Tracking: Sisters, Katieo and Molly
Niche: Two sisters blogging about our weight together
Health goal: We both would like to wear a size 6. (Neither of us ever have!) I know, not exactly a "health" goal, but we've got other aspirations that help us out along the way, like running races, eating clean, and being silly.
Katieo and Molly's story:
We’re just a couple of sisters blogging about fitness
together. At first, we started writing just to keep each other accountable. The
blog has turned into an outlet for our silliness, a place for our ridiculous
gym stories like crazy spin teachers and Lindsey Lohan sightings, a place to vent our frustrations about exercising with young kids, or trying to cook well-balanced meals on a budget.
We can also be found complaining about husbands who love to bake, and sisters-in-law who have unreal metabolisms. We’ve had our share of heartbreaks too: the death of a close friend and unexpected family and health issues. So much of our story about our journey to be smaller isn’t even about the weight, or becoming a size six.
So, what is it about then you ask…
...when life happens, flexibility and forgiveness go a long way ...
It’s about a place to share our fitness goals gain and give support, and reminds us to never stop caring enough about ourselves to take care of our bodies.
So far, I (Katie) have lost all of my post-partum weight, and then some. I’m now focusing on running a couple of big races this spring and summer as well as increasing my strength training. Molly, facing many challenges outside of weight loss is just now getting back on track and is doing Weight Watchers again and going to the gym faithfully.
I’d say one of the most important things we’ve learned is that when life happens, flexibility and forgiveness go a long way. And, if we’re really going to do this for the long haul, we can’t ever give up.
"Two Sisters, One Mission: a Size 6."
Is the 6 obsolete? Nah, we’ll throw a big party if we ever get there. And if we don’t, we’ll throw a big party anyway: with lots of cake.

What one thing you would like more help with:
We're curious how people fit in their veggies. We could really use any tips on upping our veggie/greens consumption from anything like pre-pack for work or toss veggies in salads. etc. Any tips?
