Wendy, you are worth it! Nana - itīs time to move!

I am a 53 year old woman of British origin living in Germany. I have three beautiful daughters and 1 sweet granddaughter. Before finding SparkPeople, I had been podgy and unfit for at least 7 years and was fed up (to the gills) of that - itīs time to move! I am reading a lot about self-sabotage and mindless eating - getting to grips with cravings by drinking green smoothies and eating grapes regularly because they curb my cravings!

I am reading a lot about self-sabotage and mindless eating - getting to grips with cravings by drinking green smoothies and eating grapes regularly because they curb my cravings!

I am 5 feet 2 inches tall and weighed in at 67 kilos in August 2012 - I reached my goal weight of 58 kilos in April 2013.

June 2013: getting to grips with maintenance mode and very relieved that I am managing to incorporate exercise (mainly running and swimming) on a regular basis to my new active lifestyle- I really feel out of sorts now if I have a lazy day!!

March 14: drinking my greens for a change - hope the scales like them too!! At the moment I am working on getting below 58 kg again, 59.4 kg at the moment, so it can be done!

Sept 14: my weight is hovering in the 59 kg range, but I am fine with that as long as I keep moving and eating wholesome food!

SparkPoints: 43,968

Fitness Minutes: 49,895

My Goals:
I want to look better in clothes, feel more confident at work and just to move at a faster pace than up til now and have more general energy.
Update 8th April 2013: I have lost 9 kilos and definately look more streamlined in my clothes. I move a lot faster than I used to and enjoy running up stairs, jogging through the park or whizzing around on my bike now. My bosses and co-workers have noticed that I question decisions more often and make suggestions on how to re-assess certain work processes - all in all, I have come a long way in the last 8 months!

My Program:
tracking my nutrition and fitness and jogging/walking as well as a dumbbell-workout and general gymnastics/dancing in the sitting room. Swimming two to three times a week for 45 mins.

Other Information:
March 2013: I have lost about 90% of the weight I want to get rid of - feeling postive that I will make it this time around - I am fed up of giving up!!
Update April 2013: I am within 100 grams of my goal weight of 58kg and am amazed at all the changes I have been able to make in the last 8 months thanks to SparkPeople and all itīs brave Sparkies!
Update 18.4.13: I weighed in at 57.7kg, surpassing my goal - WooHoo!
I write different types of lyrics and poems, sing in a female choir and enjoy travelling to different countries as well as reading quite a lot. I also love gardening!

Enjoy your visit to Scotland. Wish I could be with you. Some of the best days we've had my husband and I spent in Scotland.

Thanks for following my activity and blogging efforts. It's great to see a buddy caring all the way from Germany. We'll make it, Girl!

Isn't that the best part of doing things alone? Doing it how you want to do it! I have an ipod, and I figure Taylor Swift and I will go to Disneyland and we will go to the beat of our own drummer and there is no question of where should we eat lunch, what ride should we go on, the world will be my oyster... well the disneyLAND that is! ;)

Thanks for always being so supportive, I appreciate it so much! :D

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blogs. The web page is invitationsbyhand.org I am still tweaking bits of it, and adding more stock daily as the images in my head are slowly transformed into life. Obviously you love your flowers too from the looks of your photo, I will have a delve tonight when I have washed my brushes for the day. x Debs x
