Me, as an elephant!

This is a picture of me at my heaviest of 270 pounds. This was taken at my son's 5th birthday party in January 2005. I did lose about 30 pounds after this was taken, but gained 10 back before I started SB this January.
I was a very skinny child, could eat anything! Then in high school, I became anorexic and bulimic. Not healthy, but I looked gorgeous. I was 5'2" and 105 pounds with a D cup when I graduated. Then after graduation, I started putting on the pounds 10 and 20 at a time.
As of last week, I weigh less than my hubby for the first time in at least 10 years! He will catch up eventually, but for now I am revelling in it!
My final goal is 150, and I am giving myself until July 2007 to reach it. I hope to be there before then obviously, but will not rush things. This is the first time in my life I have felt in control of my body. I will continue to eat well, and look forward to the day when I can shop in the regular section of the store again...

Life is a journey, and I am just along for the ride!

Welcome to my world!

I started the SB Diet January 2nd, 2006. I have about 100 pounds to lose, and as of today I am more than 1/4 of the way there! YAY! I have found this way of eating very easy, though having a six year-old that loves all things confectionary has made it difficult at times. But, as my name implies, I am the Kitchen Goddess! I can do anything in the kitchen! I have succeeded in turning my family on to the whole grain side of eating, and they are beginning to see the benefits! My hubby is doing a modified version of SB, so he really has no choice!
I will try to update often, and I will work on getting pictures up of our delicious meals!
