This year has been hard on my waistline but now I'm ready to get back on track.
I will focus on what I need to do and remember that it doesn't mean I am neglecting my Husband and Children.

Member Since: 6/15/2007

Fitness Minutes: 169,322

My Goals:
The number I've always had in my mind is 147 pounds but the way I feel in my clothes and being toned and healthy is more important. I think if I can feel confident and look in the mirror without pulling "the face" I won't care what the scales says.

My Program:
Over the last week I have stopped tracking my food I am just eating what I want to and stopping when I've had enough, so far I feel so much better and have so much more time for other things.
I like fitnessblender workouts and I'm currently following one of their programmes and also doing a couch to 5k app on my phone.
I also like pilates and using youtube videos. Lucy Wyndham Read is my go to for following along in front of TV.

Personal Information:
I'm 39 yrs old. I live in Liverpool England I'm married and I have 2 children. The last time I was happy with the way I looked was before we started trying for my Daughter the baby weight is still there and now she's 9 yrs old eek!

Other Information:
I love to read, Stephen King and Dean Koontz are my favourites.
I love cooking and I'm getting quite good at cooking ahead lately.
I like films and binge watching TV series I'm always carrying my laptop from room to room while I'm cleaning.
Also like a good podcast Corinne Crabtree is my favourite.

    Thanks for the blog comment! Trust me, it took a LONG time to get this attitude. It's a new approach for me but I'll be danged if it's not working! :-) Good luck on getting into the next size. We'll get there, just gotta keep on plugging away! WOO HOO!

    Thank you so much for the encouragement on my blog and sharing your thoughts... I never realized that not wanting to bother someone was a common theme before now. It is comforting that other people work with the same struggle!

    The Team is up and running "The Friend Project-Taking it to the Streets" I'd love to see you there.

    Great to have you stop by the JUST FOR TODAY challenge! Looks like you're cruising on your weight-loss goals! Good job! Oh, and brushing and mopping all the downstairs rooms is NOT a small challenge! emoticon Well, maybe for you, but that would be HUGE for me.
