Yes I Can!

Yes I can, and I will...again. I lost 45 lbs. in 2006 and 15 of those pounds have slowly crept back on. And at that time I still had the last 10 to lose! Well, I have made up my mind.

With the breakdown of how many carbs, fats, and proteins I should eat a day I feel as if I have more choices. And no meetings! Just the support of my fellow health conscience comrades online from all over North America and beyond.

I am excited and feeling confident that "Yes I can" lose these 25 pounds with work, determination and support.

My Goals:
Lose 25lbs and firm up my body. Prove to myself that I can do it because I know I can if I work at it and stay focused

My Program:
Eating a balanced diet that is no more than 1,200 - 1,400 calories a day.

Walking and Wii Fit.

Personal Information:
I am from San Jose, CA and work as a technical writer/localization manager for a well known company in the bay area. I have been doing this for the last 20 years or so. (boy, that makes me feel old)

Other Information:
I am an avid reader. I like most genres except horror. My 8 year old grand-daughter and I are reading the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series written by Rick Riordan right now. The books are surprisingly interesting and I love the conversation my GD and I have about them.
