Hi, I'm Carla (53), Belgian, married to Eric, my wonderful 2nd husband. I have 2 daughters, Isis and Neftis and we live near Antwerp (Dutch speaking part of Belgium).
I gained about 10 kgs since 2005 due to my underactive thyroid (Hashimoto). My being 'hypo' makes losing weight and keeping it off, extra difficult.
Since I started Flexible intermittent fasting I'm finally losing weight and cms ! With the help of my team members, I plan to achieve my goal and get back to my ideal weight in a healthy way.
To get fitter, more toned and lose the weight I gained due to my underactive thyroid. To eat healthier and to drink enough water ! To excercise a few times a week (Pilates, Wii, flamenco, whatever I enjoy doing).
I'm doing 'Flexible Intermittent Fasting' aka 5:2 diet together with my husband. I'm drinking at least 8 cups a day ! I try to work out (Pilates, Wii, flamenco) at least 3 times a week.
I'm happily married with two daughters (Neftis 19 and Isis 11). I love to read, knit, watch documentaries/films/sitcoms, egyptology, relax in our garden if it's sunny and I love my weekly Flamenco class (8th year) and Pilates class.
One of my favourite sites (besides SparkPeople) is Wikipedia !
I started the Belgian Spark team.

yes I want to try out the fast-diet but I am still in an orientation phase. I am trying to find as much information as I can before starting... What I am doing already is the 16 hours fasting/ 8 hours eating as a preparation, but my aim is to do the 5:2 fast.
BTW; me too I was not around for long time. I cannot find the automatic fitness proposals any more... are they not online anymore?

Hi Carla, saw your post on the Zumba thread!!! Looks like we have a lot in common, I too am Belgian, but I live in the States. Ik ben origineel van Zaventem en mijn hele familie woont daar nog. Ik heb ook problemen met mijn schildklier.
9 pm is heel laat om te gaan Zumba doen! Maar ik denk dat als je eet rond 6 of 6.30, je eten toch voor het meeste deel verteerd zou zijn. Ik eet gewoonlijk binnen de 2 u voordat ik Zumba doe 's avonds.
Good luck on your weightloss journey!
