My First Blog....

Ever watch the biggest loser, and wish, with acheing pangs that could be you? Yet... What are you doing while watching it? Sitting on our booties. Ok, ok, maybe not all of us, but I know I am. Ever see those people that receive the weight loss surgery and wish your insurance would cover that? I know I have. I get so wrapped up in other lives about how they are "lucky" to have that oppertunity. But came to a realization... we ALL have that oppertunity. I dont need to go under the knife, or be on the worlds GREATEST show lol. I need to start investing in me. My heath. I may not know all the secrets, but I am pretty sure it starts with MOVING.

I heard a saying the other day. Triple F's. What does that mean? FIT FIERCE AND FABULOUS! That my friends, is going to be me. While I'm not to far off on the fierce and fab lol, I need the FIT to help tie them all together.

Personal story....
Ok so I am going to try and leave my personal life out of this as much as possible, but will involve it where need be. IE to my triple FFF struggle. So basically.... I grew up in a hmmm... not so great situation, but
I def had some people in my life who helped make it amazing. I teetered with weight probably my whole adolescences. going from "normal" to just a lil thick. I became a Momma at 18, and never lost the 70 lb baby weight. Got married to an amazing man at 21, and well... basically let myself go. Why lie. He has a sweet tooth and so did I! I AM NOT BLAMING MY WEIGHT ON HIM. Just to get that out there. I have a couple obstacles that may effect me, but I will push past them. I have been diagnosed with PCOS, and take medication daily that effects my metabolism as a side effect. For those who don't know what PCOS is, I def encourage you to google it :)

Why am I doing this?
Lets count the reasons shall we? I'm tired. Litterly tired. Need to boost my body. Ever want to just do something? I want to run, that's right run. Wake up in the am and go for a morning run, be free. My dream. O and lets see, shop it the regular sections at stores, heck yes! And most importantly, be more active with my kids. My son who has my genes, has become a little chubby, and he has been making comments about it as of late. Asks if a shirt makes him look "skinny". I always remind him how handsome he is, but lets face it, kids are cruel these days, and some terds have made ill comments to him. I wont cover up the issue any longer, I will lead him by example and be a positive role model in his life. Hes my world, and any parent wants their child to not hurt. And if he ends up deciding to be a lil thick, so be it! But I will give him the encouragement and tools needed. My kids are the loves of my life, and I will do what it takes.

So.... Here it goes.
A 365 day overhaul of me. My body, my health. I will be sending out invites now to join/follow my blog. And if anyone wants to train me, give advice, you will def be mentioned. While I cant change America, I can change me, and hope to encourage others in the process.

I wont be posting pics as of yet... nor my weight. But will. But know... I have almost half of me to loose, and my journey? It starts today.

Ciao for now!


  1. The best of luck kiddo. My daughter has PSOS too and I have the Disorder (PSOD). I have 3 good friends with PSOS too, 4 counting you. Not many people understand how hard it is to lose weight with this imbalance in your system. The medication helps and I lost 138lbs when I was on it and maintained the loss for years, then I had to switch insurance and couldn't get the meds anymore. It all creeped back in a year.

  2. By the way Steph, That is me as James. I was at work on his computer and didn't realize :)

  3. oooooo haha I was so confused! Pcos def sucks, but hope to move past that.

  4. soooooo how are you doing? Did you survive the superbowl food?!

  5. NOOOOO lol I stuffed my face. Ok while it wasnt THAT bad, it def wasnt what I was going for lol

  6. bad girl!!! :) Just make sure you work extra hard this week to make up for it...and don't skip breakfast! - "embrace the unknown, believe in you, face failure head on."

  7. I know what you are going through on this journey, I too am going on the same journey. I can not go to the gym so I am doing what works best for me; Walking!!
    Diets (the ones where you have to eat this or that) do not work for me so I have changed what i eat to healthier food ... slowly.
    My daughter has PCOS and she is having issues with her weight as well :(
    I am on your team and together we will win the battle of the bulge :)

  8. Hi Stephen, I have set up some blogs on weight loss because I have started losing weight. The past 2-1/2 weeks I have lost 15 lbs on Plexus Slim products. I have never lost weight that fast and I owe it all to Plexus Slim giving me that little extra will power to turn down food. You can see more at this plexus pink blog I set up. there is a section on Plexus Slim. Feel free to post on my blog. i'm working on setting that up. visit
