Picturing Success

I didn’t go see my mom. I am going tonight instead. I had a really late lunch and did not want to eat again 2 hours later.  Last night was fairly uneventful as usual. I ended up having a veggie sandwich for dinner because Dave had to attend a function at Round Table for his granddaughter. I did not exercise and I was in bed by 9:00 p.m. I was super tired so I decided to crash early. I am feeling like I am coming down with a cold.

I wanted to share a blog with you that I discovered about a month or two ago. It is called Laura Gets Fit. Laura lives in Northern California like me AND has a boyfriend named Dave. She has lost 125 lbs. and was featured in the November issue of Shape magazine. It is always helpful for me to read success stories and this hit home more because I feel like I know Laura through reading her blog. She is still hoping to lose another 25 lbs or so. Go check out her blog when you have a chance, you won't be sorry!

Reading that article makes ME want to be a success story. Whether it is Shape Magazine or another publication, I really would like to be featured as a success story. I am a long way off for sure but it keeps the inner flame burning to get this weight off once and for all. One of my ultimate goals is to be able to talk to other overweight people and tell them it can be done at ANY time and at ANY age. Sure, I wish I had done this years ago but I can't go back and change the past. All I can do is push forward and make it happen. Until next time...


  1. Thanks for sharing Laura's blog. I'll go check it out.

    BTW, I'm back at Operation Stick To It and am reconnecting with old blogs I used to correspond with!


  2. Hey Katie-I will check out that blog-thanks for sharing~

  3. Wouldn't that be cool? You can so be in a magazine...can't wait to see it!

  4. Thanks for the link.

    I think it would be AMAZING for you to be in magazine. I would totally buy it ! You are an inspiration !

  5. I just found your blog today, and I like it. I'll be back.

  6. Maybe you should start writing that article now. Write you you'll have to do and then stick to it like glue. You've already got a head start with what you've lost. Good luck on your journey.


  7. I am so with you Katie! When I started blogging back in 2008, I only had 30 pounds to lose. I thought I would blog my food and exercise to make me accountable and wahlah! the weight would come right off of me.

    That was 2 years ago and I am now 10 pounds heavier!

    We need to prove that just because you are in your 40's, doesn't mean we have to settle.

    We can do this!

  8. You'll get there, Katie. Then we'll be reading YOUR success story in some fancy magazine. :)

  9. I believe you already ARE a success story. Your story just isn't finished yet :)

  10. Right now, I'm just trying not to be a failure story. I'm on the skids...

    You stay strong for us both, girlfriend.


  11. Katie I know you can do this. I will check out the blog, I read your last post and I am so so happy for you about not having to take insulin. that is amazing progress, you should be very very proud of yourself. keep up the excellent work. you are a success story waiting to be published... hugs

  12. I love how you say PUSH FORWARD AND MAKE IT HAPPEN.
    this is 100% it for me in all arenas of my life.
    getting up every morning and deciding to, again, keeeep pushing forward.


  13. You can do it Katie, no doubt about it! And Im seriously thinking you need to sell me Phoebe! How cute is she? Heading over now to read Laura's blog!
