The Time Has Come

 “Take risks: If you win, you will be happy; if you lose, you will be wise.”

When I joined PriorFatGirl (almost) two years ago… it was a risk for me. It was a beautiful opportunity where I was exposing my most vulnerable self to… well, everyone and anyone who wanted to read my story.

Over the past two years, I’ve learned important lessons, I’ve developed amazing relationships, and I’ve recognized the person that I want to be. I have had so many opportunities as a Future PriorFatGirl that I would have not otherwise had. I am grateful for my two years spent blogging with Jen and the PFG Family.

But the time has come to move on. PriorFatGirl is bigger than I ever even realized. It requires (and deserves) so much attention, and let’s face it, I haven’t been giving it its due justice. Not because I haven’t wanted to, just because life happens. People change. The person I was two years ago, isn’t the person I am today.

As I move on from PriorFatGirl, I can only wish one thing; that people continue to fight the good fight. Fight your little heart out! I had a conversation a couple of months ago with Jen about what PriorFatGirl was for me and my journey. It used to be my outlet, my saving grace, my place to vent, celebrate, and connect with people who had a common struggle and similar goals as me. In my conversation with Jen, I came to the realization that it’s time for me to stop talking and start doing.

In the past few weeks, I have religiously tracked my calories, I have started Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred (day 12, baby!), and I have gotten back to the gym…. But I haven’t blogged about it.

Why? Well, because it’s more important about doing, for me¸ than to write about it for you. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE the PFG readers, I have met some of the most magnificent, intelligent people by blogging here… but at the end of the day, this journey is about me and putting my words into actions and for some reason, that wasn’t happening. So, for now, I take the pressure off of writing and put my energy into bettering myself.

I’m not GONE. I’ll still be active on Twitter (@MNLinds) and I have a feeling in the future, once I have a handle on everything, I will begin blogging again. I’ll begin blogging somewhere smaller, somewhere quieter, a place of my own. I have so enjoyed (and appreciated!) Jen opening up her space on the internet to allow me to share my story with you… but PriorFatGirl is JEN. It’s perfect for her; it’s not perfect for me anymore.

So instead of refusing PriorFatGirl the attention and dedication that it deserves, I am using this opportunity to find what is perfect for me.

Jen, thank you, SO much for believing in me; for allowing me to be myself here and to share my story, with no restrictions. I will be forever grateful to you for showing me what real passion is and knowing the feeling of someone who truly believes in you.

To everyone else, thank you, from the bottom of my heart for embracing me as a Future PriorFatGirl. For celebrating my successes along the way and letting me vent about my frustrations. I have met some of the greatest friends from being a PriorFatGirl contributor. This decision isn’t an easy one, it’s very bittersweet… but it’s necessary for me and my journey.

So, with that, all I have to say is, onward and upward my friends. I’ll see you on the flip side.

Thank you for making this a most amazing and memorable experience…. It’s something I will never forget.

xo,

Lindsay

    Although I will be stalking (I mean following) on twitter I wish you nothing but the best and will miss you around here! So glad to have been part of your journey here on PFG

  2. I suppose I knew this day was coming after the last time we chatted. I’ll always be thankful you had a place here on PFG and that we had a chance to become real life friends. Blogging or not, I’ll still be here for ya!

    Love ya, BBF! xoxo

  3. I totally see where you are coming from. Best wishes to you!!

    And BIG kudos for not giving up the fight!!

  4. I’m sad for myself that I won’t get to read up on your adventures anymore (I don’t have a Twitter account), but happy for you. Glad you are finding out what works for you – take care!

  5. I am so proud of you Lindsay and have so enjoyed seeing your tweets lately about the workouts you are doing! I look forward to keeping up with you on Twitter and seeing your progress. I have enjoyed your blog but I will enjoy even more knowing you are out there kicking butt and doing what is important for you right now! Be well!

    Hey Linds,

    From your updates on Twitter, it sounds like you are kicking some serious butt lately. I’ve had a lot of fun getting to know you (NY – will never forget it!), and I know you’ll keep fighting.

    This isn’t the end. I know that. And I hope I’ll get to see you again when I make my way up to Minneapolis in the future.

    Be well,
    Elle

  7. We’ll miss you here. But I’ll be sure to keep tabs on your progress on Twitter. Best of luck!
