Here goes!

I'm a 57 year old mother of four, and I've been playing with Spark people for about 4 years now! Is it really that long?
I did lose over 20 pounds but health and personal problems have meant exercise has become difficult and I just gave up.
I've put the 20 pounds back on which isn't helping anything so I really have to change my life style to help to maintain the fitness I have and adapt to the health problems I can't change. It will be a real challenge for me.

My Program:
So far, I find following the Spark programme set for me works as long as I stick to it.
Stick within my nutritional limits.
Do the recommended cardiovascular and strength exercises.
Be kind to myself, and be consistent.
I started running with Sparkpeople and began to enjoy it, but my knee and hip complained to I'll have to do something less painful. Swimming is the obvious one, but it is a it like a busman's holiday.

Until recently I lived in a big old house and hosted foreign language students but we recently moved to a smaller house and I just live with my youngest daughter unless my older one is home from uni resting on the sofa.
I have four children. My oldest is a teacher and lives in Londonwith his girlfriend.
My second son and his girlfriend live in Oxtead near London.
My 22-year-old daughter is at university and my 15-year-oldis coming up to her GCSE's this year.

I'm just doing Pilates, some gentle keep fit and walking at the moment. I might start back on the elliptical machine next week after my gum stitches come out. My dentist did seem to err on the cautious side. He said I would need Nurofen for 24 hours, but I haven't even opened the packet.

Thanks for asking about the porridge. I tried a different flavour this morning. I think I will have to put in lots of fruit if I am going to eat it every day. It definitely gets me through to lunchtime though and stops the mid-morning munchies. So it's worth persevering. This is the closest emoticon I can find to someone throwing up:

Thank you so much for the kind comment on my page! I really appreciate it :) It has taken me a long time but I'm finally learning to look at things differently and focus on myself as a whole instead of being fixated on the numbers.

I'm adding you as a friend! Have a lovely weekend!

i am very impressed by your poem and how great to be able to write "as I was running". We've had snow flurries all day here but nothing has settled .....yet.

Nothing, m'lud. I was innocently proceeding in an easterly direction. It was midday. But it was raining and the police must have wondered what this mad woman was doing walking in the rain. Or it could have been the swag bag I was carrying.
