    And rightfully so. They’re the leaders in the field, people who have put themselves and their personal journeys out there for the world to see, day-in and day-out. Along the way, they have picked up hundreds of thousands of readers who go to them for motivation, for resources and even just to connect with someone who understands the struggle.

    But what about those lesser-known bloggers? The ones who aren’t on the front page of Google search results for “weight loss” or “healthy living” bloggers, but who also spend countless hours writing out their innermost feelings, sharing secrets to success and putting it all out there in hopes of achieving wellness?

    They deserve love too. That’s why we put together a list of the top 100 inspirational bloggers you probably have never heard of.

    Some of them are brand new to the world of blogging. Others have been blogging for a few years, but recently shifted their focus to healthy living or weight loss. And others are just ready to share amazing things with you to help you along in your journey. 

    Whatever your reason for needing to find a blogger who can inspire you — be it for weight loss, fitness, positive body image, healthy recipes, you name it — you’ll find that someone right here.

    Top Post: Accepting Good Enough
    Top Quote: “If I surrender, give up the fight to do it all alone, then I’ll probably remain on the outskirts of that tribe of origin permanently. Is that a tough thing to write? You bet. But here’s the gorgeous thing about life – you can make your own tribe. You can form your own crew, you can find other lovable, crazy-about-life people that will be there to support you and lift you up.”

    Author: Cely
    Type: Humor & Fitness

    About: Blogs full of heart-felt writing and deep emotions are great, but it never hurts to toss in one with a laugh-out-loud humor to it as well. Enter Running off the Reese's blogger Cely. If her blog mantra “Because no one should have to choose between their pants and chocolate” doesn’t pull you in, her creative use of gifs and humorous style of writing will. Cely was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis at the age of 18 — a diagnosis she certainly didn’t let hold her back. She runs races (usually half-marathons or less), shares her experiences, has a long list of book reviews...and talks a bit about life in general in between. And it’s awesome.
    Top Post: 10 Things Friday (a fun weekly roundup of the 10 things Cely’s into — things you might want to be into too)
    Top Quote: “I like running...when it’s not too hot, too windy, too still, too cold, too rainy, too early, or too late. I mostly enjoy races with my friends and I particularly enjoy races with my friends that serve alcohol at the finish.”

    Author: Lindsey Evanoff
    Type: Healthy Living

    About: Lindsey’s real. That’s it. Her blog, her writing style, her topics...they’re from a real person who shares her real experiences in a way that’s anything but dull. Lindsey’s posts are always chock full of photos to tell the story better, and range from fitness, to eating, to life lessons and more. Lindsey started her blog as a way to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle while remaining full and happy, but it has over the years morphed into a funny mashup of recipes, reviews, travel, pets and healthy living. (Be sure to check out her “best of” section — which includes titles of posts like “The Time I Almost Got Arrested.” You can figure it out from there).

    Author: Adam
    Type: Fitness & Healthy Living

    About: The first thing you’ll notice when you check out Adam’s blog is that he’s funny — like really, really funny (hence the name of his blog). A self-proclaimed “boring guy” and “dork,” Adam’s blog started as a way to share his thoughts on being a traveling management consultant to a place for sharing running, humor, life and more — probably one of the most interesting changes we’ve run across. Adam’s been battling some knee problems off-and-on, but still makes it a priority to live healthy, exercise (like hiking) and share it all in his traditional good-humored, naturally-engaging way.

    Author: Jackie
    Type: Weight Loss

    About: Jackie, a 26-year-old English professor, is not exactly new to blogging. She’s been doing it since 2013. But recently, she moved her posts from Tumblr to their own website — and with an 80-pound weight loss, why not? Jackie’s the kind of writer who draws you in not just with her words, but with her use of photos and links, too. She’s snarky and quick-witted, and her posts are a blast to read. Factor in the continuing journey to shed pounds and reach her goal weight of 132, and the blog is really something special.

    8. JadeIsabelle

    Author: Jade
    Type: Weight Loss, Healthy Living, Beauty/Fashion

    About: Jade’s 6+ years of experience blogging means, at first glance, we would have passed right over her for this list. But it’s her recent debut into weight loss and healthy living blogging that caught our eye. Jade lives in Singapore, and just looking at Jade’s photos, it’s hard to imagine her as ever being overweight. But in 2012, she was unhappy with the way she looked, a feeling she’d had her whole life. Then the thought occurred to her that she had the power to change it. A total lifestyle overhaul and 44 pounds later, and Jade’s story is a success we can all admire.

