Lately I have noticed much of the fun has gone out of my blogging. Today, I was thinking about what has caused it. My conclusion? Since being banded, I have let the whole "Being banded, exercise,weight loss, dieting blah blah blah consume too much of my thoughts, hence blogging. Sure, I did start my blogging to record my journey after being banded. But, I do not wish to have dieting/banding become my life. My weight loss is now becoming less and less interesting to me. I have come to terms with the fact that I am and will always be a slow loser. I find that when I have made a poor food choice or strayed from exercise, I am discouraged from blogging. I have let my dieting/exercise failures/accomplishments determine my self worth again. I have decided to blog more about the other aspects of my life for now. We are so much more than banders!
Now that Spring is near, I think that not just me, but ALL OF US BANDERS will find more natural ways of getting our physical activities in. I love daylight savings because I have so much more time to do things in the evenings. My husband and I love to take long walks in the evenings after supper. We cannot do that lately because the street lighting is very poor around our neighborhood and its too difficult. I KNOW ME and although I will find myself doing the gym and traditional exercise during different periods in my life, I won't do it with any consistency. I prefer more fun things like swimming, walking, skating, tennis. All those wonderful warm weather activities.
Here's to Spring!!!
