I am a 56 year old woman of British origin living in Germany. I have three beautiful daughters, 2 sweet little granddaughters and a dear baby grandson. Before finding SparkPeople, I had been podgy and unfit for at least 7 years and was fed up (to the gills) of that - it was time to move! I tend to eat any cake that lands in front of me, so I am practicing choosing good quality or just having a small sample. 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! April 15: made it to my 2nd maintenance anniversary and feel good ! Dez 15: Having a tough time after my mother died in October. General overeating and lack of purpose. Weight gain of 6 pounds which I dispise. This is going to stop - NOW! Feb 2016: I am moving faster again now, 2 pounds down and feeling a lot calmer! I know this is doable..... April 2016: lost 4lbs of the winter regain, so will start working on getting back down to 59kg, my maintainable happy weight. August 16 - I am still hovering on the wrong side of 60kg, but making progress as in 2 steps forward, 1 step back! January 2017: the flu knocked my appetite on the head, so I am happy to be below 59kg for a change!

My Goals:
I started off wanting to look better in clothes, to feel more confident at work and just to move at a faster pace and to have more general energy.
Now after more than 3 years on SparkPeople I feel at home here and love having lovely people to cheer on and be encouraged by too!


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

    Hey oh so wise one, letting go indeed! It surely lessens the load when we lighten our hearts. Funny how I have gobs of patience with some stuff, annnnnnd others?! Not so much. No words, just know that your spark and friendship help more than you could ever imagine.

    Thinking good thoughts and sending up prayers and blessings for you and yours. Thank you for being one in a melon!
