(sorry might be long!)
My name is Christina, I am 26, weigh approx. 225. I'm not looking to be "stick thin" but I do want to feel & be healthy. This is the most I have ever weighed. I have not always been over weight, infact, there was a time that I worked my way down to an "ideal" weight of 135.
I'm tired of thinking about my weight, worrying about it, and worrying about how other people think of me. There are several factors that have led me to where I am at. I have let these obsticals trick me into thinking that I am stuck & will never reach my goals. Which is funny since I have done it before. So, I've finally come to the thought that with all the energy I use thinking about how unhappy I feel, or disappointed that I've let my weight get out of control, I can instead put that energy to use -- in a positive way. But I know it's a long road ahead of me & it takes dilligence, which is why I am here looking for support.
Here's a little bit about me: I have 2 adorable little girls, & a wonderful husband. I work full-time nights, attend PT classes (working towards a certificate in Medical Transcription). I have a crazy schedule, which has greatly contributed to my current situation. It was easy for me to sit back and say, well, next year when I'm out of school, & not working nights I'll take care of my weight problem. But now I'm asking myself why I have to wait? If I'm honest, I am really just scared that I'll fail & have to live the rest of my life dealing with the issues that come along with being overweight.
Anyway, enough about me. I'm looking forward to joining your group & getting to know you all.
