The harshness of reality and the journey to change

I’ve had a few people ask me if I was still writing for this blog. I was a little shocked because I didn’t think anyone actually read this blog. I responded with yes of course! BUT (there’s always a but) I’ve been struggling emotionally and with my words. As anyone who has had a baby, […]

When Comfort Trumps Fashion

Before I ever even got pregnant I had this horrible fear about myself and my appearance. My fear was that I wasn’t going to look pregnant, that I would just look fat. You can’t blame me, after all, you hear all these stories about plus size women and how they never get that full “round […]

I’m so PHAT in my ‘Kini

I hate shopping. Well really I have a love/hate relationship with shopping for clothes. Shoes, on the other hand, I have no problem leaving with multiple pairs of shoes in one trip. I love to go shopping, but I hate spending money on myself and I HATE, HATE, HATE finding clothes for my body type. […]

My Biggest Pregnancy Struggle (so far)

I am human and I struggle with a lot of things. I struggle with my pride, with apologies, with learning to hold my tongue, with being a sister, daughter, wife, mother, and with life. I struggle with every fucking thing. And right now I have added another struggle. My weight. Not just my weight in […]

Let’s Get Physical

After the visit that I had with the doctor I can honestly say it was the first time I actually decided to do something about my weight.  Those who truly know me I’m pretty damn positive about my body. No one loves me more than me. Conceited I know, but if I don’t love me […]

Baby Talk-Part III

In November of 2015 it was time for my annual woman’s wellness appointment. I probably should have gone right after we decided to start trying and I got off birth control, but since we are being real honest here I knew my yearly was coming up and the appointment would be free. I wasn’t trying […]

Baby Talk-Part II

There are three women that I talk to every single day even if it’s a simple hello. They have been my rock, my guidance, my voice of reason and my biggest cheerleaders. When Roy and I decided it was time to start trying for a baby naturally I ran to these three women to hear […]

Baby Talk-Part I

Roy and I met in November of 2012, started officially dating in February of 2013, got engaged in January of 2014 and then married in December of 2014. Now looking back at it everything happened fairly quickly it seems. In those two years before we married we had always discussed expanding our family. Roy has […]

It’s Not Easy Being Pretty & Plump

All of my life I have struggled with my weight. I can’t remember a time where I was ever truly “skinny”. My sister Tiffany, on the other hand, has always been skinny. Besides being total opposites in looks, we have total opposite personalities and I wouldn’t have it any other way. I’ve heard a few […]
