Marie Antoinette Award

I am pleased to announce that I received the Marie Antoinette Award. This award is given to "real people, real blogs" and I received the award thanks to Lynne http://lynne-is-on-a-mission.blogspot.com/ who I met when she happened to show up one day and left a comment. Since that moment we have become a support line for each other. The other nomination came from Estela http://lasttime-atbat.blogspot.com/ who I met through Lynne. Estela found my blog through Lynne's webpage. Since then we have been supportive in each others weight loss journey.

I keep this blog as a piece of mind in my weight loss journey. On Weight Watchers I have met a lot of women, and very few men. I think it is important for men to have a view on their weight loss journey, and what is going through our minds in regards to life. The rules are listed below to nominate another blogger:

The Rules:
1. Please put the logo in your blog
2. Place a link from the person, from whom you received the award
3. Nominate at least 7 or more
4. Put the links of those on your blog
5. Leave a message on their blog to let them know

My nominations are

Kerrin from Girl On A Mission http://thisgirlonamission.blogspot.com/ . I met Kerrin, when she showed up on my webpage. She lives in MD, and is roughly my age. I have learned a few things from Kerrin such as planning my menu's ahead of time, to save time and to save money. Something I never use to do. She is a big Supporter! Thank you Kerrin, you deserve this award!

Pamela from Uncovering Pamela http://www.uncoveringpamela.com/ . I met Pamela once again when she showed up on my webpage. I really feel a connection to her since she has gone from being in the 300's to now being in 180's. This is something that I'm looking to do myself.

Havie from My Name Is Havalah http://havie23.blogspot.com/ is a young lady who is lives in New Zealand. Once again she found my blog through Weight Watchers. It is nice that I can inspire across the sea, and I like encouraging her as she is a nice young lady!

Aline from A Journey in New Zealand http://liloufrenchie.blogspot.com/ is another young lady who is living in New Zealand but I think she is originally from Switzerland. Another great person to get another view from.

Lynne from I'm On A Mission http://lynne-is-on-a-mission.blogspot.com/ . She has been a big supporter, and I really appreciate her always checking up on me.

Estela from Last Time At Bat http://lasttime-atbat.blogspot.com/ . Estela has been another big supporter, as she fights through her own weight loss.

Carlos from You're Gonna Need A Bigger Boat http://carlosthelarger.blogspot.com/ is someone who I met through Kerrin, and he writes some funny entries, and is another guy's view!

I want to congratulate each person for being there for me. You all do a great job on your blogs, and I ask that you keep up the great work!
