My Intro - Lynn L.

Hello sisters! My name is Lynn Lopez and I am 43 years old. I have 4 children and 3 3/4 grandchildren, all precious gifts from our Father. I started this last challenge teetering between 151-155 and ended at a steady 149. Today I am at 147 and my goal is to be consistently under 125. I'm only 5'23/4" so that would be my ideal weight. I've always been pretty strong (thanks to my 4 brothers growing up) and active due to all my kids. Now I'm a P.E. Teacher at Northeast Christian Academy for 4th-11th grade so I get my fair share of exercise. My problem is my busy schedule, poor choices in eating on the run, and oh yeah, I love food! All of it! During this last challenge, I've maintained my workouts but started eating smaller portions, cut out some sugars, well, I guess that's about it. But I've actually lost some weight. So now that I'm motivated, I'm going to go into this next challenge with an actual goal to lose at least 10 pounds more. I really miss my 501's!!! Thankfully, I've never really been big on sweets so holidays don't affect me so much (except for all those potatoes and gravy!). So pray for me sisters! I'm weak! :) Fun & games aside, I love this fellowship of healthbound Christian sisters. God brought us all together and I'm so thankful for you all. May God bless this fellowship and this opportunity to be His light in this dark world... Happy Trials!

Hi Lynn,
It's so very nice to meet you. This is my first time participating and I'm really excited about the great motivator it's going to be.
Have a fabulous day.

Hi Lynn,

It is so nice to meet you. Unlike you though, I love my pastries. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays and I love to bake. I guess I'll have to take all the goodies I bake to church.

I look forward to doing this challenge together.

Wow, Lynn, I can so relate to your busy schedule. I actually work at the YMCA and you would think that since I'm an employee that I would be working out all the time, but between work, raising a family, going to school for my master's degree, and ministry, I never have the time that I would like to schedule in a workout! I will be praying for you in this area. (And when God reveals the secret of how to exercise with a busy work load, please share. LOL.)

I also like food quite a bit. Not the sweets, just the good ol' starchy stuff like pasta, rice, and potatoes. We will just have to learn to cut back on portions and limit some of these items.

Hope that you do great with your goals this next 10 weeks and are able to keep them up even beyond the challenge time. Wishing you the best!
