Starting Somewhere

So a lady came in my office yesterday. We talked and talked about how we are going to do a 9 day cleanse together. We talked about why it’s time to get started. We talked about what got us there. For the first time in this little journey, I understood exactly why I had to keep going.

1. I am deserve to wake up without neck pain.

2. I deserve to be able to enjoy food, real food. I want to know what that tastes like.

3. I deserve to be changed by people and help to change people too.

4. More than anything, my family and friends deserve to get the very best me.

I am in my 180’s as of this morning, barely. 189lbs, for those counting that is 16lbs thus far. I put on a pair of jeans that just 3 months ago I was keeping buttoned with a rubber band to expand the waist, I have room.

On Wednesday, I gave away half my closet that was too big. The clothes that are too small do not scare me. I tell them every morning, “I am coming for you.” The clothes still don’t believe me, but I know better.

If I could tell the world one thing, it would be that celebrating little victories are  the cornerstone to healthy living.

Little Victory yesterday: I found anew love for beets. Ginger steamed beets from Whole Foods. Delicious! Who would have thought.

Cheers to paper rainbows and little victories. I look forward to taking you along on my journey.

Let’s finish with a song, just #pressplay

July 14th

I have been marinating for 31 years. Since 15 I have been struggling with self image. I hear the advice and opinions of others. I took them all to heart, good and bad, it was overwhelming. For more than half my life, I have been overwhelmed with weight, food, body image. This is not the way it is supposed to be, for me or anyone else. Today this has to change.

This is…

This is an experiment in…



self image.

weight loss.




This is an experiment in seeing me.
