Hi there! My name is Katie. I've been married to my husband for 11 years, and get to stay home with my 4 kids. I enjoy sports of all kinds and am chomping at the bit to get more hiking in now that the summer weather is here to stay. And I have those same pesky 10 pounds that I can't quite seem to get rid of!
When I hit Jr high, I quit any kind of organized sport and filled my time experimenting with lots of different recipes to come up with the ultimate chocolate chip cookie recipe! It resulted in some killer cookies and a chubby 8th grader! Making the high school soccer team in 9th grade reversed things for me and I lost the extra weight and gained back some self confidence. I look back now and realize just how tough of a time Jr high is without that extra burden and wouldn't wish it on anyone. It's been a little up and down with the weight since then.
After my 4th, I was 20 pounds overweight and was motivated around her first birthday to lose a little over 10 pounds but this last year has felt a bit like a hamster in his wheel. Exercising fairly regularly, but not religiously and eating healthy to start off with all the best intentions but going down hill as the day goes on. This basically just has kept me at the same starting point each day! Hamster in my own little wheel! I'm ready to kick it to the curb and break through and emerge a happier, healthier me. Can't wait to join in on your journey!
