Hello all! My name is Katie, and I'm a 19-year-old sophomore in college. Life is great! Except, I've struggled with being a little heavier my whole life, and on top of that my first year of college was not exactly slimming. Right now I'm 5'7'' and 162.5 pounds. My ideal goal would be to one day reach 130. I know I can do it! I just need the support of all you guys to help me out :)
I'm really into my faith, I'm a loving person, and I'd love to be there for anyone who needs support. Always remember: "We can do no great things, only small things with great love" -- Mother Teresa :)
Also, in terms of my background: Nina Dobrev is my fitness inspiration!
My general goal is to be more fit and healthy. I want fitness to become a priority for me. I especially want to gain more energy!

I've always wanted to be able to call myself a runner. I'm not the best, but I love the way I feel afterwards! Here are a few running goals I have for myself:
[ ] 2 miles w/o stopping
[ ] 5k, on own w/o stopping
[ ] 5k in an actual race!
[ ] 10k
[ ] Half marathon!
I don't have a super set program yet, but I'm hopefully going to be sticking to the advice of SparkPeople. I'm going to watch my portion sizes and go for a run every day!

People disappear for all sorts of reasons. Life gets in the way, we forget or change our views on what we deem is important, we get buried under stress, frustration, illness. We sometimes give up, throw in the towel, or just promise ourselves that once things get better/easier/calmer, we will hitch up our socks and come back fresh. We've all done it. We've all been there. And if perhaps, you just need a supportive hug, or a helping hand or a word of inspiration, please know that I am offering it to you with no judgment, no guilt. It seems like it's been a while since you've been here and I just wanted to let you know that you are missed.

I know I'm a couple days early, but I may not have time to post on the weekend, so...
~~ If only for today: smile a little more, sing a bit off key, laugh loudly and long, dance, skip, jump, play. Eat with your hands, hug every kind soul that crosses your path. Finger-paint, face-paint, body-paint. Do something brave. Squash a fear. Get out of your shell. Wear something sparkly. Be wild, be strong, be silly. For being foolish can make you happy but being happy will never make you a fool. ~~ Michelle

Happy Almost Spring!! This coming Tuesday marks the Spring Equinox and in preparation for the first day of the new season I would like to wish you a brand new start, never-ending moments of poise and balance and a joyful tip over on the scale to the side of light. I wish you a new dawn, an eternal youth and a morning star to wish on. Whatever battles you are fighting, whatever stresses may come your way, may they melt away with the winter and may you be granted a time of new light and a new life where your wildest dreams come true. ~ Michelle
"Celebrating the Spring Equinox: The spring equinox is one of the four great solar festivals of the year. Day and night are equal, poised and balanced, but about to tip over on the side of light. The spring equinox is sacred to dawn, youth, the morning star and the east. The Saxon goddess, Eostre (from whose name we get the direction East and the holiday Easter) is a dawn goddess, like Aurora and Eos. Just as the dawn is the time of new light, so the vernal equinox is the time of new life." - from http://www.schooloftheseasons.com/spring.h
