I’ve tried to come up with ideas how to begin this new site but I’m not going to try harder anymore. It’s 2018, a new year, and it’s filled with possibilities. Well, at least in the next 12 months. Let it be known that this site has been my 6th attempt to creating a weight loss blog site. The previous sites end up with blank pages, empty promises, and zero results.
The difference between this blog site and the other blog sites I’ve created is I’m going to allow myself to let loose. It’s not going to be as pretty as those weight loss blog sites that show you people who’ve already reached their goals. Of course, they’re all smiles. They just made it to the other side! I’m pretty sure I’ll get there, too but, for now, I’ll be that miserable fool at the bottom of the ladder, getting ready to face resistance as I climb to the top. Hopefully, there’s cake on top but of course, positive results, in general as well. Whether it’s losing all my excess weight and reaching my goal or if it’s only 10 pounds by the end of the year, for as long as I did my part, I will be okay with it.
Let’s face it, I’m one of those who struggle to lose weight. It’s genetics, it’s laziness, heck it can also be craziness. I’m okay with my situation now more than I was a year ago but do I regret not starting last year or the year before that? Absolutely. Everything before today is just a memory. There are moments when I feel like I will never, ever, ever amount to anything when it comes to losing weight.
I’m always hungry, or, at least, that’s what I think. I’m always craving for food when I should be doing other things. It’s a challenge and I’ve experimented over the years, only to fail. I’ve become a cliche. I start a blog the first day of the new year and then the site’s lucky to see me post for the next week, and then nada. Zilch. Empty.
That’s how it feels inside of me because I don’t do anything about it even when I know the only way I can be healthier and lose the weight is to just do what’s right. Eat healthy, exercise, do not apologize. I have to. I’m not getting any younger and this can probably be the most gratifying gift to myself.
So, welcome. If you’re like me, struggling to lose the weight, this one’s for you. If you feel like it’s hard to lose the weight and be healthy, well, heck yeah, it is! But it’s not too late. We’re given another year. I say, it’s never too late.
