NEW YEAR! NEW ME! New updates!
Starting with a fresh slate(profile)!
Saw doc on Tuesday. If blood work turns out as good as he hopes on Monday... he will definitely take me off my sugar & cholesterol meds!! He thinks the results will be even better than last time!! He is still considering taking me off the thyroid med. I only lost a pound since December! But he says it's because I gained muscle mass. I went from a size 24 jeans back in December to a size 16/18 now. Gonna be stepping up the exercising with Casper & he's also been teaching me how to dance!...I can't cut back much more on food & eat like him as I didn't have the gastric bypass surgery like he did. But I am on the lean & green diet like he is... Doc says I am doing so good I don't have to see him for 6 mths. instead of the usual 4 mths.!!... Just following the lean & green diet Casper is on has worked wonders for me! He's been such an inspiration to me! ... New goal date is for June 7th,2015...
Check out the old me from 2010@ 325 lbs. Yuck!-lol! Vs me(minus being dolled up as I was lounging-lol!) now @ 185 lbs. Got a ways to go but WOW! what a difference!!...My weigh in is April 14th so I will have a NEW update then!! :)
Great visit@ doc's today!! Very impressed w/ my progress! Will be taken off sugar & cholesterol meds in April! He's keeping me on thyroid med indefinitely. He wants me to lose only 20 lbs.(making me @ 170 lbs.) but I am rooting for a 50 lb. weight loss (making me @ 140 lbs.) He said any more & I will be scrawny looking.Sugar,thyroid, & cholesterol are all at normal levels. Keep active with exercise & eating healthy like I have been & he will see about taking me off thyroid med. He wants to see me lose this weight between now & April 14th!! :) I've set a NEW goal date of February 16th,2015 to lose the 20 lbs. & then will go from there on losing the additional 30 lbs.(if needed)!!...
MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY:
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 135 lbs.with the majority lost since August 17th,2011. I have just 20 lbs. to go to meet my goal weight of 170 lbs. by my new goal date of 2/16/15!! 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 will be taking me off my sugar & cholesterol meds in April 2015! & if I lose that last 20 lbs. by my April 14th dr. appt. 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 8 lbs. from my weight loss goal when I came to the Adirondacks to better my life on 1/4/2008. I am currently 2 lbs. from the weight I was in that photo. 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 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!
Many ask me-"How did you do it?!" & my answer is:
I have cut my portions by more than half. I am eating more "Lean & Green!" Eating lots of fresh fruits & vegetables. I eat chicken & fish. I barely even eat any red meats 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!
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.
In February 2014 I joined the events committee planning the founder's day carnival held the first weekend after Labor Day where 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!:
