Are you looking for some real talk about losing weight? About taking care of YOU? About raising kids? About how to deal with the insanity that life loves throwing at us? Then, grab a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage and relax. I got your back.
We all have those moments where we feel like we're the only one struggling through life. No one understands. No one cares.
But, let's cut through the crap. We all have problems. Even the people who look like they have their shit together have baggage they lug around. But, the fact remains: we're not in this alone. It's only taken me nearly 50 years to figure this out.

I decided to create this blog for a few reasons.
I'm a writer. It's my career. My passion. Seemed to make sense.
I wanted to document my many journeys. No, not going around the world. For me, it's about finally getting myself healthy. And, that means going down paths that are rough physically and mentally. I want to share and remember all of it.
I need some accountability. I have tried fighting this battle alone. My success rate: o%. A big fat goose egg. Time for something different.
For years, I'd talk myself out of sharing my experiences. My head would throw all sorts of curveballs at me:
What do you have to offer?Well, I have lived more than 48 years, battled depression and anxiety, have a husband and two kids, experienced life with an alcoholic, been overweight for years...the list goes on. In other words, I have some interesting life experience to offer.
What makes you so special?Not a damn thing. I'm no different than anyone else, except I'm willing to write about my battles and victories. I'm ordinary. That means I'm hopefully relatable.
What if people laugh at you? Think you're a fraud? People are going to think what they want, whether I worry about it or not. I think I'll give not worrying about it a shot.
While I take things seriously, I tend to attack life with a healthy side of snark and honesty.
So, welcome to my journey. I'm confident you'll find something you can connect with along the way.
