Weight of 9-9.5st. To be able to walk uphill without being the last person and sounding like Thomas the Tank Engine! To be flexible again. To be able to sit on my feet without my knees exploding.
I switched to the 5:2 fast diet in March 2013, mostly to help reduce my considerable cancer risk. Then switched again in November 2013 to alternate day fasting, as I found two days a week was not enough for me to lose weight. I still follow the golden rules of Paul McKenna on my non fast days, as he has served me well, assisting me to lose 50lbs.
I like all animals but especially cats. I am keen on cross stitch, and gardening. I like steam engines. I am a karate purple belt.
My message to help motivate you & ( Especialy ) Me this week is
“Don't rely on someone else for your happiness and self-worth. Only you can be responsible for that. If you can't love and respect yourself – no one else will be able to make that happen. Accept who you are – completely; the good and the bad – and make changes as YOU see fit – not because you think someone else wants you to be different.” – Stacey Charter
Thanks for commenting on my blog. 9.5 is nice, but the sad thing is that I weighed 2 pounds less a year ago. I've been going up and down 10 pounds for a while now, but that beats when I used to do the same with 40-60 pounds!
I love the new look of your page. The friends picture of the cats is adorable. Thank you for all your inspiration and support this round. I always enjoy your posts, and getting to know a bit about life in England.
