I'm Laura, aka Zoundz, and I live with my husband and many pets in West Cork, Ireland. Together we run the NFRS registered Bongo Fury Rattery, breeding Cinnamon Pearl and related varieties and Russian Silver and related varieties. I enjoy a wide variety of hobbies, needle felting, sewing and other needle craft, darts, animal care/showing/breeding, photography to name but a few. I'm heavily involved in birdwatching too, and am web admin for the local birdwatching committee.

My Goals:
I want to lose weight for health reasons,m and to be happy with the way I look... my goals are to get down to a healthy weight 9 stone would keep me happy, and also a size where I can buy clothes I love, instead of just ones that fit!

My Program:
I am exercising daily, with my exercise bike and Wii Fit, and also long walks on the weekend when I have time. I am eating healthily, not following any faddy diets, and I am attempting the Paul McKenna Hypnotic Gastric Band, but the jury's out on whether that's working...

Personal Information:
I am from West Cork, in beautiful Republic of Ireland! :) I live with my husband and our pets in a very old farmhouse in the middle of nowhere. It's very scenic, and I love it here! I am really trying to lose weight and save money so we can do a bit of traveling before we decide to embark on having kids - besides, I want to be fit and healthy for that.

Other Information:
Favourite Authors: Irvine Welsh, Charles Dickens, Kazuo Ishiguro, Herman Hesse... I like anything set in the Victorian era or turn of the century, I love anything a bit Steampunk and filled with mystery! I also love Bill Bryson.

Favourite Films: American Psycho, Velvet Goldmine, Trainspotting, Clockwork Orange

Favourite TV: The Knick, Penny Dreadful, The Inbetweeners, Friday Night Dinner, Fawlty Towers, stand up comedy etc.

    Congrats on taking the first step into changing your life to a more healthier one by joining the site. Spark is filled with amazing people that will motivate, support and encourage you on your journey. There is so much to learn and discover here, take this one day at a time. A couple of things I would like to suggestion to make you Spark experience a great one.

    1. Make goals for yourself. Each month I make a list of what I want to accomplish that month and break them down to smaller goals to work with week by week. This way the BIG picture doesn't seem so big.

    2. Join Spark teams. There are tons of teams here and you will be able to find ones that fit to what you like or want in a team.

    The key to success here is to be active and you've already started by joining. You will find that everyone is willing to help you out if you need it. Spark friends are here for support, motivation and encouragement. Good luck on your journey to a healthier lifestyle! Again, welcome to the SP family!
