WILLLOSEIT's CalorieKing blog

Saturday, Jun 30 2007 - keep those cards and letters coming

View WILLLOSEIT's food & exercise for this day

i just want to thank everyone for reading and enjoying my blog. it is just so satisfying to me. This weight loss journey is so important to me. i believe that keeping and sharing this blog is making all the difference to my success and just may be the missing link i never had on previous attempts to shed these pounds.

i have always expressed myself best by writing my feelings into a poem or an essay. When I was younger and upset with someone i would often write a letter and never send it. The writing alone was the healing i needed. of course there are some letters I should have mailed, but I didn't have the courage for my words to be heard. but that is another story.

but now my weight loss journey has a voice and it is being heard. and i am glad that i have this place of wisdom. you are all very kind and gracious and i don't think that can be said enough times. who knows someday my dream of becoming a published author will come true. happily, because of this journey we share i'll be thin for my appearance on oprah :laugh5::laugh5::laugh5

today i would like to share something i wrote a long time ago; july 18th, 1991 to be exact. i have poems, prose and essays all over the place....typically, back then most of what i wrote was about unrequited love or unhappiness and therefore not very uplifting. but i thought this one was worth sharing because to me it speaks of never giving up. and isn't that what we are all about?

i am off to visit my dearest friend and family for the day and night. ralph is away for a few days visiting his mom in florida so i am enjoying my alone time. i don’t know if i wll get back to reading everyone’s blogs and commenting today, but i will before the weekend is out. i want to give as good as i get from all of you!!! have a great weekend!

passion on a hot summer's day (night)

not the passion two people share
but the soul
of feeling the air i breathe
the strength i feel today
of all days
when the world is slower than i
racing,
a heart can't keep pace
with the dreams
i dare to (pause)
believe in
passion,
on this day
when the sun is
no longer a friend
but "it"
in a game of hide and seek
slip under a tree
catch a cool train
walk don't run
rest, not work
passion is good
on a day
like today

:love: it! Beautiful. I understand about the writing. I've done the same thing with letters -- mostly not mailed. It helps. Thanks for sharing, because it helps to know you're not alone in this battle! :love: Hope you have a great weekend.
