Runs for Cookies

In 2009, I got fed up with being fat. I changed my diet and eventually started exercising, and lost 125 pounds in 16 months. I've been maintaining 100+ pounds lost since August 2010.

You can see the whole story in my blog, in which I write daily: www.runsforcookies.com/p/about-me.html

My best advice: Don't make ANY changes that you don't plan on sticking with forever! That is the reason I don't spend 7 days a week working out in the gym... I am only willing to work ...

My best advice: Don't make ANY changes that you don't plan on sticking with forever! That is the reason I don't spend 7 days a week working out in the gym... I am only willing to work out 3 days a week for the rest of my life, so that's all I do now. I don't give up foods I love, because I'm not willing to give them up FOREVER. Sure, I might lose faster if I eat 1200 calories per day, but I'm not willing to do that for the rest of my life, so I don't do it now.

I get asked a lot of questions about my weight loss, so I've typed F.A.Q.'s here: http://www.runsforcookies.com/p/faqs.html

Finally, I'm terrible about responding to SparkMail, so I turned off the SparkMail option. If you'd like to get in touch with me, however, you can find my contact info here: http://www.runsforcookies.com/p/contact.ht

Fitness Minutes: 31,339

My Goals:
CURRENT GOALS:

Maintain a weight under 135.

Continue to run a minimum of 3x/week.

Maintain a binge-free streak.

PAST GOALS (that I've accomplished):

*Run a 5K.
*Run a 10K.
*Run a half-marathon.
*Run a marathon.
*Reach a "normal" BMI.

My Program:
DIET: I count calories, eating about 1900 per day in maintenance. Details/FAQ's on my blog.

EXERCISE: Now, I run 3-5x/week. When I was losing weight, I didn't start exercising until after I'd lost 60 pounds. I started with walking, and eventually switched over to running. Running is my exercise of choice, and I like to run races to keep myself motivated.

Personal Information:
I'm 34 years old. I've been married for 12 years to my high school sweetheart. We live in Michigan with our two boys, ages 11 and 10 (Noah & Eli).

I like to knit and crochet and do anything crafty. My husband is my best friend, and I love spending time just hanging out with him. He has a Sparkpage too, although he doesn't keep up with it much--his spark name is JERRICKDAMON.

I also have a love of wine! My friend and I started a wine club that gets together once a month to taste different wines and have girl talk :)

Other Information:
Since losing the weight, I became an RRCA-certified running coach and a NASM weight loss specialist.

Hi Katie, I have been following you for awhile now and have enjoyed your journey. My daughter Jamie (J_MCC_85) bought me a Fitbit for my birthday in December and I'm so loving it. I don't know if you are adding anymore friends to your Fitbit but I would love to have you: teresamdickey@gmail.com. I know your an extremely busy mom and now a trainer. I am so proud of what you have done with your life.
Keep Step'n & Spark'n
