Hi, I'm Nan

Hi, I'm Nan and this is a picture of my family and I. This picture is actually a few years old, but it's the only full body picture that I can find at the moment. This is the weight that I am trying to get back to.

In the last few years, since this picture, I gained twenty pounds and I have to say I didn't like it! I tried hopping on board with the Christmas Crunch, but I got sick and my asthma flared up and then I got busy and blah, blah, get the picture. I lost my motivation.

I am now motivated to once again lose those 20 pounds. I have already lost five of it, so fifteen to go! I am currently doing The Shred, by Jillian Michaels. I am doing it five to six days a week. I also bought something called The Accelerator, which is put out by the Pilates people. This was about $60 but it comes with five dvd's and I have to say that I am having a blast with it! I hope it actually works......they say it does.

Beyond losing the weight I just want to keep working out because it is healthier for our lungs and our hearts. Also, as I age, I know that exercise is good for balance, the joints, etc.

My downfall is my sweet tooth. I love chocolate and love munching on m&ms or fritos during the day. I'm a snacker.

I just want to take care of the health the Lord has given me, and hopefully continue to exercise and work at eating healthier, so that it becomes a lifestyle for me.

The way I see it, summer is coming and it's going to come whether we lose the weight/inches or not. So I'd rather kick it up a notch, and be more disciplined and have it come with me weighing a few less pounds, than have it come and go and finding me at the same weight and wishing I'd been more disciplined.

Ok Nan, you are on the right track then. Only 15 pounds to go now. But don´t look at 15 pounds, go one by one, week by weekm little by little.

Sometimes I have the same weight for 4 weeks, but the key is no to get discourage and keep up a good and healthy diet.
