Last week I received my first negative comment on a weight loss post. I deleted the comment, tried to block the person who posted it (someone I do not know) but could not access their profile. At first I let it slide, then it began to creep back into my mind and make me question having my journey posted on social media. I haven't posted anything in a week for this reason. I was seeing if taking a social media break would be a good thing.
Here is what I learned:
1. It was kind of nice to be free from having to post something inspirational or motivational because it's not always easy to be all sunshine and rainbows.
2. My absence of posts was noticed, especially by my students. It's feels good, and a little creepy, to know that others check in on my progress.
3. That freedom from posting allowed me to slip up and be lazy. I use social media to help keep me accountable. I might not always need it, but right now it helps push me to make better choices.
I am posting this side-by-side-by-side pic to remind myself how far I have come! Holy poop nuggets! I have worked hard and I AM PROUD OF MYSELF! I am so excited to see how much stronger and healthier I can be. I am going to continue to focus on ME and not let the negativity of others bring me down. I choose to keep spreading peace and love while fighting windmills (crushing my goals).
