Special thanks to LDSwims of A Journey to Embrace fame for giving me the Sunshine Blogger award. While I do think it was something of a pity vote seeing as I was left out of the Beautiful Blogger Award (WHATEVER), I'll take it! I really like what the Sunshine Award is all about...positivity and providing support and inspiration to fellow blogsters. While I'm not sure I'm as positive as I should be, you can bet I'm supportive as hell of all of you and what you're trying to accomplish. With that in mind...the rules as you all know them by now...
1. Post the logo on your blog.
2. Pass the award on to 12 fellow bloggers.
3. Link the nominees
4. Let nominees know they have won this award by commenting on their blog.
5. Share the love and link to the person you received this award from.
I know some of these are going to repeat but what can I say? I'm saying you're inspirational for a reason and if you get nominated by 8 different people, you should try to not be so witty and charismatic...and the winners are...in no particular order...
Joey at Volume Control - She's just too funny!
Catherine at Chronicles from Bandland - Talk about inspirational! She's done absolutely amazing with her band but also shares all her exciting NYC tales.
at Fat Bastard Banded - He's still in preband land but you gotta admire anyone who would take on the pre-op liquid diet without being told too in hopes of early surgery date. He also cracks me up.
Sarah at Losing Weight and Gaining Tons - Even on her grouchy days (see today's post), she's optimistic and peppy. How does she do it?
Carla at Loving Lucy Lapband - She was one of the first to comment on my blog and she always has something supportive to say.
Katie at Me vs Myself - She's overcome a good bit of personal stuff to get where she is which always puts things in perspective for me.
Robin at My Journey into a New World - She is doing fantastic with her new band! She's not shy about her life or asking questions and many of them are the same questions I have.
No list is complete without Amy of Once Upon a Time... - Never fails to make me smile.
Cara of The Dash - One of my very first followers and even though she's SUPER busy right now, she still follows, reads and comments and you couldn't ask for anyone more supportive.
Lynda of The Band Saga - Another super supportive, always has something to contribute.
Thinspiration at The New Me - While she's had more obstacles than most...including broken legs, fingers, infertility...you name it...it doesn't seem to get her too down...she even can't wait to EXERCISE!
Tully at You Would Be Pretty If... - She won my heart when she quit her job. Taking 3 months off to travel the world! Can't beat that...
So there they are...Please go by and pay them a visit if you don't follow them already. Truly great group of people. Thanks again LD!