    Author: Misty
    Type: Weight Loss & Positive Body Image

    About: Misty’s more than just a “fat girl,” as she puts it. So much more. Misty started blogging about her weight loss about four years ago after she experienced a pulmonary edema and several pulmonary embolisms following the birth of her fourth daughter — all caused by excessive fluids in her body and all nearly killing her. She also found out she has a blood disorder called Factor V Leiden, something she was born with. Since starting her original blog “I Am Not Just a Fat Girl,” Misty’s weight loss journey has had ups and downs, but ultimately she accepted her body and now blogs to inspire others who are looking to lose weight, too.

    Megsfitness.wordpress.com
    Author: Megan
    Type: Weight Loss & Lifestyle

    About: Meg’s blog is a primary example of the two sides of online blogging: the challenges of knowing what to share (and how much of it to share), mixed with the benefits (the inspiration and encouragement bloggers get from their readers). Meg used to blog in private, but eventually morphed into a public blogger, where she shares not just her progress losing weight, but also recipes she’s tried, fitness that worked (and didn’t work) for her, stories, rants and so much more.

    Author: Alexis
    Type: Weight Loss

    About: The thing that’s most appealing about Alexis’ blog is its tagline: “One girl’s adventure in moderation.” It’s a testament to Alexis’s general approach to life — she knows she won’t succeed unless she balances weight loss and being healthy with living life to its fullest.

    Author: Brian
    Type: Weight Loss, Healthy Cooking

    About: Brian’s struggles with weight are some we can all relate to — the need to get healthy, fit, you name it. But what makes his blog particularly interesting is that his studio apartment doesn’t have a kitchen. That forces Brian to get creative, and all he has to work with is a mini-refrigerator and a Big Boss Rapid Oven. His blog is a way to stay accountable and share recipes that are about as creative as you can get.

    Ruzelestrauss.com
    Author: Ruzele
    Type: Weight Loss

    About: Ruzele’s had weight issues her whole life, but it wasn’t until after her mother passed away in 2011 that the pounds really started to pile on. She ballooned up to 335 pounds and had a rock-bottom moment that led her to where she is today: 50 pounds lighter and on a mission to lose 130 more. Ruzele’s blog posts are short and sweet, but always delightful and full of musings, emotions, progress reports and the occasional vlog (which work oh-so-perfectly). Ruzele’s one to follow if you’re looking for someone who’s accountable and gets to the point, but still leaves you rooting her on day-in and day-out.

    23. Frantic at Forty

    Franticatforty.wordpress.com
    Author: Unknown
    Type: Weight Loss

    About: Normally, we’d skip right on over a blog that doesn’t identify the author’s name, but the woman authoring “Frantic at Forty” gave us pause. Why? Because her story is one that so many can relate to — a woman about to enter midlife trying to make sense of things and lose weight. The author started the blog just before she turned 40 as a way to stay accountable while she started out to give herself the only gift she wanted — thin. She’s lost plenty of weight, and, even more importantly, found some happiness in the process. We just hope that turning 40 doesn’t mean an end to her blogging.

    24. Mama Ames Gets Healthy

    Author: Amy
    Type: Weight Loss

    About: Amy started her weight loss journey after she ran the Disney Princess Half Marathon at her heaviest weight ever — and realized it was time to make a change. Fast forward a couple years, she's lost 65 pounds, motivated especially by her father, who she calls her “biggest cheerleader.” Then her father passed away, and things went downhill a bit. Amy gained 40 pounds back and in 2014 started a weight loss blog to embark on the ultimate quest: signing up for races (her most recent was the Star Wars Half Marathon) and letting readers know that she feels their pain — and, most importantly, that they can get through it and make the changes and run races, just like she is.

Then she went back up again...to 181. 2013 rolls around, and enter: her blog. Emily set out to lose the weight for good.

    26. Loretta’s Journey

    Lorettasjourney.blogspot.com
    Author: Loretta
    Type: Weight Loss


    About: Loretta’s certainly no stranger to blogging — she been sharing her weight loss journey since 2009. But the thing that caught our eye most about Loretta’s blog is that unlike most long-time healthy living/weight loss bloggers, her website’s not chock full of product reviews and recommendations, links to goods, etc. It’s very authentic, as is Loretta. Loretta started at 460 pounds. Now, she hovers around 199. And she does it “one good choice at a time.” Her style of writing is engaging and real — the kind of blog that you read and finish thinking, I really know this woman in a deep way. Bravo.

    About: Bonnie’s been sharing her life — and family of 7 — with readers for years. But the reason she found her way onto our list is because of what she started Jan. 2 — a full-on commitment to cut out the junk food, soda and other unhealthy habits and lose weight. More than three months later, and she’s more than succeeded. Her daily struggle is the kind of thing anyone who’s stopped and started and stopped and then started again can attest to. But what really makes it special is that this time, she not stopping.

