Hey all















Ok, so here is my introduction post. I'm ChristyF and I have a serious addiction to Mexican food and hushpuppies. My plan of choice is South Beach. My current weight is around 140, although my lowest was 135 since starting OWOA, and my goal weight is 125. I was well on my way until I moved back to my hometown after 13 years! Now I am going out much more to dinners with the family and usually about two to three times per week we go eat Mexican, fish, or barbeque(this is where the hushpuppies are!). We also went to Disney World in August and that explains a few lbs of the gain. So, I know what to do...I just need the will to do it!


Well thats the weight stuff....Here is the personal. I am married to a Marine(John) and I have two awesome boys(Cody 12 and Dylan 5). At the present time,the boys and I are not living in the same state as the hubby. He has 3 years of active duty left before he retires, but I had an amazing job opportunity with a company I love and worked for while I lived in PA, that required me to move early. The plan is that we sell our house in PA and start building our final(yay) house in my hometown. We are going to be living separate for a little while longer, but he is supposed to be moving to NC(where we are) very soon. Then we will have weekends as a family! It sounds a little strange to most, but throughout our marriage we have been through a lot of family separations due to FREQUENT deployments with his job, so we will manage just fine. I am a member of the church I grew up in and I feel so blessed to be back home. I have the most wonderful family and friends you could ever ask for and I try to spend as much time as possible with them all. I love riding horses and I have one(Belle). My grandfather has stables and when I was younger we rode a lot. It feels almost like I just picked up with everyone where I left off 13 years ago! Also, my best friend(Hi Hope) and I walk a lot and play tennis.


So I guess that's it...Now I'm off to find a picture. Nice to meet you all(again)!

Hello Christy F! You have a lovely family. And a horse? Jealous!

Thanks Tami..the horses are great, but the downside is CLEANING THE STALLS! I did that just before I posted this! But it is good exercise, right?

Oh-oh. Better get the family to develop a taste for big garden salads and other veggies. Best wishes.
