My Goals:
My major goals are to eat more healthily and to lose 40 - 50 pounds. I would like to carry more lean muscle and less fat. I want to be able to look at food and decide whether it is good enough to eat by the healthy ingredients it contains rather purely by taste.

My Program:
I am an absolutely devout 'foodie' so my programme will involve creating recipes that are tasty as well as good for me (and my husband!). We are very careful not to eat any processed foods (so all of our food is 'slow food' BUT we are not good about fat and carbs. Steve is lean and I am NOT - I'm certain I can create dishes that are satisfying for both of us and filling and *good* for me too. We both love to cycle so I will be looking to cycle more (often and longer) in an effort to burn calories. Ideally, my perfect programme would allow me to eat anything I wanted to and to burn off excess calories through exercise (mainly cycling).

Hello there! I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm a Sparkfriend of Anja's. I'm also an American living abroad. I am originally from Georgia, but have lived in the Liverpool area for 13 years. My husband is from Manchester. I thought you might be interested in hearing from another American living over here. Susan emoticon

I guess in the end I *did* lose nearly 5 lbs. Between the last time I weighed myself on the 2nd and this morning it is 4.8 lbs gone, which is great!

(Also, it's not water, because I supposedly lost 4.6% body fat too, which isn't possible; which means I'm still retaining water from the flight.)

SOOOO, it looks like I might be winning that contest with my cousin Pretty Soon. LOL.

Have an awesome dinner party tonight!

Glad you enjoyed the pool today.

I didn't actually lose 5 lbs. Spark People has a weird way of calculating weight loss that I don't really understand. It went up and down while I was there - which isn't really worth commenting on daily.

This morning it was an all-time low (14st 4.8lbs), but not by a whole lot. And I was more interested in saying "goodbye" given the amount of time we had...

Thanks for a fun time!
