I’m Kaitlyn (top) and that’s my girlfriend Melissa (middle). We may have started our weight loss journeys separately, but now that we’re together, we’re each other’s biggest supporters! I’m sharing this joint photo, because I reached my highest weight (gaining almost 70 lbs in a year!) due to an unhealthy past relationship, so I want to stress how important it is to be with someone who supports your lifestyle and focus on health.
I began my journey almost two years ago, when I graduated from college. Since I started, I’ve lost over 50 lbs (51.5 lbs, to be exact!), and I have 14.5 lbs left to go until goal. I’ve been using both point tracking with Weight Watchers and calorie tracking with MyFitnessPal to track my food intake, and I’ve been focusing on working out at least 4 times per week.
I’m in my best and healthiest mindset ever right now, and I’m so excited to finish my journey in time for my Hawaii trip with Melissa this summer. I love to inspire people through my journey and create a network of others going through their journeys. My blog is all about health, fitness, weight loss, and body acceptance. I look forward to hearing from you and sharing in all the ups and downs that come with the weight loss process! <3
