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!

So great about the two pounds you lost! !! That's just right. My story is so close to yours. I've been back on the program for four weeks, no cheating or wine. I haven't lost anything. That's frustrating but I'm not going to give up. Just wanted to complain to someone I know would understand. I know my two pound lose its right around the corner.

So glad you are learning some new instruments. I play the flute. Wish I could give you lessons. Sing alto too but prefer tenor.... They have all the amazing parts. Music is such a delight. Take care my friend. . emoticon emoticon Jan

Congratulations on moving through the Day 1 vidoe for January Jumpstart! I don't think I had a lot of style or grace myself, but we got our hearts moving, and that's what counts. Keep up the great work! emoticon
