My Story...

{Preface} I never thought I would do this. I never thought that I would share my journey from Fat Bird to Kat Bird. But, here I am. I need to share a little long and drawn out story. Tina (my mother) weighs 95 lbs sopping wet and has always been mortified to have two fat daughters. Oh yea, I said it we are both F.A.T. Around the 5th grade when I starting gaining weight ironically(not at all) this is the same time that the parents are getting the Big D and we are moving from a town we lived in our whole lives to a major city where we know noone, never mind we ate frozen dinners and fast food. She began making "inspiration boards" with skinny models and how I "should" look. That is alot for a pre-teen to take.
Fast forward to college Tina would pay for gym memberships, over text books, nutri-system over sorority dues, bribe me with new clothes if I lost weight. Yes, it was all quit sick. I took advantage of it everytime. I still am heck she is paying for my 1st visit to the Medical Weight Loss! (Don't judge me she's nuts and totally screwed me up! I deserve it!)
I am heavier now than when I was 9 mos preggers with baby j. By the way he is 2 1/2 now I the best thing ever. (gotta give my boy a shout out) Promise not to blah, blah, blah about the boy except when something super funny happens. Or when it ties directly in with my journey. 
I can't make any promises on how this is going to go. All I can say is that I am serious. This is the LAST diet life changing, new way of eating, journey to who knows where I am ever going to do.
Will you JOIN ME?

I have read your posts from today until your beginning. Backwards I know. Anyways, I will be watching you and see how this all goes. So far it sounds like you are doing wonderfully and I'm proud of you. I too am on a life style change but doing it the old fashion way, diet and exercise. It's hard especially being home with daycare kids all day. But I'm working on it. If you want to read about it go to and to learn about my life I have an every day blog at

Take care and God Bless!!!
