Health is Beauty

After suffering from an an eating disorder on and off for 8 years, I have finally learned that skinny isn't beautiful... healthy is! That's why I'm here.

My Goals:
My goal is to lose just a few pounds - those I put on after recovery because I didn't know what healthy eating was - and to look after my body. I want to be toned and fit, and have great skin... I want to weigh 55kg by the end of summer, I weigh 60 at the moment. Ikg per month, a healthy, steady loss.

My Program:
Healthy eating with occasional treats, work out (30 mins cardio, 30 mins weights and resistance) 3-4 times weekly... and I haven't got a car, so I walk everywhere!

Personal Information:
I'm from Scotland, living in Italy at the moment. I took a year out after uni to teach English and improve my Italian. Next year I'm moving to England to do a two year grad programme... then, who knows? I have a great family even though we're far apart and a wonderful byfriend who is gradually teaching me to love myself as I am. He doesn't know how serious I am when I tell him he saved my life. I don't think he realises how bad my ED was. I weighed 42kg for 172cm tall - not healthy.

Other Information:
Fave books? All of them! I'm always reading, always got my nose in a book, from fiction, to history, to economics to natural history, to science, to politics... I'm a geeeeeeeek!

Music - anything lively! Love Carlos Santana and wish I could play the guitar like him, but I'm too lazy to practice that often.

How are you?
Any plans for this summer?

Hope everything else is ok.
I heard from my family is quite hot in Italy at the moment. It is ok in Austria, not too hot...but it never is for me.


Keep in touch

Hello my friend- Just stopping by to say Hi and see how you are doing.
Are you on track? Having any difficulties?
What are you doing for the summer?

With the increase in prices we are pretty much home bound this summer so Im
trying to find things to do locally to keep my growing 13 yo busy!
Visits to the park see to be popular this year...we are attempting to learn to play tennis!
At least we are getting sun and exercise! My son needs that as much as I do- they have
a tendency to turn into couch potatoes if we let them!
If we can swing it we will try to get to the beach the end of August.
My son loves to go crabbing!

Stay on track and keep in touch...
Have a great July!
