d like me to add into the site, please just use the Contact section.

In the meantime, please look around.

Launch Date Announcement

I’m very excited to announce that the launch date for A Big Beautiful World will be  Wednesday, August 11, 2010!

Lots of work is going on behind the scenes to bring you a fantastic resource here at A Big Beautiful World – so I hope you can come back soon and take a look.

Put that date in your diary!

The Shape of Things to Come

Hello there!

Right now, there’s nothing much here for you to see. That’s because there’s a lot of work being done behind the scenes to prepare the best, most helpful and real material for you.

There’s a lot to look forward to.

Here at A Big Beautiful World, you will find all kinds of resources, information, contacts and help. We are all about providing understanding, support and solutions for people living with weight issues.

Sick of being judged? Fed up with people being rude about your weight? Tired of feeling so bad about yourself that you can hardly get out of bed in the morning? You won’t get any of that here.

What you will get is support. We welcome you here with our arms open. We accept you just as you are and we will always be understanding, no matter what. We’re here to help you – not criticise you. You’ve had plenty of that already.

So please come back soon. A launch date will be set by 7 August, 2010. In the meantime, spread the word about us. We can’t wait to get to know you.
