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

I am a 54 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 - it was 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 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 goood!

SparkPoints: 67,407

Fitness Minutes: 64,846

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 it�s 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!

Hi Wendy. Thanks for checking in. All fine, been busy decorating, ready for the stairs to go in tomorrow (please Lord, I'm terrified of going up and down the ladder!). Hope all is well with you. Looking forward to getting back to blogging soon xxhugs

Your superfood + evening walk strategy sounds great!
It shows that you are nourishing yourself, rather than adding restrictions on top of all the stress.
I'm glad you were able to calm your mind and you sleep better!
I'm trying to do something similar in difficult times.

Hi Wendy. To be honest, I'm not doing the best... just trying to get through one day at a time. Thanks for checking in with me though.

I did the conversion on myself. I weigh about 71 kilos. Unreal!
