Hi ! My name is Krista. I hate being overweight and unhealthy so that's what I am doing on sparkpeople.I am trying to do something about it. The last few years I have been trying to get a college degree and working full time. I am single. Divorced twice. I have three sons. One is still home with me. I help him going to pubic school online... With work, college, and Jacob's schoolwork everything has been on hold. I eat because I have been depressed and unhappy over some things but I am getting over it. Food has been an addiction or a crutch. I have gained too much weight, again, and my blood pressure was doing crazy things. I hope to find friends on here who have similiar weight and health issures.

My Goals:
I want to loose 120 lbs. I want to exercise more and be healthy. It is bad enough to be getting older but it really sucks to be fat and unhealthy along with it.


My Program:
I am trying to keep my calories around 1200 a day. I am walking with friends at work on our break. I am drinking herbal tea instead of so many diet soft drinks.I am trying to drink more water. I am eating more soup than sandwiches.



Personal Information:
My name is Krista and I live in Arkansas. I am a mother of three children. Two of them are adults. I love music and it helps me to keep going.


Other Information:
I like facebook to keep up with my friends and family. I love funny and romantic movies, actually most movies, but not the horror bloody ones. I love to read. My favorite TV show is Grey's Atonomy and American Idol. I like Survivor some years, this year was great with Russell. I am really starting to like the Big Bang Theory.

    I can so understand your pain! I put on a lot of weight in such a little amount of time- and... it sucks! BUT! I know we can lose it-- especially with strong support groups!!

    Yes, I am game! if we all work together and support each other we will do it. We just have to stick to it. I have a lot of food issues along with depression. When I am down my weight goes up, when I am up, my weight goes down. Tired of it.

    So my closet has my skinny clothes and my fat clothes. I want to just get rid of allthe fat clothes-again. I don't know how many times I get rid of them and then have to buy them again in a year or so. So tired of the roller coster...

    stay on here and/or we got a discussion going on emotional eating if you would like to join in... I am up trying to get my college classwork done so I can go see my son ( in from Iraq) . I am jumping on that airplane ( hopefuly, got standby tickets) tomorrow with my youngest son. So if I am not on here that is why- will be back Nov.16th... thanks for your support! K
