Well i just got off tour. I had five concerts. I'm super happy with my new photos. I tell you slimming down makes a world of difference in my world. Especially with you tube. Fans always get me in the most worst angles. It's all good though. it comes with the territory. I have 4 more pounds to go to my goal. I gained a couple of pounds i think because of all the plane rides. Or it could have been the cocktail i had at the end of the tour to celebrate. It's amazing how alcohol affects your weight. All in all i feel great. I came home and actually got in my bikini and paraded around the beach in Kihei. That was a big one for me. This is the most amazing product. It really is a miracle. I think it is an absolute miracle for diabetes. Which i think probably over half of my family has on my Hawaiian side. miraclehawaii.com

Just got off tour, Dallas and Oregon. Concerts where fabulous. Fans really noticed a major change in my body. Eating went pretty well. Brought my own for the plane and getting really good at ordering off the menu. I'm really noticing that people kind of get offended if you don't order in a restaurant. I mean people that you are with. Then they tell you all about how there trying to diet.
they say, wow i can't believe you only eat 500 calories a meal. Mean while they need to go take a nap after eating and I'm ready to go. I have really noticed how good it feels not to have sugar in my diet. I've always been afraid of becoming diabetic, because everyone on my Hawaiian side is.
I'm really enjoying using the stevia. I'm telling you i love to eat. If i can do this diet anyone can.
You feel great.

Blogging in today. I've lost a total of 26 pounds. I feel great. A lot of energy. I am mostly noticing weight loss in my shoulders, chest of course, butt, thighs, hands, feet. My feet are still trying to adjust. My poor other half has to lomi my feet everyday. I didn't realize how 26 pounds off would affect my feet. Amazing! I'm really trying hard to focus on my skin. Been very religious about moisturizing. I have worn a few dresses that i have not fit it since pre- baby. Did a really great photo shoot with a fabulous Sue Wong dress that i haven't worn since 1902. But the Mother of all dresses, that is my ultimate goal....... is a Prada dress that is on sale at Barneys New York in Waikele. I saw her from across the room. She was super tiny, black, shinny and backless. I told my publicist Adrian, there is no way i can fit in that dress. He said, try it on, it will be a positive goal. Well it was really, really, really expensive but now on sale. Marked down about 10 times.
I have this very important concert in Los Angeles coming up on Sept 1 in front of people who have never heard hawaiian music. I so want to wear this dress. I can't get the zipper up, but i will. It is so refined, sexy and over the top. Will see. It's a size 8 but European. That means its a 6 American. Wee haa.

Well i haven't blogged in a while. I finished an album and had concerts back to back. Plus moved my parents. This is the first afternoon to myself in a while. I feel great, I weighed in and lost 19 pounds. Plus I lost 20 inches. My feet feel so much better i can't even describe it. My energy is awesome and I'm still on track with my training. I went about 4 days without losing anything. That was a bit frustrating. But i kept at it and dropped another 3 pounds right after that. I find it amazing that i really don't need to eat that much food. I've actually been cooking a lot for my parents and family. It really doesn't bother me. I'm going to try and keep up my blogging.

I lost another 2 pounds. I'm stoked, that's a total of 10 pounds since thursday. I have a lot
more energy. With each pound that i shed i am really focusing on letting go of old baggage.
Over all stress is my goal. Because we are the nurturer's of the world, woman very rarely take time for themselves. Well ladies it is time. Time to huli out the old and bring in healthy new circumstances. Time to be in love with ourselves. This way we will be happy healthier Mother's,
Wives, Girl Friends, Friends, Aunties and Tutu's.
I am still training with my personal trainer, Alwyn Dumaran. We have really been doing a lot of core training. When I gave birth to Madeline i got a hernia. I can't tell you how much better it feels, since i've started shedding pounds. With Alwyn we would wrap my stomach to train, but now i don't need to.

Well i've lost 8 pounds since thursday. I'm still training with my personal trainer, Alwyn Dumaran. He has kept my same work out. I have noticed that my feat are starting to feel a lot better. Because i have luau feet, plus having my daughter, my feet have gone up a whole size.
I am noticing that my frame is starting to smooth out. Like my back, the fat at the top of my Okole. I am staying consistent with the drops. I don't feel weak or hungry at all. My publicist Adrian Kamali`i who is also on this diet is doing great. He has lost 20 pounds. I'm so proud of him.... I am detaching my baggage from the past as i drop the pounds and it feels great.

Well i've lost exactly one pound in a day. I feel good. Getting thru the day was good. I find that if my house is calm, i do a lot better. I have my candles and classical music on. I didn't feel an urge to eat more or cheat. Towards the end of the night, i could have gotten up and eaten a snack, but i just went to sleep. I have a personal trainer, Alwyn Dumaran with Island Muscle Works. On this diet, they don't want you to do more than what you normally do with your work outs. So he has been keeping it the same. We are both interested in the outcome. I am restricted to 500 calories a day. But, i could hardly finish my dinner last night. Timing the drops i need to take was at first a challenge, but i have it down now.

This is my first blog on the way to loosing weight. A very good friend of mine Kristin Jackson came up to me at the Hoku Awards in a beautiful white suit. She looked fabulous, more so she looked free. She had this beautiful glo about her. I said what have you been doing? She said I'll get a hold of you, it's called hCJ. Now, she of all people know that I have a lot of people coming up to me wanting me to endorse things all the time. My Publicist Adrian Kamali`i said call her and try. At least go in and see what its' about. I sat there in the meeting listening to Gabrielle Butchart speak of this product that is hormonally based to help you permanently lose weight. Now the words PERMANENTLY LOSE WEIGHT, rang in my ears for hours after our meeting.
I don't know if anyone reading is like me, but i think i have been on every diet known to man. In the entertainment business it's very important to look fit. Well, after baby came boy did i notice how hard it was to get off the weight. It wasn't just the weight it was having absolutely no time for myself. Because i run my own business from, bookings, touring, lighting, sound, band, albums, composing, concerts to ballet recitals for Madeline, preschool, May Day, Graduation to my personal relationship. Last night i sat reading a chapter in my Deepak Chopra book about Detachment. I thought to myself what better way to start my transformation. Detach myself from baggage. Give myself up to the unknown. Trust the process to transformation. I believe a lot of my weight issue is always taking care of everyone else. I'm not complaining at all. I have just come to the conclusion that it's time for me now. I'm a single Mom. My daughter will always come first but if I'm happy, she is happy. After all i can't keep saying i just had a baby, she's 4 now.
