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!

Fitness Minutes: 54,628

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!

You always leave me the most kind and supportive comments and I so appreciate it! I think before I felt like I needed to get back on track (which was true) but now I feel that I am ready to get back on track and more importantly I WANT to. I don't like where this weight gain was headed so I am going to turn it around.

Thanks for your comments, and continued support. x x So glad you are healing well, although bound to be a bit achy after all that surgery. Hope you have a good weekend, and get organised at work...I swear to goodness that I could rule the world, if only I could get organised! New Day's Resolution...Get Organised. I'm still trying to do at least one mini-project a day, although this week has been chaos! Perhaps I ought to start CA...Chaotics Anonymous! xx

I'm heading to the gym right this minute and in your honor I'm going to do 20 minutes on the treadmill before my Pilates class. I definitely need it! Too many moments of

"Progress. Just make progress. It's okay to have setbacks and the need for do-overs. It's okay to draw a line in the sand and start over again --- and again. Just make sure you're moving the line forward. Move forward. Take baby steps, but at least take steps that keep you from being stuck. Then change will come.
And it will be good."
