So I quit and my husband who never smoked was elated as you could imagine, I
have to say besides having children quitting smoking was the among the most amazing things that I have ever done. It was very tough and I know that at times I was unbearable to be around.
So 2 years later, after the wreckage has been cleaned up, here I am 52 pounds heavier, Dr. B and I saw it with our own four eyes, somehow revealing my weight to him did not sting as much as it has with other doctors. Maybe I am surrendering..not giving up, just ready to take another road. This a new beginning for me, I am 6 months away from being 43, and as of yesterday I was 201.2 pounds, too much for someone barely 5' 2'. Life has a habit of getting away from you and time marches on. The part that is a challenge is that I am a chef and my love affair with food has placed me here. When I was younger I could take off the weight no problem, but it would and has come right back. I have yo-yoed all my life. I really want to get off the merry-go-round. The first step is said to be the hardest and it is. Imagine what a kick-ass chef I could be if I gave the world healthy alternatives. I will still talk about the sinful pleasures in cuisine but I will also offer a healthy counterpart the angel on our shoulder . So lets cook together, Allez Cuisine!!!!
