It has been over three years now, and I am still a weight loss blogger.
I never made the switch. I never switched to being a fitness blogger and start yelling at people with all caps ( COME ON PEOPLE!!!! GET MOVING!)
I did not switch to be a health blogger and talk about farmer’s markets. The one I went to close by sold kettle corn.
I am not an every day blogger. I do not think you really want to hear about my life…
“Hi all! Today my dog sh*t on the floor and my wife was about to kill her. Then, my son threw his sippy cup for no reason :). After that….”
I also never made the switch to the “I say I am a health blogger but not really” blogger who is slender, yet posts pictures of fattening Starbucks coffees and fried foods.
No, I am a weight loss blogger.
When I explain it, I try to tell people that each genre of blogging is like a chess piece. The weight loss bloggers are not on the chess board. We are playing Boggle. Because everything boggles our minds.
For three years I talk about losing weight. How I did lose weight. Struggles with food. How I was not able to do things that normal people could do.
I thought after losing weight I would be normal. My mind would switch and I could post about kettlebells and other fun things.
Yet, I still see things differently.
A weight loss blog’s life is around five months. The very strong ones are around for a couple of years strictly talking about weight loss.
I have done this for three plus years.
For a while, I was not thrilled about being a weight loss blogger. I wanted to be more.
Now I embrace it.
So I am tipping my scale to all the true weight loss bloggers out there.
We are one of a kind.
