So this happened yesterday


I completely forgot. Seems like the last few years I have forgotten my blogiversary. This little blog is always on my mind even if I don’t post as often, but I’m going to try to post more often – writing is very therapeutic for me – but I can’t promise anything pithy or deep. If you’ve been reading me for awhile, you know I tend towards the goofy side of life.  🙂

Back to the blogiversary, nine years is a long time to keep writing about how I’m not losing weight! Oh I’ve lost weight here and there, but honestly, this blog hasn’t been a weight loss blog for a long time. I’m totally okay with that. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t care about being thin again, but that wish isn’t the center of my universe anymore. I guess the center of my universe now is trying to be mentally healthy as well as physically healthy. Also lately I’ve been thinking about what I need to do now so that when I’m 90 I can still live in my own home and lead a full life.

Sometimes I wonder why I even still bother with this blog. I mean, blogging is so 2009, right? And yet, I just can’t let it go. Maybe I don’t have the knack for knowing when to leave – in another 9 years, will I be the last one at the party? I doubt it. For some of us, our blogs have become a part of our identities and it’s hard to just walk away from that. So for now, I’ll keep it up.

So anyway, yeah. Nine years.

    Happy Blogiversary? Glad you are still writing. Why is blogging so 2009? Can’t we just blog without the pressure of not being cool?

      Well I hope so because I do it all the time!! Or at least a few times a month. It just seemed like back then there were A LOT of bloggers. Now, not so much. Does it seem that way to you?

        I think some people who were there back in the olden days have stopped blogging, but there’s a new crop – it’s just hard to weed through to find those who resonate with what I want to read.

          YES. I totally agree with this.

    I am very happy that you have continued to blog. There are so many topics you hit home with me. It is reassuring to know there are others going through the same things I am. Here is to another 9 years ( or more if we’re lucky )

      Thank you Paula! That’s very sweet of you to say. 🙂

      Thanks Pal! I’m glad you have kept up your blogging too! 🙂

    Well it’s only six years for me – but I still blog nearly every day. But then I was never cool.

    It does feel odd though, like you I have a “weight loss” blog but haven’t really lost any weight in all that time. I can’t claim that blogging has helped me lose weight!

    • September 9, 2016 at 8:38 am

      Haha! It hasn’t helped me lose weight, but it sure has gotten me through some STUFF. And plus I’ve met amazing people like you, so it’s all been worth it. 🙂

    Happy Blogversary, Jill! It is hard to keep up a blog with fresh and interesting topics, especially those that go along with your blog’s topic. When I’m busy, I have to just let the blog sit by the wayside. And then the motivation of what to write about becomes its own challenge. I enjoy reading your blog. To be honest, I appreciate your fresh and open perspective…this is me, this is the way it is, this is how I feel/think. I like your honesty.

      Thank you Tracey! 🙂
