Hi

I joined this site quite some time ago, but never looked at the boards or joined any teams. BIG mistake!

My highest weight was 215 pounds, not good at all when only 5' 2"

I'm from the UK and lived in Canada, B.C for three years, 2002-2005.

We (hubby and I) left Canada Nov 2005 so I kinda fell off the wagon of diet/exercise.

Hi

I joined this site quite some time ago, but never looked at the boards or joined any teams. BIG mistake!

My highest weight was 215 pounds, not good at all when only 5' 2"

I'm from the UK and lived in Canada, B.C for three years, 2002-2005.

We (hubby and I) left Canada Nov 2005 so I kinda fell off the wagon of diet/exercise.

I didn't want to stay in the UK so we moved to Malta, a tiny island between Italy and Tunisia (North Africa).


My diet has been yoyoing but I'm still heading towards my goal.


In October 2006 I did something I've wanted to do for years, and that was get "the girls" reduced (blimey what an intro!)
I went from a 42FF to a 36/38B-C the 36/38 came from diet and exercise.

It was the best thing I have ever done, and exercising is soooo much easier!
It gave me the motivation to get the rest of my body in shape.

I work from home, sit at the computer all day, so the weight just piled on.


One GREAT bit of health news is that both hubby and I gave up smoking in August 2009 and we haven't had any since!



UPDATE October 2011

I am now a Qualified Personal Trainer amongst other things!

Level 2 Gym Fitness Instructor
Level 2 Studio Resistance (Body Pump)
Level 2 Group Indoor Cycling (Spinning)
Level 2 Circuit Training
Level 3 Personal Trainer (includes Nutrition and Weight Management)

You are doing so well. I guess my age is going against my program, but I keep trying. Since I am care-giver for Hubby, I don't have much time to put into the program.

We lived in Central African Republic for 13 yrs. I couldn't do it now since I get sweats with the least exertion and CAR is too hot! emoticon for wanting to help. emoticon
