About the Author

Interact directly  with Nadia at her facebook fan page. She’s there nearly every day and loves the interaction. To visit her primary online home, go to Where Women Talk.

Nadia was one of several Minnesota women featured in Joan Kennedy’s, “Unlocking the Secrets of Successful Women.” Listen as she shares her story:

Eighty eight pounds in 14 months (August ’07 to Oct ’08). My original plan was to lose around 40 pounds. I nearly doubled that figure in less than a year by using this technique (78 pounds in the first 10 months). When I shimmied into my old favorite pair of skinny jeans, my mission was accomplished. It was official, nine dress sizes. I shrunk nine dress sizes in 14 months using this method. The finish line and maintenance program was at hand. I KNEW I was on to something that would work for others, and I wanted to share it.

Not long ago, I accepted an invitation to participant in the ongoing study being conducted by NWCR. The National Weight Control Registry is tracking over 5,000 individuals who have lost significant amounts of weight and kept it off for long periods of time. I look forward to contributing to this study as I continue my efforts to maintain a healthy weight.

I’m not crazy about showing my before photos, but just LOOK at the difference! Changing hair color and makeup wasn’t the answer, but losing weight made me look, feel, and think like a new person.

I know I’m not alone. Getting derailed by the stresses of life (including taking care of everyone else while neglecting self) happens to the majority of women in America at some point in their lives. The methods I used in Thinking Skinny helped get me back on track.
