Oink, are you ok? it's unusual for you to be so "silent" on a weekday.....how are you doing?I'm doing...okay. Sigh.
I haven't blogged much today or yesterday simply because I'm feeling like I'm at an emotional low tide. I figured if I blogged anything, it would be about how tired, frustrated and depressed I'm feeling, and nobody needs to read about that. If I keep writing about all things negative, pretty soon my blog will become known as the weight-loss pity party and nobody will stop by for that.
People like to read success stories. They like to read inspirational tales of struggle where forward progress is slowly being made. Setbacks are okay as long as the ending is happy. They don't like to listen to overweight and depressed women whine about the fact that their diets aren't working and their lives just generally suck.
I know it's important to try and see the bright side in everything, but I'm not always successful at doing so. I figure I'm better off to remain somewhat silent when things are going badly so that I don't write a bunch of spew and scare all my readers away. I'm plenty scary as it is, so I figure I don't need any more reasons to chase my readership off into the far realms of the blogosphere.
I do want readers. Maybe someday I'll get a book deal out of it.
Oh, too late. Another dieting blogger has already done that.
Well, I still want readers anyway. If I'm successful at my weight loss, maybe I'll start a new exercise cult like Richard Simmons did. Instead of Sweating to the Oldies, maybe I'll put together my own video entitled Pigs Sweat to the Oinkies.
