Haven't blogged in a long time

Saturday, May 11, 2013

I have a hard time blogging I am not sure what to say or what to talk about. I have been doing very very well with the help of Sparkpeople and all the little motivational blogs I have a hard time letting people know (I feel like I am bragging and that was always a sign that I was selfish). I am not being selfish I have lost a total of 37lbs since the middle of September. That is an amazing feet for me. I thought I was going to be FAT for the rest of my life. I still see myself at 191 and when I go clothes shopping (because all my summer clothes are huge) I still grab bigger sizes and I am shocked that I need a size 10. I never would of been able to do this if I didn't find Sparkpeople.

My journey has been awesome, there were great mountains that I had to climb, and paths that I strolled by just admiring the scenery. But I have enjoyed every single minute of it. I can not wait to see what is still ahead of me on his journey I still have about 15 more pounds to loose, and I know you all will be there to help me through it as I will be there for all of you. You are my skates on a downhill path. Thanks fellow Sparks. emoticon emoticon

    Don't be afraid to share. Think about the kind of blogs you like to read.

For me, I like to read the ones that share what is REALLY going on on the journey. I don't care if the journey resembles mine, I always find something interesting to reflect on that helps me understand something I'm dealing with now, an unsolved mystery, or i file it away for future reference. I'm doing that now with ideas for maintenance. Still a ways to go but that is now my source for nightmares, since I've never been successful with maintaining weight loss.

For me for writing blogs, some are just a recording of what's happening on this journey. Some record, or advertise, my progress on working to change to new habits, partly to hold me accountable, but also to have a record later. And other blogs are sharing some neon-bulb flashing insight which has just hit me that just might benefit someone else. I stifle thoughts that everyone else probably already knows that. But then I remember that it was something I didn't know or understand about the journey or myself, and that means that there is someone else coming along who HASN'T figured it out yet.

An then there are the rants about what the food manufacturers and advertisers are doing to all of us, but especially, ME!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about your body image still being back at the old weight. I have a little bit different problem, and I wrote a recent blog about it, also. I've lost 55 pounds and I can pick out something that fits my frame by looking at it on the hangar in the store. But sitting here in the chair working on my laptop, I still FEEL physically the same size as I was last August before any weight loss.

That "bragging" you're worried about is a well-earned right. I think it's a required part of the process of beginning to recognize the new you.
