My followers numbers fluctuates and while I try not to let it make me crazy, bother me, or take it personally, it does, it does, and I do. Just like so many other numbers I know I should not care and it's one measurement out of many. I also know I do this for me, and to get to know people not to have the most followers in the world. Is it wanting people to like you, or some sort of validation? I don't know. I am not going to make myself crazier then I already am over analyzing it, because quality not quantity is what counts. I care more about the quality of what I am posting representing me then gaining more people.
It's tough to start a blog about weight loss and then have it evolve. I have never wanted to exclusively focus on the physical because that's a part of it. The mental is the biggest part to me and still is. How much weight I lose, or have lost does not really matter. I'm different from every person and what's right for me is different then what is right for someone else so I am not going to do weigh ins, post measurements, and things like that. It does not sit well with me. It's too focused on what you have to let go of in my opinion. Key point there, my opinion, it does not work for me because it makes me more focused on unhealthy behaviors to compete with myself. Sure, you have to know where you are, or started and if that works for you go for it. I want everyone to find what works for them and embrace it, sing it from the rooftops. I will only argue with you if it's some sort of strict diet, said with love. I straddle a fence of weight loss, musings, and just being myself and I like the little niche I have found and I value each one of you who found me to.
