Happy New Year everyone!
Whew… I put a pair of jeans on this morning for the first time since being off for the Christmas holiday and they actually still fit!! I was so afraid I’d eaten myself into another size but thankfully that hasn’t happened yet. But if I don’t get a hold of it now, I’ll have to start wearing my fat jeans again!
Truthfully though, that is just another reason why writing has helped me. If I can put my mind to becoming a children’s picture book writer and actually get published than surely I can find that same strength and willpower to lose some weight! Getting published in 2011 has given me the power of positive thinking that I really never had before. Sure I’ve been positive about many things in my life; however it always seemed to go in reverse for me. EXCEPT with my writing! Positive thinking and working harder than I’ve ever worked on anything else in my life, has truly proven to me that I can do whatever I put my mind to and really want to accomplish. So losing some weight this year is definitely on my list of “positive” things I must complete in 2012. What’s on your list?
Of course I have lots of writing goals on my list as well. One of which is to try even harder this year to market my book The Pea In Peanut Butter. So the first thing on that list for 2012 is to giveaway a free copy of the book and a free copy of the coloring book version. I’ll be giving away one of each to two lucky winners! I will assign each comment a number and let a random number generator pick the winners. You will have until Thursday, January 12th to comment. Each comment counts as a chance to win as long as you follow the guidelines listed below.
