I Hate to Blog

Friday, June 01, 2012

Truthfully, I hate to write down anything. I always said that I never wanted a written account of my thoughts because I would be afraid they'd end up in the local newspaper and I'd be embarrassed when I became a famous movie star. Well, I'm not a famous movie star so I might as well start blogging.

After reflecting long and hard, there are a lot of reasons I don't want to journal or blog. I don't want to be accountable for what I wrote. If I write something down then I have to change and I hate change. But I really have to change those eating habits and look at the real reason I just can't stick to the process of healthy eating and then losing weight.

I have struggled with my weight my entire life and in fact lost 80 lbs. over 30 years ago. It has taken me 30 yrs to regain each and every pound.

Next I have struggled to get healthy with my life. I stopped drinking. I have stopped smoking. I have stopped eating a lot of unhealthy foods. I haven't stopped my addiction to sweets and eating when stressed or bored.

There, now I have said it. Now all I have to do is hit the "post blog entry button" Not so bad to push that button, but awful to read my words.

    Wow, that's honest: "I don't want to be accountable for what I wrote." There's a title for a blog all by itself!

    Congratulations on starting your first blog. I hope that writing things down can help you to work through them, or at least get some ideas from others who are going through the same issues.

    Next week's class is on the top 10 strategies for reaching your goals. And guess what's number 2....

    It really does help - keep it honest, and watch what blooms from it :)

    I can't stand blogging either. I'm glad you were able to do it. It's because of you and others that I'm able to read your topics and simply make a comment instead of trying to think up of something interesting to say. Nonetheless, I just wanted to say that and I identify with a few of your stuggles. Keep fighting. I've yo-yo dieted for at least 15 years. I've really slacked off on my exercise and eating habits for the past year. So far, I've improved my eating lately, but I haven't gotten off my butt to go exercise consistently. I guess I gotta keep fighting. :-)

    Blogging is get, once you get use to it. You can also keep you sparkpage closed to people who are not your friends. But you should get some SP friends before you do that. This way you can have support other wise no one can see your blog posts.
    Also when someone comments on your blog it is better to go to their page to comment back, that way they are sure to see it. just thought id help out. WTG in getting your first blog post done!

    Also be sure to join a spark group that suits you as you will find all kinds of people and support!
