On my way down....

Well, I watched "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" and it motivated me so much that I immediately went out and bought a juicer !!
After a 5 day juice fast I lost 10 lbs ( yes, really !! ) and am now at 140 for the first time in a long time. I feel empowered to do more for myself and respect my body instead of constantly abusing it, then looking in the mirror and wondering why on earth I look like a roly-poly pudding !
Finally, something clicked for me ( it only took 50 years to find it ! ...

Finally, something clicked for me ( it only took 50 years to find it ! ), and I have a tool that I know works for me.
I know this time that my goal IS reachable and by golly I`m gonna reach it !!

My Goals:
Well I want to get to my goal weight of 112 lbs, which is what I was when I got married and have never seen since !!

To incorporate exercise into my daily routine and find ways to make it fun instead of a chore.

To look good in clothes instead of feeling frumpy, and to hopefully gain in confidence what I`m losing in excess pounds. !

I don`t want to be shy and embarrased anymore..I`ve had too many years of hiding in corners..now its time to shine...

My Program:
I`m going to use the community pool, buy a bike (hubby`s getting one too !),
do SOMETHING every day to increase my activity.

Join Sparkteams that will help and support me as I support them.

Share my journey with family and friends.

Reward my efforts with treats - manicure, pedicure, pretty underwear.

The biggest thing for me is to look at this differently..I am not on a diet, I`m changing my whole lifestyle..this is permanent, diets are temporary

Personal Information:
My name is Michelle, although everyone calls me Shell
(& my family call me Shellie).
I`m originally from Manchester, England but now live in Florida. We`ve been in the USA for 12 years and I miss my family terribly at times, which in the past has caused me to comfort eat. happily I recognise this, so it is something I can deal with.
I have a wonderfully supportive hubby who is helping me - which is great coz he does all the cooking !!

I`m a night nurse, a job I adore most of the time.

I`m lucky to be surrounded by fabulous friends, all of whom are very encouraging.

Other Information:
I love, love, LOVE music...all kinds of music, from classical to rock.
"I got the Music in me"
Kiki Dee.

I enjoy reading and could read Harry Potter & Lord of the Rings over and over !!

I'd really appreciate the recipes. I am tired of yucky juice. Mine needs to be mostly veggie tho, not fruit.
