The Blog as Self-Reflection

Thursday, September 22, 2011

Blogging tells the tale of my weight loss - mostly the challenges. It's incredible to look back and see that I have mostly blogged about the hidden challenges that I faced from day to day. I appreciate the running record of all of the reasons that I have ups and downs on the scale. It helps me to be more understanding of myself. And, it helps me to realize just how difficult it is to lose weight.

I always say that I'm not an emotional eater BUT as I look back through my entries, I realize that my ability to cook and eat healthily is really affected by my emotions. When life gets "like that" I usually feel extremely tired - too tired to cook a healthy meal!! I live alone so it is impossible for me to know whether or not I would eat a healthy meal, if it was prepared for me. What I do know, is that I don't usually want to choose something healthy.

Although I often think that I don't have a good topic when I log in to write my blog. It's amazing how much I have learned about myself from showing up here to write on a pretty consistent basis.
