Senioritis: Class of 2020 — Sammicakes

Only five full days of school have passed by and I’ve already been hit with the dreaded (inevitable) Senioritis. I would say that I’m surprised—since I have been heavily motivated and hardworking throughout my entire school career—but that would be a hilarious lie. Junior year was a complete wreck, an onslaught of projects and extra […]

It’s My Fault He Cheated

This Particular Friday In September wasn’t different from any other Friday. I walked in, ready to begin our session. She is prepared to take her life back, and losing weight will give her the confidence that she needs to do so. We started off talking and catching up on how her morning was, making a list of what she ate the day before and making sure she took in enough calories.

Chicken Noodle Soup For My Birthday

Yesterday was my birthday, and I couldn’t have asked for a better day. Being greeted with love from my family is more than I could’ve asked for. You see that 3 layer cake below.

Being A Mom Is Easy… Says NO ONE​

 

She is laying in bed half awake and half brain dead. She can’t help but wonder where the night went. Her legs are a little swollen, feet are sensitive to touch, hair feels greasy like it hasn’t been washed in weeks. When she felt her face, she could tell that her bags were back more prominent than ever. She couldn’t help but to look up at the ceiling and say, “do I have to repeat this schedule again.” Read More

The Day I Discovered My Droopy Ass

Why Jesus!!! Here I am about to go on vacation and trying on clothes to wear. Sad to say that I never noticed how much my body type had changed. I mean yes, at this point I have lost almost all my baby weight, and the scale is looking good, but then I turned around and there it was dropping and almost scrapping the ground. Why is this happening, and how can it be fixed? Read More
