If you’re reading this, most likely you’re one of my Facebook friends who are wondering why in the hell I’ve decided to disappear off of Facebook for a while. So, hello!
While some may find this silly, I don’t care too much. Essentially, I’m leaving Facebook to refocus myself on losing weight. Believe it or not (and you probably will…) I have about 200 lbs to lose to get to my goal weight. TWO HUNDRED EFFING POUNDS! It freaks me out just thinking about it. But, it’s the truth. If you’re a true friend, you won’t judge me. If you’re judging me (“OMG 200 lbs?! GROSS! Blah blah blah blah”), then go the hell away.
So…here’s the general plan:
I’m leaving Facebook until I lose half of that. Yes, that’s right…HALF. I won’t be back until I lose 100lbs. That’s a lot. It’s daunting, and I have my doubts about if I can do it, but I’ll be damned if I won’t give it a shot. It could take a year or longer, but if that’s what it takes, then that’s alright. Being away from Facebook could help me remain positive, and will prevent me from just sitting on my ass and not doing anything. It’s a win,win.
Tonight, I took a “before” picture. I cringed, because it was horrible, and I couldn’t honestly look at it without wanting to beat myself up about the entire situation. I plan on taking a comparison picture every month or so to keep track of my progress, and to generally keep myself motivated. When I come back from my Facebook hiatus, I’ll post all of the pictures so you guys can also see my progress.
Some of you might read this an say “this is the most ridiculous thing ever”, and that’s okay. You don’t have to understand it, and you certainly don’t have to agree with it. I’m doing this for myself, not you. I’m only writing this to give anyone who cares a heads up of why I am not on Facebook anymore.
If you wanna chat, great! My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Email me if you want my cell number. Also, please email/text me to keep me updated on upcoming events (school reunion, baby showers, etc.). I promise, I check my email like crazy.
Well, I’m taking the plunge! Tonight is my last night on Facebook. See ya when I’m 100lbs lighter!
