150 postings...150 days

Today I am writing the 150th posting to my blog and thinking back to the days leading up to deciding to publicly discuss my weight loss. If you have followed me from the beginning, you know that the Academy Award nominated movie Julie and Julia was my inspiration for blogging.

I had not tackled blogging before this “project” but I do write non-fiction, “how-to” books and articles. So, telling people how I am working through losing 50 pounds in a forum that is free and easily accessible seemed the right way to do it.

I am asked if I ever have a day when I am faced with nothing to write about…not often is my answer, but it does happen. It’s just like writer’s block when working on a book. It’s not really that you have nothing to say; it’s more about being in the state of mind to say it.

This week, for example, I am knee deep in preparing to launch the supercollar®, my company’s dog collar with a built-in retractable leash, on HSN in March. My mind is focused on the many steps involved in taking a new product to market, especially when the market is the 93 million households that get HSN.

All of these months of being on Weight Watchers help me to go on autopilot with my eating. But, it would be easier for me to write this blog about supercollars® rather than losing weight because that’s what I am thinking about most of the day…and night.

And now it’s back to work on supercollars®. No rest for the weary, but excited, entrepreneur.

Talk to you soon.

  1. Thanks for all you postings Jane. I too am a 58 year old woman on a mission to lose 50 lbs so I look forward to your daily postings and enjoy each and every one of them. Good luck with your supercollar. I'll be sure to buy one for my "granddog".
