Thank you for joining us, Vickie!!! That's my mom's name ;) We will be starting up a Spring Challenge in the next few weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for more info to follow on that on the 'General Discussion' board. Glad to have you here with us. We are a small but mighty team, and look forward to this journey with you.
Focus on what you CAN do, instead of what you can't!
It's not about lowering the weight on the scale; it's about increasing the weight on the bar!
Stop weighing yourself! Focus on eating healthier & getting stronger. Looking better will simply be an added bonus!
Hi, I'm Vicki. I live in Titusville, Fl. I'm 55 years old and about 80 lbs over weight. I've been trying for over a year to get my weight down and all I've done is yo-yo back and forth. So I've started a lower carb plan like I did back in the 80's ( I lost 105 lbs in 13 months and kept it off for 18 years), and I'm hoping to get the weight back off over the course of the next 2 years. I'm not nearly as active as I used to be so I know the weight won't come off as fast as it did back then. Plus I've gone into full menopause so my body tends to have a mind of it's own. I lose motivation easily so I'm hoping the team will help keep me motivated to stay on track. Thanks for having me.
