HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Traveling, computers, going to plays, concerts, etc.


PETS: Cat named Monkey

WW START DATE: 3/17/08

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE WW: I've tried it before and it worked. I just got off track, plus my knee started acting up on me and I quit my walking and just started eating what I wanted to. All my own fault. I still could have eaten better even if I couldn't continue walking.

TOP WEIGHT: 207

CURRENT WEIGHT: 195

GOAL WEIGHT: 135

HEIGHT: 5'0"

EYE COLOR: Brown

HAIR COLOR: Brown

OCCUPATION: Financial Analyst

GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION: Grand Rapids, Michigan

FAVORITE COLOR: Blue

PET PEEVE: Mean people

FAVORITE FOODS: I like salty things. Popcorn, chips, and breads are my downfall.

FAVORITE EXERCISE: Just started a water aerobics class and I love it. I used to love walking, but that's out of the question right now.

FAVORITE BOOK(S): Anything by Lisa Scotoline, James Patterson and Mary Higgins Clark.

FAVORITE MOVIE(S): Pretty Woman, Working Girl

FAVORITE MUSICIAN/GROUP: Aerosmith

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: Breads & salty snacks

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: I have a bad knee and I feel if I lose weight, it will help my knee feel better. Besides, I can't stand myself this heavy. I feel like a blimp!

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? I used to walk every day for at least 1/2 hour a day. Then my knee started really bothering me. I had an MRI and they said I have no more cartlidge in my knee. It's bone on bone. They don't want to do a knee replacement on my because I'm too young so I have to live with it for at least another 5 years. I decided that I needed to lose weight as it wasn't helping my knee. Plus, if I do get a knee replacement I'm sure it will be better for my new knee to weigh less. So here I am.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: I've done ww and tried the flex program. It worked for me, but as stated above I had a few obstacles and didn't stick to the plan. I decided to try the core plan this time and I absolutely love it.

USERNAME/REAL NAME: breatheincubus7 / Christine

AGE: 27

BIRTHDAY: Decemer 19, 1980

FAMILY INFO: Married to the love of my life, have a 7 y-o step-daughter, and the most wonderful parents and in-laws ever.

HOBBIES/INTERESTS: Reading, myspace, internet in general, music

PETS: Two black and tan short hair dachshunds, Twix and Jazzabelle, my babies; and one rottweiler who is the worlds biggest pain in the arse...but cute.

WW START DATE: Monday!

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE WW: My husband and I had started the SBD Ph. 1 and made it a week, and then found out about WWC from a lady who has lost 56 lbs since January. So, we decided to finish out the 2nd week of SBD and then start Core. Three days into it, and things are peachy. Aside from terrible salt and chocolate cravings from that lovely time of the month...what a week to start Core!!

TOP WEIGHT: 155

CURRENT WEIGHT: 143..i actually gained a pound since SBD...

GOAL WEIGHT: 120, but i would be happy with 125

HEIGHT: 5'4ish"

EYE COLOR: blue

FAVORITE EXERCISE: walking

FAVORITE BOOK(S): Dean Koontz, Nora Roberts, any trashy romance novels..heeh. but recently have broadened my literature horizons with Me Talk Pretty One Day, A Million Little Pieces, and currently am reading The Tenth Circle, all of these books are fantastic and I highly recommend them.

FAVORITE MUSICIAN/GROUP: I love Red Hot Chili Peppers, Incubus, Green Day, Weezer, Dixie Chicks, and lots of others...No country cept for the chicks though...and not a big fan of rap really..

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS: laziness and overindulgence

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL: My husband and I are determined to do this right this time, and be healthier and happier with ourselves. He is also planning on testing for State Police in about 2 years, or when he finishes his AAS at community college, so he needs to shed his marital bliss pounds and get in shape for testing so he does well. And I have never weighed this much in my life. Mainly in part this is due to carry ins at work, donuts in the morning, ordering out for lunch with the girls, and having a job where i sit on my arse all day and only use my hands to work with.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU? Nothing outstanding that I can think to mention.

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE: Haven't had any real dieting experiences personally. This is the true first time I've really made an attempt at being a health-conscious eater. It was always just whatever I wanted, I ate.

WW START DATE: My first weigh in was Sept. 19th, I started eating core on Monday, the 15th.

WHAT MADE YOU CHOOSE WW: My boyfriend has been doing it, and has lost 35+lbs since May. I sort of already ate this way anyway, but didn't really watch my carbs, and screwed myself up a lot of times with Beer, and TAKE OUT! Pizza is my fav! lol

TOP WEIGHT: 154.8

CURRENT WEIGHT: 153.2

GOAL WEIGHT: 125, My first goal is 10% body weight by Dec. 19th. That puts me at 139. I'm flying to Denver to see my sister for Christmas. WOOWHO!

PET PEEVE: Whiners that never do anything to change their situation, but can complain all day.

FAVORITE EXERCISE: Hmm, toughy! I love dancing and aerobics! FitTv is so inspiring. My Fav. is where the 2 trainers come to your house and turn your home into a gym without using trainging equipment! I find my self grabbing cans and using them for lifting or just keeping my arms extended!

FAVORITE MOVIE(S): Confidence, Fight Club, American Beauty, Momento, Finding Nemo, Layer Cake, Football Factory

FAVORITE MUSICIAN/GROUP: Weezer, The Prodigy, Lisa Lashes, DJ Tiesto, Rise Against, Bad Religion, Social Distortion

WHAT IS YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM IN WEIGHT LOSS:
Sticking to my plan. I eat soo good and then destruct once and its all over. Making excuses is probably the downfall! I love this site though, I've been staring at it for the last 2 weeks and have decided to jump in on the boards. It's all very inspiring, and I've been sending this site to everyone!

WHAT IS DIFFERENT THIS TIME THAT WILL MAKE YOU SUCCESSFUL:
The support from my boyfriend, and the fact that I'm done being over weight, its way to unhealthy and I'm getting older and need to take better care of myself.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?
Not that I can think of, but if you want to know you can ask, I'm a super friendly cyber friend. haha!

WHAT EXPERIENCES CAN YOU SHARE:
I'm not sure, I'm really good at cooking, and mixing things up. I'll be posting a couple of recipes that I made on my own before doing core, just trying to eat healthy, but in actuality, they are core! I was studying to be a nutrionist, and had a dietitian for a teacher. She was awesome, I think I lost like 10 lbs that semester because she had us trying all types of veggies. I know now that I LOVE Spaghetti Squash, and don't ever really have to eat a steak, as Portabello's are just as delish! My boyfriend has me eating Flank steak, and although its a lil tough, its delish.

Anywho, Thanks for reading! Good luck to you all!
