Hello there :)
Name's Kristen and I'm trying to get myself back on this wagon again. I just turned 29 and am trying to work on getting rid of this 20 lbs. that seems to be fixated on staying with me.
I'm motivated at times, but tend to fall back to snacking quite a bit in the evening. I've rekindled an enjoyment in origami and have been teaching myself (with the aid of the internets and lots of instructional videos) how to fold some paper and make pretty things.
My boyfriend just lost 20 lbs. (go him!!) and I'm very proud of him. I'd like to follow in his footsteps, here shortly. Though, it only took him 2 months to lose that weight. It took me two months to lose 4 lbs. Haha. So, here I am, on my second round, giving it more of a go than I did before.

Member Since: 1/14/2010

Fitness Minutes: 48

My Goals:
To simply feel better, lighter, more energetic....and happier with my body. I gained a lot of weight when I was younger and it was a pretty big blow to my esteem. I did lose a bit of the weight for a while, but after an adventure in NYC and never being able to cook my own food, I put some of it back on. I'm now trying to lose about 20 lbs, and gain some muscle, so I can get back to not feeling so heavy and blah.

My Program:
I've been trying to pay attention to exactly what I'm putting in my mouth, including remembering that alcohol does contain calories. I'm also trying to be stickler to portion sizes. Sometimes I think I eat like a ranch hand that's been working all day.

Personal Information:
The name's Kristen or Kris, whichever you prefer. I'm originally from the San Fernando Valley (L.A.) and currently reside in Las Vegas. I LOVE cooking and try to vary what I make but I'm such a meat-and-potatoes girl, it's hard sometimes (and I have a near obsession with curry). I'm growing tomatoes on my balcony (*update - they're still alive!) and I really wish that I had a yard. - Okay, another update, my tomatoes died :( and so did my cilantro and my basil. Drats, my brown thumb strikes again! I'm sorry plants, but the Vegas sun gets pretty hot!

Other Information:
A few of my favorite things: Orchids, Lost, Doctor Who, Kurt Vonnegut and Ani Difranco.
