Hi, my name is Judy (Jude) and I joined SP the end of March 09. I was hoping that this site would be helpful with my weight loss journey. I have spent years of trying every diet under the sun, and have been a yo-yo dieter. I think that my metabolism is dead :(
I am married, have 3 beautiful daughters, 3 handsome son-in-laws and 8 wonderful grandkids....therefore the username Nanniof8 :)
I deal with many health issues including Diabetes, osteoarthritis in both my knees, rotor cuff tendenitis and was born with Klipple-Feil Syndrome.
My hubby and I live in Ontario, Canada and have been married for 36 yrs. next week :)
Basically I need to lose a ton of weight and I keep getting frustrated and give up with the programs I have tried in the past.
The beginning of June I had heard about a program called the Gabriel Method on a radio program, I was so impressed with what Jon Gabriel said and with his story, so I went out the next Fri and bought his book.
The book is amazing and I searched here in SP for a group of people who were following the Gabriel Method and found some. I have lost 5 lbs since reading this book even though Jon said in his book that the weight will slowly come off at the beginning and then come off faster later on.
I feel more confident that I am on the right path with this program :)

My Goals:
My Goals : Hmmm....... well 1st of all to be healthier.
I think by being on a healthy food program (the Gabriel Method) and losing weight that all the rest will follow :)
The rest would be :
- lowering my blood sugar
- lowering my blood pressure
- having more energy
- hopefully less pain with my knees, I'm not sure if weight loss will help with the osteoarthritis.....I can dream :)
- feeling more confident about myself :)
- getting into an exercise program again
- maybe more to follow :)


My Program:
As of June 15/09 I am working on the Gabriel Method. I can't say that I have totally started the program BUT I have read the book, listen to the CD nightly and have added some things that Jon has recommended from his book. I have also joined a group here in SP that are also working the Gabriel Method into their lives.
So far so good :)

    Kia Ora Jude.... Thank you for stopping by my page what a nice surprise :)

    yes I'm really loving the warmer weather... it's already so hot i can't imagine what summer's going to be like.... but Christmas is so much more 'christmassy' in the cold, don't you think?
    is it cold enough to snow where you live?

    I love your name..... 8 grandies, that's so cool! aren't they such a delight? i am proud nana to a gorgeous 6month old baby girl .

    My weekend has just begun... I hope yours is wonderful...and well done with your weight loss... you're inspiring me :)
    Thank you, Ally

    Thanksgiving is a time
    For reviewing what we treasure,
    The people we hold dear,
    Who give us so much pleasure.


    Without you as my friend,
    Life would be a bore;
    Having you in my life
    Is what I’m thankful for.
