Me, Myself and Blogger Fail

Yes, I'm a total blogger fail.

If you know me, you know I love blogging.  Well, I like to create blogs....keeping up with blogs - not so much.  I kid, I kid.  Seriously though.  I currently have 5 blogs!!!! Blogging is so much fun, when you have time to do it.   I started my first blog, Twilight Junkies Anonymous 5 years ago. Whoah! Time flies  Somehow, back then I had more time to create posts.  Time is a precious commodity these days.  Might have something to do with the fact that I have more demands put on me from my job than ever before. Well, since I have the day off today, I thought I'd resurrect this poor blog once again.  I started with giving the blog a new and improved look. :)

 If you can't laugh at yourself, right?

Where are you on this journey?  Well, is it really a journey?  A journey suggests a beginning and an end.  I don't think this ever ends.  It's more of an odyssey.....a quest.  I know some of us in this group can attest, that once you get to your goal, the next part of the odyssey begins.  Maintaining.  And that is lifelong.  I hope to get to that part of this quest someday. :)

It took me two years to lose 40 pounds.  I've been basically maintaining that loss for the past 18 months or so.  That's where I am stuck right now.  I feel like I'm in a rut.  How do I get motivated to continue?

The problem is, I look at myself some days and feel really good about how far I've come.  I was a size 18-20 and now I'm a 12-14.  That's big for me.  I think I look pretty decent.  Definitely an improvement from before.  And I get comfortable with that, and convince myself that this is fine and I don't really need to lose anymore weight.

Other days, I look at myself and think....UGH!  My thighs are awful, my butt is huge, my arms are flabby.  I really want to go and buy any clothes I want and feel good about how I look.  That's when I feel like I need to get back on track and get this train moving again. If I could lose 40 pounds, what's stopping me from losing 40 more?

The problem is, I alternate these two feelings from week to week.  I'm not motivated for a length of time long enough to make a change.  

I have no answers.  This is just where I'm at right now.  

The group on Facebook has been a fabulous inspiration and motivation.   Having all of you girls to support each other has been amazing.  This blog is for all you girls in the Facebook group too.  I hope that some of you will feel like creating a post someday for this blog. Sometimes you need a little more than just a Facebook post to say what you want to say.

So, the bottom line is.....I love this blog.  My heart desires to keep up with this blog, but I make no promises.  My life is busy.  I will try to post the weekly weigh ins.  If you notice, I added a survey in the sidebar where you can get in a quick and share your progress.

So stop by the blog when you can.  
Comment on a post.  
There's no point in my writing these posts if nobody reads them.
Write a post!  
I can help you with this if you need help.  The more the merrier!!!!
