Calling all weight loss bloggers!!! When I started this blog a couple of years ago I came across the Biggest Loser Blog Edition (BLBE), a weight loss competition among weight loss bloggers themed around the popular NBC show, the Biggest Loser.
Sadly, I didn’t make it through the full 16 weigh ins. I did however meet (virtually) a lot of great people, several had already lost significant amounts of weight, while others were still looking to get started. Several of the links I had to their blogs are dead, the sites are gone, the bloggers off the grid.
I know AngieAllTheWay (as far as I know, the creator of the BLBE) is still going strong since her blog shows that she recently had a child and is thinking of starting back on Weight Watchers with their new ProPoint system. But what about Just Jen, HotchPotchery, or A Cake for a Wife?
I don’t remember if I met Ronie through BLBE or not, but she is still blogging away at Ronie’s Weigh – and even has a popular vlog. It appears that she has also started a weight loss blogging community at Blog to Lose – with over 4000 members currently – WOW!
According to the last post on BLBE (May 14, 2009):
This was a long challenge and it was very hard to keep up with, so if and when there is another one, it won’t be until after a much needed break
This is the part where I usually boo and hiss, but I understand how difficult it can be to keep ‘real life’ going and blog – so adding a weight loss blogging competition to the mix must have been difficult. If BLBE never rises again, I’m still grateful to Angie for hosting it and all the people I met along the way that encouraged me as I got started on this crazy IQA ride!
If you are a weight loss blogger and happened by – even if you have never been a part of the BLBE – I would love to hear from you! Leave me a comment or send me an email!
