Those three words caught my eye.
They came from thehealthywarrior on a post titled “Longing for a Transformation”. When I first peeked, a short paragraph caught my eye:
“Since I know a little something about successful weight loss, (so far I’ve lost 175 pounds during my transformation), and I have another 60 pounds to lose. I have a story to tell. It is a little personal, but it is well worth telling.”
Well worth telling it is! Her story is a lighthouse for anyone who wants a healthy body and a transformed life.
Carolyn, the author of thehealthywarrior, paid me a visit the other day. Her note suggested I check her blog. Look at the present she had waiting for me:
Thank you, Carolyn, from the deepest dip in my Soul.
After reading the fine print about acceptance, imagine my delight that I did NOT have to:
- disclose my weight or dress size.
- fess up to the amount of maple syrup I pour over my healthy breakfast.
- give excuses for the large dinner plates I use.
- proselytize over peanut butter not being a fatty food.
- convince her that bread is a vegetable.
- or, justify three, teensy teaspoons of sugar in a cup of tea.
Confession may be good for the soul, but, I know, Carolyn… it does little for the derriere.
Back to the Award. The rules say I may simply accept and:

In sharing this award, I decided to focus on healthy warriors of transformation. I pass this Beautiful Blogger baton to some of the writers who consistently transform my road home:
Clegyrboia – A land artist – in Wales – of unique talent who encourages me to look again.
Kate Shrewsday – A writer of eloquence who shares her keen and delightful family as she divulges fascinating facts about history.
Read Between the Minds – Poet and Favorite Nephew of Aunt Bea who pounds my heart’s pavement with insights.
Agrigirl – One of our planet’s best Eco-Moms who shares “green” with humour & knowledge as we glean views of delightful family scenarios.
live2write2day – A registered nurse, kidney survivor, poet – and – author of “Winter is Past” who shares her talents and techniques with a degree of grace and patience that I need to study.
Jinkspots – Wisdom and gentleness are Jacqualine’s fingerprints. Writing from Japan, Jacqualine and her family are in the midst of relocating to another area of the country – away from unhealthy plans to re-establish a nuclear plant.
(Please accept this award in whatever fashion enhances your transformation.)
