What inspires you? Who inspires you?
Day 79 is here and it is a day of insignificance, other than, it is today. It is now. I need to live now don’t I? As I tried to figure out what to write, those two questions came to mind, and I’ve been struggling to figure out, what is inspiring me to lose the weight and who is inspiring me to continue this journey?
These should be easy by day 79 in a weight loss challenge. At least, it should be when you’re successful at losing weight. If you’ve gained weight all 79 days I could see having a tough time with those questions.
So, I am inspired by…
Am I really that vain? That I cannot find anything or anyone outside of myself that inspires me? I am certainly inspired by those of you who read my blog and ‘like’ it and especially those of you who comment on my obnoxious drivel that I’m constantly posting. You are very inspirational. I am inspired by those of you I follow and like and comment on. If I like one of your posts, I really liked it. I follow a lot of bloggers, but I rarely like all their posts. I don’t like to like or comment to just get them to come to my blog. It feels fake. So cherish the fact that I found you inspiring (I’m totally kidding, please don’t take me for a total tool).
I don’t interact with a lot of people that are all that aware of the fact that I’m actively working to lose weight. I don’t talk about it much. Now that I’m at 1,600 calories per day, I get to eat mostly what I want on a daily basis. I did not want to be that person who has to remind everyone why I am unable to do anything because I’m on a diet. So, my inspiration is from my friends on the Interwebs. Your stories inspire me. You keep me honest. You have not judged me for my odd or even unhealthy choices along the way, and really, you should have. 🙂 I don’t have a lot of active followers, and that’s totally ok.
I don’t think I should feel bad about not being able to answer these questions easily. Though maybe I should. Maybe I’m just a jerk and don’t know it. Either way, something is inspiring me to keep going. To persevere. It’s there, I’ve thought of it before I’m sure, and I’ll remember it later too.
So what is your inspiration to lose weight or to simply be fit? Or, are you inspired to gain tons of weight and die young with cheeto dust all over your shirt? That’s ok I guess.
