Slacking on my blogging

Monday, July 06, 2009

I was doing so well posting a daily I am posting cause I realized it has been 4 days since my last one. I used to think that blogs were dumb. Why in the world would I want to write about my life for everyone else to see?? I thought writing in a journal was dumb too. It was just writing to myself and I thought it was doing nothing in terms of losing weight. What I have learned is that blogging makes the journaling part better cause I am writing about me and for me but allowing others to be there to comment on my life and support me. And knowing that others are reading, I feel like I must stay on track cause if I don't then everyone will know it. lol. The other thing I have learned is that when I consistently write/type in my blog, I am more aware of what makes me work, what makes me try harder, what makes me angry, and what I do with food and exercise in relation to it all. For me, this is a MAJOR thing. I need this. I need my blog. And so for me to be slacking means that I have to potential to slack in my diet and exercise. Which means I am too close to the edge. I must start blogging again, EVERY DAY. I know it is necessary for me, I know I need it to be successful on this journey and I know that I need all of you as well. So this is me saying I am getting that part back on track.

    Hey Cheryl,
    Glad to see you are getting back on track. You know we need you and you need us. Writing things down does seem to make you accountable. I think I made it through this holiday weekend with out gaining weight because I had people who would understand to talk about it to. So please keep on blogging I love reading them.

    Putting feelings down on "virtual" paper really helps me realize what I have been doing well and not so well. Just the process of writing it all down somehow organizes it all for me. So keep up your blogging, you will learn so much about yourself. emoticon

    I agree. You are a beautiful young woman and have a wonderful spirit. You owe this to yourself.

    Blogging always gives me that "a-ha" moment.
    Don't you just love it. On our journey to better health we get to make a new friend -- ourselves. It's someone that most of us lose touch with over the years because we put everyone else in front. So it's time that we put ourselves on the front burner.
