Fear

Fear

I’m writing this over the course of a few days, maybe a week, maybe two weeks (it’s been two weeks now). I’m not sure yet. Fear is holding me back. Fear is immobilizing.  Fear is temporary; regret is permanent. I found spin 4 years ago. Ok. Correction. I tried a spin bike 4 years and … Continue reading

What I didn’t say.

What I didn’t say.

I haven’t had a scale in exactly 6 weeks. My weigh in will be the moment of truth when I see if I can successfully do this without the obsession of my scale. Already, in my head, I’ve been doing the math on what numbers would be acceptable to see. What numbers would upset me. What … 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

The Space Between Us

The Space Between Us

 I weighed 325lbs and never once thought I was unattractive. In fact, I thought I was hot. Smoking hot. Curvy, thick, and juicy. If you tried to tell me otherwise I would have laughed in your face.  My confidence attracted people. I had boyfriends and heart breaks. People either hated me or loved me, but either way I still always had … Continue reading

Sweat Pink Ambassador

Sweat Pink Ambassador

We believe that kicking ass is best done in pretty shoes. We’ve learned that real women sweat, and sweat hard. We know that assertiveness, strength, and ambition are the ultimate feminine qualities. We concede that sometimes it takes hours to get ready, but we’re also no strangers to just rolling out of bed and going. … Continue reading

Perception and Advice

I contemplated not going to Weight Watchers yesterday.I knew I’d weigh heavy from the weekend. I knew it’d disappoint me. I knew I’d be upset. And I did. And I was. I sat down next to my dad totally bummed and mad myself. “All that hard work down the drain because you can’t keep your … Continue reading

Seriously though…the storm is over.

Seriously though…the storm is over.

The exercise storm that is. Kevin is also getting back to the fitness which is immensely helpful for me. In fact, this week we’ve started the infamous Jillian Michaels – 30 Day Shred. Dun dun dun…. The funny store behind it is that I bought it maybe 5 years ago. Well, I can recall doing … Continue reading

Liebster Award

Liebster Award

I’m quite flattered to have been accepted the Liebster Award! Thank you Elaine! I’ve gotten a few recent comments/emails from people telling me how inspirational and motivating I am for them and y’all, that makes my day. I know that might sound silly, but I get how hard this journey is and how much I’ve … Continue reading

Baking Bunny Butts

I’m a sucker for alliteration. No lie. Easter came and went, but if there is an excuse for me to bake, – you betta believe I’m on it. I did a 4 layer vanilla cake with alternating pink and purple layers. The frosting is a butter cream and the grass/flowers are a marshmallow fondant I … Continue reading

35%

My official weigh in at WW on Saturday morning was 211.00. That is 35% of my highest weight lost forever. 35% – that is insane.   My first goal is to hit 199 (obviously) but I am ultimately looking to reach 175lbs as my goal weight and then focus on muscle/lifting/toning. I know for a … Continue reading
