The Gaggies

side_oscarSo I’m part of these strange bunch of GAG women (and I think some dudes too).  We get points for random challenges and probably other stuff too that I don’t know about because I mainly need this challenge to keep me on track (or remind myself when I’ve fallen off track).  Well, sometimes I have time to do some of the challenges and other times I don’t.  But, I read the blog every time there’s a new post and if I can I’ll post something and participate in the challenges.  If not I’ve found some wonderfully supportive women that tell me it’s OK when my week sucked and cheer with me when my week rocked.

Well, this week we have The Gaggies challenge.  We get to nominate someone for The Gaggie Award.  So, I’ve been thinking about this award all week and trying to determine who I wanted to nominate.  See, there really are some awesome people in this challenge.  But, I finally decided to go with the one person that has really truly affected my weight loss journey in the most amazing way these past few months.

So, for the Humor Award, my nomination goes to a wonderfully funny blogger named Fat Ass.  Why?  Well, seriously, anyone who can write a post about sharting and make me laugh hysterically until there are tears in my eyes.  Deserves a Humor Award.

But, wait, there’s more.  For the Inspirational Posting Award, my nomination goes to my dear friend Fat Ass.  Why?  Because, anyone who can talk about hell and make you relate or admit she just winging it and doing it real and make you believe that you can too deserves an Inspirational Posting Award.  Seriously, Fat Ass is inspirational (although she’ll deny it and tell me I’m full of crap for saying this).  But, that’s what makes her inspirational.  She tells it like it is.  She says my week SUCKED then does something about it.  She doesn’t lie or sugarcoat the truth.  She tells it like it is and goes with it.

But, I can’t leave well enough alone, so I have an entry for the Encouragement of Others Award.  It may come as a huge shock, but I’m nominating Fat Ass.  And, if I had to choose only one award to give, this would be it.  Because in all honestly, Fat Ass, has been one of my biggest encourages for a while now.  (I do have others — thank you Candy.)  But right now I’m giving this award nomination to Fat Ass.  Let me tell you why.

This post alone was reason enough to make me nominate nominate her.  I was going through my own private hell and she listened and not only encouraged me herself but asked other to.  And they did.

But, that’s not it.  It never fails, good or bad I know I’ll get a comment from her.  She knows what I’m feeling.  She relates. She encourages.  She tells me to get my head out of my behind and get back on track.  Or, she tells me it’ll all be OK.  Somehow, she knows exactly what to say when and says it.  She’ll email, message, or comment but everytime I know whatever she says will make a difference.

Plus we’re blackberry buddies so I know she’s just awesome.

If we lived closer (there’s this dang massive country between us) I know that we’d be great IRL friends. I know we’d be beach walking buddies.  And we’d kick each other’s behinds and keep each other on track.  Instead, we’ll continue being comment/email/bb messenger buddies and we’ll encourage each other and kick each other’s behind.

I can only hope I give just a tiny bit of the encouragement she gives to me.

If you have a chance, stop by Did I Just Eat That Out Loud? and tell Fat Ass (Sue) how awesome she is.  But, don’t do it because I said so…do it because you won’t regret it and she really is THAT awesome.

And for the record, no, I’m not trying to butter up or kiss up or suck up.  I’m just trying to say


Sue for sharing your journey from Fatass to Fabulous with another Chick trying to lose the title Fat.

    I couldn’t agree more! Sue is the BEST. I am a new blogger and I can count on her for an inspiring comment on anything I write, and I love going to her blog for a face slap of reality, or a laugh, or a great perspective when I need it. And anyone who speaks of sharting so frankly = awesome.

    I was directed here through Sue’s blog. And I just wanted to say how awesome I think your blog is and how incredibly wonderful you are for posting this. She is pretty much amazing, as I’m sure you are, too.
