Here are some of the blogs I've found recently to inspire myself, to show that others have been on this path and have sustainable success. I'd really love to find some more blogs that have inspiring weight loss success stories from those who have also been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes.


Zen Habits (Not a fitness blog per-se, but general topics for improving one's habits. Several topics regarding fitness and way of eating. The Beginner's Guide provides links to the most popular topics. )

Cool Running (Their "The Couch-to-5K Running Plan," while I don't follow it to the letter, helped inspire me to train for our local 5K this fall.)

Weight Loss:

Refuse to Regain (a site for maintenance...why not look ahead?)

Finding Radiance (a gal named Lori who lost 100 lbs)

Lynn's Weigh (Read after I saw an article about her on; she lost 168 lbs!)

Roni's Weigh (Her height identical to mine, and our goals are similar, but her highest weight is what I was after my second pregnancy and wish I had at least maintained!)

And the journey begins... (Just found this one today, 8/15/08! Success story-in-progress of " lose 80 pounds", who at last post had lost over 60 pounds!)

"A Woman's Right to Lose | Lesley's Weigh to Healthy Living" (Another inspiring success story, plus great info and tips!)

(*new*, 8/21/08) "Diet Coke And Zingers" (Gotta love a title like that! And whatever you do, don't read this while drinking your Diet Coke, unless you LIKE serious nasal pain.)


Blood Sugar 101 (A site I found to be tremendously useful when I first found out that I had Type 2 diabetes) article, "Newly Diagnosed"

(*new*, 8/21/08) "Type 2 Diabetes - A Personal Journey" (The "Painless Pricks" entry alone is worth reading for less blood glucose testing angst. And there I was thinking, "No pain, no wasted test strip." Silly me!)
