I think it’s time for a haircut. This is what I woke up to today:
Bad hair day.
Earlier this week, MizFit asked the question: What question do you want your blog’s tagline to answer? Another way to think about this: What is your slogan? I mused on the fact that I have had various cynical mantras (“this is not my life; it is merely a black comedy”) but no positive slogan per se, no banner flying high declaring my passion or purpose.
“Service blogs,” as I think of them, are out there providing valuable information and outlooks to others who are in need of this knowledge or perspective. It seems that their answers to the blog-purpose question are more straight-forward. On a personal blog like mine, created first and foremost to help me vent and feel less alone in my weight-loss efforts, it’s a bit trickier.
Sometimes the only way to figure out the question is to look at the answers so far. I confess, I’m at sea, but here’s what I’ve gleaned from looking back over the paltry two weeks I’ve been writing this blog:
Progress, not perfection, is an important philosophy.
I’m interested in getting inspiration and information from a wide variety of sources (ranging from manga to weight-loss-community sites).
It’s okay and maybe even necessary to have a sense of humor about the whole weight-loss process.
I want to make some long-lasting fitness-minded friends here online so that we can all support each other.
Mental health and attitude play an important role in my personal weight-loss journey.
So . . . what’s the question that all of this tries to answer? Um, I’ll get back to you on that one. Maybe I just haven’t figured out my tagline yet . . . and that’s okay.
And now on to some of my favorite online reads currently:
Annette’s Awakening gives out helpful tips and strategies that have helped Annette to lose 70 lbs so far.
True tales of models and eating/weight issues, a three–part series by part-time model and student Jess.
