I was a lot slimmer and quite happy at this point in the Maldives.

My Dad and I with my beautiful daughter at her wedding on 8/6/13. Inspiration for weight loss!

I am determined to lose 100lbs before I hit 50. I am 48 this year so I can definitely achieve it. I spent the last 15 years just growing, so now it is time to shrink back!! I have Bi-Polar disorder which has had an effect on my weight gain for many different reasons, mainly medication. But I am not going to let that stand in my way any more.

Member Since: 6/12/2013

My Goals:
1. To lose 100lbs
2. To run 5k no probs
3. To be proud of myself
4. To be confident in how I look
5. To start dating
6. To regain my confidence in travelling alone.

My Program:
1. Using Spark People for guidance and motivation with tracking etc.
2. Going to the gym regularly
3. Will monitor on a weekly basis for inspiration
4. This will come
5. When the other goals start being acheived!
6. I will start small with overnight trips.

Personal Information:
My name is Kate, I am 47 and live in Oxford, UK. I have two jobs, one for Utilities and the other as a Social Worker for the NHS. I have 3 grown up children; 1 is still at home and I have been single since 2003 which is quite sad. I also have a lovely grandson who is 18 months old.

Other Information:
I love reading, mostly thrillers, horror and detective genres, although I do like fun books too. I love to travel and want to do more. There are so many places I want to see, I can't let my weight hold me back anymore. I also am a rock music fan. I do like and listen to other styles, but rock is my favourite; metallica being the very best! As a hobby I started growing vegetables three years ago, and am so far doing quite well. I plan to give my whole garden an overhaul so I can claim the exercise points LOL!

    "Enthusiasm is one of the most powerful engines of success. When you do a thing, do it all you might. Put your whole soul into it. Stamp it with your own personality. Be active, be energetic, be enthusiastic and faithful, and you will accomplish your objective. Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm."

    "Though no one else can guarantee your success, you can guarantee it by making the commitment to do whatever you must do.
    You can guarantee it with your intention, your focus, your action and your persistence.
    Today, tomorrow, in any place, whatever the situation, you can make a difference, for your own life, and for your world.
    Grab that opportunity, make the most of it every chance you get, and you'll guarantee your own success."
