Well here I am again, on another restart. I am at a loss at what to say. I have said it all so often. But on I will go again. Summer is here and my summer clothes beckoning and I am not a pretting sight in them.


I make a promise to all who read my page. I AM GOING TO BLOG EVERY DAY GOOD OR BAD RESULTS, ITS ALL GOING IN.

Member Since: 1/6/2006

Fitness Minutes: 70

My Goals:
My name is Joan (Jo) aged 51yrs and my long term goal is to lose 4stone (56lbs). I have tried many many times to lose weight, but every time, I return to my old bad habits and of course, back comes all the weight, and more. I am now at the heaviest I have ever been. That being 14 stone (196lbs) and at 5' 3" that makes me a bit tubby. I am also feeling very very tired all of the time, I just dont ever seem to have any energy. Everything is an effort not so much physically but mentaly too.

My Program:
I have tried all of the diets in the past and they have all worked, but I hate to be retricted as to what and when I can eat. My plan now is to eat what I want making healthy choices where ever and when ever I can and log my calorie intake on SP

Personal Information:
I live in the North East of England, County Durham. I am very hapily married (2nd time) I have 1 beautiful daughter, two beautiful step daughters and a beautiful stepson. I have no family at home, I work permernat nights and sleep very little. I have far to much spare time on my hands day and night. My email address is

Other Information:
I really must get my head around some exercise. I love to read. Other interests are gardening, driving to fab little quaint English villages and having cream teas in those fab little tea shops, shopping and walking and lots n lots of things. BIG PROBLEM IS I JUST NEED TO MOTIVATE MYSELF, once I do i know I will enjoy these things again.

    Hi Jo, I haven't been doing very good on my eating. I have been walking 2 miles each day, but the scale shows nothing yet. I am getting frustrated! I know I still have snack attacks at night and that is a big fault of mine. How are you doing?? Miss you emoticon

    I just wanted to let you know that you are not alone in "starting over". I'm doing it too! If you ever need a really motivating and supportive team that hates exercise but most of the time does it anyway, then we would love to have you on our "I Hate Exercise" team!

    See you on the boards!
