I stopped caring

I stopped caring

Something happened after my last post. She kicked and I saw my belly move. Suddenly, everything made sense. I’m growing a fucking baby inside of me. What is WRONG with me? Why am I being so neurotic??? So, I’m done caring about what everyone else thinks. I get 40 weeks (give or take) to grow … Continue reading

Every Single Damn Day

Every Single Damn Day

A couple of weeks ago Kevin and I went to Barnes and Noble and I found myself in tears. Now, typically we go to B&N with a researched list of what books to buy. We both really enjoy reading. We decided to really be frisky and go free ballin. We’re livin the thug life, what can … Continue reading

It’s a Woman’s Job

It’s a Woman’s Job

We, as women, are each other’s biggest critics. We are constantly competing with other women and finding ways to tear them down. We say the woman eating the salad knows she needs to eat a cheeseburger and the woman eating the cheeseburger knows she needs to eat a salad.  The stay at home mom is … Continue reading

Healthy Bucket List

Healthy Bucket List

I love Authentically Emmie’s Blog and her recent Bucket List post was no exception. It got me really thinking though. Here are hers: 1. Head up in a crowd I walk pretty confidently and typically have my head up. Though, I won’t lie. Some outfits give me more confidence than others. I’m working on always showing that I’m … Continue reading

Taking Control Back

Taking Control Back

I’ve never understood how someone can weigh in just once a week. Scales are meant to weigh yourself with multiple times. Multiple times a day. Hi, my name is Danielle and I’m a scale addict. My obsession with the scale has impacted me negatively in the following ways: it dictates my mood for the day. A huge loss … Continue reading

MY Fatkini

MY Fatkini

I was nervous, I won’t lie. For so long our society has taught women that big is not beautiful. Our society has told women that if you’re heavy you need to cover up, get surgery, lose weight, stop being you. Fat skin is not desired skin. It doesn’t matter how far you’ve come, how much … Continue reading

Advice and Life Lessons

Advice and Life Lessons

  A younger friend of mine (mid 20s) recently asked if I could meet up with her to offer some advice. “Advice?” I thought, “What kind of advice can I offer someone? I’m only…30.” I haven’t met up with her yet, but it has been on my mind non stop. I’ve been racking my brain as … Continue reading

Love The Skin You’re In

Love The Skin You’re In

Do you love the skin you’re in? It’s such a fine line to love the skin you’re in while trying to change the skin you’re in. I’m working hard on the positive self talk. It’s so easy to get down on yourself when you’re trying to lose weight and the scale isn’t cooperating. Hell, I’m … Continue reading

What The Scale Won’t Tell You

What The Scale Won’t Tell You

The scale won’t tell you that I went grocery shopping on Friday to set myself up for success. The scale won’t tell you that I came home from a long day of work on Friday and went for a run and was able to run up one of the hills that always leaves me panting … Continue reading

I’m trying

I’m trying

I’m trying. God knows I’m trying. I’m trying to find the balance between sanity and insanity; something I most often struggle with. Either I weigh in compulsively or not at all. I haven’t stepped foot onto the scale since my Post Op appointment. Kevin says he is glad I’m not torturing myself, but I can’t … Continue reading
