HI There!

Im Angie and Im a food addict. I love food, sweets, carbs, savory, just food. It seems to like me too, because it holds onto me for dear life! Im a chef, by trade, and its so hard to be around food sometimes when I love it so much but it is a career that I was born to have!

Ive had shoulder surgery on March 1st of this year and since then, with the pain, Ive done no exercise, not much of anything but sitting around and of course eating. Ive gained 20 lbs in a month!! I feel bloated, icky and very miserable.

I just want to be a real person one day. I recently saw the Jenny Craig commercial, you know...the one with Mariah Carey(god bless that girl for having twins and looking phenominal) and a couple other women and the one woman, among other things, says " I didnt even know myself in that body and Its hard to love someone you dont even know"

How true those words ring in my head and how true they are with me. Its odd...I know that this isnt me. This isnt the body that goes with this spirit and mind and yet I just dont know how to get the body that matches. I need help...LOTS OF HELP! Help learning how to live to eat, not eat to live. Learn how to exercise and take better care of myself and to learn to drop these pounds so that I look the way I am supposed to look.

Im putting together a chain of red and white beads. The red symbolize 5 lbs lost and the white is 25 lbs lost. At the end of the weight loss part of my journey, I should have 17 red beads and 5 White Beads .When its all done, I will hang this chain in a Shadow Box Where I can Always See It!!
