What is food to you?

Recently, I have been evaluating my relationship with food and exactly what it means to me.  For most of my life, I've had a very unhealthy relationship with food.  It was a coping mechanism.  I would eat to celebrate something, eat when I'm bored, eat when I'm actually hungry (and even when I'm not), eat… Continue reading What is food to you?

A Lesson from my Brother

  We are human.  We have human experiences.  We experience heartache.  Sometimes we don’t reach our goals exactly when we want them.  Sometimes, we have to adjust our goals because they end up not being what we want.  We stumble. We fall. This past weekend, my family and I went to Nashville to watch my… Continue reading A Lesson from my Brother

HAPPY NEW YEAR! I know I'm almost 2 months too late.  I've been slacking, but I'm here and that;s what counts...right?  Anyway, I was taking some time to reflect on my previous year and actually write down lessons that I've learned in 2016.  I can honestly say that I have learned so much, and one… Continue reading Peace and Happiness.

Body Shaming?

Lately, I've seen multiple IG posts, Facebook posts, and random blog posts about body shaming.  However, once I started reading these articles, I discovered that they weren't what I thought they were.  I've always been used to smaller girls/guys making fun of me because I was bigger.  So when I thought of body shaming, I… Continue reading Body Shaming?

Have you slipped up on your journey to be a healthier you?  I'm not going to lie, I HAVE.  I didn't gain any weight, but I sure didn't lose any either.  But let's be realistic, life happens.  I started traveling every other week, work picked up, and I've started packing for my move.  It seems like there's… Continue reading So you’ve fallen off a bit…

It’s Easy to be Fat.

Every where you look, there's food.  Literally.  Its gotten so bad that you can order food from your phone.  A few weeks ago, I was in a particular restaurant that produces particularly delicious cheesecake and there was a sign on the door saying that you could download their app and BOOM...there's cheesecake.  That's absolutely amazingly...unhealthy. … Continue reading It’s Easy to be Fat.
