Life has been a little crazy for me lately... working, finals, & preparing to move, but Im continuing on my path to a healthier life.  I've lost roughly 5 more pounds! Not to shabby since I was on a stand still for a while.
Its ironic how I started this weight loss journey for myself, but I'm realizing as the days go by, as I climb over these hurdles... I'm not just doing this for me. I'm doing this for my godchildren, my future children, my family as a while.  Its taken me nearly two months to wrap my head around the fact that I'm not so call blogging just to lose weight; I'm also on a journey to find who I really am. 
I talk the talk of acceptance, but do I abide by my own rules? Nope. I know I can't change the way I look overnight;; but I sure can change my & others perceptions about myself.

T Minus 3 days until FFF Week!

Full Figured Fashion Week starts on the 16th through the 19th && I can't wait to see what's shown.  Other than designer Monif C, who I’m crazy about, some other lines being showcased are Pure energy—Target’s plus size, which is affordable, but of course the quality is “what you pay for”, and Qyristal Frazier from season six of project runway. As I was looking at the designers’ websites and lookbooks, I can’t say I was extremely impressed, when it comes to my personal style. Most of the looks didn’t look very high fashion to me; they looked more costume-y. I have my fingers crossed, hoping that the collections shown will be so much more than what is on their websites right now.

My 10 Commandments

1.  Tell people they are beautiful, not only on the outside, but on the inside (it matters the most).

2.  A smile && hello can go a very long way.

3.  Selflessness is hard to do;; but the outcome is priceless.

4.  Sometimes people need a second, third, fourth && tenth chance;; this life is full of trials & errors ;; && perfection is boring anyways.♥
5.  Life is just another school;; we are always being taught lessons.

6.  These lessons are NOT mistakes;; && there is no such thing as failure, just lessons that didn’t work as well as others.

7.  There are always lessons to be learned; as Gandhi said, “live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

8.  I’ve seen this somewhere && loved it “other people are merely mirrors of you;; you cannot love or hate something about another person unless it reflects to you something you love or hate about yourself.”

9.  You set your limits;; you know all of the answers about yourself && you know what is best.

10.  Be Yourself-- at the end of the day, that's all you can do.

hello lovahhhhh;; aka white jeans

My new obsession are these white skinny jeans! I would've NEVER wanted to put on a white pair of skinny jeans until now.  By September, I will be in these jeans from CONFIDENTLY. 

Yes, I know Labor Day is in September &&& I don't pay attention to that "rule." If it looks good and appropriate, I'll wear it whenever. So I'm adding these to my mini goal along with my size D Spanx. I also like the shoes that are paired with them, they remind me of a pair that Miranda had on in Sex and the City 2.  Fortunately Bakers has a pair that are somewhat similar to the ones Miranda had on. 
I L-O-V-E these shoes and they are available at They'll be perfect for my family reunion's "all white party," where I will be wearing a skirt one of my closet friends, Christina made.  The skirt is gorg so the shoes have to be as simple as possible.
The White Skirt

It has lining underneath, but the outer layer is sheer with embroidered flowers.


Here I Come White Jeans
Weight: 259 yeaaaa! down 11 pounds.

diet po-lice where art thou?

This week= the worst week ever.  Well, I said that this will be a journey && it definitely is. Where should I start? I lost one pound as of last wednesday (i'm neglecting the blog;; work & school has taken over my life).  Weigh-in is tomorrow so keep your fingers crossed that I've picked up some of the slack from last week... 

As I sit here with this lovely (sarcasticly) bowl of soup, let me reflect on some of my mistakes from last week:

1. exactly what i'm doing now eating late (oops, my schedule is all over the place)

2. My lovely friend, Jenell (she can convince me to eat some of the most terrible things easily)

3. lack of excercise -->I'm trying, I really am

4. consistency (I really need to have somewhat of a set schedule)

Diet Po-lice;; here I am... take me in, NOW!
