[a weight loss story]
*kathrynoh at nemesis dot com dot au*
I'd like to thank people for their great response to my post's about my life history, and for not thinking I'm an egotistical knob. I've been finding it really helpful to sort through all my old memories. There's a lot of stuff I've never thought of before, especially in relation to weight gain and that type of thing. It's a good thing, not to dwell in the past but to get an understanding of it in order to learn and move on.
Thinking about when I was younger has made me remember how much joy I got from drawing so today I went to an art supply stores and got a sketchbook and a very nifty pencil kit thing - it is a fold over wallet with colour pencils, lead pencils, rubber, pencil sharpener etc. I love it. I really want to get stuck into creating some Art. Well if not art, then something. I spent three years at art school just to realise that I care more about the process of creating, that feeling of being wrapped up in the actual doing, than I ever will about the finished product. It's taken me even longer to realise that that's okay. It is great to have things in life that you do for the pure joy of doing it rather than for any other reason.
Finally, I posted on the forum over at Diet Club, but thought I should post here as well. I'm looking for people who are interested in going on some fun runs with me. If you live in Melbourne and are interested, then check out the Spring Into Shape fun runs and then leave a comment or something. Me, fun running, I mean walking. Who'd have thunk it?
I think it is great that you have something that you enjoy doing and the outcome is irrelevant. I find typing very therapeutic - I think on of the reasons some of my posts are so long !!!!! I miss mailing my folks every day because it was time I could just sit and let me fingers go.
