****************************************
My ultimate mission here is to explore the viability of my apparent 'optimum' weight of 120lbs...in the short term, I am heading for 140lbs and see where I want to go from there! I am currently at my lowest post-pregnancy weight.

****************************************
My secondary goals are to work at gaining complete financial stability and to finally get my house straight.

SparkPoints: 34,418

Fitness Minutes: 683

My Goals:
To feel sexier

To not feel like everyone is staring if I run or eat in public

To set a good example to my kids

My Program:
When I first started here, I tracked my first week or so with no changes and found I was having at the most 600 cals....and that was a day I was feeling completely stuffed! A normal day could be as little as 200cals, weekends I often ate nothing at all. I couldn't imagine doubling my intake over night, so I worked on small changes. Firstly, there is an article that lists some high-calorie healthy foods, such things as nuts, seeds, dairy etc. I stocked up on those and snacked on them to bulk up my intake.

I never had breakfast at that time, so I started making a point of doing so. I considered my first food of the day breakfast, but only if I ate it before 11.30, anything after that became lunch.

I kept track of my breakfast streak, starting off with a streak of only 3 or 5 for the first few weeks, gradually creeping up to become 30, 40, then more. Now I can't function without breakfast!

Now I have learned to listen to my body...that is the key!

Personal Information:
I am Tonia, 39 yrs old, from Devon, UK.
Newly separated from my husband, but still tied due to his disabilities.
I have 3 beautiful girls aged 19,17 and 10.


Other Information:
At the age of 16, I dealt with the normal stresses of being that age by simply not eating. My lowest weight at that time was 6 and a half stone (91lbs). I can still remember now how I looked in the mirror at that time...I can remember the podgy tummy looking back at me!
I now know the truth... MIRRORS LIE!!! When we are skinny, they make us see the fat and when we become fat, they show us some super-slim something. Mirrors show the us we think we are...I rely on photos to show how I look now, they show us as others see us.

We will land this plane in 6,496 miles.
If we exercise 3,248 minutes today, we will be halfway there.
That's the same as 40 of us exercising approximately 82 minutes or 1:22.

So get your walking shoes, and let's get a-moving to Egypt.

{NOTE: POSTING IS KEY TO LANDING FIRST!!!!}

And don't forget to MIND your SODIUM!
