It's been a long time since I've blogged. (almost a year and a half!) Over the past year I've gained weight and all my attempts to get back on track have failed. I don't know how much weight I have gained because 1) I don't really want to and 2) my scale is broken. I haven't gained back all that I lost, but if I don't turn it around, I feel certain I will.
I have crocheted a LOT since I stopped blogging and obsessing about dieting. (See my work on instagram.) I hope that I am in a better place now and perhaps needed a time to step back and try again without making it the sole focus of my life. Because all of my attempts to just eat smaller portions have failed miserably, I know that I need some sort of tracking/accountability. When I was blogging about my journey, I seemed to do much better and so here I am. It doesn't matter if anyone reads it. I need this for me.
I realize that I became totally and completely obsessed with weight loss. My whole life CANNOT be about weight loss. At the end of my life I am not going to say, "Wow! I'm so glad I spent the last 20 (random number) years obsessing about every bite of food I put in my mouth!" It's not a good use of my time. But, I am hoping I can find a balance and maybe writing about it will help. At this point, I'm not weighing or measuring myself nor am I following any specific diet plan. I am just trying to find a healthy balance of all the things I have learned over the past (almost) 5 years.
I am starting a new weekly series that I am calling Trim Down Tuesday where I will share what I am eating (with links to recipes where possible) and how I am doing. I am excited to get back to blogging.
