Do you know the person who was the first to speak the words in my title? If you do, please tell me because the simple quote above has inspired me in unimaginable ways.
My name is Christina. I am 37 years old and I have been steadily gaining weight since my teen years. In 1999 I married my wonderful husband. Two years later we had a son. After delivery, I suffered with severe postpartum depression. After a few months of psychological treatment, I was diagnosed with Bi-polar disorder.
I can honestly say that since that diagnosis, I haven't accomplished much. Unless you count gaining an extra 300 pounds!


Member Since: 5/18/2012

Fitness Minutes: 65

My Goals:
My goal is to lose weight and keep my sanity while doing so!


My Program:
Living one day at a time, making the best choice possible, as often as I can. Rather than count calories, I've focused on increasing my fruit an veggie intake, greatly limiting meat and dairy, while cutting back on the amounts of processed foods and sugars. The key to my success thus far has been to focus on cooking new and unfamiliar recipes, rather then alter my familiar repertoire. By doing this, I have found I do not feel deprived what so ever.



Personal Information:
I live in Southern California. I am a mother, wife, and home school teacher. I am far from typical and lots of crazy fun! I love to cook and hate to clean. My dream job would be to find the best place for everything. I'm not sure this would exactly be a home organizer, but something along those lines. It's crazy because I've been known to straighten the inside of a cupboard and leave the entire nearby counter a chaotic mess.
