Let me introduce myself

Hello stranger, friend, blogger or future support group,

My name is Christie and I would like to start off by asking for your help. For the past few years I have struggled with my weight-loss journey, I have tried everything from microwaved meal programs to restricted diets and crazy cleanses.Β  I have come to the realization that a support group is what I was lacking. This being said I am hoping to be able to develop an online support group to keep myself accountable to . With the support I believe 1. I will be successful 2. I will inspire others 3. I will give the support back to others dealing with the same struggle.

I hope that you enjoy following/supporting my journey.

Hearts,

Christie

    • Thank you so much Heidi! I love the way you write and look forward to your posts as well. I am here to support you whenever you need me πŸ™‚ 2013 is our year and we CAN do this!

    • Thanks so much! I am so fortunate to have such wonderful people to support me. This is definitely not a challenge I could face on my own. I am from Vancouver, BC one of the most beautiful cities in the world πŸ™‚

  1. Hey Christie!
    You can talk with me any time!
    Im in need of support as well.
    Weight loss is a journey that most face.

  2. Hi Christie,

    I really like your blog, and I thought I’d offer you some words of hard-earned advice which I hope will help to motivate you:

    1. Don’t be hard on yourself, instead be honest with yourself.
    2. Set yourself a single goal, but be very specific about what that goal is.
    3. Define your reason WHY you want to achieve your goal, and again be very specific. Saying “I want to be fit, and healthy” isn’t good enough. Your reason must be powerful, and by itself be able to drive you to want to succeed regardless of the pitfalls that will occur along the journey.
    4. Lose “I can’t”. Replace it with “I can”, and “I will”
    5. Accept the bad with the good. The “bad” will offer you experiences to learn from, and the “good” will be the reward for learning well.
    6. Surround yourself with people who are willing to motivate you simply because they wish to see you succeed for yourself, and not for their own reasons. This is your support network.
    7. When you reach a low point, push yourself to seek a metaphorical “but kicking” from your support network to help you get back on track.
    8. Enjoy your journey. Live it, breathe it, and be inspired by it.

    Feel free to hit me up any time for a little long-distance support and encouragement. Perhaps it’s selfish of me, but I find inspiring others motivates me to succeed in my own journey as well.

    I won’t wish you good luck for your journey. Instead, I’ll wish you good motivation! πŸ˜‰

  3. Stumbled on your blog while I’m looking for some fellow weight-loss-journey folks. Thanks for sharing and keep it up! I’ll be following right along with ya! πŸ™‚

  4. Hey, Christie! Love the idea of the blog and will definitely join your rooting section. If there’s anything I can do, like call and say “Don’t eat THAT!” just let me know. Otherwise, I look forward to following your journey. Great tag line, by the way πŸ™‚

  5. Hey, Christie,
    may i suggest you sign up for MY FItness Pal. It helps you track your calories and exercise and gives you an idea of how many cals you should eat a day, based on your goals and your weight. Even if you try it for a week and decide you don’t like it, I can tell you from experience, even before using this particular cal tracking program, it wasn’t until I kept some sort of food diary that I truly became aware of how much I was actually eating (and drinking), calorie wise.
    Good luck!

  6. Thank you so much for the tip! My mom had been using MFP for awhile now and has had alot of success. The diet that I was following didn’t really count calories so I haven’t used it yet. I am looking at switching my plan to Weight Watchers or The Eat Clean Diet and if I do that I will be sure to utalize it. πŸ™‚
