What I wrote when I joined back on January 1st 2010

I need to lose weight for my health, I can't move as well as I should and at 50 need to keep an eye on that. I've put on a stone in the last 3 months so have decided I need to get back to 15 stones instead of the 17 and a half that I am now!

UPDATE now under 16 stones for the first time in more than 5 years and feeling amazing. Working on couch to 5k and have signed up for my first 5k run on 20th June 2010

And still going downwards...

UPDATE 2 Now under 14stones (194lb as of today) I managed to keep going and lose a little more weight even though I fell and fractured my kneecap whilst out running on May 3rd. This means that I've missed both of my 5ks but I will do one later in the year if it kills me.

I'm now the same weight I was in my 20s and possibly may get to the 12st something mark before Christmas. I was last 12st after I had bowel cancer 10 years ago and it's the only time I've ever been under 13st in my adult life. This time I'm going to do it the nicer way. *grin*

UPDATE Jan 2011. Still recovering from my knee injury and still not able to run very much. Have had a very difficult time with family crises with far reaching effects. Have hit the food as a comfort button quite badly in the run up to Xmas. I have promised myself that I am going to get back to 200 and then down to 182 by my birthday in June. Working on the keeping things under control rather than making huge changes.

Goal One

To be 15 st again (210 lbs) ACHIEVED 29 March 2010

OK so I'm having to move the goalposts a little...

Goal Two
Make that 14 st (196lb) - not been there for over 10 years so that is a big goal for me - I can and will do it though.
ACHIEVED and then lost again bounced back up to 15st but on the way back down - going to be back there by my birthday in June.

New Goal 13st (182lb)

Gonna do the race for life again this year, in memory of my good friend Maralyn who died last Easter. This time I want to jog the 5k rather than walk it. Might manage to do this at the Hyde park run in August.
