Hey there Spark Friends! I'm a 29 year old HR professional in the Atlanta area. I moved here four months ago to take a chance at love and follow my dreams at furthering my HR career. I have a unique and ADORING outlook on life and the people in this world.

I've been on a journey of weight loss since 2009. I was at my highest weight ever (maybe 230-235? I was too scared to look at the scale at the dr) Denial was my coping mechanism. January of 2009 I got laid off from my first "big-girl job" and my boyfriend had just told me that he wasn't attracted to me any longer because of my weight. 10 months later I was down 46lbs to 189lbs. I looked awesome! So I started eating fast food again, I stopped working out. I gained, I lost a little, I gained a little. I was all over the place.

After a few years of WW and other miscellaneous "tries", I haven't been very successful. I've maintained (for the most part)-that's about it. I weigh 197 again. I'm 5'9" and carry most of my weight in my arms/chest and legs, so my stomach wasn't usually huge and sticking out, so I always tried to justify because I wasn't apple shaped, I was "okay". Ugh. WRONG. I can do so much better!

I have finally met the love of my life and things couldn't be better. When I told my friend that I had gained a few pounds, she said "Well yeah, you're happy!" Ain't that the truth!! I am happier than I've ever been with my life and the people in it, but I am NOT happy with the way I've let myself go. Now that the rest of my life is falling into place, ts time to go back to what worked before ...tracking my food and workouts. Join me on my journey and I'd love to follow your successes along the way!!

My Goals:
I would really love to lose 30 pounds (from when I started SP). 185 would make me very happy! I know some of you are like "185! Thats still more than your BMI is supposed to be!" But I hate the BMI calculation & I quite honestly think its stupid. We are all built differently and @ 5'9" and with my bust/waist/hip ratio 150 would look unhealthy on me. So you skinny girls can keep your BMI calcs. Im ok with being a little higher than "normal".

My Program:
Watching my calorie intake and working out regularly. Trying to eat more healthy foods (vegetables--YUCK!) instead of the quick, easy foods.

Personal Information:
Im Kaylee. I live in Charleston, SC and have for the past 2+ years. I moved here from Charlotte after graduating college. I miss Charlotte--A LOT! lol The End.

Other Information:
I love scrapbooking & photography!

    I got the job, so I am moving to Greenville in a couple weeks -- but I totally agree, having someone to hold you accountable helps in the whole process. I've started logging calories again -- on day 9 currently! I've already noticed I'm cutting out over a 1,000 calories a day by rethinking some previous food choices! Anyway, if you are ever in the Greenville area and want to go hiking or something, let me know! I heard they have great trails in the mountains. My number is 781-308-9139 and name is Jackie. Good luck with your journey!

    I just moved to the Charleston area a couple months ago from Massachusetts upon graduating college and I am looking for a running buddy or workout partner. I do have an interview in Greenville for a job next week, but if it doesn't work out, would you be interested?

    Your welcome! And thank you! I'm from Massachusetts, but I've been to Wisconsin, lol.
