I am taking on some changes this month: I am changing up my diet and exercise routines. Any kind of change to routine requires a lot of concentration and commitment - I have those - I'm a Spark-Gal!

I am 62 yrs old, 5'3" tall and weigh around 8 stone 2lbs - so I'm in the 'healthy' range. My issue is less being fat, and more about my relationship with food.

I am learning to manage my behaviour around food with the NoS diet which is working well for me. Three 'proper meals' a day - no snacks, sweets or seconds on weekdays - with some freedom at the weekends and on special days like birthdays. Good old-fashioned regular eating pattern! My behaviour around food is being modified very happily with this system. So glad I found it. Check out the NoS team page if you're curious!

I want to be fit, supple, happy, healthy, full of energy!

I'm keen to be lean!

I've also noticed that a lot of my status updates are about the weather - very British!

".. every pound of weight loss results in five pounds of stress taken off your knees, seven pounds off your ankles, and a whopping ten pounds off your spinal discs!" it's worth the effort!

My Goals:
These are my physical goals: I want to have achieved the following:-

1) to keep my weight under 8 stone 2lbs (my ticker is currently showing 114lbs as my goal to maintain)

2) to get and keep my waist under 29"

3) to maintain a supple and strong body into my later years

4)To be a slim, strong, fit woman!

March 2017: 8 stone (112lbs) BMI 19.9 (normal range) WHR 0.80 (moderate risk - avocado shape)


My Program:
I am currently following a daily running and strength-training programme on the darebee website which is working well for me - I track this on the darebee website.

For the behavioural/emotional reasons for eating: Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Weight Loss programme

NoS diet - No snacks, sweets or seconds except on days that begin with S.

For March, I am making one of my three daily meals a low-carb one: for me this means leaving out bread, pastry, pasta, potato, rice.
