Losing It For The Family

I fought the good fight, but I did not finish the race......

So I am not sure who all I know still does the weight loss blogging thing. I have been gone for quite some time now. I miss the camaraderie, but my life just got busy and blogging everyday got lost in it. Being a first year law student was a bit harder than I thought it would be. But I am not here to make excuses, I am not here to rationalize. I lost over 100 pounds, and now I am being a huge non-fighter, and it is starting to creep back on me. I could just cave in. I could just call it good until after law school is over and then get back after the weight loss again. But that isn't me. I got there once, and I can get there again. I just need to come up with a better plan for staying there. I think one of the elements I am missing, one of the reasons I fell off the "yeah I am losing weight and doing great things with my health!!!" wagon is that I quit dealing with it in black and white. I quit putting physical form to it, and began to fight the fight only in my mind again. and we all know that when the mind gets the power, the rationalization begins. So I need to get back to writing it out, making it real putting real goals up, rather than thinking up new goals and never getting any further than that. So even if not one of the many wonderful people I met along the way in my wonderful weight loss journey of a year or so ago are still around, and even if not one person ever reads this blog again..... I need this blog. I need this outlet. I need to put my feelings in to black and white, my goals and wins and even my losses need to stop being so abstract, and take form. An abstract thought gets lost very easily, but a written goal is there to remind you, it has real power. I don't have a plan of attack yet, but it will be at least somewhat similar to the last one, but I am going to have to come up with a strategy for weight loss, AND a strategy for weight loss maintenance this time. Goal #1 for me is to start making this blog a priority once again. as in each day, I take at least 10 minutes to post about plans, wins and losses, and what ever I am feeling that day about my weight loss journey v2.0. And if any of my wonderful weight loss blog friends are still around, howdy and how are ya'll doing?

  1. Hi Shane,
    Although I never commented very often, I always enjoyed reading your blog. I'm glad you're back. This weight loss thing is a puzzle - we go breezing along like it's the most natural thing in the world, and then, BAM, we're back doing all the things we don't want to be doing. I don't get it, but many of us have been there.
