Hello ... I'm Kris.
My story is that I used food to ease my stress & boredom. And would eat just for the taste , even if I was full. So over the years I got bigger and bigger.
And it didn't help that my husband would make remarks about calling Jenny Craig or putting up articles from fitness magazines.
I wasn't motivated and sank deeper into depression & tried to eat myself happy.
I didn't really know how much I had used food as my crutch until this past Christmas when family pictures were taken.. ( I avoided being in pictures for many years)...I was shocked at how big I had gotten.
So I made a decision to change my life & lose the weight.
Now instead of sleeping all day or vegging in front of the TV I go to the gym Monday - Friday.
And I have a walking buddy,when weather permits we walk 2-5 miles every day.
I do take a prescription called Adipex. It boosts my metabolism & gives me more energy. But it is not for everyone and I am not promoting weight loss medication...I'm just listing it as one of the "helping aids" in my weight loss.
I am happy to be a part of the Spark People Community.
And want you to know your not alone. There are people out here who care and want to help!
And remember it's not a "Diet"...it's a "LIFESTYLE CHANGE!!"
So what are you waiting for ?

    Hi Kris! You look amazing my the way. I am in the same boat of just eating to eat. I'm not hungry or anything I just have nothing better to do but to eat. What is some advice you could give me on getting me started? emoticon

    WOW, look at you shrink! If you'd like to get together for some outdoor exercise, please let me know! You can find me on the Northwest Arkansas Team (according to SP's zip finder, you would be located in the area). Best of luck in your weight loss journey!
