A more honest shot of my current weight (obese)

My new starting point, around 245. Out with Dolly, and she's now the skinny one!

Me, 4 years ago, at 142 lbs, my goal weight. Where I want to get.

I have 20 pics in my gallery


Kat's Journey back to Skinny

My daughter used to tell me I was skinny (even when I really wasn't), but now, she says I'm fat (which I am). I want her to see me as I once was, a thin, fun, energetic mom who had confidence and self esteem. It has taken me 5 years to gain this weight--I want it off, no matter how long it takes!!! Wish me luck.

My Goals:
Lose 100 pounds in the next few years...I don't care how long it takes, as long as I get it done! It took 5 years to gain, maybe i can get it off in less!

My Program:
Starting here, with some cardio and strength, and some accountability. For me, consistency and motivation are key. Doing well now for a while, and I WILL KEEP GOING!!!

Personal Information:
I am a married mother of two whose total satisfaction with life and family has lead me to total dissatisfaction with my weight. I eat when I am happy, which is all the time. I want to separate my eating from my feelings. I want to get more active. I want to be back to my pre-marriage weight!

Other Information:
Very liberal, love my family, love to read, love to shop for clothes (in continually smaller sizes!)

emoticon Greetings and emoticon

Congratulations on getting your AA - wow, that is quite an accomplishment!! I'm sure your success there can be applied to SP and changing your lifestyle so maybe your past is just that - past, as in over!

I'm glad you're getting active with SparkPeople - it's a great community, wonderful resources and fantastic support.

In my experience, SparkPeople is like a emoticon in some ways - it's lots of fun and easy to make friends because we're all in this together. I like the way a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE is emphasized instead of a 'quick fix wonder diet' - it's about waaaaaay more than 'just' losing weight so you have definitely come to the right place!


If you ever need any help using features of the site, there are tutorial videos under the HELP section that can show you how to use the features of the site. You can also find them on the START page and several other places on the site.


If you haven't discovered The Spark book and/or the SparkDiet linked at the bottom of the START page, check them out - the program is simple but extremely effective. There is a TON of information on this site - so much it might even seem overwhelming but fortunately we don't have to 'digest' everything at once! The FastBreak program is a good way to start.


Another nice thing about SparkPeople is that we have permission to be human - we don't have to change everything at once or be in a hurry to reach our goals. Take a few baby steps and then a few more and before you know it, you'll have completed a long journey - I hope you enjoy this community as much as I do - it teaches us how to make positive lifetime changes because that's the only thing that will work over time!
