My name is Cristin. I'm a wife, mom to a son and stepmom to 2 girls. I saw some NYE pics of myself and knew it was time to get off my butt. I let stress and bad eating habits turn me into someone I no longer recognized.
I was a size 14-16 (depending on the brand of clothing) and now I'm a solid 6 (doesn't matter what brand!) I am 5'4". Husband and I have been on this journey together since January 2nd, 2012. We started with MFP and joined a gym a month into it. I've never stepped inside a gym before, but I let my fear go and it's paying off.
After having my son, my body isn't anywhere near what it was, even now as a size 6 so currently I'm working on toning up and I still have 15lbs to go to be considered a "healthy weight", but honestly I'm not worried about the scale any longer.
In June I began working with a trainer and learned way more in 6 weeks than I had by doing online research and working out on my own, so money well spent. Husband and I are finishing our basement and creating a home gym.
