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. :)

Jillian came to my door!! the form of a book! :)

I am so excited! I got the book Jillian sent to me "Winning by Losing" I have already dog-eared and marked up the first few chapters. It is a surprisingly easy read and makes A LOT of sense!! She even signed it, of course I cried a bit. It was just so freeing! I am officially a dork now. :)

So! Today was a good day! I probably didn't eat ENOUGH. I had chicken salad and Ritz like 3 times. I know I needed fruit, but I have -$2 in my bank account and had to eat what I had on hand. I did go for a WONDERFUL 40 minute walk around our pond here in our subdivision. I resisted and resisted....I haven't wanted to do something SO much for a long, long time. I knew I HAD to, thank goodness I had the support of my friend of 38 years....Brandy. If it hadn't been for her and her skinny butt, I would have sat on the couch in a coma until Jordan came home. But because of her, AND my ability to reach SUPER deep down and start this exercise crap, I am sitting here with TONS of energy and adrenaline flowing through my viens. Boy does it feel good!

We are going again tomorrow. :)

Again, TONS of water today. I did break down and had a sunkist. But only half. SO I am not beating myself up. I negotiated with my mother today, that if I lose 10 lbs every three weeks, she will pay for me to get my nails done! YAY!! THAT'S some short term incentive right there!! So I have to loose 10lbs this weekend at weight wathchers, Momma needs to get her nails done next week!! :)

I am heading out to read more of Jill's book! Tomorrow will be about what I have learned from her book and any new goals/incentives etc I have set for myself!!



  1. Great job today Kristin! I don't think you're a dork...just motivated and inspired! :o)

  2. I'm loving the blog - it's so cute and fun and YOU! Good luck sweetcheeks; I know you can do anything you want!

  3. YEAHHH!!! Now, remember that feeling of energy when you do not want to walk next time. Maybe at Midnight on Srapbooking nights we should take a walk. That way you will regain your energy.HAHAHA Don't forget the Swapmeet at the church tomorrow from about 9:30 to 12. I would think. I will be there at 9 to unload my crap. Have a good night.

  4. ...i was totally about to get jealous. :) I thought she PHYSICALLY showed up at your door. Have a good weekend. God Bless!
