My name is KT ... I'm more than a number.

My name is KT. I've battled weight and food issues for the majority of life. In realty, I waged a battle against myself even before knew who I was. As a young child I looked to fill a hole deep in my heart and soul. As an adult my battle became a war and I generally lost that war against food. I was addicted. I lost the war and topped out at 325 pounds.

I took control of my life and health in 2002. I began to live healthier - mind, body and soul. I sought out a therapist ...
My name is KT. I've battled weight and food issues for the majority of life. In realty, I waged a battle against myself even before knew who I was. As a young child I looked to fill a hole deep in my heart and soul. As an adult my battle became a war and I generally lost that war against food. I was addicted. I lost the war and topped out at 325 pounds.

I took control of my life and health in 2002. I began to live healthier - mind, body and soul. I sought out a therapist that help me understand me. By 2007 I was 100 lbs. lighter. I should have been happy and filled with energy - I was not. I felt weighted down, angry, depressed. I was raging again but this time it was against the world. Even with countless hours in the gym and eating well my weight was creeping back. When I’d gain back 15 pounds and in tears daily from fatigue I was at my wits end. Sometimes in life you just have to ask for help and if one person doesn’t listen move on to the next ... someone will hear you! I did just that and I found Doc. Three years later I am, once again, on top. Countless tests revealed that I was in stage four of adrenal failure and my metabolism was badly damaged. In short, my body was tired of fighting and it was crying out for help. Instead of quitting or waging another war I stopped and listened. Now in 2011 I am again losing weight and continue treatment with Doc.

Who am I? I am ... A woman. A wife. A manager of time. A lover. A friend. I am not a number on a scale or a number on the tag of my clothing. I am ME in all my glory!

Life does not being when we achieve “skinny.” Life beings when we start living it. I live everyday. I live out loud. I have embraced life and all my curves.

I'm a work in progress and I'm fabulous!

"KT-NICHOLS-13 It's hard for me to readjust when my workout partner cancels at the last minute. I understand things happen BUT ... *sigh*"
* That's frustrating.

Yep, the holidays just aren't the same without baking SOME goodies. I just need to realize that too many are going to be my downfall. I'm gonna make some cookies this weekend, but I intend to give 95% of them away. Get them out of my house! Now... to just not eat any batter...

Thank you for the comment on my blog! I can honestly say I can relate to a lot of your struggles...I'm done with dr's & so far Keto has helped me out a lot...when I can afford it, I will go to a naturopathic doctor to check my adrenals...I know there's something more going on than just the old "you just have to diet and exercise to get energy/lose weight" that the dr's keep telling me.

Thanks again and keep up the good work! :)
