Kinda Sad

When I started this whole lifestyle change, it seemed like there were several ladies doing the exact same thing. We were all figuring it out together and I was just amazed at the whole weight loss blogging community. 

Something shifted... Something just changed.

Slowly some of the regular ladies I read about daily and who commented around here got awfully quiet. 

Over time there have been more and more. I really felt like I knew some of these sweet ladies. I mean, I cheered for them when they accomplished something big. We encouraged each other when we struggled. 

Some days I look around at my Bloglovin' feed and realize things are changing. Some of those sweet ladies have lost sight of the healthy lifestyle. 

It's tough to put into words how that makes me feel. I feel like some of them have just stopping fighting for something they dearly wanted. I keep wondering... Am I next? Will that happen to me? 
I think that's my biggest fear at this point.

I feel like I've just maintained since our September beach vacation. All of the anticipation leading up to that moment....all of the hard work I put into setting things right...I never stopped long enough to prepare for the after. I never thought about where I go from here. I know deep down I am not content with stopping here, but I've also lost some of the momentum as well.

Hopefully in the coming weeks, I can rediscover what it's all about. Hopefully some of my blog buddies will do the same.

  1. I've been blogging for almost two years, and reading for much longer than that - I've seen blogs come and go, come and go. People decide they aren't interested in pursuing it so hard, anymore. It's not that important anymore. And I can understand letting go of blogging - but letting go of pursuing health??? It makes me sad, too, when I know how POSSIBLE it is and how amazing it feels!

    1. I agree. I wish more could hang in there because I hate to see anyone feel like I did when I was bigger.

  2. Hi! I just came accross your blog thru an email om womens health. Well my story is way too similar, but i am one who stopped fighting. :-(. I had lapband surgery in 2008. Lost 95lbs in less than a year and felt incredible. Needless to say i got pregnant a year later and had to have my lapband unfilled. I gained 40 lbs during the pregnancy then another 20 not long after and due to numerous medical issues am right back up there. I want that motivation and excitement i had in 2008.

    1. I'm so glad to have you here! Losing weight for me has to be a lifetime goal. I gain so quickly the moment I slack off. I have to consistently keep my head in the game. That's just life for me. It took me a long time to realize that.

      Try to stay active in a weight loss/health/fitness group and see if you can rediscover your motivation. I read a lot of fitness blogs and they keep me focused better.
