This blog is dedicated to healthy living – focused on food and exercise – watch as I cook my way to maintain my own 105 pound weight loss and help others lose and maintain their weight along the way as well. For the year of 2010 – it is my goal to cook 365 recipes – 200 of which have to be modified recipes, the other 165 can be recipes that are already light. For the 200 regular recipes, my revamps must be lighter in calories and fat, easy for anyone to do, and taste really really really good.
A little about me, my name is Stephanie and I am in my early twenties, I live in Southern California, although my dream would be to live in Washington. Starting at around age 9 I was always the chubby kid, and I had built my identity around my weight. In January of 2008, I was diagnosed with being pre-diabetic, my weight had gotten out of control, and I was now at the crap end of obesity. At this point I weighed 255 pounds. I wasn’t content with my weight, but I really didn’t think that it could ever change. I figured that was just who I was. In June of 2008, I decided that I could make a change, and I decided that there was no better time than the present. I looked to my mom for help, she herself had lost a large amount of weight and I needed to know where to start. She helped me by getting me the tools and the motivation, and with her help and a lot of determination by July of 2009, I had lost 105 pounds. I discovered that I was addicted to food, almost like an alcoholic or a drug abuser. The tough part with being addicted to food, is that unlike drugs or alcohol, you need it to survive. Most people recovering from a substance addiction are told to stay away forever from that substance, not so with food. Instead I had to understand my enemy, and in the process I became fascinated, which is what lead me on the path to become a dietitian.
