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!

Yes! What is it about the peanut butter???? I'm about out so I don't think I will buy any on my next shopping trip. I think I like it because it makes me full and keeps me full for long periods of time but sometimes I find myself eating it when I'm not even hungry (and the darn ice cream). SMH, I have come to far to revert back to where I came from. I have done so well staying away from certain foods and or only having one portions/serving so I guess I am more disappointed in myself than anything else. Oh yea before I forget...CONGRATS ON YOUR RUN OR DYE RACE. Looks like you had a blast I need to go back and comment on your blog I was on my phone when I read it and couldn't comment. :-)
