33. LOW CARB FOR YOU

I like what Stargazey says about this low-carb blog: "Low carb works if you're male or female, young or old, short or tall, rich or poor, morbidly obese or maintaining a normal weight. I don't want this blog to focus on me. I want it to focus on you and how the low carb way of life can work for you in your journey to good health!" I couldn't have said it better myself!

That's all the blogs I have for you at this time. As you know, I like sharing about the new low-carb blogs that keep coming out, so feel free to share any you see with me at livinlowcarbman@charter.net. I'll be providing another great list of low-carb blogs soon. And see a full listing of low-carb blogs and web sites at my "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb Links" blog.

Oh my...Jimmy, I was scrolling down your list of blogs and the entire time thinking "please don't let mine be on there, please don't let mine be on there" and then bam! there it was! You have outed me! lol I'm teasin'. Really, what an honor to have made your list - I feel neither fabulous nor fun but I'll try a little harder now. lol As I told your dear wife, I am SO encouraged by your blog. I've read it off and on for about a year now, I guess, and it was you and your wife that helped to see that this can indeed be a permanent lifestyle change and not a temporary fix. I'm hoping that is what will make all the difference this time around. Thank you for all you do.

OK, to be perfectly honest, Getting A Life is not just a low-carb blog. I will talk about low-carbing there... a lot, because I'm doing it. But it's about me getting my life on track in general, and sharing stuff that I learn along the way. So sometimes it looks like a personal finance blog, sometimes like a weight loss blog, and sometimes I'll talk about other stuff. But THANK YOU for the mention. I will link to you in my blogroll, too, even though you didn't ask. :)

Seeing my blog on your list has inspired me to really take my Atkins resolve seriously. It's so easy to lose sight of what one is aiming for and I almost did. But seeing my blog on your list make feel that somehow I'm accountable because there might be people who are watching my progress. And that is inspiring! Thank you. :)
