I turn 40 in 2013 - nearly half way through.
I lost 20 Kilos since I started spark - but some twice. So its a net weight lost of 14 kilos.

But I realized - much more important than losing weight is to be happy with myself and healthy.
And thats my new goal.
Running, eating GOOD stuff. Having a well balanced lifestyle.


After 5 1/2 years in England, we moved back in September 2010 - a decision made by not-so-happy-circumstances.

It took me nearly 18 months to adapt being back in Germany.
A rough time where I've came last in line.

But now it seems getting better :)

I'm 39 years old, married and mum of a wonderful 8 year old girl. I ve never had problems with my weight until a thyroid problem started in my 20th. I gained 60 lb - and I wanna lose at minimum half of it :)

    Thank you, thank you for stopping by my blog and encouraging me. I really appreciate it! I know that I won't give up. I Feel so frustrated though. It seems that it's so much easier in the beginning when it can just fall off! I know too, that things that we really work hard for, feel so good when we get them. I saw that you had a thyroid problem. I do too, for about 30 yrs. now. Hypothyroid. Of course the one that causes our metalolism to be sluggish! We just have to put more steam ahead! I added you because someone as nice as you has to be my friend! emoticon I can use someone like you with your uplifting words! Thanks again, Karen

    Thank you for your comment on my page. Notice how I didnt say a size 8 or 10 ? This for me I believe would be a nice size to get down to. I was size a 12 when I was in my teens and as much as I cant get those years back Im sure I will get the size back haha!! Have a great week ahead emoticon
