I am a 55 year old woman of British origin living in Germany. I have three beautiful daughters and 2 sweet little granddaughters, another little being is due to arrive in Sep 2016. 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 ! 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!

    Baby watch is on...sooooooo excited! I love that you know exactly how I feel!!! Many thanks for my bicycle, I can think of nothing nicer than going on a ride with you. A summer of hungry I can certainly relate to, may fall be a hole lot kinder in that regard. Green tea and veggies help...yet I stink at handling the hungries! Take care, my friend!

    Just stopping by to let you know how much I appreciate your sincere, helpful, and supportive comments. Over time we have donated, tossed, recycled, and reinvented many of our belongings. We are committed to continuing in that vain...yet I think the virus I had and the fact we just did much of this six months ago when the interior was painted, has zapped much of my enthusiasm and drive to stay on this. The hubs left today for work, I told him no one would fault him if he didn't come home for a week! Ha! Hope he knows I was kidding! Take care, my friend!

    You like hiking too?! Love to hike, it removes the disadvantages I have strolling with the hubs. His longer legs keep me scrambling to keep up when we walk together...sigh! I appreciate nature's bounty...just am clueless about capturing it in pics, as you so beautifully do! Take care, my friend!
