I've been working on my weight loss for years now. I've tried every fad diet out there - most recently Plexus. I enjoyed Plexus, but I am not going to spend $150 a month for it. My husband lost a ton of weight a couple of years ago by switching to a Paleo style of eating. My likes and dislikes are so streamlined that it's hard for me to find foods that I can eat. I love salt, I love chocolate and well - I can put down a box of Mike and Ike's in no time flat. I also love cheese and crackers with milk....so, you can imagine - if I don't deprive myself, I get fat. I'm apparently not "fat enough" for diet pills from my Doctor though. Jerk. My MIL and SIL are taking Adipex, and my SIL has lost 15 lbs so far (since September). Hubby and I are doing a Whole 30 Challenge January 2016 and then converting it to a regular lifestyle. I will reintroduce some foods though to see if I can still have them once in awhile. But so far I'm loving the meals I'm creating. I made a Facebook Page just for this Challenge....so stop on by the page and say hi! I post all our meals with the recipe on the page and I even post other peoples recipes that I intend on trying. The page is Our Whole 30 Life - See you around!

Fitness Minutes: 65

My Goals:
Short term goal - Finish my brokers license so I can go back to work.
Long term goal - buy a house, hike the Ross Dam Trail without dying!

My Program:
Paleo. Making good food choices. Reading the ingredients list of everything before buying it. If it has added sugar and things I can't pronounce, I don't buy it. Eating whole foods - fresh foods, nothing processed or pasteurized. Exercise. Drinking at least 1/2 my body weight in ounces of water daily. Journal-ling about everything!

Personal Information:
Name: Kari
I live in Skagit County, and my husband and I own a small construction company - our focus is property maintenance and repair - slowly moving into helping investors flip houses. We are gun owners, enjoy shooting targets, hiking, camping, and singing. I side a lot with Republican issues, but am open minded enough to hear them all. I used to call myself Democrat - so...

Other Information:
I love writing. I always wanted to be a writer - creative writing, autobiographies, story telling etc. I probably have several blogs out there that I've forgotten passwords to. I don't write as often as I'd like though. Life gets in the way and I worry that if my family knew it was me - they would come down hard on me. I feel stifled often from my family.
