I said goodbye today to a friend. Always there when I wanted to brag, always there when I needed support. But I have outgrown this friend, and, sitting there dejectedly, my friend suggested that I say farewell. And so I released my friend.
My weight loss blog is no more.
I did not make this decision lightly. Seeing it there, on my dashboard, was not motivating anymore. It was more a feeling of failure, that I had nothing to post. And it was the opposite of a challenge to do better. It made me feel worse and worse that I had stopped. I haven't given up hope, but so many things are taking my energy and my focus right now that I don't have any left over for myself in that area.
It is all I can do to get my shower some days, let alone think about what I manage to get into my mouth. And the stress of the last couple of weeks has set off a mild depression, the house is sinking slowly back into it's former non-glory and dinner is later and later. Weight loss was one more thing demanding my time and energy. So, in the interest of my mental health, I am putting it on the backburner for now. But not for good, just until things calm down and I am able to take the time for me..,.
