Hello, I am Paula a 49 year old married mother of two. Jake 21 and Sarah 20.

Currently weight in at 53.8 kilo's I aim to maintain at 52 kilo's.

I left sparkpeople a while ago. I decided to come back to sparkpeople to really get my weight loss under control this time.

I know I am not obese by any means but still for me I have too much weight on for my hips to carry around.

I have slight hip osteoarthritis in both hips. Doctors and specialists told me a few years ago I would need to have 2 hip replacements which I refused to have, or at least put off as long as possible. I am doing things naturally, fixing my diet, weight loss and the like.

I also have Scoliosis in my back have had it since I was a teenager. I wore a back brace then for 2 years which prevented it getting any worse.

My issues make exercising very difficult. So am unable to do much of that other than normal stuff like housework, gardening when I am able.

I try to eat healthy and organically where possible and avoid all preservatives and additives and processed food where and when I can. Plus I am wheat free not Gluten free & trust me when I tell you there is a difference between the two because there is.

I Drink reverse osmosis water from my water filter. Use Australian made and owned cleaning products that are non toxic and without any harsh chemicals.

I have interests in candles, reading, feng shui, computers, positive thinking, spirituality, new age thinking, Leptin Diet, soccer and gardening & beginning Sewing / quilting to name a few.

I wish everyone who views my Spark Page success with your health & weight loss and other goals.

Remember it's not a diet but a healthy lifestyle!

Take Care and Keep Smiling, Paula :)

    emoticon My Wonderful Spark Friend !!
    Remember just because it is a Holiday Weekend doesn't mean you can't have a good time and stay on track... just watch be sure to weight the hamburger meat out to 3-4 ounces, layer it with plenty of veggies like lettuce, cucumbers, onions, radishes or your favorites!! Try adding some grilled vegetables to the list... Family BBQ's can be the greatest way to get your family on board to trying fresh grilled vegetables and "Yes" even grilled "Fruits"... Try gilled fruit and veggie kabobs... along with your favorite salsa. Even visit Chef Meg for some of her favorite recipes for grilling!!

    emoticon "Memorial Day Weekend Blessings!!" emoticon
    Remember to Plan for those desserts to, no more than 1/8th of a slice if you put it on your tracker!! You should have plenty of room for it!! Let's be Happy with our choices, not sorry about it later! emoticon

    emoticon Don’t completely eliminate foods that you actually LOVE.

    Chances are that if you completely cut out foods you absolutely love, you’ll spring back into old eating habits pretty quickly. Unless your doctor informs you of a health condition that requires food elimination, or unless you choose to eliminate a food for personal reasons, let go of the idea of “bad” foods and learn to enjoy them in moderation instead. Pasta? Rice? A piece of chocolate cake? Enjoying these once in a while won’t derail all of your hard work and they aren’t “unhealthy” in proper portions. It is all about portion control...

    Things do get a bit tricky with this “don’t” though. You have to figure out the best method of non-elimination for you. For example, if you keep your favorite food in the house and know you aren’t able to control how much you eat, then don’t keep it in the house. Instead, enjoy it only when you go out.
