Where I've Been and Where I'm Going

Hi, my name is Katie and I'm a blog slacker.

"Hi, Katie!"

Okay, first the excuses.  The whole inspiration for this quest was looking good for Becky and Jason's wedding on 9/3/11.  Success.  At that point, I had lost 25.4 pounds and was doing great.  Shortly after, I was cast in a production of "Rent", the musical.  Great, more inspiration to look good... have to impress the fans.  :)

Then things went downhill.  As my theater friends will tell you, an intensive rehearsal schedule can kill you.  Once I hit tech week, my eating patterns went back to fast food extremes, I didn't have time to exercise, blah blah blah... Then Bob got really sick and eventually passed, then I was in NY for a stint, then it was the holidays, then I went on a cruise... blah blah blah.

So yeah, I was busy.  An excuse?  A reason?  Don't know, don't care - it's in the past.  At my best, I was down 34.6 pounds.  The last 2 months I gained a bunch of that back.  As I sit here typing, I've gained back 12 of those pounds.

The bad news - that sucks.  That was 12 pounds that took forever to take off.  It's 12 pounds that's gonna take ANOTHER forever to take off again.

The good news - I'm back on track.  Back at my WW meetings, back at Planet Fitness, back in a motivated mind set.

So now, I just need to keep my eyes on the prize and go.  I'm still 22.6 pounds lighter than I was when I started March 26, 2011.  I'm healthier, and I'm in better shape...

Now it's just time to keep going.  Time to be skinny.  Or at least sweetly slender.



  1. So proud of you for getting back on track!

  2. Katie, you inspired ME! You have amazing control, and you're doing it for ALLLL the right reasons. <3
