Well, here goes ......

You finally got me - this is my first blog - ever! I had this silly idea that this is sort of like me sitting alone in a room talking to myself. But I keep reading SP articles about blogging and how it increases your accountability and also your weight loss, so I finally decided to try it. Don't get me wrong, I read lots of your blogs and can really relate to them. I just couldn't seem to get up the nerve to put that constant conversation I have going on in my head online.
I need the accountability - and support. I'm not gaining weight, I'm just not losing any. I'm stalled and I think the problem is between my ears. I need to reup my commitment and start moving forward again. I haven't gotten on the holiday track or anything, and I'm still tracking my food every day. Of course that's probably why I haven't gained.
I broke a toe this October and had to stop going to the gym. I couldn't get a shoe on or drive for a bit. That broke a bigger thing - my habit of going to the gym. By the time I could go back I let other activities get in the way. So now I've decided nothing will ever change if I don't. So here's my promise - I'm going back to the gym tomorrow afternoon - actually that's today - I just looked at the time.

    Blogging is a good way to hold YOURSELF accountable -- and, it's a good exercise in trasparency, vulnerability, and honesty. Glad to have you here!

    We all have those conversations going on in our heads. Sometimes it's good to hear feedback from other people.

    I'm always surprised how easy it is to fall out of a good habit. Yet it takes so long to break a bad one. Why?

    Great Goal of Going to the Gym! Go Girl Go!!
