Hi my name is Katie and I'm starting again on Spark people (And yes that's me on top of a mountain!! in the background lol). It's been a rocky year so far - we found out my dad has cancer back in February and ever since then it's been a roller coaster gone wrong. I can't do too much for my dad other than be there for him, but I can do something for myself - and getting healthy is one of my goals.

I'm planning on starting a garden this year so I can grow my own veggies - and then I won't have any excuses for not getting enough vegetables. But I really just need support and some friends who have some of the same goals as me.

Right now my goal is to lose about 50 pounds in time for my cousin's wedding in October and my college graduation in December. If any one here lives in southern NH and needs a workout buddy let me know. Thanks!

And be done with it.

Absurdities have crept in.
Forget them as soon as you can." - Ralph Waldo Emerson

My Goals:
10% (25 lbs) by Aug 19th

Go for a walk at least 5 times a week and get some kind of weight training in.

Make a meal plan and follow it as closely as possible.

Weigh in once every week or two to keep track of my progress.

My Program:
Basically what I stated in my goals, I really want to lose some weight by the time I graduate in December.

Personal Information:
I am a yo-yo weight loss person - not dieter because I don't really do diets, but sometimes I'm just more motivated to actually do the work required than others.

My dad just got diagnosed with lung cancer, so I think that has really made me take a good look at my life - where I am now and where I want to be. There's so much I want to get done and I want him to be there to see it.

Other Information:
I love to read and watch movies, which don't exactly contribute to a very active lifestyle, but I do love the outdoors, just usually when I have someone to enjoy it with. So really when I'm social I'm very social, and when I'm not, I'm really not - but I do always try to be kind.
