About Fogdog's Weight Loss


Through failure we learn to succeed! This is a blog about fighting back. It's about picking yourself up off the floor, dusting yourself off, and getting right back in there. It's about holding yourself accountable, having the right mindset, and learning to live a healthy lifestyle.

I have failed more times than I can count. I've reached a point in my life where I've decided that giving up is no longer an option. I've decided to devote 360 days toward my health and well being in the hopes that I can turn my life around.

Join me as I take the journey and try to stay on the path. Learn from me through my successes and failures, and help me learn from you. As one blog I am weak, but as a community we are very strong. Let's Succeed Together!

Creative Writer Award

Thank you to Weezel at "What Scares You" for presenting me with this prestigious blog award. In a few moments, I will be bestowing the honor on a few of you per the rules below.

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who gave this to you.
2. Copy the logo and place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you.
4. Tell up to six outrageous lies about yourself, and at least one outrageous truth.
5. Nominate seven "Creative Writers" who might have fun coming up with outrageous lies.
6. Post links to the seven blogs you nominate.
7. Leave a comment on each of the blogs letting them know you nominated them.

The Soul of Creative Writing 

Here are my outrageous lies (and 1 truth):

  1. I've discovered a hidden code in the South Beach Diet book.  When deciphered it gives you a kickin' recipe for a lentil soup
  2. I once tried out to play for the Boston Bruins.  They wanted me to play but I refused because #77 was already taken
  3. I also sent in an audition for "The Biggest Loser" They rejected me because they said I was too fat
  4. My mom is head chef at a famous 5-star restaurant
  5. I once ate an entire Thanksgiving turkey all by myself (and then had dessert)
  6. I am in the movie "Graveyard Shift".  The film was made at the factory I worked at and the camera caught me while I was stuffing my face and watching the action
  7. I've used a Thighmaster, Buns of Steel Videos, and I've "Sweated to the Oldies"
Feel free to guess which one is true.

I nominate the following blogs for this award.
  1. The Daily Diary of a Winning Loser
  2. My 365-Day Weight Loss Journey
  3. Fat Daddy Rants
  4. Eat To Live in 2010
  5. The Fat Chick's Dating Manifesto (I'm not female or single, but I like the style)
  6. Journeying to Lose 200 Pounds... The Triumph of Perseverance
  7. 100 Pounds Less
I love the style of each one of these blogs and they are filled with inspiration as well as sound diet tips.  Thanks for sharing!

The Writing Diet: Write Yourself Right-Size


  1. Awww... thanks so much for this award. It really means a lot to me, and I appreciate it so much! I'll blog about it very soon. :)

    And... my guess is that #7 is true.

  2. You deserve it! No, #7 is not true. I have actually sweated to the oldies, but I've never used buns of steel or a thighmaster.

  3. Thank you for this award. :-)

    My guess is that number 6 is true.

  4. thanks for the award. much appreciated. i will post on it within the next few days.


  5. My guess is #5. Did Mom use you to test all her yummy delights?


  6. No, not #5. But my mom is a great cook and yes she did feed me quite well as a kid.

    Esther got it right.

  7. LOL You crack me up! Thanks so much for all your support. The dating blog isn't my main blog-- my weight-loss blog is http://www.buckthirteen.blogspot.com. Buck thirteen symbolizes my journey to lose 113 pounds!!!!!
