Slender Claire is getting there (again!)...

...slowly but surely!

I originally joined SparkPeople in March 2009. I had let myself go.
Being tall, I can carry a lot of weight before it really shows, but I had pushed that about as far as it would go. My peak weight (in early 2009) was 13st 5lbs (187 lb).

Thanks to SparkPeople, I lost 2 stone (28lbs), and dropped at least one pants size - nearer two. Looked great, and attracted much favourable comment. But then relaxed and thought I knew it all. Stopped ...

Thanks to SparkPeople, I lost 2 stone (28lbs), and dropped at least one pants size - nearer two. Looked great, and attracted much favourable comment. But then relaxed and thought I knew it all. Stopped being so careful with my wine intake (I do love my red wine!) and gradually crept up and up, till I am now back at 13st (182 lbs). Still a little way off that peak, but I need to take charge again. My old lifestyle is not sustainable.

Time to relight the Spark!

Other Information:
I sing (tenor!) in our local church choir - great bunch of people. I was an alto but we ran short of MEN, and though we now have a brilliant new real tenor, I'm still there...

I also sing in a choral society for more challenging pieces in a larger group. Currently working an a Bruckner Mass (No 2 in E minor) and a Parry motet: "At the round earth's imagined corners sing". Concert in April.

Oh, and I'm trying to teach myself the trumpet... And the flute...

I just love making a noise!

I don't have a cold remedy. I think my immune system must be very good. I can't remember the last time I had a cold. I just know it was years ago! I'm very lucky.

Hi Claire,
How's it going? Thank goodness Sparkpeople doesn't boot you out if you relapse and have to start again!!!!
Hope you're still enjoying your walks. x

Is that the squeak of an elliptical trainer I hear from the East?
