Stay on track
Show the world you can do it!

You can never get so far away from your goal weight that you cannot get to it.

There are some difficulties for me when it comes to success in losing weight. Hypothyroidism, creaky sore joints and insulin resistance would be the main ones! And they create a strong barrier.

My Goals:
I am aiming for:
Stronger mind, easier body. I will persist until I am wrinkly and slim.

Keep the hope alive. Be grateful for small and large mercies.
Willingly walk up and down the hills.
Eat well monitoring portions.

My Program:
Drink water frequently.
Eat lean protein, monounsaturated fats and low GI carbohydrates to manage hunger, cravings and mood.

Intermittent very low calorie days.

Once a few kg have gone walking will be easy again and I will walk.

Keep myself happy, motivated and expectant by reading positive spark pages, choosing what I believe what goes into my mind, coaching myself, doing the above and believing it will happen.

Personal Information:
Never have been thin so have no idea what it feels like.

Other Information:
Love reading...Lesley Pearse, Anita Shreve, Maeve Binchy, Jodi Picoult, Janet Evanovich! As well, I use audio novels from the library when driving.

I have a little caravan which I tow to rallies every summer month.

Vegetable growing is important to me. Fresh is best :)

    I am living in Auckland and it is very dry. I wish it will rain. Our lawn is dead and only the weeds are growing. I am sure the children are having a good time on the beaches. My plants are struggling a bit. Nice to meet you.
