Blissful New 12 months to you all on this 4th day of 2022.
I’ve spent the previous couple of 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 cleansing and purging for the subsequent a number of days.
It occurs each January in preparation for a contemporary begin to the brand new 12 months. It’s at all times been therapeutic for me to bodily toss out the previous and welcome within the new, whether or not which means sorting by way of my sock drawer or cleansing out the freezer.
I like contemporary begins. I like wanting forward. I like switching issues up.
I like change.
I’ve at all times welcomed change. I get pleasure from day dreaming of what I see for myself, then making a plan of how I’ll make it occur. Typically I’m profitable and typically I fail, however I at all times study one thing about myself alongside the best way. I hope I at all times hold the need to study and develop, to have a good time my successes and settle for my failures as a part of the method of studying.
Might of 2021 was my 10 12 months anniversary of this weblog. I didn’t have a good time it. I let it go. I used to be feeling discouraged with myself on the time for not determining how one can do among the issues that I had needed to do with the weblog to make it higher, larger. I let that anniversary go as a result of I used to be extra targeted on what the weblog wasn’t as an alternative 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 at all times 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 handle a heavy matter with humor.
My first put up was Might 9, 2011.
That is day considered one of my weblog. It has taken me about six weeks to determine how one can do a weblog………most likely shouldn’t be admitting that? I hope by placing all of it on the market, I will attain my weight reduction aim with just a little humor, and hopefully encourage others to do the identical. I plan to weblog concerning 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 burden loss journey and the life-style change a bit extra pleasant! I hope you’ll observe me!
Whereas interested by what it had not develop into, (visions of detailed recipes with movies and how one can’s and thousands and thousands and thousands and thousands of followers that allowed me to rent a workers to run the weblog and Mike and I to retire on an island) I didn’t see that it was precisely what I meant or not 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.
I constructed relationships. I by no means even anticipated that. I developed Pen-Friends on the weblog! A few of these relationships at the moment are eternally associates 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 in a position to 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 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 provides me data. I’ve been in a position to 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, recognize 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 folks.
Who is aware of what this new chapter might deliver.
Whether or not you’ve been right here for assist 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 recognize you. I do know that taking the time to touch upon the weblog requires effort, and I can’t categorical how grateful I’m that so lots of you took the time to do this and join with me. I used to be at all times excited to learn and reply to the feedback you left over these 10 years.
My candy pal Diane mentioned to me…..”It’s a reward to know when it’s time to maneuver on”.
It’s time to transfer on. That is my last put up right here as I start a brand new chapter.
