Hi everyone and welcome to BODY REBOOTED - your one-stop blog for Health & Fitness - featuring Recipes, Nutrition Tips, Motivation, Fitspiration, & DDP Yoga!

My name is Christina and I created this blog to share my journey with you!  If you are looking to lose weight, gain strength, eat healthy, take back your health, and/or need motivation and inspiration - then you’ve come to the right place!  Just over one year ago I suffered a loss from a very late miscarriage.  This loss resulted in depression, anxiety, weight gain, and a huge body image problem.  I was the unhappiest I’ve ever been and  it wasn’t just affecting me - it was affecting my entire family!  I knew I had to make a permanent change and so I set off on a journey to lose weight and conquer my demons to become the happy & healthy person I knew I could be.

In March 2013, my hubby showed me Arthur Boorman’s inspirational video.  I knew right then, that DDP Yoga was for me.  I dove in headfirst and have been going strong ever since.  DDP Yoga, coupled with healthy eating, has brought me to a weight loss of 60 pounds and has given me the opportunity to take my health back into my own hands!   I changed careers, became certified in nutrition & wellness and an now the 1st ever female DDP Yoga Instructor!!  My ultimate goal is to pay it forward by sharing my knowledge of nutrition and fitness so others can start their journey to take back their health!

    Oh my. When I started reading this post I was full of excitement about your journey. Imagine my surprise a few paragraphs later. I have this inate ability for sympathy and am still crying as I write this. I am so sorry to hear about the loss of your baby and can’t imagine the horror you must have gone through. I’m happy that you’ve found an outlet for your sorrow and obviously you don’t let anything stop you from achieving your goals. You are a true inspriation! Many thanks for stopping by my blog and following! I look forward to your successes!

      Thank you so much. I just hope that I can help others that may have gone through, or are currently going through, something similar. I think it helps knowing that you’re not alone and that you CAN achieve your goals. :)

    Thanks for sharing with the world! I’m just getting going (Day 30 DDP), but I have to say it’s really great to see pics/experiences from another 6’1″ woman. Gives me some realistic goals to shoot for, especially since I’m starting at about the same weight/size as you did. Keep it up!!
