Favorite New Find

I recently came across a new blog when looking at someone else's blog. I only read a small piece of one entry, but was immediately hooked:

A Black Girl's Guide to Weight Loss

I know you are probably thinking, "She has finally lost her mind. This girl really thinks she's black."

I assure you that is not the case. As you will see when you peruse her "about" section, the blog is not only for black or female readers, but any reader who is interested in learning more about health and wellness. Although after reading her post, Making Wellness a Priority, I did find myself yelling "Amen, sister!"

Ahem...here is an excerpt:

"If wellness were a priority to us… if we were a priority to ourselves… we certainly wouldn’t allow external validation like “I look fine” and “My man loves me the way I am” to interfere with our internal health. (And really, a man who “loves you the way you are” can certainly love you if you wound up losing a little weight, right?) If we were a priority to ourselves, we would do what we can to ensure that we are here as long as possible… and not let discomfort or difficulty or “I’m okay today” syndrome get in the way. We can do that, right?"

Amen, sister.
