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

Currently weight in at 56.6 kilo's I aim to maintain at 52 kilo's.

I left sparkpeople a while ago and since then have joined my local Weight Watchers and attend meetings each Wednesday. 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 have realised that you can very definitely loose weight without exercising by following these guidelines fairly strictly:

1. Eat three times daily only no snacks.
2. Allow 4 - 5 hours between each of the three meals.
3. Eat correct portion sizes.
4. Stop totally or limit your wheat intake.
5. Count or track your steps and aim to do no less than 3000 steps in a day.
6. Get 7 - 8 hours sleep each night.
7. Drink 7 - 8 glasses of water each day.
8. Stop drinking soda / soft drink.
9. Cut out your sugar. Consume only sugar of the natural kind found in fruits and honey.
10. Have a vision board with positive quotes, pictures and affirmations to do with your goals on it.

Following the steps above you can and will lose weight without any extra exercise than what you would no normally do in a day maintaining your home and garden.

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, Paula :)

Feelings are the language of soul calling us home – to embody our full-blooded human nature. To ignore them is to be cut off from the neck down. Mags MacKean
