All Good Things

3 Aug

Last night, I spoke with one of my faithful blog readers and she instantly gave me what for.  She said, “I checked your blog and noticed that you haven’t posted anything for three weeks.”  She’s right, and I’m glad that she brought it to my attention.

The fact is, I’ve been meaning to write this posting for the last several days.  It’s now officially been a year since I started the 175by43 blog, dedicated to my journey toward weight loss and physical fitness.  My plan was to write down everything that I ate everyday on the blog and learn fitness tips from those who read my blog and responded.  Over the course the year, I learned quite a lot from a lot of people about proper diet, exercise, and healthy living.  I lost close to 50 lbs. and then leveled out around 185 lbs.

Recently, I’ve been using a free app called loseit to track my caloric intake and exercise output.  Honestly, if I would have found this a year ago, I may have chosen that route instead of the blog.  However, I’ve made many great friends over the course of this year who have helped me on my way to healthy living.  Many of you have cheered me on daily.  Thank you very much.

So, what happens now?  Well, I’ve heard it said “All Good Things Must Come To An End.”  Being a follower of Jesus, I’m not sure that’s always the case, but I do believe that it’s time for the 175by43 blog to come to an end.  So, tonight’s blog posting will be the last posting for this particular blog.

However, I love to write and many of you have expressed to me that you wish that I would continue and expand my repertoire.  So, in the next few days, I’m going to launch my new blog focusing on 4 different topics:  Health and Fitness, Church and Christian Living, Worship and Worship Leadership Issues, and Missions.  You should be able to tell the topic of each blog post based on the title.

Thank you all for helping me through this wonderful year of weight loss.  I hope that it’s meant as much to you as it has to me.

God Bless You,

John
