Hi, I'm Kimb. (The "b" is silent.)

My family's cursed. I'm convinced that 100 years ago, one of my ancestors did something stupid like steal a witch doctor's goat and now we have to pay the price. We have a lot of medical problems. I won't lie, it scares me. So, I've decided to do what I can now to give my future self a fighting chance.

Each step I take, each new challenge I try to overcome: I do it for me. The Future Me.

My weight history:

Was slightly over weight through high school with the exception of a brief period where I lost 20lbs from swimming.

At college, in addition to the freshman fifteen, I got the sophomore thirty-four.

Senior year, I appealed to my doctor to help me lose weight and he put me on the South Beach diet. I started at 213 pounds and ended with 170.

Last year, I braved the scale and found that I was the heaviest I ever was: 225lbs.

November 1st: started a more relaxed version of the South Beach Diet, weight 222lbs

December 21st: started taking deep water classes at the YMCA, weight 205lbs

January 21st: joined sparkpeople, weight 200lbs

February 25th: started the Biggest Loser Challenge on SP on the Silver Star team (Go Silver Stars!), weight 195lbs

May 6th: Finished the BL Spring challenge, 182 lbs

May 27th: Started the Biggest Loser Summer Challenge, GO SASSY SILVER STARS!!!, weight 181 lbs

August 5th: Finished BL Summer Challenge, 170 lbs
