A cord of three strands is not quickly broken. Ecclesiastes 4:12b
This is my heart behind Weight Loss Wednesday.
As I have talked about my weight loss battle, other friends have bravely stepped forward and said, "I struggle too". It's time for us to quit struggling alone and in silence.
The purpose of Weight Loss Wednesday is to create a community of three strands where we share encouragement and provide accountability for one another.
Being honest about our own shortcomings gives others the opportunity to encourage us. Hearing their stories of success gives us hope. Knowing others are struggling with us gives us the accountability to keep going.
So what will it look like?
It will look like you.
Write a post on your blog linking back to Weight Loss Wednesday. Share what you are comfortable sharing. It could be…
Your weekly loss/gain
What worked or didn't work for you that week
What God is teaching you in the journey
The goal is to just be yourself…the beautiful snowflake that you are.
I will hopefully have Wednesday's post up Tuesday night by 10:00 EST with a linky tool. Below is the cute button that the amazing Honey designed for me. But you don't have to use the button, just make sure to link back to the corresponding week's post.
If you don't have a blog, you can still participate. You can either participate in the comments or on the Confessions of a Snowflake Facebook Page where tips and encouragement will be shared throughout the day.
If you are a Twitter user, I have created a new hashtag for Weight Loss Wednesday…#wlwed. This way we can connect throughout the week and encourage each other in our little victories and defeats.
And don't forget to visit some of the other bloggers linked up that day. Your comments can be that extra help they need to keep trying. Remember it's all about being a community of 3 strands.
Ok, so did I cover everything? Do you have any other questions?
Oh one more thing…please know that I reserve the right to delete any link that does not conform to the spirit of Weight Loss Wednesday.
I'm sure i missed something. Be patient with me, this is the first time I have hosted a meme. But I am very excited about it. I hope you are too!
