Living out loud in the next 14 weeks.
I rarely ever make my presence known on this site. I am usually here looking for inspiration but never saying much. I have been too ashamed. I started this journey over 4 years ago, maybe even longer. And since then, my weight has gone up and ha... Read more

I believe my pursuit of peace and tranquility is stressing me out!
Now I don't know how some people do it, they always seem so zen, so completely in control of their thoughts and emotions. While I'm here barely able to get through the day without a couple spastic episodes. And before you think I am exaggerating... Read more
Divinity stolen with permission
I wasn't sure what to call this entry today, as my mind is all over the place. So here is an attempt to bring it back to one spot and focus. I am currently working on opening a small take out restaurant with my mother and daughter in law and hub... Read more
I love the days when things seem to fall into place and one does not have to struggle just to get the day off the ground. When I wake up smiling and happily anticipating my future, when I eat well-mostly it is when I juice, when I do a bit of yo... Read more
I am(alpha and omega)
Yesterday was one of the worst days I have had emotionally in a long time. It was as if the residents of my mind took a vote and decided to eliminate all the positives, and promote all the negatives. Well those negative emotions started a wild p... Read more
Almost just doesn't count
Lately I find myself humming "Almost Doesn't Count," by R&B artist Brandy. I know what it refers to in my life, and I have been working at it, to clean it up and I was close, but life as usual got in the way. I do believe I am one of those peopl... Read more
And funny fact: sitting on your butt-working a stressful job doesn't do anything good..
I had a great trek in the last 2 and a half months, doing p90x with my husband and being home with the kids(last year this time I was in school full time and pregnant!) and now I am also working from home-by the hr----for $! This is exciting be... Read more
Exercise does a body, mind and spirit good
I don't always feel like exercising, though I must admit there are nights when I get excited by the idea that tomorrow I get to wake up and do some new workout video or something. However when my body's sore from being beaten to a pulp the day b... Read more
Real 1 eh
So weight loss has been an issue with me since I was 19, and suffice it to say I am well past that age now, but it continues to be an issue. I've heard it said that each child you have you gain 10 lbs and after my four children I can say I am f... Read more
I recommitted to my weightless journey this January 2012. I had given birth to my fourth child, a beautiful little miracle and I was walking around at my heaviest 186 lbs. I remember praying that throughout the pregnancy I wouldn't hit 200 lbs b... Read more
same old chicken...really?
I made chicken the other day, and I was not impressed as I coated the skinless pieces in herb spices and dumped them in the oven. The vinegar would give it the tang, the herbs would add spice and the rest would be up to nature and heat, blah, b... Read more
Inspiration and motivation
I spent the last 3 months of my life in various learning situations. Not only have I been in school for a formal education, but it's the informal learning that has struck me as inspired.When I was younger, I considered myself a scholar, a profes... Read more
Humility and spirituality
"The human ego is a wonderful tool, but can also leave us in a wonderful mess. It is very common for those studying spiritual philosophy to feel that their intellectual understanding is a spiritual truth, but this is a particularly dangerous tra... Read more
No More-mark my words!!!
So I have been stuck in an anger, resentment, guilt cycle for a number of months, a very diseased state of mind. My family triggers these feelings in me, continuously and I let them affect my wellbeing continuously. Never stopping to check the ... Read more
