Welcome to my SparkPage! My name is Katie and I'm getting ready to learn what I'm really made of - and figure out how to pay for my new life. I had Roux-en-Y bariatric surgery April 22, 2013.

I've been overweight since I was born. Weighing 9 lbs, 5 oz on my way in, I haven't stopped yet. I've gone up and down a bit, but never in a 'healthy' range, no matter how much exercise I did or how little I ate, or both. My best friend met me while I was waitressing and couldn't, and still can't, figure out why I'm the size I am. I was hoping the surgery would give me the blank slate I need to restart my body at the right weight for me.

Though I got down to my lowest weight of 160.5, a series of setbacks has gotten me back in the 190s. No, surgery is NOT a cure-all, but I know I CAN be where I need to be now! Back here and working it to get back to where I was.

Fitness Minutes: 5,003

My Goals:
Get in my protein. Not get ahead of myself. Give myself a break.

My Program:
Protein and water. That's what they preach - protein and water.

Personal Information:
While I am trying to lose weight, I feel that being healthy is the ultimate goal. I've always been overweight but active - I'm exactly the same weight as I was my senior year of high school, and I was a swimmer! Now it's time to keep the outside matching my inside, and with a little help, I can make it (again!).

Other Information:
I love geekdom, so Magic the Gathering, Star Trek, Munchkin, Big Bang Theory, Lord of the Rings, fanfiction, and other slightly-out-of-mainstream things make up much of my free time!

I am 2 years post Roux-en-Y. I have chronic migraines and a narcolepsy-type sleeping disorder, among other issues.
