Hi! I'm Kirsten. I'm an active wife, mom and pharmacist who is seeking to develop a healthy balance with my nutrition, exercise and weight. I want to have a healthy attitude towards food and to be able to enjoy all things in moderation. I love to work out--my current exercise obsession is Zumba !! (previous ones have been: running, swimming, skiing (downhill and cross-country), aerobic classes of all kinds, Tae Kwon Do, biking, roller-blading, Curves, elliptical trainer). I've lost weight successfully with Weight Watchers and Weigh Down Workshop. Now I'm taking what I've learned from all of the above to develop my own individual exercise & wt loss program, with the support of others in this online community!!

    I loved your Zumba video. Hope you put more on there. I love your energy you look great!!! The get fit game is for motivation. You win for living healthy not how many pounds are lost so anyone can play. We are letting some of the kids in the family play the past two months and they are doing great as well. It really helps when a group is doing it together. Let me know if you need any info I'll sure help any way I can.

    Hey there! That's awesome! I'd definitely say it was a success!!! Even if you didn't hit all your goals - I think you had a marvelous time and that $340 is going to a great cause!!! Wish I could have been there to help you out!!! It sounds like a total blast!!!! I'll have to swing by if I'm ever in the area and hang out in your classes (some friends might be getting married out there - so that actually might be within the next year!)

    Hope you have an amazing Friday!!!
