31 pounds

I have officially lost a toddler-or at least the equivalent of one. Since late December, I have dropped 31 pounds, 24 of which have been lost during the Fittest Loser contest.

That means, I have said goodbye to the 270s, 260s, 250s AND 240s. Woo HOO! I am in the 230s currently, by the skin of my teeth. I am also wearing size 16 pants! My capris from last summer were size 22. If all goes well, my capris THIS summer will be size 14! I am so happy to be seeing progress.

That said, I feel completely off this week. I’m hormonal, crabby, frustrated and tired. I’ve not been measuring like I should, sleeping like I should, or exercising quite as hard as I should. It’s time to get back on the wagon before it takes off without me.

I’m hoping to have some bridesmaid dress pictures within the next week. It’s still slightly tight around the chest area, but it fits completely in the stomach area! I definitely won’t need to buy a new dress, and I am thrilled about that!

So, true to this blog’s name, I am going to focus on the positive and get re-energized and re-dedicated STARTING THIS MINUTE. I am currently in last place, by one little pound, and I need to fight my way back! Wish me luck!


About Kristen K

My life has always been pretty darn fantastic--except for one thing: my weight. Not too long ago, I tipped the scale at 283 pounds. I'd gain some, lose some and gain some right back, and I was so frustrated. When I saw a notice for a Biggest Loser-style contest in my local paper, I applied on the spot and I felt like I won the lottery when I found out I was one of the five contestants chosen. We worked out four times a week with trainers and followed a clean eating diet, and my life completely transformed. I've lost more than 60 pounds and I'm feeling confidence for the first time in my life. I'm 29 years old with a great husband, a rewarding job, two adorable dogs and fantastic friends. Weight loss continues to be a struggle now that the contest has ended, but this time I know that I can do it and I'm fully committed. This blog has seved as an accountability tool as I journey from a happy, but fat, person to a happy and confident person. And for the first time in my life, I'm no longer putting it off until tomorrow. This time, I'm starting this minute.

    Great job Krisit! My scale isn’t reflecting I’ve been seeing with the measuring tape and how my clothes fit and that’s what matters. Look how far you’ve come and how much you’ve learned about yourself. I feel like a different person…..and I’m not always perfect, I have hard days and trials to overcome, but it feels good to be in charge! Keep up the good work!
