New Thing to Work On

As you can see from the dates of my posts, I should make one of my primary goals to get better at blogging. Well…let’s just add it to the list! I am going to get better at blogging though, because I have so much that I want to share with you. And I hope that you want to share with me as well!

The Situation

I weigh 280.4 pounds. I know…eek!!! The eek isn’t an eek as though I’m scared or the number frightened me. It didn’t sneak up on me in the middle of the night and jump out of the shadows. It’s been there my whole life. I’ve always been overweight. For the first time though, I’m starting to really look at the number and understand the gravity of it. Not just the fact that it’s a number on the scale, but just how much weight that is to physically carry around each day as well as how much mental weight that creates as well in terms of self-judgement, self-esteem, etc.

Where to Start?

I’ve committed to being on this journey of personal transformation and using this blog to document my journey. So naturally I’ve found myself wondering where should I start? I began thinking about the different aspects of my life – my health, my finances, my career, my social life, etc – and realized all of them are in serious need of transformation. Some just need a little transformation while others need a MAJOR overhaul. So when asking the question of where to start, it becomes a bit daunting.

Starting the Journey

Welcome! I started this blog earlier this year to focus on my goals for the year, not expecting so much to happen in 2020 to derail me from my intended course. I wanted this blog to be about my trials and tribulations trying to reach those goals, but I wasn’t able to find my voice to bring that to life. And quickly this went to the wayside based on a few curveballs from life.

I found myself this morning thinking about this blog and still having some desire to make it happen. But what should it be? What should it look like? I am still working towards my goals, but I feel like what is happening now is so much more than a sentence written on the paper. After years and years of being stuck in the same rut, I’m ready to change my life. And not a little change here or there. A drastic overhaul. A flip the script kind of moment. Because as I’ve realized over the last few months, my soul isn’t happy. This in itself seems impossible or contradictory. I have little joys in my life that make me happy from moment to moment, and I’m extremely grateful for so much. Yet there is this constant churn inside that makes me wonder what am I doing with my life? There’s so much I want to do and I think I’m destined to do, yet I’ve chosen the path of least resistance. IN EVERY ASPECT OF MY LIFE.

This has to stop. I have just one life to live. While I’d love to live to be 100, based on past choices I’ve made and current circumstances I have yet to change, odds are my life is more than half over. How much longer am I willing to waste living a less than authentic life?

So I’m starting up this blog again. Not focused on any specific goal, but instead on me working to transform and change my life. I want to share the ups and downs, the good and the bad, because I know that not everything in life is an Instagram moment. And if you find yourself in the same boat, I encourage you to follow along and share your journey with me as well.

Welcome

Welcome to my blog! I’ve always wanted to write a blog, so for 2020 I have challenged myself to spend the next year writing this blog. I’ve always flirted with the idea of having a blog and have even went so far as to set one up one or twice. However, I’ve never actually done anything much with it. Rather than just continue to flirt with the idea, I went ahead and decided it was time to do it. It’s one of many ambitious goals I have for myself in 2020. The theme of my blog is going to be about my attempts and progress at achieving my goals I’ve set out for myself. If you’re interested in following along on my journey, I encourage you to become a subscriber and add me on social media to stay updated with my latest posts.
