My blog "Escape from Obesity" was nominated for Best of Blogs 2007! I am so excited! It is one of the top ten finalists in Best Health/Fitness Blog. I know some of you liked my blog so if you wouldn't mind voting for it, I would be honored. It would mean so much to me to win this...

Anyway here is the link to vote:

You can vote once a day if you want to but even one vote would help.

And if you haven't seen my blog yet, the link is in my signature. I hope this is not too much of a "shameless plug" but honestly the whole point of my blog is to get the word out there that people CAN lose weight. I mean, if I can do it, anyone can. It's so hard but it is worth it!

Lyn, I will vote for your blog. I enjoy it very much. It's so honest.

I would be happy to vote for you. I read your blog all time and I love it. You are very honest and are able to put into words what a lot of us are feeling and going through but don't know how to recognize it or describe it.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us, and helping us understand ourselves better through reading about you.
Keep up the great work!

I voted.
I think it's going to be long night for me cos I have to read it all. Thank you for putting in words all those fat person feelings (I found myself in so many of your posts).

I voted for you and bookmarked the site so I can vote daily. I really enjoy your blog.

I voted too!!!! I'll try to vote again and again. Your blog, as I've mentioned before, is incredibly inspiring.

Do you get a good prize if you win?

05-16-2008, 01:17 AM
Thank you all SO MUCH. I don't know if there is a prize, I kinda think it is more of a way to get more people reading the blog and also if I ever turn it into a book it would help snag a publisher. I never, EVER would have considered that when I started this blog. I just wanted someplace to put down what I was going through trying to lose weight. I had no idea even 3 or 4 people would ever read it or be interested in it. It's pretty candid. That's the whole point for me... and also if I can help one person get out of the fat prison, it was worth it!

Lyn - I just voted for you.

I have to admit that I have never read your blog before, but I just went to have a look to see why everyone is saying how wonderful it is.

Well... you have another fan! I absolutely love the way you express yourself and let us all into your life, the good, the bad and the ugly.;)

I look forward to reading more of your entries, but I had to leave your page or I would have been there all night. I read so many things that I have thought of or encountered along my own journey and it is always great to get that feeling that "YES, someone else understands, and has gone through that as well."

Thank you for helping to make the world a better place, in so many ways. I believe that, by telling your story, you are helping people physically and emotionally to improve their lives. I would love to be able to do the same thing, but I don't seem to be able to keep regular entries up. I also want to write a book, about losing the weight, but also about the struggles of maintenance that you don't hear about, more emotionally than physically. Perhaps one day I will commit to writing about my journey as much as I did to the journey itself. Mind you, the journey never ends when the purpose is to improve your health and lifestyle in general. Oops... I'm rambling.

Take care,
