You are Special…

19 comments

“Why did you decide to lose weight?””….ummmm….because I weighed  252 lbs?!?!?  It’s not rocket science…

I’m one of many…I’m one of THOUSANDS out there, especially online, who have lose weight.  A lot of weight. 

As special as I may feel, I’m not that special….online.

Everyone loses weight.  Everyone works out.  Everyone sets goals.  Everyone meets their goals.  Every wants to run.  Everyone will run.

I’m not special online.

Everyone struggled…everyone has their own “roadblock”….everyone has their own “fight”…and everyone will win their own “battle”…so I’m not that special online.

You sent me a tweet….it made me feel special.

You sent me a direct message…it made me feel special.

You wanted to send me something…it made me feel special.

THEN….

you see someone else get all the same things!!  You hear/see the same talk…”oh we love you… you’re great…what an influence….”

All of a sudden… you’re not special…online….anymore…

BULLSHIT!!!!!!!!

Have you lost 100 lbs????  Have you lost 50 lbs????  Have you lost 20 lbs????  Have you lost 5 lbs????

If so, then you are my hero!!

This is not high school…what is the average age of most healthy living bloggers anyways??  C’mon!!

You don’t need to participate in any #fitblog #sheblog #blogher #blogit #beerit (what?) #iblog #youblog #webblog #mymomblogs #yourmomblogs #yourmomsmomblogs #youstink

YOU ARE SPECIAL!! YOU ARE WORTHY!!

I am not trying to downplay any of these *awesome* associations…I’m just saying….

YOU ARE SPECIAL….YOU ARE UNIQUE…YOU ARE ONE OF A KIND…

DON’T LET ANYONE…EVER….TAKE THAT AWAY FROM YOU!!

  3. Oh my. You know, some days, when you click on a blog post that RESONATES very loudly, it's because you really needed to read something.

    This blog post is it.

    From a weight loss perspective, from a blogging perspective, from a PR perspective, this echoes so much of where I am at.

    Thank you.

    (It goes without saying that I am now going to trawl through your whole blog. And will be following you.)

  9. thank you so much for posting this today. I've been struggling a bit with my weight loss lately and feeling un-special. I need to remember I have lost 66.8 with WW, and even though I still have a ways to go, I am AWESOME and I will succeed. I am worth it.

  11. Love this post! First time posting on your site and felt like I had to stand up and say AMEN SISTER! I sorta felt like Fit bloggin etc feels sooo "clicky" to me and so I feel like I can't go but also feel I would benefit from going. But I dont blog but I lost 129 pounds and am a WW leader. I find the online coaching medium very interesting. Oh well thanks for calling it like it is. That takes some guts--let me guess you were never in a click? Well I think U rock and congrats on all you have achieved and continue to achieve. Keep it up girl!
