I joined Sparkpeople in about June 2012. I had got my weight down and staying down from 76 kilo to 65 (sometimes to 60), but was not succeeding in reaching my goal, which is 60 and under. Given my eating habits when I travel and can't control what food is put before me, and don't control the portions I eat, I need to have a normal weight of 57, to keep at 60 and under. (DONE March 2013!)

(DONE March 2013!)
I am learning to enjoy Sparkpeople's encouragement about exercise, and much appreciate their information about nutrition, fitness etc.
I live in Albania, which is challenging, both for finding healthy food, particularly low fat, and for exercising (savage dogs roam loose or get out. I got badly bitten by the neighbour's Alsatian and the doctor didn't have enough sutures to give me more than 3 stitches). Also snow and ice, or thick mud afterwards are not conducive to walking - I strained my knee last winter...
This winter has been mild and I can easily get out with the dogs most days.

“TAKE ACTION! Wanting is not enough; Act upon your goals!
If somebody was watching your day-to-day behavior, would they be able to see what you’re working towards; what your goals are?
If the answer is no, FIX IT!”

Thanks so much for your comments on my blog about moderation. I also still struggle with weight gain when I travel--I find that I get overwhelmed by having so many things that are out of my control. I'd love it if you could share some strategies that work for you when you travel. This is my final frontier!

Spring has sprung, the grass has ris’,
I wonder where the birdie is?
There he is up in the sky,
He dropped some whitewash in my eye!
I‘m alright, I won't cry,
I'm just glad that cows can't fly!

If it is your desire to see it come about, it is your responsibility to make the necessary effort."
