Hello! I'm Krissandra (23), mom to Caleb (2.5 years old) and Lucas (almost 15 months). I have finally hit the 120's (I now weigh 129 lbs as of this week, hooray!), which is a total postpartum weight loss of 33 lbs over a period of about a year. I'll post my progress pics in the Photos section, since I'm proud of my accomplishment! My goal weight is between 115-120 lbs, and I hope to be there by summer so that I can finally FINALLY wear a bikini, stretch marks be darned! Hahaha! I have never worn a bikini out in public in my entire adult life, so it's something of a personal milestone.

Aside from feeling good about the way that I look, I want to be healthy more than anything. I'm going to be getting my gallbladder removed very soon, and even though I was never severely overweight, it must mean something bad about the way that I've been living my life up until this point if I need an organ removed at just 23. Yikes!

So, here I am! I haven't been below 146 lbs since I was a freshman in high school, a whole decade ago!! People have been asking me what I've been doing, and my answer is always diet and exercise. Now that I've burned a lot of the fat away, my main goals now are to tone up and try to get some muscle definition in my stomach area.
