Day 4 First sign: the ring fits

Day 4

Day 4 and I am still on track. 
 I am eating less and not craving anything, which  is great since I usually crave pasta and chips.  My first goal is  12 lbs or 12" or a combo of both  in the first 24 days.

My rings are loose, and even slide around.  Tomorrow I measure myself and get on that scale.  I am quite excited as I have been wanting a breast reduction (the girls have gotten quite large over the past year)  This may be just the  fix.   If you suffer this fate you can relate right ?

What area of your body shows extra weight for you?


The Journey Begins

Pounds vs Inches (1)

Each year as the seasons change from Spring and summer to Winter and fall  I  switch out my clothes.
The last two years I  have found myself with less and less in my closet to wear.I am sure you know what I am talking about right?   We make one pile  for fits us now.  One for  I just might fit into soon , and one for  Oh those are way to big.
This year I was shocked, sad and mad that I now only had two piles,  too small and  fits me now.I have tried to exercise, watch what I put in my mouth, drink water to no avail.
Since I am always telling others to “love themselves” no matter what  I decided to take a dose of my own advice.

I am now on a journey to find personal happiness  with my body. This Journey begins today,  to keep me accountable I decided to share my journey in hopes others can share and or join me in this crusade to  first and foremost get healthy, feel better and most of all Love ourselves.


Grandma The Best Title Ever

I  gained the Title of Grandma at a very young age.   Most women would not want that title  however I cherished it with open arms. Many come up with a cute title as to not admit they are a Grandma, not me I declared I am a Grandma.

Being a young Grandma entitled me to roll around on the floor, chase (and be chased)   go down the slides at the playground and oh so much more.

When someone would ask one of my Grandsons  “is that your momie” and they would declare  “No silly, That is my Grandma”

This is one of my favorite pictures of my Grandsons

I am the proud Grandma of three Teenage boys (oh where did the years go).   Happy to say I was at each of the births, even cutting the cord  for the youngest one.

One thing I learned right off the bat,  your grandchildren will look at you with love and adoration that their parents never did or ever will.

My grandbabies are 18,16 and 14  Christmas 2016



it won’t be long before I hear the words  “this is your Great Grandma”

Let’s just hope it is a few years away as I want my Grandsons to enjoy life before they take on a family.


Stop and Smell the Roses

We woman, myself included  get so busy in our day to day lives  we forget to Enjoy our life.

Do you find yourself at the end of the day Tired and exhausted and a little sad?

Why is this?   It is because we forget to stop and smell the roses.

The Roses I am referring to  are not the proverbial roses, even though those are quite pleasant  indeed.


I am referring to the roses of life, our Children, spouses and all the other people in our lives.


Roses  that give us joy – our hobbies,  just taking a walk and sitting on a bench and just enjoying life


When was the last time you smiled and said  ” In this moment I am happy”?

If you are like me, and get so busy with “life”  try this little trick.   Set your alarm (at a different time each day)   To

Stop, take a break   and to smell the beautiful essence called Life.
