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: 153,092

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.

    It’s Raining Hearts

    It’s raining hearts;
    It’s storming flowers;
    We’re in for scattered
    Stardust showers.

    It’s drizzling chocolate,
    Pouring pies;
    We might be seeing
    Candy skies.

    Of all the weather
    There could be,
    Plain water seems
    A waste to me.

    When my boys were younger, they were on a competition dance team. Their very first competition number was Raining Men. In honor of our ITC I am posting the lyrics here on your page. Everytime that I hear the song, I can see my precious boys dancing and hear all the applause & screams. It was a wonderful time of my life.
