Millie-Milou on board for the long haul.

I am called Raffie and I've been a member since the end of May 09 now and have come on here most days to blog, log food or exercise and chat on the community forums. Its all very motivating. I live in Norfolk, UK, with my Husband and 4 dogs. I am in love with my new job as a PA in a Guitar Academy. Great fun and I literally get to play!

I have been married to KENJAK for years, we get along nicely. I gave him a kidney back in 08 but it has since packed in.

I have been married to KENJAK for years, we get along nicely. I gave him a kidney back in 08 but it has since packed in.

We have just moved into a 2 bedroomed, ground floor flat with a huge garden, so lots of gardening to do. Closer to the City than before, only a quick 3 mile cycle ride each way. Closer to the hospital too, for Kenjack's dialysis.

I have a small cycling addiction and have 2 bikes, my fabulous Planet X Carbon road bike, which weighs a mere 7.75kg. I have my Winter bike, also a Planet X but a Cyclocross bike, so a bit tougher than the roadie and I can go off or on road on him. He weighs in a a whopping 8.2kg :-D There are barely any hills in Norfolk but the off road riding is fun and flat-ish.
Having shifted 33lbs or so, using Exante - a very low calorie diet of bars, shakes and food packs, I've now joined Slimming World as the VLCD thing was not sustainable for me, with all the exercise I do. With SW I need to shift another 7-10lbs and then maintain. That's the plan, at least. This stuffing your face to lose weigh plan is a tad weird but I am assured, by other Sparkies, that it works. Fine by me.
So that's me then. I'd love to chat to other Sparkies if you have the time. Anyone who'd like to friend me is more than welcome to.

SparkPoints: 49,556

Fitness Minutes: 59,436

My Goals:
To see 11 stone something on the scales. Every 7lb I lose, I shall buy myself a new CD.

10 stone something - new wardrobe
Anything less is a bonus and we'll cross that bridge when we come to it.

Ultimately I'd like to be 147lbs so working down to it.

My Program:
My programme mostly consists of riding my bike and walking for the aerobic side of things. Bodyweight exercises in my home office.
I can't afford a gym so home exercising works well for me. My iPod is very helpful for working out with.

Personal Information:
I live in Norwich, UK. I am a Scot by birth but live in England as the Highlands are too cold for me.

Other Information:
I am a guitarist with a deep love of Eric Johnson. I love my dogs, cycling and walking. I like to curl up with a good movie on a rainy day, a good book is even better.

I agree with you in part about CV lengths. I spent a couple of decades in management and did plenty of hiring folks for professional positions We tolerated tolerated maybe 6-8 pages. Hard to get all the info into just two. As for 25, he won't shorten it.

Thank you for your very kind comments! Maybe they are twins.....except mine uses a PVR and TV.

My study (or office) has my guitars in it as well. I'm there now with Renaissance vibes.

SOmetimes I feel so discouraged on this weight loss journey. I work so hard and get nowhere. It is those times I have to remember that through Christ I can do all things. this song, written by Geron Davis, says it so well.

Every road I walked had led to nowhere,
Everything I tried had turned out wrong.
It seemed I'd lost a reason,
To get up every morning.
I had lot all hope and lost my song.
Circumstances said I wouldn't make it,
But that was all before I met The Man.
He put His arms around me,
I heard HIm say, "forgiven",
And I knew I'd never be the same again.

Chrous
Then and there, settled and done
Then and there, victory won
No more walking on my own,
No more facing life alone,
No more struggling with guilt and despair,
New life began, then and there.

Now my heart is getting restless,
Longing for the day he'll come.
When we've fought the final fight,
And our faith has been made sight,
And we'll stand before the throne and hear Him say
Well done, He'll say well done.

Then and there, settled and done
Then and there, victory won
No more pain and no more fears
No more death and no more tears
No more walking through the night
For the Lamb will be the light
No more sin and no more burdens to bear
New life began, then and there

So sorry I presumed that you had carpal tunnel syndrome. An injury such as you had must have been devastating, glad to hear you can still play the guitar!
