I can’t believe this is the last post for our cross blog conversation. It’s been great getting to know Shannon over the last week and I sure appreciate her letting us into her little home on the web. What a fun time it was! If you have missed any of our questions/answers, feel free to go back to follow along by visiting our cross blog conversation categories (Shannon’s and Angie’s). Shannon has one last question for me. Shannon asks,
“Being this far along in your weight loss journey, what have you learned that you wish you knew when you started?”
WOW it sure has been a long time on my weight loss journey. I started changing my lifestyle back in 2005 and the biggest thing I have learned since then is that it’s way too easy to put the weight and inches back on once you lose them. I always heard that it’s easier to put it on than to take it off but once I experienced that for myself I knew people weren’t lying. It really has been a challenge the past 4 years. Losing over 80+ pounds and then gaining back quite a bit has been a downer but I know since I have done it before I can and will do it again. I have learned so much more and will have to share more at another time.
So sad this is our last cross blog conversation blog post and I want to thank you Shannon for asking me great questions. It’s been fun getting to know each other and I look forward to more cross blog conversations in the future.
If anyone has questions for me, feel free to post them here in the comments and I will be happy to answer them on my blog from time to time. Maybe I’ll even start a “Mail Bag” day on my blog where I’ll answer a question a month (or if I get a massive amount of questions *wink* I can do it on a weekly basis). You can always email me with questions too. Or if you have a healthy living blog about weight loss/fitness, etc., we could possibly do a cross blog conversation sometime.
We hope you all have enjoyed this little banter back and forth as much as we have. It’s great getting to know others who face the same challenges. We are not alone! I love that we have so much support out there.
What have you personally learned on your weight loss/fitness journey? We would love to hear about your challenges and successes!
