Time to make a change…o

Life Changing Journey

That’s really what this is all about. Oh sure I wanted to lose weight (and A LOT of it) but more importantly I wanted to find the life that I deserved to live.Ā  When I started down this path of getting healthy I didn’t know what to call my blog. I picked the easiest name I could think of and part of me wanted to put my weight in there as a proving point that I could lose it.

I’ve grown to love my blog and have become very attached to the name 263andcounting but it doesn’t fit anymore. I’m not 263 pounds. I’m far from it and will NEVER see that number again. I’ve wanted to change the name for a long time. It’s a hard process. It’s almost like changing the name of a beloved pet, your best friend or even you car (I know you named your car – we all do). I’ve spent months waiting for the perfect name to come to me. I didn’t want to jump the gun and use the first thing that I felt fit or that sounded clever. I wasn’t going for a play on words or anything that had to do with weight loss as the main focus of the name.

Losing weight is not my focus any longer.

I’ve been using the acronym LCJ for a long time now. It has begun to spread throughout the blogging community and has become the foundation for my success in not only losing weight but with living life to my fullest potential. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it sooner but like I said I’ve been waiting for the perfect name to come to me.

I’m ready to take this journey to the next level. So many ideas are bouncing around in my head I can hardly contain them. I’m excited to see where I’m going. I’m excited to take you with me. This is not about the destination…

It’s about the journey.

kind of like when I went to get my tattoo and couldn’t figure out what I wanted it to say..
um, Live deliberately.
my motto.
sometimes it’s so close we go cross eyed trying to see it.
Good name.