    Type: Fitness & Weight Loss

    About: The lessons people learn when they start losing weight are important and meaningful. But it can be tough to articulate them in a way that helps other people with their own weight loss goals. That’s far from the case when it comes to Tim. About 2 years ago, Tim tipped the scales at 295 pounds. Today, he weighs in at about 220 —75 pounds lighter and a whole lot more fit. And that’s what he’s dedicated his blog to, sharing fitness tips and lessons he learned to help others achieve their goals too.

    About: No, Amanda’s blog title is not referring to those delicious chocolate treats— or dancing— or a dog after he gets in from the rain. “Shakes” is Amanda’s long-time nickname and, it just so happens, it also turned into the perfect way to describe her blog. Amanda is an outspoken advocate of having a positive body image and maintaining a common sense healthy lifestyle. She also posts her very real struggle with depression and overcoming her own demons when it comes to sense-of-self. It’s that authenticity that makes for a compelling read that will leave you wanting to check back in every single day. Plus, her top post features a visually stunning photo array of what a typical weekday looks for her.

But when you look at her blog, it’s easy to see why we added her here — she’s got the same caliber as the big guns, and deserves even more recognition than she’s already had. Julie decided some time back that she was going to make better decisions when it came to her health, but progress with weight loss, as she puts it, has been “S-L-O-W.” Determined and just happier with the way she feels, Julie carried on until she reached her goal weight. Today, she hovers between 150 and 170 pounds, blogging about what she eats, what inspires her and how she hopes to inspire others, too.

Trapped in her own mind and truly miserable, Laura one day realized that the key to overcoming her addictions was to make deliberate choices for every single thing she did — a mindset that taught her just how valuable she is. Now, she’s an extraordinarily strong-willed champion of women’s health who shares her knowledge and expertise with others. A true inspiration on so many levels.

To be at a healthy weight, his doctor said he needed to weigh 177 pounds, 168 pounds less than the weight he was at. In essence, Bobby realized he was essentially carrying around another person. The moment was the catalyst he needed to change. Rather than set any unrealistic expectations, Bobby decided to set the small, attainable goal of losing 2 pounds a week. So began his blog. And, guess what? It worked. Two years later, Bobby weighs in at 214 pounds (he looks great, by the way), and continues to take those small baby steps that are helping him achieve a healthy body. Bravo.

    Author: Cary
    Type: Weight Loss

    About: Cary has a big personality, a personality that comes through every single post she writes. She’s trying to lose 100 pounds, and she has the same kinds of ups and downs we all do when we’re losing weight, one of the many things that makes her so appealing. Her blog is her “me-place” to cry, moan and spill painful thoughts. But it’s also a place where she shares her triumphs, happy moments and steps to uncover (little by little) herself.
    Top Post: Accountability, Exercise Finally and My Fab Lunch
    Top Quote: "Success breeds success. I can’t believe how hard it is and how much mental work it takes to get myself back on track after even one meal off my diet. The more I see this, how quick my MOJO can be smashed to freaking hell the more awareness I have.
    These discoveries have helped me tough it out so far.. I know I am not perfect but I can and will get BETTER.

    Type: Fitness, Weight Loss, Healthy Living

    About: Gina has the kind of success story that really touches a nerve. She started out at 298 pounds and went on to lose 168 of those pounds in 25 months. As someone who always struggled with her weight and achieved such a huge thing, she has an especially good grasp on how to help other people who have 100 or more pounds to lose achieve their goals. Her blog is a place she uses to motivate, inspire, energize and connect with others. And that’s exactly what it is.

    : Going to the Gym with a Plan

    Top Quote: “We can do this if we take a moment and step out of the shadow of our fear and face whatever obstacles are in our way. Let us turn that fear and doubt into what we all really want and that is to feel happy, healthy and on the path to feeling alive again.
     

    Methodology:

    To create this list, Diet-to-Go combed through the common blogging websites: wordpress.com; blogger.com; wix.com; weebly.com; and blog.com using key search terms that included “healthy living;” “weight loss;” “fitness;” and “healthy cooking/recipes.” 

    Diet-to-Go further refined its search to include only bloggers who had shared a post within the last 90 days.

    Bloggers were then selected based on the following criteria:

    • Category, ensuring blog was primarily focused on healthy living; weight loss; fitness; healthy eating/cooking; positive body image.
    • Quality of posts, including use of photos and writing style.
    • Ability to inspire/motivate.
    • Interesting information in “About” section.


    Diet-to-Go determined the “Top Post” based on two criteria:

    • Pages with the highest number of visits besides the home/main pages of website.
    • Pages that related to weight loss & healthy living.


    And for the “Top Quote,” we just picked the words that inspired us, and hope it will do the same for you.
