BoPo 5-Oh!

Typically, I'm really good about saving posts when they give me inspiration for a post.  But I have a feeling that I just didn't save what I thought I saved. UGH!!!  In other words, we're going off memory, folks.

It was sometime in the first week of January that someone went all the way off on people and called them the Body Positive Police.  Oh, I laughed.  There was so much truth in the statement that I couldn't help but laugh.  Long story short, this person said the body positive movement was nothing but a joke if you didn't include every body.  She is right!!!

Keep in mind I said this took place the first week of January aka New Year's Resolution time.  People want to lose weight, cool.  I've lost just over 50 pounds.  I'm still plus size.  So am I not body positive because I wanted to lose weight?

Is Tess Holliday body positive being a plus model without the acceptable plus model body?  I think she is, but a lot of you call her names and say she…

Will I Be My Valentine?

I am fully aware that Valentine's Day was last week, but I am so excited for this post!  It was definitely a great few days of fun.  Since I like a bit of order, I will go in order for the activities that I participated in.  And just fyi, this could be a long post, so please stick with me...even if you have to read it in more than one sitting.

Wednesday - February 13
I'm going to go ahead and admit that I was on the fence about going to this event on this night.  It wasn't the event, it was the night.  I look forward to going to church on Wednesday nights and I hate missing it.  However, I am so happy that I decided that I went to dinner.  Let me tell you what happens when you put together a group of people who don't know each other, but all have a connection to the person who invited them - GREAT THINGS!!!  The networking that ended up taking place was epic and it was so great to see such a large group of people eating, having a few drinks, and laughing.  It was so up…

The Year Of Ta(ME)ika

Each year, I start off with a time of focus.  I get home from work around 430ish and my TV stays off until 8pm.  I may not even turn it on then.  The only thing I'll see for sure is my Thursday night shows.  It's just one part of my self care.  But I've added other aspects this year and I love it! 

Nothing After 9 Unless you are one of the two people who went half to create me, I'm not responding to you after 9pm (8pm on Thursdays).  If I work out and I go for longer than expected, I'll talk to you the next day...or it's possible you will have to wait until I'm in the right head space.  Oh, and if you see me on social media, that is me still having some time to myself.  I've actually had people call or text and then be like but you're on social media.  What I really wanted to say was and?!  But instead, I actually responded.  I shouldn't have done that because it blurred a pretty solid boundary, but this year will be different.  Plus, YES, I'…

And that's that!

Well, since I haven't talk to you in a while, let me go on ahead and get something out of the way...

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Alright, so I did something a little different this year.  If you missed it, I went live on my Instagram page on NYE to do my final blog post of the year.  It was fun and I think I might go live a little bit more.  We'll see how that goes. 

Let me see what I can catch you up on.  I had a great Christmas and NYE in Orlando.  I'm still losing weight (but sharing about that more on Instagram), I went to see The Man Of The Woods Tour, walking in my first fashion show with a local designer, and I'm sure I'm forgetting something.  Pretty good roundup, right?  Well, I also did something else...

I deleted every single blogger chat I had in my calendar.  I also mentioned it to my followers on Twitter and no one was really phased by it...live and in action.  I did have a few people DM me and ask me my reason, especially I had tried to get into the blog chat g…

Lil Miss Perfect

Peep that title!  I was called that a couple of weeks ago and I just can't shake it.  Since I can't shake it, let's talk about it. 

It's not about being perfect.  For me, it was never about being perfect.  I'm not looking for perfect.  Perfect doesn't exist...at least not in this realm.  But do you want to know what does exist?  Functional!!!  I'm not trying to be perfect, but I am definitely all for being functional.  And if that means making some changes to my life, so bit it. 

My parentals have always told me when you know better, you do better.  For my fellow Christians, I will refer you to 1 Corinthians 13:11.  Don't worry, this will be the only biblical reference, probably. 

The point is that in this life, things are going to happen.  We are going to experience different things.  And whether we want to believe it or not, we're going to mature faster than some of the people our same age.  But there is one thing that will always remain true - yo…

FAT

I do well at keeping my private life private.  I'm the best at keeping a low profile.  I'm absolutely awesome when it comes to the silent treatment.  And quite frankly, I can disappear like no one else.  But right now, I need to let you in.  No, I'm not giving you any tea about my last relationship.  If that's what you're looking for, stop reading.  Right now, it's all about me and some things I'm feeling.  

There is a trio of us that do our absolute best to meet twice a month.  Typically, it's for dinner because we are pros at shutting down restaurants.  Then we move out to the parking lot and continue the laughs.  We also have a pretty fun group chat too.  That's where this started.  

I confessed that I was having a hard time with something, but needed to talk it out.  For the second time that weekend, we met to eat and chat.  I had a confession.  

When it comes to dating while plus, I'm not confident at all!!!  It isn't rejection that is the…

C to the E

So...it's been a while.  Seriously, it's been a long while.  Well, let me get you caught up.  Since New Year's Day, I've lost 46.3 pounds.  My work schedule got all the way cray cray because of Hurricane Florence.  I have gone through a breakup.  And I finally decided to make the following announcement...

I'm Celibate!!!
I haven't had sex since January 2017.  I'm working on breaking my streak of three and a half years.  For those of you trying to do the math, I'm on a mission to make it past July 2020!  The only exceptions is if someone comes along and decides to change my last name...or at least adds  hyphen to it.  
Let me tell you a few things celibacy is not... Celibacy is not you asking me if we can have sex.  I've told you my stance on the subject.  Either move on or take this time to join me in celibacy. Celibacy is not a phase.  At least to me it isn't.  Either you are cool with my lifestyle or you need to move on with your life. Celibacy …
