The weather has turned cold, and I love, love, love to wrap my hands round a mug of something warm and delicious. Flavoured coffees, Mexican hot chocolate, golden milk - a time for nurturing and a hug-in-a-mug!

When food is being limited - a hot, indulgent, drink can be the difference between staying on-track, and falling off the waggon.

I am 63 yrs old, 5'3" tall and weigh around 8 stone (112lbs) - so I'm in the 'healthy' range. My goal is to maintain this.

I have learned to manage my behaviour around food with the NoS diet. Three 'proper meals' a day - no snacks, sweets or seconds on weekdays - with some freedom at the weekends and on special days like birthdays. Good old-fashioned regular eating pattern! My behaviour around food is being modified very happily with this system. So glad I found it. Check out the NoS team page if you're curious!

I want to be strong, fit, supple, happy, healthy, full of energy!

I'm keen to be lean!

".. every pound of weight loss results in five pounds of stress taken off your knees, seven pounds off your ankles, and a whopping ten pounds off your spinal discs!" it's worth the effort!

My Goals:
These are my physical goals: I want to have achieved the following:-

1) to get my weight down to 109lbs by the end of 2018. I have a personal firewall of 115lbs

2) to keep my waist under 29"

3) to maintain a supple and strong body into my later years

4)To be a slim, strong, fit woman!

October 2018: 8 stone (114lbs) BMI 20.2 (normal range) WHR 0.82 (average risk - avocado shape)


My Program:
I am currently following a daily strength-training programme on the darebee website which is working well for me - I track this on the darebee website.

For the behavioural/emotional reasons for eating: Linda Spangle's 100 Days of Weight Loss programme

NoS diet - No snacks, sweets or seconds except on days that begin with S.

I have started eating according to the seasonal recommendations of Ayruveda which is suiting me well. I am slowly adopting some of the practices - like eating between 10am and 6pm and having most of my food between 10am and 2pm, with just a small meal around 6pm to finish the day's eating.

I eat a vegetarian diet with minimal amounts of dairy. I eat eggs only if it's socially awkward not to! I try to keep certain carbs low: wheat & sugar mainly.



Personal Information:
I live by the sea in the South West of the UK. I work full-time to provide services for adults with learning disabilities. I am a Nichiren Buddhist.
