Hi, All! My name is Christine, and I have lost almost 60 pounds in the past year. I am almost to my goal weight, so the weight loss is starting to slow down, but I have recently added exercise to my daily routine. For anyone out there trying to lose weight, always remember that "I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." (Philipians 4:13)

Member Since: 4/20/2008

My Goals:
When I began this journey last August, my goal was to lose 85 pounds. So far, I have lost almost 60 pounds. I would like to be at my goal weight of 160 by this November.

My Program:
In August 2007, my husband and I starting taking classes called PRISM at a local church. It is a Christian weight loss program that gets to the heart of your eating issues through daily devotions and "getting real" with yourself. The other part of the program is learning how to eat the way God intended. Long story short, the foods that God created are the healthiest foods that we can eat! Not all this processed junk that man has made. Third, I have implemented an exercise program into my routine. This is much easier for me in the summer, because I am in Education and have summers off. During the school year, I work full time and attend college at night. As far as exercise goes, time is my biggest challenge 9 months of the year!

Personal Information:
About 4 years ago, my husband had to have his leg amputated due to a rare heart condition. That is when the emotional eating began. When my dad died of cancer in February of last year, it really spiraled out of control. Last August, I decided to give it to God, and that was one of the best decisions that I have ever made!

    Hi, neighbor! I saw your location on the AZ team page and thought i'd check out your profile. Turns out we have a lot in common! My name is Kristen and I live a couple miles north of the community center you said you worked out at. (I haven't gotten the guts to check it out for myself yet.) I used to work with autistic preschoolers and i miss "my kids" like crazy! My father is currently diagnosed with terminal cancer. I am having trouble finding a church to call home since i married a non-believer a couple of years ago. I really admire your devotion of giving your problems to God. Your story just kinda hit home with me. I know a lot of my weight gain has been all my big stressors over the last couple of years and lack of support through it, but it's inspiring to see how you've endured through all of your hardships and are making some positive changes in your life! I hope I have the dedication to do the same. :)

    emoticon Hello happy Thursday! I am popping in all my friends page and I wanted to share something that I found. You may have already seen it, but here it is.

    Give yourself some credit! For how much you do and how hard you work. For how deeply you care and how strong you can be. And for how often you put someone else first, and for how little you expect in return. All the good things you think about other people are true of you. So pay yourself a compliment ,too!

    emoticon So here is a water for you and me, enjoy!

    I am so proud of you Christine!! You motivate me. I also was on the PRISM program in my lifetime and remember the teaching well including no sugar or white flour & reading labels...oh, and lots of water. I still go by it.. I lost 35 pounds there and now I am doing TOPS which is a more local support group for me. I also do the Women Studying The Bible SPARKTEAM and we are doing a book study called First Place by Carol Lewis. It reminds me of the PRISM group.

    God Bless & may you continue to lose to your goal. Elaine
