Hi Everybody! Well my name is Christina, I'm 28, a mother of 1 and currently 280 lbs, ugh. I came across this person's youtube video talking about Couch 2 5K, I was inspired. Did some more research and then came across this website, so Happy I found this. I'm at a point in my life where I'm ready for a positive change, no more excuses and taking accountability for my weight. I've always been bigger than the majority of my friends but during high school times it didn't really bother me as much as it does now. When I was pregnant with my daughter I thought that was the biggest I'd ever be, I was somewhere around 250 or so. Oh lord was I wrong lol, bad habits and no exercise defiantly got the best of me. I'm a emotional eater I guess you could say, I eat when I'm sad, or just plain bored. I'm a stay at home mommy, so any sort of exercise went out the window with my motivation. I really want to change all that, I have the time to exercise and educate myself to eat better but I can't figure out why I don't. Until now, I realized I'm tired of being tired. My friends used to tell me I had this spark about me, that when I wanted something I accomplished it, no matter the obstacles, I want that woman back the person I feel I lost sight of. Oh one other thing I found out this year I'm diabetic so that was really a wake up call. I need to do something for myself and my family. This weight really makes me feel horrible about myself that I let it go on for this long. I hate going out because my feet start hurting or my back, I avoid pictures at all cost lol, because I don't want to believe them or see what I really look like. But I realize now the only thing stopping me is ME. I only lack the tools and support. So with that being said that's why I'm here, I hope to find support with people which I feel I lack with friends because they're all skinny and could never understand what it feels like. My goal is to loose at least 100 lbs by next year and to continue with Couch 2 5k, I've only been doing it for a few days now and allready feel better. My second goal is to Run my first 5k, to prove to myself that I can do this. And my most important goal is to be healthy and feel better about myself. I hope to be inspired by others on here and maybe even inspire someone along the way =-) So if you'de like to add me please do, the more the merrier!
