I am a 40 something mother of two teenagers that having found the willpower to give up smoking last year has decided to apply the same willpower to losing the extra pounds she gained in giving up smoking plus the extra ones she had anyway!

Member Since: 12/29/2010

Fitness Minutes: 7,035

My Goals:
to lose 80+ pounds by October 2011

complete 90 minutes of exercise per week

to ensure that my time is better organised so that I may have a de-tox of stress day of relaxationfor both my own and my family's well being!

save £1 a day towards the new wardrobe of clothes I will need for next year!

My Program:
Have started counting the calories, loving the iPhone app!!

Planning to start dance fitness via xBox with the support of my daughter who has already agreed to be my Zumba buddy :)

Personal Information:
I am originally from Ewell in Surrey but moved in 1999 to in North Yorkhire in the UK. Made a very good friend, Graham, via AOL chat rooms in the early 1990's and that friendship has grown into a relationship that is everything I could want and have been happily living together since 2007. I am employed full-time as a manageress of a bookies and I think it is managing my diet around awkward work schedules is going to be my biggest challenge! I am looking for support, friendship and diet buddies only :)

Other Information:
Love reading, will try anything, fave authors tho would have to be Lee Childs, Patricia Cornwall, Sue Grafton, Martina Cole and Stephanie Meyer! Enjoy films and listening to music (very ecletic taste) and as for tv... long as there is Dr Who then am a happy lady :)

    Hi, not been around much lately, but busy streak seems to be almost over. Just seen your status. You have lost 10lb? over how long? not in a week obviously? emoticon
    If it was a week, I would get some new scales or go see a doctor.
    I have been a bit up and down the past few weeks, but I think i should be over the hectic bit of the year now so going back to basics from Wednesday for a re-start booster.

    Excellent on the 10 lost! .. are you still visible to the naked eye??

    Thanks for becoming my buddy, much appreciated. Looks like you've been doing fantasically over 5 stone lost - that is such an amazing achievement.

    It's not always easy, but Spark People really does have so many tools to help keep the motivation going.

    Enjoy the rest of your Sunday, all the best

    Hi, my name is Carol and I'm looking for a buddy and wonder if you'd be interested. Take a look at my page and see what you think.

    I'm also in the UK, although near the south coast. Joined Spark People in April and finding it a fantasic help and motivator. Just lost my first stone - but need to keep it going!
