First thing to acquire...
So, I came across these adorable bracelets! If you've heard of Alex & Ani, they remind me of the meaning/messages behind it. They are probably the next craze. Maybe Alex & Ani is just local...I'm not even sure. After all, they originated in Pro... Read more

Writing or rewriting your story? You're the author. Create your own happiness!
A sparkfriend of mine suggested that I start blogging again. I've had the urge, but it has seemed as though my mind has been leaning toward negativity and toward feeling down on myself. I didn't want to whine or complain. I didn't want to rai... Read more

Back in the saddle... WEEK 1 GOALS
Yes I'm hoppin' on and riding this one out, as far as the road may lead. I don't just want to...I HAVE TO! This is just not a healthy lifestyle. I can't get out of my own way and god forbid someone gets in the way of me! I'm so miserable and... Read more
From 75 pounds lost to 26...
Ok, I give in...I own it. Yes, that's right. I've gained back almost 50 lbs of the 75lbs that I lost last year. I could make excuses, but the fact is... there is not one excuse for it. It's simple. I made bad food choices, lacked the exerci... Read more
The scale tipped... 20 lbs. ...
...the opposite way! Yes, you read it correctly.
I've stopped putting myself first, mindlessly ate sh*t I shouldn't have, stayed off the scale, stopped tracking, ate on the go, ran around to a crazy busy schedule, and this is where it's ... Read more
3 months lost...
It's been 3 months, since my last post. I've made some accomplishments and have allowed some to slip through the cracks. I was promoted at work fairly quickly, due to my dedication and hard work. I had lost 70+ lbs. when I began working, only... Read more
Holding on to my pants and walking with pride!
I was in desperate need of some new clothes! I walked across campus today, holding onto my jeans, for they were slipping down (not a good idea to wear silky underwear either...haha). It was time to treat myself and let go of the last pair of m... Read more

I NEED a little spark to make a fire or something! ...haha I'm at my mom's for dinner, ... Read more
70 lbs. lost! (Before & After)
I've officially lost 70 lbs.!!! The number itself still sounds crazy to me. I never thought I would take this much weight off, let alone in 7 months time! What doesn't sit well with me, is that I still sometimes look in the mirror and see mys... Read more
Sickness, no taste buds, gastric bypass, and some words of wisdom. It must be 2am...haha
I'm sick. Sniffles, runny nose, stuffy nose, slight cough and heavy chest at times...ugh!
I wasn't particularly hungry today, but I made sure I ate something for each meal time. The cereal I ate this morning, I could taste. Although, c... Read more
