Maui Mami and the ohana

As a mom of 8 kids, at 40 I didn’t think I would wear a size 9 ever again.

Aloha, welcome! Thank you for choosing to get to know me a little more. Let me begin with my first name, Dyahnee, it means deer but you can call me: d. My last name, Goosby, is from my husband and we’re sure it’s a derivative of Goolsby, changed when his people first came to the US.  I have been married for 17 years and we have 8 children whose ages span from 26 to 9. I grew up, for the most part, in Hawaii where I also met my husband and all of our children have been born.  We live on the north shore of the beautiful island of Maui.  ohana holiday 17


Me in a nutshell: I love nature, my family and I love the Lord Jesus.  I believe as a human race we were born in a garden and if we eat as such, we will be healthier. I believe if we are out in nature having fun and exercising, we will be healthier. I also believe if we put aside our pride and allow others to help us, we help others and heal our communities.  I try to get out in the community and participate in different things from awareness events to the regular after regatta celebration.  I enjoy having fun and really enjoy others who do as well.

There was a time when I was strict on my diet and then as life happened and babies happened and laziness happened, I became way less strict on my diet. I went from being almost vegan at 16 to eating at burgers at fast food restaurants.  I thought all was lost when I was almost 300 pounds and almost 40 years old.  There were other plans for me in the universe though and I met a friend who introduced me to Purium, which is really helping to change my life.

I hope you will add me on your favorite social network so we can connect and get to know each other more.  If there is anything about me you don’t like, I ask you to please offer me only constructive criticism in a positive package or kindly move along.  I really don’t want or choose to engage in negative drama.
