The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Straight from the Woodshed -The Fat Monologue

2nd July 2015 | 0 Comments

Tonight’s the night! I’m going to do my first ever reading of the “Fat Piece” in front of a live audience – ever. I am reading as part of “Story Jam”, a story-telling live music show produced by singer, performer, writer Stephanie Rogers and held at The Wilmette Theater. I’m a bit frightened in an [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Showing Up Is Half The Battle

25th June 2015 | 1 Comment

I didn’t think about it. I knew I had to go. Even as the pain in my back and knee hampered my every move in bed, I got up slowly, cautiously. I thought to myself: “How the Hell am I going to the gym? I can’t even go to the toilet!” In the old days, [...]

Well, I’m back to it again. I have officially decided to get healthy. Only this time I’m getting help and I am accountable to someone. Today marked my first session with a trainer and a fitness team.

12th November 2013 | 2 Comments

I am back at it. I have had so many false starts that I refrained from posting about my latest effort to lose weight. But it’s been several weeks now and after losing 16 pounds I am formally declaring: IT’S ON! I am obese. I am a fat ass bitch and I’m sick of it. [...]

My eating, the Mirror, the scale, video of me performing (Egads!) There is no denying it. I have become a fat bitch again. Don’t despair folks. We obese people can say these things about ourselves. And no matter how many of my dear ones smack my hand or pound the table as they offer their [...]


You Better Carry That Weight

22nd March 2012 | 1 Comment

Weird day today. A friend, a good friend who I’ve known for decades expressed “worry” that I might drop dead from being fat. Actually she said: “I worry about you” and then proceeded to tell me that another friend wanted to do an “intervention” which I later found out was not true. It was handled [...]


Been meaning to write but inexplicably unable to do so

25th May 2011 | 0 Comments

The title of this blog is taken from one of my favorite greeting cards. I wrote a different title back in March, shortly after my last post and saved it as a draft. The title was The Ugly Truth. Just a title no content. It’s probably better that I didn’t post it. I can’t really [...]


People Will Stare.

Venus of Willendorf, 22,000B.C.E One of the great joys of the Spa at Trump – besides the luxury, great staff and amenities – is the fact that the locker room is often empty. It’s huge and there are plenty of places for the modest naked woman to change in complete solitude. I usually show up [...]


The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Starting Over.

8th November 2010 | 3 Comments

I hope the title of this post spells it out for you. I have not been diligent in my quest to change my physical self. I must confess that I have been eating with total abandon, have done no exercise and frankly, I haven’t even given a damn. I have been eating a lot and [...]

She responded: Thanks so much..50 can u believe it!!!! I’m sitting at… hosp waiting for my 3rd radiation treatment..3 down [...]
