I started my weight loss journey in 2012, and by my first SparkVersary had lost a total of 6kg (~13lb). I celebrated my second SparkVersary on 11 February 2014 with a further 6kg loss. I earned my 15kg badge on 23 April 2014.

Then Life, The Universe, and Everything got hard.

So here I am 20 January 2015 to start over, having regained 10 of the 15kg lost.

I'm not going to beat myself up, life happens. But I was ill-prepared for it happening all at once! As well as developing a strong, fit, and healthy physical me, I will be building on my psychological resilience.

Member Since: 1/8/2011

My Goals:
Being the best me, one healthy choice at at time.

My Program:
5:2 Intermittent Fasting diet - Fast days are Monday and Thursday. Eating within Spark People calorie range on other days.

Being strong. I have mastered Pilates roll-ups, now I'm improving the length of time I can do planks and I would like to do at least one burpee with good form!

Cycle to work/uni every day. Attempting to improve on my time of 35 minutes.

Spark People 'Exercise of the Day' and videos.

BeFit in 90 workout system 5/week or strength exercises (lower body, core, upper body) on Spark People.

Don't see my 'fitness' minutes as exercise alone, but activities in which I wish to participate and have fun.

    Thanks Jacqueline I like fresh fruit especially pineapple or berries. It has been years since I went berry picking.

    Thanks Jacqueline I appreciate your comment. Through my writing in a prayer journal and in poetry I am able to express how I feel and let it go.

    Thanks for thinking of me and sending a spark goodie! I find it so interesting that I started doing better (as in making better choices) as soon as I left the competition. It's like my self-imposed pressure in the comp was adding to my poor decision making ability. So weird I'm glad we met through the team - a definite positive. Have a lovely evening. Lisa

    thanks for reading my pound rewards blog. when you make your list of rewards, I'd love to see it. I'm going to go through and revamp mine to hopefully make it more motivating. Thanks for inspiring me to revisit my list!
