Lydia is a homeschooling mother and a fiction writer. Find out more about her here. She welcomes Twitter followers and Facebook friends who will shout at her to put down that ice cream, or tweet “DROP AND GIVE ME TEN, BITCH.” Lydia Netzer is a long time fan of fad diets, especially ones that require one to supplement a diet of pancakes with horse strength stimulants.
For this ten pound challenge, Lydia will be turning her back on sugar, processed grains, dairy, red meat, and the sweet mystery of carbonation. She will be exercising on a bicycle. Her goal is to become fit enough to compete in a bike race in the spring without needing a roll of duct tape and a team of assistants to get into those shorts.
