Bye

I just wanted to let everyone know that as of now I am not going to be posting on there anymore. I feel like this is doing more negative for me then positive. I really am getting down watching all the big losses and I hardly have a decent loss, I am having a hard time handling reading blogs about people whining about 2 pound losses when I am lucky to get a 1 pound. I am tired of taking time to comment and get nothing in return. I have been inactive for over a week to see what would happen and only 3 people have wondered where I am. That tells me what I wanted to know. I feel like comments are only left on my blog because I came up in the blog roll. I may come back to this but as of right now I don't feel like I have this great community of support. I mean how do you get support when know one even realizes you are gone? I will still continue to read some blogs because I do hope to see everyone succeed. Right now though my focus will be on my family, the warm months up ahead and if I only update my other blog. Please do not take this the wrong way. Just how I am feeling over this last week. It has really hurt that I have been commenting and know one has asked me why I haven't update my blog.

I am so sorry to hear this Sarah. I respect your decision in this but I hope you will get back on it. I really like reading your blogs and don't think your negative at all and do understand your frustration in your weight loss journey.

I hope you will still visit my blog. I believe I have your email so we can stay in touch that way.

Big hug for you and I will miss you.

hey girl
I am sorry you feel this way, I just want you to know I really enjoy your blog and I read it all the time. Just wanted you to know that! I hope you decide to keep blogging!

I understand...and know how you feel as you felt the same with the group..you did so much work but got nothing back...its very frustrating.

I will miss your updates as I enjoyed seeing you pop up in my feedreader...but know you are only a phone call away.

I was one who missed you and checked up on you....a fan!!

:-( Sorry to hear that Sarah! I do understand though. The whole point is for it to be a benefit and if its not a positive then it is probably best to table it for awhile and see how you feel about it later. Best wishes and don't be a stranger.

Dear Sarah,
I will miss you! And you are doing so well with your exercise and weight loss - why do you feel that you are not?

How do I stay in touch with you if you aren't going to blog anymore? I've seen your comments on my blog recently but I am not sure where or how to comment back/reach you. Feel free to drop me an email at diane.downhour@gmail.com if you'd like to give me your email address.

Take care Sarah and don't be a stranger!

You're still going to keep your other blog though... right?!?!?!

Waaaaaaaaaaah.

Sarah- I'm sorry that I have been slacking in the comments lately and to let you know I always read what you have to say and it is very inspiring to me! I understand your need to say goodbye and move on for now - I hope you will come back soon and you keep up with your other blog. Don't forget you have my email and you can always write whenever you need it - I'm sure in the next couple of months I might be calling on you a lot. Take care and I hope to chat with you very soon!

Sarah said...

Yes I am keeping my other blog open!!!

Marcelle said...

Thanks for the comments on my blog this evening....
I am wondering how your weekend is going...pretty cold again this side, H went for a cycle but I lay around all day...watching tv.

Tomorrow will hit the gym again as cant afford to take more than one day off a week...

Went over my points today...dam!! and said no to so many things like Quark and ice cream....

Believe me, I understand your frustration. I often don't realize when someone hasn't been posting until it has been a bit because I usually only read blogs as they come up in my reader.

Nevertheless, if the blog is taking away from your success, it is not doing what it should. It is a tool. If the tool doesn't work, replace the tool.

I will miss you too Sarah!!!!!!!!!!!! I was jealous of your 1 pound losses since my scale has moved down in weeks. :) Remember, you have lost a total of 33.3 pounds and that is amazing. Only 20.7 to go.

I will have to catch you on your other blog and FB.

Keep Zumba dancing away.

I am sorry to see you stop. I have been working on a pageant the whole week so this is my first opportunity to catch up on all my blogs and you are one of the people in my "priority blogs" list (I have a magazine to put out in 3 days so I only catching up on some blogs)

I have your food blog on my reader but no other blog of yours so I will look for your other one and replace it with this one.

Melinda Miranda said...

I just started reading your blog and was disappointed that you will not continue it anymore. Even though some people get benefits out of your blog, remember that you should be doing this to help yourself first. If it is not helping, then yes, you need to do something else.

I may be selfish, but I hope you continue to blog here, because you are very inspirational and I love how you write!!

Good luck!!

Sunshine Mama said...

I noticed you hadn't posted lately, but I didn't know why.

I've enjoyed exchanging comments with you, but I understand your feelings. Sometimes you feel like no one really cares.

If you keep your other blogs, I'll check you out there!

Tiff said...

Sorry to hear this- honestly I could have been a better commenter though- your comments were always appreciated and I wish I could have done the same for you more consistantly.

I wish you all of the best and I have NO doubts that you can do this- and I fully expect you to pop back up here in a few months at your goal :)

Marcelle said...

OKAY ITS TIME YOU CAME BACK NOW, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW YOU DOING OR WHERE YOU ARE ON YOUR JOURNEY...AND I NEED TO KNOW..I NEED TO KNOW IF YOU ARE TRAINING AS NOT SEEING ANYTHING IN DAILYMILE EITHER.
YOU HAVE HAD ENOUGH OF A REST FROM BLOGGING...I WANT YOU BACK!!

Amy said...
