September 17, 1976 - March 19, 2010
Bethany was the kind of person who always reached out in support to others who were struggling. Her blog, The Great Reduction, chronicled her struggle with her weight and health for over two years before she died of cardiac arrest from peripartum cardiomyopathy. She was only 33 years young when she passed, leaving a husband and two young sons.

It can be difficult to find support for weight loss, and blogging has become a wonderful tool of expression. It can also be a great way to develop a network of friendship and support. That's what this blogroll is for: so that everyone who has a personal weight loss or healthy living blog can easily network here, find each other, comment on each other's blogs and give the support we all so desperately need.

Please browse the blogroll, and when you find a post with no or few comments, leave them an encouraging message. In this way, we can all help each other succeed.

*As of 2015, this blogroll is no longer being updated by me; blogs will no longer be added or removed. But as long as others on the blogroll are still blogging, posts will update automatically. Thank you for remembering Bethany.

~The Blogroll~

If I can stop one heart from breaking,
I shall not live in vain;
If I can ease one life the aching,
Or cool one pain,
Or help one fainting robin
Unto his nest again,
I shall not live in vain.
~Emily Dickinson
We are all like beads on a necklace...
Alone, we are small, plain, perhaps easily lost.
But strung together, we create something beautiful.
