Single Ladies: Confidence Games

Hello Divas!!!!

So I have been watching this show recently called Single Ladies. It is really interesting, although I do think that at times it can come across as a little bit fake.

This episode Daryl served his wife with divorce papers ON HER BIRTHDAY and that small act got me to hate him. I know he is upset because she cheated on him but she was really sorry and she was taking steps to reconcile their marriage.

If he wanted to serve her I think he could at least have waited until some time after...but he put the papers in a gift box and dressed in his good suit and then when she opened the box there were the divorce papers. That was a very low blow.

Some of the acting leaves a lot to be desired but it is a refreshing show...AND there is a super fabulous gay guy named Omar on the show!!!!!

Going To A Dermatologist

Hello Divas!

So I have finally gotten really tired of my dark armpits and I scheduled an appointment with a dermatologist in town.

I have been thinking about it for a long time but I know that those things are very expensive and I wanted to be able to save some money because I know it will be a lot even with my insurance.

The tipping point is that now I have a wedding to attend next month and I want to not be ashamed to wear something nice. I have no idea if the dermatologist will be able to help and everything I read on their website talks about using peels to get to the lighter, nicer skin.

I hope that something can be done to help me get rid of my nasty armpits so I will be going to the doctor and getting a consultation to see what can be done.

I hope that it is not expensive and can be done quickly so I can have a nice summer.

Tweaking My Eating Plan

Hello Divas!

It has been a while since I posted about my weight management....or really about anything at all but I am now back on track...I think.

I realize that counting calories is not working for me because I have not been able to stick to the calorie count that was suggested for me.

I also just read that generally limiting calories does not work for many people because in the back of your mind you stress about the calories you consume. This leads to increased stress and high stress leads to retention of belly fat.

So by counting my calories I was actually programming my body to store those calories as fat!!!!!

I am going to go on a modified version of the Weight Watchers plan which does not involve me counting ANYTHING.

The latest research from Weight Watchers shows natural fruits and vegetables as FREE foods. This means you can eat as much of them as you want without them counting towards your points. The other foods are the ones that you need to worry about...but I will just focus on eating CLEANER and healthier foods.

So I will be having unlimited
and other such foods!

I plan on eating a few fruits or veggies before my meal and then if I still feel hungry I will have some more.
