Over the past two and a half years, I’ve lost weight. I’ve gone from the biggest I’ve ever been (size 28) to the smallest I’ve ever been (size 18).
I’m excited to share that I’m doing a Tedx Talk this week!
As you can imagine, I am a little nervous, but I am doing everything I can to prepare. The last decision is… what should I wear?
Over the years you’ve seen me do Wendy Williams show, the Rachael Ray show and of course, theCURVYcon so you know the different style choices I like to make for special moment.
I’m a firm believer that taking care of yourself. Health as a practice is extremely important to me– I’m more concerned with doing things that keep me strong and healthy than how I look or what the scale says. So it is time to move forward and get back into my routine of things.
For me, this means getting back into the gym, karaoke with friends, reorganizing my closet… basically, anything that is going to help bring order back into my life.
This summer I rented a house on Martha’s Vineyard with my girlfriends. A lot of my friends went to really fancy schools in Boston, so they’ve been going to Martha’s Vineyard since undergrad, but this was my first time.
I had zero expectations coming into the trip, I just knew I would be on a charming island with my friends. In the end the 7 days we spent on the island is my favorite thing I’ve done all summer.
Martha’s Vineyard is nice because some areas feel like the woods and some areas feel like the beach. I really liked being able to tap into both of those vibes each day.
Before I jump into things to do, here are some quick things I learned.
