Hi, I'm Kimb. (The "b" is silent.)
My family's cursed. I'm convinced that 100 years ago, one of my ancestors did something stupid like steal a witch doctor's goat and now we have to pay the price. We have a lot of medical problems. I won't lie, it scares me. So, I've decided to do what I can now to give my future self a fighting chance.
Each step I take, each new challenge I try to overcome: I do it for me. The Future Me.
My weight history:
Was slightly over weight through high school with the exception of a brief period where I lost 20lbs from swimming.
At college, in addition to the freshman fifteen, I got the sophomore thirty-four.
Senior year, I appealed to my doctor to help me lose weight and he put me on the South Beach diet. I started at 213 pounds and ended with 170.
Last year, I braved the scale and found that I was the heaviest I ever was: 225lbs.
November 1st: started a more relaxed version of the South Beach Diet, weight 222lbs
December 21st: started taking deep water classes at the YMCA, weight 205lbs
January 21st: joined sparkpeople, weight 200lbs
February 25th: started the Biggest Loser Challenge on SP on the Silver Star team (Go Silver Stars!), weight 195lbs
May 6th: Finished the BL Spring challenge, 182 lbs
May 27th: Started the Biggest Loser Summer Challenge, GO SASSY SILVER STARS!!!, weight 181 lbs
August 5th: Finished BL Summer Challenge, 170 lbs

"Beautiful Woman Award! Once you've been given this award, you have to paste it on the wall of 8 women who deserve it. If you receive more than 3, you know you're really beautiful! If you break the chain, nothing will happen, but it's always good to know someone thinks you're beautiful inside and out" and you truly are.....:)
