Significantly Delayed

It has been far too long since I handed out any Significant Milestone Awards. But, just because I have been slightly remiss about keeping up with posting recipients, that doesn’t mean that I have failed to notice what has been achieved. A few of these people should have been recognized for their successes over a month ago, so I am sorry that I am just now getting around to congratulating you, but I hope that the spirit of this accolade is still relevant even though some time may have gone by since you passed your milestone.

Created with weight loss blogs in mind, but not necessarily limited to only them, The Significant Milestone Award has been designed to be handed out to those who have reached a noteworthy marker on a journey of personal betterment. It may be given to a blogger who has recently achieved a meaningful accomplishment such as a ten percent drop in body weight, a twenty-five pound loss, or reaching their final goal. Anyone who has already received this award may pass it on to another blogger when they feel that it is warranted, provided that they take the time to ensure that they are presenting it for a truly exceptional and important feat. The only stipulation that is attached to accepting The Significant Milestone Award is that the recipient must take at least one full minute to really think about what they have achieved and to feel good about themselves.

My sincerest congratulations to the following superstars:

Dawne from 365 Days To A New Me! for reaching the 50 pounds lost mark and entering ‘Onederland’!

Jack from Jack Sh*t, Gettin’ Fit for making his way down the scale to the ‘normal’ weight category and for getting to Onederland!

Sarah from Ethereal Encounter for losing 25% of her body weight and ridding herself of 75 pounds!

Sheilagh at Sixty By Sixty Was The Plan... for getting half way to her goal!

Joania at Blueprint 2010: The Journey Continues… for reaching the one year mark in her weight loss endeavors!

Merry at Sheesh for completing the C25K program!

Trish at Endurance Isn’t Only Physical for making her way down the scale to the ‘normal’ weight category!
