I like sugar. I’m a trained Pastry Chef, naturally I like sugar. I enjoy creating delicious treats, eating them and then sharing them with others. I get off on making people’s taste buds happy. Oh, another food blog you say…. oh goody. Wrong! This is not a blog about my obsession with sugar, this is a blog about where sugar and a good bit of laziness has gotten me. This is a blog about my journey to lose 30 pounds by my 30th birthday- which happens to be in about 47 weeks- but who’s counting. ( Oh great, another weight loss blog you say. well tough titties- if you don’t like it, don’t read it)
I gained the freshman 15 twice in culinary school. Twice! That is obscene. I cringe every time I think of it. So I have spent the last 10 or so years trying to do something about it. There have been some successes and many a failure. I’ve always know I had a “few pounds to lose” but overall, I felt like I still had it going on. But all that is about to change. I am about to be 30! T-H-I-R-T-YYYYYY!!!!!! The big 20/10. And there is no more sugar coating it. I am over weight and over it. There are hopefully, another 50+ years left in this body and I don’t want my weight to effect the quality of life I hope to have. I no longer want to feel pudgy and uncomfortable in my clothes, or to avoid having pictures taken of me, because I’m having a “fat day”. I want to feel sexy for my man again. I want to be in great shape when I get married and be a healthy strong role model for any future offspring I might pop out. I want to be comfortable in my own skin just for me. And I’m going to be honest. I am not going to cut out the sugar. Maybe a little, but not all of it. That would be just be craaaaaaaazy.
So here we go, you and I, on this journey. I can do it for sure. I just need a little motivation and support. And a scale.
