That's awesome that you're looking for wellness vs. dieting blogs! I highly recommend checking out a few blogs written by dietitians via the 'Nutrition Blog Network'. My blog is a dieting free zone. I only do wellness and sustainable healthy habits! (http://www.carlenesfigments.wordpress.com).

I know exactly what you're looking for. I was doing the exact same thing where I was looking more for being healthy (wellness) then into dieting, rather. I got into Dr. Pompa, and his natural way of living and eating. His exercise is even Anti-Aging! But the way he is teaching us to eat makes it to where we actually don't even have to lose work out to lose weight. But where losing weight really starts from is healing the cell first, and Dr. Pompa explains all that :) http://cellularhealingdiet.com/

I agree with Carlene, that's awesome!  MindBodyGreen.com is a wonderful resource for this with several contributing writers.  I have just started blogging and am still trying to make it a disciplined practice, but you can read some of my posts here: http://living3sixty.com/.  Or few older posts here: http://sarahbalmer.blogspot.com/.

I write a blog with some fitness, food, and life tips with the emphasis on finding what works best for you. I don't believe in cookie cutter diets or weight loss plans and given my own health ups and downs, I value over all health more than being a certain weight. You can check my blog out at www.mintythin.com

I also really enjoy the magazine Experience L!fe  http://experiencelife.com/  It is a very well-balanced magazine with something for everyone.

The Go Red for Women's American Heart Association site has a lot of heart healthy tips. Unlike blogs, it will be approved by a panel of doctors before being published. Check it out at http://www.goredforwomen.org/home/live-healthy/.

My favorite Facebook site is Pure Vibrant Living. Jackie Knechtel posts daily recipes and wellness tips on her Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/PureVibrantLiving?ref=stream&hc_location=stream

I really enjoy mamalaughlin.com and skinnymeg @ missmadisonscharmedlife.com They are both ladies who have lost over 100 pounds and fight everyday to keep it off. They talk about real life struggles and have great advice.

I'm personally a huge fan of bloglaties, the videos are quick, fun, effective, and free. She also has a blog where she posts everything including a monthly workout calendar. There is some focus on dieting but it's more working clean eating into your everyday routine rather than actual diets.
