If You Don’t Have Anything Nice To Say…

… Don’t say anything at all. That’s basically the saying, right?

Ok, so the saying is really referring to saying bad things about other people. I’m not doing that. And no one is saying bad things about me. (Or that I’m aware of!) I am talking about myself. I feel like I have been doing a lot of complaining for a while now. So first of all, let me apologize for my pity parties.

Now, let me also say that I have received some amazingly supportive feedback! So thank you for being there for me!

And surprisingly I had readers tell me I was still an inspiration and that they appreciated my candor while I rehashed my struggles with maintaining my weight loss and my running and workout motivation. Somehow my honesty about how it ain’t over when you reach goal inspired people to push on, when I thought I was going to make them give up! I also had to remind myself that I did have small victories in the past months, and perhaps that is what others see. Sad that the bad often overshadows the good.

So now, you may have noticed I’ve been a bit MIA. Less and less posts, tweets, instagram pics, and foursquare check-ins. I haven’t had anything good to say, so I haven’t said anything at all! If you’ve been around for a while, it’s not the first time I’ve gone off the grid, but I just wanted to let you all know that I’m still here! Especially since if you read my last Weekly Weigh In about a month ago, I was having medical issues. And yes, I am still dealing with them. Just one more thing to complain about, right?

Those issues are taking precedence over any worries about whether or not I tracked my food every day, if I gained or lost weight, if I was sticking to my 5K training, or if I was completing my Ripped in 30 challenge. When I thought about it, my complaining about maintenance and workout motivation is actually completely relevant to this here blog, but my medical issues are of a separate personal nature, and I had to make the decision of whether or not I really wanted to share all the details of it with the world. As you will probably agree, weight issues are already a deeply personal subject to expose to the masses!

That all being said, I have chosen to take a step back and to not share my medical issues here. Just know that I am in good spirits, it’s not life threatening, I have lots of good days, but it is a long process of eliminating possible causes. I will return when my thoughts are back on the appropriate topics! I actually have some reviews and recipes I’ve been dying to share, but sometimes life has different things in mind for you, and you have to make the best decision to survive those punches. I miss you, my peeps! But I’ll be back again real soon! I hope everyone is doing well on their journey!
