A New Starting – The Weight of My Weight

Pleased New Yr to you all on this 4th day of 2022.

I’ve spent the previous few days cleansing, organizing, purging……dresser drawers, junk drawers, closets, the fridge/freezer and the pantry. Just about any house I encounter will get consideration of a superb cleansing and purging for the following a number of days.

It occurs each January in preparation for a contemporary begin to the brand new 12 months. It’s all the time been therapeutic for me to bodily toss out the outdated and welcome within the new, whether or not meaning sorting by means of my sock drawer or cleansing out the freezer.

I like contemporary begins. I like trying forward. I like switching issues up.

I like change.

I’ve all the time welcomed change. I take pleasure in day dreaming of what I see for myself, then making a plan of how I’ll make it occur. Generally I’m profitable and typically I fail, however I all the time study one thing about myself alongside the way in which. I hope I all the time maintain the will to study and develop, to have a good time my successes and settle for my failures as a part of the method of studying.

Could of 2021 was my 10 12 months anniversary of this weblog. I didn’t have a good time it. I let it cross. I used to be feeling discouraged with myself on the time for not determining do among the issues that I had needed to do with the weblog to make it higher, greater. I let that anniversary go as a result of I used to be extra centered on what the weblog wasn’t as a substitute of specializing in what it was.

The weblog has been precisely what I needed it to be from the start and by some means I ignored that.

I got here up with the title The Weight of my Weight with out a lot thought. My weight had all the time weighed heavy on my thoughts. I wanted to speak about it.

The tagline additionally got here fast to me….It’s a Heavy Topic, I’m Lightening it Up a Bit.

I needed to deal with a heavy matter with humor.

My first submit was Could 9, 2011.

The Starting

That is day one in every of my weblog. It has taken me about six weeks to determine do a weblog………in all probability shouldn’t be admitting that? I hope by placing all of it on the market, I can attain my weight reduction aim with a little bit humor, and hopefully encourage others to do the identical. I plan to weblog in regards to the meals I eat, my excercise routine, my temper and the way it impacts my weight reduction, and recipes I’ve discovered that make the load loss journey and the life-style change a bit extra gratifying! I hope you’ll comply with me!

Whereas excited about what it had not turn into, (visions of detailed recipes with movies and ’s and hundreds of thousands and hundreds of thousands of followers that allowed me to rent a employees to run the weblog and Mike and I to retire on an island) I didn’t see that it was precisely what I supposed it’s. A spot the place I shared my meals, my train, my temper and my weight reduction and hopefully inspired others in their very own well being journey.

I did that. I achieved what I got down to do. I reached my aim.

Past that?

I constructed relationships. I by no means even anticipated that. I developed Pen-Friends on the weblog! A few of these relationships are actually ceaselessly pals that I by no means would have met in any other case.

Not solely have I shared my very own well being journey, I’ve been capable of share our rising household, the joy of being employed by WW, the foolish initiatives I give you round the home, the dream of shopping for Effie and making her my very own and my most cancers analysis and the journey that adopted.

Now, “The Weight of my Weight” is now not a “Heavy Topic” prefer it was 10 years in the past, 20 years in the past, 30 years in the past. Now my weight is just a quantity that offers me info. I’ve been capable of study that within the work that I’ve put into myself over the past 10 years.

Now my well being journey is about….

How I select to nourish my physique, transfer my physique, respect my physique and present my physique love.

It’s time to finish this chapter and start a brand new one.

Possibly I’ll begin a brand new weblog as I enterprise out in Effie and face my fears and study new issues and meet attention-grabbing individuals.

Who is aware of what this new chapter could deliver.

Whether or not you’ve been right here for help by yourself well being journey, otherwise you felt a connection in your story and my story, otherwise you’ve caught round to see what shenanigans I’ve been as much as, I so respect you. I do know that taking the time to touch upon the weblog requires effort, and I cannot specific how grateful I’m that so a lot of you took the time to do this and join with me. I used to be all the time excited to learn and reply to the feedback you left over these 10 years.

My candy pal Diane stated to me…..”It’s a reward to know when it’s time to maneuver on”.

It’s time to transfer on. That is my remaining submit right here as I start a brand new chapter.

Thanks all a lot for following!
