About

I am the not so proud owner of a collection of before pictures that are just a timeline of me getting fatter each year! My goal is to have a successful after picture this year! I will be attempting to lose weight and will be blogging about my adventures. It should prove to be a comical journey as I am a firm believer that life is better when you are laughing. My hope for this blog is to encourage others (whether it be with weight loss or another obstacle being faced) via laughter, sarcasm, and a whole lot of Jesus! I hope this site puts a smile on your face and leaves you feeling inspired. Thanks for stopping by!

How did you get the name Kim is Awesome?

View of dashboard

Kim is Awesome is a long running joke between my husband and I from when we were first married. I jokingly put my name as KimIsAwesome during a highly competitive game of Wii Sports tennis.  Before every competition, the screen would say, “KimIsAwesome vs. John.”  I found this to be so amusing, I continued to put my name as KimIsAwesome for all future games where I was against my husband (e.g., Trivia night at Buffalo Wild Wings where the whole restaurant could see “John vs. KimIsAwesome” on a television screen).   Fast forward to when Bluetooth first came out. My husband and I were trying to figure out whose phone was connected to a Bluetooth device as both of our phones showed up as a series of numbers. My solution? I named my phone KimIsAwesome. Problem solved.  The best part of calling my phone KimIsAwesome? My dashboard now has KimIsAwesome across it when I connect my phone. When I told my friends I was thinking about taking the plunge and blogging, most of them rooted for KimIsAwesome to be the name. 

Who is Kim anyway?

Hi, I am Kim.

Let me go ahead and introduce myself. Cue an internet handshake.

Hi, my name is Kim. Most people I know describe me as being witty, outgoing, and having a unique perspective on life. I married my college sweetheart in 2005, and we have 3 children.
