About Kat


Nine might be a bit of an understatement when referring to my dieting lives. I have tried just about everything short of starvation. I’ve done low-cal, low-fat, low-carb. I’ve taken pills that made my heart race, stopped eating after 6pm, and even made an attempt at the Master Cleanse. I didn’t even make it 24 hours on that one. I have joined gyms, bought exercise videos, and tried my best to be a runner. The point is, I feel like I have tried it all and I may have a little insight to offer others walking along this same path.

Why 9 lives? Well, for one, my nickname is Kat. It just works! Second, I feel like this is my last chance… my 9th life. I am 26 years old and feel like I am wasting away some of the best years of my life in a body that doesn’t really belong to me. And finally, with a nod to the Buddhists, the 9th consciousness is enlightenment, nirvana. Isn’t that where we’d all like to be in all aspects of our life?

So, I invite you to join me as I make the journey through my 9th life and to my 9th life! I hope to offer a little inspiration and motivation along the way.

UPDATE 12/30/11: After a 2+ year journey to lose 35 pounds, I have gained back almost 27 of them. It’s hard for me to believe, since I never thought I would be “this weight” again after working so hard to lose it the first time around. The good news is that I KNOW what I have to do to get back to where I need to be. AND I’m jumping back on the bandwagon. It’s not about how many times you fail, but how many times you get back up 🙂
