I am a 55 year old woman of British origin living in Germany. I have three beautiful daughters and 2 sweet little granddaughters. Before finding SparkPeople, I had been podgy and unfit for at least 7 years and was fed up (to the gills) of that - it was time to move! I am reading a lot about self-sabotage and mindless eating - I want to eat fattening things when I am bored, upset and funnily enough when I am chatting away on the phone.... 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 walking and elliptical) 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! April 15: made it to my 2nd maintenance anniversary and feel ! Dez 15: Having a tough time after my mother died in October. General overeating and lack of purpose. Weight gain of 6 pounds which I dispise. This is going to stop - NOW! Feb 2016: I am moving faster again now, 2 pounds down and feeling a lot calmer! I know this is doable..... April 2016: lost 4lbs of the winter regain, so will start working on getting back down to 59kg, my maintainable happy weight.

My Goals:
I started off wanting to look better in clothes, to feel more confident at work and just to move at a faster pace and to have more general energy.
Now after more than 3 years on SparkPeople I feel at home here and love having lovely people to cheer on and be encouraged by too!

My Program:
tracking my nutrition and fitness and jogging/walking as well as a dumbbell-workout and general gymnastics/dancing in the sitting room.

    Sometimes , I still wish I lived there. This was such a magical time in my life. I was, for the first time, responsible for myself. I proved to myself, that I could take car of me! This lesson I will never forget, and when there are times I think I just can't do it, I remember, that I can! I love Scotland with all my heart! I think I was Scottish in my former life! emoticon ( I hope this is the Scottish flag.. its hard to tell in that little box at the top! )

    The dicentra is gorgeous. You are very green fingered. My friend has just sent me a picture of the cake - it's certainly unique! I intend to indulge, but not much room for a full tummy in that dress! Are you looking forward to your weekend? X
