About

Hi there, thanks for checking out my blog!  My name is Kim, I’m 37 years old and I live in Ormond Beach, Florida (just north of Daytona) with my boyfriend Dane.  I started this blog to document my WLJ (weight loss journey).  I will try my best to post pictures of the food I eat along with my workouts.  I have a love/hate relationship with running but I’m trying to turn it into a loving relationship. 😉  I’m currently plugging away at the Ease into 5k program.


Dane and me – December 2011

Since March 2011, I’ve been trying to lose weight.  I joined Weight Watchers  in May and only went to meetings until July.  I tried to follow the program online for several months, but didn’t have much success.  I feel like I need the meetings to keep me motivated, so I just recently went back. My goal is to live a healthier life while still enjoying the finer things in life. (like food and beer!)

I wasn’t an overweight child or even a teenager.  I was always involved in sports, whether it be basketball, volleyball or softball.  The weight didn’t start to pile on until the age of 20 when a few too many way too many beers and a very unhealthy diet became a way of life.

In March 2011, I weighed in at 200.6.  I had never seen a number starting in “2” before and I vowed to never see it again.

That’s me on the left in January 2011. (200 lbs)

Me – October, 2011. 25 lbs gone.

Join me as I attempt to kick some of the bad habits and incorporate better, more healthy ones into my life.
