I've always been pretty, but I was fat.
I am a pretty girl, but I’ve never been “thin”. I’ve always been curvy, muscular, athletic, or just flat out…thick. I was always told that I was built the way I was because of genetics, bone structure, and a slow metabolism. Those statements are lies. I can lose weight. I am losing weight. I’ve lost a great deal of weight since I changed my life. I’m up to...
Hero or Villain?
I’m doing well. I’ve lost another pound. I have a question for you: if you had to be labeled would you be a “hero” or a “villain”? I have been thinking about this all day. I don’t really know what I would be, but here’s what I do know: I know that I have a good heart and a strong mind, but I don’t always choose the route that everyone else...
!Holiday Miracle! My weight stayed the same!
Over the course of the extended holiday weekend, my weight stayed the same! It was hard as hell when my neighbor brought over peanut butter rice crispie squares covered in chocolate frosting. I knew I didn’t want that them, but eating shit is a holiday tradition. Right?! Not anymore. My mantras: I don’t want to be a fatty. I am thin. I am healthy. I control what enters my body. I am...
New Wave Detectives: Know when to make a hipster... →
newwavedetectives: As Dorothy Gambrell once said, hipster jokes are often a lazy way to make people the Other. But that doesn’t mean the word hipster hasn’t lost meaning - you just have to know what that meaning is. If you don’t believe in consumer culture and you genuinely believe in DIY, thrift stores and…

"just one bite" →
This article is about how dopamine levels in the brain can drive us to eat junk. This is why “just one bite” can drive you over the edge. Uggh. I’ve felt that clawing, nagging, obsessive feeling about food most of my life. I had always wondered why I felt such an uncontrollable urge to stuff my god damn pie hole after eating sweets, something salty, or fatty. So, this holiday...
My BMI gets lower everyday.
Last night before bed, my weight was 199! BEFORE BED! I’M UNDER 200 BEFORE BED! It’s been a good year and a half since I’ve been this weight. I am so pleased. Every morning when I look in the mirror envision myself thin and trim. It’s a smoking hot vision! ha! My BMI gets lower everyday! It’s currently 28.1 and I lost another pound this morning! I’m down to...
major mood improvement
I was absolutely grumpy & then I ate a salad with romaine & spinach with soaked almonds & raisins. I'm the full & feel about 115% better! Thank you, nutrients!

My laundry is on the line.
Because you work some fancy job, YOU ARE NOT BETTER THAN ME. Because I live the life I do, I AM NOT BETTER THAN YOU. How about we all try to be fucking equal, loving, & caring for a while & move forward as a unified group of people. Let us not be divided by social class, race, religion, familial status, & sex. Rather let’s band together & set some of our ideologies aside to...
"Get your ass in gear & get thin!"
At the beginning of November, I started reading Kris Carr’s book, Crazy Sexy Diet. This book inspired me deeply to change the way that I eat and how I feed my family. I bought a juicer and went to town on feeding my family more alkaline foods. Actually, it wasn’t that simple. My hubs and I started detoxing on November 13th. We cut all dairy, meat, gluten, and SUGAR out of our everyday diet! That...
