I first found Spark People in late November 2009 and it helped me tackle some great goals in early 2010. The last part of that year turned out to be pretty challenging on a whole lot of fronts - living in a different city form my partner, earthquakes and custody battles.

In 2011 I got back on track to get back to being slim and fit! Started the year with some post 2010 and Christmas extra kilos but managed to melt them away, with support from Spark people.

Not such happy journey since then - 2012/13 was very challenging, work changes, my partner was diagnosed with cancer and subsequently died quite suddenly.

Now my journey begins anew - I have a new home and a new job and am getting back on track! Bring on 2014 I say !

2014 Goals

Get down to around 72 kg by my birthday in November.

Take my lunch to work 95% of the time to stop wasting money on food that isn't good for me.

Be fit enough to ski again this year if the opportunity arises.

Get through the winter with only one cold and no flu, through being healthier and more resilient.

My Program:
I exercise everyday - either by walking or by getting to the gym.

Taking my lunch to work helps enormously as I know exactly what goes into it and how much I am eating.

The hardest part for me used to be balancing my fuel for the day with the amount of activity - so I didn't run out of energy by 3pm, especially when I was working long hours.

The Spark Peopl site helps me spread my fuel throughout the day in the right amounts to keep me going and also build in the flexibility to do the things I love - like go to wine tastings, without taking a big step backwards on my plan.

Personal Information:
Hi, I'm Natalie and I live in Wellington, New Zealand.

I discovered this wonderful site completely by accident, but just at the right time.

Clearly the universe is supporting what I am trying to do!!

Other Information:
While I work in a desk bound job and spend a large part of my day looking at my computer screen, I love to get out in the fresh air and walk and make the most of my beautiful cities.
It is a bonus that I live in lovely Lower Hutt and work in wonderful Wellington, so the views for my walks are fantastic and vary often.
