I am a 55 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 ! 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!

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.

    Even more exciting when you know it will be hard to find, in a sense!!! Wow, so interesting, there are so many properties on the market here it is crazy... Because the interest rates are very low, lots of people are selling in order to buy something else, like I did.
    Take good care of yourself, stay warm!!! emoticon

    Sweet baby boy, love the pic...bet he melts your heart. One of life's best blessings, to grow our families. I am confident tea was delightful, full of many snuggles and giggles. The grands being here has been suuuuuch a blessing. It has been hard to shake the sadness from the holiday season...this sure helped. I forget all the little things that accompany children, and with our range of toddler to teens? Keeps me on my toes, and oh so happy!

    I hope you are warm, and well. I think of you often, your gentle spirit...a true gift. Hugs my friend!

    Thank you very much Wendy, I am glad you understand. I know it is silly as everybody is always so wonderful on SP! And I'll turn the page, but it took me by surprise and shocked me.

    I hope you had the best day, Nana. Sweet, sweet girls...funny how they capture our hearts and bring incredible joy. I am constantly struck by little man bringing up Perrin in ways I can never understand...powerful that he feels tiniest one's presence as well. Off to Denver tomorrow to check on our kids...tough time to grieve. This year of firsts of everything stinks...and her oldest sister delivered a healthy baby boy two weeks ago. Sigh! My heart is heavy, yet healing...thanks for helping me fight my way through. Love and hugs for you!
