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 ...

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)!!...
I see doc on the 8th & will update my weigh in then. I had to have lost another 5-10 lbs. but will be able to tell better once I get on the scale. Ours died & have to get a new one in the meantime-lol! NEW profile pic is most recent of me from Thanksgiving Day! :) Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! A lot to be thankful for this year!!...
Hit a plateau since May & have only lost 1 lb. since then. But I have not gained any weight in that time either. So,that is a plus for sure! I've given myself a new goal date of Halloween 10/31/14 to get down to 180 lbs. & then go from there.I'd like to be @ 148 lbs. But we'll see... :)
I have lost another 15 lbs. since April 14th. First I hit a plateau & now I am losing the last bit of this weight since I've been exercising even more! :) I have 12 lbs. to go to reach my goal of 180 lbs. as specified by my doctor. But I am thinking I want to reach the lowest goal possible of 148 lbs. meaning I will have another 32 lbs. to go. Any more than that I will be too thin the doctor said. So that is my cut off for the perfect weight for me!...
I have lost 15 lbs. since January 9th! with another 27 lbs. to go to meet my weight loss goal!! :)
NEW YEAR!~NEW ME!!
Time to update the profile so here it goes! :)
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 118 lbs.with the majority lost since August 17th,2011. I have just 27 lbs. to go to meet my goal weight of 180 lbs. by my new goal date of 7/8/14!! In March 2012 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes(-found out I'd had it for 5 yrs.-),under active thyroid,& high cholesterol. In February 2013 I was told that my diabetes is going away. My thyroid is doing better & my cholesterol is going down. I received my latest results recently & now my cholesterol levels are within normal range! Once I reach my weight goal & as long as my blood work continues to come back with the results that my doctor hopes for he says that then he will be able to take me off my medications. 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 19 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!
But I am getting healthier every day! 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/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 am back with the talent agency I have worked for on/off since May 2007 & have been promoted from Data Entry to Show Biz Marketing Rep!! To Trainer/Manager(of new marketing reps.!) I am booking acts at casinos in Las Vegas & California as well as other areas. I am currently working on putting a show together @ casinos for The Trammps & The Dramatics! I am also working on getting a local KDJ to do an event. As well as booking artists to other venues in several areas. Got a lot going on! But I love what I do!!
I also share missing/ exploited posters & amber alerts via the internet.
I attend online IPS(Intentional Peer Support) meetings. By doing so I am continuing to assist the peers in my community.
As if that were not enough I have several other projects going on like online studies to better my advocate/research specialist work-assisting authorities in solving cold cases,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.
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!:
~Follow my journey to a healthier "ME" :) ~
