Updating my blog roll soon- we are stronger together


Hello All!  I will be updating my blog roll soon.  We are stronger together. Let me know if you'd like your blog to be added (or deleted). 

Reading about other weight maintainers has been very helpful this year. Asking questions, trying things out, great topics. 

It's been very helpful to me to see  the different types of maintainers out there (see my post about it here).

It's a good thing that there is a large enough base of blogger maintainers. It was easier for me to look at a wide variety of practices so I could build my own best practice.

We are stronger together. There's a lot of overlap between the different groups of maintainers. Thanks for a great year everyone!

    1. Hi Leigh- you were on the blog roll, now I've added you to the maintenance page, too. :) Yes, more posts. I'm more of a weekend or late week poster. I think there will always be content!

    1. Lucy, your time will come!! I added you to my regular blog roll. I just remembered I have a maintainers page and a blog roll.....

  3. It is so positive to have a maintenance blog. So many people lose weight and start a blog but fall my the wayside. I love that some of us succeed AND maintain, after all - that really is the most important part and people need to know that it is possible.

    1. Lynda- you are /were already on the blog roll. I moved it up under the very long disclaimer. The list should be more visible now. You are so right- it is so important for people to know that it is possible.

    1. Norma, you are/ were already on the list. Moving it up. I learn a lot from you, and your followers. Not always my style, but you are very real. You remind me a lot of my first trainer on night shift at the hospital.

  5. I'd love to be on your blogroll as a maintainer. It is fun to find new folks to connect with and I usually find new favorites through current favorites!!

  7. Well, I haven't been blogging as much lately, but I need to! It helps keep me on track. I'd love to be included as I continue to work on my first year of maintenance. I learn so much from you and the others on your blogroll.

  9. We are strong together. You are 100% right. You never know who is having a crappy day that visits your blog and then they are totally turned around. :)

  10. I started looking for maintenance blogs when I was about a year out from my first maintenance level (it took me two years to loose my first 60 pounds, I held there for two years and then lost my last 20 pounds the next year and now have been at that level for 3+ years, it is never easy to summarize that all into a nice round number). Maintenance blogs were nearly nil at that time, when I was in weight loss, looking toward maintenance. (There were just a few who have actually gone on to regain and/or disappear.) A lot of the now maintenance people at various levels of holding/loosing again, were in weight loss when I was. (I feel like an old timer.) I love that there are actually enough maintenance people now for there to BE maintenance blog rolls.
