Recapturing my love of good food, reconnecting with the satisfaction of preparing and enjoying meals created from quality ingredients.

No More Industrial Food. No processed "diet" food! This is a journey of pleasure, not deprivation.

At heart I am a "foodie" who lost her way and became mired in "convenience" and fast food. I take great interest in local agriculture, sustainable food production, and food policy issues. Somehow I managed to sideline these values for awhile while i fed from the Big Food machine... but I'm back and it is my devoted mission to have a cupboard devoid of prepackaged foods and a fridge full of freshness... To emphasize locally grown, quality over quantity, and pleasure in every bite.

I lost 55# once before (1999/2000 on Weight Watchers), and kept most of it off for several years. Somewhere in 2008/2009, I began a disastrous re-gain of the rest of that weight and lots, lots more. Disappointing, but I can fix this.

Overall Goal:
Reach a "Normal" BMI (154# or less, or 91+ pounds lost)

Interim Weight Goals:
*One-derland (46# down)
*Move from 'obese' to 'overweight' (at 185, or 60# down)
*Buy something not "Plus Size"

I just read a reply to a thread on comfort food eating you wrote. You are so right in not eating Cheetos, but spend a little for artisan cheese and have a little wine. Such a nice treat and makes us feel pampered. I love good, healthy food and enjoy cooking. I guess I can say I am a foodie to.

Thanks so much for dropping by and commenting on my blog. I have to admit that the even "100" definitely played a part in my choosing to throw the 140 on my ticker!

My main issue is that, left to my own choices, I'd still be happy and active back up around 220! I'm already "just fine" in my own head, and my surgeon's insistence that I keep going (but without a definite number) just has me floundering. I know that I'm going to have a tough time wrapping my head around the idea of dropping back in to weight-loss mode after a month of "maintenance" after the surgery, so I figured that if I had a reasonable "goal" to shoot for, then it would at least give me reason, ya know? Now I just have to figure out just what the heck is "reasonable"!

I absolutely agree that there is no reason to go below the top end of the "healthy" range, but I do want to give myself some room to put muscle back on. I've lost far too much of that while sick, and need to put back at least 10 lbs worth over the year or two after the surgery.

And now that I've re-read your comments, and written this here, I guess that I pretty much have my "goal": get down to around the 150ish and then in to muscle-gain mode.

Thank you!

Oh - and there are a lot of us who miss your blogs!

Strong thoughts and best wishes to you and yours!
