And I had an epiphany. I needed to open myself up and write about what I'm feeling and what I'm doing to feel better. I know there are others out there that struggle. And we need to come together.
Last year, I did a happy thoughts blog where I posted a quote about happiness every day. By the end of the year, I didn't feel much happier. I took some time to think about what I thought would make me happier. High on the list, being skinny. While this sounds completely shallow, and I know I should be happy with myself the way I am, I am pretty sure being healthier and thinner will add to my happiness. So this year has been focused on that.
I know, I know. It is April 17th. Where have I been the last three and a half months? I've been gaining the courage to talk about something that is so personal. I don't believe in sharing my private life in the public sector. But I'm hoping this is just the kick in the pants that I need. If I'm accountable here, maybe I'll be successful.
Note: I have not gained the courage to share actual numbers or pictures yet.
I'm hoping that will come because I know I will feel even more accountable.
Here's to new beginnings and getting skinny!
