I've come to SPARK to change .

I've struggled with comfort- type, unconcious eating of rubbish and haven't been a healthy weight for years now ( ranging between 1-2 stone overweight)

It's time to take responsibility and look after myself properly!

    Here at the moment but I'm off to Suffolk next week - to all the temptations at our Pizza Shop !!

    I have to keep pretending I'm not hungry when I'm there. My husband and the boys who work for us spend the whole time trying to feed me - but the harder they try the more stubborn I get !!

    I seem to have long bits where I don't loose then drop a pound then another long bit where I will even go up (But never admit to it on my tickerLOL) This week I have done really well and dropped 3lb - I discovered a bit of a likeing for strawberries and Anchor Light Cream which I 've been having for lunch and I have been doing a lot of digging in the garden - I don't know what I'm gonna do in the Winter as gardening is the only exercise I like apart from the strength training. I 've got a treadmill but I HATE it as it always makes my knees hurt so its the last place I go - I hope I can drop a few more pounds over the summer so that it will be easier when I have to resort to it again - failing that I will just have to turn into Ally Mcbeal and do a bit of mad dancing round the house or something !!! MAD or FAT what a choice LOL !
