I’m a blogger. What does that mean exactly? Honestly, I’m not sure. I’m a gal who always has loved to write, once I started my weight loss and self-transformation journey I decided to share it. My blog posts are inspired by everyday life. Sometimes I think of a blog post and it sits in my mental queue for a while or sometimes it’s an immediate post. Today, I’ve got some heavy thoughts on my mind and they’ll make for some good blog posts, but it’s Friday and I don’t want to end the week on such a heavy note. So I’ve decided to blog about this and that:

Lunch time surprise! The folks who print my cookbooks at Lazerquick have been awesome. So I’m going to spread my love today by preparing them a wholesome lunch. Fresh Tomato Soup, Mozzarella and Pesto Paninis, and an apple and tangelo fruit bowl sprinkled with coconut flakes. My friends at New Seasons kindly provided all the food packaging. The way to a persons heart is through their stomach. Oh, who am I kidding I already have their hearts — this lunch will just finish them off. Ha ha. Seriously, I want to foster relationships and if I have something to give than I’m gonna give it.

What’s meant to be I had an offer on the table to host cooking classes at a new venue and it didn’t work out. While I was honored to be considered, I’m not hanging my head because I never felt like the environment was the right fit. Besides, I’ve come to know — what’s for me is for me.The very same day…

Greatest Honor to date my convenient little cookbook Bringing Cooking Back received a dewey decimal number — 641.563 MOSLEY. Yay!

Announcing…A new venue proud to announce I’ll be teaching classes at Cascade Athletic Club – Fisher’s Landing — Tuesday, February 21st for members only at this time. Weight Loss and Healthy Lifestyle 101 class with Chrisetta. Looking forward to the partnership and exciting opportunity to connect with members of the community.

I love my life. I feel so very fortunate and grateful to do all things I love to do. I’m living my dream everyday and that includes blogging about this and that! Happy Friday!

I am a product – and now a survivor – of childhood obesity. As a child, my family always told me that my extra weight was merely baby fat and I’d eventually grow out of it. I never did. Instead, my childhood is filled with memories of not being able to ride a bike, flattening its training wheels from being over the recommended weight, and avoiding P.E. classes by any means necessary. For years, I wore my fatness like a wounded soldier wears a Purple Heart - with pride. I owned the look. I dressed it up. I worked the room. There wasn't a skinny girl who intimidated me. I made sure my hair was laid just right. Nails polished. Outfits coordinated to the tee. Accessories to compliment every outfit. But everyone has a breaking point, and mine came in the spring of 2004 when I tipped the scale at nearly 400 pounds 388 to be exact. I was MISERABLE trapped inside of that body. I no longer wore my Purple Heart with pride. Rather, I was ashamed and frightened. Ashamed that I had allowed food to become my everything – frightened I would die because of it. Drastic times called for drastic measures... Today, I’m bound and determined to live a better, healthier, active lifestyle. I realize I’m no longer a passenger in my life, I’m the driver. I’m overcoming my inhibitions and I’m slowly but surely saying farewell to my old childhood nemesis, obesity. For once and for all, Farewell Fatso!
