I am a 29 year old mother of 4 kids (2 step) and have stuggled with my weight for all of my life! The problem has not been taking the weight off but to keep it off. Until my car accident. I was in a car accident on 12/26/01 which left me with chronic pain every where. I now have a problem with pain, weight loss, and stabilization. Great 3 of the worst things right. I used to beable to work from home and that is how I heard about this wonderful site. I per my doctors orders no longer can work from home nor anywhere else..... Gotta do something to keep from crying. I am currently taking MANY meds for the pain and 4 1/2 anti-depressants for the mental pain lol.... I also just recently gound out that I have an under active thyroid so just got on meds for that.
I have a wonderful and supportive husband who acts as though he is vision impaired b/c he SAYS I am fine the way I am! We all know that is a crock lol. I feel like my family sees my weight loss as just another time christina is going to loss weight just to gain it back. That is all I have ever done. My weight goes up it goes down it goes up it goes down over and over and over again. This time I have a secret weapon SP! And lemme tell you first hand this is way better then Weight watchers. I hated counting the points on my own ugh.

Member Since: 7/12/2007

Fitness Minutes: 963

My Goals:
My 1st goal is to lose at LEAST 2 pounds a week.
My 2nd goal is to as a consiquence of weight loss have at least a degree of pain relief.
My 3rd goal is to keep the weight OFF!
and my 4th goal is to not be ashamed when I walk outside the house knowing how thin I USED to be.

My Program:
I am doing a lower carb plan along with the Sparkpeople calorie counter.
Trying to workout using the turbo jam videos at least 4x a week.

Personal Information:
I was born in MI but now reside in CO. I am happily married with our 4 beautiful children.
I am completly open to suggestions on how to take and keep the weight off for good.
If you want to know anymore feel free to email me. :)

Other Information:
I love spending time with my kids. I have to drive them 20 minutes to school each day (my choice b/c didn't want to change their schools) one way! PLUS my daughter's school starts at 7:25 and my sons starts at 8:25 so my son and I sit in the car talking until it is time for him to start school. other wise just a waste of EXPENSIVE A$$ gas! I was/am a young mom who had my first kid at 16 and my second at 18 (18 by a landslide lol). I am now 29 and VERY proud of my babies!

    Hey woman, I'm doing alright, kinda've pissed about a customer we had a couple of days ago, that come to find out wrote us a bad check for $200+ and is willing to go to court over it, long story....but anyway, we are trying to get past this mentally...Thanksgiving went well, kids are doing good, my daughter is growing and developing her own little personality, she is so cute....we hired a temporary babysitter to sit w/her during the day for a few hrs so that I could help out in the field and can get some much needed things done in the office, this has helped my attitude tremendously...my husband has said the last few days have been much more productive for him so we are getting along better.....he is not treating me stupid like he has been doing for so long...I ate too much this week and didn't work out nearly enough, begin new tomorrow...

    Hope you guys had a good thanksgiving, onward Christmas....
