helenChristine's exercise and eating journey

Hi! I'm Helen.

I have a wonderful husband and 5 children. Each one has a completely different personality and different strengths and weaknesses, so they keep me hopping, trying to parent them all in their own ways... We live in NJ and we homeschool. I was born in Brazil to missionary parents and went to high school and college in Wisconsin. I studied Music Therapy in college and then worked with Alzheimer's patients for 5 years before having children.

Hi! I'm Helen.

I have a wonderful husband and 5 children. Each one has a completely different personality and different strengths and weaknesses, so they keep me hopping, trying to parent them all in their own ways... We live in NJ and we homeschool.

I studied Music Therapy in college and then worked with Alzheimer's patients for 5 years before having children.

I started the Gabriel Method of weight loss in March 2014. I now have added Dr. Fuhrman's eating plan and the weight is coming off effortlessly. I can eat all I want and I love the foods. I feel wonderful. I feel a wonderful empty feeling and I think it's the absence of inflammation. I do not miss meat, dairy, eggs or sugar. I'm still working on the salt. I do Whole Woman Yoga and strength training. I also enjoy riding the exercise bike and doing the Leslie Sansone walk at home videos. My attitude towards eating and exercise have changed. It is a joy to eat foods that make me feel great. I don't feel the sting of sacrifice. It is not a cross to bear, but a joy. My exercises are highlights in my day.

I try to follow the flylady's advice in decluttering and cleaning my home.

We are Christians. Jesus has always been my best friend.
