Losing Kat...

I'm Kat. I'm a single mom. I am a medical coder during the day, and I teach medical coding at night. I joined Sparkpeople and lost a lot of weight - got down to 135 lbs...and then gave up. I'm starting over...again!

I love dogs, but I am passionate about collies. We raise and show smooth and rough collies. I love to read, and I devour books. I am devoted to my daughter and family. I am highly motivated to reach my goal weight...but also to learn how to maintain the weight ...

Hi Kat,

I read your blog today and truly feel for you. It was 7 below zero yesterday and living in a home that is not heated can be very difficult. I applaud your efforts to keep going under these circumstances. I am also very inspired by your page and your weight loss. I am 1 week into my new journey and began my weight loss at 210 and am now 206. To see your number at 167 on your way to your goal is very inspiring. I truly hope to attain that weight within the year.

God Bless you and your precious brood of collies today!!

Grateful to have met you,

Andi

Hi Kat! Thanks for stopping by the 'bath' blog - the beasties all appreciated your admiration of their furry little selves.

Oddly enough though that was an older bath tale, they were all in the tub again the day before you saw it. Meaganne and I DO love to torture them, or so they think.

Hope you had a lovely Halloween - we had torrential rain and heavy winds here. The poor Trick or Treaters were pretty much all soaked to the skin.
