Hi my name is Kristy. I currenly live in Weatherford Texas and have three kids. My husband and have been trying to lose weight and eat heatlhier since January 2006. We made a New Years resolution to get healthy together and so far so good. I have finally been able to get up off the couch and live my life. I have lost over 70 pounds and feel great. My husband has lost almost 100 pounds and is my inspiration. He is currently training for a triathlon.
The changes in our life style from just a year ago, still astound us both. It's hard to believe that we got so big. Even my kids have jumped on the fitness band wagon. And has truely made this a family activity. My oldest son is sliming down and learning to stop overeating. My younger son has gotten into sports and now has better self estem. My daughter has always been slender, but at least she has become more active as well.
I am very proud of the progress we hade made and how it has made us a stronger couple and family. Thanks to Spark!!!!

Fitness Minutes: 0

My Goals:
Even though I know they would never admit it willing, I know my childern were ashamed of having an over weight mother. I would like to change that and become the mother that they deserve. One that they can look up to not only as a role model but some one they can look to for healthy eating habits. And on a more selfish note, for myself I would like to be able to go shopping and finally be able to fit into those cute outfits, that I always wanted to wear.

My Program:
Mayo Clinic Diet and 40 Minutes of Cardio a day. 30 minutes of weight training 3 times a week.

Personal Information:

Weatherford, TX

Other Information:
I am a very creative person. I love art and music of any form. I enjoy singing, drawing, cooking, sewing and coming up with new craft ideas. Yeah, I know how very Martha Stewart of me huh? But, it helps me to unwind. And with three kids, I''ll take what I can get.

    Hello fellow gazeller and Sparker,

    Just thought I’d come by and see what your up to, I’ve have not seen you on the gazelle team, hope your doing well.

    I’m searching the team members to find out what it would take for them to want to use there gazelles again, and if there already using them what would it take to get them to come back to the team and share with us what they’re doing?
    And I’d like to know what I could do to help YOU in your weight lose journey? Please let me know.

    Surprise! It's Grandma Marcie, here. I want you and anyone else who reads this to know how I appreciate you sending me a link to this site. It took me a couple of months to really check it out, but here I am. You are a beautiful young woman with a good mind and a lot of inner strength. I want to be able to be around all you guys when I am a fit old lady hiking up Watkins Glen. I'm gonna go for my walk today, even though it's cold and cloudy here at Skyfield Acres. Maybe one of these days I'll get Grandpa to come with... Love to everyone!

    You are doing phenomenal! I am so proud of you and your husband. I love to hear how people lost lots of weight on SP -- it is so inspirational! You two should submit your success stories as a team. I think your story is super motivating. Thanks for sharing your successes with us!
