Millie-Milou on board for the long haul.

I am called Raffie and I've been a member since the end of May 09 now and have come on here most days to blog, log food or exercise and chat on the community forums. Its all very motivating. I live in Norfolk, UK, with my Husband and 4 dogs. I am in love with my new job as a PA in a Guitar Academy. Great fun and I literally get to play!

I have been married to KENJAK for years, we get along nicely. I gave him a kidney back in 08 but it has since packed in.

I have been married to KENJAK for years, we get along nicely. I gave him a kidney back in 08 but it has since packed in.

We have just moved into a 2 bedroomed, ground floor flat with a huge garden, so lots of gardening to do. Closer to the City than before, only a quick 3 mile cycle ride each way. Closer to the hospital too, for Kenjack's dialysis.

I have a small cycling addiction and have 2 bikes, my fabulous Planet X Carbon road bike, which weighs a mere 7.75kg. I have my Winter bike, also a Planet X but a Cyclocross bike, so a bit tougher than the roadie and I can go off or on road on him. He weighs in a a whopping 8.2kg :-D There are barely any hills in Norfolk but the off road riding is fun and flat-ish.
Having shifted 33lbs or so, using Exante - a very low calorie diet of bars, shakes and food packs, I've now joined Slimming World as the VLCD thing was not sustainable for me, with all the exercise I do. With SW I need to shift another 7-10lbs and then maintain. That's the plan, at least. This stuffing your face to lose weigh plan is a tad weird but I am assured, by other Sparkies, that it works. Fine by me.
So that's me then. I'd love to chat to other Sparkies if you have the time. Anyone who'd like to friend me is more than welcome to.

SparkPoints: 47,710

Fitness Minutes: 57,563

My Goals:
To see 11 stone something on the scales. Every 7lb I lose, I shall buy myself a new CD.

10 stone something - new wardrobe
Anything less is a bonus and we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Ultimately I'd like to be 147lbs so working down to it.

My Program:
My programme mostly consists of riding my bike and walking for the aerobic side of things. Bodyweight exercises in my home office.
I can't afford a gym so home exercising works well for me. My iPod is very helpful for working out with.

Personal Information:
I live in Norwich, UK. I am a Scot by birth but live in England as the Highlands are too cold for me.

Other Information:
I am a guitarist with a deep love of Eric Johnson. I love my dogs, cycling and walking. I like to curl up with a good movie on a rainy day, a good book is even better.

So sorry I presumed that you had carpal tunnel syndrome. An injury such as you had must have been devastating, glad to hear you can still play the guitar!

Someday maybe I too will invest in a Garmin. My Sigma is doing the job for me right now, although it and MapmyRide don't always exactly match on mileage, but not too far off. DBF has a Garmin watch because he runs too.

Sometimes the way clothes fit is just as important as any actual weight loss. You ride and walk a lot so probably you have more muscle than some people.

Have fun at the gym day!

Thank you for reading and commenting on my blog about the “jerk.” I have since learned that the woman finally divorced him. Good for her! Whenever we encounter people like that, we have to be braver and stronger.

Edit: After I read your page I googled Norfolk,UK since we live near Norfolk, Virginia in the USA and I never knew where the city that inspired our name was located. We've only been to the London area, never to the east coast. I like to learn about new places.

I have been thinking about Father's Day this weekend. I lost my Dad in 1980. I do not think I will ever get over missing him.
But We also have an ever-present Heavenly Father. This song reminds me again and again of how much He loves each of us and how vast His love is. It was sung by a group called Sierra.

YOUR LOVE
Your love is an ocean
Too vast to comprehend
Your love is a mystery
One I'll never understand
You see what I can't see
As You watch me from above

Everything I'll ever need
Everything I long to be
The very air I breathe
Is found in Your love
Deeper than the deepest sea
Your living water runs in me
My very heartbeat
Is found in Your love

Your love is the rising sun
That burns from dusk to dawn
Your love is the silver moon
In darkness Your light is drawn
You hold eternity
And at the same time You hold me

I am consumed to think that You
In all Your Majesty
Would be consumed with me
