Welcome to the team and to Spark People.
You have come to the right place. This site has so many tools and resources that are so helpful and easy to use. I have personally found the trackers to be my greatest ally. Before I joined Spark People I thought I was doing well. When I started tracking my food I found just how wrong I was. Since then I have made sure that I track every day and everything I eat (even when I splurge.) I am now making better decisions on what and how much I eat because I am being held accountable by the tracker.
The team is here to offer support and encouragement on this journey that we are all on. As we continue on this journey we remember that we are all in this together.
I have decided to join up now 12 days before I disappear to Kenya for my late Summer holiday, so that I am organised when I come home and don't eat for Britain from now till I go on 11-10-11. Otherwise I will eat stupidly till I go away then dawdle about for a couple of weeks afterwards and the Christmas party dress will need to come courtesy of the Tent makers!!!
I am 56, 5ft nothing and 10st 9.5lbs as of now and clothes are beginning to get a bit tight.
Since all the best info tells me that this is overweight, I need to do something serious about it before, like my 81 yr old mum, I struggle to get the body out of the chair.
I have problems with comfort eating, I can go for weeks and be good and then I can spend days eating just everything that comes to hand, not because I need or even enjoy it, just because I feel I must.
I could do with getting more sleep than I do and would welcome any ideas on how to live a normal life, with a job which requires enough of a commute 4 days per week to make me get up at 4.45am and not get home till 630 pm.
How do I get the sleep I should, fit in social life, housework and exercise in the time left? Any ideas?
Thanks for listening
Every day I look at my own worst enemy in the mirror. Some day we will be friends. My ticker is lbs not kilos
