I am Sarah and I want to be healthy! Welcome to my Spark page!
I am currently learning how to cook my own healthy food and change my eating habits so that I can lose weight. I have just been diagonized with polycystic ovaries and a TSH(Thyroid stimulating hormone) imbalance - I need to change my eating habits so that I can start a family and keep these medical conditions under control.
I love to sew, embroider, take photographs, read, blog, bake and make paper crafts. I hope to add exercising to this list!

I am tracking my workouts with Fitbit and I would love to have more friends there and we can challenge, motivate and support each other. Add me:


I am gently easing myself into physical activity - I have a knee problem and it starts aching if I over do the exercising.

I'm a ovo-vegetarian and I also like dairy. I've never liked the taste of meat and I don't think I will be eating meat anytime now. I am trying to make the following changes to my diet:
* Eating breakfast every day.
* Drinking Lemon water first thing in the morning.
* Avoiding processed food.
* Eating more protein to meet my daily requirements of protein.
* No processed sugars - no baked items, no chocolates or candy. I have fruit if I feel a craving.
* No rice or bread after 7 pm as far as possible :)
* Drinking at least 8 cups of water a day.
