After getting SO VERY CLOSE to being cast on season 8, 9, and 10 of the hit reality
TV show, The Biggest Loser, I realized a lot of things about myself. The most important being, how much I desperately want and need this. "This" being a healthy, whole, functional body.

My blog is intended to help me get accountable. Accountable to EVERYONE, family, friends, complete strangers and ultimately MYSELF. I have over 400lbs to loose in order to gain the FABULOUS life I was born to lead!!

I am SO EXCITED, nervous, embarrassed and determined. I will REJOICE with you in my accomplishments and confess to you any "falling off the wagon" I might do. I encourage EVERYONE to get out there and tell your friends about this blog. The more people that read and comment, the more accountable I create for myself! This is one of the HUGE aspects I love about the show. I would NOT have let America down! Now I just have to create my OWN America!! Post your own accomplishments, encouragement, questions, doubts etc. This blog is here for you too! Let's get this ball rolling! WE GOT THIS!!

Day one starts with "Dollar Store Lettuce..." click that red link, and then scroll past this intro. :)

A good day!

Nothing terribly notable about today, except that it was another VICTORY!! Yeah Baby!!

No fast food!
No Soda!
Got my walk in!
124 ozs of water (24 of that was crystal lite)
ANNNNND... dah dah dah DAAAAAH...Got up 45 mins earlier than normal!!! YAY!
I didn't manage to put on makeup for work, but I DID manage to take a REALLY long and purposeful shower. It was nice to spend more than 10 mins RUSHING to get done and out of the house.

Breakfast: 1.5 english muffins with cream cheese and grape jelly
Snack: Snack Pack Chocolate Pudding. Mmmm
Lunch: Frozen MC Alfredo, veggies and a piece of garlic bread
Snack: Chips and salsa
Dinner: Foot long BMT from subway, Extra veggies
One oreo cakester, because it was sitting there on the table at the scrapbooking event, and I have always wanted to try one! lol

I didn't have to fight off any fast food cravings today, and I haven't really had a problem with quitting soda cold turkey. I HAVE been drinking one Crystal Lite: Energy a day. It has caffeine. But so far, so good on the soda and fast food goal. I am SHOCKED! But proud of myself.

NOT BAD!! :)

I just wanted to say THANK YOU! Thank you SO much to all of you who have come out in DROVES to support me in this endeavor. I have had people offering their support and great wishes via email, facebook, text and even here. Friends that I haven't seen or talked to in over 10 years, and perfect strangers that like me, that have tried out for TBL and not made it. EVEN Biggest Loser Contestants from seasons past (i am sooooo flattered!)!! I don't know if you will ever know how much it means to me. I wish I could show you. But all I can do is THANK YOU!! I will repay you by SUCCEEDING in losing and letting you watch the entire way!!!

This is a short post tonight. Time for bed. :) I was out late scrapbooking with my "Girls"! Oh how I love them!


  1. Great job Kristin! Every day there is some victory to celebrate. I'm very proud of you...especially with the soda!

    Marie :o)

  2. Hey... im glad you took my advice, the blog with help. Looks like you are off to a wonderful start. As far as the fried chicken, believe me, if I had a dollar for every time I got weak in the knees thinking about Popeyes.. I would be a rich man.

    When I get blogging again (Im starting June 1st) I will ad a link for you. Sorry I been unreachable, had a few things come up that had to have my full attention.

    Congrats Kristin... you took the first step.

    Kristin I love you! You make me laugh and you inspire me! I love your blog and your honesty in being accountable. Good job for having only one cakester last night, all that junk was staring right into my face and I was sorely tempted! I did finally give in to the Sun Chips, but managed to stop there. Victory for me too!

  4. Great job! Keep it up! You are motivating me through your posts.
