Hi. I'm Kristen. I'm 33, and ready to get my health and weight back on track. I've gained a lot of weight these last few years, putting me 100 lbs. overweight. I've wallowed in self pity and denial has been my best friend.
Then the other day I caught a glimpse of myself from the side in the mirror. It was a pivotal moment in my life. I could not believe how big my stomach was. I decided that 2016 would be the year I would start doing this for me!
It's funny how you can lie to yourself and pretend there isn't a problem. Even with the doctor telling me that if I don't get this fixed I WILL have diabetes, no question, I still buried my head in the sand and said, "That won't happen to me". My mom, my dad, and both of my grandmas have/had diabetes and heart disease. And the doctor is telling me I can reverse it, if I do it now.

The waiting and denial is over. This is my year. This is my now. I want my future to be one of health, fitness, and feeling good about myself.

"I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me." Phil. 4:13
