Hello again

Yes, I know I have had a series of false starts doing this program, but I have decided I am going to try again. I think that I have a tendency to both overthink this program (when it ultimately is a very simple concept), and to have an all-or-nothing mentality- I have a red N day, I often just want ...

Hey! So let me say that I logged in after a very long hiatus and was VERY freaked out to see H2Orange mentioned! I thought I was the only person to have tried the NS system :D seemed like no one else had ever heard of it. LA, I agree with you- NS seems much more restrictive than NOS. Although I too ...

What to order...

Well, it depends. You should order the More system if you have lots of pounds/inches to lose, lots of health issues, lots of candles on your birthday cake, etc- this system has helped many women for whom the Total System started out to be too strenuous. But at one time, it was only the Total System ...

T-tapp

Tricia, it works great! The trick is to stay consistant with it! I lost a few clothing sizes when I was doing t-tapp on a consistant basis- but if you stop, you gain it back! The exercises are a mix of muscle/core building, cardio, yoga, dance theory, and pilates. She does have some moves on her sit...

I am, amazingly, starting to have more successful days than failures! My hardest thing lately has been avoiding an afternoon snack.
