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!
