I have been overweight for as long as I can remember. Food has always been a way for me to cope with every emotion you can think of. It is time to end the cycle that has caused me to be overweight for my entire life.

I want this to be my time to shine. I want to push myself to the limits and see what I can really do. It's time for me to prove to myself that I am more than just a pretty face. I want to feel as good on the outside as I do on the inside.

I am going to show the world that I am done being the "fat girl," and that I am no longer going to settle for the weight I am now. I am stronger than anyone realizes, and it's about time I start believing that.

I refuse to believe that I will always be the biggest one out of my friends and family. I refuse to accept that I will be over 200 pounds for the rest of my life. It is time to come to terms with all of my demons and once and for all show what I am truly made of.

My Program:
I do a combination of a lot of cardio and ST. My new favs:

Circuit Training

I have been working on eating more frequently, and eating MORE. I have found that if I eat consistently every 2-3 hours I keep my metabolism up up up!

I have cut out all white flour and refined sugars for awhile, just to see if I can reset my body. It seems to be working!

Personal Information:
I am from Upstate NY, not to be confused with NYC.... which is what everyone thinks. :) I went to Culinary School in San Francisco, which is where my weight took on a life of it's own. I was there for a little over a year and gained 70 pounds! Hello French food... butter, cream, potatoes and cheese! Which are all so delicious, but not so good for the waistline!

I moved back to NY, where I currently am working with my parents at our family owned bar and grill! Which causes it's own obstacles... I am the only Chef, so I am the one who prepares all the food. I have to constantly be conscious of not snacking and not tasting every little thing.

I have a 2 1/2 year old daughter who keeps me busy all of the time! I am lucky enough to be able to spend the day with her until her daddy comes home and is with her while I am at work. I can't imagine my life without her, and I want to be healthy and fit to be a great role model for her.
