I admire your courage.

I'm very open and candid about my weight and weight loss journey, even with strangers if they ask. I briefly considered vlogging, but when I saw the profanely disrespectful comments on weight loss vlogs (or even on non-weight related vlogs. I was shocked and horrified to see women demonstrating craft techniques like knitting or dollmaking getting slammed for their weight - and god forbid they demonstrate a recipe).

As confident as I think I am, I don't think I could open myself up to that kind of criticism. I'm not afraid to confront a face-to-face verbal assault, but I think I'd obsess for days over online negative commentary.
