About Me

30 Comments | October 21, 2012

Hi all! My name is Jane Pace. I started BONAPPETITMOM, because I am at a point in my life where I feel credible enough to do so. I have battled with weight loss all my life. I was a very heavy teenager. I lost a lot of weight during my college years.  I was going to be a history teacher, but  at the suggestion of my parents I switched my major to food and nutrition. I graduated from Queens College in 1979 with a double BS in nutrition and history. I worked for three years in Florida in the institutional end and to be perfectly honest, I really did not like it.  I moved back to NY and I went to Queens College for my masters in nutrition education. In my twenties I was up and down like a yo-yo.  When I began teaching I was heavy and then I lost weight again.  During my pregnancy I gained 70 lbs. After my child was born I lost half of the weight. I maintained it up until my thyroid went off the chart and put on 40 lbs. When my thyroid was in remission I lost some of the weight. However a few years down the road, my thyroid went out of remission and menopause kicked in at the same time and I gained everything back. Being a size 18 would not have been a good time to do this . In 2008 my thyroid went into remission and I was able to lose weight. With a good diet and new strategies I lost 75 lbs. in two years. It is now 2012 and I am still the same.  I feel credible now to go and talk about good nutrition. I battle everyday to keep my weight off.  Some days better, a few slips here and there but manageable.  As I needed to by clothes, I shopped small and on clearance, because I am waiting for my thyroid to go out of remission and the weight to creep back. I am thankfully still thin, and I feel great. I want to share my knowledge of good nutrition. I have kept up on the changing world of nutrition, because it has changed so much. I have an open mind and various ways to show people how to lose weight and maintain it.

    I must say, as substantially as I enjoyed reading what you had to say, I couldnt help but lose interest after a while. Its as if you had a good grasp on the subject matter, but you forgot to include your readers. Perhaps you should think about this from much more than one angle. Or maybe you shouldnt generalise so considerably. Its better if you think about what others may have to say instead of just going for a gut reaction to the subject. Think about adjusting your very own believed process and giving others who may read this the benefit of the doubt.

      Thank you for the feedback. You gave me food to think on. You are correct, I must bring my readers into the blogs. It is not only important to give information to my readers, but to make them feel part of my website.

    I could understand the first part of what you were saying but I got a bit lost towards the end. This is a difficult subject to understand

      Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. You are correct. Weight issues are very hard to understand since there are many components that weigh in to weight gain and weight loss.

    A really fascinating read, I may possibly well not agree completely, but you do make some quite legitimate factors.

    Good morning! I am working on an article for Everydayhealth.com (29 million readers monthly!) about getting the right treatment for hypothyroid. I was hoping you would share some of your experiences and tips for getting the best treatment and/or finding a doctor you like to work with, with me. Unfortunately my deadline is tomorrow – but if we could email or speak today or tomorrow, I’d appreciate it. Your blog will be mentioned, of course!
