Hello! My name is Kristen, but feel free to call me Kris. I'm 23 and I live in Tennessee. As far as me, I'm a pretty simple girl. I love anything music and art. I have had a camera in my hand since I was 6 years old and will probably take a camera with me to my grave. I am a photoshop junkie(although I'm terrible at it--LOL). I find it fun to manipulate what looks like a normal picture into a piece of art. I have the cutest dog in the world--his name is Titan, and he is a yorkie. I am currently a college student on a mission to get my RN, BSN and then finally finish up with a CRNA. :)

As far as SparkPeople--I've been here for a while, but it is time for me to start over. I have strayed too far from my original goal and I just need a fresh start. I want to lose around 130 pounds, and would like to do it within the next two years.

I have a pretty amazing life filled with some pretty amazing people, but those people don't seem to "support" me losing weight. When I say support what I mean is, they accept me for how I currently am and don't want me to change. Al I hear is "you look great! Don't change a thing" "I don't think you're fat" "I like you just the way you are." That's great, I love that they accept me, but the last time I checked morbidly obese is fat and unhealthy. I don't want this just for my looks... I want to be healthy. I found out in March of 2010 that I have Type II diabetes and to be honest, as of recently, I haven't been taking care of it. But I am commited to changing that. I'll soon be going to get a physical and get my physician to support my plan with monthly check-ins(at least she will hold me accountable). I am far too young to be giving my self the health issues that I am giving myself. At this point, I feel like I'll probably have a stroke by the time I'm 28 if things don't change. That's not the cards I was dealt, and those are not the cards I'm going to play. I know where I am supposed to be in life and it is my job to get there.

I can't forget, I am a co-leader of a pretty amazing group of people and I'd love for you to join us.

I promise you won't regret it!

Well, that's all I'm writing tonight... if you have any questions for me or would like some support, feel free to message me. I'm looking forward to meeting you and getting to know you. :)
