"I've been heavy-set my entire life. I was the largest of three sisters.
I was always active, but I ate fast food like no tomorrow and never realized how big I was getting.
By the time I was a senior in high school, I was wearing a size 18.
But I was "Cute?? As they say. LOL
"I never really took my weight seriously. People would tell me, "You're too cute to be chunky'," but I took it as a compliment and kept eating my double cheeseburgers.
"I'm doing comedy! I'm getting noticed as a REAL COMEDIAN!!!
it wasn't until I started performing on stage that I realized people are right up on you -- they see everything. While I was telling jokes, I was always pulling down my shirt so people wouldn't see my stomach.
"I was going on road trips with big names in the business! Traveling for free! five-star hotels. Livin' the GOOD LIFE! But then here's the problem -- I was done performing about 12-a.m. By then I was hungry. What's open that late? Fast food was often the only choice.

‘Like any GAME, you need to know what SIDE you’re playing.
Don’t ASSUME anything and then wake-up and find out you’re not even on the TEAM!’
I don’t care...
How many gifts he’s bought you…
How many times you go to dinner/movies…
How many times he’s spent the night over your house…
How many times he walked out the bathroom with a towel on…
UNLESS he literally TELLS you (from his mouth)
how he feels about you in the way YOU want to hear it…
you mean NOTHING more to him then what he sees;
and it will never change. So get the fuck over it!!!

I did this almost every weekend for two years, which easily added 30 to 40 pounds to my already-chunky frame. But I still felt cute. I'll never forget that night -- it was about 2:20 a.m. and BET COMIC VIEW aired and guess who I saw on TV... Me!
I was sitting in my Plush Hotel room, eating three Chalupas from Taco Bell. I had to put my food down to really look at myself. The crowd was laughing, but I wasn't -- I looked like I weighed 3000 damn pounds. TV already adds 10 ADDITIONAL pounds, but I was so heavy I think I saw smoke coming from my thighs from rubbing together walking across that stage.
For the first time in my life, I was disgusted with myself and at that, I decided I needed to do something about my weight. (of course I took two more bites out that Chalupa before I threw it in the garbage)
When I arrived back into Chicago, I went straight home and dumped everything THAT I KNEW I HAD NO BUSINESS EATING from my refrigerator and cabinets. I made up my mind: Food is not going to kill me!. And my weight loss Journey began!
