What advice would Lisa give to someone struggling with weight loss? “Don’t give up! Dreams can come true. I lost the weight, I found my true love, and I spent months traveling in Asia. If you had asked me if I thought I could lose the first five pounds, I would have said, I will try but I am not sure. I lost more than fifty pounds after turning thirty-nine and have kept it off for over four years. I know you can do it!”
Years ago, as my then-new boyfriend and I strolled along Santa Monica beach at sunset, I announced, “So, I lost 12 pounds and now I’m skinny.” He muttered, “I didn’t notice. And you’re not skinny.” At that moment, I wasn’t sure if the earth would swallow me whole or my boyfriend should be zapped off the planet Star Trek style. My feelings were hurt, but later, as I reevaluated his statement, I realized 12 pounds was just the first step toward my weight-loss goal, and although I was on the road to success, I had many more miles to travel.

Lisa Niver | Sierra Club:
"Skiers with visual impairments require continuous auditory cues. It’s why Stokes speaks to her student, Jennifer Kennedy, constantly. If Kennedy, who is blind, cannot hear Stokes, she is to tap her helmet. If the disconnect continues throughout a count to five, she is trained to stop skiing altogether, and drop her uphill hip to the snow."
Women' Health: RESOLUTION: STOP GAINING WEIGHT
"My resolution to stop gaining weight ultimately led to losing weight. I had a fight with my doctor when she said I gained weight. Since my clothes still fit, I didn't believe her. That's when I realized that I had gained weight (she showed me in the chart). So I made a resolution to stop gaining. I started by observing my environment. For example, if I stopped buying chocolate ice cream, I couldn't eat it for breakfast. That was helpful. I also stopped buying the giant jar of chocolate covered nuts at Costco. Eating three nuts at a time 10 times a day was definitely not on the list for me anymore. Though it came off slowly, I ended up losing more than 50 pounds." —Lisa Niver, lost 58 pounds in one year

I loved seeing the presidents of Mount Rushmore at the Den on Sunset at Travel Massive Los Angeles. I never expected to selfie with them on a Thursday night. Thanks to Kelley, Jim, Mara, Kaitlyn, Gina and a special thanks to Wanda for all her help on my first trip to visit part of the GREAT EIGHT!
I was invited to Experience Scottsdale in November 2016 and was stunned with the absolute beauty of the art, architecture and landscape. I loved my time in this part of Arizona and cannot wait to return.
Where did I stay in Scottsdale? at The Hotel Valley Ho. I loved the charm of this iconic location and the best view of Camelback mountain for sunrise and sunset from the 8th floor rooftop.
