Hi all! :)

I would like to introduce myself as Christy. I'm kind of new to this, meaning I've had this account for a while but I'm just now starting to actively use it. The reason I'm starting now is well, for several reasons. The first reason for joining back is because of my husband, he has an account on here and the people seem to help him a lot motivational wise and it really keeps him going. The second reason is because I have a few medical problems that I've been dealing with for a few years now that are holding me back from experiencing certain things in life. The third and final reason is that I've always had a problem with my weight, the yo-yo affect. I start to lose weight and just when I realize I'm doing good, I start doing bad again and gain it all back. I'm ready for a change and I'm completely focused, I just need a little extra push! So, if you would like to add me, I'm always happy to accept new friends!! :) Thank you for reading and I look forward to seeing and hearing from you guys!

    Welcome! You're already ahead of the game because you have a motivated and supportive husband with the same goals as you at home! Lean on each other and take this opportunity to build on your marriage. What a great chance to get closer with your husband while bettering yourself as individuals.
