Blogging For the Greater Good

I want to send a big Thank You out to my friend Big Clyde at The Clydesdale Project. To be honest with you all, I have not been feeling it this week at all. My diet has been healthy and within my calorie allowance, but the exercise has not been coming easily. Right now, due largely to inspiration from Clyde, I am wearing running clothes and will be heading out later this evening for my C25K run. Thanks again, Big Clyde and all the other fitness/weight loss bloggers who pique my thoughts in the direction of better living every day.

So this is how this works, aye?! Jack Sh*t has posted often about how much blogging has helped him in his journey. At this point in my journey, I am in quasi-maintenance. I am 10 pounds away from goal, but some of my habits have shifted from loss to maintenance. When I first started I could lose 6 pounds in a week, while now losing 1 pound here and there makes me smile. Most of the time just not gaining makes me very happy. I can see blogging being a huge aid in helping me to maintain for the long term.

A few blogs very worthy of recognition (in no particular order):

Dr. Fatty Finds Fitness
Responsibility 199
Losing Weight after 45 is a B*tch
The Daily Diary of a Winning Loser
The Anti-Jared
Bitch Cakes

And, of course...

The Clydesdale Project
Jack Sh*t

I have been reading most of these blogs throughout the process of losing 80 pounds and I cannot thank the writers enough.

MC, thank you for the recognition here. Very happy you enjoy what is happening over on my blog. Clyde & Jack are on my regular routine, but not all of these others you have listed here are. I shall certainly check them out based on your recommendation.

Not feeling but still mustering the will to do it often does wonders for rekindling the desire for more. Let us know how that run went and if you feel better for it.

Wow, thanks for the kind words! I am so glad that I could give you a boost now and then. Your comment the other day on mine did the same for me. Brilliant words: I wasn't in the "zone", but went running anyway...I guess I can fake it until I make it" (something like that).

Keep up the great work!
