I have been yo-yo dieting for over half my life and by the end of October 2012 had got to the highest weight I had ever been and decided I really had to do something about it before I began to have really severe health problems. I found SparkPeople in March 2008 and made good progress during the first six months but fell by the wayside when my father died and I became responsible for looking after my very demanding stepmother. I must have tried about 4 or 5 times to get back on track and sparking again, but it just didn't seem to happen.

After a trial couple of weeks at the beginning of November 2012 getting in a bit more exercise and tracking my nutrition I finally got back on track with Sparking and have kept it up ever since. I am really determined now to keep on going, come what may. If I have bad days, I am not going to abandon the battle, but will put it behind me and get back on track taking one day at a time.

I seem to have been dieting for most of my adult life and the mistake I made in the past was to eat too little and cut out most fat from my diet. Spark has taught me that this isn't the way to go and I use the nutrition tracker every day to help myself eat healthily.


Member Since: 4/14/2011

Fitness Minutes: 153,975

My Goals:
I was 60 on in June 2012 and struggled until the end of October to try and get back on track, and then it just seemed to happen overnight and I managed to keep on track for over year, but then I fell and haven't managed to stay on track for any length of time since. My goal is to be at my target weight by the time I am 65, if not before.


My Program:
In January 2013 I joined Spark Coach, invested in a set of Withings scales and fitbit one to make myself more accountable. I also joined a gym with a swimming pool.

My aim is get get in 10,000 steps a day and hit the gym twice a week if not more. I want to begin cycling again and I dig over the garden and grow vegetables in the summer.



Personal Information:
I am from the Cotswolds in the UK and work from home teaching music - piano, flute and more recently violin which keeps me busy for up to 50 hours or more a week what with preparation and practise on top of the lessons I give.


Other Information:
I don't like exercise much, but love gardening. I do enjoy swimming and cycling, but would still prefer sitting reading a good book, or my Kindle, or on the computer. Maybe this will change as I get fitter. We'll see.

    Write it on your heart
    that every day is the best day in the year.
    He is rich who owns the day, and no one owns the day
    who allows it to be invaded with fret and anxiety.

    Finish every day and be done with it.
    You have done what you could.
    Some blunders and absurdities, no doubt crept in.
    Forget them as soon as you can, tomorrow is a new day;
    begin it well and serenely, with too high a spirit
    to be cumbered with your old nonsense.

    This new day is too dear,
    with its hopes and invitations,
    to waste a moment on the yesterdays.

    -Ralph Waldo Emerson

    All in a Word by Aileen Fisher

    T for time to be together, turkey, talk, and tangy weather.
    H for harvest stored away, home, and hearth, and holiday.
    A for autumn's frosty art, and abundance in the heart.
    N for neighbors, and November, nice things, new things to remember.
    K for kitchen, kettles' croon, kith and kin expected soon.
    S for sizzles, sights, and sounds, and something special that abounds.

    That spells ~~~THANKS---for joy in living and a jolly good Thanksgiving.
