MIA Update

I'd like to apologize for being missing in action for so long.  I had been at a stand still for so long, and even though I have ideas rattling around in my brain all the time for my blog, I haven't felt like blogging.  In fact, I've almost dreaded it.

You see, I love to share the good stuff.  When I'm kicking butt, moving right along, making great headway in life it seems like life is so sun-shiney and good.that I can radiate rainbows from my derriere,   Who wouldn't want to share all that energy and positivity?

On the other hand, when I'm being what I deem "mediocre", I slip silently away hoping to not be seen or heard, wanting to fade into the woodwork.  I do not like BEING blah, so I really don't like TALKING about being blah.  Still, BLAH is a part of the human condition and I need to share the whole process, not just the bits and pieces that make me look best. :)

For now, I'll post a couple of new before/after pics.  I have been back on track for a little while now and am just about the same weight I was in June.  I consider that a victory considering in the past I'd gain back everything I lost and then some.  This time it's different.  This time nothing is going to keep me from living the life I can have - being healthy, fit, and happy.

I have a lot to say...about personal trainers, about making worthy realistic goals, and next right choices.

Blogging is a next right choice, even if it seems like a chore lately. What it does is keep me accountable, and for some reason, people like me...we need that. :-)

    Carly, girl . . . your outsides are matching your insides . . . you're BEAUTIFUL! Keep it up! I've been at a standstill for a little over a year, and I know what you mean about the little victory of not gaining anything back. I keep telling myself I'm happy where I am . . . even if I never lost another pound -- as long as I never GAIN another pound. BUT, the doctor says otherwise . . . not getting off these meds until at LEAST another 30 pounds and THAT has always been my goal -- to get off the meds.

  2. Carly it seems to me that like me you are finding body parts that were hidden for a long time.
    You have a neck and a chin.
    Looking good.
    Most important though is feeling better and the benefits to your health.
    Also important is to find a way of living that works for you.

  3. You're uncovering with courage. When we're afraid of what's under the cover (especially if we've never truly known and not sure of what we'll find), it's easier to keep hiding. I watch amazed as you find the freedom and joy that comes with discovering the beauty of your own skin.

  4. You are such an inspiration!! You look great, keep it up!! I enjoy reading your blog!

  5. Wow Carly, You really look pretty in the new pics. Good to see you looking so healthy and happy.


  6. Keep writing girlfriend and so will I. I've had some "bloggers block" myself the past couple of months. To overcome, I blog when i have something meaningful to say, like today or whenever I blog, so that it doesn't feel forced. This has worked for me EXCEPT laziness breeds itself in me so I have to watch out. I'm on a concerted effort to share more blog entries in the weeks and months to come.


Sorry to make you type in the "word verification" but I have been getting a ton of spammers lately. Just type in the word that you see and it should go through.
