I'm happily married to my best friend and the mother of a 3rd grader. I've had weight problems my entire life. I am hoping to end those problems forever by focusing on HEALTH, not necessarily numbers. I previously was learning to love pushing myself by running, kickboxing, dancing, strength training and doing yoga - all at home. Now I need to rediscover that love! I was doing great and then completely derailed gaining back everything and more over the last 2 years. I have a long way to go, and I've "started" many times, but I am so proud of how far I came in the past. I did it before, I can do it again. I also was recently diagnosed with some autoimmune diseases, so that explains some of my issues. The meds are not helping with weight. Hoping to find some guidance from others on tackling weight loss with my health issues. Never giving up!

Member Since: 8/22/2006

Fitness Minutes: 32,501

My Goals:
I am entering 5lb increments, will put the date completed as I go.

Starting 4/27/16

I'd like to be down:
10# by June 12.
30-40# by Sept 11
Goal weight by Sept/2017

My Program:
Mainly I'm trying to listen to my body and make healthy choices.
I'm trying to cut back on refined carbs and add more whole grains, I'm tracking to be aware, and I'm adding more dynamic workouts - moving up from just trying to get steps and going on occasional walks. Getting back into dance cardio, etc.

Personal Information:
My name is Katie, I'm a mom and wife and I work part-time at a family business.

Other Information:
I love reading (which is quite helpful on the treadmill), writing, getting out in nature, though I'm still learning how to get out in it more often. I'm also into learning to meditate, working on my mind and spirit as well as body.

    Hey! I'm good! How are you? I haven't talked to you in forever it seems!! A lot has happened since, I am no longer a stay at home mom, I have been working for almost a year now. We have moved, and my son is wrapping up his 5th grade year in school! He will be going off to middle school in the fall:( Time has flown by! Also, I am going to be the maid of honor for my sisters' wedding in September, so right now that's the motivation to lose some of the extra lbs.
    So I am still here on spark just not as much. How have things been going with you?

    It was good to see you on the Status Feed this morning. I hope you are around more often. On your SparkPage you mentioned having a kindergarten age child. Is that current or are you struggling with a teenager? Sometimes those teens are enough to drive anyone to eat! In any case, take care and keep your body moving, and have a great day.
