'I know that things are what we seek, but love is beneath that. If love isn't the foundation, then things will fall. For even if they stand, they mean nothing. I've had both, and if given the chance to choose soberly, I choose love, humbly, I choose love, wisely, I choose love.' ~Pink


My name is Kristen (my friends call me Kris) and I'm 38 years old (never mind, I think I want to stop at 29 ha ha) and I'm the mother to two children: Jonathan (age 19) and Elizabeth (age 17). I've been divorced for about 6 years and live in Harrisburg, PA.

I had lapband surgery in May 2008, and revised to gastric bypass in December 2011. I am currently hovering around 203.

I just signed up at Planet Fitness about a month ago, I ordered a bike and roller skates. Time to get serious to lose the rest of this pesky weight!

I graduated with my Master's degree in Accounting in June 2009.

I've been on SP for a LONG time and while I don't use ALL of the tools available to me, I do use a lot of them. I need to get better at tracking what and how much I eat though - that is one of my biggest downfalls.

I NEED a buddy to hold me accountable for what I say I'm going to do. I have people that say to me "oh, yeah, we can email, I'll help you, you can help me" and then the emails are far and few between. Perhaps I should just make it a point to add a blog every day since I usually get feedback for those posts. :)

I'm still working on me and focusing on taking care of myself. I haven't logged into SP for a long time...I think I'll be changing that.

My Goals:
I would like to be healthier inside and out.

I want to set a good example for my kids.

I want to be able to shop at Victoria's Secret!

I want to be confident and have great self-esteem.

I want to live a long life and not have problems because of my weight.

I want to go sky diving, and ride in a hot air balloon.

I want to be free and happy! That is my ultimate goal. Oh, I also want to see if losing weight will help my thyroid condition to the point that I don't have to take any more pills!

My Program:
My program is taking it one day at a time and not being too hard on myself if I don't do something perfectly. I am also teaching myself that the changes I am making are a lifestyle betterment, not a "diet".

Personal Information:
My name is Kristen and I live in Harrisburg, PA. My email is Feel free to contact me. I would love to find a walking/motivational/etc partner. :-)

I'm on Facebook also - if you would like to be my friend on there, let me know how to find you. I've turned the ability to find me off for the time being.

    Those born on the Taurus-Gemini cusp are eternally young. They are energetic, prolific and once they find something that really appeals to them, they do it quite a bit.
    They are also versatile. This versatility may cause them to wear themselves out because they try to do too much too frequently. They need to learn to limit themselves to create a balance.
    Taurus-Gemini is a born communicator. They love active conversations on just about any topic you can imagine. They do have to be careful not to monopolize the conversation. It is all too easy for them to do.
    They may be conflicted about certain things due to their nature. While they want to be earthy and stable, they are drawn to towards more unstable, frenetic behavior. They may not be sensitive to the feelings of others. While they can spend hours debating over their own emotional matters, they may appear rather unsympathetic or detached. They are prone to burning out, both physically and mentally. If they can learn self-discipline, they will be more successful.
    Taurus-Gemini needs to keep track of their activity level with great care. They need to learn consistency when rejecting ideas or people. They need to learn how to gentle their approach. Confronting their own insecurities will help them grow. Resting is a good thing from time to time.
    Taurus-Gemini can focus too much on money and possessions. They are usually gentle, dependable and tolerant of those around them. At the same time, they can be high strung and scattered. They are entertaining and make loyal friends who are fun to be around. They like to spend time eating good food and enjoying a rousing conversation.

    Their strengths are their stability, intellectual and conversational skills and their perseverance. They are good at analyzing challenging ideas and have the ability to communicate those ideas to others. If they can learn to add the variety of Gemini to the dedication of Taurus, they can be very successful.
    Broadminded and hardworking, Taurus-Gemini is also expressive, energetic, charming, intelligent, adaptable, shy, practical, mature, gentle, quiet, stable, restless, blunt, scattered, nervous, over-indulgent and changeable. They don't call this the Cusp of Energy for nothing.

    Individuals born on the Taurus-Gemini cusp are independent and proud. They are very talented, especially when they learn how to get their inclinations to work together. If they get unhappy, they tend to get lethargic and apathetic. Learning to forgive is a blessing in their life.
    They may have interests in art, music, travel or social activities. They attract many friends, though they should be cautious they don't over-commit themselves to too many relationships. They are generous people, who enjoy delving into many things.
