Do you want to lose 10, 30, 50 or more pounds? Have you recently reached your weight loss goal but want to maintain it? Are you willing to dedicate yourself to a healthy lifestyle? Then this blog is for you!

I have lost 118 pounds and have maintained the weight loss for two years. One of the things I have learned during the weight loss process is that it is much easier to reach and maintain your goal weight if you surround yourself with like-minded individuals to support you in the process (whether they be in person or online).

I also have learned that learning as much as possible about healthy living gives you the knowledge and expertise needed to lose weight the “right” way. So this blog includes regular posts, a book list, website list, TV list, video list and book and website of the month. In addition, there is a recipe of the month and product review section. Visitors to Weight Loss Aficionado can just enjoy the site for informational purposes or can comment on posts, ask questions, share resources, their triumphs and pitfalls during the weight loss process.

Try Kim's Magic Pop!

I was at Costco the other day and saw an interesting looking item call "Kim's Magic Pop". It looked like crispy pitas. Since I love pita bread, but hate the calories, I picked a bag up to read the nutritional information. I was happy to see that each "Magic Pop" has only 15 calories! Imagine a product that looks like, and is the size of pita bread, 15 calories! I bought it and immediately opened the package when I got home to try one. They are light and airy like "Wasa Crisp and Light Crackers" but are about twice the size and have a fresh popped taste. They are made of a blend of wheat, brown rice and corn.

Costco had the original flavor but they currently come in 7 flavors and will be adding 3 additional flavors shortly. See the flavors below.

If your looking for an ultra low calorie, crunchy alternative to chips and crackers try Kim's Magic Pop! For more information go to www.kimsmagic

Try Nia Dance!

My gym recently added a class called NIA. It is a non-impact aerobic class that is performed barefoot. If you take kickboxing, Zumba and yoga classes at the gym it will be very easy to learn since it is a combination of dance, martial arts and yoga moves. It is a fun, energizing and spiritually uplifting class!

"Nia draws from Tai Chi, Tae Kwon Do, Aikido, jazz dance, modern dance, Duncan dance, yoga, Alexander Technique and Teachings of Moshe Feldenkrais. Every class offers a unique combination of 52 moves that correspond with the main areas of the body: the base, the core and the upper extremities."-www.

Below you can watch a few short videos on NIA.
