Shared Food & Fitness Trackers
My name is Maria. I am in the process of winning the battle with my weight. I refuse to be fat forever.
I am almost 40 years old, married to my best friend and the love of my life, and we have 3 daughters. I will not be talking about my babies to much, this is the INTERNET after all.
I am a follower, servant and friend of Jesus Christ. He is the Love of my Life, my Safe Place and the my Favorite Person to spend time with. My Absolute North.
My Dwelling Place, Secret Place, Shadow, Refuge, Fortress, Confident Trust, Deliverer, Truth, Shield, Buckler, The One Who Satisfies my heart. (Ps91)
I want to weigh 57kg by December 2013.
I want to run 5km 3x a week by December 2013.
I want to maintain my weight between 57kg and 63kg for the rest of my life.
I am tracking everything I eat on SPARK.
I am eating 6 small meals 2 hours apart.
I am doing the 5km walk/run program from SPARK.
I do weight training 3x a week.
I had a RNY Gastric Bypass on 14/05/2013.
It was one of the best days of my life. I lost 20kg three months before Pouch Day, as I call it, and am in the process of losing the remaining 40kg.

Hey you!! I don't know if you will get this or not. Think about you and thought I'd stop by to see how you are....how are you doing since your surgery? Hope you and your family are well. I'm still needing to get busy and put the ol' nose to the grindstone and start losing weight. My swallowing issue is rearing its ugly head again, so need to slim down if I need to have surgical intervention for it...send me a message if/when you have time! Are you on FB? Hope to talk with you soon! Mary

Oh my goodness - is it too early to say happy new year! I have missed you, I don't know how I missed your comment on my spark page. I am fine, just returned to work after almost four months of leave. At least taking the leave forced my bosses to get me help in the office, so I hope it will no longer be so stressful.
I spent the first two months of my leave just lazying around and doing the bare minimum exercise that I could get away with. I had not realized how tired I was. But in January I got back to being serious and I'm close to undoing all the damage I did.
Sorry about your laptop, were you able to get another one.
I pray that you and your loved ones are safe and secure under the wings of the Almighty. Have a wonderful weekend.

So good to see you back active on SP. Sorry about your laptop.
I had actually come to SA in November for a conference - only knew about it 1 week before, so not much time to plan. Would have loved to see you, but there wasn't much time anyway.
We will have another conference in September, somehow around the 22nd (exact date not yet put) and this time I want to see a bit of the country as well.
The conference will either be in Joh'burg or in Capetown, but I definitely want to see both places. Maybe I can convince BF to come along and send him play golf during the conference.
Wishing you the best, enjoy your weekend
