Softly As I Leave You


Why can't we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn't work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. Then we would have to say good-bye. I hate good-byes. I know what I need. I need more hellos.

I posted for the first time on this blog on May 2,2010. Seems like ages ago really and a good bit has changed in my life since then. I am nowhere near the same person that I was then. I have made new friends and have lost a few. I have moved into new directions at my job. I have travelled more than I ever thought I would have had the chance to.
I have finally come around to the idea that blogging is indeed dead or dying. I read a very few blogs myself now. At one point I had upwards of 15 on my reader but now its less than 5 that I check on a regular basis. And I hardly ever comment anymore on any of them.
Twitter has replaced a good portion of blogging. Facebook is still pretty strong of course....
Blogging is slowly slipping away.....And thats ok.
I used this blog for the past year to document my weight loss journey. I have had amazing support from you all and appreciate it. I have managed to lose about 60lbs in 13 months and keep it off. I will continue to lose weight and get into better shape...thats a promise not just to me but to you all also. But things have changed and there is really no need for my blogging voice to be heard anymore...and that too is ok.

So thanks for the memories and the comments over the past couple of years....its been a blast. Lets do it again sometime....
