Gone public

Thursday, June 06, 2013

Well, I've done it! I've posted on Facebook how I am working on getting fit...I've committed to a 5K on 27 July and the Mud Hero on 11 Aug...I've gone beyond the private Facebook page I joined (8 of us, I seem to be one of the few who post) and stated publicly that I am focused on getting fit! It's scary...I am sure people are saying "again!?!" "She hasn't done it before but let's watch her try again"...and I know that isn't the case! I know my family and friends are supportive, but to say publicly like that makes me feel like I'm going to fail! That's why I kept it private...I wanted a fait accompli not a pathetic work in progress...but I posted because I'm not a pathetic work in progress! I am doing this, I am getting fit and I have specific goals to work towards and I want the world to know! Look at me! I'm doing it!

Still, the little voice in my head is squawking...but it's really little now, and a bigger voice is saying "it's ok, we are going to succeed and we will just keep trying, no matter how big or small our successes are, they are successes!" And the little voice will either join the choir or shut up! Lol! There we go, dancing in my head again! Going to get up and exercise before work! See you! (Keep moving!!!)

    I'm not on Facebook so I didn't have that to worry about. My weight loss was all for myself until people started to notice. That was actually very cool because then I knew I was looking better. Now people ask me for advice!

    I think you are taking a huge step sharing your goals. It may give you the extra motivation it takes! Whatever works, it's all good!
