My Goals:
In 2007 I decided to lose weight, get fit, stop eating junk and regain control of my life.
...and so, for the first time in many years, I applied myself 100%. I had my moments of self doubt, I allowed myself to be bought down by negative comments but gradually I grew a thicker skin. I lost the weight, I got fitter, the junk food has gone and my life is gradually getting back on track. There's so many things I still want to achieve; they seem completely out of my reach but so did losing weight. I never thought I'd be exercising like a woman possessed but I am. I never thought I'd stop eating chocolate for lunch but I did so now I'm aiming high. I might fall on my face, I might get laughed at but one thing I will never do is look back on my life and think - I wish I tried - What if? - If only...

My Program:
I pay attention to what I eat. I do a lot of home cooking and this year grew a lot of my own vegetables.
I set myself a target of between 120-140mins of fitness a day - more if can.
I track everything to keep myself accountable.

Other Information:
I'm studying for a diploma in genealogy, love spending time in the garden, reading a good book, watch a film - I love horror, fantasy, supernatural... research my family tree, I have a fascination of Jack the Ripper, love cross-stitch, cooking, knitting, writing...I enjoy meeting friends for coffee or lunch and catching up with their lives, sharing wishes and hopes...

The most effective way to fight food cravings is: go for a walk. Taking a brisk, 15-minute walk can curb even the strongest cravings, according to the journal Appetite. That’s because walking can distract the mind. It also reduces stress and boredom – which are two big triggers for cravings.
