So what should I tell you about me? I hate these things.
stands up “Hi, My name is Christine, I’m 25 years old and I’m a foodoholic”
I live in Australia, I have a creative job that is pretty good. Ive been with my partner for 8 years, engaged for 6, and I own a cat that thinks hes a prince.
I have lots of different activities I like doing; Rock climbing, trampolining, any crafts, sculpture, painting, fishing, camping etc. I tend to become obsessed with one thing and then throw myself into it head first 100%. Of course I soon become bored with it and start looking for the next thing to obsess over.
I have always been fat, I was the fat child, the fat teenager and now I’m the fat adult who sits at her desk dreaming of the day when photos aren’t a shock to the system. When I can look in a mirror and not think “some fat girl’s wearing my face!” The big reveal post weight loss when I can bump into people I haven’t seen in a while and they say “OMG Christine you look amazing!” and I can respond “Oh, Thanks” feigning modesty but secretly wanting them to keep going!
I like to say that I’ve tried everything, but that’s not entirely true. Ive tried lots of different things before, but never for more than a few weeks or months at the most. When I dont get the results I want, I give up. I know what my biggest problem is – I eat too much of the wrong foods and don’t exercise enough.
So that’s what I’m here to rectify, I have joined a great CrossFit, and I am trying to live a Paleo-esque lifestyle. Unfortunately I have about 50kg to lose and I’m very impatient with the whole process!
A special thank you to Ben and Georgia at CrossFit Moreland, and a shout out to the whole CrossFit Moreland community, you guys rock.
