i received a free training session at my gym i just joined, i think the trainer at my gym saw me two weeks before christmas this year. she told me i should lose 15 lbs in order to be in the ideal healthy BMI range. so i guess this is where i start my journey...

my name is kristin, and i have been on SP since Jan 2008. Since being on SP i have lost 30 lbs, gained back 10 (such a pain), and now am back on the bandwagon i intend to lose the last 15-20 that i really need to lose in order to be a healthier, happier person. SP has taught me a lot and really is a resource that i am happy it exists. 2009 was really tough on me (losing my job, being unemployed for a bit, gaining weight back). but 2010 will be great, i know it!

as for me, i love to cook! i try try try to cook mostly meat-free. not saying i'm a vegetarian of sorts, i just really like cooking that way, plus love the way i feel when i eat that way. but my boyfriend is a meat eater so i'm not opposed to cooking with meat. i try a lot of new recipes and i love it. i love to cook clean and fresh.

good luck to everyone with their journeys! feel free to leave me comments and everything!
