Lots of News to Report  
I think most of you know that I am trying really hard to improve myself this new year, so that I can gain some confidence and strength to attend the SPN Chicago con in October. Well, I've mostly been working on losing weight and it's a tremendous struggle to first, put myself ahead of everything else in my life (I never do that)/caring enough to want to get better, and giving up foods that I love and exercising! I've had a very difficult time doing these things, but after weighing myself today I feel like I'm finally accomplishing something. To date I've lost 18 lbs over the past several months. ^^ I have a lot more to go, but damn it, I want to feel like I deserve to have fun and enjoy doing things again.

I've just learned that the rumors that have been spreading like crazy lately about Jared & Gen being engaged are true after all. I'm not sure how to take this news as I'm both heartbroken and thrilled for them at the same time. Weird, huh? I adore Jared and want nothing more than for him to be happy, and if Gen is the girl that can truly bring him happiness than that is what matters. ♥ I just can't shake feeling a little jealous as well, you know?

Okay, lately I've been thinking of changing my LJ username and I'm not sure what to go with. It's not that I'm not a huge fan of David Thewlis' anymore, it's just I've been getting a lot more involved with other fandoms, and would like to have a username that reflects those. What do you guys think? Any ideas?

Thank you, I appreciate your positive feedback! I wish you much success as well. *hugs*

I know, $15 seems like a ridiculous amount of money, doesn't it? I've been thinking of something Supernatural related, but I'm not sure what to go with yet.

omg! that is soo great! Honey that's a huge accomplish meant! Well done! I too have decided to really buckle down this time and lose some weight, tighten up. I've set the goal for August. I need to lose about 10 or 12 pounds and tighten everywhere. I set the goal for August because that's when Chicago Stargate Con is.. wish you would come to it! Michael's on the schedule for Saturday!

Thanks! I really appreciate all of your positive feedback and wish you luck in your weight loss as well. *hugs*

I wish I could go to the Chicago SG con but I'm planning on going to the SPN one in Oct. and can't afford anything else. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time though. :)

OMG 18lbs! Awesome!!!! That is great to hear!! And you do deserve to do things and have fun. You are an amazing person and don't you think otherwise!

Ooo a new name! I tried looking at lyrics but didn't really help. What I ended up doing (which I did this before to come up with a new domain name), was make a list of words you like. And then see if you can combine them to make a username .

Kristin: Supernatural- Sam #2kristypadalecki on January 7th, 2010 05:08 am (UTC)
Thanks! You are so sweet, I try so hard to believe that.

Well, I was thinking of something Supernatural related like jaredgrrl or something. What do you think? Otherwise I'll have to go back to the drawing board. :)

18 pounds! That's wonderful! How did you do it? I've been wanting to lose 10 pounds but don't know where to begin. XD

Jared is engaged? O_O I feel the same way as you. *nods* Now both the boys are engaged!

I suck at usernames because I always end up renaming again. That's why I always use my name. XD Maybe you can use yours? Good luck finding a new one!
Kristin: Davykristypadalecki on January 7th, 2010 05:10 am (UTC)
Thank you! I've just been trying to cut out some of the foods I used to eat, or only eating half. Carbs are the worst, they seem to be in everything. I'm also trying to exercise more, which I didn't do much of before. *blush*

Yes, apparently he is engaged. I have very mixed feelings about the whole thing.

I think there is already a kristin LJ, so unfortunately that's not a possibility.
sane_psycho02: RDJ closesane_psycho02 on January 7th, 2010 07:38 am (UTC)
Congrats on the weight loss! It's one of the best feelings in the world! :)

I know how you feel on the whole engagement thing. Sometimes I feel so silly getting jealous over my fave celeb men having a girlfriend/being married/engaged. I know I'll never get with the person, so it really doesn't matter in the end whether they're taken or not. But I can't help being jealous when they're not single!

I feel like such a jr. high kid when that little twinge starts seeping in, haha. So it makes me feel better to know I'm not the only 25 y/o who still gets jealous when her fave celeb is getting married/already married/seeing someone!
Kristin: Heath Ledgerkristypadalecki on January 7th, 2010 05:56 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much! It is a great feeling.

I know exactly what you mean. I guess I'm feeling a little bad because it just seems like such a fast engagement/marriage, and I truly don't know if she's the right one for him. He deserves a truly genuine and loving person and I'm not sure if she's it. :/

Thanks! Well, I'd rather not give a specific amount of how much I need to lose. Let's just say it's quite a bit. I hope you're able to reach your goal as well. :)

It's really difficult to come up with a username, I'm so not creative. ^^
tarienemrys: Jared's laughtarienemrys on January 7th, 2010 12:16 pm (UTC)
I'm glad at your accomplishment girl *huge hug*

I can understand about Jay's engagement :D It's quite natural :D :D

Mmmm I wish I could help for a idea for a username :) but I fail at those stuff =D *refers to my username* Hope you'll find a cool one though :D Good luck...
Kristin: Supernatural- Sam #2kristypadalecki on January 7th, 2010 05:59 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much! *hugs back*

What do you think about this whole engagement/marriage thing happening so fast?

