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 :)

    Do you need to wait to feel hungry before eating? Worst Diet Advice: 'Only Eat When Hungry'

    Why you shouldn’t let hunger drive your dietary decisions . Don't believe it? What happens when you go to the supermarket hungry? Well you shop differently, of course, coming home with items you'd have never purchased on a full stomach. And what happens when you sit down to a meal hungry? Well you're still shopping of course, only this time you're shopping from your plate, your fridge, your cupboards, your freezer, or worst of all, from a menu. emoticon

    Thanks for visiting my blog and the support. Osteoarthritis is one of the issues that I deal with in my cervical spine, my hips, pelvis, knees, and lower back. I also deal with auto-immune diseases and some days, all I really want to do is breathe and sleep. Like today, I forgot to take my allergy pill, so the coughing has commenced. Ah well, most days things go along really well and for me, the pain is way WAY down (thanks to great chiropractor and registered massage therapist). I also got new hikers, so my feet are happy and I'm standing much better (which makes my back/pelvis and hips happy too). I hope you are having a great day!!
