My Goals:
Longterm I want to loose 130 lbs. But in doing so I want to make a lifestlye change and not just diet. I'm want to have a healthy lifestlye which includes a healthy weight, exercise, and healthy eating.

My Program:

1) I drink lots of water; I always have a bottle with me.

2) I limit caffiene. No more than 1-2 beverages a day.

3) Lots of fruits and veggies, as well as whole grain foods. Whole wheat pasta anyone?

4) I try to incorporate packed lunches and portable healthy snacks so I don't get stuck choosing a unhealthy option.

5) Planning my weekly menu, especially suppers and trying out new recipes.

6) Tracking is very important and I do everyday for every bite I consume.

7) Exercise. I'm going to the gym, and also hired a personal trainer to help me twice a week. I'm now at the gym 4 times a week for both strength and cardio. At home I use a swiss ball to do some things infront of the tv

8) Walking both with the doggy and occasional hikes... also walking more at work.

Personal Information:
Hi I'm Nichole and live in Ontario, Canada. I'm a RN, graduated 1 year ago. I have to work shift work, so that brings its own challenge. I've made alot of mental changes over the past year as well as diet changes so now its time to put it all together and deal with this weight issue.

Other Information:
To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave this world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch or a redeemed social condition; it know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded. --R.W. Emerson
