I'm Chrissie! I'm a wife, a caregiver, a nanny and a student. I LOVE Bikram and love to hike, though I've not made time for either lately. Oh, and I love to eat, especially carbs and sweets and waaaay too much of each...which is why I'm here again!

"I'm bullet proof, waterproof, wind proof, money proof, sex proof, emotion proof, stress proof, strength proof. Nothing in the world takes my peace away from me." -Bikram Choudhury


I used the reward sytem for the first 30ish pounds that I lost in 2010 (went from 178 to 144) but this time around, for the last 30ish pounds I'm aiming to lose, I'm not setting rewards. My real reward will be gaining the body I want and getting fit and healthy. Obviously when I hit GW I will need to go shopping...and I figure that is reward enough! c:
