Rook's Mom

Hello everyone! My name is Christine and I am the mother of four human kiddos and three lovely furry ones. The baby of the group is Rook. So because he needs me the most right now, the best description of myself is Rook's mom. I turned forty this year and realized that I had lived half of my life. I also realized that I would like to live the second half as an active and healthy individual. I have been plagued with diabetes since my early twenties and would love to not spend every living ...
Hello everyone! My name is Christine and I am the mother of four human kiddos and three lovely furry ones. The baby of the group is Rook. So because he needs me the most right now, the best description of myself is Rook's mom. I turned forty this year and realized that I had lived half of my life. I also realized that I would like to live the second half as an active and healthy individual. I have been plagued with diabetes since my early twenties and would love to not spend every living moment thinking about it. So my goal is to be healthier and happier while living with this disease. FUN FACT... I love Weenie Dogs!!

Member Since: 4/10/2012

SparkPoints: 2,348

Fitness Minutes: 623

My Goals:
Losing another 35 pounds and retaining that loss. Also being consistent with my diet.

My Program:
I'm not really sure. I switch back between low-fat and low-carb. The low-carb is probably better considering my diabetes. I am seeing a dietician on Monday.

Personal Information:
I am very short. Just a little over 5' and very small framed. I was always the little one in the group, but not anymore. I am trying to set an example for my girls. They are also really short, but of course they are thin. I try to caution them against letting themselves fall into the trap of thinking that it will always be that way. I would never have thought that I could weigh as much as I did. The easiest way to be thin, is to never get heavy!! This can only be accomplished through balanced eating and regular activity.

Other Information:
Diabetes has plagued me since my early twenties. It started as pre-diabetes (my doctor says there is no such thing). Quickly, it became "Metabolic X" syndrome. This is diabetes, high cholesterol and high blood pressure. I would encourage people to be aware of this condition and to be pro-active about their health. Do not make the mistake of thinking that you are too young to be affected. My father died at 40 of a massive heart attack and my mother had a quadruple bypass at 35. This is a very serious condition that has no favorites.
