Today is exactly three weeks since I started my Cambridge weight plan journey. Today is also exactly three weeks since my first blog entry recording my random thoughts.
I have chosen not to tell people in my life that I am on the Cambridge diet. The only people who know are my DH and my little sister, who has started the diet herself and is on Day 4. I am so proud of her. I have made that choice because I don’t want distractions, concerns, people’s opinions on what they think of the diet, especially as most of them would not have bothered to have educated themselves on it before commenting.
I also don’t want the negativity like the one friend that lost 10 stones in 8 months on the diet. Incidentally, during her time, all I heard were negative comments about the diet. I just don’t want to deal with anyone’s drama, anxieties, spend my time constantly reassuring others or deal with any negatively that distracts me from concentrating on the diet.
It is somewhat unfair to make the above general statement and I must qualify it. My mother and sisters are my biggest fans and will 100% support me if they know about the diet. I have announced the start of so many diets to them that there is a sense of not wishing to fail yet again about not telling them about this. I have chosen just do it, don’t just talk about it, let my new slim figure speak for itself.
There are also friends who will of course wholeheartedly support me without negativity and with time, perhaps I would invite these friends into this new world of mine.
When I started this journey, I felt that a diary would help me track my progress and stay motivated. It is doing just that.
This post is really to say that I am very thankful and appreciative of every single person that has chosen to read my random thoughts.
I am grateful for those who have subscribed to my blog by email or bloggers following and liking my posts.
I am thankful for those of you who have tagged me or written to say that they have shared my blog with other people.
I am extremely grateful to those who have not only read my blog but actually taken the time to drop me a line on two on comments, Facebook or emails – see Contact for details.
I can’t pretend to understand exactly how the internet or blogging works; nor do I understand how people find my blog nor how I have somehow managed to acquire readers from countries as diverse as the UK, USA, Australia, Qatar, Ireland, Nigeria, Canada and Zambia. It is a humbling feeling; our world truly is a global village.
I am always floored by the kindness of strangers. You have all been extremely kind to me.
To all of you reading this, I would like to extend a most sincere, heartfelt and a huge thank you for your support.
