My Mother… 

I was born in Miami, Florida to Cuban/American parents in the great year of 1981. I am the “middle child”. I grew up (from the time I can remember) a very “comfortable” life surrounded by family. Enriched everyday by my siblings, parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles and so many more! Today, I thought it would be good […]

I’m So Much More Than A Cupcake Addict… I’m Superwoman! (Or Not?) 

“It’s just a fast food line, what’s wrong with you? Seriously relax! No, like for real… are you about to lose your shit? Breathe, breathe, breathe… What did they say? Shhh! Be quiet… Oh God! I can’t breathe, I’m having a heart attack! Am I having a heart attack? Oh my God my kids are […]

Controversy Loves The Spotlight…

I was recently introduced to a show on TLC that my daughter (the tween) thought would be fun to watch together. She has found shows such as “Little People, Big World” and “My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” (have you seen this show?? ?? OMG it’s so ridiculous but I’m addicted! I LOVE IT!) to be very […]

Stepping Out Of The “Closet”, Where I Ate!

I’m on my way home (alone) from work or anywhere, I stop at the Golden Arches for a quick bite. “Yes, I’ll have a plain cheeseburger, medium fry, an apple pie, and an orange hi-C…” I listen for my total and proceed to the next window. After paying, I smile politely ☺️… the nice lady on the […]

That Time I Made A Commitment… 

I recently had someone ask me what my plan was to “lose” weight and get healthy. They also asked me what methods I had tried in the past & what my goals were… I’ve also had people ask when I’m gonna actually start… Initially, I was like “whoa! are you an intervention agent sent here […]

A Picture Worth A Thousand Pounds! 

Last month, my Tween wanted to create this “bucket list” so she wouldn’t be “bored all Summer ?” (<—that emoji is EXACTLY the face she made as she told me about said “bucket list”!) Being the adventurous and ahhhhmazing mom that I am… ?… (Hahahahahahaha I snorted as I typed the adventurous part!) If you know […]

“Liar-Goose!” When Your 3 Year Old Calls You Out! 

I’ve talked a little about my “tween”… It is now time to talk about my “THREENAGER”! (Yes, I said “threenager”. If you are unsure what this terms means… It’s basically the “terrible 2’s” and the “teen” years rolled into an adorable little ‘adult in a pint size body’ package. (So adorable… as I gag myself […]

Hashimoto’s? You mean I’m not crazy? WHAT?! – WHAT?! 

I was dreading the recheck appointment this past week… Why? Well for many reasons but mostly because I failed. I’m a failure! ? (the crowd gasps!) A fraud! ? (the crowd inhales loudly with disbelief) A loose-lip-get-in-trouble-false-promise-morbidly-obese-disappointment! (Ugh, that was a nasty reality check… Goodness that was harsh! Ewe that was down right awful! ?) […]

Stop Staring! I’m Fat, Not A Circus Freak!

I think it’s important to let you all into my world… (Enter at your own risk!) I think that you should understand why I do what I do, why I say what I say, and why I think the way I think. So, here we go… Yes, this blog is about me and my struggles but […]

“Intervention”

Helloooo… It’s me… (And enter Adele’s Voice) New challenges ahead!  Nah just kidding… Same challenges just days, weeks, months, years (you get the point) later.  I still love food… Or don’t I? Maybe I just eat to eat? (Epiphany!)  Since you’ve been away… (Well you’ve probably never left?) I mean since I’ve been away nothing’s […]
