Hi there all you fellow sparkers. I have been a ghost lately around here. For all of you that don't know me, my name is Karissa and I am a proud Navy wife and mother of one great 7 year old little girl. We have just moved to Washington State from Hawaii and are loving the change in scenery. I know this is probably taboo, but I started a new program called Lindora and I have lost 33 pounds in the first 7 weeks. I feel amazing!!!! I still can't seem to leave the SP family. I love the support that I get here. I turn 31 in a couple days and am looking forward to having less than 100 pounds to lose. That is a huge milestone that I have not seen in a long time.
As I lose weight, I am looking forward to.........
-Shopping in a "regular" size store/section
-Wearing what is in style and looking good
-Fitting safely into amusement park rides
-Losing my muffin top
-Fitting into one economy airplane seat with no "spill over"
-Not feeling my lower belly touch my thighs when I sit down
-Not thinking that everyone is talking about how fat I am all the time
-Being able to get off the couch without doing the splits to make way for my gut
-letting people not like me for me, not because I am fat
-sitting in plastic lawn furniture without fear
-having meals at restaurants at any table, even a booth
-sitting with both cheeks on my car's seat
-volunteering at my daughter's school and not being embarrassed for her
-buying a bra at Victoria's Secret with matching panties
-going to a buffet in Las Vegas without people rushing to get there before me because they are afraid that I will eat all the food
-to my boobs sticking out farther than my belly
-having space between my thighs and wearing shorts or skirts without the chaffing
-fitting into movie theater seats

    Do you like the Bachelor? I just created a new team you might be interested in. It is called the Bachelor Challenge. We will have two teams competing against each other for the most weight lost each week as we watch the show! If interested, you can join by clicking the link on my page! Hope to see you there and stay warm in this cold weather!
