Turning 50 was an unexpectedly happy and enlightening time, as I decided to take back control of my life. I didn't plan it in advance, it just suddenly felt like the right moment. I've changed many things already and my confidence is growing, but my body shape remains resolutely stuck and this seems to be the major factor in reducing/obliterating my self-confidence. Joining SparkPeople is my determined effort to get rid of that belly flab once and for all, and get fit whilst doing it. I'm a very private person, so publishing here is also a major step for me.

Personal Information:


Other Information:
My favourite novel of all time is "A Fine Balance" by Rohinton Minstry. Inspiring, yet tragic. By the last page I didn't know whether to laugh or cry - I did both. A quote from the book: "You see, you cannot draw lines and compartments, and refuse to budge beyond them. Sometimes you have to use your failures as stepping-stones to success. You have to maintain a fine balance between hope and despair."

    Hello and Welcome to SparkPeople!

    I started Sparking in June of 2007. By using Spark and some self discovery along the way, I'm down 50 pounds, and am holding steady at a healthy weight. Spark is a massive site, you'll be discovering new and exciting things for months to come!