I know, I stink at being creative when it comes to things like usernames. I was thinking of jaredgrrl, what do you think?

lmao, up until now I wondered what thewlisian ment - always kinda read it as 'The Wlisian' (and I could never pronounce that) *rofl*
Kristin: David- Angelkristypadalecki on January 7th, 2010 06:00 pm (UTC)
Lol, I should have probably given an explanation of my username on my profile page! :D
Krissy: Friends: Phoebe: Yay!ghostpiano on January 7th, 2010 05:08 pm (UTC)
Congratulations on doing so well with your goals so far! I'm really happy for you! *hug* A few months ago I decided to make a similar change in my life - eating well, and exercising - and it feels so wonderful being healthy. So I'll be here cheering you on!
Kristin: Pushing Daisies- Chuck #2kristypadalecki on January 7th, 2010 06:01 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much, Krissy, that means a lot to me! *hugs back* It really does make you feel a lot better emotionally and physically. Thanks for your support. :)
jessm78: Sam/Dean hug from Mystery Spotjessm78 on January 7th, 2010 06:08 pm (UTC)
First... congrats, hon! You are making some progress! It usually is slow in the beginning, but as long as you stay committed and focused you should do just fine! :)

Second... awwww, I know what you mean. *huggles* I have kind of mixed feelings about it. On one hand, there is a bit of jealousy - but mostly because he's younger than me and it seems like everyone younger than me is married these days LOL. Also it seems a bit sudden considering he'd just broken up with Sandy when he first met Gen. I know there is no set time for when people fall in love and decide they want to spend their lives together, but still. On the other hand, I'm very happy for them. I've never met Gen personally or seen her in anything but SPN so I don't have much of an opinion on her, but apparently she makes Jared happy, which is the important thing.

(*hoping no one else on your flist will roast me alive for saying any of this*)

As for the LJ name thing, hmmm.... something related to Sam on SPN maybe? Like a quote of his?
Kristin: Supernatural- Sam #2kristypadalecki on January 7th, 2010 11:27 pm (UTC)
Thank you so much, your kind words mean a lot!

I know what you mean, it seems like more and more younger people are tying the knot, but you know, everyone is different so when the time is right it will happen! *hugs* I don't know much about Gen either, but I can't say I'm a big fan. I want Jared to be happy too, so if she can do that then I hope it works out for them! I just hope these sudden engagements don't mean it's the end of the show. o.O

I've been leaning that way. All I've come up so far is jaredgrrl, what do you think?

Congrats on the weight loss! I know how hard it is, so much sacrifice and exercise! I have to do it myself and know how difficult it is! Hang in there!!

As for Jared and Genevieve, I understand how you feel! I guess we all hoped we might snag him, but knew in our hearts it was all just hope and dreaming in our heads! I just want Jared to be happy, and I'm sure you want the same! I hope Gen is the one who will make Jared happy--forever!

As for your username, you should choose something that more reflects YOU, not your current fandom crush. I picked lovetheguys because that's how I feel about Jensen and Jared. But it could apply to other fandoms, if I so choose, with handsome hunks in them! Choose a username that reflects the person you are.

Love, Robin

Kristin: Supernaturalkristypadalecki on January 7th, 2010 11:24 pm (UTC)
Thanks! It's terribly hard, as I've been pretty neglectful for years. Good luck to you as well. *hugs*

I never realistically thought I'd ever have a chance with him, it's just hard when you find out someone you just adore is no longer single! Like you, all I care about is his happiness, so if that's with Gen then so be it.

I know what you're saying, I'm still giving it a lot of thought! :)
pikatechu on January 8th, 2010 05:34 am (UTC)
You go, girl! :D You totally beat me, I've only lost 10lbs so far! ROCK IT, WORK IT! ♥

I'll let you in on a secret; when I was 14 I was utterly CONVINCED I was going to marry Bam Margera and I was his soulmate - I even cried when I found out he had a girlfriend. =| :x xD Oh dear!

So jealously is normal! ;D *twiddles fingers*
Kristin: Jared | Friday the 13thkristypadalecki on January 12th, 2010 12:13 am (UTC)
Thanks hon! It's not a contest, I wish you much luck with your weight loss too. :D

It's terrible that at my age I'm still feeling jealous, but I just can't help myself! I don't think I'd ever have a chance with him, I just want to be sure he's not making a mistake.

Congrats on your victory!:) 18 pounds, my god, I can only wish about this..) this is FANTASTIC! The most important thing now is not giving up the diet and sports:) I'm so happy for you!

I've heard about this rumors too. And about a moth ago Jensen and his gf Daniel engaged too. So I understand your feelings:) But you're absolutely right here - such awesome guys should be happy:)
Kristin: Spn | kristypadalecki on January 12th, 2010 12:15 am (UTC)
Thanks! I'm sure you could lose however much you wanted to as well, don't worry. :) I keep pushing myself to keep up with the diet & exercise so I hope it pays off!

Hopefully Jared & Jensen's gfs will treat them right and be the right people for them to marry. ♥
