I am a 30 year old woman. I have a wonderful career, a supportive and loving boyfriend, great friends and the best family. The only thing I am missing is really enjoying it all. My weight holds me back in all aspects of my life. I have been obese for most of my life. I have managed to lose weight successfully in the past using various diets and know that it is possible to do again. I am going to focus on improving my attitude and perspective towards food, exercise and other relationship issues. I need to maintain my focus on myself and my goal of living a healthy life. I'd love a buddy if anyone needs one. Good Luck and Let God Guide You.

Personal Information:
My name is Kate and I was born and raised in Wayne, NE. After graduating from Wayne State College with a BS in Chemistry I accepted a position with Cargill in Memphis, TN. I spent four years there before transferring to the Cargill facility in Blair, NE. It's good to be back in Nebraska with all my family and friends.

Other Information:
Anyone who knows me would know that I'm a hermit. I prefer to be inside the confines of my home with my boyfriend and my kitty family. I am uncomfortable in crowds and when I do venture out I prefer to have the dark seat in the corner where I can observe from. I want to be able to mingle - something I am extremely uncomfortable doing.

    Thank you SO much for the comment on my page today!!! It feels SO good to be an inspiration to someone out there! I haven't gone very far in my journey, but to know that SOMEONE is getting SOMETHING out of what I post, and what I go through, makes it all that much better!!!

    It does make sense to only live this healthy of a lifestyle! How could we have been avoiding that for so long? This is a GREAT lifestyle and I can't wait to continue LIVING it!!!

    You've lost 8 pounds! CONGRATS, GIRL! Keep up the GREAT work!!!!
