Weigh in...updates..and opinions..OH MY!

Let me first start out by letting you know I weighed in today I lost 2.0 lbs! Yay! I was a little scared because the last Sunday and Monday I did not do so hot. But I will proudly take that 2.0 lbs.

This past week (starting on Tuesday) I really worked hard. I rode my exercise bike everyday and on Wednesday I started the 30 day shred. I ate well and I feel good.

On to my opinions. I know there has been a lot of talk about someone taking other bloggers daily posts and using them to make their own post for the day.  Everyone has their own opinion and there own way of doing things.  Not everyone is going to do it the same way.  There are many ways people have lost weight.  I follow bloggers who have gone the surgery route if this works for you when nothing else did good for you.  That is what you choose for yourself.  I follow bloggers who are on weight watchers if this works for you great! I follow bloggers who decide to get out there and exercise and cut back on what they eat.  Good for you! The point is all of us weight loss bloggers are out there trying to figure out that magic way to lose weight and keep it off.  And I think most all of us know there isn't any magic to it.  You have to find what best works for you.  All of us are in the same boat.  I myself turned to blogging to have a support system and help me along my way.  I hardly think "finding something hilarious" about the faults other bloggers admit on their blog is support.  I think you can get your point across with out saying something down right nasty.  I think it is "hilarious" you try to justify your blogs by saying "you don't think your better than anyone".  I really think you like the negative attention.  How would you like it if other bloggers picked apart what you wrote?

I have been doing a little reading over on that blog.  He says....Here is my plan. I will be starting the diet of a pre-op gastric bypass patient. 60 days worth, two weeks pre surgery, two weeks post surgery and then 4 weeks of after care. All without a single stitch. If you have the nerve, if you want to really lose some weight. Then he goes on to say... we will follow the same plan, and we will get thinner and healthier together. we will get this done on a plan that I know works. No bullshit, no cheating, a real commitment for 60 days. If you start, I expect you to stay. Bravery would help, as will permission from a doctor if you are at risk of dying.  Isn't it ironic he says they will get healthier and risk of dying in the same paragraph? "Hilarious" if ya ask me.  So eating a diet made of chicken broth and pudding is healthy?  Hardly.  I agree with you, you will get thinner...but for how long. Do you plan to eat that way for the rest of your life? Losing weight is a lifestyle change not a diet. You need to modify your eating habits for life not for 60 days.  DUH!  You have so much advice and your bullshit way of thinking is ludicrous. 
I could go on but I'm not gonna spend my time on it.

Have a great night everyone!


  1. Good job on the loss! I agree, every one has to find what works for them and it's not the same for everybody.I certainly don't get the "blog battle". You can't fault anybody for doing what they think is the best way to do something for themselves.

  2. :) Congrats on the 2 pound loss. The whole blog battle thing has been a shitstorm, huh? We just do what we do, with some bold face faults and also glowing successes... Just hope the success is more often than anything else.

  3. Congrats on the 2 lb loss this week! I support everyones way of losing weight as long as its healthy and your doctor knows what your doing. What everyone needs to keep in mind you need to make healthy changes for the rest of your life, not temporary or the weight will come back. I follow all sorts of people too with their different methods, sometimes it's interesting reading what others will do to lose the weight!

  4. That guy is such a jerk. He has lost weight before and gained it back. I just don't know how anybody can be so high and mighty when he was (and is) in the same boat - fat. Strange guy - no life - IGNORE.
