Watchers of the Weight

As the never-ending saga that it is...I have gained back all the weight that I lost at the beginning of the summer! I would like to say it is all my mom's fault for her always cooking food that I can't resist, but truth be told I can't blame anyone but myself this time around. Today my cousin told me that I am the reason "fat girls" commit suicide...I beg to differ. I think we all have struggles and that anyone that is not happy about their weight should do something about it...in a healthy manner of course. Whether that be to gain weight or to lose it. I stand at 5 feet 11 inches and I guess to other folks I carry my weight well. I only have a problem when I have to lay down and button my pants or the waist of my pants (or the button) leaves an impression in my flub...or as in the latest case...I bend over (forward) and break a zipper! So as my number on the scale reaches closer to 200 I have once again decided it's time to make a change. I don't w

Big Chop...Again!

Hair Today...Gone Tomorrow. If you know me, you know that my hair has always been a form of expression for me. Sometimes it speaks a little to LOUDLY but whatever! :-) I believe that there is little that we actually have control over, but hair...is totally controllable! As long as my hair is healthy I'm good!

For the past 9 months or so I have been growing dread locs...much to the dismay of many, but they all actually learned to love my locs. It was a labor of love and I admit that I was in love with my locs. But on a rainy Saturday morning, I decided that I was ready for a change...and while the action itself was impulsive, I did actual

While YOU Are Working Help Me Be Still...

I still consider myself to be a youth in Christ. I still have so much to learn and everyday is a new struggle. But I am trying. Recently I have been going through a lot of internal turmoil and instead of running to my friends and/or family, I turned to God. I've always been a prayerful person, but this time it was something different. I turned off everything, tv, radio lights, etc. and I got down on my knees and opened my mouth. Not knowing what was going to come out...I let go of every emotion that I had been keeping bottled up and I cried like a hungry baby with a wet diaper. He fed me and removed the soil. So often we put our faith in people...and almost every time they let us down. I'm a person that thrives on relationships and put love of my friends and family up so high that when someone hurts my feelings the fall is devastating and heart breaking. That is something I am learning to change. I have to stop depending on man to be faithful to me. I know that a relationship
