The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: A Confession About Me & Food and What I’m Gonna Do About It.

17th December 2015 | 1 Comment

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 [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: The Good Pain of Working Out.

2nd December 2015 | 2 Comments

Every muscle in my body aches. That was my cry to a cousin the day after a very strenuous weight training workout with Trainer Jeremy. She became concerned: “Don’t do too much. You could hurt yourself.” I quickly explained that I have entrusted my training to a wonderful professional and the key to building strength [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: France, July 2015, Heat, Pain, Endurance and how I got through it!

26th August 2015 | 0 Comments

Time to get real with you. The Chateau de Blandy Les Tour was wonderful. The Opera “Don’t Worry, Be HaRpy” was gorgeous and a great collaboration. I don’t want to sound like a whiner but my last trip to France was tough! Heat, exhaustion, knee pain and obesity made it a real test of endurance [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Performing the Fat Piece

21st July 2015 | 0 Comments

It’s been a couple of weeks since the evening in which I performed a reading of the Fat piece from my solo show. I was nervous, I was uncertain. It had only been a fantasy for so long, a work in progress, my biggest obstacle in the long running marathon to complete my solo show. [...]

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, [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Feel The Burn And Don’t Throw Up!

20th May 2015 | 0 Comments

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times. That is one way to describe my session today with Trainer Jeremy. This is the first time in nearly seven weeks that I actually want to say: I have to stop! I can’t do this one anymore! But I don’t say it and [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: In the Groove, Feeling the Positive Effects of Moving My Body.

13th May 2015 | 2 Comments

I’m in the groove. Six weeks of fitness and there’s no sign of me stopping yet. I have been hauling my ass to The Spa at Trump every week, for one hour, three times a week of intense fitness training – intense for a fat broad who hadn’t moved her keister in about six years! [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Eating and Moving and the Fear of Knee Pain.

27th April 2015 | 0 Comments

I am committed to making this work. But I am afraid that my knee pain will kick in and make this activity a living Hell. My new relationship with fitness is a month old. If this was a love affair I would be cautious. I wouldn’t call it a “real relationship” yet. I would wait [...]


The Adventures of Permanent Lifestyle Change Girl: Do I Have To Go?

17th April 2015 | 0 Comments

Good morning! I have to go to the gym. I have no choice, I have an appointment and someone who believes in me is paying for it. This is a good thing or I sure would be keeping my sorry ass in the bed this morning. It was a late night. No, I wasn’t partying! [...]
