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: 57,761

Fitness Minutes: 69,351

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.

Here we are in 2016. whether you have been on this journey for years or for months, you know it is hard. Natalie Grant recorded a song a few years ago that gives me the strength to keep going when I am struggling. I hope it will minister to you also.

ou are here in my heart
You're the light that guides me through the dark
You walk beside me, the night seems cold each time I fall
Your arms are there to hold

You walk beside me, giving strength I've never known
And I am not alone
You walk beside me
(I am not alone)

You are here in my mind
I talk to you and all my fears unwind
I know I'm loved, for who I am, you make me want to be the best that I can
And you walk beside me, giving strength I've never known

And I am not alone
You walk beside me
Oh, I am not alone
Wherever the road leads

And I rely on your patience
When I face the unknown
And because of you, I am, I am not alone, ooh
I am not alone
(I am not alone)

You're always beside me, yeah, I am not alone
Oh yeah, yeah in the sun, in the rain
(I am not alone)
Through the good times and in the pain
You're always beside me I reach out for your hand
(I am not alone)
I know that you understand, oh yeah, yeah
(I am not alone)

In the sun, in the rain
Through the good times and in the pain
You're always beside me I reach out for your hand
(I am not alone)
I know that you understand, oh

Raffie thank you so much for your comment on my 'Christmas day plus 1' blog, I have since used your quote about the days between NYE and Christmas mattering more.
Would you tell me how to make the half syn cake, that sounds very good to me, as even with how syn cake and freeze it I can eat it frozen when I want to.

thanks for your support, btw haven't read you latest blog fully so haven't commented on it yet.

Sending you love, hugs and better weather so you can get out on your bike this week. emoticon emoticon emoticon Donna x

Raffie-I have decided that you are a GENIUS! Weight loss by prayer? I asked His taking my weight loss into His control, took it back again(of course) and yet never thought to let a prayer of interruption take the reigns! Thank you, my Sister for such a brilliant and God given idea! Have a blessed and peace filled day!

Hi Raffie, we got the Wii about 6-7 years ago & haven't played with it for about 5 years according to the weight information. At least we are both over 5 stones lighter than at that time. Thank goodness.
