Hello! Welcome to my page, come on in...

Hi! I'm Fiona and am a 41 year old wife and mother from the UK. I have been a member of Spark since June 2008 and, although I haven't lost the weight I wanted to (12lbs), have found the motivation to keep on going and not let my weight creep back up.

So, here's my story:

I have been trying to shift the last stone I put on when I was pregnant for the last 18 years! Every year I would try again either with Weightwatchers or Slimming World or another online diet ...
Hi! I'm Fiona and am a 41 year old wife and mother from the UK. I have been a member of Spark since June 2008 and, although I haven't lost the weight I wanted to (12lbs), have found the motivation to keep on going and not let my weight creep back up.

So, here's my story:

I have been trying to shift the last stone I put on when I was pregnant for the last 18 years! Every year I would try again either with Weightwatchers or Slimming World or another online diet programme and every year I would lose a bit and then not be able to afford to carry on with the programme and give up; hoping that I can keep it going myself. Who am I kidding, I can't do it myself - who can? So, here I am trying again, the difference this time is that when I got to the stage where I would have had to give up due to financial pressures I have been able to continue due to Spark being free. Thank you so much SparkPeople.

The other reason I love SP is that I can record my fitness. I try to go for a run (or trot in my case) 3x per week as well as swimming 2x per week. I also try to fit in some strength training 3x per week.

Thanks for visiting my page. If you would like to add me as a friend, please do so. If you would like me as a buddy, please ask.

Thanks for the support Fi, no baby in site yet.. due Friday ... The web site will be more about the 3% of the people who have a fairly usual auto immune problem that affects the Thyroid including the weight gain and controlling it problems.

I am doing it more as place to record things for myself to be honest. The experts say 3% do put weight on, but also. most of them, say that is due to feeling of being hungry, and we over eat without knowing, feel tired, so don't exercise. I can't think of any other reason! It makes no sense to gain with an overactive thyroid! .. and yet ........

So anyone will be welcome to call in on it and comment, but I can't say what direction it will take .. my other was for wood turning ... and there is all sorts of stuff on now , even a page for the Rubber Pterodactyl mascot!!
