Hey there! My name is Lisa, and I am easing away from the Optifast plan, and into a more long term plan. See my 11/15/09 Blog for more details.

I have been overweight my entire life. Well from like 2-now. I was actually born premature and weighed like 5 ibs. I wonder what that felt like!? I have tried every reputable diet at least once.

Why is this time different?
I lost my dad suddenly to morbid obesity in January, 2008. Even at the funeral people were looking to me wondering if I was going to be next. I resemble my dad the most, and I am the largest in my family. I was terrified. I started working out and even got a trainer for awhile. Then the loss set in when I relocated from DC back home to NC. I became really depressed and gained all 30 something pounds back and topped out at 310. I regained momentum when I was slapped in the face with the fact that my physical "fabulousity" did not match my resume's "fabulousity".

Why did I choose PigtoChick as my name? "How cruel!"
When I started I told someone it was because I enjoy farm animals, and I compared my personality to that of a domineering pig. I have decided my reasoning is evolving. Right now it has more to do with a physical appearance. Not the mentality. I have never been told in person by anyone that I am sexy. I've always been cute, funny, and sunny. Reminds me of a baby pig. Even their oinks are adorable at that age. Rumor has it I have a fantastic phone voice, and my cheerfulness exudes. I also sound flirtatious when I don't mean to on the phone and in person. It has always amazed me how guys especially fall in love with the voice, but when they meet me in person... they're just friendly.

Call me what you want, but for once, I would LOVE to have my voice match my body. So in time I WILL match my voice. Because I'm not going to start smoking to age myself! :)

I hope I have put some positive light to my name, and no one will be disappointed anymore. It's a good thing! It's a GREAT thing!

    20 Facts About Pineapples

    No, It’s NOT National Pineapple Day . . . I just thought I would share with you some information on Pineapples!

    Pineapple Facts:
    * The pineapple is native to Brazil and Paraguay.
    * The first written record of the word "pineapple" in English was in 1398 and it was used to refer to a pine cone. It comes from the Spanish word for pine cone, "piña."
    * Christopher Columbus found pineapples on the Caribbean island of Guadalupe in 1493 and took them back to Spain. The Spanish used the word for pine cone ("piña") for them because they resembled pine cones.
    * After Columbus introduced them to Spain, pineapples became popular among sailors as protection against scurvy.
    * The first pineapple arrived in England in 1660.
    * In 1694, the term "pine cone" was created to refer to pine cones instead of "pineapple" in order to allow pineapples the sole use of the word.
    * The Spanish introduced the first pineapples to Hawaii. The state is now one of the top pineapple producers in the world, producing one third of the world's pineapple crop and 60 percent of the world's canned pineapple.
    * "Hala kahiki" is the Hawaiian word for pineapple. When Hawaiians first saw the pineapple, they thought it resembled the Hawaiian Hala, so they named it "hala kahiki," meaning "foreign Hala."
    * "The Pineapple King," James Dole, started his first pineapple plantation in Wahiawa, Hawaii in 1900 and opened his first cannery in 1901.
    * In 1911, Henry Ginaca invented the Ginaca machine that could peel and core 35 pineapples per minute, making canned pineapple much easier to produce. Before this, each pineapple had to be peeled and cored by hand. Because of this invention, Dole's pineapple canning business exploded and other pineapple canneries soon adopted the machine.
    * In 2005, 212,000 tones of pineapples were produced in Hawaii.
    * The Maui Pineapple Company is Hawaii's biggest pineapple producer. They began operations in Maui in 1909.
    * Del Monte began producing pineapples in Oahu in 1917.
    * In 2006, Del Monte announced that it would cease pineapple production in Oahu by the end of 2008 because they can produce it much cheaper in other parts of the world.
    * Del Monte began growing pineapple in Oahu in 1917.
    * The most popular pineapple sold in the United States is the Smooth Cayenne. The other three varieties sold in the United States are the Red Spanish, the Sugar Loaf, and the Golden Supreme.
    * Pineapples take about 18 months to grow.
    * One cup of pineapple has about 135 calories and 33% of the RDA of Vitamin C.
    * A pineapple is ripe if one of its top leaves can easily be pulled out.
    * You can't put fresh pineapple in Jell-O because the bromelain content prevents gelatin from setting. Canned pineapple, on the other hand, can be added to Jell-O because the canning process destroys the bromelain.
