Where have I been?

Under a rock, right?
Actually, kind of.
When I took a slight blogging break, it wasn't planned. Honestly, life got in the way. Excuses, Excuses..I'm the queen of them these days, it seems.
But the truth is, after my miscarriage in June, I went downhill in my weight loss journey. I actually feel like I went downhill in general life. When I blogged about how I gained 12lbs in a year that wasn't even the worst of it. By October, when I started my new job, I had gained 13 more pounds with a grand total of 25 ponds. That is a little less than total weight lost when I was on Weight Watchers in 2010 (52 total pounds lost).

How was I supposed to come back to my weight loss blog and write about gaining weight?

That was my mindset, at least. I shouldn't have walked away from the blog, but I actually felt like it was detering me because I had all these expectations of myself and how much weight I should be losing, but then I'd gain and feel defeated so it was just a vicious cycle. I felt like I couldn't blog about the hard times.
But then I thought about it, who am I blogging for? Someone who googled "how to not be an overweight bride."? No. It's for ME and my journey.
From now on, I'm going to blog about the good, the bad and the ugly. Because that's exactly what my weight loss journey has been. I'm going to be getting real and honest.
Thanks for all the support.
