My name is Lisa Kahler, I’m 49 years young. I’m a mom, wife, daughter, sister, and most recently I’ve added the title gramz! For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fat. Not chubby, not big boned, not a little overweight. Fat. I don’t remember a time I was at a weight that was healthy or in a body I was comfortable in. I’ve started and stopped my way to almost 300 pounds – each time promising myself success and that I’d never go back. Failure drove the wagon that I continued to fall off.
In January of 2020, I woke up one morning and had enough. Taking a shower was a chore. Tying my shoes – forget it. Buttoning my jeans…what are those? Like I said, enough. I signed up for WW and started doing my thing. I was following the plan and succeeding. But I could feel myself losing steam, getting diet fatigue, and I could not take another failure. This time I decided to examine the areas I seemed to struggle with, and it wasn’t the eating or the exercise (although you will learn I despise exercise) it was self-talk, the mean girl in my head, you know the one I’m talking about. That mean girl has power – had power. It’s not easy, but since that revelation, I’ve been working hard at reprogramming my brain – changing the identity of the person I had convinced myself I was. That, my friends, is what Big Fat Skinny Dish is all about.
