Wendy, you are worth it! Nana - itīs time to move!

I am a 53 year old woman of British origin living in Germany. I have three beautiful daughters and 1 sweet granddaughter. Before finding SparkPeople, I had been podgy and unfit for at least 7 years and was fed up (to the gills) of that - itīs time to move! I am reading a lot about self-sabotage and mindless eating - I want to eat fattening things when I am bored, upset and funnily enough when I am chatting away on the phone....

I am 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighed in at 67 kilos ...

I am reading a lot about self-sabotage and mindless eating - I want to eat fattening things when I am bored, upset and funnily enough when I am chatting away on the phone....

I am 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighed in at 67 kilos in August 2012 - I reached my goal weight of 58 kilos in April 2013.

June 2013: getting to grips with maintenance mode and very relieved that I am managing to incorporate exercise (mainly walking and elliptical) on a regular basis to my new active lifestyle- I really feel out of sorts now if I have a lazy day!!

March 14: drinking my greens for a change - hope the scales like them too!! At the moment I am working on getting below 58 kg again, 59.4 kg at the moment, so it can be done!

Sept 14: my weight is hovering in the 59 kg range, but I am fine with that as long as I keep moving and eating wholesome food!

My Goals:
I want to look better in clothes, feel more confident at work and just to move at a faster pace than up til now and have more general energy.
Update 8th April 2013: I have lost 9 kilos and definately look more streamlined in my clothes. I move a lot faster than I used to and enjoy running up stairs, jogging through the park or whizzing around on my bike now. My bosses and co-workers have noticed that I question decisions more often and make suggestions on how to re-assess certain work processes - all in all, I have come a long way in the last 8 months!

My Program:
tracking my nutrition and fitness and jogging/walking as well as a dumbbell-workout and general gymnastics/dancing in the sitting room.

Other Information:
March 2013: I have lost about 90% of the weight I want to get rid of - feeling postive that I will make it this time around - I am fed up of giving up!!
Update April 2013: I am within 100 grams of my goal weight of 58kg and am amazed at all the changes I have been able to make in the last 8 months thanks to SparkPeople and all itīs brave Sparkies!
Update 18.4.13: I weighed in at 57.7kg, surpassing my goal - WooHoo!
I write different types of lyrics and poems, sing in a female choir and enjoy travelling to different countries as well as reading quite a lot. I also love gardening!

Thank you for reading my blogs!

And emoticon to your successful audit, it must be a relief for you.
Cats are really fun, I personally didn't want one and my family pushed me into adopting him last summer, but I'm glad we did.
Always funny, even when he is sleeping, and most of the time he radiates peace and satisfaction with how things are. : )) Good reminder for a busy person!

"Work often seems to produce more work and this can turn into a vicious circle." is too true!
I still remember, more than 10 years ago the laptop of our regional manager crashed and he lost 400+ emails... he said nobody ever came back to him to ask why he didn't respond! ; )
Of course there might have been some crucially important ones in there, but obviously not everything is as important as it seems.
I remember this story when I feel too stressed about pressure : )

“Nobody ever talks about the pyramids that weren't built, the books that weren't written, the songs that weren't sung.
Stop letting your fear condemn you to mediocrity. Get out of your own way.
Your dreams are a poetic reflection of your soul's wishes. Be courageous enough to follow them.
There is no greater time than now to experience the full power of your potential.
Make this the day you take the first step in the beautiful journey of bringing your dreams to life.”
-Steve Maraboli

Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog!

I'm glad you found the "eat sitting down" thing useful, I like it because it is simple but eliminates many possible bad eating behaviors : )
