Back To The Weight Loss and Motivation

Stroller: Urbini Omni Plus Travel System | Blanket: SwaddleDesigns  | Sunglasses: Forever21 (similar here)

A couple of years ago on FashionShyChild I would share everything about my weight, weight loss and overall heath in general. One day all of that just stopped! And to be honest I was discouraged in myself and basically just fell off of even trying. I didn’t want you all to see my failure and I shouldn’t have done that. I should have showed how there is going to be those ups and downs when your trying to accomplish something, especially weight loss and dealing with the emotional side of food.

Since giving birth two months ago and even through out my pregnancy, everyone has been asking me how much did I Loose and how did I do it. I’m just going to get straight to the point with this one. When I was pregnant and throughout my pregnancy I didn’t gain ANY Weight! Yes, you read that correct I gained nothing. I actually loss 35 lbs in total throughout my pregnancy. I don’t recommend anyone doing that and i didn’t do it to myself aka dieting. My body just responded differently to being pregnant and I was just loosing like it was nothing. It did get to the point when my OB was wondering what was going on but she did see that I was over weight to begin with. So it did help me out.

When it come down to the weight of after pregnancy, I did loose an extra 20lbs. That makes a total of 55lbs in all. I haven’t done anything different and I’m actually eating more to make up for breastfeeding. I don’t want to gain any of it back and that’s when I decided it’s time to get back on track and make a change. That’s what we are going to talk about today.

A couple of weeks ago I was cleared by my doctor. Meaning I can exercise again and basically do whatever’s I want because the main parts have healed. I want to share my weight loss experience with you all again. I know I run a plus size type of blog but being healthy and happy with yourself is most important. So If i could encourage you to exercise, loose weight, change your eating habits or even just drink one extra glass of water a day… I have done something good with the platform I have.

So let’s get into what I’m going to do.

I have updated and got back on to “My Fitness Pal”, so if you have one and want to follow me on there you sure can. I will be updating my weight loss and also sharing exercises I do. If your in the need for some new health apps, I made a list of my favorites in the past and you can find them HERE. I will be mostly walking for now because that works for me and my situation with having a newborn.

That being said I will keep you updated on anything that will change and things that I will add. Remember there is always Snapchat, Twitter and Facebook that you can also check out to get information on what I’m doing throughout the day.

PS: Always remember you can reach out to me personally for motivation. 💋

Meet My Daughter


Since I have talked about my pregnancy on FashionShyChild, I thought it would only be right to share the end results… my lovely daughter. I have put this off for weeks now and I don’t really know why. A lot of you who follow me on social media (Snapchat, Instagram and Twitter) have already seen pictures of her and may even know her name. But this always gets tricky because I choose to put myself and information out there and since she can’t make decisions for herself, it sometimes feels wrong to share because the Internet can be cruel and judgmental.

Baseball Casual

It’s hard for me to believe that it’s basically Summer. Even though Summertime doesn't officially start tell June 21 but this heat is making it feel more real.

Since i have got in the swing of things, of being a new mother reading can now be back added to something i like to do.

Liquid Ice - Energy Drinks
This energy drink tasted so good and didn't taste like you thought it would. To me it tasted like a soda that lost it fizz. I really enjoyed it and i would have to say if you see it anywhere or even online due test it out. I really want to try the other flavors now.

DayClear - Pain Reliever
Since i am breast feeding, i didn't test this out due to the fact that i cant have certain medications. but i do like how there is know dyes in this medication.
No Acetaminophen, Alcohol, Dyes, Artificial Flavors

Real Chemistry - Deluxe Luminous 3 Minute Peel
I like this product a lot and i would never pass up testing out a mask. The only thing is, im trying not to love it because i think the price of a full size one is just way to high. I cant justify spending that but if you could then i would say go ahead because it really is nice.
Not Tested on Animals
20% OFF- use coupon code: OhGoodie

Evo Hemp - Cashew Cacao Hemp Protein Bar
i was expecting this bar too taste like chocolate. That it did not taste like. It was okay but not something i would recommend or tell you, you need to try.

Bug Protector - Mosquito Repellent
This has to be the best smelling bug protector out there! OMG, i am in love! This product smells amazing. It has been very warm where i live and over Memorial Day weekend i did test this product out and i didn't get bit not once. I love how they use essential oils, so i know it would be safe for me to use around my newborn. It also works as a great room scent... just saying.
Deet Free

Ultima Replenisher - Electrolyte Powder
I like the taste of this powder and i did get mine in Cherry Pomegranate. I wish it did come with maybe two more samples, that way i could see how it really works because when i did test this powder out i was starting back to working out.

Herbal Zap - Digestive Support Herbal Supplement
I didn't test this product this time around only because i did receive it before and i didn't like it at all.

Enfusia - Bath Bomb
This was my first time using a bath Bomb and i must say, i really enjoyed it. I loved the scent of this one (Arabian Sandalwood) and it was very relaxing. It did fizz and foam like it stated, so that's a plus.

Good Natured - Baked Ranch Vegetable Crisps
I love all kind of veggie chips and these one was right on that boat too. the only think i really do have to say is, these one didn't taste like the rest. These ones actually tasted like real veggies... i was shocked.
Gluten Free, Trans Fat Free

SCENTBIRD: First Impression & Review


When it comes to fragrances and scents in general, im a really picky person. I like one thing and not the other. For example: I cant stand floral scents, im drown to more sweets but if the floral scent had another scent i liked in it, then i could make an exception. I'm very indecisive and annoying when it comes to picking a fragrance i like. So, when it comes down to buying one i wont due it unless i had already tested out the fragrance in some way... like having a sample of it or using it in a store multiple times.

My New Norm

the new norm

Maternity Nursing Bra: Walmart |  Car Seat: Urbini

I know a lot of you have been wondering where i have been or whats taking me so long to get into the grove of things, when it comes to posting like i used too. Well first thing is, i have a newborn baby and she now comes first in my life. Her scheduled of being up and a sleep have been a changing thing from day to day or even week to week.  So, that leaves me with limited time but its getting better. I guess the main thing i am trying to say is that, THIS IS NOW MY NEW NORMAL!
