Must See TV

I don't even know if the Today Show is on the network that uses that slogan but you have to mark your calendars for Sunday, May 11th - it really is a must see. In case you missed her most recent post, Pasta Queen will be making a guest appearance on the Today Show this Sunday. As you probably already know, Jennette Fulda a/k/a Pasta Queen is the author of the extremely popular blog Half of Me. Jennette has lost more than half her weight, recently completed a half marathon and is a published author of Half-Assed: A Weight-Loss Memoir. I just ordered my very own autographed copy of her book and you should too.

I can say "I knew her when ...." When I first started reading her blog she weighed over 350 pounds but you wouldn't know it looking at her now. What an amazing transformation! You can even have fun spinning her round and round on her progress photos.

There are so many woman like Jennette who have been through this struggle, overcame obstacles and sabotagers, resisted temptation, got off the couch, made it through the highs and lows, kept at it when the numbers on the scale wouldn't budge, got healthy, stuck with it and succeeded in breaking through to the other side. It makes me believe I can get there (and stay there) too. I just keep telling myself it will happen, I need to think positive, make each and every decision work, keep making one good decision after another and, most importantly, never give up.

Check your local listings for the Today Show and don't miss it no matter what your mother wants you to do that day.

Congrats to Pasta Queen! I hope she makes a ton of money in book sales and enjoys every minute of her success. Thanks to Pasta Queen for showing us all how to be a weight loss success story.
