Hi, my name is Kristie and I have been a member of spark people for some time, but have failed to utalize the site until now. I have decided to jump back in that overly sized saddle and start a new journey to healthy living. I have struggled with my weight my entire life and I use to blame that on the 1 man in my life who use to pile my plate when I was a kid and force me to either eat it all or go to bed hungry; but now I realize that it has long been my burden to carry. I am the one who has to change it; for me. No one else can make me do this or help me do this but myself. So wish me luck!!

Member Since: 1/23/2008

Fitness Minutes: 3,700

My Goals:
To give my self credit for trying, even if i fail.

To stop calling myself all the names that I would never want a stranger to call me.

To journal more.

To start living instead of hiding.

My Program:
My program is simple. Start with small steps and take it one day at a time. I am not perfect and I don't expect this journey to be. Afterall, being fat for 30 years of my 35; I am bound to make mistakes. It's getting past that, that is what counts.

Personal Information:
I am from Berwick, Pennsylvania. I am a mother of a 17 yr. old; I enjoy talking to new people, and hanging out with my friends.

I have been heavy all my life, well I was skinny up until I turned 5; then it all went down hill from there. I use to blame my bad eating habits on my x-step father who use to fill our plates and demand that we eat or go to bed hungry. But I realize as an adult that I am now the one controlling my own mouth; my own plate. He has been out of my life for many years; I can't continue to blame him. I need to take control of my life and stop giving in to my addiction. And that is what it is, an addiction to food. It will be difficult changing the only way I have ever known for so many years; but I am worth so much more. I can do this; I have to.

Other Information:
If you want to chat I am on yahoo and aol. My screen names are:
yahoo: chiapapia
aol: krsNdre4ever

Just let me know u are from spark people when you add me, so i know not to delete you. LOL
