May I be Happy?

Phew! Finally a moment to sit down with my thoughts and blog it out. Tuesday night, I bit the bullet and went for my first session with Dr. Wendy Ryan, with Walk and Talk Ottawa . To be honest, I nearly threw up in my car in the parking lot… nearly bailed at least 5 times, …

Post-dress shopping…

Today I tried on wedding dresses for the first time (Check out the more wedding related post over at my wedding website HERE) and.. can I just say.. WOW. Leading up to this day, my anxiety levels were through the roof. I’d read so many horror stories, and I knew my own body issues would …

Third time’s the charm?

I had my doctor’s appointment today to check up on how things are going. Good news? I’m healthy again!… Ever better news? I was cleared, and encouraged, to go for another full round of shakes! I know some are against, and some are for, and there are probably some who straddled the line right along …

Oh how I love food

I’ve been back on food for a few days now… it was a rocky start, upset tummy was angry with the sudden increase in fibre… but aside from that it’s been a pretty smooth transition. My energy levels sky rocketed and are back to normal, for which I am extremely thankful. So far I’ve managed …

Testing a theory

So if you know me in real life… or have me on facebook… You’ve noticed the erm…. hunger filled status updates lately. Actually lately I’ve tried to stop whining about it, but still … the hunger! It’s been torture, nothing at all like last time, and other than starting just after a cold I couldn’t …

2014 wrap up!

Well Hell y’all… Today is New Years Eve!!! And what a year it has been! My 2014 was somewhat of a roller coaster, with everything under the sun thrown in there for good measure.  I’m not sure where to start on this recap.. Well I guess for start was the biggest change to my life …

2 more sleeps

Hi World! On Friday, I go back to see my doctor at the weight management clinic… keep all fingers, toes, eyes, ears, legs and arms crossed that all goes well. IF all goes well, I’m hoping to get approved for another round of shakes. Since stopping the program, I have gained 10 lbs… part from …

On the other side

It’s been a few weeks now since I had my last group session at the Ottawa Weight management clinic. The reasons I haven’t blogged in all of this time, is that I wanted to take some time to reflect, really let it sink in, simmer around, percolate so to speak. My time with them has …

Trying to be normal

Normal is such a strange word… What exactly does it mean to be “normal”. For the most part, I find normality boring and something to avoid. I like being quirky and unique. I enjoy being able to embrace the parts of me that don’t necessarily conform to standard society. Being normal is boring… But when …
