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: 52,188

Fitness Minutes: 61,870

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.

Hey Raffie,
Hope all is ok with you as I've not seen anything from you for a couple of days.

Yes Raffie, the guy did stop as it happened outside where he worked. He'd finished his night shift & was on his way home when he ran into Pete. We think he actually jumped a red traffic light. The Police came & he admitted to them that it was entirely his fault so all should be well with the insurance.

I agree with you in part about CV lengths. I spent a couple of decades in management and did plenty of hiring folks for professional positions We tolerated tolerated maybe 6-8 pages. Hard to get all the info into just two. As for 25, he won't shorten it.
