“During this round of Snatched, I learned something new about myself. I started believing something new - to accept myself the way I am and be happy with the way I am.” - Ninja Kristen
I did Snatched back in spring of 2015 and loved it. I lost weight and got stronger and was thrilled with that. Not long after that, life got in the way (and perhaps I got lazier than I should have) and I de-Snatched, if you will. Now, I turn 50 at the beginning of March and wanted to do something good for myself. I didn’t want to be 50 and fat or 50 and flabby. So I decided to do Snatched again, hoping to be 50 and fit or 50 and fabulous, something like that.
During this round of Snatched however, I learned something new about myself. Or at least I started believing something new. Of course I want to look better, but I’ve also started to learn to accept myself the way I am and be happy with the way I am. I am a single mom. I am a production stage manager. I have a baby belly. I have lines on my face. And I’m starting to like them. I like my baby belly because my son came out of it and I like the lines on my face because they are signs that I’ve made it this far. Snatched has helped me appreciate all of these things and so many more and for that, I will be forever grateful. So thank you MFF Team. And I’m going to keep showing up! 50, here I come!!
