Why Spitfire Strength?
It speaks to me.
According to Merriam-Webster Dictionary, a spitfire is:
A quick-tempered or highly emotional person
This defines me undoubtedly.
Urban Dictionary adds an extra spin that I love, which references a different spitfire, the British dogfighter plane from WWII:
This defines what I want to become.
Now, strength, that is rather self-explanatory.
I already have all of the strength necessary to make this journey.
I will take my life back. I can do this.
You can do it too. You just have to want it bad enough.
I have battled with my weight since I was a teenager.
I went from fit tomboy, to obese teenager, to fit young adult chef, to fat pastry chef, to fit executive chef, to morbidly obese baker, and now I am done. In hindsight, choosing to be a chef, might not have been the wisest choice for me…or maybe I just need to relearn everything that I thought was right.
No more roller coaster.
No more stupid diets.
No more lying to myself that I am not that fat.
I weighed in at 375 pounds on March 10th, 2012.
I have never been heavier.
This ends now.
