I didn't know that writing a blog would prove to be as challenging, if not more so, than changing the way I eat!
A blog is by its nature self indulgent. It's casual. It catches me where I am. Like the life I'm recording here, it's sometimes boring, sometimes funny, and every once in a while profound.
To those of you hanging in there with me through this journey, thanks. Thank you for walking beside me through my daily struggles and occasional triumphs, my rants and raves and my glimpses of clarity. The very act of writing my thoughts down during all this has helped me work some things out, but it's a little like walking around in a bikini when you'd rather be in full body armor. Being open about my struggles, I believe, has been a key element to my success thus far. It still makes me a little nervous though. When we show people who we really are, we're bound to lose a few along the way. On the other hand, the Bible teaches us to share our burdens and to help each other get through this thing we call life. I'm grateful for all of you who are helping me and sharing my burdens here. Thank you!
