Blogging my way through weight loss

I'm excited, a little nervous, a little scared, and wondering if I lost my mind. Am I really doing this? A blog about my weight loss? Do I really want to talk about my moments of amnesia, when I "forget" that there was a healthier option than the hamburger that I ordered? Do I talk about wanting to nearly throw up when I've worked my butt off on the treadmill? Do I really want to write about the insecurities that I feel when you go out with a group of friends and you're the "fat" one? The answer is yes!

I have always found writing to be therapeutic. I love to write, especially about topics that I'm really passionate about. Right now the most prevalent topic is weight loss. I chose the title of my blog, "H.K. Weighs In..." because I "weigh in" on different issues that relate to weight loss.
I "weigh in" on shows or articles that relate to weight loss, low cal recipes, my weekly weigh in with a weight loss group and my ups and downs towards the goal to losing weight.

Every year for the past 7 years, I write "lose weight" in my New Year's resolution list. I am determined that this is the last year that I will put that on my list. This is what I am aiming to put on my New Year's resolution list next year:

1. Maintain my weight loss (Yes, it feels good to write this!)

2. Donate all the "fat clothes", I don't need them anymore!

3. Wear that black, slinky dress that's been hanging in my closet for 5 years! (My husband, especially loves that one!)

**It's a long road ahead of me, but it's one that I plan to stick with.**

Are you always tired of writing "lose weight" on your New Year's resolution list? What are you doing right now to make this year, the year you stay committed to your health?

Writing next year's resolutions is such a great idea...I'm going to write mine for 2010 now. And then, like you, take the steps to make them happen. Welcome to the weight-loss blog world, H.K.!
