Rainbowchoc,

I have lost weight. I have said no to things, I have walked my dog at least twice a day. I haven't been perfect but I haven't beaten myself up for detours from the path.
From a place where I wore "unisex" coats in 3XL and wouldn't go to a pool I have a pink mac and have gone through four sizes of "cozzie" at my aquafit class.
From a BP reading (pre treatment) of 225/125 to 106/68 and from a fasting glucose which indicated type 2 diabetes to HbA1c of 5.
Something is going ...

Something is going right, and I'm happy with that!

SparkPoints: 65,531

Fitness Minutes: 89,749

My Goals:
To achieve a "healthy BMI"
To wear knee high leather boots in winter
To go to the doctors without being told the problems are weight related
To encourage other people without making them feel inadequate

My Program:
Based loosely on the 80s WW programme, protein with every meal, limited fats and carbs, unlimited veg and fruit. I don't eat dairy or nuts so will never be a vegetarian but have meat free days following overindulgence.
Drinking 2 litres of water a day has been an education

Personal Information:
Married to himself for 37 years. We have retired to Kent, UK and our son lives in America. We are always on the go, travel and visiting friends/family
.

Other Information:
A year of Sparking has created a self confidence I had hidden with bravado and fat for many years. I have learned it isn't too late to change and be renewed.

Hi Sandra, thanks for coming by and leaving awesome supportive messages for me! Pilates are non-existent here, but we do have pump and circuits. Unfortunately, my shoulder and neck are not getting any better, I have twice weekly massages that help me out, I'm trying to lose as much weight as I can on my bike and other bits and pieces that help the process before I can start seriously on the strength training. The good new is, I'm starting on Monday, and this weekend I'm going to sort out my program.
