Still on vacation in possibly-sunny British Colombia!
I am a girl of many interests. I love reading, writing, attending and discussing the performing arts, knitting, shopping, cooking and crafting. I like planning vacations and seeing new things. I like taking classes and stretching my brain. I like watching movies, doing crossword puzzles, trying new makeup looks. I like watching CFL Football (go Riders!), going to hockey games and playing with puppies. Oh, and blogging. I love blogging!
But since I started on my weight-loss journey, it seems like all of my hobbies have fallen aside. The time I spent knitting and reading and pursuing all of my other interests, I now spend replying to message boards, planning my meals, reading about fitness, health and nutrition and working out.
Focus is a good thing, but I wonder. Is this becoming obsessive, or am I just dedicated? Where's the line?
Lately I've been making an active effort to do more of my non-diet related hobbies in my down time. I started knitting this sweater, have read a few books, and am working on some writing projects. Oh, and this blog!
Do you ever feel like weight-loss is taking over your life? Is weight-loss your hobby? How do you balance it?
