Hello Everyone,

My name is Nannette "Nette." This is the beginning of a long and needed journey. Ten years ago I was part of one of the United States Armed Forces. GO ARMY, HOORAH! I was in the best physical shape of my life! Once the sand and dust of Desert Storm had cleared my tour of duty came to a close. That's when my love a food began. My transition back into the civilian world didn't go over to well. The time I used to spend running and working out with my military buddies and my husband, I now spent eating and watching television. Over the years I have put on 70lbs extra.

I decided to do something about my weight Jan 05. I was doing great! Then in Oct of 2005 my husband and I received wonderful news. We were going to have another child! Everything was going great until in my fifth month we lost the baby. I had lost my child and gained the 20lbs I has lost back plus 30lbs more. I fell into an emotional slump. I stopped exercising and basically ceased to function.

Then in Feb 06 I found Sparks People. I decided to try again. I have since lost 20lbs so far, whoohoo! I am also a mother of two beautiful girls 12 & 15. My girls work out with me now, which motivates me to no end and the support of my husband is phenomenal!

My transformation has begun and I hope to continue to meet my goal of being Fit & Forty!

My Goals:
My goal was to lose 70 pounds by the end of 2006 and get back to my Army weight. I still realize that exercise more often and healthy eating is the key to my success.

In 2006 I've lost 32lbs. Now in 2007 I've got to finish the job.

My Program:
I am on a caloric intake of 1200-1550 a day. Making sure I get in my 64oz of cool clear water each day. I'm planning my meals ahead of time, especially lunch so there's none of the I forgot lunch let's go to Micky D's.

    Hi...This is going to be this best thing that I have done for myself. Nette, like you, I'm married with children and would have to say that I was a "hot thing" back in the day...Well, when we were married I was 115 while I'm 170 and I'm not even bloated?!? I need encouragement but most of all...I want this to be fun...Hope to hear from you and your story is very encouraging!

    HI there! Very welcome to Getting Buffed team ((HUGS)) We look forward to helping you get where you are trying to go in your fitness journey. If you go to my sparkpage, you will get the Team's Admin Page that has a intro to the team. That's my page too and I write in the comm journal...anytime you need me, you can email me via that page. Our original founder of the team (Buffedstuff) can be seen in the team archives. She was a military lady, 179 and over 40 and got down to 119 and 15-18%BF. For 10 years she dealt with slight paralysis on her right side due to a botched operation. She overcame all that and you can see a scar on her side if you look close. She blogs still on her page and is quite inspiration but is offline now because she wants to spend time with her grandbabies more often. The team goes by the motto, we are all team leaders and all pitch in to make the team run and I am merely the sp HQ liason. We also care and we share which means we all have wisdom we share and we all support one another to reach our goals. Anytime you have some wisdom to share, jump right in the threads. Glad to have you on board the team :)
