"Don't Let The Fear Of Striking Out, Keep You From Playing The Game"

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all doing well. I know it has been a while since my last post but I have had an emotional roller coaster lately. Let's see where should I begin...

First, As you may notice I changed the name of my blog to Kelly's Journey. Seemed more fitting for right now. I may change it again who knows. I just finished my new logo! I am trying to figure out how to work with images on blogger so bare with me until I have this all figured out.

My grandfather, (my dad's dad) passed away last Thursday. He lived in Sharon, TN (close to Martin, TN). I was more upset than I thought I would have been. It had been 6-7 years the last time I saw my grandparents on my dad's side. Unfortunately Paw-Paw was sick with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. It hit him fast. I only wish I got to visit him before he passed. I know he would have loved to see his grandchildren again. I have never really been close to my dad's side of the family. It has just been a hard road the past couple of years and that is all I will say about that right now. But I do know my grandpa is looking down on us from heaven.

Well on a more positive note... I have lost 21.6 pounds! I am extremely proud of myself! I know it may not seem like a lot in 10 weeks but I would rather lose slowly and steadily than fast. Because if you lose weight fast you will gain it back and it just becomes a vicious cycle. Why be a yo-yo dieter your whole life, when you can make a lifestyle change and be happy/healthy?

I have realized a lot about myself over the past couple of weeks. I never thought I would be able to do this. I was so unhappy with myself. I am just so proud of what I have accomplished this far. I can only imagine what the future holds for me! I am ready to take the world on!

So as you know I am moving to Nashville very very soon. I needed to save up some money so I am doing WW online right now for the month. It is about $15 a month. So far so good. I do miss my monday meetings. Those women were amazing and a great support system. Luckily I still have my friends and family to support me! Once I get settled in Nashville, I want to check out the meetings there. If anyone knows of a good one in Nashville, let me know! Oh, and my uncle even signed up for WW! I am so happy he is making this change as well! He has been doing great so far! Congrats Uncle Mike!

Now I need your help! I want to start putting more recipes on my blog. I want to take your favorite dishes and turn them around to make them healthy!

Maybe if I get enough help, there might be a little giveaway! Start thinking and let me know!!


  1. I like soup recipes. There use to be a country potatoe soup I ate that was a ww recipe. I will see if I can find it!! Hugs and a big high five on your success. So proud. It will be one of the hardest things you might do in your life but you deserve it and you will DO IT!!
