THURSDAY THOUGHTS

Thursday Thoughts: It’s Raining Men!

22 Comments 2080 views

I can not believe how many weight loss bloggers there are anymore! I feel like an old lady trying to keep up but I am making an effort. I refuse to turn into a blog hermit! I decided to start blog hopping like I used to do when I didn’t have 5 sites, a full time job and a family. ;)

I embarked and went blog to blog learning about amazing wonderful people who are not only changing their lives but motivating and inspiring others by sharing their experiences.

Along my blog exploration journey I noticed more and more male weight loss bloggers. I never really gave it much thought before FitBloggin’ but Dude.. the weight loss/fitness blogging world has been dominated by women for quite some time. Maybe it was just my small circle but I can only remember but 1 or 2 guy weight loss bloggers when I first started in ’05 and now there are so many I can’t keep up!

So in an effort to spread the blog love may I present a few of my favorite male weight loss bloggers. If you did not make the list please leave your link in the comments. I’d love to check out more hot er, I mean motivational dudes. ;) Plus I know I left a few out simply because this post was getting WAY to long.

I LOVE it! THAT is why I continue to do what I do. So without further ado I give you all my crazy updates this week…

OK, I’m signing of with my food journal. Happy Thursday!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Great links to great guy bloggers. As a guy myself, I agree that the land of weight loss bloggers is increasingly becoming a gender neutral place..which is great. We can get inspiration from both sides, and ideas to improve ourselves too!

    LOL at your one point fruit policy except for bananas! I pretty much do the same thing.

    Lots of those blogs are new to me so I will be checking them out. There seems to be an endless list of healthy living blogs and it is so much fun to ones that you can relate to. They are as varied as can be!

    Hi Roni!
    It’s Ed from Ed & Ashley’s 5 Minute Show! We met last year and I’m so excited to hear you’ll be moderating a panel on fitness! I’ll be at BlogHer too (I’m doing a Geek Lab!), so hopefully we can run into each other. I’m just starting out in my healthy lifestyle journey, so BlogHer will be a totally new perspective this year.
    Hope you have a great weekend,
    Ed

    I’ve blogged off and on for awhile about my weight but since I’ve joined Weight Watchers it is great finding other WW bloggers for tips and tricks.

    Awesome Erin! I’m sure I’ll see you. I spend most of my time at the geek lab. :)

    Thanks again for the shout out! Being a male blogger in this world is tough as hell (especially the crap I get from my real life guy friends) but knowing that I’m helping people really helps ME!
