That is what is going through my head at this very moment as I try to figure out what a blog is. When I was first approached about writing a blog of my weight loss journey I thought to myself “are you crazy ? Who is going to want to hear your story of trying to lose weight once again”? You are the queen of dieting.
It is true, I have tried MANY diets and of course nothing has worked as you can see…
I have always found one reason or another to not stick with it. Whether it is the cost or that bag of Oreo’s calling my name. I am sure there are those who are thinking right now “what make’s you an expert on weight loss, especially when you have failed all the other diets you have tried?” Along with all these thoughts I am also telling myself there is no way you are going to write about your struggles to lose weight and get healthy. What if you gain, what will people say then???
The other more positive side of me is saying “Yes you can write this blog and use it to gain strength on this journey to better health. No you are not an expert on the subject, but you know what it is to be overweight and how that makes you feel. You know how it feels to need to lose a LARGE amount of weight and how scared you are to let others in on this journey.”
Well, I have decided to listen to my more positive side and write a blog for all to read. My goal with this weekly blog is to help myself stay focused and motivated on my journey to health. Hopefully some of you reading this will also find their strength and motivation to keep going. I am not going to call it a “diet” as it is so much more than that for me. It is a reclaiming of myself, a journey to find the me I feel has disappeared.
During the posts I will share my accomplishments and challenges along with recipes or tips that I have found worked for me. I would also encourage others to please leave comments about what they have found worked for them or just words of encouragement for everyone to use.
Along the way I hope my words may help others on their journey to health. So everyone climb aboard and we travel down this path to good health together.
