I hit a plateau there for a bit.But with this recent weight loss I am hoping I am back on track. It's been a busy year! I check in when I can! Hope you are all having successful weight loss journeys! Wishing you a safe & Happy Summer!

MY WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY:

Hi everybody! My name is Kelly & I have been a member of SP since July 20th, 2010. In the time that I've been here I've lost 161 lbs.with the majority lost since August 17th,2011. I have just 75 lbs. to go to meet my goal weight of 170 lbs. by my new goal date of 2/27/18!! In March 2012 I was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes(-found out I'd had it for 5 yrs.-),under active thyroid,& high cholesterol. My sugar is now normal as are my thyroid & my cholesterol. The doctor took me off my sugar & cholesterol meds in April 2015! & if I lose that last 75 lbs. & maintain it for awhile he will consider taking me off my thyroid med!! My doctor is very impressed with my progress & says that he is going to mark me down as a success story. I know that it has taken me longer to lose the weight this time around. But I am doing it the healthy way. Not due to being under stress. I am doing it through living a healthier lifestyle. I AM seeing results & you can too!!... We all hit plateaus but we make our way through it. Please don't give up!...

The 1st time around in 2007 I lost 109 lbs. within like 4 months time. Refer to pic of me (with my "rocker chick" look)at my thinnest. I was like 18 lbs. from my weight loss goal when I came to the Adirondacks to better my life on 1/4/2008.I'm the happiest I've been in a long time! I came here to build a positive life with my "partner in sublime" Casper. We've been together since 3/29/07! First met as kids & reunited some 23 yrs. later & have been inseparable ever since!! Unfortunately I had been under a lot of stress up to that point & was severely malnourished. Had I not removed myself from the situation I was in at that time with the help of my love I probably would not have survived. Because I was sicker than myself or anyone knew. So Casper literally saved my life!! & I owe him a lot for all that he has done for me! He is a good man! & I am so blessed to have him in my life! We are actually working on buying a home of our own & hope to be moving by late Summer/early Fall!

Many ask me-"How did you do it?!" & my answer is:
I have cut my portions by more than half. I am eating "Lean, clean, & Green!" Eating lots of fresh fruits & vegetables. I eat chicken & fish. I eat only the leanest of red meats(93%+)these days. I don't eat much pastas & bread anymore. I've cut down on the processed foods & the takeout/eating out. I rarely have soda & I have only about 2-3 cups of coffee a day. I don't crave/ overindulge in sweets like some & for that I am thankful. I haven't given up things completely. I just learned more about moderation on the not so good things & focusing more on the foods that are good for me!

****************************************
ABOUT ME:

For those of you that know me I keep VERY! busy. I am all over the internet & I wear many hats. I have a lot of people that depend on me & I need to be healthy to be able to do all that I do...

As an Event Promoter/Manager/Agent/Marketing Rep/ Founder(since April 2007) I provide non-profit promotional assistance by helping musicians to promote their links & through recommendations as well as airplay on our online radio & TV stations. So I do a lot of networking through business & social networking sites. We also have a foundation/ musical movement geared toward child abuse awareness which is incorporated into our promotions company & as part of our ministry. I am an (ordained) reverend. I am a singer. We also have a LIVE!! online music room that we are currently retooling! This area is my focus.


I also share missing/ exploited posters & AMBER alerts via the internet,assisting authorities in solving cold cases,etc...

As if that were not enough I have several other projects going on like online studies to better my advocate/research specialist/ mediation work,etc.

In February 2014 I joined the events committee planning the founder's day carnival held the first weekend after Labor Day where I live. And in October 2015 I joined the revitalization committee for the town in which I live.

If you would like to know more about me-please feel free to add me here & please be sure to tell me how I know you! Thanx!:

    If you believe, truly believe to your core, that you can do this, you can. You absolutely can. Don’t be a doubter; be a doer.
