JANUARY 2018
NEW YEAR! NEW ME! New updates!
Starting with a fresh slate(profile)!
Finally getting around to updating my profile! It was a busy 2017 & 2018 is just getting started!!
I see my doctor for followup & weigh in @ the end of this month & will update my profile from that point on...considering gastric bypass surgery as I am not losing the weight as fast as I'd like & my doctor tells me I am a candidate.We'll see what he says @ this appointment. I know it's not an easy fix. You have to work @ continuing the healthy lifestyle to keep the weight off. I've been on Casper's GB journey with him since he had his surgery October 2013. So I know what it takes.Discipline,determination,& being positive & believing in yourself! I will let you know what I decide! I have been on the lean,clean,& green with Casper & I just need to be more active than I've been. Summer & Fall 2017 I had a job watching 2 beautiful children nearly 24/7 & that sure kept me busy. That is until their mother lost her job & well that situation didn't end well.I ended up being sickly with colds & flu into the end of 2017.This year I am much more rested & I know that 2018 is my year!! So I am hoping to go in a different direction this year with a career I am looking into! Wish me luck! Casper & I are doing great & still looking into buying a home of our own when the time is right for us!...I will keep you updated on that!...I've lived in Upstate NY 10 years as of 1/4/18!!... :)

MY JOURNEY TO A HEALTHIER ME:

Hi everybody! My name is Kelly & I have been a member of SP since July 20th, 2010. In the time that I've been here I've lost 165 lbs.with the majority lost since August 17th,2011. I have just __ lbs. to go to meet my (doc's stated)goal weight of 170 lbs. by my new goal date of __/__/18!! Casper feels I could lose another 120 lbs. But that would put me closer to 120 lbs! My doctor feels if I go into the 120-140 lbs range I will be too scrawny looking for my 5 ft 9 in frame! In March 2012 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes(-found out I'd had it for 5 yrs.-),under active thyroid,& high cholesterol. My sugar is now normal as are my thyroid & my cholesterol. The doctor took me off my sugar & cholesterol meds in April 2015! & if I lose that last __ lbs. & maintain it for awhile he will consider taking me off my thyroid med!! My doctor is very impressed with my progress & says that he is going to mark me down as a success story. I know that it has taken me longer to lose the weight this time around. But I am doing it the healthy way. Not due to being under stress. I am doing it through living a healthier lifestyle. I AM seeing results & you can too!!... We all hit plateaus but we make our way through it. Please don't give up!...

The 1st time around in 2007 I lost 109 lbs. within like 4 months time. Refer to pic of me (with my "rocker chick" look)at my thinnest. I was like 18 lbs. from my weight loss goal when I came to the Adirondacks to better my life on 1/4/2008.I'm the happiest I've been in a long time! I came here to build a positive life with my "partner in sublime" Casper. We've been together since 3/29/07! First met as kids & reunited some 23 yrs. later & have been inseparable ever since!! Unfortunately I had been under a lot of stress up to that point & was severely malnourished. Had I not removed myself from the situation I was in at that time with the help of my love I probably would not have survived. Because I was sicker than myself or anyone knew. So Casper literally saved my life!! & I owe him a lot for all that he has done for me! He is a good man! & I am so blessed to have him in my life! We are actually working on buying a home of our own & hope to be moving within the next 2 years(by 2020)!!...

Many ask me-"How did you do it?!" & my answer is:
I have cut my portions by more than half. I am eating "Lean, clean, & Green!" Eating lots of fresh fruits & vegetables. I eat chicken & fish. I eat only the leanest of red meats(93%+)these days. I don't eat much pastas & bread anymore. I've cut down on the processed foods & the takeout/eating out. I rarely have soda & I have only about 2-3 cups of coffee a day. I don't crave/ overindulge in sweets like some & for that I am thankful. I haven't given up things completely. I just learned more about moderation on the not so good things & focusing more on the foods that are good for me!

****************************************
ABOUT ME:

For those of you that know me I keep VERY! busy. I am all over the internet & I wear many hats. I have a lot of people that depend on me & I need to be healthy to be able to do all that I do...

As an Event Promoter/Manager/Agent/Marketing Rep/ Founder(since April 2007) I provide non-profit promotional assistance by helping musicians to promote their links & through recommendations as well as airplay on our online radio & TV stations. So I do a lot of networking through business & social networking sites. We also have a foundation/ musical movement geared toward child abuse awareness which is incorporated into our promotions company & as part of our ministry. I am an (ordained) reverend. I am a singer. We also have a LIVE!! online music room that we are currently retooling! This area is my focus.


I also share missing/ exploited posters & AMBER alerts via the internet,assisting authorities in solving cold cases,etc...

As if that were not enough I have several other projects going on like online studies to better my advocate/research specialist/ mediation work,etc.

In February 2014 I joined the events committee planning the founder's day carnival held the first weekend after Labor Day where I live. And in October 2015 I joined the revitalization committee for the town in which I live.

If you would like to know more about me-please feel free to add me here & please be sure to tell me how I know you! Thanx!:

    If you believe, truly believe to your core, that you can do this, you can. You absolutely can. Don’t be a doubter; be a doer.
