5 Years ago... Yesterday

5 years ago, yesterday, I started this blog.  It's been a resting spot for my thoughts and findings and somewhat of a resource that helps with accountability.   I journal my activities, things I'm grateful for, and what happens along the path to achieving my goal.  I've had other blog-like sites previous to this one, but this is probably the longest running format I've maintained. My blog's former name was, "She Didn't Have Time"

So in honor of my 5 year blog-o-versary, here's snippits from my very first post:

Hello new blog. :)

I'm Donna. Since I will be getting very intimate with you in future, I should explain what has prompted me to find a new place to journal...

It's the third week of the new year and I have finally come to terms with the idea of having weight loss surgery. Over the years I have had very mixed feelings about it. And while I thought it extreme and not the best method for me, I always supported my friends on their journey.

I can already tell this is going to be a powerful and emotional journey. I mean, from the very day I decided to consider it! In a way I almost feel like a failure to my body and as a role model to others. Today I was discussing it with my husband, and the realization that I need help brought me to tears...

...So, to explain my title... We go through life saying we don't have time for this, or time for that, or time for the things that are really important. The fact is I don't have time to not let my inner person out. She is active and fit, and wants to live a full and robust life.

I just want my outside to match my inside, so I can feel good about me...
