I'm an LA beach girl living in Ireland the last 10 years. I'm single, with no children and for the last 10 years have always taken the LAZY eating plan... fast food, microwave, UNHEALTHY.... why not when my clothes have gone from shorts to bulky sweaters!

I'm getting older (late 40's) and realizing that I WANT to be healthy. I WANT to have some control over what I'm putting in my body and what I'm doing with it. I am so tired of losing 30 -40 every year and putting it back on again and then some! I lost 60 pounds last year! Don't know why I choose to sabotage myself... but... it's time to get fit for 50!

Thanking God for his help and all my supportive people in my life

Personal Information:
I'm Irish born but lived in Los Angeles from 10 months old. I am now 48 and have been living back in Ireland the last 10 years. Don't see it as somewhere I'll always be.... can't get used to the climate (too wet, it's a high price to pay for being known as the Emerald Isle!). For now, I love travelling Europe, but the USA will always be home.....

Other Information:
It's a lifestyle! Diets work while you're on them, but once you've lost your weight???? In my early 30's I lost 120 pounds on a program where you eat their food. I worked so hard and swore I'd never put it back on.... I'm now 49 and doing it AGAIN! It's taken me a while to get around to it because I kept telling myself I CAN'T do it again.

    Thank you so much for the informative info on Ryan Air. My Irish cousins have said the same. I will be only going to London for a 3 day weekend and plan on bringing a couple of outfits in a carry on bag. Thanks for visiting my blog.

    Thanks Lizz, I'll assume that's your name. I only wish I were as strong as you think. Many failures, like you've experienced too, just makes it more important to really focus and work harder. I have good days and bad days still. I just try to make the bad days fewer. I still go up and down, but not nearly as much. This time I stop it brfore it gets too far and get back on my program. Keep the faith my friend. We'll get there!
