well I let the world know...
Jul 10, 2012Yep, I actually posted my decision on Facebook. Keep in mind that I am usually one of those who reads and likes everyones elses posts. Maybe adding a handful of my own sassy or snarky comments here and there. I am not one who usually shares my deepest thoughts or where I am going every minute or what I am having for dinner. This is even my first blog ever. So for me to share something personal like this is HUGE! (no pun intended...). Also, the fact that this news on Facebook actually addresses the one thing that most of my friends and family and I avoid speaking about with each other, my obesity, makes it SUPER HUGE! (again...no pun intended...).
In short, I posted on Facebook to make myself accountable, so I would not start this journey and quit halfway thru. I never even expected more than one or two close friends to mention the post. I figured that most would again avoid the subject. Needless to say, I was wrong...the reponse I received was totally unexpected and AWESOME! I got many comments of encouragement and lots of "likes". Everyone was sooo supportive...I truly am so blessed to have such a wonderful network of friends and family. I now realize that I any fear I have is totally unwarranted. Even if I don't see it yet, I will be able to accomplish this... I can't fail with this much support!
