I am a 56 year old woman of British origin living in Germany. I have three beautiful daughters, 2 sweet little granddaughters and a dear baby grandson. 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 tend to eat any cake that lands in front of me, so I am practicing choosing good quality or just having a small sample. 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 good ! 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. August 16 - I am still hovering on the wrong side of 60kg, but making progress as in 2 steps forward, 1 step back! January 2017: the flu knocked my appetite on the head, so I am happy to be below 59kg for a change!

    Hi Wendy!

    Sorry for taking so long to answer! Wow, January will be here soon... how exciting! Yes, I can imagine you must have a lot to do before then. I am glad I am not moving again next year!!!

    For my garden I completely cut one of the trees (the one that could have damaged my neighbour’s house if it fell as it made her nervous)... but for the 6 other ones, I only had the branches cut (very short!). That way I now have a very sunny garden but nothing is final and it gives me time to see how it evolves in the next couple of years before I decide if I want to remove more trees. For now I am planting some bushes and plants – but not a lot as my garden’s soil needs to be completely turned to remove all the weeds and level it. So far the estimate I have makes me worried, so I will ask some more!!! After that is done, it will just be my own work needed to take care of it all and add plants! I can’t wait! :) Just as I can imagine you can’t wait to enjoy your new garden... it will be wonderful to see it ‘wake up’ after winter!

    How my heart soared when I saw your update. One ocean apart...and yet you know! You understand...no words. When my head is out of the clouds, I will write more. Until then, just know it makes my heart happy that the universe is spinning and doing such a lovely job for you and yours. Safe travels...lovely times ahead sweet chica!

    Love and hugs for you...

    Yeah. I'm hoping the vortex of work doesn't suck me in too. My challenge is to keep within the eye of the storm. I hold myself there and I'll be fine.

    Hope you're enjoying your day. Have a good weekend!

    Hi Wendy ! Just travelling to the UK for meetings now. Thank you so much for the advice - I will remember that. I have been cutting the flowers when they turn brown and for now it is in a big pot. How are you doing? Any date yet for your move?
