Today Blogger introduced their brand new template designer! Did you know this was coming?! It offers some very nice customization AND a great collection of background photos to choose from, courtesty of iStock. So, whatta ya think? Would love to hear your comments!
I'm hoping the new look helps to clarify the theme going on here at Losing My Behind. See, it's not just about losing weight. In fact, its really more about gaining things. Health. Vitality. Strength. The ability to get out and live an active lifestyle and not be stopped by weight and health limitations...and the courage to do things we never thought we could.
And, this is where the very 50ish looking bike in the new background comes in!
For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to participate in one of those bike trips through the hills of Vermont in the fall. I've had dreams about it, though not recently. I collected pamphlets a long time ago, but they are, hmmmm, somewhere, not exactly sure where. And, when I saw this background image, I knew I had found the new look for the blog . . . and felt this dream coming back to life!
We spend a lot of time thinking and talking about what we're giving up, what we're passing by in order to reach our goals. I say let's start focusing on what we're GAINING.
One thing is for sure: our bodies will grow small. And, in addition, as we do this very hard work ahead, our hearts are going to grow to be really, really BIG, making room for all kinds of new and old dreams. I want to be ready for that too, don't you?!
So, what gains are you seeing? What dreams have been revived while you're workin' it? Please share your thoughts in the comments below...your comments are such an encouragement, not just to me but to everyone who stops by.
I hope you like the new look, I'm so glad you're here!
Lookin' in the rear view mirror,
