Hi! I'm Christina aka Chris. I'm 33 and I live in Media, PA. I work at a bank during the day and go to law school at night. I finally graduate this coming May (4 years of night school). I've been struggling w/ my weight since I turned 28. I like food too much and I don't like exercise enough. I'm working very hard to change that. FatSecret has been so helpful to me in working toward my ultimate goal, which is to be healthy and fit~ for good. :)

Goal #1: 150 lbs; to be achieved by 6/16/2012 (best friend's wedding)

FatSecret member since: 15 Jul 09

What's You New Year's Resolution for 2011?
My resolutions are to get better grades in law school, to not get involved in or comment on catty co-worker gossip at work, and to get down to 132 lbs by 12/31/2011.

Greek Yogurt VS Regular Yogurt
I only like the Chobani brand. Specifically, the blueberry flavor. The Pomgranate flavor is good too but if you aren't used to the seeds it might not be for you. Can't hurt to give it a whirl! Smile
