I wanted to get some inspiration for this journey, so I bought a bunch of books on Amazon - mostly weight loss memoirs. That's how I discovered the Pasta Queen.
No, she doesn't rule over fettucine and manicotti. She writes an AWESOME blog called, well, PastaQueen. I found out about it because I bought her book, Half Assed.
As the back of her book proclaims, "Think the last 20 pounds are the hardest? Try the last 200." She went from a high of 372 to 180. Very impressive!
In both the book and the blog,she chronicles her weight loss battle with humor and sassiness. Something in the way she writes just resonates with me completely and inspires me to keep going.
