OMG..can you believe this?

When I started Spark, I was full of hope, but short on belief in myself. I had lost a few pounds on my own, always to gain them back.

My total weight balloned quickly to 536 pounds and I couldn't walk, couldn't breath without oxygen and ate to help myself to an early grave.

I am so happy to announce that I busted through the 5's..4's and 3's

I AM OFFICALLY 294!

Okay, I know some of you are thinking...good lord...she is happy about being 294 pounds?????

DARN TOOTIN' I AM AND I AM RAISING THE ROOF IN HAPPINESS!

Lately so many people have asked me to be friends, they say I inspire them and they feel hopeless on their own journeys to health, but I don't want to inspire, I want to help

EMPOWER them on their own success story. Everyone has a success story in them and I hope to help each of you find that story within yourselves.

Thank you for all the frienship adds, motivational messages, lovely heart felt emails and for the constant support

here on SPARK PEOPLE.

My life is changing everyday and I am proud to call SPARK PEOPLE my home and so THANKFUL for all my friends here who accept

me for the person I WAS and for NEW the person that is unfolding before your eyes.

I love you all and remember......................
..................

We can do anything we put our minds too...YOU GOT THIS BABY!

Much love and hugs,


Kristin

    Thank you for justifying everything I have ever said about people complaining about being too fat to lose weight: No one is too fat to lose weight. If you want it, just work at it, and you'll get there.

And you did! I don't even know who you ARE and I'm proud of you! This is amazing! Congratulations!

    I am in awe of you....You've accomplished so much even though you haven't reached your goal. I felt exactly the same when the weight started coming off. I started out at 328 lbs and when I entered the 200's I was happy and when I hit the 100's I was ecstatic. I'm 196 and have a ways to go but I don't think people would understand how happy I am to be 196 and some probably think I'm nuts but OH WELL!! My hats off to you. Take a bow!! You have achieved so much and I commend you and congratulate you. So, I'm gonna celebrate right along with you!! Best Wishes!

  LOL, that's how I feel about leaving 288 behind and reaching 230...I know I'm still big but at the same time, I'm not as big as I was! Read through every blog, thank you so much for putting yourself out there. And it really is like every pound lost is opening a new drawer of emotional stuff...Thank you for being there for us.
