My Weight Loss on That’s Fit

Though this here blog of mine has been driven by the fact that I lost a lot of weight and changed my lifestyle over the course of the past few years, developing a new relationship with food that I’ve now been documenting for a while, I’ve never posted any Before or After type photos.


I guess mainly out of fear and discomfort of some kind. I spent the bulk (pardon the pun) of my young teenage years overweight and it was a period of my life when I was pretty uncomfortable and unhappy with myself.

And to be honest, looking at pictures of myself from that point still makes me pretty uncomfortable. I guess I just haven’t felt confident enough yet to face that image and … to what. Reveal it? Let it go? I’m not sure.

But when I was asked to participate in That’s Fit Blogging Down feature, where “Every week, we introduce you to bloggers who share their weight-loss journeys and hefty doses of inspiration with their readers,” I couldn’t say no.

So here’s a small dose of the “Before” and “After” Me:

Lighter Portions Helped Kristie Lose 50 Pounds

One of these days I’d like to actually write up a more in-depth story of my weight loss… and face more of those “Before” pictures. Someday soon enough…

Thanks for reading :)

  1. Oh, you should be absolutely proud of, not ashamed, to show the before photos. You look great, Kristie and your journey is something to brag about! :-) By the way, I also wanted to ask you about the calorie counting- I am curious at what number you started, and what is it now? There’s lot of confusion with these numbers, and I am wondering what worked for you. Congrats again and again, friend! :-)

  2. Wow what a great story!!!!!!!!

    You should be so proud of yourself, you are a strong and beautiful girl!!!

    I think that is awesome too that you did all your workouts without even joining a gym, I think most people dont realize you can do that!!

    I think it would be awesome to put on your blog the kind of exercises you do, because some people cant afford gym memberships and I think this would be great info for them!!!

    Kudos to you beautiful!!!
