I haven't posted on this baby for quite some time. Because I have started and stopped and started and stopped so many times in the last six months--the story of my life, you know--I'm a bit hesitant about how I'm going to use this blog for my weight loss purposes. I feel like I have failed, but I haven't really. I have wasted my time, yes, but trying to move forward and act is a really great thing for me! I don't want to talk about the past, but I do want to learn from the struggles.
As I begin to work my program, I was tempted to give myself a grace period. I would get going in my plan for a few weeks and then start publishing my posts. But that doesn't really keep me accountable. And I need accountability -- to myself that I will post and track on this darn thing.
I find that I love it when people leave a comment on one of my posts. But I have also find myself too influenced by the words or tone or innuendo of many well intentioned comments. When people comment with words of encouragement, I feel like I am being too whimpy and whining. And when people call me out on my inability to act or my long-winded-ness, I take it too personally. I was tempted to start posting again and turn the comments off, just for a while. But no--comments are a good thing. I want to connect with others out there who are sharing their own weight loss journey. I want it to be about connection and communication and sharing information
So as I continue with my journey here, I am trying to really focus on my vision and how I want to proceed. It's about me right now, selfishly about me and what I am doing. So please leave a comment if my words reach you. And if I don't respond or reply to a comment right now, know that it's because I'm trying to focus on my own vision, my own acceptance of who I am and what I'm doing.
