Once again, I haven't been back here in a couple of months! Life isn't getting less busy.
I've been thinking a lot about blogging, but am realizing that it requires a lot of commitment. Time that I'm not sure I have right now. And really, if I'm going to spend whatever spare time I have (after work and looking after two kids) blogging, I should really be using it for exercising.
My problem is, I'm not disciplined! I sit down to read blogs, and the next thing I know I've spent an hour on facebook and twitter too. I am spending waaaaay too much time in front of this computer. It's addictive, without question.
I enjoy writing here. I enjoy reading. But I think I need to take an "official" break from it. If I do come back (which may be sooner than I think), I will probably start up a new blog altogether. I will post the link here.
Sigh. I've had this blog for almost five years now, which is amazing. In that time, I finished grad school, and had two kids. My weight hasn't changed much - in fact, I'm probably up by a 'net' 30 lbs! But when I think about where life has taken me, I wouldn't change it for the world. The weight, I can lose. I wouldn't want anything else to go away.
But now it's time for the next chapter. And maybe that's a new space to write about different things. Maybe it's a new weight loss journey. But I feel the need to start over.
If any of you are still reading this, I want to say, thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is really down to all of the encouragement that I got on here that I was able to pick myself up one some days. You've all inspired me so much. Ironically, I can't put it in words.
So here's goodbye for now. I'm fairly certain I'll start up again. But it'll be a reincarnated version of me. Hopefully very soon.
Keep strong and carry on! I hope all of you reach your goals. There's no better feeling than crossing a finish line. I hope when you get to yours, it's for good.
