New Weight Loss CommunityThere is no time like the present to get started, so here it goes.
After being on the net since 1996 (I believe) under the name "former fat guy", I finally launched a new version of my blog including an entire weight loss forum.
Formerfatguy.com has had a blogger blog, which you're reading now, included in my website and I've finally moved over to Wordpress to fully utilize it's features. Now, that blog is not here, but rather at www.formerfatguyblog.com, and with it, I finally made the jump to include an entire weight loss community forum in it.
I've set up some forums for discussion about various weight loss programs like Tom Venuto's Burn The Fat program, Harvey Diamond's Fit For Life book and food combining. Also some sections on popular weight loss methods like weight watchers, Sunrider, Isagenix and Herbalife.
I am working very hard at getting expert moderators in the specific forums such as Harvey Diamond for the Fit for Life forum. I'll let you know how it goes.
I think it's long overdue so I've been working the past few days to get it up (the website I mean), running and tweaked. It's still not perfect and will be a work in progress but I'm going to launch it anyway.
formerfatguyblog.com, the weight loss blog with community forum also features a link directory for bodybuilding, dieting, fitness, health, personal trainers, sports and of course weight loss. If you've got a website related to any of those topics, you can get your link listed in the dirctory.
I wanted a better way to interact with users, answer questions from community members for everyone else to benefit from, answer visitors emails and display the answers for everyone else to read and comment on and just basically harness the power of Wordpress.
Please go have a look at the new weight loss blog. I'll still be active here as well, but right now, I'm putting a lot more attention on the new one.
It's been tested about as much as I can test it from my end, but I'd love readers to go have a look around and let me know about anything they see that's unusual.
I have a request for a graphics designer to create a new logo for the blog and for the forum. If you know what you're doing with photoshop and have examples of your work, then contact me for a possible designer project.
PLEEEEZZZEEE make sure you register for the community. There's not much in there now as It's just been started, but I'd sure like some initial testers to register and post some threads about their weight loss success stories. I will begin to feature some select stories for that blog as well as this one. It's something I've wanted to do for a long time. Ah heck, there's a lot I've wanted to do with this website for along time and now I am able to in a much easier fashion.
I've also just posted my inaugural post entitled How I Lost 300 Pounds with subtitle my Weight Loss Story
