Help Boston Couple Who Lost 317 Pounds Win Blog Contest

I got an e-mail today from a lady named Beth Badore who created a health and weight loss support blog entitled "Melting Mama and Deflating Daddy: The weight came off, now the gloves do." Oh, I think I like this couple already! :-)

Beth told me how much she enjoyed reading my blog and invited me to check out hers. So I did.

Oh my goodness, you are not going to believe your eyes when you see the dramatic 317 cumulative pounds that Beth and her husband have dropped in just a little over a year!

It seems this 26-year-old stay-at-home mom's blog has become quite popular in the south Boston, Massachusetts area because it has been nominated in a local list of the top ten best blogs in the area. CONGRATULATIONS, Beth!

Here is a link to a scanned copy of The Patriot Ledger newspaper announcing the ten finalists for the contests which "Melting Mama and Deflating Daddy" is among.

South of Boston Media Group is hosting its annual "Battle of the Blogs" and is looking to crown the official South of Boston Blogger award from the ten finalist contestants.

Between July 11 until August 7, South of Boston is inviting readers to e-mail them at to tell them which blog they like the most and who should win the title of South of Boston Blogger.

I think the readers of "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb" could easily help out a fellow weight loss blog in this endeavor, right? Of the ten blogs in the contest, only "Melting Mama and Deflating Daddy" is a health/weight loss blog in the running. Can we help out Beth so she can win this contest?

After you submit your contest entry to South of Boston, be sure to send Beth an e-mail at to let her know you voted for her blog. Tell her "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man" sent you! When her blog wins, she'll have YOU all to thank for it!

07/15/2005 UPDATE: Here is the nominating e-mail I sent to South of Boston today:

Dear South of Boston,

I would like to nominate to win your Battle of the Blogs contest. This story of one couple's 317-pound triumphant weight loss victory undoubtedly provides inspiration and encouragement to any and all who have struggled with their weight their entire lives. While the other blogs are certainly noteworthy and have their own specific niche, I believe the "Melting Mama and Deflating Daddy" blog deserves to be named this year's best South of Boston Blogger title.


Jimmy Moore, "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Man"

I heard back from Beth after she saw my blog post and she is so excited about everyone helping vote for her blog. Show your appreciation for her and her husband's weight loss and vote for their blog today. Let's flood the e-mail box of South of Boston with so many nominations they'll beg us to stop sending them! LOL!
