This was the thinnest I have been in my adult life and it felt GREAT! I'm going back! (Oahu)

This is the time, this is the moment, today is the day.

My name is Kate, I'm 26, I live in Tennessee. I am married to the man of my dreams and we have a beautiful baby daughter. I love camping, hiking, swimming, and kayaking, horse back riding and most other outdoor activities. Of course I don't get to do much of that with Little Bit in tow. Before I got pregnant I lost about 40 pounds, mostly so I would be able to get pregnant. During pregnancy I gained 50 pounds. I lost about 30 after Little Bit's arrival without doing much except breastfeeding ...

Before I got pregnant I lost about 40 pounds, mostly so I would be able to get pregnant. During pregnancy I gained 50 pounds. I lost about 30 after Little Bit's arrival without doing much except breastfeeding and walking miles and miles around my house bouncing my baby. But then the weight stopped coming off, then it started to come back on. Luckily that's also when I started being able to get 6 hours of sleep in a row and thus able to be a little more proactive about my health.

Over all my life is great and I love it. I just feel like I could love it better if I were in shape. I want to look great and feel great to match my great life. My daughter deserves a mother who can run and chase after her. A mother who will take her on hikes in the Smoky Mountains and show her all life has to offer. I also owe it to her to set a good example and to teach her how to be a happy responsible adult who loves herself enough not to poison her body with food. She deserves to learn that food is fuel and food is nourishment, but food is not a substitute for happiness, and so do I. She deserves all that, but I do too.
I'm currently doing Weight Watchers with my mom and it's going really well! I am really liking it a lot and already seeing results!

Today you have the choice to be amazing. Today you can do more than just try. You can succeed. You can be victorious. Today, you can rock your world. You can look yourself in the eye and smile... because you know that you are fighting for an amazing cause: YOU. And YOU are absolutely worth fighting for.

You can also do the same thing tomorrow.

"It's not whether you get knocked down; it's whether you get up." - Vince Lombardi

In honour of the upcoming Summer Olympic Games this Saturday in London, I give to you the Olympic Creed which is as true for the games as it is for achieving our own goals and dreams each and every day:

"The most important thing in the Olympic Games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well."

Today, you are a superhero, a survivor, a warrior, and a beacon to others for honouring yourself, your mind and your body; for making the choices that will make you an even better person tomorrow.

Today you are one step closer, because you decided to be. Fight strong, fight well, fight fair.

"Never, never, never, never give up." - Winston Churchill

Today is the unofficial "take happiness into your own hands" day. It's unofficial because I just made it up! (*grin*) But it seems like a great idea, right? Today, try not to be controlled by others... decide to be happy, decide to be great. Move forward as if all your dreams could come true today with no barriers standing in your way. Smile, laugh, and be amazing...

emoticon emoticon Because you ARE. emoticon emoticon

“I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be. Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.” - Groucho Marx

Just stopping by to spread some spark
Wanna welcome you and not leave you in the dark
So get up with me and do a little dance
You don't wanna miss your chance
Let's put on some shoes and go for a walk
Or even if you just need to talk
A spark friend is here all the time
Even to just spread a little sunshine!

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Welcome to the DONE Girl Team! Anything you need, I am there, support, motivation, inspiration, just yell! Good luck on your journey!

Hi Kate Thank you for the kind words. I had a set back in September , had a blood clot in my right femoral vein after a procedure on my heart , was on coumadin ( blood thinner ) for 3 months, then fell off my bike a week later, thought I was ok but I kept slowing down and gaining weight even though I had met a great guy , found out a couple of months ago that I had developed arthritis in my right hip socket , the hip I fell on when I fell off my bike. The good news is I don't need a hip replacement. I was in physical therapy for 3 weeks, got my leg to have complete range of motion again though it hurts and wakes me up and I have limitations now for what I can do for exercise. I was down to 174 in August of last year , in the picture on my profile page I was 179 and I am back up to 189 and FLABBY not toned like I was. I am not going to the gym like I was, I tend to sleep too long in the morning and then the classes are over! I am sleeping very well for the first time in my life thanks to adaptogen herbs and GABA that the new man I am seeing ( he turned me on to them ) and I wasn't sick with a cold all winter so some things are better. I have to figure out something else to do. I wanted to go to Yoga this morning , and had no idea it was as late it was , just kept dozing it was so dark , woke up at 8am, it was raining! My Yoga class started at 8:15, it was raining anyway so dang I couldn't get there in the rain on my bike too dangerous to try to ride there on my bike. I got some 'The Firm' DVD's guess it will be one of those days today. ;). I have been helping a friend of mine with her twin baby boys since last August as well, they are almost a year old, I help her a few days a week with them they give me a lot of pleasure. I help her with the laundry, and other household chores and then help with the babies , feeding, diapering , holding , what ever needs to be done which means now that they are almost one ( holding their little hands while they 'walk' ) since they think they can walk ) lol.
Children have always been one of my biggest joys!
