Hello everyone!!
I can't believe I'm saying this but I am really happy to be here and I feel, for the first time in years, that I am taking back control of my life rather than my weight controlling me!!
I have such a good life and I hope to conquer this last challenge........... Good luck to all & I hope to meet you somewhere along the journey
Sandie x

My Goals:

3. Take the weight off
4. Keep the weight off
5. Laugh at least once every day
6. Learn to like myself & appreciate what I have
7. Stop thinking 'it's all or nothing' & understand life happening is not my failure
8. Start Pilates classes
9. Ride my push bike once a week
10. Every success will be rewarded without the use of food or drink


My Program:
Take every day as it comes and stop being a perfectionist. If I have a bad day FORGIVE MYSELF xx



Personal Information:
I have been with my Husband for 20 years. We have 4 grown up children living in different parts of the world. My life in so many ways has been blessed & I know it. We are 54 years old, retired (& have been for 2 years) living in the most beautiful part of Turkey.


Other Information:
My hobbies are travelling, walking, my new puppy Tess, reading, gardening & I am starting a Pilates class on Monday 02/03/09.
We have just returned from a 12 week visit to see Michaela, our daughter, & her family in New Zealand. All my good weight loss efforts before the trip have unfortunately gone now & I am starting SP again 12lb heavier than when I started months ago. I know this is due to emotional eating (I'm really not sure when I will see them again) but I feel it is time to stop the self pity again and try to be the best me I can.
Summer is just around the corner friends so my goal is to enjoy it at least 2 stone lighter than I am now.

    Hi Sandie!

    I hope you are doing well and enjoying spring...if you are actually having spring yet where you live. Here its been pretty wet, but the trees are blooming and it's so beautiful.

    I just read in my recent publication of Bottom Line Health that Whole grains are linked to lowering blood pressure. The best amount of beneficial whole grains are approximently 52g daily. Just 1 cup of oatmeal is 30g so it's not hard to do if you have high blood pressure or know someone who does, let them know. Sorry, but I'm an information freak!

    Keep in touch and lets encourage one another as much as possible through this awesome website!

    THE JELLY BEAN PRAYER

    Red is for the blood he gave.
    Green is for the grass he made.
    Yellow is for the sun so bright.
    Orange is for the edge of night.
    Black is for the sins we made.
    White is for the grace he gave.
    Purple is for the hour of sorrow.
    Pink is for our new tomorrow.
    A bag full of jelly beans colorful and sweet
    is a prayer, a promise, a loved one’s treat.
    May the joy of Christ’s Resurrection fill your heart and bless your life!
    ~Author Unknown


    Have a super blessed Easter Sunday and may the Easter bunny take all the calories out of your treats leaving you only the healthiest ones!!!

    Most people associate Eggs with Easter because of culture. Whether you eat eggs or not, here are a few facts regarding eggs (that you probably already know, but humor me :))

    We know that the components of serum cholesterol (from a blood test) include HDL (good cholesterol) and LDL (bad cholesterol). People who consume one or two eggs a day show no effects on serum levels. Eggs contain 14 vitamins and minerals and are a source of lecithin and essential fatty acids.

    Eggs contain vitamins, A, D, E, B1, B2, B6, B12, folate and pantothenic acid (B5) as well as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, iron and zinc. 71 calories, no carbohydrates and five grams of fat! They also contain all nine essential amino acids necessary for proper metabolism.

    The lecithin found in eggs emulsifies fats and improves digestion. It supports liver function, reduces the chance of cholesterol-clogged arteries and prevents the formation of kidney and gallstones. It also serves as a source of choline and inositol, which support proper nerve transmission and brain function.

    Be aware that salmonella bacteria, usually transferred on the eggshell surface, are common in poultry in North America. It’s best to use cooked eggs. Wash your hands when handling eggshells, and refrigerate eggs or egg preparations as soon as possible.
