Hello everyone! My name is Christine and I am the mother of 4 human kiddos and 5 lovely furry ones. (My heart's name is Rook). My children range from 24 to 7 years of age.
My 7 year old is non-verbal and autistic. So my reasons for losing weight is more about health these days. In the past, I focused totally on the vanity of being thin.
Heart disease and diabetes runs in my family. Right now I have changed part of that cycle. I went from being almost 200 lbs and on insulin, to the 150's and an A1C of 5.4. I am proud of myself.
My goal is to run a 5K all the way through this year. I start a boot camp class today and I to build some core muscle to help support this little body. And if I could, I would love to not look pregnant.
Thanks to everyone who follows along.

Member Since: 4/10/2012

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. I am even trying a plant based program at the moment.

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.

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.
