Where are the black girl weight loss blogs?

I read a lot of weight loss blogs and one day it hit me. Pretty much everyone I read continously is white. It's not a problem per se but it's interesting. As a black girl, I'm built a little different from the average white girl. It would be nice to see a before and after of someone like me. Don't get me wrong, I'm inspired by all the other blogs I read (Tyler has one of my favorite blogs and he's a guy!), it's just something that struck me.

I can't say I know why (and if there's a blog I'm missing, let me know) but hopefully I'll change that. As a community, I think we tend to be more judgmental and being open is not the norm.

Who knows, I might start a trend.


  1. is an amazing site..and Ericka will answer any questions that you may have!

  2. thanks! that's actually an awesome site with tons of information!

  3. Hmmm... If only I could persuade my GF Lisa to start blogging! She lost 40 lbs last year & I'm tremendously proud of her (too bad none of that shrinkage has rubbed off on me ;-)
