My Visual Pyramid, Blogging

Posted: November 2, 2012 in Mission

I introduced My Visual Pyramid HERE.

Recall, each block I add to My Visual Pyramid represents a reason for being better, for losing that pound, for getting healthier, for achieving this purpose.

Today I am proud to announce I have earned the right to another block to My Visual Pyramid…

Reason 91 – Blogging, it’s primarily benefit is accountability. When I blog consistently & sincerely, I lose weight; so I must blog.

The picture I added to my pyramid is a snapshot of my blogs masthead. I like dark and bold colors, and I do like the color theme of my blog. The reality however is I am not a dark personality, far from it. However I am bold, sometimes to a fault.

Blogging about weight loss can be a dark topic. Think of the many bloggers you read and how many of them not only struggle with weight loss but other associated diseases such as depression or addiction.

Blogging gives folks an outlet that otherwise they wouldn’t have to express themselves about the darkness they struggle to evade. When we express ourselves, we engage in conversation about our burdens, and we increase our potential to overcome them.

When I blog, and do with intent, I win my weight loss battles. When I step aside from blogging, from the engagement of it, I am not as effective in my weight loss mission and have too often succumbed to relapse. Guess I better stick to consistent & sincere blogging!

Thus far I have built My Visual Pyramid as follows; my blocks and their reasons…

Reason 101 – Family, they depend on me for many things; wisdom, guidance, support, and most of all love.

Reason 99 – Cathy, my wife. She is the love of my life and I desire to love her for may decades to come.

Reason 98 – The USA, I am a proud American. I’ve served this nation and always will through it’s think and thin times.

Reason 97 – Faith, that there is a greater purpose for the brief time we are given to live life.

Reason 96 – Knowledge, Tomorrow I embark on my Master’s Degree. I will hunger for knowledge to my last day.

Reason 95 – Happiness, being happy is a great place to be; it is infectious and I want to catch more of it.

Reason 94 – Sex, life is to be enjoyed physically and mentally. Sex satisfies both and the leaner I am the more satisfied we are.

Reason 93 – Graduations, mine, my wife, my kids; seeking education / celebrating achievement should be a never-ending quest.

Reason 92 – Laughter, natures antidote against all forms of agony, it triggers healthy changes in in our attitude. More LOL please!

Reason 91 – Blogging, it’s primarily benefit is accountability. When I blog consistently & sincerely, I lose weight; so I must blog.
