I’m Back


Okay, Okay so I’ve been on a little Hiatus.

2012 was such a busy year for me. I had a big promotion at work which took up a big part of my life. My parents moved to the west coast which means my babysitter is gone. On top of that I was pregnant for 42 weeks. Yes I am now a mother of 2. Which I still can’t believe. Our Daughter was 5 when I found out God was going to bless us with another one. Mister and I both was happy to be expecting, but wasn’t looking forward to what came along with a new born. We just started to enjoy our SLEEP!! If you are a parent you know what I’m talking about. We are in our 30’s now so we are old if you ask us. Forget that “YOUR AS OLD AS YOU FEEL” kids  suck up your youth at any age you are.

On July 17, 2012 at 8:24am, after 14 blissful [more like exhausting and painful] long hours of labor out came Nicholas Zaiden aka Mister Jr! It was such a wonderful moment for me. I had tears of joy for 2 reasons. The 1st being we just had a healthy baby Boy and 2nd I was FREE. I wanted to shout FREE AT LAST, FREE AT LAST!  I was so happy I wasn’t pregnant anymore. I was even more ecstatic because he was Mister and I last baby.  We are done. I don’t have to do this again[I’m getting watery eyed now]. Two was are magic number. We have are Girl and Boy. The shop is CLOSED, GONE OUT OF BUSINESS!!!

I can finally get my body in shape. I’ve been dreaming about this day ever since I started gaining weight. I’m past 30 so it will be a lot harder to get a video VIXENS body [lbvs], but I’m determined and committed to my goal. I started my weight loss journey on July 18th the day after NJ was born. I’ve set my half way goal date for March 10, 2013. Which is my birthday.

I’ve told Mister of my goal to have a video VIXENS body and of course he just looked at me smiled and said Okay Baby. Translation “Yeah Sure, Okay, What Ever You say. You will lose some weight but not enough to have a video VIXENS body” I know that’s what he meant when he said Okay Baby.

So far I’ve lose 64lbs. Which a lot of that was the baby weight. I have a long way to go. I just have to keep reminding myself ONE POUND AT A TIME.

So at this time let me close out this post by asking if you could bow your head and say a pray for me. Asking God to give me strength on my long weight loss journey[lol]…


  1. Congrats on your new bundle of joy!! Being a mom of 2 will for sure keep you busy. I have two girls and they are 6 years apart so I totally understand.

  2. Thanks Renae...So far they keep Mister and I busy. The baby is crawling now and he is all over the place..SMH..

  3. NJ is the perfect addition to the Spann Clan. Now onto the next journey of your life.
