This has got to be the bazillionth blog type deal I’ve created online. Most of em I forgot the passwords to and forgot about. Others I’ve rediscovered through the power of google (and can’t believe what I used to rant about). What brought my back here, was stumbling across a network of tumblr accounts dedicated to achieving goals, real time goals. It’s really hard to come across something on the internet about weight loss or a weight loss community thing that isn’t some gimmick or some computer generated crap, but just real people describing real experiences and celebrating their accomplishments.
Here, I will admit to my faults. Hopefully after some time, I can admit to my strengths. This is my first weakness.
I’ve dealt with weight issues, my WHOLE LIFE. Not just here and there, it’s been pretty consistent. There was a period of time when I was in high school that I dropped nearly a hundred pounds in a few months time. Totally the wrong way of doing things. I thought I had reached my “biggest point” then. I can say with all confidence that I have done so right now. I joined Weight Watchers and enjoyed it, but could not commit myself to the in person meetings or cost of the program. I own a treadmill, but it seems like we are opposite sides of a magnet when it comes to getting my butt on it.
My goal is to be healthy & confident. I don’t believe I have to be skinny to do so. I have no one to impress but myself. Fortunately, I have a very loving boyfriend who does not care about my size, but does support my goal to happiness. I do not feel right knowing that i am not giving 100% of myself to him, my job, my family… because I cannot even give 100% of me, to me. I look forward to learning and sharing so much, but now, I must try and jump over another obstacle of mine, sleep!
