I am tracking my workouts with Fitbit and I would love to have more friends there and we can challenge, motivate and support each other. Add me: sgracej@gmail.com

April 2015: I am now 88 kgs heavy and I need to loose almost 20 kgs to be at an optimum weight. I am gently easing myself into physical activity - I have a knee problem and it starts aching if I over do the exercising.

I'm a ovo-vegetarian and I also like dairy. I've never liked the taste of meat and I don't think I will be eating meat anytime now. I am trying to make the following changes to my diet:
* Eating breakfast every day.
* Avoiding most processed food except for multigrain bread.
* Eating more protein to meet my daily requirements of protein
* Drinking at least 8 cups of water a day.
