Hi I’m Katherine,

Being overweight or the big girl has always been a part of my life and I have reached a point where it’s just not going to be anymore. My 28th birthday will be coming up in April and I want more than anything to not dodge the camera and when I see pictures of myself I want to like them instead of cringing at the sight. Now that I have covered the vanity part of it the health part is very important, both of my parents are facing pre-diabetes which makes me all the more prone to this disease as well as my kids this is not the way I want to go so it is time for a huge change. I am ready, this is the most important thing to me other than my kids, I don’t care about being in a relationship or dating this is a main priority now. I have a buddy, I love reading my spark friends stories of success to stay encouraged and I am so ready for this!

“Choose your goal and keep your eye on it. Never give up. Perhaps you will need to change your plan and approach your goal from a different direction, but don’t quit. Keep thinking. Keep re-planning. Keep going.
~Jonathan Lockwood Huie

Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better. ~Maya Angelou

A goal I aiming for right now is to be at least one dress smaller for my birthday April 30th

My Program:
Food- I am eating an average of under 1400 calories. I am allowed 1550 but I like to leave that extra as a buffer if maybe I miss something.
I have been very good about marking down EVERYTHING that I eat, I think this is really important for keeping me honest =0)
Today (1/2/13) is my one week mark and I will be starting my exercising tonight. I chose to give myself a week of getting the hang of eating under 1400 cals before I started.
So I have a staionary bike that I will be using 6x a week, I will be using core secrets for my weight training.
Drinking lots of water!

    Thank you for your comment. I just felt a bit of honesty coming on. I've played that card "I'm doing it for my health." But that's a complete lie. One thing I have to work on is living in the here and now and not 10 pounds from now.... if you know what I mean.

    Thanks for your comment on the blog. Maybe there's no good way to tell someone they need to reassess where they are at with their weight. But denial can lull you into a frightening complacency. I guess I need to figure out how to avoid that trap in the future!

    Thank you so much for the blog love! The best part of this journey is being able to inspire hope and change in others and I am so glad that you have found a little slice of inspiration in my words. I hope you hit your birthday goal, and if you don't, I hope you are able to recognize how far you have come.
