Howdy!

In my previous post, I mentioned that I wanted to narrow the focus back to my weight loss journey.

A month later…I’m finally getting around to doing that, but I decided to do it via a whole new blog.

Basically, I’m not the same person I was back in 2009, and even though I’m still trying to lose weight, I’m not really on the same journey either.

So I decided that a clean slate was in order, and have launched Steve is Getting Fit.

This blog will stay, but will no longer be updated.  I may decide to do something later with it, but for right now it was act as an archive of 2009-2013.

So hopefully you’ll follow me over to the new blog (and update your RSS readers as such, sorry about that).

I promise to be a bit more consistent in my posting too. :)

I flaked on quitting the blog, and while I am glad at did, I’ve just been sort of starting at it for a few days, trying to think about what I want to do with it.

Part of me considered deleting all the previous posts, and starting from scratch, in something of a “reset”…but a lot (okay, one or two) of my past posts are pretty awesome, and I don’t want to lose that.

Another part of me want’s to renarrow the focus, at least for now, on the weight loss journey.  I’ve been blogging about weight loss for over three years now though…so I don’t want to end up just rehashing previous posts and topics.

Yet ANOTHER part of me want’s to make this into a blog about getting my life on track in general.  That’s kind of the way it’s been going for a while now anyway, but my method of “getting my life on track” involves a lot of “throwing shit to the wall and seeing what sticks,” and it’s led to some pretty random happenings.  Prime example:  Last month I was applying to Graduate schools in hopes of getting into an Emergency Management Program.  Now?  I’m trying to teach myself Adobe Creative Suite in hopes of maybe getting into graphic design.  There isn’t much of a rhyme or reason to any of it right now, and while documenting all of that would make for an interesting experience, it would make me come off moreso as a big ol’ indecisive mess.

That’s what I am though, a big ol’ indecisive mess.  Guess I should own that, huh?

I don’t know.  We’ll see what happens, I guess.  The only thing I know is that I’m probably going to drop the “FTW” in the blog name soon.  I own “iamstevegray.com,” and we’ll probably be shifting things over in that direction.

You know those scenes in movies, where two people part ways, thinking they’re making the right decision, only to turn around and run into each others arms moments later?

Yeah, that just happened with this blog.

Basically, I quit…and had a nice little goodbye post up and everything.  I put out some very real concerns, that I’ve lost the passion for blogging, and that I only kept it up for so long because I didn’t want to lose the friends I made, or the community I became a part of.

I hit submit on the post, posted the link, and I began regretting it almost immediately.  So I deleted it, and went all wishy washy on everyone.

Basically…yes, the passion I had for blogging is not there anymore.  But I feel that there is still plenty of story to tell, and people to connect with.

I’m not ready to throw in the towel on all of that just yet.
