Disney Food, All in? or All out? Let’s Find a Happy Medium!

Disneyland. The Happiest Place on Earth! A Place that is Full of Magic, Smiles, Love and of Course Delicious Disney Food, Treats and Goodies! Along my weight loss journey, every time I went to Disneyland I completely restricted my food. I brought my own food and snacks into the park and did not have any treats or food that I did not bring with me. While I was so focused and dedicated to losing weight, this restrictive mindset did not help me years later when I realized I did have a binge eating disorder. A completely restrictive lifestyle was only fueling the disordered eating. I am really trying to find a balance. A middle ground. Being a huge Disney fan and visiting the park often, I knew I wanted to be able to find that middle ground with my food and when I was in Disneyland as well. I know I can go to Disneyland and bring all of my own foods and be completely fine. I also know that it is ok to go into the park and try the treats, foods, and goodies and not stress while I am there. Both

Tips and Tricks for Surviving Halloween Candy!

When people think of Halloween, typically they think of costumes, trick or treating, scary stories, classic Halloween movies and yes Halloween candy. But for me, when I think of Halloween the first thing that used to come to mind was STRESS. Lots and lots of stress. Basically surrounding candy.  Honestly, some of you may think I am totally crazy, but I am not a huge fan of Halloween. I do not like being scared, I did not like trick or treating, I am scared of the dark and I hated dressing up and drawing any sort of attention to myself. The one thing about Halloween I did like was the candy. On Halloween, I used to eat so much candy I would become sick. Later in life, I would literally binge out on so much candy on Halloween because “that is what you were supposed to do.” But as I got older, and my eating disorder had grown, things really got out of hand..especially on Halloween.  I remember I used to BINGE out. Eating so much candy I thought I was going to throw up…and then eat some more. It was like something took over my body and I physically could

7 Months Post Thigh Tuck Recovery and Frequently Asked Questions

I cannot believe it has been 7 months since I had an inner thigh tuck on my legs and 5 months since having a skin graft on my leg! Time sure does fly when you are having fun … or in pain whichever you want to call it haha I have been getting a lot of questions about how I am doing now, post-surgery and how things are feeling and healing. So I decided to do a little Q&A style blog post and answer the top questions I have been receiving! If I did not answer one of your questions, leave it down below in the comments and I will be sure to answer your question as well. So let’s get this Q&A going!!! How am I feeling now? Well, I feel great! The incisions/scars have loosened up so much and I have full range of motion in both legs now. The skin graft is healing as beautifully as a skin graft can heal and is fading nicely. There still is a little bit of tightness in the area where the skin graft is and if I do a lot of squats, ride the bike too fast, or do jumping/stepping motions. When I workout

Something NEW!!! Disney, and Disneyland…How have they helped me to become who I am today?

Welcome to my NEW Disney Series! I am so excited to be starting this new Blog Series!!! The fact that I love Disney is no secret, and if for some reason you missed that little fact about me, now you know! Disney holds a special place in my heart. My whole family is Disney fans. We have been going to Disneyland at least once a year since I was born..well actually since I was in my moms stomach. Ever since I started sharing my whole fitness/weight loss journey, I have put off sharing much about my love for Disney, because I thought no one would care. So I just shared my weight loss and skin removal journey. I think it is time to introduce/share this different side of my story. This new side to my journey. Something that is a big part of my life, my journey, and is part of what makes me, me. I know this Disney Series might not be for everyone and that is ok!!! If you believe in the magic and dreams and that anything is possible with a little faith, love and pixie dust than you have come to the right place. This new series will be for
