Divas & Champions Top Blog Award

A number of people have asked me what my favorite blogs are. A difficult task since there are so many wonderful ones out there and so many talented people sharing their thoughts, dreams and trepidations when it comes to the goal of being the best we can be, healthy and fit. I want to present my four top blogs with the Divas & Champions Award.

Four blogs immediately come to mind as being unique and uplifting so, in no particular order, here they are:

  • Snack Girl - Lisa always has interesting ideas and honest reviews of new products to try. I've found some great ideas and yummy food which I now include in my overstuffed pantry of healthy foods.
  • The 1972 Retro Experiment - Mimi not only has a great sense of humor (necessary in order to eat some of the Retro Weight Watcher's diet food she prepares) but is original and just plain fun! If you haven't checked her out you are in for a treat.
  • The Daily Diary of a Winning Loser - Special kudos to Sean, who has been sharing his inspirational journey to lose close to 300 pounds and has almost reached his goal. He is brutally honest and full of insight. When you have a particularly trying day, visit Sean. Reading about his experiences will help you put things back in perspective. He's a winner for sure!
  • Bar Mitzvahzilla - Linda is one of a kind. Full of humor, insight and originality, she draws on her family background and her religion and comes up with wildly interesting posts that always keeps me coming back for more. She definitely has a talent for writing and asking provocative questions. Although she is not a weight loss blogger I have included her because she offers a great change of pace.
So there you have it, some great reading. If you haven't visited these blogs, you ought to. I invite you to give your own Divas & Champions Awards to the blogs of your choice. There are so many deserving people out there, what's your favorite blog?

I am a follower of Linda's blog and a big fan. Hers is one of the few non-diet/weight/fitness blogs I read. Love her:) I am going to check out the others.

Thanks for sharing those four great bloggers. Love the retro ww cook book blog. I found a old WW cookbook at a yard sale and honestly, never thought about cooking and blogging about those recipes. Great concept.

Thanks for your support earlier.
