The only thing that matters now is my mission. Nothing will stand in the way anymore.
I have a question for all my blogger friends who have actually written a book and had it published. Believe me I know it must have been quite the endeavor to do this ... ever since I have taken back my life with exercising and eating healthy, I have had many people in my life tell me how I need to write about it... I scoffed at them, as truly how many people have written weight loss books or how they finally got to the weight they desired? More and more I have been thinking that maybe they are right, maybe it is time for me to sit down, compile a book of my journey? I have everything documented either through my blog, my Facebook, My Fitness Pal or Map My Walk... nothing is all in one place.
I guess I wonder how viable it would be to sit down and put this all together in one place, starting from what actually got me started to what keeps me on this path? I have had many people comment on how determined I am, I have always been determined... I just never channeled it in the right direction or the right places. I allowed life issues to take over and I allowed myself to use one excuse after the other to not be the best I could actually be. Maybe out of fear, I don't know... maybe writing the book whether it gets published or not might answer those questions for me.
I have overcome a fire that burned me and broke my family apart, I have come through childhood abuse by my ex step mother Ruth, I overcame being a young single mother raising my oldest daughter on assistance, I became stronger after all the abuse Andrey heaped on me in our marriage and the rape after we were separated and I survived losing the love of my life my David. These are all defining moments that could have taken me down and led me to a path of self destruction but I found the strength to come through each of these and even at my lowest after losing my David romantically I found the desire to finally pull out the strength to get my life on track.
Truthfully, if I can get through all of these things that I did, I can lose the weight and become the best me... Now to write the book, if anything it might answer questions for me...
