I was recently asked by another blogger to write a guest blog about how I lost my weight (what’s gone so far, anyway). I said I would think about it, and maybe put some notes together.
Honestly, I feel like even though I’ve been on this weight loss adventure for years and have lost almost 90 lbs, I still don’t know enough about diet and exercise to help anyone else. Those 90 lbs have come off SLOWLY. The changes I’ve made have given me a vitality and newness of life, it’s true, but is that worth hollerin’ about? When I look at the health and fitness horizon and see how far I have to go, I think what on earth do I have to share with anyone else?
Maybe that’s just a cop-out, but that’s how I feel.
Here (on this blog), I feel like I get to hide from the public-which is kind of queer-because this is a public blog. But it’s not family public, or next-door-neighbor public, or the-person-down-the-pew public. You know what I mean?
Over the next few days I need to decide what I want to share, if anything. Anonymity is precious, but is it time to step out and talk about my experience now?
Maybe the better question is, will it help anyone to hear what I’ve done, and do now, to grab the brass ring that is health?
I have a lot to ponder and a decision to make. Looking for insight and the right words to share, if any. Trusting they will come, if this is meant to be.
