Blog Friendships

I started blogging regularly back in 2009 after losing my weight and have really met some marvelous friends out in the blogger world!  I have a favorite blogger section in my Google Reader and one of those is Treadmill Truth by Rachael.  I had such a wonderful surprise this morning when I read her blog award post to find that she has given me this award due to the fact I've inspired her in some way.  Let me tell you, that is why I am here!  I love to write, but mainly I want to help others succeed in their weight loss journeys.

So, part of this ritual in blog world is when you get an award you have to list a few things about yourself that no one knows.  Well, my personal info is limited here in the internet world, so I won't go to far on this and please excuse me if I repeat a few from my last blog award post.

  • I am now an avid exerciser!  After 2 years of maintaining my weight and exercising, I love to run and lift weights!  I never thought in my life I'd be that person, but I am now.
  • I love dogs.  I use to be a cat person had them all my life until Pongo came into our lives back in 1998.  We lost him for 3 days in one of our nature parks back in 2005, and we got him back.  I always believed he was our miracle doggie.  I miss him so much, we had to put him down last September he was very sick and he was 13 years old.
  • My favorite color is red!  I have a red BMW, I have red hair not real and a red FT7 Polar watch.  

That's all I have this time around, hopefully its enough.  Now, on to passing this award onto other fellow bloggers.  I have so many favorites, and I don't mean to leave anyone out.

I hope this little award helps you in continuing inspiring others!
