This is a month of exploration! Last month I moved to a new town, and I'm enjoying exploring, going out of my comfort zone, finding new things and places and people!

I'm working on a new Vision Board, because, guess what? Everything that was on the last one has happened! They work!

I'm in the FIRE cornerstone of the Four Cornerstones this month. Here's the link to Spark Fuel Improvement System. Perfect. Here's a link to Spark Guy's explanation of the system. www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_
individual.asp?blog_id=6354496

I am 63 yrs old, 5'3" tall and weigh around 8 stone (112lbs) - so I'm in the 'healthy' range. My goal is to maintain this.

I have learned to manage my behaviour around food with the NoS diet. Three 'proper meals' a day - no snacks, sweets or seconds on weekdays - with some freedom at the weekends and on special days like birthdays. Good old-fashioned regular eating pattern! My behaviour around food is being modified very happily with this system. So glad I found it. Check out the NoS team page if you're curious!

I want to be strong, fit, supple, happy, healthy, full of energy!

I'm keen to be lean!

".. every pound of weight loss results in five pounds of stress taken off your knees, seven pounds off your ankles, and a whopping ten pounds off your spinal discs!" it's worth the effort!

My Goals:
These are my physical goals: I want to have achieved the following:-

1) to get my weight down to 109lbs by the end of 2018. I have a personal firewall of 115lbs

2) to keep my waist under 29"

3) to maintain a supple and strong body into my later years

4)To be a slim, strong, fit woman!

April 2018: 8 stone (111lbs) BMI 19.7 (normal range) WHR 0.82 (average risk - avocado shape)


My Program:
I am currently following a daily strength-training programme on the darebee website which is working well for me - I track this on the darebee website.

For the behavioural/emotional reasons for eating: Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Weight Loss programme

NoS diet - No snacks, sweets or seconds except on days that begin with S.

I am practising making one of my three daily meals a lower-carb one: for me this means leaving out bread, pastry, pasta, potato, rice.

I am aiming to remain on a very low sugar diet. I am currently using Sweet Freedom (fruit syrup) and coconut sugar. I also have a small bottle of maple syrup. I already use unsweetened applesauce in baking, and know how to use date puree or bananas for sweetness.



Personal Information:
I live by the sea in the South West of the UK. I work full-time to provide services for adults with learning disabilities. I am a Nichiren Buddhist.
