Inventing an Award
But we deserve awards more than most don't we?! We're taking on one of the hardest challenges life can throw at most people. So since there aren't any weight-loss specific blog awards I am going to share mine.
My original goal was to go through all of your blogs and officially give this award to those of you that have lost more than 25 lbs but I ran into a bit of a snag. Some of you don't post a ticker or chart of some kind on your home page and with over 50 + followers, 30 blogs in the PR list, and a slew of you who read and comment on my posts but aren't officially following I realized that to go through each and every blog might be time consuming. Then there are those of you who have your blogs set to be private or to not show up in your profile and I just don't want to miss anyone so ... this is an honor-system award. You know whether or not you've lost 25 lbs so, if you have, take this award and display it on your blog if you so desire. Feel free to pass it on like other awards but there are no rules other than whomever you pass it to has to have lost 25 lbs.or more. Be sure to respond and let me know if you're claiming the award so we can all congratulate you and if you've lost more than 50 lbs stay tuned because I'll be sharing that award with everyone as soon as I earn it!
In other news, I think I'm addicted to peanut butter! I'm out of pickles and yet I still find myself craving a spoonful of peanut butter almost daily. My mom once told me that sometimes we have cravings because our bodies are deficient in a specific nutrient that is found in the food we're craving. I'm not sure if that's true or not but I've never really been a big fan of peanut butter in the past; in fact just a month or so ago I went to use some peanut butter to make hummus and discovered that the jar we had in the cupboard had actually gone bad. Who knew peanut butter goes bad?! So this sudden new interest in it is surprising; I had thought it was just the combination of PB and pickles but now that I'm out of pickles and still craving pb that can't be it ... though it is a lot better with pickles than without I will admit.
