Paying Forward Some “Oh My Blog” Love

Rita over at The Giggly Bits was kind enough to pass this love along to me close to two weeks ago and now I get to do the same! SO sorry Rita that it has taken so long for me to do this! I am honored that you chose me, and I’m sorry the day you gave this on to me was the same day I posted about taking a break. I do not want to wait any longer to pay it forward.

There it is all shiny and fabulous. So a big thanks to Rita and this is what I had to do to as the recipient of this honor:

1. Get really excited that you got the coolest award EVER! Done!

2. Choose ONE of the following options of accepting the OMB award:
(a) Get really drunk and blog for 15 minutes straight, or for as long as you can focus. If I drank enough to get drunk, I would fall asleep!
(b) Write about your most embarrassing moment. I just wrote about the time I pulled a pizza crust out of the trash can and ate it here.
(c) Write a “Soundtrack of your childhood” post. This would take way too many brain cells for me to do and I barely make it through the day as it is.
(d) Make your next blog a ‘vlog’/video blog. Basically, you’re talking to the camera about whatever. I’ve never done a vlog before and sadly, wouldn’t know the first thing to do.
(e) Take a picture of yourself first thing in the morning, before you do anything else (hair, makeup, etc) and post it. Well, here ya go!!

wake up sleepyhead!

I know, I know, I’m going to need to change my phone number so I don’t get bogged down by all the modeling agencies who are surely going to be calling me now!

3. Pass this award onto at least 3, but preferably more, awesome bloggers as yourself. Don’t forget to tell them.

Number three is the hardest part. There are so many really great blogs out there, it is really hard to narrow it down as to whom to pass this award on to. Though you all have inspired me and aided in my recovery, I’ve decided to chose some of you who are ahead of me and help me to keep moving forward.

1. Diane Fit to the Finish Diane lost 150 lbs over 12 years ago and has maintained her weight, despite being the mother of seven, yes SEVEN, kids! (I can barey manage two kids!) Diane is an inspiration in how to balance life, while staying fit and healthy.
2. Truth2BeingFit Though Jody doesn’t have an eating disorder, she is my idol as far as being 10 years older than me and looking as amazing as she does. Her blog gives great workout/fitness/health advice.
3. Big Girl Bombshell. Jules’ blog is full of very wise and thought provoking advice about life, eating and body image.
4. Honor My Health. Christie has great info about recovering from disordered eating, eating and living healthy, as well as interesting recipes.
5. Weightless. Margarita offers a wealth of information from a psychological standpoint regarding not just eating disorders, but other mental issues. Her sight is a great resource.
6. Healthy Girl. I only just started lurking on here, but am really enjoying this site and feel like I can learn a lot here.

If you have a moment and don’t read these already, please check them out. There are so many other blogs that I truly enjoy, I couldn’t possibly list them all but many of them are in my blogroll.

On another note, I got on the scale for the first time in a month. My jeans had been feeling less loose and I assumed that from that long mother’s day weekend of eating more than usual, along with the week of drinking regular soda instead of diet, that I had put on a few pounds, which would have been ok. Well, somehow I lost 1-1/2 pounds! And that was after a 1 pound loss last month.

Now while I’m not trying to lose weight, it just goes to show that the Intuitive Eating is actually working!!! Lord knows what part of my body the loss has come from, but there it was on the scale. So while I don’t want to lose any more weight, it now means after two months of not weighing/measuring my portions and counting calories that I am progressing and succeeding. This gives me hope, confidence and trust that I really can continue to just listen to my body and it will do me right.

One Day at a Time... Nurture myself... Awareness... Letting Go... Listen to my Body

    For a minute, I thought you’d somehow snapped an early a.m. photo of me. 🙂

    That’s awesome that you’re able to stay on your plan simply by paying attention. (Why did we make it so hard before?)

    I’m soo sorry it took me a whole day to get over here! I saw it yesterday and got busy. Thank you very much – you are extremely kind.

    And as far as managing 7 kids – sometimes I think it’s easier in a big family because there is always someone to play with!

    LOL! I love the sleepyhead picture! I am a distinct afro in the morning, so yours actually looks great compared to what mine would look like. 🙂

    Congrats on your blog award – I’m definitely checking those blogs out!

    AND congrats on your continued success with intuitive eating! It’s truly amazing how we don’t need all of the maintenance like counting/measuring like we think we do, in order to maintain (or even lose!) weight, right? I think our bodies must be onto something, here. 🙂

    love2eatinpa Reply:

    of course, i would love to have an afro of curls in the morning! lol!!!

    thanks so much, holly. i’m still a work in progress, but i’m slowly learning that i can really trust my body and myself to make the right choices.

    Thank you for the props! I too want to say congrats on exploring intuitive eating. I’ve done the same and it’s kind of brilliant and wonderful, isn’t it? Never thought I could feel so free and trust myself to give myself what I need. xo…Sunny

    yes, the intuitive eating was a huge leap of faith, but it is freeing and wonderful.
