Having kids is pretty far off for me, but I want to be able to pass down and teach my future children great habits and values that will keep them healthy, strong and positive. I don’t want them, esp my girls, to ever have to deal with poor health, body issues, self-doubt/pity, negativity or any of the other crap I went through. Which means, I’ve gotta master these habits and get myself to a happy place in order to lead by example!

Hi! I'm Christina, a 26-year-old who’s been struggling with weight, and subsequently self-esteem/confidence, for most of her life. It’s a hard realization to make that I’ve consciously/unconsciously allowed my weight and insecurities (perceived or otherwise) to rule so much of my life – mostly in limiting and negative ways. But not anymore! It’s gone on far too long and its time that I right some wrongs with my mind, body and soul.
While weight-loss is mainly a physical transformation, there has to be a mental journey as well. So, in addition to posting inspiring messages, motivational photos, and practical advice, this Tumblr will be where I can write down and work through some of my issues as I take a serious look at why I’ve failed in the past, where I am now, and where I hope to be soon. Plus writing things down will hopefully give me some accountability!
So here goes…
