On the Fence About Blogging and My Sparkpage

Wednesday, May 15, 2013

You may or may not have noticed I deleted a bunch of blogs and all pictures except one...and my old goals. My new goals are similar, but I thought I would wipe the slate clean and start fresh with a new page. Then I started reading some old blogs and found the information useful and motivational. I just stopped mid-purge. LOL

I feel like I really need to focus on the minimum necessary to achieve my goals right now or I will become overwhelmed.

Decisions, decisions.

    Me personally, I would say keep them. After all, your blog is for you, it is a great reflection tool. And if you are worried about what others think, remember many of us are trying to reach the same goal you are, better health.

    Blogging isn't something you have to do, or keep up, but when you do have something that has inspired or motivated you, it is a great place to share.

    I'm reading Richard Bernstein MD's "The DIABETES DIET" which isn't just for people who have diabetes, but he says that all obese people are INSULIN RESISTANT and can benefit from taking Metformin. He also talks about THE LAW OF SMALL NUMBERS which he says makes life easy to manage. The MORE of anything you add to a problem, the MORE DIFFICULT it gets to be to manage it.
    He uses the example of a road with six cars and the odds of having an accident. If you double the number to 12 cars, you don't just double the odds of an accident but it increases more. So, his point is to KEEP THINGS SIMPLE. You have the best idea in doing that. It makes it able to manage.

    I blog mainly for myself, so that I can look back and remember where I've been an how far I've come. Sometimes I struggle with the publicity of it all (especially when one of my posts was deemed "motivational" and I got 1000+ comments in a week).

    Starting with a clean slate is definitely good, but I agree that keeping old motivational blogs and photos is important. Sometimes we lose sight of what we were set out to accomplish because we pick up new ideas and goals along the way. Having reminders helps.

    Either way, the most important thing is that you're *here* and you're working to do what you have to do to be healthy! That's amazing!

    It's easy to become overwhelmed when we take on too much. Start slowly and don't add new goals or ideas until you're completely comfortable with working towards the ones you've set. You can do this!!!

    Good luck!

    I agree that focusing on a few things is better than trying to do everything. Keep your blogs that are motivational and inspiring though. It's good to re-visit ourselves through old blogs because we are amazing beings that forget how amazing we are.

    I think it is a good idea to start with a clean slate. also in your weight loss journey each day is a new chance to start anew.
