I have been trying to lose weight for as long as I can remember and it just keeps creeping up. I have just been taken off HRT because my sister has been diagnosed with breast cancer and I think it's time I made a radical change in my lifestyle. I think this is a wake up call I need to answer!

OK SO I DIDN'T DO IT! I NEED TO START ALL OVER AGAIN, I WENT TO WEIGHT WATCHERS AND THAT DIDN'T WORK SO I'M BACK AND HOPING TO GET ON TRACK AND LOSE WEIGHT. I PLAN ON TAKING IT SLOWLY TO START WITH.


I found this idea on MORRISDATTER's page, I thought it was a good way to motivate myself and show milestones.
Not that I have reached any yet!!! BUT I WILL.

10% accomplishments:
started at 212 pounds
10 percent loss=21 pounds-191 ACHIEVED !!! 14/6/2008 and then I UNACHIEVED it !!!!! But I WILL do it again!
10 percent of 191=19 pounds - 172 achieved..........
10 percent of 172=17 pounds - 155 achieved...........
10 percent of 155=15 pounds - 140, not sure if I want to lose this much but you never know how I might feel when I reach this target weight!!


Member Since: 1/18/2008

Fitness Minutes: 16,146

My Goals:
I want to be slimmer and healthier. I want to have the energy to chase my grandson, run and play football with him and go for long walks like I used to be able to do.


My Program:
Logging the food I eat. Back to basics, count calories and do more exercise. I have started to be aware of times I can fit walking into my work day as well as going for walks in my spare time. I started on short walks and now am aiming at walking for 1500 minutes in March 2008, and I'm well on the way to meeting that goal.



Personal Information:
I live in Derby in central England. We are close to beautiful countryside with lots of walks and country houses with lovely gardens and grounds to walk in.
I teach childcare to mainly asian women in a women's only training centre. I love my job and seem to learn as much from my students as they do from me. Before that I spent 20 years working with children in different settings but mainly as a childminder while my own 2 boys were small.


Other Information:
I enjoy reading mystery novels and family history which is like my own mystery story. It is so rewarding to find out new information about my ancestors.
