One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


The Most Creative Comment EVER! :)

21 Comments 70 views

A few days before Christmas I wrote a post about making money with my blog. Whether or not responding to the original comment/question was the right way to approach the topic, I did and it gave me an outlet to explain my position very clearly.

My response inspired quite a few comments and I appreciated reading everyone support, suggestions and thoughts. One comment in particular made me simultaneous laugh and and cry. Jenn, from the bottom of my heart thank you for such a creative, entertaining, FABULOUS comment. I really consider it my favorite Christmas gifts. :) (note: I added links for those that may not know some of the references.

Thanks again Jenn, you’ll never know how much you touched me.


I feel the conviction to use this occasion to take action with this documentation.
Not that you need confirmation, validation and affirmation, but you need to know that you have my appreciation. Along with the rest of your Bloggin’ population (Blog = contraction for web log).

The birth of your son led to a nutrition investigation which led to weight reduction and eventual physical transformation. You made an invitation to the nation as you shared your new information, where you to made the proclamation that you received satisfaction from your Bloggin’ population. We have watched your progression and are in awe of your motivation.

With an obsession for food and a passion for computers, you laid the foundation for an amazing profession. What gumption! You even took a demotion with your newly chosen vocation. My impression is that your decision came with some hesitation, but your little addition (“The Toddler”) helped the decision. Now he gets more of your devotion, admiration and attention.

Upon my own reflection, I received a sudden intuition (epiphany by definition). I shared with you my ideation about set-point and my own complication with weight reduction. Although you receive an inundation of e-mails from across the nation, you gave personal recognition through communication and more inspiration.

Now, I wait in anticipation for the next installation of your latest invention from your imagination, which you add to your blogging collection. Plus, a photo composition of your food creations creates the causation of salivation. I can see the caramelization now. With your recipe directions, I seek transportation to purchase the grocery acquisitions although some require refrigeration. Your creations put an end to starvation.
However, you do caution about portion and moderation, yet without deprivation. Hmm… What was that last beverage concoction? Oh yes, it was mint tea and chocolate syrup – what a combination! You add a whole new dimension to digestion (or is it ingestion? I know it’s not indigestion).

You never use fiction or fabrication, but you do have conviction. You were even honest when you had an operation. Upon closer examination during my retrospection – I have no objection, nor do I need justification when you receive restitution for the addition of a new fashion dimension.

It would take a stretch of the imagination to think your intention would be to create a false impression. Solicitation is not a violation (well, in some States it is!). But, you get my intention. Move ahead with your vision of expansion, you’re in a great position. You will be met with a warm reception.

And you do this all from the location of not a mansion, but your little workstation? Without charging monetary admission? Did I mention that you are an inspiration and deserve a standing ovation?

I do have one final important question – Are you in this for the duration? Because if not, I have a confession – I will experience an emotional reaction, maybe even hyperventilation. In addition, my family will make the observation at the depletion of nutrition provision through meal stagnation. I would be in a state of confusion and discombobulation.

Roni, in my opinion – You are a champion! One in a million. No – one in a billion, one in a trillion, one in a zillion (and that’s no exaggeration!).

With Gratification,

Oh! and Jenn…. Definitely in it for the duration! (I’d come up with something that rhymed but I’m not as clever as you! :)
