On my way...

Hi, I'm Kate :) I'm a 23 year old that's struggled with my weight for years. I can't seem to keep myself motivated. I go through phases of being on track and eating well and exercising everyday, and then the phase will end and I'll end up stuffing my face every chance I get. I have trouble with eating late at night and eating because I'm bored. I want to find my healthy happy medium and lose the extra weight I've gained back and stop the yoyo nonsense.

Hi, I'm Kate :) I'm a 23 year old that's struggled with my weight for years. I can't seem to keep myself motivated. I go through phases of being on track and eating well and exercising everyday, and then the phase will end and I'll end up stuffing my face every chance I get. I have trouble with eating late at night and eating because I'm bored. I want to find my healthy happy medium and lose the extra weight I've gained back and stop the yoyo nonsense.

I've tried a lot of different methods to lose weight and spent a lot of money that I could definitely use now... unfortunately. I know that it all pretty much boils down to calories in vs calories out. A huge goal for me is running. I've always hated running and told myself I just wasn't a runner, but I want to learn to love it. Here on spark I read about all of the people that use running as their method of escape and time for themselves, I want that, need that, and crave that escape/freedom feeling!

I work in the critical care unit at a small hospital and although my job is sometimes very stressful and the hours are long (we work 12 hour shifts with a 30 min lunch break)... I absolutely LOVE it. I love getting to meet new people and hear all of the different stories that they bring along with them. I also love the team that I work with.

I enjoy hiking, sports, and being outdoors. Obviously, being from California, I adore the ocean. The ocean is where my zen lives :)
