You're life is an occasion, rise to it!

I have been divorsed for about 6 months now and mentally feeling much much better. When I first started sparkpeople it was to try to lose my "babyweight" and find some kind of control in my ever spinning out of control world. I did good for a while but my ex-husband was so discouraging to me all the time and I just couldn't deal with it so I gave up with the lack of will to keep this up. Today is a new day and new start I am currently dating the most wonderful supportive guy who loves me just as I am and now I feel I am finally ready to do this for me!

Fitness Minutes: 505

My Goals:
I WILL lose weight before my birthday in April. my goal is to reach half my current size by the end of this year. I keep saying every year "this will be the year" well this is the year and I will be health and smart about my eating and exorcising. It is no longer a choice now it is something I need to do to live a health life.

My Program:
Counting Calories is a huge part of my weight loss. I use to think that I could eat whatever I wanted and just work out well the problem became that I was eating more calories then I was burning. So my plan is to eat around 1400 cals a day and to work out five days a week do for at least 30 minutes. if you want to know exactly what I am doing just ask =0)

Personal Information:
My name is Katie and I live in Washington. It rains a lot here and there isn't the opportunity to take long walks outside so I have to find ways to work out in house.

Other Information:
A really big motivator for me is the biggest loser. The reality of it is that there is no "quick fix" and "easy way" it took me a while to get to this point and it is gonna take a while and hard work to get take it off. i had to realize that first. I had to realize that taking a pill wasn't going to fulfill my dreams I have to work to get them. Biggest loser shows people getting results from working hard. That is real life!

    Hi There Pretty,

    Good for you for hanging in there. Things have been rather crazy here too. Last three weeks of summer school are intense, but I am so close! Had a real bad sore throat last week, turned out to be a viral infection. Just got rid of it yesterday. Still feeling tired.

    Glad you are getting some sun shine in Vancouver. It was 108 here in Sacramento and so smoky outside that my eyes burned walking from my work building to my car. It is the worst have ever seen out here. The sun even has this weird orange glow. Hopefully they will get these fires out soon, the air quality is really awful.

    You hang in there! I am looking forward to my weigh in a few more weeks!!

    Hi Katie,

    Just wanted to check in. School is getting more intense and work is picking up so lots less time to play lately!

    Hope you have a fantastic week!!

    Hi Katie,

    It has been a pretty busy week this week for me too. Your new photo is so cute!! Soooo glad you are doing well even though you are having a tough week. You should give yourself lots of credit for losing weight while raising two little ones and working full time. You are amazing.

    I took your advice and my hubby and I went to San Francisco for the day. We hung out in our old neighborhood and took a long walk at Ocean Beach and Golden Gate Park. I so miss my old nieghboorhood. We have lived in Sacramento for the last few years, which is a real nice place too, but I am a city girl at heart. Anyway, it felt great to visit our old haunts.

    Hope you did something fun too! Have a great week!
