The journey of losing pounds but gaining so much more


Hi, I’m Kelly but most people call me KJ. I am a 27 year old student, artist, blogger, and online business owner. I live in New Hampshire with my wonderful boyfriend  Tim, our dog Tulley and our cat TJ.

Before and After

About 4 years ago, I topped the scale at 291 pounds! Since then, I have lost a total of 110 pounds but gained a whole new outlook on life, and myself. Going through the struggles of being a fat kid my whole life, and being able to overcome that is one of the greatest feelings in the world. I corrected a lifetime of horrid eating habits, and I know I can help others do the same. I am going to school to receive my BS in Dietetics in efforts to become a Registered Dietitian to do exactly that.

I am a true believer that you can accomplish anything if you are determined, and know when to ask for help when you need it. I am here to give you any help you made need to change your life for the better. I know exactly what you are feeling because I’ve been there myself. I will be posting a variety of blog posts educating you on the importance of nutrition, and the importance of staying active. I also will do something I feel that more people in my industry should do. I am going to talk about my own struggles with food, and the emotional issues that can create our unhealthy relationship with food.

I also had to re-teach myself how to cook in a healthy way. I have always loved to cook, every since I was a kid. But when I made the decision to change my lifestyle into a healthier one, I had to tweak some of my favorite recipes and teach myself some new ones. I am firm believer that you still should be able to enjoy food. Food should be delicious, and nutritious at the same time. I will be posting recipes that are just that..absolutely delicious but good for you too!

So please if you are struggling with weight loss or just have no clue where to start, please email me at I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have or just to say hi. I would love to hear from you!
