Weigh, Lose or Stay
The observant of you may have noticed that there has been no Weigh, Lose or Stay for a couple of weeks. I have been doing a bit of soul searching on this feature.
I won’t lie I have had a couple of weeks off the diet and it you follow the feature, you will also know I have been struggling with the diet a bit of late too, more up and down again, which has led to maintaining I guess rather than losing.
I am not giving up – I still have my goal in mind. But with my son’s birthday, then my husband going away and the children and I getting a bug, all my good intentions crumbled somewhat. But I am back on the diet as of yesterday, Christmas is looming after all!
On reflection, I think that writing about it every week is not always beneficial and adds an un-needed pressure to my journey. I have also found that with this linky, that some weeks I have quite a few people link up and other weeks only one or two. Which makes me think that this is the same for other people too, and that when it comes to health and weight loss, monthly is an easier way to go.
Bearing this in mind I have gone back to the drawing board and made a couple of decisions. Instead I will only be writing about my weight loss journey on the blog monthly. I think this will take some of the pressure off and enable me to look at the overall success.
I have also decided to discontinue the weekly linky that goes with this feature. However, never fear I have something new and rather exciting to share I have been working on something new with two rather lovely bloggers, two lovely Rachels in fact. Rachel from The Melton House and Rachel from Life of My Family and Me. We are going to be launching a new monthly linky in November which I hope that those of you who joined in with #weighloseorstay will follow and join with instead. It will be on the last week of every month, watch this space for more news.
