Sheleen - shedding pounds (I Hope!)

I'm a mum of four, hurtling(screaming and kicking) into my late forties - happily married to the most wonderfully patient and understanding man on the planet! I am also a grandma to Lily Anne Rose and Alistair. They call me Nonna. I am a very proud Nan :) I am also a grandma-in-waitng to twin girls, due in April 2016 :)
I started to diet when my scales broke because I weighed too much. That was around the 280lb mark. I'm now down 140lbs from there, and have just 18lb more to go.

**********************************
Well, from June until November 2008, I gained over 40 lbs - after doing so well, I could have kicked myself (only then I might've fallen over - not easy to kick yourself!). Instead, I gave myself a good talking to, and changed my life back around.

I started off again with 44 lbs to lose, and after reaching the halfway mark and already having shed 22 lbs, I'm feeling much more positive. I'm expecting bad days, hard days and downright awful days (weeks, even!) but I WILL succeed!

******************************************
*

Oh, how the slim have gained weight! I have so much to lose, that I am somewhat daunted - 75lbs is my goal now, and I kn ow how hard that will be. Still, maybe now I have actually admitted how much I weigh and managed to find the will to weigh myself again, things will be easier. The hardest part was getting on those scales again... what a horrid shock! From now on, it's downwards all the way (downwards in weight... maybe I should have said "downwards all the weigh"...?) and up, up, up in happiness and contentment!

******************************************
*****

Starting over - not making promises to myself or other people... just trying to succeed and taking everything one day at a time :)

Fitness Minutes: 11,461

My Goals:
My main goal is to be so in control of my diet and health, that I am able to come off all my meds for diabetes...
I yearn to fit back into my leather jacket so I can ride pillion with my darling Hubby :)
I want to go outside and not think that people are looking at me because I'm so fat and ugly.
To run around with my grandchildren would be amazing!

My Program:
I exercise every day - without fail. And I am trying to eat properly and healthily.

I used to exercise for at least one hour every day, but because of my rheumatoid arthritis, I had to start reducing the amount of exercise I did - I don't want to rely on exercise for weight loss, but rather eat well and stay active.



Personal Information:
I'm a stay-at-home mum of four, happily married to a wonderful man. I have 4 grandkids - the eldest call me 'Nonna'.
My friends call me 'Charley' or 'Sheleen'... and sometimes 'oi!'
Now in my 40's - I would love to look like I'm still in my twenties (only in my dreams). *lol*

Other Information:
I love christmas movies and reading ghost stories and thrillers. Love anything to do with fitness, dieting, food, DIY and gardening on the television... and very loud music :)
Hampshire strawberries and Italian baby plum tomatoes are probably the two foods I couldn't live without... but pizza and chocolate come pretty darn close *lol*

Hi Sheleen,

I've just been catching up on your blog--my, what a roller coaster you have been on! But it seems to be working for you, so more power to you! I am not so lucky--I think I gained a couple of pounds just reading about what you were eating. (poor, poor me.... lol)

Have a great week!
