The Real Women of Philadelphia - I'm in the News!

This contest is getting more and more exciting!

Not only have I had an opportunity to conjure up amazing things in front of the camera using Philadelphia Cream Cheese, one of our local papers has run a story about the contest and a reporter is coming from Shaw Cable next week to film me cooking in my kitchen!

Note to self: When you make resolutions to step out of your comfort zone, make sure to be prepared for what the universe might be dishing up!

So here's a bit of an update for those of you who have been following along.

On the diet and exercise front things couldn't be going better - despite the fact that I posted a blog about food addictions the other day and nearly gave my mother Aurora a heart attack - I talked her down by explaining it was an old blog - to which she said, "Well you better let people know that or they will think you gave up."

Have I mentioned I love having my mother as my biggest fan?

The reality is that I just reached the 25 pound mark on my weight loss journey and am still going on strong.

I'm also thinking about what other kinds of adventures I can get myself mixed up in - food or otherwise -  feeling like the sky is the limit in life when you finally get willing to take a bite out of things and take some chances.

Here's a link to the article if anyone would like to give it a read: In the News!


  1. You are amazing, in so many ways! Congrats and again, I am totally routing for you!

  2. I'm with Suzie, you ARE amazing! Congrats on all of the exciting things that have been happening in your life, and your new svelte figure! I don't think they have a replacement for Oprah yet, are you available? ;-)
