Fortune Favors the Brave

I've recently received a few emails asking "how do I search this blog to find recipes?" and "where can I find specific weekly weigh-ins?" and "where are your 'before' photos?", etc.  Thank you, dear readers, for your notes and helping me awaken to the fact that this is a public forum.  I now realize that Smaller Sarah needs a higher level of organization and accessibility.  I've heard the call!

It's time to be brave and put it all out there!  As you can see, I've already made some cosmetic changes to my blog.   I've changed the banner, added a current photo in the side bar, and included a search engine just above the "pounds lost" count.  I have been reluctant (and nervous and embarrassed) to do this, but you can now find my 'before' photo (gasp!) in the Photos tab in the tool bar at the top of the page.  You'll also find two new tabs, Recipes and Weigh-Ins, in the tool bar above.  Those are currently under construction and will soon have working links to the recipes I've tried out and loved as well as links to the weekly weigh-ins.  I hope that you like the new look.  Please please comment below and let me know what you think.  I want to hear exactly what you like and, just as important, what you don't like.  Thanks as always for being such wonderful readers and participants on this crazy journey.  Becoming a smaller version of myself has been made easier and more fun because of YOU!  I so appreciate it!

The new look is outstanding. And you are brave to be so forthright about all this in cyberspace! The list of weeks and pounds lost requires a medal!! 34 wks/47 lbs - fantabulous!

I like the new format a lot. It's neat that the content has the same good vibe even though the outer shell is changing. ;)

I love the changes too! I have to say--going over and looking at your weigh-ins makes me feel a lot better. I saw that there were weeks where you didn't lose a pound that week. It makes me feel good to know that I'm not the only one that has weeks like that.

Yep - there are lots of weeks where I don't lose a pound and there are some weeks when I gain a pound. But I comfort myself with the knowledge that I'm in it for the long haul. We're trying to create a better life rather than trying to win a weight loss contest. It's always helpful to keep the big picture in mind!
