OMG!! Has it Really been a Year???

Actually, more than a year since I started blogging. My first post was on April 21, 2009, and here it is April 28, 2010.

I know that a lot of bloggers get frustrated that their blogs aren't instant successes, racking up hundreds of followers immediately, but that isn't my case. I love and cherish each one of my 41 followers and love to read every comments posted.

I blog because I'm a writer, and a writer writes for no other reason than the compulsion to write. I started this blog because I believed I had learned valuable lessons from my own weight loss journey that I could pass on to others, but I also started this blog to keep myself inspired.

Whenever I read about new medical research regarding weight loss, the obesity epidemic among children or the ill effects that processed foods can have on health and weight, it inspires me to continue on my journey.

By posting new information here and commenting on it I pass on the information to my readers. You may be a small group, but if my writing makes even small changes in your own diets and how you feed your family, I believed I scored a success.


  1. Happy belated blogoversary! I really enjoy reading your blog!

  2. I also enjoy reading your blog. Happy blogoversary!

  3. If you want to lose weight and want to know the quickest way to lose weight, you can never go incorrect with water. Your body stores lot of water whenever you are dehydrated. This excess can be as much as 10 lbs which you do not necessarily need. In order to flush out this excessive water from your body, you can drink copious amounts of water to get rid of the excess. Drinking more water tells your body you are now hydrated and that you don't need replacement reserves, so the body ditches them.If you intend to lose weight quickly, then you must remember that fast weight loss doesn't last. Every time have at the back of your mind that you will almost certainly increase back all those extra pounds lost on quick weight loss plans. You should always remember that those extra pounds you are trying to lose was not gained overnight and you should not try to lose it overnight. It is a sobering thought, I know, but not many people want to know that as they are too occupied with the thought of how to quickly shed off those extra pounds.

  4. Does this mean only stupid people are suppose to be in dead end jobs? If so, then something is amok in the universe because some of the dumbest people I've met are in middle management. Is a nun not living up to her potential if she vows a life of poverty? Everyone knows Mother Teresa for her good works and she lived in poverty. Does that mean she wasn't living up to her potential because she wasn't rolling in dough? I worked in a middle management career job and was miserable, so I bailed. I went on a quest to find a place to live and a job that made me happy which led me back to a town where most of my family resides and to a job where I get to hang out with kids and play and create art. I knew there was some place and some thing that would be better for me and I wasn't going to stick myself in a rut and not look for it. Was it nice not having to struggle to pay my bills before? Of course it was, but I don't see how living alone and going to a job that I began to abhor was living up to my potential. But because I made over twice as much an hour as I'm making now, some would disagree and say that I walked away from my potential.Potential seems stupid and exhausting. Especially since it doesn't seem to have anything to do with being happy. And that's all I really want in life, just to be happy doing whatever I am doing wherever I happen to be doing it.

  5. I drop a leave a response when I like a post on a blog or I have something to add to the
    discussion. Usually it's caused by the passion communicated in the article I read. And on this post "OMG!! Has it Really been a Year???". I was actually excited enough to post a comment ;-) I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright.
    Is it simply me or do a few of these remarks look as if they are coming from brain dead people?

    :-P And, if you are writing at additional places,
    I would like to keep up with you. Would you list all
    of your communal sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed,
    or linkedin profile?
