Happy Birthday to Me!!!

July 17th 1985…. a skinny, screaming child is born! Flash forward 27 years… a chubby, smiling woman is anticipating Chinese food and cake for her birthday dinner!

Not exactly the way most would start a weight loss blog, but you only turn 27 once, and I have eaten like a Saint all day knowing what was coming this evening. In my family, the birthday girl/boy chooses dinner. And while I am kicking off my weight loss journey today, I refuse to treat this like a last supper!!

I WILL continue to eat amazing food for the rest of my life, I just need to work on giving myself a limit instead of allowing for as much as my tastebuds desire! Damn tastebuds! They have run my life for, well, my whole life. I love food! All kinds, from all places and it has given me nights with great friends, a love of exploration in the kitchen and an extra fifty pounds!

Yup…. I said it out loud! 50 POUNDS!!

Jokes over, it’s time to get rid of the extra weight. For good!

I can’t wait to blog my way through this journey and along the way make some friends, have some laughs and probably shed a tear or two.

I am off to get ready for chicken balls and chowmein! I am going to post some before pictures after dinner tonight!
