About Me

Hi! My name is Amanda and I’m a 30 year old girl from Minnesota. After a lifetime of being the chubby, big boned, and downright fat kid, I’ve finally come to the realization that the dream life I’ve always wanted (kids, lifelong man-friend, picket fence, couture wardrobe, and the list goes on) isn’t just going to be handed to me. I have to create it for myself. I have to make it and, in some instances, re-make it, from the ground up. And it all starts with finally losing the weight and getting healthy.

March 2012: just getting started...

Along the way, I’ll share my triumphs and struggles, tips and yummy recipes, and a few of my favorite things that help sweeten the journey. I’ll also be posting my progress so you can shower me with congratulatory gifts (or at least a comment or two).

This is Manda Kay. Making it. Finally.

  1. I just wanted to say! You are doing great! I also live in MN and in the same boat for the most part. I am trying to loose about 50% of my body weight too. Great job keep it up. If you ever want an email buddy just contact me.

    • Thanks, Lane! I might just take you up on that offer–we’ve gotta stick together and support each other. Best of luck to you on your journey! Be sure to check back and let me know how it’s going!

  2. I’m very happy I found this blog. You’re an awesome, strong woman, props to you! I decided to do weight watchers last year and I lost 35 lbs and started exercising regularly (something I didn’t think I’d ever be able to do). Best of luck on your journey, you can really do anything 🙂

    • Thank you, what a sweet comment! Props to YOU, too! I hope you’ll follow along with me and share your tips and tricks. PS loving your blog, too!

  3. I am so excited that we are friends on MFP, because your blog is a great inspiration. I am just starting out in the weightloss journey and some of your posts are amazing. I read No Sex in the City, all this time I thought I was the only one that felt like this. I am not actively looking for someone to share my life with and realize the only way to find the man of my dreams is to make myself the woman of my dreams. I will definitely be following you!!!

    • Carri you’re so sweet–thank you! I was reading your profile on MFP and was thinking the same thing about you–this girl is just like me! Glad to have your support, and you’ve definitely got mine. Hope to see you on the blog again! 🙂
