My name's Christie, and I live in a small town in rural NSW, Australia. I've been overweight as long as I can remember, and was bullied for it at school. The bullying lead to painful shyness around new people, which made it very hard for me in my career as an accountant (contrary to popular belief, it's not all involves building professional relationships with coworkers, clients, and other professionals). I've worked very hard over the last few years and feel like more recently I've become more comfortable with who I am as a person, which has given me more confidence and the ability to not care about what other people think of me. I finally feel like I a can accept myself, and love myself, and put my own needs first.
We had tried for a long time to start a family, before eventually resorting to IVF after some serious health issues that were dealt with by my amazing fertility specialist. After several rounds of IVF I finally fell pregnant for the first time in my life! Logan was born big and strong and healthy, and has continued to grow the same. My life is forever changed by this amazing little human, and I know I want to set him a good example of what a healthy life looks like.
While I've tried to lose weight in the past, even here on Spark, I've always failed because I could never fully commit myself. I always had those nagging thoughts, that feeling that I would never be a healthy weight so why bother even trying? But now I feel like the time is right. I am doing this for me, and my little family that means the world to me.

Other Information:
I have PCOS and insulin resistance, and a history of pre-cancerous cells in my uterine lining (endometrial hyperplasia). I take a high dose of progesterone as a preventative measure. Unfortunately, this hinders my weight loss efforts and has caused me to gain a lot of weight since the birth of my son.
