Long time no talk!

Wow-it’s been a LONG time since I last posted in this lil’ ‘ol blog! Probably about a year and a half! Wowza. I started reading through some of my old posts and I cannot believe how far I have come. I can honestly say that I’m a different person (both mentally AND physically). I genuinely … Continue reading

Good Things!!

I’ve got this now found hope for the future and I want anyone who reads this to know good things are meant to happen for you, and you need to believe it. When I woke up this morning I was having negative thoughts about myself, not wanting to follow my meal plan and expecting the … Continue reading

What Was I Afraid Of?

For a long time I was afraid of going back to Hershey for support group because I was ashamed. I wanted to be the one who had it all together. The one who was doing GREAT! I didn’t want anyone to see what was really going on.  (Which is basically what I am continually working … Continue reading

His Kind of Love

We all think we know something about love. And we do. Hopefully you’ve experienced some kind of love in your life…whether it’s from your parents, a significant other, family members or friends. But until I felt His kind of love I never truly understood what it meant to feel loved wholeheartedly. A relationship with God … Continue reading

Reminder: Never Give Up

I received this letter this morning from a very good friend. It’s such a good reminder, no matter what you’re going through, never give up on God. (Of course I added random cute pics of Melody) “Hi Val: I wanted to drop you a note to encourage you not to give up on God, not … Continue reading

Way too many close ups…

Today started off just dandy! I woke up, went to the bathroom, washed my face, dried my face, and ripped out my nose piercing! That felt really good. I then proceeded to spend a good 15 minutes trying to get it back in before I gave up and had to put an earring in so … Continue reading

What Had Happened Was

I meant to post this yesterday and forgot. So anyways….let’s do a quick recap of the weekend.. After work on Friday I went for a short run, then Speeze joined me for another 2.5 miles. It was glorious. I love running with people (more so than running by myself). So if you are ever looking for … Continue reading

NO, I <3 You

Doesn’t it suck when someone tells you, “No?” “No, you can’t do that!” Think about when you were a kid, or if you have your own kids, when a parent says no to their child isn’t it because they love their child and are looking out for them? When someone tells me “no,” I immediately get … Continue reading

The Troof

Wus hap’nin, wus up (said in a T.I. voice, ofcourse)? I gotta say, I’ve been slacking in the blog department. I was doing well with posting consistently, then things started going downhill and I decided to keep my thoughts to myself. :) Sure I shared some of my struggles with you, but I tend to … Continue reading

Weekend Recap

So after I wrote my weekend recap yesterday I accidentally xed out of it without saving. Oops. I was blogging at work, and although I don’t necessarily feel like my blog is inappropriate by any means, I don’t think I’m ready to share it with my co-workers just yet. So, when my supervisor was walking … Continue reading
