I’m unsure as I write if I’ll post it. I try not to put too much negative self talk out into the universe anymore. I’ve struggled with feeling “pretty” lately. People tell me I am pretty all the time and yet, I rarely see it unless I catch a selfie at a good angle. My weight has been bouncing around on the scale between 159 and 165 lately. That’s awesome. 165 is my maintenance weight. [...]

It’s nearly five o’clock in the morning and I should be sleeping. I’m not though. I’ve had a lot on my mind lately. It’s been awhile since I actually shared what’s been going in my journey through written word. When I started my blog that’s what it was about, sharing my journey so that other people out there that might be experiencing the same sorts of things didn’t feel so alone. That was easy when [...]

The concept of being your “perfectly imperfect” self was first introduced to me by one of my heroes Heidi Powell. [ You can read her original article: I am (still) Perfect here] One of the biggest things I have struggled with post-weight loss is body image issues. The picture to the right is one of my favorite photos of myself. I feel like I look fierce, strong, happy and proud of what I have accomplished. [...]

Dear Slender Seekers, Sometimes you just have to stop and write. I've been quiet for too long. I've gotten off track and felt guilty. But today, I fixed it. Today, my first day off since New Years, today I promised myself to fix it, and from here on out, I am going to keep my promise. If you only knew how much weight that promise holds. Here we go. I've shared with you in the [...]

“I wish you could see yourself through my eyes.” That’s what someone said to me the other night while I was out and comparing myself to each and every woman in the room and felt like I didn't measure up.

Sometimes There Just Are No Words

People ask me often what I believe in. This is a hard question for me, but what I do believe in, without a doubt, is unconditional love. Unconditional love is a rarity in our world, it is not something that everyone is capable of giving and in truth I am not sure it is something that I ever would have understood had I not had the opportunity to experience it with my Father. My Dad [...]
