I have been working out with a trainer since April 2, 2015. It’s been a big commitment and I feel stronger and active. I weigh 300 Lbs so it has been no small feat to keep this body moving and I have lost weight BUT before anyone starts patting me on the back I have [...]

23rd May 2015 | 0 Comments

I’ve been up for ages this morning writing the hardest piece ever for my show. It has always been the one story that I knew I had to tell yet the most difficult to complete. The topic of weight is so multifaceted for me. There are so many approaches I can take. Every time I [...]

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. [...]

Oops. My bad. On March 22 I posted about my plans to get into shape for my NYC club debut at City Winery NY on July 2.  I must be accountable, even if it is to cyberspace.  And now it’s time to check in.   I worked at it.   Lost quite a few pounds [...]

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 [...]

Weird day today. A friend, a good friend who I’ve known for decades expressed “worry” that I might drop dead from being fat.

It’s been so damn long since I blogged on here that I almost forgot how to use the dang software! Good news: I was asked again to join the cast of Tony Fitzpatrick’s final installment of the trilogy of his one man shows at Steppenwolfe Garage. The 2011 show “Stations Lost” got rave reviews and [...]


The Amazing Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Back at it.

4th February 2011 | 2 Comments

Missing In Action. That’s what they’ll say about me at the gym. I have fallen off the wagon. Oops! I wish I could blame it on “The Knee Chronicles” but I hopped off the ole’ girl awhile before that. However, I am not discouraged. I figure as long as I am still living, I can [...]


The Knee Chronicles: Wait & See & T.C.O.B.

31st January 2011 | 3 Comments

I had an “Arthritis Flare.” It was my very first and it was awful, horrible, debilitating and sudden, like BAM! I have been dealing with knee pain for awhile now but nothing like this. This experience taught me a lot. Shit happens to the body and I can neither control it, nor will it away. [...]
