It's time for an exciting new phase as I met my initial goals plus became a SparkTeam leader. Finding courage to maintain this weight range through a healthier lifestyle and portion control. Though I love free food and I am an emotional / stress eater, promising myself "What Comes Off, Stays Off!" ~ Scootergirl in Oz.
"Courage is the willingness to be afraid and yet act anyway".
"A smile is a curve that straightens out a lot of things".

Hello, this was my original goal upon joining SparkPeople:
Been maintaining an 9kg (20lbs) weight loss achieved just before Xmas 2010. I am a stress/emotional eater and love free food.
New to having a support-group help me so would like to hear your tips, success and encouragement. Hoping Spark People will help me lose another 5kg (11lbs) by my May 19th birthday (target weight is 69kgs) and maintain it for 3 months before trying to lose another 5kg.

Thanks for looking me up. All the best for your own success!

My Goals:
Develop healthier eating habits to minimise the mindless stress eating that went wildly out of control during my MBA and SSE studies in the last quarter of 2011.

After losing 4 to 5 dress sizes, the "slowest loser" mindset is not working for me. Returning back to food tracking to reach and then maintain a Healthy/Normal BMI by May 2012 - in time for my birthday.

My Program:
- Feel amazing inside and out with the help of a gentle and friendly life coach.
- Walk the Harbour Bridge 4x/week.
- Train Beau Vegas (our staffy).
- Stationary biking when raining.
- Get my headspace into portion control and more sleep so I can better resist sugar and baked temptations.
- Practise rewarding myself without always using food.
- Giving myself permission to over-indulge twice a month.
- Enrolled in the MOSTMOM1 University of Hooping on World Hooping Day 11/11/11.
- Maybe get into Zumba?

    Hiiii!!! Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog, it's really lovely to know I'm being thought of!! :D

    First off, AWESOME that you are riding your bike to work! WOOO!! The vast majority of trips people take are under 10 miles from the home, and imagine if we used our bikes for these? I think its just so much FUN, on top of everything else that's awesome about it! What kind of bike do you ride?

    Hahaha, I love hearing about this house mate search! Looking for a suitable house mate is SO much like dating: you have to get along, ideally you could be friends even, you have to care if they have a comparable lifestyle and fiancial security ... = JUST LIKE DATING!! hehe. I would lOVE to read some blogs about your hunt for house mate love!! :)

    And finally, no, I wouldn't say that my new relationship is making me "blog strike", though in a way my new relationship has in some ways made me have less focus on those healthy things that I used to like to blog about! BUT, lately especially, he and I have been doing some cool things, so me thinks I'm due for some more bloggin'!! Thanks for the reminder! :D

    Fingers crossed for you on the new digs! I so understand your pain on finding a new place. It's never been this hard for me to find a place to live... Hoping it works out!

    I did get the place! It's not the one I thought I'd get, but it's in the same location and it turns out it's better! I'll be renting directly from the owner - a woman and husband about my age and they seem to be wonderful people, doing little things to get ready for renter. Planning to move in February. Hate the packing up part, but I think it's going to be a great place to live. :)
