I'm back... this time I'm serious!

Since I've been gone I've gained back some of my weight but I did complete a FULL marathon! It almost broke me but now I'm starting slowly again, starting to walk regularly and doing lots of swimming.

I am being more realistic with my goals and I am hoping to get to my long term goal by my birthday in February next year.

I'm starting simple, just one or two challenges at a time. I got overwhelmed before and ended up leaving Spark People. I'm recently back on board as ...

I'm starting simple, just one or two challenges at a time. I got overwhelmed before and ended up leaving Spark People. I'm recently back on board as I found the app is now free again and it's better than ever! Thank you Spark People!

I'm also in a Weight Watchers at Work program which up to now has been an opportunity wasted. I am refocused and am being more sensible with my goals.

A quick history:

I'm English but now live in Canada.

I have two gorgeous daughters, have moved with my family into a renovation project and I have a part time job. I don't seem to have time to do anything these days!

I have body issues: I am missing out as I don't like my photo being taken and I am not in more than a couple of pictures of my children. I hate to see myself in photos. The one of me with "Elvis" was taken a few years ago and I like it because there's no double-chin!

I found out in April 2012 that I'm pre-diabetic and have high cholesterol. At the start of the year I initiated a huge change, moving to a mostly vegan diet and for the most part, it's going well. I do slip up once in a while but that is getting less and less frequent. I definitely feel better but am hoping to really start to feel better and lose this weigh before the end of the year! Woo hoo!!!

Hey there! Just dropping in to let you know that I changed my username from "glamrizdiva" to "comfyglamdiva", it suits me more. You know I'm all about glam and being comfy and the two just fit when it comes to me. If you have been following my daily blogs you will have to re-subscribe to them because you don't want to miss out. So, if you see the new name and you were not sure who it was, it's just me with a new name.

Have a great day!
