Endo Schmendo

Hey y'all!

I saw my Endocrinologist this week. That's starting to be such a naughty word lol. While my levels are normal and I feel my new normal of "fine," I'm fat. Most people look at me and say you aren't fat, a little bit of weight looks good on you. I'm the heaviest I have ever been in MY life and I don't like it. Not one bit. My neck is slowly disappearing. I can't let it leave me!

What does my Endo say? The next time I come back I need to be AT LEAST 10 pounds lighter. He also maintains that my weight gain is a direct result of my snacking and has nothing to do with my no longer having a thyroid. I call BULLSHIT (sorry mom)!

I have NEVER had an issue with losing weight. Ever. Now though, it seems like the more I try, the more I gain. I'm eating 80% better than I normally do. I'm about to get some exercise in rotation. In my previous life, all I would have to do is change the way I eat and the weight would literally fall off. I have to adjust to this new life.

I'm still taking Synthroid and Cytomel. Aside from going back into "hyper" mode with my last change, I feel alright. Just tired. But I'm attributing that to the extra 41 pounds I'm carrying. Yep 41 pounds. Oh and even though I was technically in hyperthyroidism for like 3 months, I still didn't lose any weight.

I know the older I get the harder it will be to lose. So I'm buckling down and getting my act together. Not following any particular "diet," just making better choices and watching my portions. Hopefully getting more physical activity will help my cause!

I'll keep you posted. Unless I get fatter. Then no, I'm not telling you!

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks!

Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash!

I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL

I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one.



Here are what this product claims to be…

Holiday Party Etiquette

With the holidays coming up on us so fast, it’s only right that we talk party etiquette. I can only speak about Black party etiquette, so that’s what I will discuss here. I'm sure some of these rule can be applied across different cultures/ethnicities.




If you are invited to a party, gathering, dinner, or the like, there are some things that you just don’t do. If we invited you, we must like you at least a little bit. That can end quickly. Here are some general rules of Black house gatherings that expand beyond the holidays. You’re welcome.

Don’t assume all Black events start late. Yes…a lot of them do, but you don’t want to be the late one. If I tell you it starts at 3, I’ve most likely accounted for the lateness of my family members. We move on without them. Don’t be tardy for the party. Don’t show up empty handed. Even if you are told not to worry about bringing anything, bring something. Even if it’s a bottle of sparkling cider. There will be massive side eye if you show up empty…

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh.

She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes...



After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard!



She really enjoys Dial Watery Melon scen…
