After a wonderfully successful first half of 2011 where I lost 57 lbs with Sparkpeople, I faced some difficulties - work and financial related - that threw me back. Now, several pounds heavier and still very-very stressed, I have decided to take control of my life once more and this time go the full distance. I did it once, I can do it again and I am wiser for my past experience.
I am 38, mother of a gorgeous two year old and morbidly obese. I do not like that term but it brings home the reality of my situation. My shape and weight have ruled my life for far too long and I am determined to change this in 2011. I am on my way to a helathier, better looking, new Me. So watch this space!

My Goals:

Personal Information:
I live in the UK

Other Information:
I am a great Harry Potter fan, loved the books especially.

I like going to the cinema and enjoy a diverse selection of films from animation to serious drama, period pieces, action thrillers, rom coms... escapism is the word!

I am a bit like Hermione in the HP books in that I love reading books and really think I have found a lot of answers in them. Currently I am reading (auto)biograhies of successful business people to try and get into the mentality of an enterpreneur (yes, I know, hopeless case!).

I have an interest in behavioural psychology, coaching, NLP and similar.

I am very logical and analytical, too agreeable for my own good and usually indecisive which has cost me!

I hope one day to add things like cycling, rowing, ice skating, skiing and running on my list of hobbies but I am not there yet!

    Q: Why can't you borrow money from a leprechaun?
    A: Because they're always a little short.

    Choose your goal and keep your eye on it. Never give up.
    Perhaps you will need to change your plan
    and approach you goal from a different direction, but don't quit.
    Keep thinking. Keep re-planning. Keep going.

    Hark how the bells,
    sweet silver bells,
    all seem to say,
    throw cares away

    Christmas is here,
    bringing good cheer,
    to young and old,
    meek and the bold.

    Gaily they ring
    while people sing
    songs of good cheer,
    Christmas is here.

    Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas,
    Merry, Merry, Merry, Merry Christmas. emoticon
