So … way back in the beginning of March, I signed up for WEGO Health’s Health Activist Writer’s Month Challenge. The goal? 30 blog posts in 30 days, using the prompts they provide.
To be honest, it completely slipped my mind Monday. But I still want to participate — at least sometimes. Maybe less often than I originally intended, because I also joined NaRoMoWriMo — National Romance Novel Writing Month. The challenge is to write 40,000 words on a romance manuscript by the end of the month … It’s perfect, because I have a story that’s begging to come out — and a first chapter to perfect by June, so I can enter it in a contest.
- Introduce your condition(s) to other Health Activists. What are 5 things you want them to know about your condition/your activism?
- Share links to 3-5 of your old posts (or posts from other Health Activists!) that you think will help the newly diagnosed.
As many of you know, I’ve been blogging about weight loss — or my lack thereof — for a very long time … since 2009 here at my own blog, and before that through Blog To Lose.
It’s a journey … and one that’s never-ending. I struggle every day to find the “magic” formula for a healthy weight.
Here are a few of my favorite posts about my journey:
- I have a new rallying cry: My response to a blog post from Theodora that moved me very much.
- How old is too old: I ruminate on hitting the big 4-0.
- I have so far to go: I fall into the comparison trap and find myself lacking — big-time.
- Weight Watchers, Take 2: One Month In: I’ve returned to a tried-and-true method of losing, and am enjoying success.
And here’s the destination I eventually hope to reach: Stateless dieting. Roni Noone explains the concept beautifully.
