My name is Christine and I'm a Registered Nurse currently living in Indiana. Making healthy changes and choices that I can live with for a long time is my current plan. I think I have jumped into weight loss with to narrow of a focus in the past; if the numbers didn’t change fast enough, it wasn’t worth it. That is not a healthy mindset and not is going to keep me healthy for the long term. I was recently told by my eye doctor that I may be developing age-related macular degeneration. Being in my mid-thirties that was quite the shock. Then she started reading the risk factors and I pretty much have all of them, some that I can’t change but then there were the factors I do control (low vegetable intake, high BMI, not being physically active). It was an eye opener for certain. It is essential that I make changes now so that I stay healthy for as long as possible! This is not about the number on the scale, this is about my quality of life!
