Good Morning,
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.


  1. I just love it. I think your story will give power to so many women - especially those that put everything else before themselves. Love you!

  2. I, like most people that know you, think you are absolutely STUNNING, both inside and out. There is nothing more beautiful than a strong, smart, powerful Hawaiian woman! But I'm all for supporting your journey. (unless of course this plan calls for a hiatus on drinking...I will have to rethink ;) Thank you for sharing your story with all of us! p.s. I miss your 'okole. Both of you :(

  3. Aloha Amy, I just read you story in the Midweek and saw that you had a hernia from giving birth. I too have a hernia and it is very uncomfortable. My stomach bloats very fast when I just take a couple of bites to eat. UGH!!!! It has gotten so frustrating. I look forward to reading the rest of your weight loss stories. Thank you for sharing you journey with me. Aloha and God Bless.
