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.
