I'm in to my 4th week on my journey so you missed the exciting stuff like: Chocolate cake, a suit that didn't fit, frustration with my weight loss, and my favorite - can I really do this? I am now currently of the opinion - HECK YES! WHY DIDN'T I DO THIS SOONER?! lol I'm not saying it's easy. I have been blessed to be unemployed (lol yes blessing, not a curse) and while I've been looking for work I've been changing my eating habits. Helps a whole lot not to eat breakfast and lunch out at fast food. Helps to have extra time to plan and exercise. While I'm home and doing this, it's helping me not get bummed about a job and be grateful instead. Who gets this much time to work on themselves? I didn't want to waste it. So I sit down and write out the menu for each meal for the week. I use the treadmill or take my dog, Emma, for a walk, and I concentrate on my successes. So far I have lost 10 lbs. (8 officially). I weigh in on Fridays and will update this blog then. I encourage whoever reads this to join me! My goal is to have lost 145 lbs. by the end of May, 2013. When I think of that, it encourages me. Next summer I'll be wearing cute clothes, riding roller coasters and sitting comfortably (as you can get) in airplanes.
My name is Kat and I'm a single mom of two young adults. I have not always been overweight but after having children and going through some personal hurdles, let it get out of control. My philosophy about eating is this: Eat real food. Real eggs, butter, veggies. Eliminating processed junk as much as possible. I eat butter, not faux butter product because I believe my body can better process real food rather than chemicals.
