Why do you do it? I ask myself each week when I sit down to write a Wobbly post. Seriously, there are bigger issues in the world than my weight loss and path to better health. Why would anyone want to read about it anyway? I’ve actually got no idea why anyone does. Mostly it’s me grumbling about how I want to eat more chips and gravy and not wanting to exercise. Yawn.
The reason I write this is mostly for myself. Actually that is pretty much why I write anything on bigwords, for myself. It’s my way to be accountable. Every time I write about what’s going on in my head, things become a bit clearer. And slowly each week more and more people contact me – sometimes to tell me their stories, sometimes to give me some advice, sometimes just to say hello. These messages of support help pull me through my slumps. Not only am I accountable to myself now, I’m also accountable to you. Like when I was walking Mt Lofty and wanted to give up, but didn’t want to let Twiggy down. I don’t want to let you down. And I definitely don’t want to let my kids down or me.
I don’t know if you realise how much you help me. And for that I want to say a big thank you.
Thanks for sticking with me while I ramble on about my health. I’m a slow learner so any tips from you help immensely. Each time I push publish I feel less alone in my struggle against myself.
So, I’ll get back to trying to talk myself out of eating a chocolate croissant and instead focus on getting out for a big walk. Whatever you’re up to today, I hope it’s full of love and laughter, because really that’s what matters most.
One day you will walk into a shopping centre and feel almost ill when you smell the doughnuts. It’s then that you’ll know that you are truly a winner. When you head for the fruit & veg market, not even looking at the bakery. And, you know what? That time WILL come. It will take time (lots!) and perseverance (lots!)but it will come.Keep at it.You are doing so well.
You are doing so great!
