thankfully I changed my goal into three segments. The first goal I reached and thought how easy it is to lose so I might as well aim for a lower weight. Today I am 1.5 lbs away from that goal and feeling so good I am aiming for another 10 lbs loss, which will be my weight I had before I had children and in my 20's. I also want to fit into size 4/6, not 6/8 like now, and I am flirting with the idea of wearing the same size of my girls (size 2 - 4). But that is because of a selfish reason, I would like to wear their throw away jeans. No matter what, I am now slim enough to really like the way I look.

Member Since: 11/17/2009

Fitness Minutes: 6,865

My Goals:
First I want to have a healthy BMI around 20. To feel good in my old jeans and to live a long healthy life. To feel slim and trim and to get that strut walk back. According to Seaglassqueen, I should start the strut first and that supports the mind. Ok, ok now I am strutting and loving my body. It deserves it!

My Program:
I enjoy Dr. Fuhrman, Tana Amen's recipes (the brain doctor's wife), and Jon Gabriel's visualizations. I feel better without gluten and low carb meals. I love the no diet mentality, and I am watching youtubes from Jenna la Flamme, who is also very cute and motivational. Her plan is pleasurable weight loss, and listening to the body what it wants, not ego. You know who, the one voice that says you are full, but your ego says, no way I want more.

Personal Information:
Nicki, from Phoenix, Arizona. I lived 36 years in Switzerland.
Upon returning to my hometown, Phoenix, I finally got to finish my B.S. in Psychology at ASU. I am now retired and enjoying being a woman of pleasure!

Other Information:
I believe in the good in the world. I refuse to listen to negative information and I believe in myself. I love living in Phoenix again, and hope to never leave Arizona again. My husband is Swiss and he feels the same...for
Switzerland. We live together 3 months, then are separated 3 months, then it starts all over again. it works for us.

    Hi Nicki...I have only been on the BFC diet for 3 days. I have lost 2 pounds in that time. I know they allow a lot of food. I don't think I like the 100 diet. I will stick to the original for now. Besides, I paid $4.99 for the app on my phone. LOL. I guess a person gets stuck on most every diet. I am happy you commented about. I won't feel quite so alone. I hope you don't mind that I friended you. I had been gone from Sparks since 2010 when I found out I have bone cancer. Anyway, I decided to come back and try it again. I deleted all but 2 of my old friends for some stupid reason. I guess because some of them were gone and others I couldn't remember.
    I also have the Eat To Live book. Let me know how you like it.
    I know it's hard to burn the calories. I try to walk, but some days I am simply exhausted. Some days I walk 12,000 steps, other days 3,000. I wish you luck in your diet and exercise. Shirley

    Nicki, Hi! Thanks for the green tea! I see you recently joined the ETL Team. I wish you much success with Dr Fuhrman's emoticon plan! We can do this together! I think the hardest thing for me was giving up coffee. I don't miss it! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    It was great to hear from you again. Let me know how your new diet works out. The body does get wise to doing the same thing too long so it's good to mix it up. Take care my Spark friend!

    Are you still having your 2 minute cake in the evening?
    I'm thinking it would be easier on my teeth than the raw almonds.
