My name is Christine and I am continuing my journey towards living a healthier life and becoming the best version of myself. I have come to a place in my life where I'm really ready to make the choices required to bring positive change in my life. I recently had a baby in January 2010 (he was 10 weeks early), after losing a baby at 7 months pregnant in April 2009. I became pregnant shortly after losing our little baby and never lost the pregnancy weight from the first pregnancy. Now that it is June 2010, I am now focused on losing this pregnancy weight, along with the extra weight I've carried for years. Therefore, I'm focusing on my heatlh, which I hope will, in turn, lead to weight loss. I am grateful that I recently found SparkPeople, because I know that others on this site are on a similar road that I'm on...the road back to ourselves. I hope my consistent use of this site will assist in keeping me focused on my true goal: to become my best self.

My Goals:
My biggest focus now is to get in healthier shape for my new baby; I want to be able to keep up with my little boy as he gets older. I want to be a healthy parent and spouse. I hope to lose 60 lbs. by the end of 2010.

My Program:
I am very, very focused on meeting my goal. Now, I am certainly not perfect and have had some bumps along the way. I'm not following anything specific yet as of 6/19/10), but I have been successful with Weight Watchers in the past and I just started using a BodyMedia fit (like a BodyBugg) to understand my true calorie burn. I will probably count calories. From an exercise perspective, I focus on mixing things up. I do 30-60 minutes of cardio, 4-6 days a week. In my fitness routine, I do Turbo Jam, Jillian Michaels DVDs, elliptical workouts, and strength training.
