Kello's Weight Loss Journey

Hello, my name is Kellie (Wayne calls me Kello) and I''m 29 years old. I''m here because I''ve been ~50 lbs. overweight for like 10 years, and I''m done. I know that I could lose the weight if I was consistent: my body is (underneath all the fat) athletic, but I just can''t seem to stay motivated for more than 3 weeks at a time (and that''s a good go). :-( My whole life I''ve been known as an eater.

Hello, my name is Kellie (Wayne calls me Kello) and I''m 29 years old. I''m here because I''ve been ~50 lbs. overweight for like 10 years, and I''m done. I know that I could lose the weight if I was consistent: my body is (underneath all the fat) athletic, but I just can''t seem to stay motivated for more than 3 weeks at a time (and that''s a good go). :-( My whole life I''ve been known as an eater. I out ate a 22 year old army guy when I was 10 in a pancake eating contest...a ''''good'''' sized meal at McDonald''s for me was 2 Big Mac Meals and a large ice cream, but it wasn''t until my late teens that all that eating started to catch up with me. Still though, I sat at a comfortable 130-135 until I was around 18. Then I went on the Depo shot (birth control) and gained 30 lbs in six months. I gained another 15 lbs in the next two years, and have stayed right around 180-190 since then. I have PCOS, and Metabolic Disorder that comes along with it. I''ve tried many many times to lose weight, have mild success and lose the drive (usually 3 weeks in). I thought the dieting part would be the roughest...but that''s easy (as long as I stay stocked on healthy foods)! It''s getting my lazy but up and doing some exercise that''s my real issue. I would ultimately like to get all of my fruits/ veggies/ meat/ milk from local farmers, so that it is less environmentally damaging, but I will build up to that. I am also looking into local places to buy *very* fresh fish so that I can work that into my diet too.

If only I had a pullup bar in my house! I'd go CRAZY on that thing! My bootcamp trainer had a great idea for training for chinups. He has us put a chair under the bar, then hop up to the full chinup position and hold that for 10 seconds, then slooooowly let ourselves down. Really targets the "inbetween" muscles. :) Keep me updated on how you're doing!

Yay! Welcome back!!! Don't be too bummed, I read through my Spark blog last weekend and realized that I should have hit my goal like three times over. I let myself get sidetracked every time. Oh well, it'll happen eventually! Start small, good luck!

Hey you!! I disappeared. :( I'm sorry! But I'm back, and with new running shoes and everything. How did your new between-class routine with the little bro work out?
