Ten Truths

Thank you for the simple support, Dawne (and so many others).

1. I am being a very poor weight loss blogger.
2. I have not responded to any comments or emails in weeks.
3. I currently feel largely disconnected from this online community and have barely been visiting other blogs.
4. I have allowed many unhealthy habits back into my life.
5. I don’t foresee these things improving drastically in the immediate future.
6. I am doing what I feel I need to because I must help myself before I can help others.
7. I still keep a daily journal which ensures that I am ever cognizant of my choices.
8. I record every scrap of food and every pathetic attempt at exercise without fail.
9. I have not shut down nor deserted my blog which, I know, many of my predecessors have.
10. I will persevere.

  1. YOU GO GIRL. :D


  2. Your truth is the one that matters, you are a very brave girl. Sharing the good and bad when you could have disappeared over the horizon in triumph. Your mojo will be back.

    Big Hugs


  3. Yours was the first weight loss blog I ever read and finally got me to get REAL with my attempts at losing. I started 2 months ago and have lost almost 20 lbs. So THANK YOU for inspiring others like myself! I have to be honest, I often read your posts but don´t comment regularly...after seeing some rather awful comments on here I feel terrible for you. But even though you´re going through a rough patch, it shows your commitment and determination at this... you´re being abused and you keep coming here and being honest. WOW 266, you´re a strong person and you´ll find the motivation again. Good luck! =)

  4. I think it's great that you keep posting and hang in there. The absolute worst thing to do is totally give up. As long as you post, it's not totally giving up, right?

    Here's to another day and better choices.

    Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Honesty with yourself is a must in order to make change for the better. And you have made huge changes happen. Through posts like this and the self motivation it should provide you those habitswhich have crept back in are certainly doomed to recede once again.


  6. I have faith that you can get back up on the wagon when you are ready. Thank you for your honesty. You know you will have supporters here no matter what, we just want you to be healthy and happy.

  7. Thank you for listing your truths my sweet friend. It's so good to hear from you...thank you for the comment this put a huge smile on my face. I'm glad you're not leaving us....I couldn't handle it!! Big Hugs :)

  8. Yeah...just hang in, blog when you feel like it and never quit the attention to it (good or bad). You're fine and we think you are great.

  9. Sometimes the motivation to do better can onoly be found within. I am sure that you will find it and keep moving in the right direction. This time of year can be very hard on people.

  10. I LOVE that you haven't shut down your blog. We'll see you through this 266!

  11. Amen to all of these comments. You are right to consistently food journal and weight-log. It is lack of consistency that gets to me, and a lot of us, so in that respect, you are stronger than us. However, while your preservation is vital to staying in the game, Please don't give in to the "New Years" bug that says you'll start again on Jan 1. Today is the only day that counts. Make today your best for you.

  12. The fact that you are still blogging and still journaling your eats/movements says a lot. You have not given up and that is what matters most.

    Keep your chin up. This is definitely a life style change and those are sometimes the hardest ones of all.

  13. I don't think that you're being a poor weight loss blogger. However, I just cannot help wondering what has happened in your life outside of this blog to make you step back in time to what looks like pretty emotional eating. It's been hard to come here and bear witness to you on this path away from good health.

    Aside from blogging, are you seeking any kind of help for whatever is going on in your life?

    Please know that I don't say this to be mean or judgmental. Even though we've never met in real life, I still worry about you and wish you only the best. Sending healing energy your way.

  14. I think we all go through tougher times in our life. I have been following your blog (albeit quietly) for some time and want you to know that you're an inspiration to many - don't beat yourself up about going through a more stressful time. Get through it the best way you know how, regroup and move on. Sending lots of good thoughts from Australia! :)

  15. We're supporting you and cheering you on. You CAN DO THIS!!!!
