Shit's about to get real up in here

Ok so I’m just going to throw it out there that I’m getting sick and tired of drama for the sake of drama.  I read a lot of other weight loss blogs because I find them super inspiring and motivational, but there are certain ones that seem to have let the popularity get to them.  When I start seeing sponsorship for McDonalds on your page, I’m done, sorry.  I know everyone’s gotta make a living, but really? You’re blogging about weight loss, you should be aware of the sponsors you take on.  I’m over the “look at me I’m skinny now” attitude, I’m over the “I’m a motivational figure” ego, and I’m over the ridiculous new outfits every week.  I’m over it. 

There I said it.

 I spend my spare time reading about other people’s journeys, their ups and downs of weight loss, because I think it helps keep me present in what I’m trying to do.  It keeps me motivated and determined to keep this lifestyle change that I started, it reminds me that no one is perfect and that we all make mistakes, and that we need to just stay focused on the ultimate goal of a healthier way of life.  I don’t need to be reminded that my husband might think I “let myself go” or told that maybe if I just got on my knees my marriage would be better.  I’m just straight out disappointed with what this has turned into, and I’m sick of the drama surrounding it, so I’m done.

I love blogs that tell it like it is.  I love to read about other women’s experiences and feelings, the good, the bad, and the ugly.  I don’t even mind reading about how your sex life is affected by your journey, but when the whole tone of the blog changes over the course of a month or 2, something’s gotta give.  I’m sure I’m not the only one out there feeling this way, but I just thought I’d make it known why there’s one less follower out there.

I’ve already spent too much time and energy on this…so I'll end it with this: I’m more determined than ever to make this change happen, so here’s to a healthy, happy weekend!
