Forgive me, South Cobb. I promised I would regularly update you on my weight loss journey every Wednesday, and I promised myself that I would lose the toddler.
Since my last column, I walked about a mile with Mableton Improvement Coalition; I visited the weekly salsa dancing lessons at Mexico Lindo; I took my dog, Noah on the Silver Comet Trail and got in about 3.5 miles.
As I’ve gotten back in the groove after the New Year excitement, I’ve started hustling again to deliver news about South Cobb to you all and that means bouncing from interview to meeting to some place with wi-fi to get it all up on the site to home to eat and work a little more, where I usually fall asleep on the couch with my laptop.
In fact, right now, I’m sitting in a restaurant after finishing with an Austell Community Taskforce Partnership meeting followed by a Patch regional meeting. Tonight, I’ll be at the Six Flags LCI meeting. I have to say, I get a little tired and frustrated, South Cobb.
Yes, South Cobb, I began falling off the wagon. I felt myself falling and pulled myself back. Oh, and I’m not doing badly on the weight loss front, but I’m certainly not where I planned to be. My weight wavers between five to seven pounds lost.
If you knew me, you would know that I am incredibly tenacious– a great trait for a journalist. So, please know, I am not giving up, but I do need your help. I would love to see you guys out at the events when I go or to see comments on our Facebook page about your own weight loss journey.
So give me your feedback:
Have you ever gotten off track when making a lifestyle change? What happened? How did you renew your commitment for good?
Where should I go this week? I’m going to try Zumba again at Lailah’s Studio and I’ve downloaded a seven-day free pass to Gold’s Gym and I am vowing before all of you to use it every day starting Saturday until Feb. 11.
Also, if you want to write a column about your health journey or even about your struggles, please feel free to send that to firstname.lastname@example.org. I will definitely publish it, and I know it will help others like me.
Thanks for reading and keeping me going, South Cobb!
Keep it movin’!
