I am a 30 year old mother of 4 (Sabrina, Isabella, Micayela, and Sophia) who has struggled with my weight for YEARS now. Now that I've just finished my 3rd pregnancy (my "4th" child is my stepdaughter, Sabrina) I'm MORE than ready to lose this weight for good.

My motivation is my children...

The more I think about the kinds of lives I'd like for my children to lead, the more I know that the guidance has to come from me. I can't teach my girls good eating habits if I'm snacking on Little Debbies all the time! I had extremely low self-esteem growing up, and I want my girls to know that they're beautiful--in my mind, the best way to teach them to see themselves that way is for me to see MYSELF that way... So, that's why I'm here.

I lost (and kept off) 20 lbs. in 2010, with minimal effort. I figure that means that with some REAL effort, I can lose the last 40 and unveil the slimmer, more confident (and healthy) me!

My Goals:
I would like to lose 30-40 lbs. I have a 10 lb. window because, after 3 kids, it's hard to imagine what I might be satisfied with, weight-wise. A 40 lb. loss would put me within the acceptable weight range for my height (I'm 4'10").

My Program:
I'm "holding" someone's treadmill (thank God his apartment is too small!), so I'm doing walking/running intervals (at varied inclines) for 30 mins. a day. AND--I've fallen in love with Zumba! I will be doing that as often as possible! :)

Personal Information:
I'm Christina, I'm from VA. I'm a server at a hot tourist spot--a job which most people would despise, and I actually love! :) It's fun and I get to interact with adults on an (almost) daily basis. I'm married for going on 5 years now. We've been together for 7 years--he's a good man, and very supportive.

Other Information:
I'm a big reader--Nora Roberts is my all-time favorite. I also like the Twilight, House of Night and Vampire Academy series. I LOVE music, REAL horror films, and goofy humor. I'm a Facebook addict (I have more high school friends on FB than I had in high school!) and not ashamed of it! :)
