I have avoided posting my weight on this site since I have seen it steadily increasing. I have been afraid of the repercussions of what people might say and the criticism that I might receive. Then I realized this morning that this was an old behavior. What am I accomplishing by hiding from everyone on this site? Nothing, except expanding my current weight and adding guilt to my already high stress life. I don't need that.
So I've decided that my weigh-ins and tapings will be on Saturdays, first thing in the morning. My goal for this month is to stick with that every Saturday. I will record good or bad, high or low. My goal is consistency.
I have read so many articles and motivational stories on this website. The "success" stories never seemed to mention how, or if, they ever fell down on their journey and how they got back up. I think it is great that people are succeeding. If I ever get to do one of the videos on the motivational page, I will include how I fell, probably several times, and how I picked myself back up and started walking my path again. Not everyone gets their "Ah-ha" moment right away. I'm still searching for mine and that's ok. I really look forward to being a success story.
