I don't have a blog but I keep my friends and family updated on my Facebook page. At first, it was "bitter sweet" because I lost a couple of "friends" who were annoyed by my posts. I find that Facebook helps keep me accountable and provides support. Sometimes when I felt like giving up I would look at my "success" posts/pictures and look at all the likes and comments. Those people are pushing me to succeed so I can't let them all down. Most importantly, I can't let MYSELF down.
The two most important components for weight-loss success is dedication and support. This is your personal battle but it's good to have support when you need it!
Great article! So inspiring. One of my mini-goals is to use tools such as journalling, blogging and discovery/intention statements to get really honest with myself in my desire to be fit, have energy and feel great! This article has tonnes of insight.
I used to feel bummed blogging and no one even read or responded to it. Now I just do it for myself and if someone happens to see it and feels inspired than fantastic..if not then I still post it feeling fantastic! I am definitely going to start blogging more:)
I had never blogged "ANYTHING" until I joined SP in Sept. this year. When I saw "Comment on a Blog", at first I wasn't sure what I was suppose to do. I clicked on the link and that was my introduction to blogging. Thank you for sharing your story, it made me think.
My thoughts on blogging have been, I'll do it because I like too, but I'm certain with all the bloggers out there... no one will care to read mine. So, this article made me think... maybe someone will read it. And, it they do, I hope it makes a difference in their life like it's making in mine. Motivating Article~~
