I think it's cool that we got someone from all the way over in England!

Hello, HELLO... HELLOOOO-O-O-OO? Anyone there? Oh what a shame! I'm new and really hoped to be able to hook up with other JV fans who are more familiar with how to do her routines and also to be spurred on by their successes.

If anyone happens to read this, please please reply!

Thanks.

Jo from England

Hi! I'm from England but, from the time I discovered Joyce Vedral when on one of our regular vacations in western MA, I've been determined to take up her programme. It was a while ago and her book has been sitting on my shelf whilst I've been growing bigger, and more miserable, but I discovered SP a couple of weeks ago and am as excited about it all as a toddler at Christmas!

I am an extremely zippy just-turned-can't-believe-it 60 year old going on 39, and lead a very full life. I have no children or grandchildren, but I am animal mad, have a retired Champion Old English Sheepdog and 2 rescue crossbreeds, several pet birds, a hand-reared wild rabbit and I am a hedgehog rescuer. I judge several breeds of dogs, am Chairman of our parish, Advertiser and writer of two columns in a local magazine, and I'm a passionate gardener with lots of unusual or rare plants. I'm on a 2year horticultural course at one of the university colleges and am an enthusiastic committee member of an Apple Mac forum. Did I mention my husband? Oh yes - he's a slim fitness freak and still a flier in the RAF.

I see that this team isn't as active as others, but I hope to get as much support and friendship from it as I'm getting from other teams. Finding SP has been a miracle and I really do believe I'm going to rid my demons for once and for all AT LAST! I've totally changed my attitude, thanks to SP, and I'm not thinking about timescales at all. I'm concentrating on learning how to eat properly and not graze on rubbish in addition to my beloved fruits an veggies, and I'm already learning to stay calm and accept that the weight will melt in its own timescale and to enjoy the journey.

I would love to hear from anyone who feels they can help me along the way - and I will do my utmost to return that kindness in the same way.

Welcome back! I'm so glad you decided to start over, don't give up, even through the frustrating parts, it's STILL worth it in the end! You can do this, I just know it!

Please see response # 5. That's me! I got frustrated and completely deleted my account and started over a couple of months ago. I'm in Central Pennsylvania, but have lived in Michigan, California, Washington state, Wisconsin and Maine.

I'm from Indiana, but I currently live in Wisconsin. At the end of the month, I'm moving to South Carolina... (whew, I'm exhausted already) but plan to try to keep my streak going for Joyce Vedral's workouts. I'm going to do the definition workout for a week or two, then maybe change up to Top Shape. I'm trying to build muscle and definition both as well as get rid of some of this fat.

Even though I didn't lose any weight last week, I DID lose a whole INCH off my hips, an inch off my thighs and a half inch off my biceps and my chest (the braline) So that rocks. :-) I'm glad SP lets us measure, cause if it weren't for that I wouldn't have known that this week wasn't a total bust. I might have been discouraged.

Hello Deanna emoticon to Joyce Vedral W's team!!!
I am so excited you decided to join us. You really have your hands full!!!, how do you manage to do all those things???? My first encounter with weights was with Weight Lifting Made Easy and was able to shed some inches and pounds, that is why I know the sytem really works. Please join us log your excercise minutes, drink your water and eat more veggies and fruits and you will see results. I know that time is a big challenge, but.... trust me in this. If you work out at least 20 minutes a day you will see much improvement in your body and mood. Good Luck and remember we are together facing the same challenge.

íHola!

I'm new to the team. My name is Deanna Smith, and I live in Little Rock, Arkansas. I'm a 36-year-old mother of three. I also work part-time and go to school full time with a double major in Spanish and Professional/Technical Writing.

I learned about Joyce Vedral several years ago, and I started her workouts again in December with the book Weight Training Made Easy. Now I've bought a set of videos that I'm using: Quick Quartet, Definition, and On the Ball. I honestly don't know if I could get as good of a workout any other way because her routines are so efficient--perfect for my busy schedule.

Nice to "meet" you all!
