My story

Rachel at The Faithful City Mouse recently asked me to share my weight loss journey in a guest post on her blog. It published today, and I was reading it over, I realized it’s the first time I’ve told my story all in one place. It makes me so happy to think of how much I’ve changed (physically and emotionally) in less than a year–and re-motivates me to keep going. Thanks, Rachel!

This reminds me that I’d really like to start featuring other people’s stories on my blog. I want this to be a place where we can share the goals and dreams we accomplished, and help others do the same. If you have a story you’d like to share about any kind of dream or goal you’ve achieved (or are working to achieve), please contact me at or leave a comment here!


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.

    I just read your blog post on Rachel’s blog! It is definitely a journey and it’s crazy how one little thing can change our mindset. For you it was a bridesmaids dress…. Do you ever wonder … if it weren’t for that dress where you would be today?! It’s crazy to think how something so small can change our lives!
