My name is Kristina. I am from Syracuse, New York. I am married. On June 1, 2011 I gave birth to my first (and only) child, a son. He is the love of my life. Prior to becoming pregnant I was maintaining an 80+ lb weigh loss from over the previous few years, however, during my pregnancy, no matter how hard I tried not gaining weight I did. ALOT. I gained 50lbs. My 5 ft 2.5 inch frame cant handle that.

I am having a hard time getting back into the swing of things. I know I need to change, I know I need to get this weight off. I feel like Ive somehow failed myself.

I cannot do it any longer. I cannot feel like this about myself any more.

This is not my first SparksPage. I used it prior to my pregnancy, however, I need a fresh start..soooo here I am starting over.

Member Since: 11/3/2011

Fitness Minutes: 3,466

My Goals:
(1) Lose my pregnancy weight gain
(2) Feel better about myself and regain my self esteem
(3) MAYBE start trying to "run" :-) Ive always said I would like to try a 5k.

My Program:
I do not have a set program. I know what works for my body. I have to continuously track my calories and be accountable for what I put into my mouth. I have to exercise more than 3 times a week to see results. I have to take it day by day. I know everyday cant be perfect and I cant beat myself up if I have ONE bad day... I just have to tell myself I will pick up where I left off tomorrow.

Personal Information:
My name is Kristina,
I am 29 (and a half) years old.
I live in Syracuse, New York

Other Information:
I am enjoying my time being a 1st time mommy to my little boy.
I have a husband who can make me angry and laugh all withing 5 minutes.
I have 3 step-daughters, who even though drive me crazy constantly, I do love them.
My job is a love hate relationship.

    Glad to be your friend! You have your hands full with a job, a husband plus 4 children. It's hard to focus on oneself with all that on your plate. Just remember that the things you do for yourself make you better to take care of everyone and everything else. I'm sure you don't have a lot of time to Spark, but try not to be away too long at a time. It's way too easy to lose focus when away. Hope you have a wonderful Sparkweekend! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hey there! I've missed you--you haven't been writing much since Noah was born. I imagine you're super busy with motherhood ;) Noah is absolutely precious, by the way!
