Thinking Thin



Today is the first of the Thinking Thin Blog Hops.  I hope we have some good participation today because I hope to find some new blogs to read.  I know I really enjoyed the last one of these that I participated in.  Basically there are very few things you have to do to hop, grab the button in the sidebar and post it somewhere in your post.  Then linky up at the bottom of this post so others can find you.  I hope you will follow my blog as well but of course you don't have to follow me to play along.

I am not really limiting it to any topic in particular.  I hope to find blogs about weight loss, diet, exercise, running, etc....

Here's the button for you to pick up.





Not since today is the first day I have a topic for us to post about.  The topic today is "Why did you start blogging?"

I started my blog about 3 years ago because I entered a weight loss contest at the local gym.  My sisters were big fans of the blog world so I thought it would be nice to have an outlet to talk about my experiences.  I never expected anyone to read it and didn't really tell many people about it in the beginning.  Now I have been lassoed into the blog world and I just cant get enough, of my own and I am always looking for others.  I love to share my experiences, good and bad, ups and downs, and I love knowing that others are going through the same things.

Let me know how you got started.

I used to write about each marathon I ran so that I'd remember it. I'd send my little narrative to a few interested friends and family. Eventually, I discovered some blogs I loved to read so...I started my own. It has evolved quite a bit over the few years since I started it, however, and my scope has expanded to overall fitness, health, running, different workouts and all the adventures that go along with it. I still include the marathon stories too. ;)

Oh - and I love your new title/banner thing! How did you do that?

Thanks, I have been wanting to do a new banner for a while and this was on Pisaca (I think) with google. It makes a collage and you just have to edit it.
