Why was it so dangerous, you may ask?
At the time I began this blog, I weighed over 300 lbs. Truth be told, I was pushing closer to 400, weighing in at a known peak of 366 pounds in 2009-2010. It very well may have been more than that, but the shame I felt being that morbidly obese generally kept me far from the scale.
When I started this blog, I was literally eating myself to death.

And in the process, I happened to lose 200 pounds.

Considering this drastic change, I thought it fitting to continue with the blog I began primarily to record baking escapades. I have had a number of people in real life ask me how I lost the weight, for tips and tricks, and even for advice. This is a place for me to be real and raw, a proper platform (versus Facebook or some other social media).
It has been a journey of many years, and I have a long story to tell. This is my renaissance post. I plan on a series of posts that will address specific questions to tell my story. If you have any questions of your own, please feel free to comment and I will try to answer them along the way.
Thanks for taking the time to read, and I hope you stick around!
