Hi, my name is Christina, and I live in the Portland, Oregon area.

I have had Lap-band surgery, from a starting high weight of approx. 310 pounds, and have been down to about 180. Unfortunately due to some unrelated medical issues, I had to have most of the fluid removed from my band, rendering it non-functional, but I've been doing mostly OK... and then I got married at the end of October.

With all the stress of the wedding and then taking the out-of-town relatives to all the best restaurants, I *totally* fell off the wagon. And then the holidays came. Somehow, in the last 3 months, I've gained 30 pounds. So, I'm starting over here on SP, from 219. Onederland, Here I come! (again!)


Member Since: 8/13/2009

Fitness Minutes: 2,004

My Goals:
Get back to One-derland!

Get in shape!

Avoid binge eating and emotional eating!

Live a long healthy life!


My Program:
I am trying to eat like I am *supposed* to - i.e. follow the bandster rules even though my band isn't currently very functional. Less carbs, more protein. No liquid calories. Stop eating and then wait 20 minutes before eating more. Etc.

Keeping track of *every bite* on SP!

I also joined a gym and will be working out on a regular basis.



Personal Information:
Name: Christina
Age: 31
Height: 5' 7.5"
Location: Aloha, OR
Job: between contracts

Highest weight: 310
Goal weight: 175

Random things about me:
-I'm totally *obsessed* with Japanese rock music.
-If I were stranded on a desert island with only one food, I'd pick avocados. Or chocolate. Hopefully there would already be seafood there for sushi.
-I live with a man, three cats, and two birds.


Other Information:
Any diet that says you can't have sushi is not a diet for me.

    Hi. Thanks for your info on stores for plus size clothing. I live in Buffalo, NY which is near Niagara Falls. We have all the stores you spoke of and that makes me realize that I have not looked at exercise clothes in awhile. I have not shopped since last August when I had to buy work clothes for the school year. There probably was nothing left from the summer for workout clothes. Thanks for sharing and getting me motivated to get some stuff for now and for spring and summer.
    Japanese rock music sounds interesting. I have to check that out.
    Happy Valentine's Day. emoticon
