Welcome to my blog!
My name is Kitty and this blog is about my weight loss and self-improvement adventure. I am a regained lifetime member of Weight Watchers who started this blog determined to get to my goal weight. I finally got back to my goal weight in July, 2015.
I live with my husband and one of our three kids (one is away at college and the third is grown and out on his own), and assorted pets. My husband attends Weight Watchers with me and reached his goal weight and got to lifetime in mid-2014.
But, this blog is not only about weight loss. A leader at the meeting I used to attend often says at the end of meetings, “Be blessed. Be empowered. And, we’ll see less of each other next week.” And, that is what gave me the idea for the name of this website. At first I thought of calling it “Less of Me.” However, I realized that I didn’t just want there to be less of me. I wanted it to be less of a better me. I want to improve myself while I’m losing weight. I want to eat healthier now. I want to increase my physical activity now. I want to focus on becoming a better me, just less of a better me.
Here is the link to the four parts of my weight history story:
For the short version….I became a lifetime member of Weight Watchers a long, long time ago. Then, I got married. And, between trying to eat as much as my husband and pregnancy, I regained and weighed more than I started at. My high weight was 207.4 pounds. I went back to Weight Watchers off and on and didn’t get anywhere. Finally, I did and lost down to 160 (end of 2011). Then, we moved and things were hectic and I regained about 37 pounds. But, I got back on track and got to my goal weight of 146 pounds in July, 2015. While glad to be at a normal BMI, my body fat is still high so I am working on reducing body fat. I am doing that partly through what I eat (still trying to lose fat) and partly through working on building more muscle through strength training. And, I’m overall working on eating healthier foods.
