♫♫ This is it - this time I know it's for real ♫♫

In January I found out I had gallstones with a side order of pancreatitis. I have had to make some major changes in my life but it's a wonderful thing, because those changes are long overdue.

I've been tracking on SP again for a couple of weeks and exercising regularly and I feel great.

If I feel this good after a couple of weeks, I can't wait to find out how good I'll feel after a couple of months not to mention a couple of years!

My Goals:
As at April 2013, I have 70lbs I'd like to lose.

I aim to lose my weight slowly so that it sticks so I'm hoping to be at goal by 1 April 2014 (01.04.14).

I'm 48 years old and I am determined to get really fit and healthy. The big 5-0 is coming up and I aim to be in the best shape of my life and this time I know I'm going to make it!

My Program:
As well as radically changing my nutrition I'm really focussing on exercise this time around. These are the resources I'm using to build a new foundation for health:

♥ Body Control Pilates by Lynne Robinson (UK Pilates guru) this is re-educating my body and bringing me slowly back in to correct physical alignment I love her approach
♥ Barbara Benagh Yoga DVDs she is another pure genius and her instructions make yoga so clear and safe to practice love her
♥ Core Secrets by Gunnar Petersen an infomercial purchase I will never regret
♥ C25K on my cross-trainer instead of on-the-road so I can build up my cardio-capacity without injuring my body (or 'doing myself a mischief' as we say over here in the UK)

Personal Information:
My name is Maria and I'm from London, UK. I'm of Scots/Irish-descent and I was born in England so I'm a bit of an in-betweenie culturally which is great, I think.

Other Information:
I'm eating vegetarian (and even vegan) a lot of the time these days and I'm really enjoying it. I'm not sure if I'll go for it 100% in the future, but I'm enjoying the variety of plant based foods.

I have already lost 35lbs with Weight Watchers but I find the SP approach more holistic so I made the switch.

I love the fact that SP has membership without borders. It's really interesting to get the different perspectives of people from around the globe.
