No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I need to start this post with an apology. I literally fell off the planet and I'm sorry. I'm not making any excuses for myself, I've simply spread myself too thin.
Anyway, I'm back and I'm going to continue with some of the plans we made earlier this year to make the community more supportive. So a few things..
I just got a call from Amanda of MommyofTwoLittleMonkeys.com. She was contacted by an Associate Producer of the Dr. Oz show. They are looking for Hungry Girl fans who have lost at least 20 lbs and would like to meet her on the show!
It's a short turnaround time (they are taping Monday I think) and you would need to show before and after photos. If you are interested contact Raynard at …Continue
Happy New Years!
Many of you participated in a few chats we had scheduled in December and they were awesome! It was nice to get to know members a little better. Everyone shared such great tips and experiences.
We took a break over the holidays but I'm so excited to announce we now have 2 new Chat Leaders and will have a regular weekly chat schedule!
Please welcome Jules and Lexi. Both are active BlogToLose members and have their own blogs: Jules blogs…Continue
SO MANY FUN THINGS HAPPENING!
Sorry I had to yell. The forums have had a facelift and we've got new categories hopefully making it easier for you to find each other. Head on over to the Forums page to check it out. The new boards include:
First, real fast... I wanted to let you know we will be announcing new forums and forum moderators shortly. If you have any suggestion please share!
Second, I was contacted by Amanda G. Harp, M.A. a Doctoral Student at Clark University. She's doing a study about partners sabotaging weight loss efforts and I thought some of you may be interested in participating.
In Amanda's words,
I'm a trained couples therapist…
I want to take a moment to introduce the official BlogToLose Welcome Committee.
Please give a shout out to...Continue
Things are moving and a shaking over here in BlogToLose headquarters (my kitchen desk)!
First, let me thank everyone who applied to be a BtL volunteer. I am going through the emails this week and will be in touch shortly. I'm excited about the energy and willingness of our members. You guys rock!
You know who else rocks? Alexis! She's our latest Success story.…Continue
Ok, people it's time to step it up here on BlogToLose! I've read all your feedback (LOVED it ALL) and I'm ready to start rolling out a few changes.
First things first…. Moderators.
I'm looking for a few good BtL'ers that are interested and willing to take on a leadership role here in the community. I'm open to ideas you have, but I'm also interested in filling…Continue
MAN, I have a lot of shipping to do! Congrats to all the winners!

Hello fellow BlogToLosers! I wanted to take a moment to let you know I have NOT forgotten about you! I can't believe how much BlogToLose has grow from all the support you give one another. THAT is why I started it. "We" get "us" and now there's a spot for us to fine one another.
Anyway, life has been crazy with a new baby, but I'm getting into a groove and ready to make BlogToLose a priority again. I have so many ideas and just never buckled down to implement them. It's…Continue
I've been MIA here on BlogToLose again, but fear not! I have lots of fun things in the works! First I want to start with a fun GreenLiteBites Book Giveaway!
If you don't know, I self-published a book called GreenLiteBites: Favorites From the First 3 Years. It's a full color, photograph rich cookbook containing 80 pages of recipes and ideas for lighter, healthier meals from the my website GreenLiteBites.com. Here's a…Continue
I'm revisiting this old challenge because I'm DESPERATE. I just can't stop snacking after the kids go to bed!
Some of us do it out of boredom some out of pure exhaustion. We mindlessly munch while watching evening TV or grab something from the fridge while heading to bed (I just did that last night.) I don't think all night time eating is bad and I don't think we need to make some ridiculous unachievable goal like.. "I'm never going to eat after 7PM again,…
I'm not sure anyone has missed me but either way, I'm so sorry I've been MIA!
As you may know, I gave birth just a few weeks ago on St. Patrick's Day. I gained about 50lbs with the pregnancy and now have about 30 to shed. Of course I'll be using my blog to help me along the way and one of my goals is to start at least 1 challenge a month here on…Continue
Ok, so I can't called this a "Weekly" Challenge as I'm completely failing at the weekly part but it's still a challenge and that's the important thing.
This week I want you to BLOG! That's why we are here after all, no? And I know some of you have been doing a fabulous job of it but as I say on the BlogToLose "Plan", weight loss blogging has to be about facing your feelings. My challenge this week is get you to…
Holy new Members Batman! I have approved more members this week then in the past 3 months. I'm going to bet today's holiday has SOMETHING to do with it. It's a new year and weight loss goals are rampant!
I want new (and old) members to remember that this site isn't the answer to your weight…Continue

I bet you didn't realize today is a holiday. That's right, today is a very special day. It's New Month's Eve! Tomorrow starts a new month. It will no longer be November but December! What a chance to start fresh…Continue
Holidays ARE challenging. Especially one that completely revolves around FOOD. It's unescapable.
You may have the attitude that it's one day and it's not going to "kill" you. I TOTALLY agree. I remember my first Thanksgiving on Weight Watchers and it hit me like a ton of bricks...
"One meal cannot make you fat. One meal will not cause you to gain all the weight back."
I kept repeating that to myself over and over again.…Continue
Have you gotten a chance to try Subway's new breakfast options yet? I have and let me tell you.. HUGE fan of hash browns... HUGE! :)
If you missed a few posts back we had a little…Continue

Hey guys! It's about time for a new challenge, don't you think?
This one is totally inspired by a step class I took this morning. Now I haven't taken step in over 2 years but it was one of the first classes I ever braved when I joined a gym 3 years ago. I was scared out of mind. All these thoughts started swimming though my head...…
Ok is everyone ready for a new challenge? This one may be a little different but I'll explain where my inspiration is coming from. But first I need to check in on the longer challenge. Is everyone keeping up with Elaine's series on Roni's Weigh? So far she's posted...
