Howdy Y'all

Yes, I'm so super late with my intro post BUT better late than never, right?

If you didn't guess from my title, I'm in Texas, Dallas TX.

My name is Cristina and I have been a part of OWOA since February 2007, I think that's when I stumbled upon the site.

I'm married and have a 4 year old daughter. I also work full-time outside of the home as a software developer.

Before I got pregnant, I had lost quite a bit of weight, approximately 70lbs, by following Body for Life. Towards the end of that journey, I switched to South Beach because I had hit a plateau. Then I got pregnant, had my daughter, struggled to get back into a routine and ended up putting on more weight. I was finally able to get back into the groove and figure out how to juggle home, husband, daughter, work, friends, life, etc.

I originally started on Weight Watchers weighing in at 252.5 I then switched to Body for Life, did a little South Beach, met with a nutritionist and now I just do my own thing...a combo of Body for Life/meal plan from nutritionist.

My problem is not lack of exercise, I LOVE LOVE LOVE to exercise. My problem is food. I love food...sweets to be exact. I do fine all day and then the sun goes down and my sweet tooth comes out.

Well, that's about it for now....OH! one last thing...my sister Claudia recently became on OWOA-er. :)
