    Love this list Kristine! I’m going to come over and we’re going to watch all 10 of those classic movies! And of course every season of Chrisley knows Best, haha!

    My 2016 goal is definitely to maintain my goal weight!

      You are so right!! Get your little self all PUMPED for the new season in September!!

      That’s a great goal! I have to say what helped me the most in slimming down was being very diligent on not over-eating. For as much as I love food and eating, over-eating is just not worth feeling uncomfortable in my own skin.
