Ok, so a couple of weeks ago, my editor at Simplemost.com asked me if I'd be willing to write a post about my weight loss experience, so far. Obviously, I have no issue sharing my thoughts since I post here, on social media, etc. I've been pretty open so far.
But this was something different. It's one thing to share your experiences in your own little corner of the online world. Simplemost has a big, national audience. People on the world wide web (is it even called that anymore?) aren't always the kindest souls.
Still, I don't know about you, but I get tired of reading about the latest/greatest celebrity-endorse diet. There's nothing wrong with them, but many of us just cannot relate to that. I'm not special. I'm just like anyone else out there. I wanted to share what it's like to fight this battle for "just anyone."
If my post helps anyone, it's well worth putting myself out there for comments and criticism. So far, the reaction has been positive. It may not stay that way. Who knows? But, if it can motivate someone to realize they're worth taking the time and effort to treat themselves well, then the haters can hate!
Hope you enjoy the post! Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments or on the FB thread!
