I'm a wife and Mum of 5; an Australian living in Eastern Europe; a believer in Jesus and a reader. I'm also overweight and ready to do something about it. I've started exercising and am feeling better for it. It's time to get serious, though, on just what I'm eating, and making every day count.

The above was written September 2010. I've 'been doing something about it' for a while now. Feeling good, intending to reach goal in the next few months. Yes!

I'm a wife and Mum of 5; an Australian living in Eastern Europe; a believer in Jesus and a reader. I'm also overweight and ready to do something about it. I've started exercising and am feeling better for it. It's time to get serious, though, on just what I'm eating, and making every day count.

The above was written September 2010. I've 'been doing something about it' for a while now. Feeling good, intending to reach goal in the next few months. Yes!

Updated 1 April 2011. Only 5kg from goal now, it's so close I feel like I'm not just imagining it every day, but starting to actually live it - I'm getting stronger running and feeling great. People tell me I look younger and I know I feel it! I love being able to play with my kids physically, and use my self-control muscle when it comes to food and 'just doing it' with exercise.

I could spend my time thinking how long this weight loss has taken me (15 months and counting), bemoaning how many years I was overweight, or I can rejoice in the fact that I've spent these last 15 months doing something so worthwhile. I feel like I've taken my life back again. Yay!

Update 26 December 2012. I've wandered in the wilderness in recent months, but I'm back. I've re-set my ticker - definitely a depressing thing to do, but I'm being honest with myself and am ready to get strong and healthy again.
