Weight loss and maintenance will be a forever endeavor for me. I will always have this tendency to gain weight. That’s such a bummer. That’s one way to look at this, and another would be that I have this terrific opportunity to transform myself. Both are true. My story, my way it’s all up to me.

For me, a well-prepared meal is definitely an extension of love and caring. I am realizing this ritual, cooking and Star Trek is another way to get in touch with those feelings from childhood. I was lucky to have a wonderful mother and I miss her. I guess cooking and listening to Star Trek is a way to get in touch with my past. I highly recommend thinking about what you do and why you do it, this kind of reflection is pretty powerful:
