Dear Readers:  


Welcome to K Jackson Books! 


Your one-stop shopping for all books written by K. Jackson.  Single Mom. Writer. Traveler (23 states and counting). Old-fashioned (love Motown and 70's music). 


My goal is to encourage us all to get healthier.  For me the turning point was several years ago, when my doctor told me I was on the cusp of diabetes!  I vowed then that my attitude would be governed by one mantra - Now Healthier!  Not tomorrow or this afternoon or next week.  


Now Healthier! With that thought, I strived to lose 63 pounds.  I didn't make it.

 

I LOST 50 POUNDS!  Yeah!


But that didn't last.  Five years later I'm starting my journey again!


Now Healthier - Day 1.  Again.


​Who's with me?

Writing this book has been a very essential part of my recovery.  Putting my own experiences down on paper gave me a chance to not only relive the experience and face the uncertainties, but to understand my motivation for doing it.  Writing this book was an emotional lifeline for me and it’s been a wonderful outlet.

Where else could I have expressed the joy of going from a size 22 to 16 in two months?  Since no one knew I had the surgery, this book was the one place where I could shout it and rejoice.

This book was also written with others in mind.  There may be those who felt as I did.  They’ve secretly dreamed of undergoing the procedure because they were just as unhappy with certain aspects of their bodies as I was.  They’ve squirreled away some money in the hopes that one day they might also take the next step.  There are also those who have already taken that step.  

I hope my words help someone else who’s alone with their thoughts and pain as I’ve been, give them a much needed mental hug, and let them know that someone else had undergone what they are considering or are now enduring.  At those times, when I was most vulnerable, I kept telling myself that there would be people reading my words and saying to themselves, "This is normal. Kathyne went through this too, so I won’t worry."

Am I am glad I did it?  Would I do it again?

​These are poems about love, from my time as a geeky teenager to a 20-something, single parent.  I went from not knowing anything about love, to being in love, losing love, not knowing what love was.


Then I learned about the love of a parent, love of a friend, and then loving me.  I reinventing myself to accept love again.  

All women have gone through their own stages of love, joy and heartbreak and that's why I've dedicated this book to all of us.  Join me in sharing the pain of yesterdays and dreaming of hopes for our tomorrows.

​This is my personal memoir of my journey to lose weight - 63 pounds - and the struggles I endured along the way.

Like everyone else, I was on the yo-yo trail to unhealthiness. I would play at losing 10 pounds and then gain 15 back, complaining all the way.  Then I’d get discouraged and eat more ice cream and chocolate and filling my plate for my third serving while hating myself for being so weak.  I’d walk for three days and then would give up because on day four it rained.  I’d purchased a stationary bike and a stepper, and then use them as clothes racks.  


I'd even go so far as to drive to the high school track and snack on junk food while I watch the other people run, wishing I didn't feel so big and unattractive in my sweat pans and XXL T-shirt.  How could I leave the car and walk with them?


I continued to watch my weight climb to over 200 pounds. But nothing helped, so I stopped trying.  Then one day my doctor told me that I had to get healthy, that if I didn’t start taking care of my weight, if I didn’t become serious about my cholesterol levels, I was in trouble.  I was on the cusp of developing diabetes. That scared me so much that I finally made the conscious decision to get healthy.

I didn’t lose the 63 pounds, but I came close.  I LOST 50 POUNDS!!

It was the longest 13 months of my life.
