Lose to Win: Healthy for the Holidays (Day 1)

The weight loss contest officially starts today! There are four particpants: Melissa, Rachel, Sara and me.

Typically I will post results from the four of us, along with some progress pictures and a more detailed account about how my week went. Today, I am dashing off for a trip to Wisconsin, so my starting results post won’t be until Monday (P.S. Don’t rob me: The house will still be occupied with people and two large dogs.)

I do have my starting weight to post today, though–and I am not happy. At all.

It’s 231.

Yes, that is a THREE in the place that held a ONE just three-and-a-half months ago. I am soooo angry at myself for letting my progress go to waste. It’s disrespectful to the trainers who dedicated their time and energy to me, and it’s disrespectful to myself.

But I will vow right here and now that I will never see a “3” in that position on the scale again–unless, miraculously, I get into the 130s!


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.
