How this Whole Thing Started…

You know, it’s really hard to put my finger on where it all began.  I’d like to think that there was a time when my weight was under control, but it’s been so long that it’s not really fair to pick a date.

What I do know is that I have a terribly unhealthy relationship with food and have for a long time.  That compounded with quitting smoking 6 years ago and my emotional eating habits, and VOILA! 

I also offer no thanks to cake for its supporting role in all of this.  For years, I worked in a call center.  We celebrated birthdays, babies, weddings, comings, goings, a random Wednesday, all with cake.  So many times, I said “No, Thanks” to the offer of cake, and many times I sat and enjoyed a slice with my comrades. 

So here I am, 33 years old and 5’4″ tall at an unhealthy weight, no thanks to cake.
