On pondering this whole blog bizzo, I realised the this here blog of mine has changed and morphed a fair bit over the past 2 year or so. Like me really.
And one thing that has niggled me a little is that I have recently found myself blogging a lot less about my weightloss and my diet and my diminshing efforts.
Perhaps because I am concentrating less on it? Or, dare I admit it, doing a lot less on the whole diet caper?
And I have also noticed that I am the best maintainer of weight ever. Which would be OK if I was at a healthy weight. But I am not, not yet.
Why? Why have I moved, emotionally and practially, from "committed" to just "interested" in losing weight. (And the committed versus interesed concept is another blog post all to itself!)
I have mentioned him before, but he talks a lot of sense:
Jack Sh*t, Gettin' Fit: Whys & Wherefores
He suggests that a clue may lie in the why's of this whole deal:
Why did I get the way I was? Why did I make the change? Why is this time going to be different?
If I look back to an old old post, from when I very first started, I did have some really great reasons.
Have those reasons changed or altered?
Can I "delete" any of them?
And if no deleting is going on, then those reasons are still current and valid?
And why do I not feel passionate about it any longer? No longer as driven?
And why have I not totally backslided? And stacked the whole lot back on?
And why, when I am now so clear on the benefits and joy of active fitness, do I not just match that with stricter food choices that will help me shed rather than just maintain?
And why is my family life so bloody busy and chaotic that I feel I so do not enough time or headspace to even think about these "Why's", let alone tackle them.
If anyone has any ideas to move me back to committed, or any suggestions on where I lost my diet mojo, lemme know?
