“When life gives you lemons, make lemonade“
Who is behind the Pound Dropper?
Hi, my name is Lindsay Kehl. You can call me Linds. I’m the CEO of thepounddropper.com, a recipe developer, who has a passion for re-creating classic recipes into lightened up dishes! I’m happily married and have three beautiful children. I started weight watchers for the first time at the age of 20. I had just been diagnosed with a rare blood disease called Aplastic Anemia, which causes the bone marrow to shut down. It required the same treatment plan as Leukemia, a bone marrow transplant to survive.
Going through Chemotherapy:
I endured harsh amounts of chemotherapy & lost all my hair. I ended up gaining over 60 pounds from all the medication (not to mention I was already 40 pounds overweight.) You could say I hit an all time low in my life. I was depressed, unconfident and just down right uncomfortable with myself. That is when my mom encouraged me to join weight watchers with her. I was skeptical at first. However, I decided I would give it a chance. I ended up losing 75 pounds in 9 months (although I never hit my goal wight or “Lifetime.” I was able to keep it off until I got married and had my first child.
During each pregnancy, I gained an average of 65-75 pounds, and I would re-start my weight loss journey after each pregnancy. I was able to get down to my pre-pregnancy weight but I never did reach my goal weight. After my last baby was born, which was in April 2015, I promised myself that I was going to go all the way. I was going to hit goal. I lost 50 pounds in 5 months, and after that I ended up taking a few months off from tracking. I was content with the weight I was at.
Then in January 2017, I woke up one morning and decided to recommit myself to the journey. I started weight watchers online and made a commitment to myself, that no matter how long it took me, I was going to get to my “lifetime” goal weight. It took me just over 2 ½ years to lose over 93 pounds and to hit my goal weight-since hitting my goal-the journey hasn’t ended. This journey is life long and never ends! That means it’s not linear but has it’s up and downs!
