Losing It In Chicago

This is my goodbye post.

I realized I had a lot of baggage with this blog. I had my happiest moments–losing 47 pounds on the Fittest Loser–and I also had so many bumps and struggles and gains, and it got me down. I want a fresh start, with a fresh blog and a fresh outlook.

My goal is to create a more organized and well-designed blog to help keep me accountable and motivated. It is much easier (and cheaper) to find designers for Blogger, and it would be too time-consuming to go back through all these old posts and categorize them.

Thus, I’ve started a new blog using Blogger, at www.losingitinchicago.com. I am very excited to start my new journey and I hope you will join me there. I’ll be hosting a giveaway next week to celebrate the new blog–a free entry to the Pretty Muddy 5K. And beginning in a couple of weeks, Kendra at Key Lime Digital Designs will be creating a fresh new look for the site.

I am ready to really take the reins of my life and do this now. I want to be healthy and fit and energetic. And I also really want to be a mom. I know I can do this–and I will.

I hope to see you over at my new blog!


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.
