I just tried to lose a few pounds doing the 30 Day Shred, but didn’t lose 1 pound. Which site do you suggest I follow to drop a few? Your card has a few options, but I wanted to know which one you think would work for me. I have about 14 post baby pounds to lose.
Unfortunately, none of my sites will actually help you “drop a few.” I don’t have any quick loss secrets or plans or diets to share. My entire online presence started because I thought blogging would help me stay accountable on my goal to lose weight and it did. Five years and 70lbs later I have a collections of sites that have all become creative outlets for me…
Roni’s Weigh (http://ronisweigh.com) is my journal that helped me lose the weight. I journaled my weigh ins, shared my feelings, tips, and ideas. I used the site as a form a therapy and it gave me something to focus on besides the number on the scale. I continue to blog here to give weight loss motivation and share my continued story of how I’m maintaining the loss.
GreenLiteBites (http://GreenLiteBites.com) is a place where I share my food ideas that are a little bit lighter. Things that I ate while losing and are eating while maintaining. I use this site to motivate people to cook more at home and try new healthy things they may be hesitant to try. Since I’m a mom I also like to inspire others to cook more with their kids and involve the whole family in making healthy food choices.
BlogToLose (http://BlogToLose.com) is a community I started so others could use the power of blogging and an online community to help them reach their own goals. I had so much success blogging my weight loss that I thought creating an online community for others where they can find the support they want and need would be an easy way for me help others. I realized not everyone has the desire or time to create their own blogs and build a community online like I did. Why not make it easier for people to harness the power of blogging without the overhead as it requires a lot of work.
I have people that email me and thank me for helping them lose the weight but I can’t take the credit for their loss. They did ALL the work to make that happen. All I do is share my story and thoughts on weight loss.
I’m sorry Jenna, I didn’t know how else to approach your question as I’m not sure I have the answers you seek. I think it’s great that you started the 30 Day Shred but you didn’t talk at all about what your eating and in my experience that is a more important factor in actually losing weight. Again, that’s just my opinion based on what worked for me.
I hope that helps shed some light on my sites and I hope you are able to find the help you need to lose the weight. I would suggest joining BlogToLose if you’d like to get a little support while trying to lose but at the end of the day you have to find what works for you.
