Fresh Start

Blogging basically started by people journaling about their thoughts, goals, and experiences. It has since changed to include much less personal and more professional information. There are some people who have several blogs to cover all the different facets of their life and personality. I don’t do a very good job keeping up with this one. I started it thinking that all I wanted to talk about was books and writing. Those are only aspects of my life though – not a total reflection of me. I still want to talk about them, but I think it’s right for this to reflect me as a whole person.

That’s why I am starting with a confession. I am overweight, not healthy, and very frustrated by the struggles I’ve had. I don’t have cancer or diabetes (yet), but I have quite a few less serious problems that have hindered my overall health and fitness and caused me to have to adapt my lifestyle. I want my life back. I don’t want or need to be model thin, but I would like to try and make sure I’m around to see my grandchildren one day. Boys – that doesn’t mean you need to hurry up and have children. {wink}

I’ve tried a lot of things in the past. This time I am combining efforts and I’m going to be willing to change strategies if things aren’t working. If I talk about something you’ve tried, please share your experiences with that tactic and how it worked (or didn’t) for you. If you have similar health challenges I would love to hear about that too. I am going to do this. I don’t think it will be pretty or easy, but I invite you along for my journey. It’s always more fun to do things with friends.
