The 100 Most Inspirational Weight Loss Bloggers of 2013‏

I was checking the traffic to my blog this morning ,just to see where people come to my blog from, the majority were from the usual Facebook, twitter and but I spotted a new link and me being a nosey wagon, I had a lil click and found myself reading a post “The 100 Most Inspirational Weight Loss Bloggers of 2013”   I was absorbed in the reading and wondering how this was linking into my blog!

When I decided to start my blog it was to show off some of my attempts at nail art and to see if I could write. I read A LOT and it was in my head to start writing a few bits and pieces, so I started by buying myself a cute notebook, I thought I’d just write descriptions about my nails, and possibly write a few book reviews, I had kept a daily diary from the age of 12 – 20, and I had enjoyed the therapy of writing everything down so I wouldn't forget anything.
It turned out that I was awful at writing book reviews and I never posted any of the attempted film reviews! They were just too bad.

So I thought of the following quote and that is “stick to what you know”  I’ve been battling with my weight all my life and I’ve had so many failed weight loss attempts/plans.
So I decided that I would see if I could possibly write and rant about the woes and wonder of weight loss, and it seems to work and flow. People seem to understand where I’m coming from and can relate and for once in my life I feel like I’m not alone on my journey.

I once sat down to write a post on a topic that I thought I could talk a good bit about, when it came to the editing, I had gone off on so many different tangents about the same thing (kinda) that I had 3 posts ready to go out of that one. Its great when that happens, but rare for me.
I know I’m new enough to the blogging community, but I have been reading other blogs for a long time and think, I can relate to her, “she’s funny”, or I wish I could write like that and get my point across.  So it turns out that weight loss, weight gain, exercise fails, gluttony, emotional  and binge eating is what I know. Its all I’ve ever known really.
Its such a great release to be able to express myself through the medium of this blog and know that there are others out there that feel the same and are battling the same demons as myself. I know that these demons will be with me forever, but I also know that I’ve know figured out how to deal with them in a healthy way rather than trying to silence them with food and making my problem even worse. I need to be Positive Pippa all the time and get rid of Moaning Myrtle as much as I can, cuz we all have our good and bad days.. But eventually the good days should outweigh the bad days and that’s how you know your winning.

Ok I’ve totally gone off on a little tangent there now again! I’m sorry. I do have a point.

I found this blog today, I was working my way down the list, clicking into links and getting lost in other peoples stories and looking on enviously at some of the amazing before and after photos (seriously amazing, you should go have a look if you don’t believe me)

And I found the reason why my traffic source was linked to this page. BECAUSE I MADE THE LIST. Yip, you read that right. I’m number 41/100, I know the listings are in no particular order, but my jaw dropped when I saw that I had been listed. It has made my day to think that someone read my blog and thought it to be suitably remarkable to be included in a list like this, and the little synopses of my blog is lovely too, I‘ve pasted it below so you can see J

You might say Vicki’s weight loss blog is an up-and-comer. She’s using it as a platform to launch herself into meeting her 60-pound weight loss goal, and here’s the thing: she’s doing a darn good job. Reading through her blog, it will become very clear that no matter the ups-and-downs, Vicki’s commitment to losing weight and changing her life is wholesome and candid. She shares her food choices, her exercise routines, her enthusiasm and even the occasional let-down. Her blog is perfect if you’re looking to follow along with someone from the beginning - someone who will very likely get there soon.
