Why Another Blog?
Katie: Because I've been inspired by my friend Melissa and I have finally decided to do something about it. Because I finally believe it IS possible for me to get rid of my extra pudgy tummy. Because I'm the kind of person who feels social pressure and will do better if I know I'm reporting to all of you about what I eat and how much I weigh and what I'm doing to exercise. Because, let's be honest--I want to be skinny.
Kathy: Because I've been gradually doing the addition thing on the scale, and I'm embarrassed to admit it after working so hard to lose 30+ pounds a couple of years ago. It's time to start subtracting again, and I know it will help me to be accountable to someone besides the secret voices inside my head. I'm tickled to have Katie as a weight-loss buddy!
