I'm 54, 5ft 4 and my weight has crept up to 10stone 13. Over the last 4 years. Which puts my BMI at 26.2 ( not good) And now I want to get rid of between 1.12 and 2stone of the fat invasion which has spread its self evenly all over my body.
I've just bought my self a Veryfit fit bit and my aim is to get up to 10,000 steps a day. This last week l managed 6,500 most days.
My plan is to view each day as one day closer to my goal - and not dwell on when things go off track, just get back on track right away.
I'm vegetarian and like to eat quite simple fresh food. All support advice, guidance really welcome. I'm often low in iron and b12 - so any ideas to boost this are welcome.
For the past 5 years I've struggled with my motivation and felt very much in the can't be bothered mode with pretty much everything, from socialising to doing things I enjoy such as Art & Design. Earlier this year I started doing pottery for the first time since I my art foundation in 1980s. I can feel my creativity urgies returning and am feeling like now Is the time to try small steps to turn my weight around.
My journey starts hear- my aim lose 2lb a week and be 9.3 by July 2017.
