Shedding Pounds - Not Tears!

Started my Spark Journey on January 10th 2009 because I was fed up and felt very much it was time to do or die. And as I wasn't quite prepared to throw in the towel and die, there really was only one option left and that was DO!

SparkPeople was recommended to me by a friend and has been an utter godsend. Thank you.

Over 2 years of changing me, and just over 120lbs down. Funny how what was once a journey focused on weight loss has now become a much, much more holistic ...

I am not "changed" - but my focus is!

The weight loss journey have uncovered more than just collar bones and hip bones, that's for sure. ;)

All the best to every one of you, no matter how far you are into your own journey. You CAN.

Fitness Minutes: 21,166

My Goals:
August 2010 I finally reached a normal BMI. I still weigh and track all my meals and snacks and although I'd like to drop another few lbs, my main goal now is to live a long and healthy life and never-ever gain the weight I lost. Any of it. :)

My Program:
I weigh and track all the food and drink I consume and have stayed completely on track with this - never felt tempted to go off course, but also have not make any food "illegal" - I eat all I did before but in moderation and with a firm eye on my budget!

Personal Information:
I teach Danish & English at a Red Cross Refugee Camp in Denmark.

I have a daughter from April '06 and a son from December '07. Thriving and contented children, whom I obviously love to the end of the world.

I'm very happily married to the most loving and supportive man I have ever met.

Well, it's pretty obvious that I haven't heard of it now, isn't it? LOL To be honest, once I got my thyroid antibodies down to zero by adjusting my diet to about 90% primal/paleo, my thyroid became manageable and my focus shifted to improving my fitness and health in general - the thyroid kind of took a back seat. All the best. emoticon

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.

Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're Doing Something.

So that's my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody's ever made before. Don't freeze, don't stop, don't worry that it isn't good enough, or it isn't perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.

Whatever it is you're scared of doing, Do it.

Make your mistakes, next year and forever.
Neil Gaiman

Hugs, Keri
