My name is Krisann. I am originally from Washington State but have lived in CA, VA, AZ, PA, & NM. I am a US Army Veteran, as is my husband, Cris. Our oldest son and our son-in-law are currently on active duty in the Army and Air Force.

My husband and I have been married 21 years.

We have 7 children and 7 grandchildren. I have home-schooled all my children since 1994.

John is 26 and married with 2 girls and a boy. He is leaving for his third tour in the Middle East in Aug. He has received numerous commendations and awards and made Staff Sargent (E-6) with just 4.5 years in service.

Alisha is 24 and married with 2 special needs boys and 2 girls. She is a full time Criminal Justice student, a certified corrections officer, and is a certified personal trainer. She is married to a young man who is in the Air Force.

Emily is 20, she has an Associate's Degree in Film Technology and has already worked on several projects including a movie due out shortly called, "Last Stop" with Brian Austin Green. She just earned a second Associate Degree in Psychology and will have her Bachelor's Degree in Psychology in May.

Kiraleigh is 19. She is a full time film technology student scheduled to graduate in December 2012.

Julia is 18. She finished three semesters of college but has decided it isn't for her. She is a full-time server at a local restaurant.

Samuel is 9, he is just starting out with his education. ;)

Patrick is 6, he is also just starting out.

I did not struggle with weight until I started having children. My weight yo-yo'd every time I had a baby. After I had Julia, I got on a diet and exercise kick and lost a lot of weight. Then I got sick, the doctors never figured out what it was but I was tired all the time. I ended up with depression problems and the medication caused my weight to skyrocket to 245 lbs. My mom introduced me to Weight Watcher's and I got down to 170 and got pregnant. I was close to 200 lbs. when I got pregnant two years later with Patrick.

In the "family" photo I weighed 235 lbs. That was taken in Feb 2007. I started WW again shortly after that and by February 2008 I was down to 155 and by that spring I made it to 145. I felt GREAT, I looked great but I gradually slacked off with my exercise and careful eating. I kept the weight off for a year and a half but by the end of 2009 I had gained about 15 lbs and during 2010 I gained another 30.

I am ready to get rid of this excess weight for good and make exercise a daily habit for myself and for my family.

    It's me again. Thanks so much for the teddy bears. They're my favourite and I'm so happy to have received the little buddies. You made my day. (I still buy stuffed critters when I see them and they make m smile.) Gracias!
