Competitve eater no more!

I once thought I could shut down a buffet. Put Kobiashi to shame! I used to joke with my old roommate that I wanted to be a professional competitive eater since apparently I was already in training. Now, let's just say I can hardly, if at all, finish what is on my plate. Slightly disappointing, yes. Completely wonderful, hell yes!!

I still have an infatuation with all things pasta and saucy. Somedays I can't help but be a total carbohydrate whore. They love me when I'm enjoying their starchy goodness, but in no time they leave me hunched over in a bloated state of regret. It's amazing how my body can't hold near as much as it could 3 months ago. Believe me I try to stuff it and am sick after I do! No more experimenting how many trips to the buffet line anymore. I now experiment with vegetables and whole grains.

I had my 17th week weigh in yesterday at Weight Watchers. I am proud to report that I am down 2 lbs this past week. Since May 29, I have relinquished 42.8 lbs. I am only 72.2 lbs away from my goal weight. Sounds like a lot but doesn't 42.8 sound like a lot also?

Let's get this thing started!

I have decided to write this blog to let out some frustrations going on. Life is changing at a rapid pace. The main change, some may say obsession, is my journey to lose 120 lbs. On May 28, 2010 my doctor informed me that I have high blood pressure and the 2o lbs I gained in one year did not help. She basically put the fear of death in me and told me if I didn't get my act together and lose weight I may have a heart attack by the time I am 30. The whole time I thought "geeze lady, all I came in for was birth control..." As she was writing out my prescription for high blood pressure medicine, I started freaking out. Right then and there I made a promise that I was going to get healthy and quit killing myself. Enter Weight Watchers. I started my journey at 282 lbs. Yeah scary number, right?!? I'm not afraid to write it down anymore because it's the truth and I did it to myself. I can say now that I am at 245.2 lbs all thanks to Weight Watchers. I hope to have this blog help me get throught my journey. This is a bumpy road that is very emotional. So strap on your seatbelts and enjoy your ride through my crazy life!
