Hi, my name is Rebecca and I am a facebook-aholic.

Rather, I was. I found myself wasting too many days away scrolling my feed. Then I would "run out of time" to go to the gym. And then I would get disgusted at myself. I know I want to be my best possible me. I have been on this site for years (for the past year I have been bouncing back and forth between 50 and 60 pounds lost with a lot further to go), I have the tools, I have the knowledge... I also can make anything into an excuse to eat crappy and skip the gym.

I feel like facebook was one of those excuses for me. If I sat down and tried to figure out how much time I have spent on there in the past, well, since I have had it, I would probably be very disappointed. So, I deactivated it for now. And have myself convinced that I cannot reactivate until I have hit the 100 pound mark.

I deactivated a week ago yesterday and can genuinely tell you this past week has been sooo much richer.

I still have a desire to be social. I have started paying more attention to Instagram (truly, this is ok... I spend 5-10 minutes scrolling the feed and then move on with my life... NOTHING compared to how much time I spent on facebook). I have found that my favorite people to follow on Instagram (except for a select few celebrities) are people like me struggling through this journey. I love seeing your successes and relating to your bad days.

Sooo... if anyone has Instagram and would like to share this journey with me, my user name is rebeccabozung. Have an amazing day!!!
