All I’ve Got This Week Is A Quote!

So this week, I’ve worked A – Lot! And I still have 4 more shifts to go before I get a much deserved vacation with my loves!! Instead of writing a crappy post, I decided to postpone it until next week! (Because I don’t do crappy! ?????… You’re welcome!) I will say this… This nurse […]

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 […]

The Journey… Day Zero.

“It’s time for a change, time to face the mirror, and time to dance with my inner most demons. Tomorrow my life will change. My journey will begin. My inner self will step out of the depths and allow the light to expose me one layer at a time.” -BadCupcakeGirl

“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 […]

About Me

I’m like a lot of you out there. I’m a mom, wife, nurse, & now new found blogger! I’ve always struggled with my weight and actually in some form or another I’ve always found a certain pleasure in writing my thoughts. I love to be who I am, uncensored. I feel like sharing my weight […]

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 […]
