Welcome to Tell Me Tuesday.....First off the title is a bit deceiving.....it really is not about you telling me anything.... but answering a question truthfully and maybe telling yourself a little something you had not thought about.
I'd love for you to join me each week, and copy the question onto your blog and answer the question....and link back here. I am sure it will be interesting how there will be many different answers to the same question.....and hopefully give each of us something to think about as this new year progresses. My thought is so many people (including myself) are looking for some answers to various things. I have a feeling that the answers are inside needing to be jiggled loose and maybe a question posed a certain way will have a cause and effect in a good way. We will see how it goes! I have committed to this once a week for the whole year of 2012. I'd love for you to take the challenge with me!
I am keeping the rules simple...I'd love to watch this grow as the year goes on.
1. Grab the button on the sidebar if you like so others can find this new writing experience each week.
2. Once you link in, visit the person who linked in before you and leave them a comment. It would be great to visit and leave comments for as many as you can. But at least try and leave the person ahead of you in the link a comment of support.
3. Please link back to my blog and mention Tell Me Tuesday somewhere in your POST. That is it....easy.
Most of all, look at this writing experience with an open mind. Sometimes the questions will be hard...and require some thought. That is a good thing. Other times it will be easy. ( This week...I think is easy....but I can not promise that each week ) You can add photos, or whatever you like to your post. It is about you after all. ~ Thanks for joining me.....I hope you enjoy this each week.
Week One Question: ( In keeping with the new year)
What is your number one goal for the next six months?
The number one goal for me for the next six months is as cliche as it can be. I almost hate to say it, but here goes....to lose weight. I have struggled with this for so long and have had little success in making any progress at all. In fact, I have gained more in the last few months than I feel comfortable sharing. I feel like I have failed myself by not trying harder, by not pushing myself in doing things I don't like to do, by allowing myself to be lazy and staying too comfortable. The weight is a big hindering factor in a lot of areas of my life. It is time to take my life back.
The not so funny thing about this weight issue is that lately, I have had nightmares that something was wrong with me. Each dream I have had has been different in nature, but the theme is the same. My weight has caused the problem and could have been avoided. That is a very uncomfortable feeling.....even more uncomfortable than going to the track and making myself walk or exercise.
The truth is hard....I really have to forget there are others going to read this and still hit publish. My goal is to lose at least 50 pounds in the next six months. I know it is a reachable goal and I am not being unrealistic. The real problem lies inside my head and lacking the motivation to start. This time, I am feeling someone is trying to tell me something through my dreams....and I am a little bit afraid to ignore the warnings.
Six Months......50 pounds lighter........my number one goal!
