February 16, 2012 marked one year from the first day of my project. I had started it with the intention of using it as a weight loss tool and though it helped in some ways, it was completely useless in others. I began to just feel like it’s OK to eat what I do as long as I post it, which wasn’t the intention.
I did however lose some weight, but it was a combination of thinking twice about eating as much as I normally would (shocking I know) and working out more. I got a trainer and started playing tennis.
Once I started seeing results from the increased activity, I started to dread posting my food and drink intake, but committed to at least making it a full year. Unfortunately, on January 31st, 2012 my father suffered a heart attack that resulted in a triple bypass surgery on Tuesday, February 7th, 2012 – I stopped the blog on the 5th of February, 11 days short of one year. This experience really opened my eyes in a way that these hundreds of pictures couldn’t do. Since then I have already begun a much healthier diet and feel great about it.
I thank all of my friends, family, coworkers, clients and business associates for their patience, intrigue and support of pausing between conversations and meetings to take pictures. If for nothing else than showing that you supported me in whatever wacky project I was doing. I do want to continue doing a blog but haven’t quite figured out what it will be about just yet. Stay tuned!!!
