I don’t want to be defined as a weight loss blogger anymore.
Do I still want to lose weight? Yes. Do I know I will? Yes. I’m determined to see that final, goal weight, awesome number on the scale, and I know I will get there.
As much as I want all of that, I know that blogging about it is putting too much pressure on myself. The pressure is not motivating to me, it’s paralyzing.
I know that this isn’t the case for some people, but I know myself well enough to know that this is the case for me.
Does that mean I want to stop blogging? Heck to the no. Did you see the beautiful new face lift that Lindsay Weighs In just got?! Yeah, I’m not going anywhere.
I thought about changing the name of this blog, but I love the name. I love the history that the name and I have, and I love all of my life that is stored in this little space.
So from now on, it’s still Lindsay Weighs In, but it’s no longer going to be about weighing in on the scale. Instead, it’s going to be weighing in about life. About finding a balance between healthy living and living, and sharing with you all what I found out along the way.
Is anything going to change around here? Not really! I’ve never felt that I fit into any specific niche and that used to bother me, but not anymore. I’m still going to be blabbing on this space about whatever comes to mind, same as I always have. I’m just taking the pressure off of myself to lose weight “for the blog.” That’s just silly. I’ve been thinking about this for some time now, and I’m ready to share this with you all.
Instead, I want to lose weight for myself. For my future children. For my future self. Not so that I can document my journey on the blog. I’ll save that for my memoir some day. 😉
