When I think about this blog, I always just assume that it will be here. It has been almost 3 years since I began writing it, at the time I began my journey to a healthier lifestyle. A lot has changed in my life since then, and I realize that I am 100 pounds lighter than I was when I started, at least in part, because of my blog and the people reading it. I also realize that in spite of my intense and consistent workouts, my weight hasn’t changed much in almost a year. And I maintain that I am pleased to have kept 100 pounds off since losing it, but I’m not sure what I have to offer here right now.
When I started this blog, it was all about me, and I wrote whatever I felt like writing because no one was reading it anyway. Now I know that people read it and that some of you take time to reach out regularly through comments and emails and tweets, and I appreciate it so much more than I could every convey with words. But I don’t know where to go from here.
Should I forget that people are reading and write whatever comes to mind regardless of the topic? Should I whine about why this has been more difficult in the last year than it was at first? Should I drone on about how terrifying it is to look at my overall goal? Should I keep posting weekly weigh-ins with tiny little decreases and gains hoping that the good will outweigh the bad? Should I just stop blogging?
I’ve always spilled my guts here. AndI can’t imagine not posting (almost) everyday. I can’t imagine not knowing the incredible people that I’ve met as a result. So I’m not saying goodbye…I couldn’t do that. I’m just not sure what to say exactly.
