Kimberly's Journey

I will write more later, but just wanted to get my page started....I have battled with weight much of my life, but it became most serious when I was started on Prednisone to treat Autoimmune Hepatitis . I put on 70 pounds in just the first 6 months. I continued to gain at a slower rate for the next couple of years until I reached my highest weight of 245.

I will write more later, but just wanted to get my page started....I have battled with weight much of my life, but it became most serious when I was started on Prednisone to treat Autoimmune Hepatitis . I put on 70 pounds in just the first 6 months. I continued to gain at a slower rate for the next couple of years until I reached my highest weight of 245. I finally stopped gaining weight, but losing the weight has been elusive! I finally began to lose weight about a year ago and am now down to 215. Now I really want to take more active steps to live a healthier lifestyle and be in shape despite remaining on the Prednisone. I battle some chronic health issues that have made it difficult, but I want to push through despite them and be as healthy as I can be while living with them. I know that it will be difficult, but I plan to focus on baby steps initially. I joined a few days ago and am carefully tracking my food intake in order to gain some insight into where I might need to make some changes...

My Goals:
I believe in breaking big goals down into smaller, more attainable goals! My current goals are:
1) To reach 190 pounds, moving down from the "obese" category to the "overweight" category (based on BMI).
2) To begin exercising 3x/week consistently
3) To incorporate fresh produce into my diet on a daily basis consistently.
4) To get those 8 glasses of water a day on a consistent basis!

Personal Information:
I am 40, single, and live in Greensboro, NC. I have one 25-year-old adopted daughter with developmental delays and a 16-year-old cat who is my baby!
