I was inspired to start this blog by a sermon I heard on Sunday. I’ve been struggling with this weight gain for over a year. I’m getting frustrated and inpatient as to why I can’t “fix” myself or find a solution.
In sermon, the pastor talks about how everyone loves a good story and how most people hate spoilers (myself included). When I would start binge watching a new show I would purposely not join the Facebook fan page because I didn’t want to know what was going to happen. I wanted to watch and go through the highs and lows of the story. Part of the reason I’m drawn to books and TV is the journey that the characters go through. I get attached and want to know how things play out for them. A happy beginning, turmoil in the middle, maybe some sadness thrown in. I’m anxious to find how it everything turns out so I tune in every week or stay up late reading just one more chapter.
The pastor reminded us that we all have our own story already written and that even though we’d love to get a “spoiler”, we need to be patient and go through the journey. The ups, downs and even the boring flat areas. In my quest to try to figure out what works for me, I’m realizing that all the frustration, researching supplements, reading forums etc are part of my story whether I like it or not. So I’m accepting this and documenting it for me to look back on. I don’t know if I’m just starting and have a long way to go or I’m almost at the end, but for now I’m going to stop looking for spoilers and just enjoy the show.
