Why I Started This Online Journal About Curvy Girls Getting Healthy!

I have been very interested in being one of those "really healthy people" for quite some time, but I just haven't been able to be one of those know...because of "reasons."  I even have the nerve to talk about it on my lifestyle blog

My Mother was diagnosed with Diabetes about a week ago (both of my little sisters and a host of other family members have the disease) and I decided that I have got to be more proactive about my health.  For my Mother and for my future.  My thoughts are that if we are doing it together that we will be able to help each other through the questions and difficulties AND I can prevent the same diagnosis by acting like I already have Diabetes.

I have also started gaining weight (and that is NOT hot)!
*luckily it has just been about 10 pounds from my regular Curvaliciousness*

...and I used to look like this (BELOW) just about 20 lbs ago! You know I need to get on some get right!  I'm not trying to be all skinny...but most definitely healthy.

I have been somebody that always enjoyed fitness blogs (they are pretty much the only ones that I read) so I decided to start my own BUT specifically for the Curvy Girl in me and to help me keep track of all of the things work for me and the things that don't.

This site is going to be part online diary, part recipe book and part "way too honest" so that I can chronicle my weight, health and new lifestyle that I am deciding to embark upon.  If you are looking for Classy, BlackGirl....she isn't here. Well she is, but in this space I am just talking about health and wellness in Mind, Body & Spirit.
