Gerry and Me!

Shared Food Tracker
I am Kat, 49 years old and living and working in Cyprus. married to Gerry, and with two wonderful kids, Jack and Marininio.
Gods! I wish losing weight was simple! I hate diets, but must get going and lose those wretched excess kilos!
I work as Deputy Superintendent of our Radiology unit at the New Ammochostos General Hospital here in Deryneia, Cyprus, and this takes up most of my time, as I work very odd shifts...Despite this, Gerry and I have embarked on a calorie shift diet which helps, and , even if hours and things don't give me much leeway, I am determined to lose that weight by Christmas!
My goal in life is to be happy and to make others happy too!
Update-I have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer and am now post-op and awaiting chemo. It is not as bad as it sounds, the CT was clear, so no known metstases...let's hope all will go well!!!
Further Update- I am now doing chemo and things appear to be going well...of course I will know more when my next set of blood tests come through with the cancer markers, but I am hoping it is good news as the bone scan was clear too!!!
Update- I look like I saw a ghost and lost all my hair!!!! I changed my profile picture to a more recent one- and I have even less hair now than I did in that photo! I am sue it will all grow back tho- just a shock every time I look in the mirror!!! Next cycle of chemo-Wednesday 18th!
Update-I have now started my second round of chemo-taxol and herceptin-not as many side effects, thank God- things going well by all accounts!
Update- now on six-monthly appointments at the Oncologist...Good sign! Work is taking its toll, I wish I could gracefully retire and just do what i need to do at home...fat chance tho...
Update: Been away since I fell and broke my arm and dislocated my knee in December...Not much fun, I grant you...I am getting there though...hopefully back on my full feet soon :-)
1)To lose those pesky Kilos!
2)To get a healthier lifestyle for me and the family.
3)Just to be happy!
4)To beat breast cancer and live again!
1)To get from 90 kilos to 60 kilos by the new year.
2)To do cardio 3 times a week and Strength 3 times a week every week.
3) To keep to the program no matter what.
I am Kat, and I live and work in Cyprus. I am married to Gerry and have two wonderful kids, Jack and Marininio. I am deputy superintendent of the xray dept of our local hospital, I work incredibly stupid hours, and this makes keeping to a diet very difficult at times!
I need motivation frequently and I find that I get a lot here. Work keeps me from being able to do my diet properly and I find that I stray more than I should. I hope to be able to improve on this very soon.
I love reading, cooking, making friends, Horse riding, swimming, and many other things too numerous to mention!!
