Well, I am Katelyn. I am 5'5 and have so far lost 62 pounds, but still have a small journey ahead. In September of 2008, I went to the doctor and had extremely high blood pressure, as well as being border line for Diabetes. My father has 7 brothers and sisters, all of them, including my Dad has Type 2 Diabetes. That scared me to death.

Since then, I have lost 62 pounds. I started my journey then at 214 pounds (I joined weight watchers). I gave up doing weight watchers because it was getting expensive, and I believe I have the tools now to do this on my own. Since starting the process of losing weight and changing my life, I have gotten healthy (the healthiest I have ever been), met an amazing man I plan on marrying, had my gall bladder removed (which was more than likely caused by my over eating for years), and will now be moving to a new state!

I am moving to Columbus, Ohio before the end of January from Northern Virginia, where I have been my entire life. I hope to find a job, meet new Columbus friends, and continue my weight loss journey :)

I hope to reach my weight goal of 135 by May 2010 :) This site is helping!

    Hi Katelyn! Your weight loss journey is truly inspiring! Way to go!

    How are you liking Columbus so far? I moved here about 1 year and a half ago, and I didn't know a single person. It was definitely a little scary! I've now met a few friends, and my boyfriend last summer. The city is great...always something to do!

    I think I know where you are living; Alexander Square, no? Or is Kenyon Square? I know where both are ^_^ Since you had mentioned Worthington Mall, I suggested First Watch because there is a nice one at Worthington Mall. If you'd rather head over to Polaris, there's lots of other places to pick from! So just let me know!

    I'd say our healthiest option would be First Watch:

    Everyone else I keep looking at are pubs :P And my favorite restaurant in Worthington is only open for dinner. But First Watch is in the mall, so if you haven't made it there by Wednesday, we'll be able to walk about. It is an older mall; it's honestly the only one still left from my childhood. It's very pretty, but it has seen better days. Still some really great stores though!! Would 11 be too early for you? It could be more a brunch ^_^ I'm excited!!!

    If you're by Worthington Mall, you're not even 15 minutes away ^_^
    I would love to do lunch next week! My schedule is still very open, so let me know what day looks good. I'm also a super crazy clean organizer person if you start to feel overwhelmed packing! Unpacking is my favorite thing about moving. Finding a new place for everything, so fun! Let me know what type(s) of food you like, so I can think of some restaurants for us to pick from! See you next week!!! Yay!!!!
