Fitness Minutes: 13,785

My Goals:
1) to get to and keep my weight under 8 stone 7lbs
2) to get and keep my waist under 29"
3) to maintain a supple and strong body into my later years
To be a slim, strong, fit woman!

My Program:
One Year Challenge with Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Weight Loss programme.

This is about learning how to manage a tendency to eat crazily as an emotional eater!

I want to gradually incorporate more and more raw foods back into my diet, as that way of eating made me feel SO good!

My plan is about gradualism - which is in line with Spark People's recommendations - small changes lead to big results

Hi Gill! You're welcome! I know I sometimes may come on strong but I struggled with bullies as a child and later as an adult with my weight, and so my heart is to "protect" the people I care about.. I don't like to see anyone manipulated or hurt. Have a wonderful Sunday! emoticon emoticon

Thanks for commenting on my page. Yes, I update my weight every week. I'm 200.5. I look around 175. I have lots of muscle, but also lots of belly fat. I'm still working on it. Thanks for the compliment! It made my day!

TEN COMMANDMENTS OF SELF-LOVE

1. Accept yourself for who you are at this very moment. Appreciate the BEAUTY that makes you YOU:)

2. Be thankful for your blessings. You may not have everything you want but, you have ALL you need.

3. Make sure your worst enemy isn't dwelling in your own skin. Remember that you're always listening even if no one else can hear you!

4. Vow to take care of your body & work out daily! After all, it's the only place you have to live! Make it a happier, healthier place to reside in. YOU are your best investment.

5. Stay true to who you are & you will ALWAYS be happy! Gather all your crazy dreams, far fetched ambitions & big goals & build a life you love & are proud of!

6. Stop comparing yourself to who you're not! Girls compete with one another. Women EMPOWER each other.

7. Forgive yourself for every mistake, every heartbreak & every time you've fallen short. Self-forgiveness is a necessary & vital step to finding your inner peace.

8. Remember that you can't fix yourself by BREAKING someone else. ALWAYS choose kindness.

9. Focus your thoughts on what is good, what is admirable & what is positive. Never let your mind become consumed by negativity & hate. Never let your heart turn cold.

10. Say YES to adventure. Say YES to bliss. Say YES to the impossible. You never know when your heart will stop beating. Take the jump & free fall on the way down if you have to. Live with no regrets.
