All right - I'm sure you are all saying shut the hell up Barbie........see what being MIA for a couple of days does to me??? Geez you would think this was like crack or something.......I really gotta get a grip!
So on to my point - I need opinions and honesty here........I want to write a book! I love to write and have always wanted to write a book - the title would be the same as my blog title.........I just think that people should know the reality of losingn weight........it is so much more than some bubbleheaded aerobic instructor or fluff stuffed counsellor can ever describe. That is one of the reasons that I love this place - I can be real - people are real - life sucks sometimes, dieting sucks a lot of the time, exercise is hard, eating healthy is expensive and YES folks, sometimes after all our hard work pays off we realize that we have still gained a pannus and that, in and of itself, SUCKS ASS! So my saggy boob, jiggly butt, pannus toting self wants to write a book - maybe pannus talk isn't for everyone or the fact that I had some kind of orgy with banana pudding may be a little to riscae for some but I think real life weight loss stories are inspring. In fact - NOTHING inspires me more than to read about each of your successes, trials, tribulations, tears, laughter and joy. Weight issues are rough......dieting is harder.......loving yourself is the hardest!
So what would you guys think about compiling our stories and putting them in a book form??? Maybe it's a dumb idea - maybe no one would ever buy it BUT maybe it would inspire someone to "hold on", to "dream big", to "just do it" or to "break on through to the other side"..........let me know what you think about it. It might take some time to get it orchestrated and put together but it would be fun in the process!! I think we are an extraordinary (or insane, obsessive compuslive and ADD) group of people and we should share our insights with others!
