I always worked hard to have the nice body that I had when I was younger. I was a competitive gymnast for a long time, which helped, but I still always felt like I could be thinner. I have gone through a lot over the years, struggling with eating disorder and drug dependencies, which has caused my weight to fluctuate within about 50 pounds at any given time, during my adult life. After finally getting healthy in late 2006, I began to gain weight at a rapid rate, onto my lean 120lb. body frame. I became pregnant with my second daughter in Oct. 2007 and was shocked to see 195lbs. on the scale at my first midwifery appointment. Since my daughter has been 8 weeks old I have been working diligently to regain myself through my body. I am now (almost a year later) FINALLY starting to see results and it really feels good!

Member Since: 4/7/2009

My Goals:
I am graduating in December and want to be, at MOST, 170 pounds by then. I can do it.

I am *supposed* to be going on a cruise in March or April of next year and want to be, at MOST 150 by then. I can do it.

My Program:
Right now, I don't have much of a program, unfortunately. I am the catering manager of a popular sandwich chain, so the hours I work are CrAzY!! There are days when I have to be at work until midnight, just to go back at 4:30AM and work until 2PM. After this long day, I go to school at night from 5:30 until 9:45, leave school and go back to work until midnight. Needless to say, by then end of the week I am EXHAUSTED. So, I try to eat sensibly throughout the week and work out on the weekends.... but I haven't seen a loss in quite some time! However... I know I can do it.

Personal Information:
My name is Christina, or Nina, for short. Nothing else. Not Chris, not Chrissy, not Christi, not Tina, and certainly not Christine. They are all lovely names, they are just not my name. =) Find me at

Other Information:
I have two BEAUTIFUL daughters, Aurora and Olivia, that are my inspirations each and every day. I am currently a Marketing major at Augusta State University and will be graduating in December of 2010! I want to look great at my graduation (and my graduation trip!!) and am prepared to take on whatever I need to to make that happen.

    Hey!! saw your page on the BL season 9 challenge!! Former gymnast here as well=)...and of course all of our weight goes to our butt and thighs..haha!! I know that muscle is still in there somewhere!! I look back at pictures and think "god I want to see that line of muscle in my thigh again". Bit by bit!! I see you have had your own journey to where youare now!! Mine has been an up and down ride as well!! 4 kids..all in 6 years!! I have not seen within 10 pounds of my "High-School weight" since the night I graduated in 2000...LOL!! Good Luck on the rest of your journey!! Everyone says us former true athletes lose it quicker because we already have the muscle's just buried under the fat=)!!!

    Just wanted to wish you and your family a wonderful holiday. I'm going to try to log in more often. Everyone is so busy these days.
    I see you have lost a great deal of weight. I'm so stuck right now.
    Scale is not going anywhere. The butter popcorn I just ate isn't going to help the situation any. Take care Spark friend.
