Erin is all that and definitely more. She is a rebel. She is a fighter. She is a mother.
My Story My story, huh? It's probably less interesting to know where I am, right now, than it is to know where I've been. On March 18th,I was fed up. Life was bad, I thought I was diabetic, slowly dying and … was generally a mess.
I sat down, determined to change my life, and wrote a few words to myself about "how I feel". Those words are here: I'm fat, sick, sad, diabetic and it hurts to walk. Oh yeah, life sucks, too! I suggest reading that, before you read much further. Go back and click that link, before you go any further.
None of this matters, if you don't go read that first post. For those that read it, and wondered if I AM diabetic The fact that I thought I was, was probably what saved me. The change to my diet probably prevented it. I visited the doctor after I'd lost about lbs. That was a load off!
How I lost lbs. About Me I'm a non-descript mildly pudgy, late 30's, middle of the road white dude, with random scruffy facial hair and a fear of wild dogs. I would describe myself as intelligent, mostly creative and potentially funny, but I like to cook and I like to play with computers, but … it could be said that I'm not great at either.
I also like to write.
I like to tinker and read. I'm a bit of a Jack of all Trades, but … a Master of None. As children, when asked what they want to be when they grow up, most children say something glamorous like, "Policeman!
That sealed the deal. From that point forward, for Christmas and birthdays, I would get cookbooks, aprons and egg slicers as gifts.
In school, guidance counselors would steer me towards classes involving cooking ie. I won a salad making contest at a young age. I started working in restaurants at about 13 years old. I attended the Culinary Institute of America at 18 years old, determined to be a Chef. During this time, I would build websites for friends and other businesses, as a way to network within the restaurant industry.
Not many chefs could do it. It was a great way to meet and be met! While in Seattle, I was offered an interesting opportunity via a company my father was starting. I don't believe there was a word for it, yet, but … I did it and it was fun!
It was a blend of talking, joking, researching, cooking and explaining cooking techniques to a live radio audience. My on-air personality was named "DJ Foodie". Hence, the name of this website.
Some day, I may post some old shows! From there, I moved to AllRecipes. During my stay at Allrecipes, I focused on increasing the knowledge base of the site. They had a lot of recipes, at the time, but very little "how to" type of information. I helped get more information and created a lot of tips.
I also assisted in adding nutritional analysis to each of their recipes.Breaking news, weather, radar, traffic, sports from FOX 5 DC for Washington, DC, Maryland and northern Virginia - WTTG-TV.
My Story Lyrics: What the fuck's going on? / Hold the door / Hold the door / This is my story (Story) / This is my story / Came from radio, it was late / Left the car, went straight to my gate.
Website Goals This website is intended to keep me focused on my goals. I'd like to go the extra mile and drop at least 30 more lbs. When I was first losing weight, I stalled twice. After my D & C, I spent hours on the internet searching for women who had been through it.
I was desperate to find someone, anyone, who could relate to what I was feeling. Someone to tell me that the depression and hopelessness were normal.
Jan 21, · This is Dungeons and Dragons story from when I played in Adventurer's League. Music Credits: "Casbah Towers", "Invisible Pieces", and "Voyeur" in Youtube Audio Library Airport Lounge - . The story and eventual film helped make the “Erin Brockovich” a household name.
Over time, Erin realized that she could use her notoriety to spread positive messages of personal empowerment and to encourage others to stand up and make a difference.
